        Littleton's Tenures, in French and English. With an Alphabetical

      1671. The First Edition of Littleton with Parallel Texts in English and Law-French Littleton, Sir Thomas [d. 1481]. Littleton's Tenures, In French and English. With an Alphabetical Table of the Principal Matters Therein Contained. London: Printed by John Streater, James Flesher and Henry Twyford, Assigns of Richard Atkins, and Edward Atkins, 1671. [xxii], 436 (i.e. 426), [2] pp. Main text in parallel columns. 12mo. (5-1/4" x 3"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, small chip to head of spine, rear joint just starting at head, front hinge cracked but secure, rear pastedown loose and worn around the edges. Clean tear to fore edges of a few leaves with no loss to text. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, toning to a few text leaves, interior otherwise fresh. From the Earls of Macclesfield library with their armorial bookplate on the front pastedown, the library's small embossed stamp to title page, small shelf labels to spine. A lovely unsophisticated copy very well preserved in the original state. * First edition with parallel texts in English and Law French. Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Jamaicae Descriptio

      London 1671 - Fine hand color, excellent with full margins. ¿The prototype for most of the maps of the 17th century and many beyond¿ (Kapp). It was also the first large scale map of Jamaica, and aside from a small outline map, it was the first English map of the island. The map was based on a survey made by order of Sir Thomas Modyford, which was done only a year before this map was published. The island is shown on the map divided into 13 Precincts, 11 of which are named. The names of the landholders in each Precinct are given in the table below the map. It is clear from the map that the southern area of the island around Port Royal was by far the most densely settled part at the time. Unlike most of Ogilby¿s other maps that appeared in his work America, this one originated with Ogilby and was not a re-engraving of a work by Montanus. MCC No. 42, map 13.

      Amsterdam: Jacob Meurs, 1671.. Engraved titlepage, [8],585,[27]pp. plus seven portraits, thirty-one double-page plates, large folding hemispheric map, and fifteen double-page maps. Seventy engraved in- text illustrations. Small folio. Modern three quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, red gilt morocco label. [IN WORK WITH HEALD] Expert repair to lower corner of engraved titlepage. Bookplate on front pastedown. Overall quite clean internally. Very good. Correctly called "a classic book on America" by Borba de Moraes, Montanus' narrative contains a wealth of interesting maps and illustrations on both North and South America. The work was later translated into English, with various alterations, by John Ogilby, but this Dutch edition is the true first. The North American section of Montanus contains notable versions of the Blaeu map of New England and New Netherland, as well as versions of the John Smith Virginia and Carolina maps. Among the engravings in the text is one of the first engraved views of New York (the very first, the Van der Donck view, appeared twenty years earlier). There is also a detailed map of Bermuda. There are numerous engraved views of cities and scenes in Mexico and the Caribbean. Much of the second half of the volume is devoted to Brazil, where the Dutch were deeply involved for decades in the 17th century, illustrated with numerous maps and views. The large double-sheet views are excellent and much copied in later publications; but, as Church comments: "The finely executed engravings of this work are especially brilliant in this, the original edition." Howes states that the portrait of the Prince of Nassau, present herein, only appears in the first issue. The large map, credited here to "Gerardum a Schaden," as stated in Borba de Moraes, is also sometimes credited to "Jacobum Meursium," the publisher of the book. One of the most interesting iconographic and cartographic sources of early Americana. CHURCH 613. HOWES M733, "b." ASHER, NEW NETHERLAND 14. SABIN 50086. SERVIES 200.

      WŸrzburg, Johann Andreas Endter & Wolfgang Juniors Erben 1671. - Kl.-4¡. 11 Bll., 689 S., 7 Bll. (Register). Mit gest. Titel, Wappenkupfer und 12 Kupfertafeln. Pergamentbd. d.Z. mit goldgepr. RŸckenschild und handgeschr. RŸckentitel (fleckig). Der Jesuit Athanasius Kircher war einer der grossen Universalgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts. Seit 1638 am Collegium Romanum als Lehrer fŸr Mathematik, Physik und Orientalistik beschŠftigt, wurde er fŸr vielfŠltige Sonderaufgaben von diesen eigentlichen Arbeiten freigestellt und widmete sich verstŠrkt seinen eigenen Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Medizin (Ursachen und BekŠmpfung der Pest, der Erforschung der Hieroglyphen und dem Ausbau seiner bedeutenden AntiquitŠtensammlung). Diese Arbeiten sicherten ihm bleibenden Ruhm. Zahlreiche Erfindungen gehen auf ihn zurŸck: Laterna magica, Windharfe, eine magnetische Uhr, Bleipipelines u.a. - Der offiziellen Lehrmeinung gemŠss wandte er sich gegen das kopernikanische Weltbild, vertrat dieses aber in seinen spŠten Lebensjahren und gerade in vorliegendem Werk:"Der Astronaut Theodidactus (Kircher) wird von dem Engel Cosmiel zum Mond, den Planeten und den Sternen begleitet und auf diese Weise in das gesamte zeitgenšssische astrologische und kosmologische Wissen eingefŸhrt" (DŸnnhaupt). Kirchers Werk beschreibt den Erkenntnisstand der astronomischen Forschungen hinsichtlich der Sonne, der damals bekannten Planeten und des Sternenhimmels. Die Kupfertafeln zeigen Darstellungen der verschiedenen Planeten, darunter den Saturn mit Ringen, die MondoberflŠche, Sonnenflecken und vieles mehr. Die zweite Reise widmet sich dem Aufbau der Erde an der OberflŠche und im Innern; seine †berlegungen zur Geologie der Erde, zum Beispiel von einem heissen Erdkern, sind, wenn auch von seinem Zeitgenossen Descartes zutreffender vorausgeahnt, noch heute beeindruckend.

L' opera è indirizata al Padre Atanasio Kircker, sostenitore della generazione spontanea e avversario del Redi. L' intento dell' autore è quello di confutare le assurde credenze divulgate dai missionari francescani provenienti dalle indie e dalle americhe sulle virtù delle pietre, piante, droghe tropicali, erba "Pusu" e "Ginsing", pesci, pepe di ciapa, finocchio di cina, ragni e varie altre cose cui molti scienziati dell' epoca prestavano fede, Kircker compreso. Di rilievo è una disquisizione sul tabacco e sulla nicotina con i vari effetti dalle differenti regioni (pp. 40-46), sulle propietà della torpedine elettrica e molte altre pregievoli notizie. Le sei tavole illustrano queste "Mirabili virtù" che erano in discussione. Esemplare particolare con dedica autografa di Francesco Redi, manoscritta in basso al frontis al: "Conte Valerio Zani". i.

      1671 - Paris, chez L. Vendosme, 1671. Small 8:o. Extra engraved titlepage,(13,1 blank),189,200-01 pp. Engraved illustrations in the text. Nice sprinkled boards from the end of the 18th century with a pink title label. Sprinkled edges. Extra front fly-leaf with an old handwritten note. Bring Itineraria Svecana 55. Schiötz Itineraria Norvegica 563a***. Neither Bring nor Schiötz have noted the irregular pagination, although the latter corrects this in his addenda. The engraved portrait of the author lacking as usual. This is the first edition of La Martinière's travel book. The author was a French physician, probably born in Rouen, and the first Frenchman who published a description of a voyage along the coast of the northernmost part of Europe. He was in Copenhagen and signed on as a ship's surgeon when the Danish-Norwegian trade company decided to send three ships to the coasts far north in order to gather information regarding potential business opportunities. During the voyage, which started in February 1653, the author also visited Bohuslän in Sweden, but what he writes about this province is negligable. He might also have visited the Swedish part of Lapland, although this is uncertain. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
