"Brunet III, 668; Graesse IV, 22; De Backer I, 430,24. Erste Ausgabe dieses Fürstenspiegels mit einer Geschichte der Herrscherfamilie Joannius von etwa 820 bis 1357. ?Die Zweiteilung des Werkes ist so auffällig, da beide Teile extrem unterschiedlich sind, stilistisch wie inhaltlich. Mehrteiligkeit eines Werkes an sich ist für Kircher keine Besonderheit. im Falle des ?Principis Christiani Archetypon? aber fallen die Teile auseinander - hier der philosophische, von Kirchers Gedankenwelt geprägte Fürstenspiegel, dort die historische Genealogie, die kaum kommentierte Quellensammlung. Dies lässt vermuten, dass der zweite Teil. nicht von Kircher selbst verfasst wurde, sondern von einem seiner Schüler oder Assistenten. ? (Englmann, Sphärenharmonie und Mikrokosmus, 144). Englmann weist im weiteren Verlauf ihrer überzeugenden Argumentation dann diesen zweiten Teil Filippo Bonanni zu. - ?Kircher's handbook of the virtues proper to a prince; it is also an encomium of Honoratus Joannius, who, according to Kircher embodied those virtues. The Archetypon politicum is interesting not so much for its content - the history is unreliable - as for its noble and lucid style. Appended to the work are various poems in praise of Honoratus, composed in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Arabic, Aramaic, Samaritan, and Coptic - an impressive display of Kircher's virtuosity as a linguist" (Merrill 24).

Rara edizione originale riccamente illustrata da antiporta inc. raffigurante un porticato barocco con, sullo sfondo, alberi spogli (motivo ripreso dallo stemma dell'Accademia dei Gelati) e veduta della città di Bologna; al terzo f. ritratto del dedicatario, Card.

Dell'armi delle famiglie di G.Bombaci..'', cui si fa riferimento nella dedica. L'Accademia fu fondata nel 1588 in casa di Melchiorre Zoppio, ed era sicuramente attiva sul finire del Settecento. Tra i suoi affiliati, Montanari, Bombaci, Bonarelli, Fioravanti, Manzini e Marsili; l'autore era noto tra i Gelati come ''il Ritardato''. Magnifico esempl. di libro raro, e di notevole importanza per la cultura bolognese e l'emblemistica secentesca: su carta forte, in artistica legatura coeva alle armi della stessa Accademia dei Gelati, di cui sono noti due soli altri esempi, uno in marocchino bruno conservato al castello di Masino (cfr. Malaguzzi, De libris compactis, p. 98, tav. 37), ed uno in granata come il presente, ora alla Princeton University; le tre legature presentano un apparato assai simile tra loro, ma piccole differenze nella disposizione dei ferri. Accluso al presente esemplare è il raro opuscolo delle ''Leggi dell'Accademia de' ss.ri Gelati di Bologna. Col catalogo degli Accademici viventi l'anno 1682''. In Bologna, per li Manolessi, stampatori camerali, 1683, 3 parti in 1 volume in - 4, pp. (2), 33, (3). Legatura in carta gialla.

Al verso del primo f. compare inciso in rame lo stemma di Girolamo Camillo Baldi, accademico dei Gelati lodato e ricordato nell'edizione dello Zani a p. 271, a cui questa edizione delle Leggi venne probabilmente dedicata.

[8] leaves (including engraved title), 244 pp., [3] leavwes of index and errata. Printed in two columns. Contemporary vellum, gilt title on spine. Amsterdam, Johannes Jansson zu Waesberge, (March/April) 1672. Erstausgabe eines der bedeutendsten Bücher in der Geschichte der experimentellen Physik. Der Magdeburger Ingenieur, Physiker und Politiker legt darin seine wissenschaftlichen Experimente und deren Interpretation dar. Die Versuche Otto von Guerickes bezüglich der Luft und ihrer Wirkungen waren beim Erscheinenen seines vorliegenden Buchs bereits bekannt. Darin nehmen die Experimente und ihre speziellen Interpretationen das dritte von insgesamt sieben Kapiteln ein. Die kopernikanischen Vorstellungen vom Weltraum, gepaart mit Cusanus' Idee der Relativität und Unendlichkeit des Raumes waren für Guericke Anlass, sich Gedanken über die Substanz zwischen den Planeten und Fixsternen im All zu machen. Zur Überprüfung unternahm er den geglückten Versuch, ein "im Umfang kleines irdisches Vakuum zu erzeugen". Berühmtheit erlangtedann seine Vorführung anlässlich des Regensburger Reichstags von 1654, als sechzehn Pferde vergeblich die beiden 'Magdeburger Halbkugeln' auseinanderzuziehen versuchten. Zu Beginn bietet der Verfasser einen Überblick über die verschiedenen kosmologischen Systeme (Ptolemaios, Kopernikus, Tycho Brahe), geht auf die neuen astronomischen Entdeckungen ein und erläutert die naturphilosophischen Ansichten von der Antike bis auf seine eigene Zeit. Im vierten Teil wird Guerickes berühmtes Modell der Erde, die berühmte Schwefelkugel, behandelt. An ihr entdeckte er eine unkörperliche Kraft, die "elektrische Kraft", womit er die erste Elektrisiermaschine erfunden hatte. Im fünften Kapitel über die Erde und den Mond, findet sich auch die eindrucksvolle Mondkarte, die zuvor in den beiden von Guerickes Verleger Waesberge gedruckten Ausgaben von Athanasius Kirchers Mundus subterraneus erschienen war. Das nach den Präliminarien eingebundene Portrait stellt das einzige von Guericke selbst autorisierte Konterfei des Gelehrten dar. Gestochen wurde es nach dem 1649 entstandenen Gemälde Anselmus van Hulles (1615-1678) durch Cornelius Galle d. J. (1601-1674). Mit Otto von Guericke begann sich bereits die Methode anzubahnen, die in der Folgezeit für die Astronomie von grundsätzlicher Bedeutung wurde, nämlich die Methode des Analogieschlusses. Das nicht erhalten gebliebene ursprüngliche Manuskript, lag zwar bereits 1663 vor, erfuhr dann aber bis zur Drucklegung noch diverse Hinzufügungen und Abänderungen von der Hand Guerickes. Nachdem die langwierigen Verhandlungen mit dem Leidener Drucker Johann Blaeu 1668 erfolglos abgebrochen wurden, nahm Guericke Kontakt zu Johannes Jansson zu Waesberge in Amsterdam auf. Am 31. März unterzeichneten schliesslich beide den Verlagsvertrag, der als Honorar 75 Freiexemplare für den Autor vorsah, fertig gedruckt lag das Werk schliesslich Ende März, Anfang April 1672 vor. - Ein vorzügliches Exemplar.

Houzeau-Lancaster 8775; Dibner 55; Grolier/Horblit 44; Ekelöf 150; Wheeler Gift 170. First edition of one of the greatest books in the history of experimental physics. The Magdeburg engineer and politician presents in his publication both the results and interpretations of his experimental discoveries, themselves a consequence of Guericke's profound Copernican cosmological views on the nature and composition of space. There are certain moments crucial to the process of historical change, during which different paths leading to subsequent events may be taken: Guericke's Experimenta was one such moment. His work on the vacuum pump led to research in [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

ESTC & OCLC together locate copies at a total of 6 libraries in England + 3 in US (viz. Huntington + Chicago + Beinecke) + the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. The Preface is signed 'T.B.', the initials employed by John Eachard. However, the postscript says that the author wrote the Preface in the 'lofty and swaggering style' of T.B. and signed T.B.'s initials to it. But, whoever the author, this is a reply to two of the five letters printed at the end of Mr. Hobbs's state of nature considered> by John Eachard. The author writes with a vivacious and stinging pen, freely using both colourful metaphor and the sharpest of wit. 'Another thing I must tell you of, is, your trivial, low, and sometimes scurrilous and dirty language, as if you did not wash your hands before you went to your book. As if it were a certain sign of ingenious education, to talk of Old folks slaver ... Putting ones head in a pipkin ... Curds and apple sauce ... Broil'd herrings, or a burnt fraize ... Moral rules enough to stop a hollow tooth ... Philosophy and languages, six pence a bushel ... New oysters new ... A pot and a cake ... In spight of your teeth ... Hang your self ... Rogue ... Rascal ... Villain ... Son of a bitch ... Prate they whole gut full, &c.>'

Ashmole"From the library of Thomas Povey (1613/14-c.1705) FRS, Eminent London Colonial Merchant and Politician. Holding a high post in the Office of Plantations for Oliver Cromwell, Povey became Treasurer to the King’s brother post Restoration. He and Elias Ashmole were founder members of the Royal Society, proposing Pepys for membership in 1665."Pepys found him ‘most excellent in anything but business’ (Pepys, 6.215). He was a gentleman of fashion and a ‘nice contriver of all elegancies’ (Evelyn, 4.84). The house in Lincoln's Inn Fields was a marvel: its cabinet work, wine cellar, stables, and pictures, especially the trompe-l'Å“il perspectives, all gained universal admiration. Povey was a generous, if garrulous, host, always ready to retail the latest court gossip and to offer advice on social niceties. He was a connoisseur and collector …he perfectly conforms to the definition of the ‘virtuoso’: intensely curious, interested, as were Evelyn and Pepys, in the ‘rare’ and the ‘wonderful’, a man of taste and discrimination and possessed of the funds to indulge them."

        By The KING. A PROCLAMATION To Restraine the Spreadinge of False News, And Licentious talkinge of matters of state and governement

      [London?] 1672 - Broadsheet. Recto with mss proclamation text; verso docketed, "A true coppy of The Kings proclamation." 15-1/2" x 12-1/4" [39.3 cm x 31 cm]. Coffee houses in 17th C. Britain were a prominent location for the discussion & transmission of news, local and national, or possibly, in the view of some, even seditious utterings, including the hatching of conspiracies and/or treason. Herein, Charles takes issue with "licentious talking" "both publick and private, to censure and defame the Proceedings of State, by speaking evil of things they understand not." "And because all bold and irreverant Speeches touching matters of this high nature are punishable . His Majesty doth further Declare, That he will proceed with all Severity, against all manner of persons who shall use any bold or unlawful Speeches of this nature, or be present at any Coffee-house, or other publick or private meeting where such Speeches are used."The proclamation issued in print by Bill & Barker [Wing C3581; Steele 3570], but during this era the scribal tradition was still flourishing, with separates such as this example freely circulating, often in the maligned coffee-houses [cf. Love. Culture & Commerce of Texts. Scribal Publication in Seventeenth-Century England, pp. 9-22].The mss text duplicates that of the printed version, with the exception of the expected spelling variations, however, the printer's imprint is omitted from this mss copy.Rare in the trade. Stained, four closed tears, small hole in center & some edge rash to right side, with a loss of ~ 20 letters, though not the sense thereof. Binder's (?) stab holes at top. Scribal (?) pinhole lower left. A Good copy of this fragile survivor.

It includes two tables of statutes. The first is chronological, the second is digested by topic. It omits statutes before the time of Edward III because they "are but declaratory and affirmative of the Common Law (as my Lord Cook has observed) and may now by their Antiquity and uninterrupted usage be said to be incorporated into the body of the Common Law, with which the treatise medleth not" (iii). Housed in Shirbirn Castle, the library of the Earls of Macclesfield was one of the finest private libraries in Great Britain.

Avec la table du philosophe cebes. Brussels, François Foppens, 1672. Folio. With engraved illustration on title-page, engraved author?s portrait, 103 engraved emblems by Pierre Daret after Otto Vaenius, and an engraved folding plate. 18th-century gold-tooled tree calf.

      Landwehr, Romanic emblem books, 479; Praz, pp. 402-403 & 523-524. Attractive copy of a splendidly illustrated edition combining Otto Vaenius's Quinti Horatii Flacci Emblemata and Le Roy Sieur de Gomberville's La doctrine des Moeurs, tiree de la philosophie des Stoiques... .. The emblems in the work of De Gomberville had been made by Pierre Daret after Vaenius's emblems, only enlarged and slightly improved upon after the latest fashion. The Brussels publisher had probably acquired Daret's plates, and used them again in the present edition, giving back the authorship to Vaenius, while also retaining De Gomberville's instructive comments. In this perfect combination of Vaenius' educational emblems and Gomberville's moral doctrine based on stoic philosophers and explained for the instruction of youth, the quotations from Horace made into emblems became popular again.With the bookplate of Six van Hillegom on pastedown, and bookplate of Mr. Raye De Breukelerwaert on blank flyleaf. Slightly browned with some marginal thumbing. In very good condition.

        OTTO KEYENS KURTZER ENTWURFF VON NEU-NIEDERLAND UND GUAJANA

      - einander entgegen gesetzt, umb den Unterscheid zwischen warmen und kalten Landen heraus zu brigen, Und zu weisen welche von beyden am füglichsten zu bewohnen, am behendesten an zu bauen und den besten Nutzen geben mögen. Denen Patronen, so da Colonien na zu legen gesonnen als auch denen Personen und Familien die ihr Vaterland zu vergessen sich bey dergleichen Bewölckerung lassen wollen. Aus dem Holländischen ins Hochteutsch versetzt durch T.R.C.S.C.S. Leipzig Im Rtzschischen Buchladen. M. DC. LXXII. [1672]. In 4º (18,5x15 cm). Col: [20], 144, [7] pags. Encadernação tardia inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada. Primeira edição da tradução alemã por Thomas Ritsch, desta comparação entre a Nova Holanda (a colônia holandesa centrada em torno da actual New York) e a Guiana (Suriname). Na paz de Breda, em 1667, a Guiana foi cedida à Holanda e Grã-Bretanha tomou posse de New Amsterdam (agora o leste dos Estados Unidos a partir de Delaware e Rhode Island) em troca dos territórios holandeses das Guianas (Guiana e Suriname). O autor reconhece que a Nova Holanda é em tudo superior à Holandas nas suas potencialidades, mas mostra um interesse na colônia da Guiana, para a qual foi destacado como oficial, e tenta mostrar como a Guiana é superior à Nova Holanda nas vantagens do clima, no solo e nas condições gerais de país mais quente. Quando Keye publicou esta obra em holandês, em 1659, as duas regiões estavam sob controle colonial da Holanda. Porém em 1664 os britânicos conquistaram New Amsterdam e rebatizaram-na New York. O Tratado de Breda 1667 aceitou formalmente a situação existente: controle holandês das Guianas e o controle inglês de Nova Iorque. Embora não explicitamente reconhecido, a presente tradução alemã pode ter sido publicada para convencer os potenciais emigrantes alemães a escolher como destino as Guianas holandesas, em vez das colónias britânicas na América do Norte. First edition of the German translation by Thomas Ritsch, of this comparison between New Netherland (the Dutch Colony centered around New York) and Guyana (Surinam). At the Peace of Breda in 1667, Guyana was ceded to the Netherlands, and Great Britain took possession of New Amsterdam (now the eastern United States from Delaware to Rhode Island) and the Dutch parts of the Guianas (now Guyana and Surinam). 'The author acknowledges that New Netherland is much preferable to the Netherlands; that one can more easily obtain large and independent possessions' but having 'an interest in the colony of Guyana, to which he was attached as an officer, he attempts to show how much Guyana is superior to New Netherland,' by setting forth the advantages of the climate, the soil, and general conditions of the warmer country. When Keye first published his work in Dutch in 1659, both regions were under Dutch colonial control, but in 1664 the British took New Amsterdam and renamed it New York, gaining control over what had been The New Netherlands. The 1667 Treaty of Breda formally accepted the existing situation: Dutch control of most of the Guianas and English control of the New Netherlands. Although not explicitly acknowledged, the present German translation may have been published to convince prospective German emigrants to choose the Dutch Guianas over the British colonies in North America.

      Se vend à Quevilly par Jean Lucas,demeurant à Rouen rue S. Lo, près le Palais, 1672. - In-12 de 24 feuillets non chiffrés (titre, dédicace, avertissement, Bulle, table) 372 pages et un feuillet d'errata. Très bon état intérieur. Plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées, petit accident aux coiffes, un mors fragile avec petit manque de cuir en pied. Ouvrage peu courant. Première édition de cette réponse à l'ouvrage de J.B. Bossuet par Marc-Antoine de La Bastide, diplomate et publiciste français né à Milhau vers 1624, mort en 1704. Issu d'une famille protestante, il se fit par la distinction de son esprit, un zélé protecteur du surintendant Fouquet. Il resta 7 ans à Londres en tant que secrétaire d'ambassade, puis il se livra à des travaux littéraires et à des controverses religieuses qui lui valurent une grande réputation parmi ses coreligionnaires. Les imprimeurs et libraires protestants représentent un tiers des effectifs de la corporation rouennaise. C'est près du temple à Quevilly (construit en 1600-1601) que va se développer un nombre important de libraires huguenots au tout début du XVIIème siècle, ces derniers ayant souvent aussi leur enseigne ou atelier à Rouen. Jean Lucas reçu maître le 8 mai 1655 à seize ans environ, et établi le 15 février 1665, donne au moins jusqu'en 1683, 55 éditions dont 34 se rapportent à la religion réformée et ses controverses doctrinales avec la religion catholique.

(16 ll.), 593 pp., (1 l.), 95 pp., lacking leaf Lll4, the divisional title to the "Poema". *** FIRST EDITION of this biography of the "Apostle of Brazil," an invaluable source of information for the history of Brazil and the earliest Jesuit missions there in the second half of the sixteenth century. The work has long been recognized as very rare. When the centennial of Brazilian independence was being celebrated in 1922, the President of Portugal gave a copy of this work to the President of Brazil; before he could do so, however, a special law had to be passed allowing the volume to be taken out of Portugal. In 1926, Holmes listed it among the rarest books of the Oliveira Lima collection. Borba notes that "copies complete with the portrait are very rare today." The @Catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library comments that this life does not seem to derive wholly from Beretario's 1617 Latin biography, although Backer-Sommervogel stated that all later biographies derived from that one. The second edition of the @Vida appeared only in 1943. Anchieta (1534-1597), known as the "Apostle of Brazil" or the "Thaumatourgos of the New World," was one of the most important figures in sixteenth-century Brazil. He went there in 1553 (see p. 6) and, with 13 others, founded the Jesuit school at Piratininga, later the site of São Paulo (pp. 17-54). There he taught Latin to the Indians and wrote the first grammar and vocabulary in their language, Tupi. In 1563 he and Father Manuel de Nobrega went to Iperoig to negotiate peace with the Tamoyos (pp. 73-98). "It is more than probable that this embassy was the salvation of the Portuguese colonies," writes Southey (I, 228). This biography also provides information on the Indians, on Jesuit missions, on Anchieta's disciples, on the rebellion of the Tamoyos and Tupis, on the French attack on Rio de Janeiro, and on the arrival in 1582 of a 16-vessel Spanish fleet under Diego Florez Valdes that was on its way to secure the Strait of Magellan (pp. 270-74). Pages 443-593 contain Anchieta's 5,786-verse Latin poem "De beata Virgine Dei Matre Maria." Anchieta, while negotiating with the Tamoyos at Iperoig, vowed to write a poem on the Virgin's life in order to keep himself from being tempted by Indian women. Since he had no paper or writing instruments (so the story goes), he traced the verses on the sand and memorized what he had written each day. The poem was first published in Vasconcellos' @Chronica da Companhia de Jesu do Estado do Brasil, 1663, and went through many later editions. The @Vida is beautifully printed by one of Portugal's greatest seventeenth-century typographers. This copy not only has the portrait (often lacking), but has a good impression of it - usually it is very faint. The portrait shows Anchieta surrounded by the wild animals of Brazil: jaguars, snakes, parrots, etc. The paper is thin but nearly opaque; in most copies, it is so thin as to be almost transparent. Simão de Vasconcellos (1596-1671), a native of Porto, grew up in Brazil and became a Jesuit at Bahia, where he later served as vice-rector of the Jesuit College and promoted the construction of what became the cathedral. He had great influence among his contemporaries, making enormous donations to the poor and acting as confessor to viceroys. His @Chronica da Companhia de Jesu do Estado do Brasil, Lisbon 1663, is another fundamental work on sixteenth-century Brazil, as is his @Vida do P. João de Almeida. @Provenance: Joaquim de Sousa-Leão, distinguished Brazilian historian and diplomat of Portuguese ancestry, was a significant book and art collector. He wrote on art and historical subjects, being an expert on the Flemish painter Frans Post: see @Frans Post 1612-1680, Amsterdam: A.L.

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      This celebrated English naval officer joined as a volunteer in 1672 and retired as Admiral of the Fleet in 1705, distinguishing himself with many commands in wars ranging from the Third Anglo-Dutch War in the 1670s to the War of the Spanish Succession in the early 18th century; he is often remembered for destroying the Spanish treasure fleet in the Battle of Vigo Bay in 1702 and for commanding the naval forces that captured Gibraltar in 1704. ALS, 2pp (lettersheet), 5 3/4" X 7", Canterbury, England, n.y. September 29. Addressed to "D[ea]r Madm." Near fine. Faintly age toned. Flowery words of condolence presumably to a daughter of a deceased friend, reading: "As I can never forget the obligations I hv to the Dutchess of Roxborough nor think off her without the uttmost concern so give me Leave to condole with you in the sincerest manner for the Loss off her, that was not only Valluable to her owne family butt to every one that knew her, and though her Death was what we had all reason to feare yett I must confess I had flattered my self with the thought off seeing her again she seamed so chearfull when I saw her Last, butt her Lite had always been such that I believe the thought off her Death was more Terrible to her friends then to her self. I will not trouble yr. Lady[shi]p with any more news then to beg you would not so far give way to this affliction but think if she were capable of conveying her thoughts to you she would desire you to be easy and hapy and as yr. Lady[shi]p is very young so may the remaindr. of yr. Life be as hapy as I wish it...." In a postscript he also mentions his life ("Lady Mary") and "my mother," but since his first and second wives were both named Mary this only dates this undated letter to the 1684 to 1702 period, likely the latter period. Docket on verso indicates this letter was later returned to the third Mrs. Rooke, Catherine Knatchbull, who the admiral married in 1706: "Lady Rooke / Receiv'd Oct.r ye 2d / 1718." This scarce letter is accompanied by a superb 5¼" X 7¼" stipple-point engraving of Rooke, a head-and-shoulders portrait of him later in life wearing armor, published by Edward Harding in London in 1799. Also present is a handwritten page of biographical notes about Rooke and two other 17th century English notables penned by an unknown 19th century collector.

        Leeuwekaart - Wilhelm Serlin, 1672.

      LEEUWEKAART VAN DE XVII PROVINCIËN"Geographischer Löwe vorstellend die gesammte XVII Niederländische Provintzien sammt einer kurtzen Beschreib[ung] und Abtheilung derselbigen wie viele Städte und Dörfer im einer jeden zu finden'. Kopergravure uitgegeven in Frankfurt am Main door Wilhelm Serlin, 1672. Afm. (voorstelling): 29,4 x 29,9 cm (incl. tekst 41 x 30,5 cm.)De Nederlandse leeuw is een begrip. Het dier staat symbool voor de kracht en moed van het land. De leeuw speelt een belangrijke rol bij voetbal in onze tegenwoordige tijd, maar de verbeelding van Nederland als leeuw werd geïntroduceerd in moeilijke tijden, aan het eind van de 16de eeuw. Vanaf het midden van de Opstand tegen de Spanjaarden, stonden de Nederlanden model voor een reeks leeuwekaarten die op de markt kwamen.De leeuwekaart fungeerde niet alleen als nuttige landkaart, maar werd als statement vaak aan de wand gehangen. Een uiting van actief beleefd burgerschap, van trots, van zelfbewustzijn en diende in een handelskantoor of overheidsgebouw vaak als spectaculair visitekaartje.Deze zeldzame Duitstalige uitgave van deze leeuwekaart werd uitgegeven als los blad in de Holländischer Merkurius, een 'almanak", een soort voorloper van onze huidige nieuwsbladen en kranten. Uitgever Serlin liet voor zijn kaart de leeuwekaart die hij had gezien in de Franstalige Le Mercure Holandois nagraveren. Een bijbehorend blad met een voorstelling van Lodewijk XIV, zijn broer en zoon te paard wijzend naar de kaart, nam Serlin elders in zijn almanak op.Prijs: € 4.250,- (incl. lijst).
