PATRICK, SYMON
London: Printed for Fr. Tyton, 1671. Third Edition. This collection of popular devotional writings by an influential Anglican cleric is offered here in a binding similar in design and tooling to one attributed by Nixon and Davis to the celebrated Queens' Binder A (the artisans known collectively as the "Queens' Binders" produced finely decorated volumes for Catherine of Braganza and Mary of Modena, the queens consort of Charles II and James I). Giving the feeling of great swirling animation, our binding contains a floral roll border, a four-petaled flower with elongated top petal, and an eight-petaled flower on the spine--all of which appear on a 1675 edition of Allestree's "Government of the Tongue" attributed to Queens' Binder A. Nixon has tentatively identified "A" as William Nott, an identification based on a passage in Pepys' diary which recounts a visit to that famous binder, during which Pepys purchased a book "only that [he] might have one of [Nott's] bindings" (i.e., entirely for the binding, no matter the contents of the book). The only elaborately bound volume in the Pepys library at Cambridge that is not either a book of great personal value or a book dedicated to Pepys is a work on the succession to the Crown of England, which bears the tools of Queens' Binder A. Nott, like Samuel Mearne, was a publisher and bookseller in addition to his work as a binder. After his shop in Saint Paul's Churchyard was destroyed in the Great Fire, he moved his premises to Westminster--soon to be the location of choice for the leading binders--where he was active until about 1689. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Athanasius KIRCHER (1601 circa - 1680)
1671. Tavola topografica pubblicata nel volume "Latium, id est, nova et parallela Latii tum veteris tum novi descriptio", pubblicata ad Amsterdam nel 1671. L'opera s'inserisce nella lunga tradizione corografica, ma a differenza delle pubblicazioni dei predecessori, Kircher delimita lo studio alla sola area del Lazio. Incisione in rame in buone condizioni. Taken from "Latium, id est, nova et parallela Latii tum veteris tum novi descriptio", published in Amsterdam in 1671. The work followed a long tradition of "chorography", but unlike works of his predecessors, which tended to be on the whole of Italy, Kircher's book had as its focus the much more limited area of Latium itself. Kircher's explanation of the purpose of this study was that he wanted to use the physical remains of ancient Latium to teach the reality of human mutability and transience.

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 moeurs 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.

PETIT, Pierre...
Paris, Olivier de Varennes, 1671. ____ Première édition de cet ouvrage qui traite de construction du cylindre arithmétique. Mathématicien et physicien, intendant général des ports et fortifications de France, Pierre Petit (1598-1667) faisait parti du groupe de savants qui se réunissait autour de Marin Mersenne. Petit "exemplified thoses investigators who, in contrast to the increasingly doctrinaire Cartesians, emphasized the importance of accurate experimental observation in validating scientific theories. (...) He worked with or knew many of the major scientists of the period. In 1646 he collaborated with Blaise Pascal in Rouen and repeated Torricelli's experiment on the barometric vacuum." DSB 10, 546. La deuxième partie a son propre faux-titre : "Usage et construction du cylindre arithmétique". "The arithmetic cylinder is a development of Napier's bones. Petit refers to Napier's invention of logarithms, but he believes that this apparatus in form of a band instead of "bones" is an improvement. Rare." Catalogue Weil 19, 56.

Perli Bertani. 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.

PALAFOX Y MENDOZA, Juan de.
London: W. Godbid, 1671. Octavo, with the four page advertisement of the bookseller Moses Pitt at the rear, some of the early pages a little dusted and a few marks throughout; but a very good copy in a recent period-style binding of dark calf, spine decorated and gilt, with russet morocco label. First edition of this important early work on China, now quite rare.The first major news from China to be reported in the Western world was the Manchu conquest of 1644, beginning with Father Martinio Martini's generally accurate De bello tartarico (1654), a work which traced the history of the hostility between the Chinese and the Tartars north of the Great Wall.Palafox y Mendoza, who held bishoprics in both Spain and Mexico, served briefly as the viceroy of New Spain. In addition to his ecclesiastical duties, Palafox was also in charge of the dispatch of vessels to the Philippines during his stay in Mexico. In this capacity he collected "letters and memorials" on events in China as they were forwarded to him, using them to prepare this work, the second European history of the Manchu conquest.He begins his account with the rebellion of Li Tzu-ch'êng and Chang Hsien-Chung in 1640, and provides a good history of the conflict. Moreover, although saddened by the revolt, Palafox does not revert to simply depicting the Manchus as barbarians, arguing that the collapse of the empire was due largely to slow deterioration and neglect. His work is now primarily known for his interest in Chinese government, religion, dress, customs, military techniques and manners (see Donald F. Lach & Edwin J. … [Click Below for Full Description]

GARDENING]. GEISSNER, Johan Georg.
1671. For Sintzendorff: ADB XXXIV, pp. 408-412. A testimonial letter for a Hungarian journeyman gardener during his Wanderjahre, from Johan Georg Geißner, master "lust Gartner" at Schloss Laxenburg, outside Vienna, the principal summer residence of the Holy Roman Emperor, Karl VI. Philipp Ludwig Wenzel, Graf von Sinzendorff (1671-1742), was Imperial Erbschatzmeister, which apparently included responsibility for the gardens. Since 1721 he had also been director of the österreichischen Orientalischen Handelskompanie, so he may have had a hand in acquiring some of the garden's exotic plants. The document is folded up and has some minor stains on the back, but is in very good condition, though without the seal that would originally been attached with cords through the slits at the foot.

Mit gestochenem Frontispiz, 13 Textkupfern, davon 2 ganzseitig, 2 Textholzschnitten und 3 Druckermarken. Ohne die drei doppelseitigen Tafeln. Modernes Halbleder mit Rückentitel. Leicht altersfleckig oder schwach gebräunt. Kleine Bibl.-Stempel verso Titel. De Backer/Sommervogel II, 221. NDB II, 639. 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). Die Textkupfer zeigen u.a. eine Ansicht der Barbarathermen, des Erzbischöflichen Palastes, des Amphitheaters, eines … [Click Below for Full Description]

31 S. Späterer Umschlag. Rosenthal, BMP, 5823 Vgl. Krivatsy 11812. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe der 1671 in Altenburg bei Enoch erschienenen lateinischen Abhandlung "De visu talparum". - Interessante kleine Schrift über Maulwürfe, in dem der Pädagoge und Philosoph Thomasius (1622-1684) den Versuch unternimmt, den seit der Antike bestehenden Irrglauben der Maulwurf wäre blind oder hätte gar keine oder gar von Fell überzogene Augen zu widerlegen. Seine Argumentation ist belegt er jedoch nicht durch Untersuchungen des Tieres, sondern durch Logik: der Maulwurff ist ein solches Thier, das seine jungen lebendig gebühret, deshlaben muß er ja alle sensus haben. Denn das ist der Vernunfft gemäß, das ein soches Thier, das vollkommen ist gebohren worden, auch vollkommene Sinne haben müsse. (S. 31). Mit Besitzvermerk von Graf Joseph Ferdinand von Rheinstein und Tattenbach (1723-1802). - beim Übersetzer dürfte es sich um Marcus Molitor oder um den M(agister Johann Gottlieb) M(eister) handeln. - Seiten gebräunt, vereinzelte Flecken.
