        Historia delle rivolutioni di Francia, con la continuatione della guerra frà le due corone, con un aggionta d'altri accidenti occorsi in Europa sin' alla pace de' Pirenei, del conte Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato.

      Per gl'Eredi di Pietro della Place, In Colonia 1670 - Petit in-4 (15 x 23 cm) de (18) pp. 1 f.bl. 865 pp., maroquin rouge, dos orné à nerfs, encadrement d'un triple filet doré sur les plats, armes sur les plats, chiffre répété au dos, roulette sur les coupes, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Rare histoire italienne de la Fronde écrite et publiée par un contemporain, l'aventurier natif de Vicence en Vénétie, comte Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (1606-1678) venu à Paris vivre cette période troublée au point d'être naturalisé français en 1653. Historia di Francia parut une première fois en 1655, quand Priorato eut glané de nombreux renseignements auprès du comte de Pagan. Son récit impartial couvre les années 1648 à 1654, les détails sont minutieux, les appréciations parfois contestables (sur Mademoiselle de Montpensier). Militaire, diplomate, enquêteur et historien, Gualdo Priorato publia aussi une histoire du ministère Mazarin (1669, traduite en 1671 préférable selon Lenglet-Dufresnoy à celle d'Aubery) et une relation de la guerre de trente ans qu'il vécut de l'intérieur au service de plusieurs puissances européennes : il combattit les Espagnols avec Maurice de Nassau, fut le premier gentilhomme de la reine Christine de Suède puis conseiller et historiographe de l'empereur Léopold Ier. Superbe et précieux exemplaire de la bibliothèque personnelle du ministre Jean-Baptiste Colbert, avec armes dorées poussées au centre des plats, chiffre JBC poussé dans les entre-nerfs, et mention manuscrite « Bibliothecae Colbertinae » apposée au titre. Comme l'on sait, si les manuscrits composant cette immense collection entrèrent à la Bibliothèque du Roi en 1732 pour la somme de 300.000 livres, les imprimés (au nombre de 50 000.volumes) furent dispersés en 1728 par l'abbé Charles-Eléonor Colbert de Seignelay (il en existe un catalogue en trois volumes). De la bibliothèque d'Alphonse Chassant avec son ex libris monogrammé et la devise « Vita Sine Litteris Mors Est ». Alphonse Chassant (1808-1907), paléographe et historien de l'art, conservateur du Musée d?Evreux publia quelques ouvrages savants d'héraldique et paléographie ; il a rédigé la note bibliographique contrecollée en tête d'exemplaire sur l'histoire de Gualdo qu'il attribuait à tort à Pierre Stockmans. 2 feuillets liminaires (titre, dédicace) anciennement réemmargés, traces de mouillure en fin d'exemplaire, mors légèrement frottés.

        Leiden panorama - Christian Hagen.

      LUGDUNUM BATAVORUMProfiel van de stad Leiden vanuit het zuiden. Kopergravure samengesteld uit drie afzonderlijk gedrukte bladen. Vervaardigd door Christian Hagen in 1670, deels gebaseerd op een gezicht op de stad uit 1647. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 35 x 178 cm.Aan het eind van de 16e en in de eerste helft van de 17e eeuw werd de bebouwing in het middeleeuwse stadsdeel sterk verdicht. Door overbevolking, verschuivingen in de sociale samenstelling van de bevolking en functieverandering van huizen en grachten, werden erven en binnenplaatsen volgebouwd met achtersteegjes; de zgn. poorten. De daaraan gelegen arbeiderswoningen waren zeer klein en vaak van slechte kwaliteit. Om te kunnen voorzien in het steeds nijpender gebrek aan ruimte werd de stad in de eerste helft van de 17e eeuw in een aantal uitleggen fors uitgebreid. Voor een deel zijn het voor de hand liggende opvullingen van relatief kleine percelen tegen de oude stadsgrens aan. Bij al deze uitbreidingen heeft het stadsbestuur met wisselend succes geprobeerd de inrichting van de kavels en de bebouwing aan regels te onderwerpen. De uitgangspunten daarbij waren een mengsel van stedenbouwkundige, sociale, milieutechnische en welstandelijke argumenten. Door de grote aantallen arbeiders en kleine ambachtslui, werd er in de nieuwe wijken vooral voor hen gebouwd. De stad probeerde door de aanleg van brede, voorname grachten als de Oude Vest ook voornamere bebouwing te stimuleren, maar de eenvoudige en eenvormige kleine en middelgrote huizen beheersten het straatbeeld.Na voltooiing van de stadsuitbreidingen werd in 1667 opdracht verleend voor het vervaardigen een nieuwe grote kaart van Leiden. Ter meerdere glorie hoorde daar ook een profiel van de stad bij. Op dat moment heeft de stad ca. 65.000 inwoners. Op dit profiel zien we de bestaande stadspoorten vervangen door nieuwe. Deze poorten van stadsarchitect Willem van der Helm hadden een meer representatieve dan een defensieve functie. Ze waren minder zwaar en rijker gedecoreerd met natuursteen en beeldhouwwerk dan hun voorgangers.Prijs: € 4.950,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        THE QUEEN-LIKE CLOSET; OR, RICH CABINET: STORED WITH ALL MANNER OF RARE RECEIPTS

      London: R. Lowndes, 1670. FIRST EDITION n. This is the rare and sought after first edition of a popular book of recipes and home remedies by one of the first Englishwomen to make a living by writing. Hannah Wolley (ca. 1622 - ca. 1674) had worked as a healer before becoming an author, using knowledge gleaned from her mother and sisters to prepare salves, syrups, and other treatments for the pupils at her husband's school and her neighbors in Essex. The present work begins with a series of healing waters for all manner of ills, including the plague that had recently ravaged England. Also, there is a discussion of consumption, a frequent--and often fatal--condition for which she recommends (what sounds like extremely unappealing) "snail water." Additionally, there are waters to be used externally, to diminish the scars of smallpox. She continues with more substantial concoctions, from ales, preserves, and syrups to cakes, breads, and savories. The second part of the work focuses more on cookery, with recipes for "fish, flesh, and pastry" and sample menus for "extravagant feasts," "lesser feasts," and "fish days." The work ends with an alphabetical index, an extremely useful feature not always found in early cookery books. Wolley was twice widowed, and it was the reduced circumstances of her single state that led her into publishing. She produced half a dozen works on the household arts, and gained an international reputation. The present work appeared in two German editions (1674 and 1678) under the title "Frauenzimmers Zeitvertreib." Early owner Thomasin Francklyn (d. 1721) was a Hampshire woman of some property, who believed in passing her wealth on to the women in her family. Her will, on file at the National Archives, lists bequests of five to 10 pounds to her sons, grandsons, and other relatives, the considerable sum of 20 pounds to each to her two granddaughters, and the balance of her estate to her two daughters. Later editions of Wolley's "Closet" show up in the marketplace from time to time, but our first edition is rarely seen: there seems to have been only one other copy of the 1670 printing at auction in the past 40 years.. 141 x 82 mm. (5 1/2 x 3 1/4"). 5 p.l., 383, [1] pp, [17] leaves (lacking first and last blanks, as in the Cagle copy). FIRST EDITION. Later (19th century?) calf, covers ruled in blind, raised bands, two brown morocco labels. Engraved frontispiece with five vignettes showing women at work concocting recipes. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Charles Kilburn; verso of frontispiece with (quite faded) notes in an early hand; verso of p. 383 with early ink ownership inscription of Thomasin Francklyn. Cagle 1062; Vicaire 878; Wing W-3282. Joints and extremities significantly rubbed (but no cracking), tiny chip to tail of spine, title page lightly browned, head edge trimmed close with minor loss to running title, occasional small stains (as one would expect in a cookbook), small repair to leaf C11 with tape, paper imperfection causing half-inch hole in margin of F11, other trivial imperfections, but all of these defects minor, and, in the main, an excellent copy--especially for an antique cookbook--generally clean, fresh, and well preserved in a sound binding. This is the rare and sought after first edition of a popular book of recipes and home remedies by one of the first Englishwomen to make a living by writing.

Hinges cracked, substantial loss to blank pastedowns, additional engraved title laid down with some marginal loss and red wax soiling, sporadic dust soiling throughout, occasional ink annotations and markings, occasional damp-staining, particularly to top half of leaves of gatherings L-O and bottom half of gathering Oo. Joseph Moxon (1627-1691), printer, maker of globes, hydrographer to Charles II, and fellow of the Royal Society. A Tutor to Astronomie and Geographie, first published by Moxon in 1669, supersedes the author's own translation of W. J. Blau's similar title of 1654. The work, founded upon the systems of Tycho Brahe and Ptolemy, instructs on the use of globes in matters of astronomical, geographical and navigational reckoning, and in the solving of problems in trigonometrical and astrological calculation. In addition to the primary treatise Moxon includes a catalogue of stars and their constellations, providing reasons as to their naming and an account of their mythical significance. The work concludes with a discourse upon the progress of the astronomical sciences, a fascinating exposition of the history of that field of study, from early civilisation to the middle seventeenth century.

        Pensées de M. Pascal sur la religion et sur quelques autre sujets, qui ont esté trouvées aprés sa mort parmy ses papiers

      Guillaume Desprez, Paris 1670 - "Édition originale" of Blaise Pascal's posthumously collected thoughts on religion, a masterpiece of French prose. Pascal established his brilliance early, inventing the mechanical calculator at the age of eighteen, developing the field of probability theory with Pierre de Fermat, and breaking new ground in projective geometry, hydrodynamics, and hydrostatics. One night in 1654, Pascal experienced a mystical vision that caused him to renounce his scientific career in favor of religious contemplation; after his death, a scrap of paper was found sewn into the lining of his coat containing a description of that night: "Joie, joie, joie, pleurs de joie." Pascal joined the Jansenists, a sect of radical Augustinian Catholics. In his controversial Lettres provinciales (1656-1657), he took aim at the casuistry of the Jesuits, laying the groundwork for church reform. He then turned to a defense of his faith, recording his thoughts even as his health failed. His unfinished notes, now housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, were compiled after his death by Jansenist editors, and issued as the Pensées. Pascal engaged directly with the philosophical debates of the day, notably those raised by Descartes and Montaigne: "Le coeur a ses raisons que le raison ne connaît point." Brilliantly argued, Pascal's work proved magnetic even to those who disagreed with him: Voltaire described Pascal as a "giant" he wanted to "battle." Pascal can be logical and forceful, as in Pascal's Wager, when he places probability theory in service to theology. He can also be lyrical: "L'homme n'est qu'un roseau le plus faible de la nature; mais c'est un roseau pensant." This 1670 issue was preceded by an issue of about thirty copies, labeled the "préoriginale" by bibliographer Le Guern, printed at the end of 1669 by Guillaume Desprez for submission to the censors: only two copies of the 1669 issue are known to survive, both in French institutions. Desprez reprinted the Pensées three times in 1670, and two other editions with Desprez's name on the title page, but not printed by him, appeared that year as well. This edition is the earliest 1670 issue, and the earliest obtainable edition of the Pensées, with Desprez's woodcut cipher on the title page and continuous pagination from 1 to 365. Text in French. PMM 152. Maire, Bibliographie générale des oeuvres de Blaise Pascal, IV: 101, no. 3; Le Guern, ?uvres complètes / Pascal, II, 1597, ed. O. This copy is handsomely bound in Jansenist style by Thompson of Paris, active between 1842 and 1870. It was purchased in Paris by Elias Horry Frost in 1856; a successful cotton broker, Frost built one of the finest private libraries in the American South. A fine copy of a landmark book, in the earliest obtainable edition. Twelvemo: (ixxxii) 1-365 (21).

Rechts de burcht, lakenhal, universiteit met hortus en de door geldgebrek nimmer verder dan de fundamenten gebouwde Nieuw Gefundeerde Kerk. Bovenaan de door festoenen verbonden wapens van de stad en van de vier regerende burgemeesters. Op de kaart zijn cartouches met allegorische figuren afgebeeld met genummerde aanwijzing van namen van straten en gebouwen en van de schout en 40 raden.Aan het eind van de 16de- en in de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw werd de bebouwing in het middeleeuwse stadsdeel sterk verdicht. Door overbevolking, verschuivingen in de sociale samenstelling van de bevolking en functieverandering van huizen en grachten, werden erven en binnenplaatsen volgebouwd met achtersteegjes; de zgn. poorten. De daaraan gelegen arbeiderswoningen waren zeer klein en vaak van slechte kwaliteit. Om te kunnen voorzien in het steeds nijpender gebrek aan ruimte werd de stad in de eerste helft van de 17e eeuw in een aantal uitleggen fors uitgebreid. Voor een deel zijn dit voor de hand liggende opvullingen van relatief kleine percelen tegen de oude stadsgrens aan. Bij al deze uitbreidingen heeft het stadsbestuur met wisselend succes geprobeerd de inrichting van de kavels en de bebouwing aan regels te onderwerpen. De uitgangspunten daarbij waren een mengsel van stedenbouwkundige, sociale, milieutechnische en welstandelijke argumenten. Door de grote aantallen arbeiders en kleine ambachtslui, werd er in de nieuwe wijken vooral voor hen gebouwd. De stad probeerde door de aanleg van brede, voorname grachten als de Oude Vest ook voornamere bebouwing te stimuleren, maar de eenvoudige en eenvormige kleine en middelgrote huizen beheersten het straatbeeld.Na voltooiing van de stadsuitbreidingen werd in 1667 opdracht verleend voor het vervaardigen een nieuwe grote kaart van Leiden. Op dat moment heeft de stad ca. 65.000 inwoners. In overeenstemming zowel met de nieuwe omvang als met de vermaardheid van Leiden, moest het een waardig stuk propaganda worden.De landmeter van Rijnland Jan Dou (1642-1690) heeft meer dan anderhalf jaar nodig voor de ontwerptekening klaar is. Voor het graveren en uitgeven wordt eerst de bekende Joan Blaeu gecontracteerd, maar door een grote brand die Blaeu"s drukkerij in vlammen doet opgaan, wordt bijna al het werk verricht door Christiaen van Hagen (ca. 1635-1688).Naar de grote plattegrond met stadsgezichten die uiteindelijk verschijnt in 1674, wordt in 1675 ook een kleinere wandkaart gemaakt (de zgn. 'Kleine Hagen').Literatuur: E. Pelinck, "De kaart van Hagen"' in Leids Jaarboekje (1954), pp. 113-127Prijs: € 21.500,- (incl. lijst).

        Le Cuisinier François par le sieur de La Varenne

      Paris: Cie des imprimeurs et marchands libraires associés, 1670. Duodecimo, 356, [2] pages. Lacking pages 139-148, 157-180, 189-190, 193-212, 311-318, 287-288. Lacking 66 pages in all. Notaker indicates that the book is 358 pages, but mis-numbered "248" on the final page. In fact, the number "248" is part of the unnumbered two-page table of contents, and is merely the page number of the item on the first line of the second page of the table. An early edition of a cornerstone book of French cuisine, originally published in 1651. Written after ten years in the employ of Louis Chaalon du Bled, Le Cuisinier François, reflects the changes in French cooking that had been made since the 1540s, when the previous French cookbooks had been issued, a gap of more than one hundred ten years. The book includes the first appearances of many recipes and techniques, including dishes served, "au naturel", "au bleu", and "a la mode". But the greatest change was in the use of spices, with pepper, cloves, and nutmeg the only ones used for savory dishes, putting aside sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and mace for use only with sweet dishes. (see introduction to Hyman, The French Cook). Incomplete, as mentioned above, but still handsome in hand-lettered, full vellum. And this printing is very rare. [OCLC locates just one copy of this printing, at the BNF; no auction records for this printing; Notaker 616.30; Vicaire 497].

      Paris Pierre Bresche 1670 - Original-Ganzledereinband, Einband stark gelockert, ohne Rücken, Einband beschabt und mit Fehlstellen. Fester Buchblock mit Rotschnitt und sauberen Seiten, Seiten papierbedingt etwas gebräunt. Es fehlen die Vorsatzblätter, das Titelblatt und die ersten 2 Seiten. Seite 3 (Aii) - Seite 924, (14 S.)

Der Buchblock und die Seiten sind sauber und fest. César Egasse Du Boulay (Bulaeus) (1610 - 1678) est connu surtout comme historien de l'université de Paris. Reçu dans les ordres au Mans, en 1629, il enseigna d'abord à Poitiers, puis il se fit agréger à Paris parmi les maîtres de la nation de France, et il y professa près de quarante ans les humanités, puis la rhétorique, au collège de Navarre. Après avoir géré plusieurs fois les charges de procureur, censeur, questeur examinateur de la nation de France, il fut élu recteur de l'université en octobre 1661, et fut continué jusqu'en mars 1662. Pendant son rectorat, il sollicita et obtint la charge importante de greffier de l'université, devenue vacante par la mort de Quintaine, le 17 décembre 1661. Personne n'était sans doute plus capable de la bien remplir, car aucun n'avait étudié plus à fond l'organisation compliquée et souvent capricieuse de l'ancienne université. Aucun n'a plus travaillé à faire connaître ce corps dont il fut pendant trente ans un des membres les plus actifs et les plus influents (Wikipedia). César Egasse Du Boulay (1610 - 1678), a french historian in the beginning of the seventeenth century. After teaching humanities in the College of Navarre he occupied important positions in the University of Paris, especially those of rector and historian of the university. His main work is the "Historia Universitatis Parisiensis" covering the period from the supposed foundation of the university by Charlemagne 800 to 1600. The first three volumes published in 1665 were censured by the university. To justify himself the author wrote the "Notæ ad censuram . . ." (Paris, 1667). The censors appointed by the king found nothing blameworthy in the work, and the last three volumes were published till 1673. Du Boulay's history is very important on account of the many original documents which it reproduces, but is value is lessened by the insufficient judgement and criticism of the author.

        Epicurus's morals, collected partly out of his own Greek text, in Diogenes Laertius, and partly out of the Rhapsodies of Marcus Antoninus, Plutarch, Cicero, & Seneca. And faithfully Englished.

      London: H. Herringman at the Blew Anchor... 8vo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). Frontis., [18] ff., 201, [1] p.. 1670 A beautiful example of => a somber binding by one of the Queens' Binders encases this third edition of => the first translation into English of Epicurus's Morals, first published in 1656. Probably the Queens' Binder B, arguably the best artisan of four Restoration binders employed by Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, fashioned this elegant blind-tooled black morocco binding, each board bearing the B binder's distinctive all-over design of "four-petalled conventional flower[s] springing from a pair of leaves" (Nixon, p. 100), framed by drawer handle motifs, acorns, grapes, and pointellé decoration. The spine is blind-tooled with raised bands and the title gilt on a red leather label; the endpapers are marbled and the edges black (faded). The text is printed in roman and italic, ruled in red throughout, with sidenotes inset within the red ruled border. An => engraved portrait of Epicurus faces the title-page. The translator, Walter Charleton (1620–1707), was named physician-in-ordinary to Charles I shortly after graduating from Oxford, and published numerous books on natural philosophy as well as physiology and antiquity. To the various writings by the philosopher Epicurus (341–270) included herein, Charleton added an Apology for Epicurus, building a Christian framework for the following chapters. Provenance: A later pencil inscription on the front free endpaper indicates this book may have once been in the library at => Dyrham Park, a 17th-century English mansion now overseen by the National Trust. Binding as above, with joints worn (especially at front joint's ends) and board corners scuffed, these gently refurbished; front hinge (inside) cracked but holding well; red leather spine label partially lost; frontispiece portrait excised and mounted on verso of front fly-leaf. A copy rather remarkably unspotted, with an inkstain in one outer margin and a brown chemical stain on another leaf, neither affecting text; while a shift in paper during printing resulted in => an instructive typographical anomaly, with the text being printed at an angle on the lower outer corner of one page. A good book, a good binding, and a good copy.

        Philosophia S. Scripturae interpres; exercitatio paradoxa.

      Uncommon first edition with a false imprint: Important hermeneutical treatise, arguing that the Bible should be interpreted through Cartesian rationality. Originally published anonymously, the work was for some time attributed to Benedictus de Spinoza, who was both a personal friend and mentor to Meijer (also sometimes called Ludwig or Louis Meyer); it rapidly gained a fair amount of notoriety, was condemned, inspired a number of rebuttals and defenses, went through several editions in both Latin and Dutch, and influenced Spinoza's writings. Famously, it called for a response from Spinoza, nothing less than his Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, published anonymously in 1670.Provenance: Ownership signature of "A. Schülin," Amsterdam, [16]92. An undeciphered 18th-century ownership "ex libris" opposite the title-page.

Mit einem Kupfertitel und fünfundzwanzig teils doppelblattgroßen, teils mehrfach gefalteten Kupfertafeln und siebzig großen Textkupfern. Zu Amsterdam, Bey Jacob Meurs, Buchhändlern und Kupfferstechern auf der Keysersgraft, nicht weit von der Westerkirche in der Stadt Meurs 1670. 2°. Kupfertitel, Titel, (2) Bll., 443, (9) S. Pergamentband d.Zt. mit durchgezogenen Bünden. Etwas fleckig, Pergament an der Oberkante des Rückdeckels 4cm aufgeplatzt. Erste dt. Ausgabe, korrigierter Druck (Dünnhaupt 68.2 [Zesen]: „Eines der schönsten Reisewerke des 17.Jh.s“; Bruckner, Bibliographical-Cat. 389ii; Cordier, Japan 384). – Ohne Vorsätze, Innengelenke mit Wurmgängen, Kupfertitel mit kleinen, fachgerechten Restaurierungen, anfangs einige alte Randanstreichungen, die mehrfach gefaltete Karte mit hinterlegten Einrissen, eine Kupfertafel etwas schmalrandiger (ergänzt), gelegentlich etwas fleckig, wenige kurze Randeinrisse. Trotzdem ein gutes Exemplar des sonst oft zerlesenen Buchs. Die niederländ. Orig.-Ausgabe Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen der Oost-Indische Maatschappij . erschien zuerst 1669, im gleichen Jahr die deutsche, ein Jahr später die englische Übersetzung, betitelt Atlas Japannensis. Being remarkable . Die deutlich seltenste aller Ausgaben ist die deutsche, die darüberhinaus, was wenig bekannt ist, eine der umfangreichsten Übersetzungsarbeiten FILIPP VON ZESENs (Priorau/Dessau 1618 – 1689 Hamburg) ist, dessen sprachreformerischer, neologistischer Stil diese Ausgabe vor den anderen bemerkenswert macht. ZESEN, der nach langen früheren Aufenthalten in Holland die weltoffene Atmosphäre dort zu schätzen wusste, war im Frühjahr 1669 erneut nach Amsterdam gekommen, wohl wegen dieser Übersetzung für den Verleger J.MEURS, für den er schon 1665 J.NIEUHOFs Gesandtschaft . an den Tartarischen Chan verdeutscht hatte. In ungleich höherem Maß als dem Text des ARNOLD MONTANUS (1625 – 1683), von Haus aus Theologe, kommt der besonders in Bezug auf dessen theologische, moralisierende Exkurse sehr freien Übersetzung ZESENs auch literarischer Rang zu. Der Urdruck der deutschen Ausgabe mit 1669 im Impressum wies eine Vielzahl von Paginierungsfehlern auf, die noch während des Drucks im stehenden Satz nach und nach korrigiert wurden, was der Vergleich mehrerer Exemplare mit unterschiedlich vielen stehengebliebenen Fehlern belegt. Die Exemplare unterscheiden sich jedoch auch in der Beschriftung der Kupfertafeln: allen gemeinsam ist der niederländische Text, während in den verglichenen Exemplaren variierend deutscher und/oder englischer dazu gestochen ist; dies lässt sich sogar bei Exemplaren der niederländ. Ausgabe von 1669 nachweisen. Es dürften also zum Einen kaum zwei völlig identisch zusammengestellte Exemplare ausgeliefert worden sein, zum Anderen trifft die Bezeichnung „neue“ oder „Titel-“ Auflage für Exemplare mit Jahr 1670 nicht im eigentlichen Sinn den Sachverhalt. Das prächtig ausgestattete Buch ist ein Ausdruck des Goldenen Zeitalters der Niederlande, als vor allem der Überseehandel, maßgeblich durch die Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC), dem Land Macht, Reichtum und kulturelle Blüte bescherte. Was Europa in diesen Jahren über Asien erfuhr, verdankt es wesentlich den Berichten der Handelsreisenden, dies gilt in besonderem Maß für Japan, wo die Gesellschaft ein Handelsmonopol besaß [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TRUTH RESCUED FROM IMPOSTURE. OR A BRIEF REPLY TO A MEER RAPSODIE OF LIES, FOLLY, AND SLANDER; BUT A PRETENDED ANSWER, TO THE TRYAL OF W. PENN, AND W. MEAD &c. WRIT AND SUBSCRIB'D S.S

      [ London], 1670. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Uniformly tanned and foxed. About very good. One of the most important incidents in the early life of William Penn was his trial in September 1670 on charges of unlawful assembly and disturbing the peace. He and another Quaker, William Mead, were tried in the Old Bailey. The bench attempted to intimidate the jury into a guilty verdict, and although both men were found not guilty, they both served time in jail. In 1670 a pamphlet on the trial was produced, loosely attributed to Penn and called THE PEOPLES ANCIENT AND JUST LIBERTIES ASSERTED.... Samuel Starling, the Lord Mayor of London and one of the judges in the trial, responded with a pamphlet of his own the same year. In the present pamphlet Penn, assisted by Quaker lawyer Thomas Rudyard, offers his spirited response to Starling's work. "This pamphlet reflects a new side of [William Penn], for instead of the reasonable and cultivated gentleman and Quaker, we find a deeply incensed young man defending his father's honor [Penn's father helped secure his release from prison] and slashing out at his persecutor" - Bronner & Fraser. Penn defends his father's honor and military record, reviews the facts of his trial, and considers the power and role of juries. An important and scarce early work on the role of the judiciary, by the future founder of Pennsylvania.

Voor een deel zijn dit voor de hand liggende opvullingen van relatief kleine percelen tegen de oude stadsgrens aan. Bij al deze uitbreidingen heeft het stadsbestuur met wisselend succes geprobeerd de inrichting van de kavels en de bebouwing aan regels te onderwerpen. De uitgangspunten daarbij waren een mengsel van stedenbouwkundige, sociale, milieutechnische en welstandelijke argumenten. Door de grote aantallen arbeiders en kleine ambachtslui, werd er in de nieuwe wijken vooral voor hen gebouwd. De stad probeerde door de aanleg van brede, voorname grachten als de Oude Vest ook voornamere bebouwing te stimuleren, maar de eenvoudige en eenvormige kleine en middelgrote huizen beheersten het straatbeeld.Na voltooiing van de stadsuitbreidingen werd in 1667 opdracht verleend voor het vervaardigen een nieuwe grote kaart van Leiden. Op dat moment heeft de stad ca. 65.000 inwoners. In overeenstemming zowel met de nieuwe omvang als met de vermaardheid van Leiden, moest het een waardig stuk propaganda worden.De landmeter van Rijnland Jan Dou (1642-1690) heeft meer dan anderhalf jaar nodig voor de ontwerptekening klaar is. Voor het graveren en uitgeven wordt eerst de bekende Joan Blaeu gecontracteerd, maar door een grote brand die Blaeu"s drukkerij in vlammen doet opgaan, wordt bijna al het werk verricht door Christiaen van Hagen (ca. 1635-1688).Naar de grote plattegrond met stadsgezichten die uiteindelijk verschijnt in 1674, wordt in 1675 ook een kleinere wandkaart gemaakt (de zgn. 'Kleine Hagen').Literatuur: E. Pelinck, "De kaart van Hagen"' in Leids Jaarboekje (1954), pp. 113-127Prijs: € 21.500,- (incl. lijst).

        HISTORIA DE LA CONQVISTA DE LA CHINA POR EL TARTARO ESCRITA POR EL ILLUFTRIFFIMO

      Paris MDCLXX [1670], Antonio Bertier. Original old vellum,. red penned title on front cover & faintly on spine, 388p.,ca. 10 x 17.5 cm., very good, clean solid copy, Spanish text.. FIRST EDITION. AN EARLY BOOK ON CHINA & CONFUCIANISM 1670 Juan de Palafox Y Mendoca [1600-1659]. Per the Catholic Encyclopedia: Juan de Palafox Y Mendoca [1600-1659] ""...[was the Spanish]...Bishop of La Puebla de Los Angeles, b. at Fitero in Navarre, 24 June, 1600; d, at Osma in Spain, 1 October, 1659. He was a son of Jamie Palafox y Mendoza, Marquess of Ariza. After studying at the University of Salamanca, he was appointed to the Council of War and of the Indies at the Court of Madrid. In 1629 he renounced this dignity and was ordained priest. He accompanied Princess Mary as almoner to Germany and upon his return was consecrated Bishop of Puebla de Los Angeles, 27 December, 1839, and appointed "visitador general" of Mexico. He arrived there, June, 1640. He soon came in conflict with the Franciscans, Dominicans, and Augustinians, whose many exemptions and privileges he looked upon as encroachments on his episcopal jurisdiction. In may, 1642, he received secret advice from Madrid to take temporary charge of the Government, in place of the viceroy, Villena, who had been accused of financial mismanagement and secret sympathies with the Portuguese rebels in New Spain. At the same time he was appointed Archbishop of Mexico. From 10 June to 23 November, 1642, he was acting viceroy, but would not accept the dignity of archbishop. During his viceroyalty of five months, he corrected many financial abuses, framed new statutes for the University of Mexico, and to root out idolatry among the aborigines, destroyed many Aztec idols and other pagan antiquities collected by preceding viceroys. * In 1647 began his conflict with the Jesuits. The reason for the strife was the numerous exemptions and privileges which the Jesuit missionaries had enjoyed in Mexico since the beginning of the seventeenth century, and which, in the opinion of Palafox, undermined his episcopal authority. In a letter to Innocent X, dated 25 May, 1647, he denounced the use which the Jesuits were making of their privileges and asked the pope for redress. The pope answered with a brief, dated 18 May, 1648, in which he sustains the bishop in all disputed points of jurisdiction, but exhorts him to be more kind and lenient towards the Jesuits. A second letter to Pope Innocent X, dated 8 January, 1849, more acrimonious than the first, is often attributed to Palafox, but was probably forged by enemies of the Jesuits, as it is disavowed by Palafox in a defense of his actions which he addressed to Philip IV of Spain in 1652. In May, 1649, Palafox left for Spain. On 27 May, 1653, Innocent X issued a new brief, in which he confirmed his previous decision in favour of Palafox. The bishop was transferred to the Diocese of Osma in Spain in 24 November, 1852. He spent the remainder of his life labouring with his usual zeal for the spiritual welfare of his flock, which honoured and reverenced him as a saint. * The process of his canonization was introduced in 1726 under Benedict XIII, and was continued during the pontificates of Benedict XIV, Clement XIII, Clement XIV, and Pius VI. At the last session which was held on 28 February, 1777, twenty-six out of forty-one votes favoured his beatification, but Pius VI suspended the final decision. His literary products, consisting chiefly of ascetic, pastoral, and historical treatises in Spanish, were published in fifteen volumes (Madrid, 1762). "" End of citation from Catholic Encyclopedia. * CONTENTS: Per Lust, p.111, no. 449: "Account of the Manchu conquest, together with an analysis of the final Ming years, based on Montanus. P. worked from reports seont to him [Palafox] from the Philippines to Mexico. His manuscript was not available at the time when the English version was made, hence it was done from the French translation of Colle [Collet]." * EDITION: Based on the bibliographical citations and COPAC, we fail to find any edition in any language published prior to 1670, so for now we assume this to be the First Edition. Being Spanish, this work was written in his native language, * CONDITION: The book appears to be in its original vellum binding with the title written on the front cover in red from a later period. The binding is in excellent condition, clean, solid, with the typical yellow-tinge; two of the corners have a trifle bit of wear, the other two not; the edges are very solid with no wear at all; the spine and hinge are solid with a very tiny bit of rubbing, but we are overly critical & extremely meticulous.

      Amsterdam, Kristian von Hagen, 1670. - Außerordentlich seltene erste Ausgabe. "Zesen verbindet hier die biblische Josephslegende mit den Elementen des höfischen Staats- und Liebesromans Zesens Vorrede bietet wichtige Aussagen zur barocken Romantheorie" (Dünnhaupt). 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. Jahrhunderts" (Wolfskehl in Slg Manheimer). Sie stammen wohl von Kristian von Hagen, dem Kupferstecher, der hier zugleich als Verleger auftritt. – Anfangs etwas fleckig, teils wasserrandig.

[As written in Olde English, F = S ergo below spellings above taken exactly as on title page. Text also commonly has same spellings. . . * * * * * * . TRULY A GREAT EARLY WORK: . A truly great and possibly the first major monograph & book devoted strictly to Japan. The copper engraved plates to this large folio work represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century. With most astute observations from actual Japanese views graphically reproduced in the classic Western-European copper engraving style. *** FOLIO This work is the most grand and a Deluxe very early if not the first major English language resource on Japan. It predates most other English sources, being a remarkable FIRST work on Japan, hitherto an isolated and unknown country in the English, Western & European worlds. It brought much needed information about this long "closed country" [Sakoku] to those would be potential trading partners. The most coveted of the "big books" dedicated with a full sub-title page to Prince Charles II. L lavishly illustrated with many full, double-folding and four-page single large & folding plates. . Finely printed letterpress title page in black and red ink. *** The work is complete, the first part from pages 1-312; followed by "A SECOND AND LATER DISCOURSE CONCERNING THE EMPIRE OF JAPAN" from pages 313-488. **** RARE ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDITION of the major antiquarian book on Japan. This work covers the primary observations and writings of two Dutch missions to Nagasaki in 1649 and 1661. The pantheon of such superb and early primary resources are quite small. Due in fact because Japan had closed herself to the outside world, fearing that it too would be broken up into foreign-controlled pieces like China. Therefore Japan closed her doors to all Western visitors & commerce. The two brief exceptions were the Portuguese in 1549 who were allowed a small foothold on Hirado [Firado] Island in Southern Japan, and the Dutch who in 1604 were allowed to stay on a tiny island in Nagasaki harbor called Deshima. This island had a small causeway connecting it to the Nagasaki mainland, that was gated and controlled by the Shogun. * The Dutch were allowed a small amount of visiting commerce ships which traded under the Dutch East India Company auspices. The Dutch were allowed "special Japanese prostitutes" as companions, but were not allowed to come and go off Deshima Island at will, except for once a year, when the Captain was sent overland to Edo [old Tokyo] to have an audience with the Shogun. Englebert Kaempfer a Dutch doctor was one of those who went to see the Shogun and wrote a superb book published in 1727 on Japan and his life there. A second edition was published in 1728. The current work by Montanus precedes Kaempfer's historic work by some fifty-eight years. Please inquire with us if you are interested in the Kaempfer book. *** FIRST AND ONLY ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDITION: The First Edition of Montanus was in Dutch. The English edition is by far the most desirable, valuable and rare when compared to the other translations which were done in French & German later. Seldom found on the market in complete and very good condition. This has book has always been coveted by collectors over the past four centuries. . *** BINDING: The book has been rebound at an earlier time. The original dark brown leather covers has been preserved and has been rebound with light brown calf on all edges and spine. New black leather labels with gold stamped lettering, raised bands, new end papers, now a very solid firm copy with excellent strong hinges. The book is 28 x 43 cm. *** CONDITION: The book is complete with all plates and maps. Quite a good, solid copy, some plates and pages with minor mends using Washi archival paper. The usual mis-pagination [as issued], a complete copy with all text, folding map #1 in facsimile, with and all other original full-size folding and text plates. The pages are clean and bright for the most part an occasional but very minor faint damp stain at the upper right corner of a few pages, and the same at the lower gutter on some pages, else clean and solid. The edges are square and clean with the original pale red speckling as issued. . The binding has been restored, using full calf leather going around the edges and spine, preserving the old original front & rear covers. The spine as two black leather labels with gold stamped author's name and titles, and gold stamped lines. The front covers also have gold-stamped decorative lines. . By and large a very nice copy, we are always overly critical of any flaws in our books. By and large a very good, collectable copy.

He goes on to call it "...one of the most curious of the numerous works on travel in the Orient during the 17th century.

        Epicurus's morals, collected partly out of his own Greek text, in Diogenes Laertius, and partly out of the Rhapsodies of Marcus Antoninus, Plutarch, Cicero, & Seneca. And faithfully Englished.

      London: H. Herringman at the Blew Anchor... 8vo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). Frontis., [18] ff., 201, [1] p.. 1670 A beautiful example of => a somber binding by one of the Queens' Binders encases this third edition of => the first translation into English of Epicurus's Morals, first published in 1656. Probably the Queens' Binder B, arguably the best artisan of four Restoration binders employed by Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, fashioned this elegant blind-tooled black morocco binding, each board bearing the B binder's distinctive all-over design of "four-petalled conventional flower[s] springing from a pair of leaves" (Nixon, p. 100), framed by drawer handle motifs, acorns, grapes, and pointellé decoration. The spine is blind-tooled with raised bands and the title gilt on a red leather label; the endpapers are marbled and the edges black (faded). The text is printed in roman and italic, ruled in red throughout, with sidenotes inset within the red ruled border. An => engraved portrait of Epicurus faces the title-page. The translator, Walter Charleton (1620?-1707), was named physician-in-ordinary to Charles I shortly after graduating from Oxford, and published numerous books on natural philosophy as well as physiology and antiquity. To the various writings by the philosopher Epicurus (341?-270) included herein, Charleton added an Apology for Epicurus, building a Christian framework for the following chapters. Provenance: A later pencil inscription on the front free endpaper indicates this book may have once been in the library at => Dyrham Park, a 17th-century English mansion now overseen by the National Trust. Binding as above, with joints worn (especially at front joint's ends) and board corners scuffed, these gently refurbished; front hinge (inside) cracked but holding well; red leather spine label partially lost; frontispiece portrait excised and mounted on verso of front fly-leaf. A copy rather remarkably unspotted, with an inkstain in one outer margin and a brown chemical stain on another leaf, neither affecting text; while a shift in paper during printing resulted in => an instructive typographical anomaly, with the text being printed at an angle on the lower outer corner of one page. A good book, a good binding, and a good copy.

        The lives of Dr. John Donne, Sir Henry Wotton, Mr Richard Hooker, Mr George Herbert : To which are added some letters written by George Herbert . with others to his mother, the Lady Magdalen Herbert, written by John Donne

      London: Published by Tho. Newcomb for Richard Marriott, 1670 - 8vo., [12], 88, [2], 79, [2], 140, [2], 104 p. Elegant later full tan morocco by Tout, with raisedbands and decorative gilt. All edges gilt. Complete, with all title pages, 4 portraits, and all blanks. From the collection of the great Victorian bibliographer Harry Buxton Forman, with his bookplate and his pencil annotation dating the binding to 29 June 1889. Forman has penned the following note to the binder's blank: "There is one manuscript correction in this beautifully clean and perfect copy of the editio princeps of the Four Lives. It is at the end of Walton's Elegy on Donne, page 88. The printer had put for signature 'Iz: Wee:' Walton has corrected him by cancelling ee and substituting a. The blank leaves, sig A1 and A8, do not often occur. HBF." In addition to the correction Forman noted, there are several other holograph annotations, to p.27 of the Donne ("Rom 14. 22"), p.95 of the life of Hooker (a typo corrected to read "venerable"), and to pp. 66 and 67 of the Herbert (two lines underlined). These notes appear to be in a similar hand to the one Forman attributes to Walton, and his failure to remark upon them is curious. On the one hand, it is not unlikely that the corrections are indeed by the author. As John Butt notes in a 1930 article, "Walton formed a habit, pleasing to collectors, of leaving his mark upon those copies of the Lives which passed through his hands." Butt's informal census identified over 20 copies with holograph corrections, including one in the British Museum, and our inexpert comparison with samples of the author's handwriting support the possibility that these emendations are indeed genuine. On the other hand, Forman is perhaps best known today as Thomas James Wise's partner in unscrupulous enterprise. Caveat emptor! A superb copy with an interesting provenance.
