        TRUTH EXALTED; IN A SHORT, BUT SURE, TESTIMONY AGAINST ALL THOSE RELIGIONS, FAITHS, AND WORSHIPS THAT HAVE BEEN FORMED AND FOLLOWED IN THE DARKNESS OF APOSTACY. - AND FOR THAT GLORIOUS LIGHT WHICH IS NOW RISEN, AND SHINES FORTH IN THE LIFE AND DOCTRINE OF THE DESPISED QUAKERS, AS THE ALONE GOOD OLD WAY OF LIFE AND SALVATION. PRESENTED TO PRINCES, PRIESTS, AND PEOPLE, THAT THEY MAY REPENT, BELIEVE, AND OBEY

      London. 1671.. 20pp. Small quarto. Modern red calf. Evenly tanned, a few leaves soiled around edges. Withal, very good. Rare third edition of William Penn's second published work, a spirited espousal of his religious beliefs above and beyond any other faiths. He discusses the condition of humanity since the fall from the Garden of Eden, criticizes Catholics for their rituals and beliefs, and attacks Protestants for their intolerance. "The passion of a new convert is clearly evident in this short pamphlet in which [William Penn] denounced the wickedness and errors of Catholics and Protestants alike and declared that Quakers alone hold the key to 'Life and Salvation.' Not yet caught up in the pamphlet war that Friends waged against their enemies, [Penn] apparently issued this blast against all other Christians out of sheer exuberance during his first months as a Quaker" - Bronner & Fraser. Apparently no copies of this edition are on OCLC, nor is it listed in Smith or Whiting's bibliographies of Friends' books. Bronner & Fraser locate only two copies. A rare early work by the future founder of Pennsylvania, showing the intolerance of a new convert to the Society of Friends. BRONNER & FRASER, PENN BIBLIOGRAPHY 2C. WING P1390 (recorded as a variant).

He was a Benedictine monk of the Congregation of St. Maur. The Abbey of La Trappe, founded by the Cistercian order was annexed to the domain of the Benedictines. It will be reformed according to the seventeenth 'the rule of strict observance'par Rance, much more rigid and severe than that of the Cistercians.

Reliure aux armes de Jean-Jacques Charron de Menars (Orléanais), Vicomte puis Marquis de Menars, 'Il fut un grand bibliophile et acquis vers 1679 la collection de Thou qu'il vendit au cardinal de Rohan' Olivier Pl. 185. TII. D'azur au chevron d'or accompagné de 3 étoiles d'or, couronne ducale supportée par 2 cygnes. Reliure en pleine basane d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Coiffe de queue frottée. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance'par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque.

        De fabrica triremium liber.

      Amsterdam, 1671. 4:o. (16),+ clxxxiv s.+ utvikbar grav. plansch. Enstaka träsnitt i texten. Tryckt på tjockare papper. Sammanbunden med: (SCHEFFERUS, Johannes.) Contantinii Opelii De fabrica triremium Meibomiana. Epistola perbrevis ad amicum. Eleuteropoli (=Freistadt), 1672. 4:o. (2),+ 34 s. Tryckt på tjockare papper. Samtida pergamentband med blindpräglad rygg med handtextad titel och äldre bibliotekslapp, pärmarna med blindpräglad ram. Försättsbladet med inklistrad grav. fartygsbild. Spår av borttaget exlibris. Collijn sp 828 (endast Karlstads stiftsbibliotek och Uppsala). Fant 32. Cicognara 1708 (för Meibom). Fint exemplar av Marcus Meiboms avhandling om antika stridsskepp, triremer, och Johannes Schefferus mycket sällsynta kritik av densamma. M. Meibom (1621-1711), som under en kort period 1652 var underbibliotekarie hos drottning Kristina i Stockholm, var den förste att komma på att namnet på skeppen kom av placerandet av åror på tre olika nivåer. Hur de var placerade däremot är fortfarande omtvistat. Schefferus var efter att ha publicerat "De militia navali veterum" 1654 en samtida auktoritet på området antika fartyg. Meibom angriper dock Schefferus på vissa punkter, och Schefferus svarar här med en skarp kritik av Meiboms skrift. Ett omtryck av Schefferus kritik sker senare i Graevius "Thesaurus antiquitatum Romanorum", 1699

        Cinq dialogues faits à l'imitation des anciens EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Mons|[Amsterdam]: Chez Paul de la Flêche [Blaeu], 1671. Fine. Chez Paul de la Flêche [Blaeu], A Mons [Amsterdam] 1671, In 12 (7,5x13cm), 332pp., relié. - Edition elzévirienne published under the pseudonym Oratius Tubero. Interestingly, this work has curiously not been indexed by Tchemerzine in his bibliography of first editions. Velin full flaps (Dutch binding). Smooth back. Title pen. Good copy. Probably the best known works of this skeptical philosopher (1588-1672), which was not intended for publication, but to his friends; work has indeed a freedom of tone and language rather unusual in this kind of exercise, even if the author stands behind the banner of the ancient philosophers (especially Cicero) that he made a formal loan and said. The dialogues focus on the manners and opinions with a final dialogue on the diversity of religions: From the skeptical philosophy; The skeptic banquet; Of privacy; Rare & eminent qualities of asses this time; the diversity of religions. Instead of the word end, we find these to Spanish: De las cosas mas seguras, La mas es segura dudar (From the most certain things, the more certain is doubt), creed and motto of the author. Bookplate nineteenth engraved with the arms at Besançon. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale elzévirienne parue sous le pseudonyme de Oratius Tubero. On notera avec intérêt que cette oeuvre n'a curieusement pas été répertoriée par Tchemerzine dans sa bibliographie des éditions originales. Reliure en plein vélin à rabats (reliure hollandaise). Dos lisse. Titre à la plume. Bon exemplaire. Sans doute le plus connu des ouvrages de ce philosophe sceptique (1588-1672), lequel n'était pas destiné à la publication, mais à ses amis ; l'ouvrage possède en effet une liberté de ton et de langage assez inhabituelle dans ce genre d'exercice, même si l'auteur se range derrière la bannière des philosophes de l'Antiquité (et surtout Ciceron) auxquels il fait un emprunt formel et déclaré. Les dialogues portent essentiellement sur les moeurs et les opinions avec un ultime dialogue sur la diversités des religions : De la philosophie sceptique ; Le banquet sceptique ; De la vie privée ; Des rares & eminentes qualites des asnes de ce temps ; de la diversité des religions. Au lieu du mot fin, on trouve ces vers espagnols : De las cosas mas seguras, La mas segura es dudar (Des choses les plus certaines, la plus certaine est le doute), credo et maxime de l'auteur. Ex-libris du XIXe gravé aux armes, à à Besançon.

        Relationi universali

      In Venetia: Perli Bertani, 1671. Fine. Perli Bertani, In Venetia 1671, in-4 (16x22,8cm), (8) 747pp. (36), relié. - New edition, after the original was published in 1591 and 1593. Illustrated with 4 folding maps of Gioseppe Rosatio, Europe, Asia, America and Africa, on gray background. The work went through many reprints in the seventeenth. Full vellum flexible time. Back to nerves Jansenist. Title in black pen. Universal geography Botero is a way to assess the real power of all states. Botero writes his Relazioni in the wake of his great political work from reasons of state and can only be understood in its wake. If the work is a classic universal geography, with a description of all parts of the world then known in the first part, the remaining parts describe the world this time of political and religious point of view, favoring instead the Catholic evangelism Worldwide. The book was originally a request of Cardinal Borromeo on the state of Christianity in the world. The Relazioni are transmitting a geopolitical worldview, but under the terms of the Counter-Reformation. Botero trying to reach the geographical space and political space, providing Catholicism against the Reformation and its future expansion. Many modern geographers made of the work of the charter birth of modern geography by using methods employed by Botero, although the book offers a triple worldview (geographical, political and religious) and not unilaterally Geographic. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1591 et 1593. Illustrée de 4 cartes dépliantes de Gioseppe Rosatio, l'Europe, l'Asie, l'Amérique et l'Afrique, sur fond grisé. L'oeuvre connut de nombreuses réeditions au XVIIe. Reliure en plein vélin souple d'époque. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre à la plume noire. La géographie universelle de Botero est un moyen d'évaluer la puissance réelle de tous les états. Botero écrit ses Relazioni dans la foulée de son grand oeuvre politique De la raison d'état et ne peut être comprise que dans son sillage. Si l'ouvrage est une géographie universelle classique, avec une description de toutes les régions du monde connues alors dans la première partie, les autres parties décrivent le monde cette fois du point de vue politique et religieux, privilégiant la place de l'évangélisme catholique dans le monde. Le livre était à l'origine une demande du cardinal Borroméo sur l'état de la religion chrétienne dans le monde. Les Relazioni sont donc la transmission d'une vision géopolitique du monde, mais placée sous l'angle de la Contre-Réforme. Botero tente de joindre l'espace géographique et l'espace politique, fournissant au catholicisme et à la contre Réforme sa future expansion. De nombreux géographes modernes firent de l'oeuvre la charte de naissance de la géographie moderne par l'utilisation des méthodes employées par Botero, même si le livre offre une triple vision du monde (géographique, politique et religieuse)et non unilatéralement géographique.

Large folio (51.8 x 37.4 cm). 30 pp., title page with engraved vignette, four engraved plates, one engraved text figure and one leaf with allegorical endpiece. Beautiful contemporary style quarter calf over marbled boards, vellum corners. Spine rich gilt with floral pattern and title. Edges red.l The French astronomer and founding member of the Académie Royale des Sciences, Jean-Felix Picard (1620-1682) was the first person to measure the size of the Earth to a reasonable degree of accuracy in a survey conducted in 1669-70, the results of which are printed here. In fact, he was less than a half percent off, being 25 times more accurate than the previous record of accuracy set by Tycho Brahe: a remarkable effort indeed. To reach this goal, Picard modified and improved his equipment considerably. "In collaboration with Adrien Auzout he perfected the movable-wire micrometer ... During the summer of 1667 he applied the astronomical telescope to the instruments used in making angular measurements" (DSB). His methods and means are clearly represented in this work and the instruments he used are figured in great detail. The French Academy of Sciences emphasized the importance of Picard's work by including it in their first publication. This copy is in the very rare first edition, being an extraordinary large folio edition presented to royals only and not offered for sale. A few spots to one plate, some small old marginal repairs, otherwise a very good clean copy. DSB X, pp. 595-597. See also Houzeau & Lancaster, p. 225.

Enc. en pergamino, tejuelo, cortes pintados.

Jan Jansz imprime junto a los herederos de Elizei Weyerstraet. Kircher es conocido por la gran variedad de temas que trató en sus obras (jeroglíficos, ciencias naturales, musicología, historia de China.). Sin embargo, su labor como arqueólogo y topógrafo no ha sido lo suficientemente valorada. En Latium las fuentes históricas y literarias clásicas se unen a la evidencia física en lo que constituye un intento temprano de estudio multidisciplinar. Los espléndidos mapas e ilustraciones que acompañan a la obra, algunos de Romeyn de Hooge, suscitaron un gran interés y Latium se convirtió en la chispa que contagió el interés por la arqueología en la Italia de su tiempo.

        Pratique de chymie, divisée en quatre parties, par S. Matte La Faveur, distillateur & demonstrateur ordinaire de la chymie en la faculté de Medecine de Montpelier. Avec un avis sur les eaux minerales

      Montpelier, Daniel Pech, 1671 [1672]. Small 8vo. [x], 360, 10 (explanatory leaves), [xxxii] pp. Engraved (armorial) frontispiece, 14 engraved plates on 12 large, folded leaves, one being a table of chemical symbols. Contemporary full calf. Spine with five raised bands, rich gilt compartments with floral vignettes and gilt title. Edges mottled red.l "Extremely rare" (Neville) complete copy, with all the plates, of a groundbreaking work on distillation by the self-taught French chemist Sébastien Matte La Faveur (1626-1714). According to Wikipedia, his discovery of styptic water and other important researches merited him the place of Demonstrator of Chemistry at the Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier, a position created for him in 1675. He was the inventor of a lavender distillate, "the water of the Queen of Hungary", which became very popular in European courts. Perhaps as a consequence he became the private pharmacist of King Louis XIV and was awarded the privilege of teaching chemistry at the Sorbonne, and at the University of Montpellier. Later he became intendant of the chair of chemistry at the Jardin du Roi (1680 to 1684). This book is his most important work. Daniel Pech was perhaps merely the printer; the title page states that work was sold by Matte La Faveur. Although the title page is dated 1671, the final print date is stated to be le premier Fevrier 1672. The explanatory leaves are numbered 1-10, of which 1-2 have been moved to the first folded plate, between pp. 46-47. The first folded leaf contains the first three plates, a fact not noted in some other collations. The frontispiece, which shows a coat-of-arms should not be counted as a plate. A complete description of the plates and explanatory leaves is as follows: 1. Planche des vaisseaux, with explanatory leaf [pp. 1-2] (between pp. 46-47); 2. Bain Marie (included on the folding Planche des vaisseaux), [explanation on p. 3 after p. 360]; 3. Petit fourneau de reverbere clos. (included on the folding Planche des vaisseaux), [explanation p. 3 after p. 360]; 4.

        Esperienze Intorno

      1671. first edition. Kircher's Nemesis Spurns His Claims Yet AgainOne of Three Companions To Petrucci's Defense of KircherA Fine Presentation Copy From The AuthorREDI, Francesco. Esperienze Intorno. A Diverse Cose Naturali, e Particularamente a Quelle, che ci son Portate dal Indie Fatte da Francesco Redi e Scritte in una Lettera al Reverendissimo Padre Atanasio Chircher della Compagnia di Gesu'. Firenze: All'Insegna della Nave, 1671. First edition of this rare and important treatise by the famous Italian naturalist, addressed to his colleague Athanasius Kircher, which includes the first scientific test of nicotine and its harmful effects. Quarto (9 7/16 x 6 7/8 inches; 240 x 175 mm). Inscribed at the foot of the title-page "Mei [illegible] de Molinari. Auctorus munus" [i.e., gift of the author]; Early ink signature of the recipient, Giuseppe Molinari on front paste-down. 4(- 1), A-T4. [6], 152 pp (79 ff.) Title in red and black. Six engraved plates.Contemporary vellum over boards, red leather lettering label on spine. Ink manuscript title on lower edge. Ink manuscript title on lower edge of text block. Housed in a fleece-lined half black morocco clamshell case.Redi's "investigations of several botanical and zoological specimens, including some brought from India; among them were Chinese star anise, 'stones' from cobras and iguanas, vanilla beans, and a leaf from the chinchona tree. The treatise is in the form of a letter to to Athanasius Kircher" (Norman). "Raro" (Prandi). Within is Redi's dismissal of Kircher?'s claims for the miraculous curative qualities of the snake-stone [the "stones" that Norman refers to], a missionary artifact that allegedly sucked snake venom from a wound. Redi first dealt with this issue in his first work, Osservazioni intorno alle vipere (1664), "the first methodical study of snake venom" (Norman). Redi's work was inspired by the arrival in Florence of medical and natural curiosities, some of which are illustrated in the six plates, which were brought back from the East and West Indies in 1662 by Franciscan missionariesHe enjoys a distinguished place in the canonical histories of biology on the grounds of his experiments aimed at discrediting the idea of spontaneous generation, which were reunited in his Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'insetti (1668). In that work Redi explicitly set himself against Athanasius Kircher. The German Jesuit had defended the idea of spontaneous generation by putrefaction which he discussed… in his Archa Noë and also in in his Mundus Subterraneus" (de Asua & French, A New World of Animals, p. 210).In return for these slaps to his reputation, "Kircher had his fellow Jesuit and disciple Gioseffo Petrucci publish the Prodromo apologetico alli studi Chircheriana (Apologetic Forerunner to Kircherian Studies) in 1677. Attacking the ?'envious and strident ignorance of his unjust accusers,?' Petrucci painted a portrait of Kircher as he wanted to be remembered: a judicious experimenter who carefully weighed all the evidence before coming to any conclusions. Emphasizing Kircher?'s skepticism about natural phenomena, Petrucci countered the image of is master as a gullible consumer of tall tales about strange things by presenting him as the logical heir to Galileo. Citing Kircher?'s unparalleled knowledge of non-European nature, he quoted Augustine as a cautionary tale for disbelieving readers: ?'Some credible things are false, just as some incredible things are true.?' Petrucci invited readers to examine Kircher?'s own words in order to see the distortion that occurred in the characterization of his master in the words of critics. He promised to remove anything from his Prodromo Apologetica that readers found to be false" (Findlen, The Last Man To Know Everything, p. 39). Yet there is no evidence that Petrucci removed his defense of Kircher's snake-stones in the aftermath of this biting critique, nor of spontaneous generation.Curiously, however, Kircher and Redi exchanged correspondence expressing mutual admiration, as noted in Fletcher's paper, Medical Men in the Correspondence of Athanasius Kircher (Janus LVI, 4. 1969). Epistolary courtesy was customary amongst seventeenth century scientists who, though they might be in sharp disagreement, needed to remain on cordial terms to allow the free exchange of information to remain uninterrupted.Francesco Redi (1626-1698) was an Italian naturalist, physician, poet, and scientist - he "was one of the first parasitologists" (Norman). "After taking his degree in medicine, he entered the service of the Colonna family at Rome as a tutor, and held the position five years. In 1654 he went to Florence, where he acted as physician to the Grand dukes Ferdinand II and Cosimo III. He was constantly engaged in experiments intended to improve the practice of medicine and surgery, and yet found leisure for much literary work. He was an active member of several of the academies of the time, and, as an associate of the Crusca, aided in preparing its important Vocabolario. He taught in the Studio at Florence in 1666, as lettore publico di lingua toscana and was one of the first members of the Arcadia. His writings include a number of scientific documents, e.g. 'Osservazioni intorno alle vipere.' 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl' insetti,' 'Consulti medici,' etc." (Catholic Encyclopedia).Norman 1518. Prandi 26. Sabin 68516. Gamba 823.

      [Paris. nd, but 1671].. 3pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Some light foxing. Contemporary inscription. Very good. In an attempt to encourage the commerce of the early French colonies in the West Indies, this act declares that no export duty is to be charged on goods shipped to America, so long as the merchants bring back within six months certificates showing that these have been landed in America. The certificates are to be signed by the "Sieur Pelissier, l'un des Fermiers de Sa Majeste, ou du Sieur du Ruau Palu, Agent de la Compagnie de Indes Occidentales." This is a variant of Wroth 132, of which only one copy is known. OCLC locates just one copy, at the University of Oxford. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Étienne Charles de Loménie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life). WROTH, ACTS OF FRENCH ROYAL ADMINISTRATION 132 (ref).

Der ursprüngliche Sammler der Autographen war vermutlich Johann Nikolaus Frobesius (1701-1756), Philosoph und Mathematiker, Professor in Helmstädt, da sich im letzten Convolut der Briefe mehrere Episteln an Frobesius befinden, die unverkennbar auf ihn als den Sammler hinweisen. Die Sammlung enthält Originalbriefe des deutschen Philosophen Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Abschriften von Leibnizbriefen und Abschriften von Briefen anderer Gelehrter an Leibniz sowie ein Faszikel mit unterschiedlichem handschriftlichen Material von Leibniz und anderen. Diese Sammlung gelangte zusammen mit Pfaffs schriftlichen Nachlass nach dem Tod des Gelehrten in die Universitätsbibliothek Halle (Saale). 1887 fand der Bibliothekar Dr. Perlbach unter den ungeordneten Manuskripten Pfaffs die in ein Hallenser Doktordiplom eingeschnürte Autographensammlung. Das Faszikel wurde aus dem Nachlass Pfaffs herausgenommen und mit der Signatur Yg 8° 23 in den Handschriftenbestand der Universitätsbibliothek eingearbeitet." * Nice copy of Ausonius with interesting provenance: bought from the son of the Helmstedt scholar Frobese (Frobesius) in the auction of his father's books, with his handwritten ownership inscription, bound in contemporary overlapping vellum." * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.

        Relationi universali

      New edition, after the original was published in 1591 and 1593. Illustrated with 4 folding maps of Gioseppe Rosatio, Europe, Asia, America and Africa, on gray background. The work went through many reprints in the seventeenth. Full vellum flexible time. Back to nerves Jansenist. Title in black pen. Universal geography Botero is a way to assess the real power of all states. Botero writes his Relazioni in the wake of his great political work from reasons of state and can only be understood in its wake. If the work is a classic universal geography, with a description of all parts of the world then known in the first part, the remaining parts describe the world this time of political and religious point of view, favoring instead the Catholic evangelism Worldwide. The book was originally a request of Cardinal Borromeo on the state of Christianity in the world. The Relazioni are transmitting a geopolitical worldview, but under the terms of the Counter-Reformation. Botero trying to reach the geographical space and political space, providing Catholicism against the Reformation and its future expansion. Many modern geographers made of the work of the charter birth of modern geography by using methods employed by Botero, although the book offers a triple worldview (geographical, political and religious) and not unilaterally Geographic.

      All'Insegna della Nave 1671 Prima edizione. Cm.24,3x17. Pg.(8), 152. Legatura in piena pergamena molle, con alcune abrasioni ai margini. Frontespizio impresso in rosso e nero, con tavola calcografica raffigurante lo stemma mediceo. Contiene sei tavole fuori testo, con dettagli di "Pietre del serpente cobra de Cabelo; Pepe di Ciapa; Finocchio della China; Pietra de' serpenti di Mombazza; Pietre de' serpenti chiamate iguane; Radice della manique; Radice di Gio.

Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Una buona copia. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia). Nel presente testo Redi confuta alcune teorie correnti, diffuse principalmente dai missionari, circa strane virtù soprannaturali attribuite alle sostanze studiate. Di notevole interesse, ad esempio, le parti dedicate al tabacco, alle acque di ogni tipo, al mal di denti, agli animali esotici, etc.

        Antiquitatum et Annalium Trevirensium libri XXV.

      Lüttich, Hovius 1671.. 2 Bände (in 1). Folio (37,5 x 24 cm). 14 Blatt, 626 Seiten, 13 Blatt (ohne das weiße Blatt Nnnn2); 4 Blatt, 566 Seiten, 25 Blatt, 43 (recte 49) Seiten, 1 weißes Blatt. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz, 2 doppelblattgroßen Kupferstichen, einer dblgr. Karte mit Panoramaansicht von Trier, 13 Textkupfern, davon 2 ganzseitig, 2 Textholzschnitten und 3 Druckermarken. Zeitgenössischer blindgeprägter Schweinslederband über Holzdeckeln mit Pergament-Rückenschild und zwei intakten Metallschliessen. Einband angestaubt, vorderes Aussengelenk unten ca. 8 cm eingerissen. Titel mit altem handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk, Exlibris und handschriftlicher Besitzvermerk auf dem vorderen Innendeckel.. De Backer/Sommervogel II, 221. NDB II, 639, Hellwig, Mittelrhein 48 (mit Abb. der Karte). Zweite Auflage (eine Titelauflage der ersten aus dem Vorjahr, das Kolophon von Teil 2 ist noch 1670 datiert). 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 es 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 Geschichte des Trierischen Erzstifts." (NDB), "opus immortale" (Hontheim). Mit der Karte des Erzbistums, der Gesamtansicht von Trier, der Ansicht der Porta Nigra als Simeonskirche und zwei Ansichten der Igeler Säule. Die Textkupfer zeigen u.a. eine Ansicht der Barbarathermen, des Erzbischöflichen Palastes, des Amphitheaters, eines Maximiner Sarkophages, einer Hypokaustenheizung, Neumagener Steindenkmäler (u.a. Bibliothek) der Römerbrücke und des Heiligen Rocks. Ca. 12 weitere Seiten mit Münzen. Titelblatt mit 1722 datiertem handschriftlichen Besitzeintrag von Christoph Heinrich Freiherr von Greiffenclau zu Vollraths (* 21.3.1672 5. Juli 1727), aus einem der einflußreichsten und weitverzweigtesten Geschlechter in den geistlichen Erzbistümern und Fürstentümern des alten Reiches. Die Familie stellte je einen Kurfürst-Erzbischof von Trier und Mainz sowie zwei Fürstbischöfe von Würzburg. Die Greiffenclaus gelten zudem als die älteste Familie Europas, die Weinbau betreibt. Aufsehen erregte zuletzt Erwein Graf Matuschka-Greiffenclau der 1997 stilgemäß mit silberner Pistole den Freitod aufgrund eines Konkursantrags wählte. Christoph Heinrich Freiherr von Greiffenclau, der Vorbesitzer des Buches, war der Sohn des kurmainzischen Geheimrates und Reichsfreiherrn Georg Philipp Freiherr von Greiffenclau zu Vollraths (1620-1689, aus zweiter Ehe mit Anna Margaretha von Buseck) und 1687-1726 Domherr zu Trier, 1681 Domherr zu Würzburg, 1703 Propst des Ritterstifts St. Burkard zu Würzburg sowie 1713-1717 Domherr zu Bamberg. Sein Bruder Franz Friedrich von Greiffenclau zu Vollraths (1666-1729) war ebenfalls in die geistliche Laufbahn gelangt und war 1681 Domherr zu Bamberg, 1715-1718 und 1723-1726 Domherr zu Würzburg, Chorherr zu St. Burkard in Würzburg, wogegen anders sein Bruder Johann Erwein Freiherr von Greiffenclau zu Vollraths Burggraf zu Friedberg (1663-1727) mit zahlreichen Ämtern im Rheingau und der Wetterau war. Sein Stiefbruder Johann Philipp von Greiffenclau zu Vollraths (1652-1719, aus der ersten Ehe des Vaters mit Rosina von Oberstein), war von 1699 bis zu seinem Tode Fürstbischof von Würzburg und damit auch Herzog in Franken.
