      1671. Blount, Thomas; London, 1671.. Blount, Thomas; London, 1671. With the Addition of "Above One-Hundred" Words by Thomas Blount [Rastell, John (d.1536)]. Rastell, William (1508?-1565). [Blount, Thomas (1618-1679), Editor]. Les Termes de la Ley, Or, Certain Difficult and Obscure Words and Terms of the Common Laws and Statutes of this Realm Now in Use Expounded and Explained.

Recent period-style quarter morocco over marbled boards, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to boards and extremities, crack in text block between front free endpaper and following leaf. Moderate toning to text, headlines of some leaves affected by trimming, a few minor tears and chips to fore-edges with no loss to text, early owner signatures and annotations to endleaves, early owner initials and small later owner stamp to head of title page. $500. * Later edition. With additions by the notable legal lexicographer Thomas Blount, author of the Nomo-Lexikon (1670). English and Law French in parallel columns. First published in 1527 by John Rastell, this was both the first English dictionary and first English law dictionary. It was originally written in Law French with the Latin title Expositiones Terminorum Legum Anglorumae. Later editions were produced by his son, William, who is believed to be the editor or translator. (Some sources claim, erroneously, that William is the author.) Quite popular with students and lawyers due to its clarity and concision, it went through at least twenty-five editions by 1721. A final reissue appeared in 1819. As Marvin observes, it is a useful dictionary because it "reflects the common law at the close of the year-book period with much fidelity.": Legal Bibliography 599.

        Memoires pour servir l'histoire naturelle des animaux

      Paris: S. Mabre-Cramoisy for Imprimerie Royale, 1671. Perrault, Claude (1613-88). Mémoires pour servir ŕ l'histoire naturelle des animaux. [Bound with:] Picard, Jean-Félix (1620-82). Mesure de la terre. [12], 91, [1]; [2], 30, [2]pp. Frontispiece and 14 plates by Sébastien LeClerc (Mémoires); 5 plates (Mesure). [With:] Perrault. Suite des mémoires pour servir ŕ l'histoire des animaux. [4], 93-205, [3]pp. 15 engraved plates by LeClerc. Together 3 works in 2 vols., double folio. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1671-76. 561 x 403 mm. Mottled calf ca. 1676, rebacked, arms of Louis XIV in gilt on front and back covers, light wear, edge of Vol. II back cover a little bumped. A few leaves creased, light marginal dampstains on 2 or 3 plates, but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate; bookplate of Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow. First Editions. Perrault was the leader of a team of comparative anatomists that included Guichard Joseph Duverney, Jean Pecquet, Moyse Charas and Philippe de la Hire; they were often called the "Parisians" in contemporary literature because of their membership in the Académie Royale des Sciences. Their investigations began with a thresher shark and lion from the royal menagerie and went on to encompass forty-nine vertebrate species. "Although some of the discoveries on which the Parisians most prided themselves-including the nictitating membrane that Perrault first observed in a cassowary, the external lobation of the kidneys in the bear, and the castoreal glands of the beaver-had been observed earlier, no such detailed and exact descriptions and illustrations had been published before" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). In the spirit of rationalism, Perrault and his team investigated and debunked many popular myths attached to certain species, such as the legend that salamanders live in fire or that chameleons subsist on air. They also recorded their methods of work along with their results, providing the only contemporary disclosure of how such anatomical research was conducted in the seventeenth century. The Mémoires were originally issued in two parts in 1671 and 1676, as in our copy; they were later reissued in 1676 (with slight changes) as one volume with a new title-leaf. The two volumes of the Mémoires contain descriptions of twenty-nine species, including the lion, the chameleon, the shark, the lynx, the porcupine, the eagle, the cormorant and the ostrich. Our copy was bound for presentation by Louis XIV, patron of the Académie des Sciences; a significant portion of the edition was bound this way. Vol. I of our copy also includes the first edition of Jean-Félix Picard's Mesure de la terre (1671), which contains the first reasonably accurate calculation of the size of the Earth. Picard based his calculation on his measurements of a degree of latitude along the Paris meridian. Using sophisticated instruments, Picard obtained a value for the Earth's polar radius of 6328.9 kilometers, only 0.44% below the correct value of 6357 km.; his results were thirty to forty times more precise than any that had been obtained previously. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 84. Norman 1687 (Perrault).

        The Amorous Prince, or The Curious Husband A Comedy

      London: J. M. for Thomas Dring, 1671. First edition. Modern full panelled calf binding with raised bands and a red morocco spine label. Quarto collates complete: [iv], 82, [2]. First two leaves and last leaf with paper repairs. Early ownership signature of a woman reader, Mary Howard, on the title page along with her note "first edition." Occasional light foxing; marginal annotation on final leaf. Else a very nice, clean copy of this scarce text that has come only three times to auction, with its last appearance over 30 years ago. Separated from her husband and in need of a means to support herself, Aphra Behn made literary history by becoming the first professional female playwright in England. "Forced to write for bread and not ashamed to own it," Behn rapidly developed a reputation for quick wit, political timeliness, and a concern for the cultural limitations placed on women. Her inaugural play, The Forc'd Marriage, was staged in 1670; and popular demand allowed for her second play, The Amorous Prince, to follow just five months later in 1671. Strengthened by positive reviews, Behn used The Amorous Prince to further develop the themes that would characterize her career, examining how contemporary approaches to sex and marriage placed women at social disadvantage. Notably, the legal ban on female actors had only recently been lifted from the English stage in 1660; and The Amorous Prince was one of the first plays to use the Shakespearean device of the cross-dressing "breeches part" with a woman actor. Again, Behn won over her audience. Following the success of The Amorous Prince, Behn declared "I value fame as much as if I had been born a hero" (Blain, Grundy & Clements). Yet for a time, Behn's name fell out of a literary canon that privileged male playwrights. It was the production of the first Norton Anthology of Women's Literature and the advent of women's studies courses in the late 1980s allowed scholars and students to rediscover Behn's drama. And along with The Forc'd Marriage, The Rover, and Oroonoko, The Amorous Prince stands as one of her most influential and memorable works.

      - Burgos, Juan de (S. I.), Discursos historiales panegyricos de las glorias de la Sereníssima Reyna de los Ángeles en su sagrada casa de Loreto. Adornos de escritura sacra y santos padres a la Historia Lauretana, que escrivió el padre Oracio Turselino de la Compañía de Jesús. Con los sucesos y aumentos hasta el año de mil seiscientos y cinqüenta y nueve¿, dividos en quatro libros¿, Madrid, Jospeh Fernández de Buendía, 1671. Folio (29 x 20,5 cm.), 19 hs., incluido grabado calcográfico + 404 págs. + 1 h. Grabado calcográfico de nuestra Señora Lauretana a plena página; capitales, remates y una representación de la Imago Cruci xilográficos. Encuadernación de época en piel, con nervios, tejuelo con título y adornos dorados en lomo. Pequeños defectos en el lomo y en el vértice inferior izquierdo. Papel con acidez por la tinta ferrogálica, pequeños agujeros de polilla en la parte superior sin afectar a texto. Obra rara en mercado, de la que el Catalogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español (CCPB000035393-0) recoge apenas 6 ejemplares en bibliotecas públicas. Notable versión ampliada de la Lauretanae historia quinque (Roma, 1597), del profesor de gramática e historiador jesuita, Orazio Torsellini (S. I.), 1545-1599, en la que se cuenta con detalle la historia de la Santa Casa en la que la Virgen recibió el anuncio de la encarnación del Arcángel y donde habitó con Jesús y José. Según comenta en el Prólogo el propio Juan de Burgos (S.I.), decidió continuar relatando lo sucedido desde ese año de 1597 hasta su tiempo, para lo que sirvió de la traslación al toscano de Bartolomé Zucchi, De l¿Historia Lauretana cinque, impresa en Milán en 1600. Asimismo tuvo en cuenta la traducción castellana del padre Juan de Rojas (S.I.), Historia Lauretana, en que se cuentan las traslaciones, milagros y sucessos de la santa casa de N. Señora de Loreto¿ (Madrid, 1603); y especialmente La S. Casa abbelita¿ (Macerata, 1648) del capitán Silvio Serragli, y el Santuario Lauretano de Antonio Salto (Loreto, 1659). Juan de Burgos (1595-1682), fue Rector del Colegio de Santa Ana de México y Calificador del Santo Oficio en el Santo Tribunal Mexicano. De hecho, su obra parece estar pensada especialmente para su difusión en el Nuevo Mundo en donde ya se gozaba de una notable devoción mariana, según declara en el Prólogo: «Tiene la Iglesia del Colegio del Espíritu Santo de la Compañía de Jesús de la Puebla de los Ángeles en la Nueva España un Altar dedicado a la Sagrada Madona Lauretana, dotado de bastante renta para quatro festividades de los Misterios de su Sagrada Casa, que se celebran con aparato, particularmente la fiesta titular, y en sus Sermones se refieren los prodigios, los favores y misterios de la sacra y prodigiosa Casa, con que amorosamente se han estampado en los coraçones las noticias Lauretanas, y deseando que en esta América se haga presente la Sagrada Casa de Loreto, sus milagros y patrocinio, para que sus naturales y vezinos Europeos gozen lo que sienten, y gozan los innumerables peregrinos de todo el mundo que la visitan, que no es menos amorosa la Sagrada Madona Lauretana, a los que pudieron, y merecieron verla en su divino simulacro en su Casa, a los que veneran en sus distancias porque si esta Divina Señora en su primeras mudanças desde la Asia a Europa, se le s entró por las puertas con toda su casa, sin averla obligado siquiera con sus deseos, ¿quién duda que se dignará de asistir con su Patrocinio a los que la invocan estando lexos? ¿La estampan en sus memorias? ¿La imprimen en sus coraçones? Y, ¿la avivan en sus afectos?, como se ha experimentado en México, y en la Puebla de los Ángeles, y lo muestran los muchos votos y preseas de sus Altares». [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire et Voyage de la Terre-Sainte, ou? tout ce qu'il y a de plus remarquable dans les Saints lieux, est tres-exactement descrit... Ouurage enrichi de plusieurs figures en taille douce.

      Lyon:: Chez Pierre Compagnon, & Robert Taillandier, 1671., 1671. 4to. [xiv], 358 pp. Woodcut title vignette, 16 folding engraved plates, 1 map (of Palestine & Jerusalem); light foxing. [Plates are located facing pp. 1, 72, 114, 129, 136, 144, 152, 160, 162, 166, 176, 184, 188, 190, 192, 266, 315]. [COMPLETE]. Modern antique-style calf, raised bands, elaborate gilt-stamped spine compartments, covers tooled in blind. Fine. Second illustrated edition, illustrated with 16 Plates & a Map of the Levant. Jacques-Florent Goujon was a fur trader, before receiving a vocation and taking the habit of Cordelier in November 1636. He traveled to the Holy Land in 1666 and stayed for two years in Jerusalem. This interesting and well-illustrated volume relates the events of his journey, and endeavors to describe various significant locations in detail, with special attention being given to chapels, churches, Christ, Aleppo, the Dead Sea, archeological monuments and burial sites. Chapters [or "Visites"] include such subjects as "Mount Tabor", "Mummies and Pyramids", "The Holy Sepulcher", "Mount Zion", "The Mountains, and the Deserts", "Syria", and "of Egypt in General". While Goujon's interests are primarily religious, a large portion of the text is devoted to secular matters such as local customs, geography, and architecture. / "The issue [of colorful exaggeration in pilgrimage writing] remained alive in the work of Jacques Florent Goujon, a Franciscan who had spent two years (beginning in 1668) making observations, taking notes, and mulling over his experiences in the Holy Land. His Histoire et Voyage de la Terre Sainte (Lyon, 1670), a thoroughly Custodial work, explicitly urged the contrast to be drawn between a pilgrimage (such as his own) that was composed by a traveler who lived in Palestine over an extended period of time and a pilgrimage by a traveler who, however devout, was merely passing through. ...Tension and competition between pious visitors and pious residents of the Holy Land became a hovering smoke in the literature of pilgrimage. ..." "In Goujon, the perennial problem, of writing something new in a tradition of centuries reporting on the same places, is related to this matter of the comparison between the resident's thick interpretation of the Holy Land and the visitor's thin impressions of the same scene. Something to notice about Goujon is his use of a new style of language. He speaks of his seeming to "uncover (desrobant) the history and outline of the holy places" and remarks that "each step that Christ took conceals mysteries (cache des mystères) which it is not easy to explain thoroughly." It is for this reason that one must make repeated visits to individual places. One cannot speak too often of the sacred places. There is always more to say. "These are the same places sanctified by these august mysteries that I have described. One cannot reflect enough on them. However devout he is, the Christian cannot often enough meditate upon them." "This is something of a conceptual breakthrough. Within the world of the pilgrimage, Goujon has found a new way to attack the old problem. There is always need for new books of pilgrimage, and not simply because earlier authors were imperfect or forgetful reporters or because things change over time or because everyone sees things from a different angle." - F.

        Veduta del Castello, e Ponte Sant'Angelo, abbellito, et adornato con le statue degli angeli da Papa Clemente IX. Disegno del Cav. Gio. Lorenzo Bernini nuovamente delineata, et intagliata da Gio. Battista Falda da Valduggia.

      "Rara incisione su rame pubblicata da Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. La stampa presenta un'iscrizione in basso a sinistra: ""Io Baptista Falda dell. e Sculpit. 1671"". Falda, nato a Valduggia, un piccolo villaggio di Valsesia in provincia di Novara, fu attivo a Roma dove collaborò con lo stampatore Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. La stampa mostra Ponte Sant'Angelo, a Roma, decorato con gli Angeli scolpiti da Gianlorenzo Bernini e altri scultori. Si vede una processione papale attraversare il ponte, in vista di Castel Sant'Angelo. In perfetto stato di conservazione." "Inscription in lower left corner of image: Io Baptista Falda / dell. e Sculpit. / 1671; Etcher born in Valduggia, a small village in Valsesia in the province of Novara, who was active in Rome where he collaborated with the printer Giovanni Giacomo de' Rossi. The print shows Ponte Sant'Angelo in Rome, decorated with sculptures of angels holding the Instruments of the Passion, that were designed by Gianlorenzo Bernini and other sculptors. A papal procession is seen crossing the bridge, with a view of Castel Sant'Angelo in the background. Splendid impression of this fine view of the festival held on the occasion of Pope CLEMENT X taking possession of the newly completed bridge at Sant'Angelo and the restored Castello Sant'Angelo. Most of the celebrated statues which Bernini and his studio executed for this bridge were completed in 1669 when Pope Clement IX, who had given Bernini the commission, died. The ""Angel with the Cross,"" the statue in the right row on the bridge and considered the masterpiece of ERCOLE FERRATA, was not completed until 1670 and in the following year the bridge was formally inaugurated. In the foreground is the sedia gestatoria holding Pope Clement X followed by his College of Cardinals. The engraving was entrusted by Bernini to Giovanni Battista Falda, the most accomplished architectural engraver in Rome. Bernini had given his designs to Faldo for the engraving. Their close relationship is evident in Falda's inclusion of Bernini's plan for the Colonnade of St. Peter with the so-called terzo braccio, which was never completed. Perfect condition." Gandellini, Notizie degli Intagliatori, (Siena 1808-1816), vol. II, p. 7.

        De Fabrica triremium liber.

      Amsterdam: [Christoffel Cunradus,], 1671. Quarto (201 × 142 mm). Contemporary vellum, title inked to the spine, marbled edges. Superb folding etched frontispiece by Romeyn de Hooghe showing 5 separate sections of oared vessels, printer's device to title page, diagrams to the text, extensive use of Hebrew and Greek types. Eighteenth-century ownership inscription of the classical scholar Johann Christoph Wernsdorf to the first blank. Covers just a little rubbed and mildly sprung, first blank loose, light toning, a highly attractive copy. First and only edition of this uncommon treatise on ancient shipbuilding, drawn from classical and Biblical sources, illustrated with a beautiful, etched frontispiece by de Hooghe. Born in Tönningen, Schleswig-Holstein, around 1630, Meibom was a Danish philologist and polymath scholar probably best known for his work on music in antiquity. His Antiquae musicae auctores septem of 1652 printed seven Greek works together with his Latin translations of them, and it is known that he attempted concerts of reconstructed Greek music. Meibom was summoned to the court of Queen Christina; became a professor at the Soroë Academy at the time when Christian IV was attempting to turn it from a "knight academy" into a full university; was later chief of the customs office as Helsingöer; and was made professor of history at the Athenaeum in Amsterdam in 1668. In the present work he essays an accurate reconstruction of the construction and organization of the ancient trireme from a collation and analysis of contemporary sources. Dedicating the book to the kings, princes and Christian republics of the shores of the Mediterranean, he explains that triremes were the principal warships of the ancient world and assures his readers that he has "tried, by means of this book to re-launch them into the sea, not from ship-sheds where they, having been pulled on the shore, have stood until the present time, but brought forth from the much-venerated ancient monuments of letters." An important early-modern work of marine archaeology.

      Artist: Wit de Frederick (d) ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: (d)1671 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at lower centerfold; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 56; - description: Map shows South Germany with Schwaben and Bayern, Suisse, South Tirol, Luxemburg and partly Austria; - vita of the artist: Frederik de Wit (1610 ? 1698) His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page "Atlas Maior" but continued to use his old title page. His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps. Frederik de Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop. In ca.1675 Frederik de Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies. Frederik de Wit new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. Frederik de Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets.In 1695 Frederik de Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firm?s printing plates.Dating Frederik de Wit atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.

With additions by the notable legal lexicographer Thomas Blount, author of the Nomo-Lexikon (1670). English and Law French in parallel columns. First published in 1527 by John Rastell, this was both the first English dictionary and first English law dictionary. It was originally written in Law French with the Latin title Expositiones Terminorum Legum Anglorumae. Later editions were produced by his son, William, who is believed to be the editor or translator. (Some sources claim, erroneously, that William is the author.) Quite popular with students and lawyers due to its clarity and concision, it went through at least twenty-five editions by 1721. A final reissue appeared in 1819. As Marvin observes, it is a useful dictionary because it "reflects the common law at the close of the year-book period with much fidelity.": Legal Bibliography 599.
