FLEMING, Robert
[Amsterdam : s.n.], Printed in the year 1671. Second edition. (edition comes from Wing). 1671 Fulfillment of Scripture Fleming Scotland OT Bible Prophecy Presbyterian “Here we should have a most pleasant and clear view, how the Scripture of God, comprehenseth, the whole state of the Church, from the beginning to the end of time.” Fulfilling of the Scripture According to Lowndes, “This elaborate work, by a Presbyterian divine, contains a view of the operations of Providence in preserving the church through all the vicissitudes of ecclesiastical history.” Robert Fleming considered the church to be in a period of ‘dark time,’ but sought to justify it as being part of God’s providential plan. According to Raffe, Scottish Presbyterians saw Scotland as a modern-day Israel, ‘a land whose history was prefigured in the Old Testament.’ (Raffe, 103). Ultimately, Fleming looked at Scotland as being the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. Authorship and edition found in Wing. Item number: #502 Price: $499 FLEMING, Robert The fulfilling of the Scripture, or An essay shewing the exact accomplishment of the Word of God in his works of providence, performed & to be performed.

Antique print, titled: 'A Large Draught of the East End of Java and Madura shewing the Streights of Bally.' - Rare early example of this working English Sea Chart of part of Indondesia with Java, Madura, and the Straights of Bali, Indonesia. The chart includes extensive soundings, rhumblines and a compass rose.

Copperplate engraving / etching on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Samuel Thornton'. In 1671, the London cartographer John Seller (fl.1664-97) commenced work on The English Pilot , a work that intended to challenge Dutch hegemony in the sea atlas market. Intended to be published in four books covering different regions of the globe, Seller published an uncompleted book on 'Oriental navigation' in 1675. Unable to continue this Herculean endeavour, Seller sold his rights to John Thornton, the official hydrographer to the English East India Company. Thornton took up the project with great fervour, publishing his first editions in 1689. Thornton did not publish his first edition of the Third Book, detailing navigation in the East Indies, until 1703. While Thornton largely based his charts on those of earlier Dutch cartographers, most notably those found in Pieter Goos' Zee-Spiegel and Lucas Janz Waghenaer's Mariner's Mirror, The English Pilot proved to be enormously popular.When John Thornton died in 1708, his brothe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antique print, titled: 'A Large Draught of the East End of Java and Madura shewing the Streights of Bally.' - Rare early example of this working English Sea Chart of part of Indondesia with Java, Madura, and the Straights of Bali, Indonesia. The chart includes extensive soundings, rhumblines and a compass rose. By the 18th century this area was well-known to mariners, having been extensively explored first by the Portuguese and later by agents of the Dutch East India Company. Copperplate engraving / etching on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Samuel Thornton'. In 1671, the London cartographer John Seller (fl.1664-97) commenced work on The English Pilot , a work that intended to challenge Dutch hegemony in the sea atlas market. Intended to be published in four books covering different regions of the globe, Seller published an uncompleted book on 'Oriental navigation' in 1675. Unable to continue this Herculean endeavour, Seller sold his rights to John Thornton, the official hydrographer to the English East India Company. Thornton took up the project with great fervour, publishing his first editions in 1689. Thornton did not publish his first edition of the Third Book, detailing navigation in the East Indies, until 1703. While Thornton largely based his charts on those of earlier Dutch cartographers, most notably those found in Pieter Goos' Zee-Spiegel and Lucas Janz Waghenaer's Mariner's Mirror, The English Pilot proved to be enormously popular.When John Thornton died in 1708, his brothe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Holoyoke, Blount, Phillips and Minsheu had made earlier attempts at compiling English etymologies, but this work was issued at a time when Anglo-Saxon scholarship was being revived, and it had considerable influence over contemporary and later etymologists; its comprehensiveness exceeded that of the earlier lexicographers.

Rückenschild und handgeschr. Rückentitel (fleckig). Der Jesuit Athanasius Kircher war einer der grossen Universalgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts. Seit 1638 am Collegium Romanum als Lehrer für Mathematik, Physik und Orientalistik beschäftigt, wurde er für vielfältige Sonderaufgaben von diesen eigentlichen Arbeiten freigestellt und widmete sich verstärkt seinen eigenen Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Medizin (Ursachen und Bekämpfung der Pest, der Erforschung der Hieroglyphen) und dem Ausbau seiner bedeutenden Antiquitätensammlung). Diese Arbeiten sicherten ihm bleibenden Ruhm. Zahlreiche Erfindungen gehen auf ihn zurück: Laterna magica, Windharfe, eine magnetische Uhr, Bleipipelines u.a. - Der offiziellen Lehrmeinung gemäss wandte er sich gegen das kopernikanische Weltbild, vertrat dieses aber in seinen späten 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 zeitgenössische astrologische und kosmologische Wissen eingeführt" (Dünnhaupt).
