Titelblätter in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz, 2 doppelblattgroßen Kupferstichen, einer dblgr. Karte mit Panoramaansicht von Trier, 13 Textkupfern, davon 2 ganzseitig, 2 Textholzschnitten und 3 Druckermarken. Zeitgenössische blindgeprägte Schweinslederbände über Holzdeckeln mit jeweils 2 Metallschliessen. Gering gebräunt, kaum fleckig. Zwei Schliessen erneuert. De Backer/Sommervogel II, 221. NDB II, 639, Hellwig, Mittelrhein 48 (mit Abb. der Karte). Älteste und bis heute unübertroffene Gesamtdarstellung der Trierer Geschichte, begonnen von Trierer Jesuit Christoph Brouwer (1559-1617), fortgeführt von Jacob Masen (1606-81). Das Manuskript Brouwers war schon 1591 fertiggestellt, die Veröffentlichung scheiterte aber an Differenzen mit dem Erzbischof Johann von Schönenberg. Schließlich sollte das Buch 1626 in Köln erscheinen, aber auch diesmal war es ein Trierer Erzbischof, der das verhinderte. Christoph von Sötern lies wegen seines unseligen Streites mit der Abtei St. Maximin um deren Reichsunmittelbarkeit die bereits gedruckten Bögen beschlagnahmen, später wurden sie als Altpapier verkauft. Lange galt die Auflage als vernichtet, bis man aus geretteten Bögen, handschriftlich ergänzt, eine fast vollständige Ausgabe rekonstruieren konnte. Jakob Masen erweiterte das Werk dann um den Zeitraum 1600-1652. "Eine annalistisch-chronologische, heute noch wertvolle Darstellung der Geschich … [Click Below for Full Description]

[SPLENDID CEREMONIES].
Original ink and ink-wash drawings of 5 triumphal arches and 3 catafalques (elaborate funeral biers), plus an additional line drawing of a 4th catafalque on the back of one leaf, all erected at various locations in the city of Siena in Tuscany: in the cathedral, in the piazza before the cathedral, in Palazzo Piccolomini and at the Porta Santuccio. The drawings are richly decorated with sculptures, bas-reliefs, columns, cartouches, vases, candelabras and decorations, including Christian and classical figures and putti. The five triumphal arches were all erected for the occasion of the entry of Alessandro Zondadari (1670-1745), the new archbishop of Sienna on 11 August 1715. He was the fourth and last son of Ansano Zondadari and Agnese di Mario Chigi. She was a niece of Pope Alexander VII and heir of her brother Cardinal Flavio Chigi, one of the most influential and powerful men in Siena. One catafalque was erected for the funeral of Alessandro Zondadari's older brother Marc' Antonio Zondadari (1658-1722), Grand Master of the Sovereign Military and Hospitaller Order of Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and Malta. Flavio Chigi went to great lengths to advance the prestige and power of his Zondadari relatives, paying many thousands of scudi to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo III de' Medici (1642-1723) for hereditary titles he could pass on. It is therefore no surprise that the Zondadari arches and catafalques are accompanied by catafalques for the Grand Duke himself and his wife Margarita Luisa d'Orléans (1645-1721), daughter of Gaston, Duke of Orléans and brother of King Loui … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOOKE, Robert.
1670; 1666], [London. A very rare document related to the Great Fire of London written and signed by the great polymath Robert Hooke (1635-1703), with an equally rare separately-issued map showing the destruction caused by the fire. Starting at a bakery on Pudding Lane sometime after midnight on September 2, 1666, The Great Fire of London consumed over 13,000 houses, as well as numerous churches (including St. Paul?s cathedral) and other buildings. Charles II sought to rebuild as soon as possible to limit unrest and possible rebellion and called for plans from Robert Hooke, John Evelyn, Christopher Wren, and others. Hooke was appointed Surveyor of the City of London and, with Wren, was the chief architect for its rebuilding. As Surveyor Hooke was the arbiter of disputes erupting out of the staking-out process whereby party walls had been altered or streets widened. The present document is a report on such a dispute, between William Sanders (or Saunders) Draper and John Rowly Skinner over the rebuilding of their shop and residence on Ludgate Hill within the burnt district. Autograph documents by Hooke are extremely rare, with only two examples on the market in the last quarter century: Hooke?s manuscript notebook recording proceedings of the Royal Society (sold by private treaty to the Royal Society by Bonham's in 2006 for a reported £1,000,000) and a signed document being a King's Warrant for a patent for Hooke's watches with springs (sold by Bloomsbury Auctions for £23,100 in 1991).

Cellarius demonstrates the Ptolemaic theory of epicycles. The epicycles theory addressed a problem that arose from the assumption that if the Earth was the center of the universe, then the circuit of the planets should be of a steady one-directional, circular progress. Observation showed, however, that the orbital progress of the planets was in fact irregular, and from these observations arose the ancient theory of epicycles illustrated here. - vita of the artist: "Andreas Cellarius (c. 1596 ? 1665) was a Dutch-German cartographer, best known for his Harmonia Macrocosmica of 1660, a major star atlas, published by Johannes Janssonius in Amsterdam.Andreas Cellarius, illustration of the Copernican system, from the Harmonia Macrocosmica 1660.He was born in Neuhausen, now a part of Worms, and was educated in Heidelberg. The Protestant Cellarius may have left Heidelberg at the onset of the Thirty years war in 1618 or in 1622 when the city came in Catholic hands. His activities are unclear at this time but based on his later works it is conjectured he spent time in Poland and may have even worked as a military engineer there. In 1625 he married Catharina Elt(e)mans in Amsterdam, where he worked as school master of a Latin School. After a brief stay in The Hague, the family mov … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lisbon: perfect for collectors (first 3 pages are copies) "Os Lusiadas / do grande Luis de Camoens, princepe dos poetas de Hespanha ; com os argumentos do Licenciado Ioaõ Franco Barretto, & index de todos os Nomes proprios ; offerecidas ao Illustrissimo Senhor Andre Furtado de Mendoça, por Antonio Craesbeeck de Mello, impressor da Caza Real. - Lisboa : por Antonio Craesbeeck de Mello, 1670" Os Lusíadas, usually translated as The Lusiads, is a Portuguese epic poem written by Luís Vaz de Camões (c. 1524/5 - 1580) and first published in 1572. It is widely regarded as the most important work of Portuguese literature and is frequently compared to Virgil's Aeneid (1st c. BC). The work celebrates the discovery of a sea route to India by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama (1469-1524). The ten cantos of the poem are in ottava rima and total 1,102 stanzas. Written in Homeric fashion, the poem focuses mainly on a fantastical interpretation of the Portuguese voyages of discovery during the 15th and 16th centuries. Os Lusíadas is often regarded as Portugal's national epic, much as Virgil's Aeneid was for the Ancient Romans, or Homer's Iliad and Odyssey for the Ancient Greeks. It was written when Camões was an exile in Macau and was first printed in 1572, three years after the author returned from the Indies.

Quattordici delle tavole sono tratte dal De humani corporis fabrica del Vesalio e le altre dalle Tabulae anatomicae VI, pure del Vesalio.

ont> E Okes for William Whitwood : London, 1670 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of this scarce tract on Ralph Wallis, a nonconformist pamphleteer known as 'the Cobler of Gloucester'. This tract appeared following the death of Wallis and focuses on Wallis' ideas and his pamphleteering. Wallis' biographer states to this work that 'His complexion was of a sunburnt gipsy colour, and his skin was rough and tawny, like singed bacon; his hair was brown and bristly upon his head, but his locks were weather-turned, like a barber's show periwig'. Despite his Nonconformist views, Wallis was raised by Roman Catholic parents. His parents were 'church papists' meaning they conformed to the demands of the Church of England enough to escape persecution. It is believed that Wallis began writing his pamphlets against the government in the 1650's but these early works have not survived. Wallis was apprehended by the government following his dispersion of pamphlets and he was held in custody. He admitted authorship of the works but declared to be in religion 'a Christian' and so was released. His pamphlets were frequently of a scatological tone and featured entertaining anecdotes regarding clergymen whose names and addresses he knew. (DNB) This work is the ESTC no. R20134. Collated, complete. Rebound in full cloth. This biography provides further insight into the political and religious turbulence of the seventeenth century. Condition: Rebound, in a full cloth binding.

Apparently trimmed during re-binding, but no loss of text. Pages are browned but are in excellent condition! Clean tight binding, very light scuffing to boards, First edition in French of the foundation work on the De Soto Expedition. One of the basic works on the De Soto Expedition, written by the half Spanish-half Peruvian historian of the New World Garcilaso de la Vega ("El Inca"), the first distinguished man of letters to be born there. De Soto, one of the most famous of the conquistadors, landed in Florida, near Tampa Bay, in the spring of 1539. He explored northward, attacking and enslaving local Indians until retaliatory strikes made his progress a running battle. In 1540 the expedition moved north and then west, crossing present-day Georgia, through central South Carolina and into western North Carolina. From here he crossed northern Alabama and Mississippi, where several major Indian attacks deprived the expedition of much of its equipment. In the spring of 1541 he crossed the Mississippi, and spent all of that year in present-day Arkansas. De Soto died the following year and was buried in the Mississippi to conceal his loss from the Indians; the survivors of the expedition rafted down the river and managed to sail small boats to Mexico. The De Soto expedition is thus the first major European exploration o … [Click Below for Full Description]

There are some marginal notes in a fine hand as in pictures. Books are described to the best of my ability - I am not a professional book dealer. I do not look at every page of every book - Please ask questions - I am happy to send more photos and to answer emails. Thank you 4/18.

Apparently trimmed during re-binding, but no loss of text. Pages are browned but are in excellent condition! Clean tight binding, very light scuffing to boards, First edition in French of the foundation work on the De Soto Expedition. One of the basic works on the De Soto Expedition, written by the half Spanish-half Peruvian historian of the New World Garcilaso de la Vega ("El Inca"), the first distinguished man of letters to be born there. De Soto, one of the most famous of the conquistadors, landed in Florida, near Tampa Bay, in the spring of 1539. He explored northward, attacking and enslaving local Indians until retaliatory strikes made his progress a running battle. In 1540 the expedition moved north and then west, crossing present-day Georgia, through central South Carolina and into western North Carolina. From here he crossed northern Alabama and Mississippi, where several major Indian attacks deprived the expedition of much of its equipment. In the spring of 1541 he crossed the Mississippi, and spent all of that year in present-day Arkansas. De Soto died the following year and was buried in the Mississippi to conceal his loss from the Indians; the survivors of the expedition rafted down the river and managed to sail small boats to Mexico. The De Soto expedition is thus the first major European exploration o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spinoza, Baruch
Hamburg: Henricum Kunraht, 1670. First Edition. Very Good. First issue, with the fictitious printer's name spelled "Kunraht" and 104 misnumbered "304." Quarto (200 x 155 mm) with Roman, Hebrew, and Italic types. Final blank removed, else complete with all the typographical errors listed in the errata uncorrected. Modern rebinding with medieval antiphonal on vellum and modern endpapers. Title dust-soiled and repaired at gutter; minor staining to quire G. An exceptionally rare early philosophical text. Spinoza's most important philosophical work, bridging political theory and Biblical history. Besides his contributions to Descartes' Principia, it was the only one of his texts to be printed in his lifetime. "Spinoza's reputation as a political thinker is eclipsed by his reputation as a rationalist metaphysician. Nevertheless, Spinoza was a penetrating political theorist whose writing have enduring significance...his account of civil organization, grounded in psychological realism, stands as an important contribution to the development of constitutionalism and the rule of law" (Stanford). In the present work, Spinoza combines "Cartesian rationalism and the Hebraic tradition in which he grew up, [and it] is a solitary but crystal clear exposition of the theory of natural right. He defends with eloquence the liberty of thought and speech in speculative matters, and the Tractatus contains the first clear statement of the independence of each other of philosophy and religion" (PMM). A critical piece in the history of political ethics. PMM 153. Very Good.

WIT, FREDERICK DE (1630-1706)
FRAAIE ANTIEKE KAART VAN PORTUGAL "Novissima Regnorum Portugalliae et Algabriae". Kopergravure met privilege uitgegeven te Amsterdam doo Frederick de Wit in 1670. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en fraai met goud gehoogd. Afm. 58,8 x 49,3 cm. De Wit signeerde de kaart in de plaat (linksboven): "Ex Officina Frederici de Wit". De kaart toont een veelheid aan details: vestingwerken, wegen, kerken, abdijen en honderden kleine dorpen. Het geheel is versierd met twee fraaie cartouches, elk op klassieke wijze weergegeven met putti en wapenschilden van onder andere Portugal en Algarve. De vroegste contacten dateren waarschijnlijk uit 1147, toen Vlaamse en Friese kruisvaarders de Portugese koning te hulp schoten om Lissabon op de moslims te veroveren. Als beloning ontvingen de Lage Landen belangrijke handelsvoordelen van de Portugese koning. Handel zou ook in de daaropvolgende eeuwen de basis vormen voor de bloeiende relaties tussen Nederlanders en Portugezen. De Opstand wijzigde de betrekkingen tussen beide landen echter ingrijpend. Aanvankelijk onderhielden Nederland en Portugal goede relaties. Lissabon stuurde in 1576 een speciale vertegenwoordiger naar de Staten-Generaal om de onderlinge vrijhandelszone in een verdrag vast te leggen. Toen Spanje echter Portugal in 1580 bezette, ging het mis. Nederlandse schepen mochten niet langer in Portugese havens aanleggen en hadden daardoor geen toegang meer tot de specerijenmarkten van Lissabon en andere steden. Nederland zag zich daardoor gedwongen zelf naar Indi? te gaan. Dat leidde tot een forse koloniale expansie van de Nederlandse Rep … [Click Below for Full Description]

NDB II, 639, Hellwig, Mittelrhein 48 (mit Abb. der Karte). Älteste und bis heute unübertroffene Gesamtdarstellung der Trierer Geschichte, begonnen von Trierer Jesuit Christoph Brouwer (1559-1617), fortgeführt von Jacob Masen (1606-81). Das Manuskript Brouwers war schon 1591 fertiggestellt, die Veröffentlichung scheiterte aber an Differenzen mit dem Erzbischof Johann von Schönenberg. Schließlich sollte das Buch 1626 in Köln erscheinen, aber auch diesmal war es ein Trierer Erzbischof, der das verhinderte. Christoph von Sötern lies wegen seines unseligen Streites mit der Abtei St. Maximin um deren Reichsunmittelbarkeit die bereits gedruckten Bögen beschlagnahmen, später wurden sie als Altpapier verkauft. Lange galt die Auflage als vernichtet, bis man aus geretteten Bögen, handschriftlich ergänzt, eine fast vollständige Ausgabe rekonstruieren konnte.
