        Histoire de la dernière révolution des états du grand Mogol, dédiée au roi

      1670 - deux volumes in-12, (8)-268 + A Paris, chez Claude Barbin, 1670, in-12, deux volumes in-12, (8)-268 + 294-(1) pp, une carte dépliante, veau marbré de l'époque, dos cinq nerfs et fleuronné. Emboîtage rouge moderne, Rare édition originale de cette relation donnée par François Bernier (1620-1688), philosophe et médecin, disciple de Pierre Gassendi, qui séjourna 10 ans en Inde, de 1659 à 1669. Médecin d'un haut fonctionnaire, il fut un témoin privilégié de la vie politique, religieuse et sociale à la cour moghole. Cet esprit curieux, d'extraction modeste, explora le pays de Delhi jusqu'au Cachemire. Il fit publier, un an après son retour en France, cette histoire qui sera éditée ultérieurement sous le titre : Voyages, contenant la description des états du Grand-Mogol. Le premier tome raconte la guerre civile des années 1655-1860. Le second tome de la présente édition porte en titre: Evenemens particuliers, ou ce qui s'est passé de plus considérable après la guerre de cinq ans. Il comporte, à partir de la page 191, une longue lettre à Colbert sur la circulation des richesses dans le sous-continent indien. Coiffes arasées, charnières fendillées, coins émoussés. Quelques auréoles marginales claires, une galerie de vers en pied des feuillets du premier volume, sans atteinte au texte. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Geometrischer Abriß desß Sachsenwalds, sambt deßen angräntzenden Örttern .

      v. Stern'sche Druckerei (?), Lüneburg: 1670 - Kupferstichkarte, Christoph Metzger fec., Lüneburg: v. Stern'sche Druckerei (?) 1670, 68 x 48 cm. (Mit Spuren alter Faltung, Bug unterlegt, einige helle alte Tintenflecke, minimal gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten). Abzug auf stärkerem Papier. Einblattdruck, sehr selten. * Die Karte wurde "in der Statt Lüneburg verfertiget und unterschrieben" (möglicherweise in der v.Stern'schen Druckerei hergestellt); sie zeigt das Gebiet des Sachsenwaldes (östlich von Hamburg) bis Wohltorff, Kropellhagen, Dassendorf, Brunstorf, Schwartzenbeck, Havekorst, Möhsen, Lasseburg und Kuddewörde. Die Karte entstand als Beweismittel in einem Rechtsstreit zwischen den Reichsstädten Hamburg und Lübeck einerseits und dem Herzogtum Lauenburg andererseits über den Grenzverlauf im Sachsenwald. Die eigentliche Landkarte nimmt etwa die untere Blatthälfte ein, während im oberen Teil - ebenfalls in Kupfer gestochen - ausführliche Erläuterungen und Zeugenberichte den Prozeß betreffend enthalten sind. Die Karte wurde von den Landmessern Christian Schildknecht (Ingenieur in Güstrow) und Dionys Bredekow (Ingenieur in Stade) gezeichnet und von Christoph Metzger in Lüneburg gestochen (und am Unterrand signiert). Bereits 1549 hatten die Hansestädte vor dem Reichskammergericht zu Speyer Klage eingereicht. Nach langwierigem, mehr als m100 Jahre (!) dauerndem Prozeß erging schließlich 1663 das Urteil, welches erst 1670 verkündet wurde. Die den Prozeßakten beiliegende größere Manuskriptkarte hatte letztlich Anerkennung als Beweismittel gefunden und führte zum Erfolg; die 1670 angefertigte Kupferstich-Version diente der Öffentlichkeit als Nachweis der nunmehr korrekten Grenzziehung (vgl. Geerz S. 62f., auch Anm. 25+26). Die Autoren der Karte haben folgendermaßen signiert: Text oben links, 7. und 8. Zeile: ". den 25. 9bris (= Novembris) a(nno) 1664 von Christian Schildknecht, Ingenieur zu Güstrow, und Dionys Bredekaw, Ingenieur zu Stade, in der Statt Lüneburg verfertiget und unterschrieben." Der Stecher signierte unten Mitte: "Christoff Metzger fecit." (Mit Spuren alter Faltung, Bug unterlegt, einige helle alte Tintenflecke, minimal gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten). Abzug auf stärkerem Papier. Einblattdruck, sehr selten. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Doctor, T'Amsterdam, voor Marcus Doornick, Boeck-verkooper op de Vygen-dam/ in 't Comptoir Inct-vat. 1670, Met Privilegie voor 15 jaren. 4to Brown leather, slightly damaged at corners and spines. Very rare first edition. A little known work of an equally little known author, this Dutch herbarium is truly a rare book. Its second edition (1682) is held in seven American libraries, but this first edition (1670) is available in only two places, one of them being the Becker Library. The text and illustrations of the Kruydt-boeck follow the style of the sixteenth century herbals, such as those by Mattioli, Rösslin, and Fuchs. Two columns of text on a page with interspersed woodcuts describe and represent the plants. Even the type-face looks archaic! It is Gothic type, which recalls the somewhat rigid lines of the medieval manuscript tradition. The delicate copper plate illustration on the title page pictures the herbalist (right, sitting) and his assistants. Note the fine detail in the open herbal in the right bottom corner. (Washington University, Becker Library).

        Munster avanti l'assedio (=Ansicht von Münster vor der Belagerung; und:) Munster assediato adi 20 di Agosto 1659 Aggiustato . (=Ansicht mit der Belagerung; 2 Darstellungen übereinander auf einem Blatt).

      Wien 1670 - Kupferstich (von 2 Platten, zusammengefügt), Wien 1670, 67 x 30 cm. (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).

        "Natuerlycke astrology; dat is De verthooninge, van de aert, natuer, ende kracht der planeten, aspecten met haer werckinge in 's menschen lichaem. Leeuwarden, Gysbert Sybes, 1659. ".

      "Full vellum, browned. 8°, pag.: [20] 220. With two folding tables, a woodcut on the title page and numerous woodcut text illustations. Endpapers worn and waterstained throughout, small wormhole in lower margin, not affecting the text. Extremely rare edition of this curious and interesting tract on astrology by the Frisian surveyor Theodorus Hoen (?-1670), first printed in 1650, also by Gijsbert Sybes in Leeuwarden. The book is divided in two parts, each with 10 chapters. The first part gives a general survey of astrology, the second part is devoted to the prediction of the weather and natural phenomena like earthquakes, thunder and lightning etc. Especially in the first part Hoen displays his astro-medical ideas, as to his opinion astrology was of great importance for medical treatments. The appendix contains many geometrical and mathematical questions. Little is known about Hoen's biography. From 1632 until his death in 1670 he lived in St. Annaparochie, working as surveyor and mapmaker. Probably he combined his daily, more down-to-earth work with popular astrological predictions and calculations for almanacs. In his Billandts Almanach for the year 1653 he clearly acknowledged the distinction between his two occupations: astronomy and astrology; the first being based on decent geometry and arithmetics, the latter - no less fundamental - focusing on the relation between earth, nature and humanity with the signs of the zodiac and the stars. From 1649 up to 1670 Hoen calculated almanacs, for which he was paid by the provincial authorities. They also rewarded Hoen with the sum of 30 guilders for the present astrological manual, which he had kindly dedicated to the statesmen of Frisia. A-P 8.B0105.".

        Gran Cairo.

      Bologna, Longhi, 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 citta 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).

        Grammatica linguae Turcicae,

      Oxford: Henry Hall, printer to the University, and sold by Edward Millington,, 1670. in quinque partes distributa. Quarto (182 × 147 mm). Recent tan sheep to style, raised bands to spine forming compartments, titles to second gilt, double-rules to sides in blind, edges speckled blue. Printer's device to the title page, 2 figurative initials, floral head- and tailpieces. Occasional contemporary marginalia and underlining in black ink, later (c. 19th?) annotations in pencil, ownership inscription to verso of title repeated undated on f. 2A4, Greek inscription to head of title-page translating to a paraphrase of Socrates: "The life of the uneducated is not worth living". Title page and last two leaves browned and somewhat soiled, the former additionally with old repair to fore edge, faint chipping to corners towards first and last few leaves, light browning throughout, a few small worm-tracks, one from f. O1 onwards lengthening from O4 to Q2, ink-splash to p. 13, spill-burn to f. C4, faint damp-staining from 2A to 2A3. A good copy. First and only edition of the first Turkish grammar printed in England, one of 300 copies printed, well-held institutionally but complete copies scarce in commerce; this copy inscribed on the verso of the first blank,"the late Sir Wm. Jones' copy", with the ownership inscription of "William Simpson […] June 15th 1835, Ironmonger, Bedford" to the verso of the title page in a distinct hand. The library of Sir William Jones, the colonial administrator and leading English orientalist of the 18th century, was sold at auction in Pall Mall across two days in May 1831; the sale catalogue makes no mention of the present title though it could well have been offered as part of a larger lot from a collection unsurprisingly rich in Turcica. Seaman (1606/07-1680) graduated MA from Balliol College in 1626 before travelling to Constantinople in the service of English ambassador, Sir Peter Wyche. He returned sometime before 1631 to resume his position as rector at Upton Scudamore, the rural Wiltshire parish of his birth. His first publication in the field of Turkish studies was an English translation of Sadettin Hoca's Tac üt-tevarih ('The crown of histories'), printed in 1652 as The Reign of Sultan Orchan, Second King of the Turks. As one of the very few Englishmen to know Turkish, he was later commissioned by Robert Boyle to translate the New Testament into Turkish as part of the burgeoning project to evangelise the Levant. Published in 1666, Armenian Turkish-speaker Shahin Kandy suggested that Seaman's Turkish was so artificial as to be incomprehensible, though Boyle was sufficiently unperturbed to fund the production of the present title by subscribing to purchase £20 worth of copies: a considerable sum (ODNB). Seaman's effort was not the first Turkish grammar to be printed in Europe, a distinction which belongs to Hieronymus Megiser's 1612 Institutionum linguae turcicae, though it was unusual in employing Arabic types, the first such work printed in Oxford, an astronomical compendium incorporating Ulugh Beg's star tables, having appeared in 1648, and a few minor adaptations were required for Turkish characters. Madan notes two issues of this title, not distinguished in the ESTC. This copy is Madan 2863*, with a five-line Latin note on p. 183 stating that Seaman's grammar and his translation of the New Testament can each be purchased from either Millington or the author; the Blackmer copy was Madan 2863, in which this note is omitted.

      London: Printed by Joesph Moxon, 1670. Second edition, corrected and enlarged, [8], 242, [8], 40pp., additional engraved title in Latin with allegorical border, laid-down with two closed tears to fore-edge, title lightly stained with a couple of marginal chips, some general age-toning, engravings and woodcuts in the text including one full page, orig. calf, rebacked, joints rubbed, head of spine chipped. Joseph Moxon (1627?-1691) established himself as a printer and globe and instrument maker in London. After visiting Amsterdam to study printing, Moxon brought back W. J. Blaeu's handbook of globes, then just published, and translated it into English as "A tutor to astronomy and geography" in 1659. The work was superseded when Moxon published a totally new handbook in 1659, "A tutor to astronomie and geographie". This work was specially designed for an English market rather than Dutch, and became Moxon's most popular work relating to globes. This second edition is corrected and greatly enlarged. A variant second edition which is not listed in Wing, it varies from Wing M3023 in having a separate pagination for the 40-page "Antiquity, Progress, and Augmentation of Astronomie."; ESTC finds 3 copies located at Cambridge, Wellcome and Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

        Tractatus theologico-politicus

      Hamburg: Henricus Künraht,, 1670. Quarto (199 x 154 mm). Contemporary vellum over pasteboard, yapp edges, blue page edges, rebacked and relined, ties lacking. Housed in a black cloth flat back box. Roman, italic and Hebrew type. Woodcut printer's device on title. Contemporary note at one corner of title, underlining and scoring to K2. Worming to fore edge of rear cover, light soiling to title and upper corners of B1-3, marginal waterstains, without the final blank, a very good, well-margined copy. First edition of Spinoza's great treatise on political theology, a 'crystal-clear exposition of the theory of natural right' (PMM). Spinoza's principal work, and the only work published in his lifetime, it blends the traditions of his Hebraic background with Cartesian rationalism. His ethical views are extended into the realm of politics, and contain the first clear statement of the mutual independence of philosophy and religion. 'Man is moved to the knowledge and love of God; the love of God involves the love of our fellow men. Man, in order to obtain security, surrenders part of his right of independent action to the State. But the State exists to give liberty, not to enslave; justice, wisdom and toleration are essential to the sovereign power' (PMM). Four editions were published with the 1670 date and Kunraht imprint when, in fact, the second appeared in 1672, and the third and fourth posthumously in 1677. This copy is of the true first edition, with page 104 misnumbered 304.

        NOMO-LEXIKON, A Law Dictionary Interpreting Such Difficult and Obscure

      1670. First Edition of Blount's Dictionary Blount, Thomas [1618-1679]. NOMO LEXIKON: A Law-Dictionary. Interpreting Such Difficult and Obscure Words and Terms, as are Found Either in Our Common or Statute, Ancient or Modern, Laws. With References to the Several Statutes, Records, Registers, Law-Books, Charters, Ancient Deeds, and Manuscripts, Wherein the Words are Used: And Etymologies, Where They Properly Occur. London: Printed by Tho. Newcomb for John Martin and Henry Herringman, 1670. [286] pp. Text printed in parallel columns within black-ruled borders. Folio (11-1/4" x 7"). Contemporary calf, speckled blind frames to boards, raised bands and later lettering piece to spine, gilt tooling to board edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, minor scuffing and staining to boards, front joint starting near head, a few cracks to text block, one between front endleaf and title page. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places. Early owner signature to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Blount was a member of the Inner Temple. Prohibited to practice at the Bar because he was a Catholic, but blessed with a large private income, Blount turned to legal scholarship, historical studies and lexicography. Blount aimed to correct the defects he found in Cowell's Interpreter (1607) and Rastell's Termes de la Ley (1523). In his preface, he observed that Cowell "is sometimes too prolix in the derivation of a Word, setting down several Authors Opinions, without categorically determining which is the true"; Rastell "wrote so long hence, that his very Language and manner of expression was almost antiquated." He hoped that by correcting these flaws he would create a dictionary useful to everyone in the profession from "the Coif to the puny-Clerk." The Nomo-Lexikon is clearer and more detailed than its predecessors. It is also the first English-language dictionary with entries that include word etymologies and citations. An immediate success that quickly supplanted its predecessors, it was reissued in larger and revised editions throughout the eighteenth century.

      Paris Antoine Bertier 1670 - Palafox was a high-ranking Spanish cleric, whose responsibilities, while serving in Mexico, involved the collection of reports on China forwarded to him via Macao and Manila. He apparently took this material back to Spain with him in 1649, when he was appointed bishop of Ossa and used it to compile this book on the Tartar conquest of China. 'His purpose in writing was avowedly "to take some measure of the present state of China under its new masters" and to point up a moral lesson to the princes of Europe about what happens to a state when internal decay and division are permitted to go unchecked . . . . The failure of the Ming dynasty he attributes unreservedly to its contempt for and neglect of the military' (Lach & Van Kley I pp. 356–7). Bertier also issued an edition in the original Spanish in the same year. (Löwendahl 148). Cordier BS 627; Lust 447; Morrison II, p. 190 A very good copy bound in contemporary calf, corners repaired, neatly rebacked, preserving portions of original spine. First edition in French.

Charles planned to make the town the fortress/gatekeeper to the Mediterranean, the role Gibraltar later took on, but the British were driven from Tangier in 1684. The map was engraved by Francis Lamb for Blome's 'Geographical Description of the Four Parts of the World', the second folio world atlas published in England, first y issued in 1669. Along the top of the map is a line of 36 armorials, testament to Blome's skill at raising money by subscription. Among the names are James Compton, 3rd Earl of Northampton and Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, and Elias Ashmole, whose bequest of books and manuscripts formed the basis of the Ashmolean Museum.

        [Passion of Christ Series]

      [Amsterdam]: C. de Jonghe [nd. but ca. 1640s - 1670].. Thirteen (of fourteen) loose copper plate engravings (4 1/8 x 3 5/8"; 118 x 80 cm or slightly larger). Condition details below. A suite of the later impressions of this sequence of copperplate engravings by Jan Harmansz Muller, based on Lucas Van Leyden's original series published in 1521. Such series of engraved or woodcut cards were quite popular during the late and post- Medieval eras, and the Passion of Christ, rendered in a form closely approximating the fourteen Stations of the Cross in the Catholic Church, was a common subject. Muller's work so closely mimics Leyden's that the original date '1521' and the large monogram 'L' remain in each of the engravings. The origin of this suite is indicated by the presence in the lower portion of the first engraving (only), of Muller's name along with C. de Jonghe's imprint. Clement de Jonghe (fl. 1634/5 - 77) was a successful Amsterdam print seller, publisher and dealer, best remembered for his having salvaged the original plates of Rembrandt's etchings, from which he produced restrike editions. Jan Muller (1571-1628) was a gifted engraver who apprenticed under master printer Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617). His own work was not limited to skillful reinterpretations of the work of his predecessors, but his attraction to the work of Leyden extended as well to a version of Leyden's engraved portrait of Emperor Maximilian I (after the woodcut by Durer). Of course, impressions of this series were published during his lifetime, and the later editions such as this, with de Jonghe's imprint, evidence the further utilization of the plates. This set lacks the final plate, the 14th in the series, which depicts the Resurrection. The first plate, which depicts the Last Supper and bears the imprint, exhibits a 4mm tear in the top edge, and two small smudges, along with a small early ink annotation on the verso. The 2nd plate bears an old colored pencil name on the verso and has a narrow discoloration in the left margin which penetrates only slightly into the plate area. The 7th and 9th plates exhibit significant old tidemarks on the versos, with the 7th mirroring the discoloration on the recto. All exhibit a small patch of thinning at the top edge on the verso from having been mounted at some point. Otherwise, the remaining plates are in very good condition.

        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.. 71pp. plus errata. 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. BRONNER & FRASER, PENN BIBLIOGRAPHY 11. SMITH, FRIENDS' BOOKS II:286. WING P1392.
