Polydorus Vergilius
Daniele Elzeviro, Amsterdam, 1671. Volume in 12° legato in pelle, titolo al dorso a 5 nervi decorato a scomparti, finemente ornato ai piccoli ferri, sguardie, bianca, doppio frontespizio, il primo inciso in rame animato da tre figure (si riconosce Gutemberg ed il monaco inventore della polvere pirica, la terza figura è un uomo con corona che ha tre facce visibili), il secondo stampato con bella marca tipografica (antica scritta a pennino), 20 cc., 512 pp., bianca al verso l'ultima, occhiello del De Prodigiis con propria numerazione di 100 pp., 46 carte d'indici, bianca finale. L'opera del Polidoro, segretario del Duca di Urbino, abbraccia tutti i rami possibili dello scibile del tempo (medicina, scienze, politica, religione, magia, astrologia, occultismo, teatro, leggi, navigazione, filosofia, orologi, musica, agricoltura, caccia, pesca, armi, giochi, arte, colori, seta, prostituzione, invenzione della stampa, enologia e quant'altro), una marea di nozioni atte a soddisfare anche le domande (cinquecentesche) più astruse. Volume d'erudizione, dunque e di piacevole consultazione. Fa specie che anche ques'opera sia finita sotto l'occhio grifagno della Santa Inquisizione controriformista che lo mise all'indice e ne permise nuovamente la diffusione dopo un'accurata expurgatio. Trovare in circolazione, soprattutto in Italia una copia in versione non purgata è fatica sisifea. Questa presentata, in splendide condizioni, carta greve e bianca (anche ciò rimarchevole visto il periodo d'edizione), assolutamente esente da mende, è proprio una delle rare copie nel testo originale con l'ag … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mr. Rutherfoord (Samuel Rutherford)
No Place: Anonymous, 1671. Title page states- "The First, Containing these which were written from Aberdeen, where he was confined by a sentence of the High Commission, drawn forth against him, partly upon the account of his declining them, partly upon the account of his Non-Conformitie. The Second, Containing some which were written from Anwoth, before he was by the Prelats persecution thrust from his Ministry; & others upon diverse occasions afterward, from St. Andrew, London, &etc.. Now published for the use of the people of God: but more particularly for those who now are, or may afterwards be, put to suffering for Christ and His cause. By a well-wisher to the work and to the people of God. The second Edition, Printed in the Yeer (sic) 1671". According to Alexander Whyte in "Samuel Rutherford and His Companions" ..."There is no editor's name on the title-page, no publisher's name, and no place of printing or of publication. Only two texts of forewarning and reassuring Scripture....That is all. It would not have been safe in 1664 to say more." Nor in 1671, when this Second Edition was published. Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661) was a Scottish Presbyterian scholar, theologian, controversialist, preacher, and author, and one of the Scottish Commissioners to the Westminster Assembly, who is best remembered for his "Letters" and for his political book "Lex, Rex ", which was an important rebuttal of the divine right of kings theory. He might well have been punished with death for his writings had he not already been on his deathbed. Bound in likely 18th century Full Calf, red le … [Click Below for Full Description]

Histoire de l'état présent de l'Empire Ottoman : contenant les maximes politiques des turcs ; les principaux points de la religion mahometane, ses sectes, ses hérésies, & et ses diverses forces de religieux
1671 1244 - Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgank, 1671, in-12, 498-[6] pages dont le frontispice, 17 (sur 18) planches dépliantes et une figure dans le texte, l'ensemble gravé sur cuivre, velin rigide à petits recouvrements de l'époque, titre manuscrit à l'encre en tête du dos, Ouvrage qui "est sans contredit le meilleur que l'on eût alors sur la Turquie, et il se lit encore avec intérêt" (Willems). Il se compose de trois livres : I. Des maximes politiques des Turcs - II. De la religion des Turcs - III. Où il est traité de la milice des Turcs. La traduction de Briot avait paru à l'origine à Paris en 1670 ; Abraham Wolfgang, l'un des principaux rivaux des Elzevier à Amsterdam, a en donné 3 éditions, entre 1670 et 1672. Paul Ricaut (ou Rycaut, 1628-1700) voyagea durant quelques années en Europe, en Asie et en Afrique. Attaché comme secrétaire au comte de Winchelsea, il suivit en 1661, l'ambassade extraordinaire de Charles II auprès du sultan Mehmed IV à Constantinople. Ce séjour lui permit de découvrir de façon détaillée les mœurs et la religion des Turcs. Il rédigea en 1663 les articles du traité de paix conclu entre l'Angleterre et le gouvernement ottoman, et obtint le privilège pour les navires anglais d'être exemptés du droit de visite. La première édition anglaise de sa relation date de 1667-1668, mais la plupart des exemplaires furent détruits pendant le grand incendie de Londres. Celle-ci est ornée, en copies inversées, des figures réalisées par Sébastien Le Clerc pour l'édition parisienne de 1670. Il manque la planche dépliante de la p. 334 (les derviches).

ABBOT, Robert
London: Printed by J.R. for John Williams, 1671. [20], 76, 79-102pp. Recent antique-style blind-ruled calf, contrasting morocco title-label, gilt, to upper board. New endpapers. Marginal chipping, marking and signs of adhesion to preliminaries. With manuscript biographical notes on William Rogers to title, and the inscription of Edward Perronet to verso: 'The gift of Mr Thos. Smith esq. Aldermn. and Mayor of Cant. to E. Perronet of the same place on Tu. Nov. 19th 1771'. Very occasional notes to text. A rare survival of the popular seventeenth-century funeral sermon, which recounts the sinful life and bad end of the local apothecary William Rogers. After a holy upbringing, the Kentish medical man's life is described as having descended into keeping poor company, drinking, neglecting his religious habits and refusing to recant his sinful ways. He is struck down on the very morning he intended to return to his local Church, and proceeds to reveal his deathbed fears of damnation (echoing the notorious Nicodemite Francis Spira) to Robert Abbot, his local Vicar. Originally given by Abbot at Cranbrook, Kent in January 1636, this sermon on the text of Proverbs iv. 19., captured the popular print imagination in a similar manner to Nathaniel Bacon's contemporary account of Spira's anguish. It was first published soon after as The young-mans warning-peece (London, 1636) and featured in contemporary ballads. Extant copies prove that the work was reprinted in 1637, 1639, 1652 and 1657 before this apparently final edition appeared. All are rare; ESTC locates only a single copy of present … [Click Below for Full Description]

By GUILLELMI (aka Guillelmo) DONDINI - Bononiensis E Societate Jesu. Roma, 1671. FIRST EDITION. Collated page by page with the 1671 copy at the AUSTRIAN NATIONAL LIBRARY. (The 1671 Austrian National Library copy can be found using a Google Book Search for a 1671 Edition of this book.) In addition to the copies in National Libraries and Museums, this 1671 First Edition is noted in numerous early bibliographic books and materials (e.g. Memoires de la Societe de L'Histoire de Paris et De L'Ile de France, published by H. Champion, 1876). This 1671 First Edition was REPUBLISHED in 1673, 1675, 1676, and many subsequent years (e.g. 1750). Though many believe the 1673 edition is the first edition, IT IS NOT, as a collation with the 1671 Austrian edition and numerous bibliographic citations clearly show.

Bierens de Haan 5368; Bruzelius, pp. 12-13; Verkruijsse, Romeyn de Hooghe 1671.21. Large paper copy of the first edition of the first, most authoritative and important book on ship building of the 17th century, by Nicolaas Witsen (1641-1717), a Dutch diplomat, cartographer, burgomaster of Amsterdam and director of the VOC. Several variants have been noted, but most are merely press variants and have no bearing on the order of issue of copies of the book.There was a later issue where leaves 3O1-3 were cancelled and replaced with a single newly set and printed bifolium (paginated 473-4, 477-8). The text about the Dutch defeat of an English fleet in 1666 on the original pages 474-477 is omitted and a half sentence added on the new page 474. Our copy includes the longer original text, omitted in the later issue.The blank right margin of the double-page plate cut short. Binding in good condition, foot of spine cracked and top corners bumped. Good large paper copy of a classic of ship building.

Anthony Wood's assessment of Vincent was also (and more surprisingly) positive: ‘He was of smarter, more brisk, and florid parts than most of his dull and sluggish fraternity can reasonably pretend to; of a facetious and jolly humour, and a considerable scholar’ (Wood, Ath.

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.

LA MOTTE LE VAYER François de
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.
