1672. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1672 Barlaam & Josaphat Martyrs Buddha John of Damascus Buddhism Christian Arab VERY Rare with 9 INCREDIBLE Woodcut Illustrations Saint John of Damascus (c. 675 - 749) was a Syrian monk and priest. Born and raised in Damascus, he died at his monastery, Mar Saba, near Jerusalem. Barlaam and Josaphat (Latin: Barlamus et Iosaphatus) are two legendary Christian martyrs and saints, their story probably based ultimately on the life of the Buddha. It tells how an Indian king persecuted the Christian Church in his realm. When astrologers predicted that his own son would someday become a Christian, the king imprisoned the young prince Josaphat, who nevertheless met the hermit Saint Barlaam and converted to Christianity.

Vincenzo Maria di Santa Caterina da Siena
Rome Nella Stamperia di Filippomaria Mancini, 1672. First edition. Folio (31.5 x 21.5 cm), pp.[xxii], 482, [18, index], [1, errata], [1, blank], [1, register], [1, blank]. A very good copy bound in modern half calf,with half-title but without frontispiece. Text-block browned in parts; a handful of small marginal holes. Stamps of the Propaganda Fide to title. The first hand account of Vincenzo Maria di Santa Caterina da Siena (1626-1679), the Carmelite secretary to a mission sent by the Propaganda Fide to resolve the controversy between local St. Thomas Christians and the Jesuit ecclesiastical leadership in Malabar. The St. Thomas Christians had come into communion with Rome in 1599, but the subsequent Catholic suppression of their Syriac rites and texts inflamed tensions and fed an increasing hostility to the Catholic Portuguese hierarchy. Vincenzo departed from Naples early in 1656, and reached India, via the overland route from Aleppo to Surat, in 1657, remaining there through 1658, and returning to Europe via the overland route in 1659. In Donald Lach's assessment, his Viaggio is both "original and perceptive" and "far more informative on India than the other European publications which grew out of the St Thomas controversy": in short, one of the "indispensable sources" for the period. The political challenges of the Carmelite mission meant that Vincenzo and his companions avoided the port cities where the influence of the Portuguese and the Jesuits was greatest, and relied on other informants and guides, spending much of their time in the interior. His narrative include … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WALDENSIANS].
Bibliografia Valdese 1672; STCN (1 copy); Tiele, Pamfletten 5035; WorldCat (3 copies); not in Knuttel. Rare copy of a pamphlet on the massacre of the Waldensians in Piedmont in 1655. It is probably a second edition as the title-pages mentions: "Jouxte la copie impriméé à Haerlem 1663", though no copies from this previous Haarlem edition are known. The Waldensians are a Christian movement with its origins in the later Middle Ages in France and they were persecuted as heretics from the 12th century onwards. From the early 17th century they were considered as early forerunners of the Reformation. In 1655 the Duke of Savoy commanded the Waldensians of Piedmont to attend Mass or leave in 20 days. The remaining Waldensians were massacred, causing indignation throughout Europe.Some waterstains in the upper margins; wrappers with slightly rubbed edges and spine restored with cello tape. Otherwise a good copy of this rare pamphlet on the Piedmont massacre.

Ercker, Lazarus.
Frankfurt, Johann David Zunner, 1672-1673 1672-1673. Two parts in one volume, small folio (315x195 mm). Each part has its own title. [12], 332, [4]; [4], 47 pp. Engraved title by P. Rilian (dated 1673), 41 large woodcut illustrations. Bound in old vellum from an antiphonal, evenly browned throughout, final leaf partially detached. Rare first edition of the enlarged edition of Ercker?s Beschreibung. The 41 wood-engraved plates, half or nearly full-page, show chemical apparatus and processes, furnaces, and mines. ?Ercker, along with Agricola and Biringuccio, was the chief spokesman in printed form for most of the metallurgical knowledge of the sixteenth century and his includence on later assaying literature was enourmous. Working as chief inspector of the mines in Bohemia under Emperor Rudolf ii, he systematically reviewed the methods of testing alloys and minerals, supervised smelting operations, and wrote with extraordinary clarify of the apparatus and operations involved? (Hoover Collection 283). ?Considering the importance of Ercker?s treatise it is remarkable how little is on record about him [?] His book was highly prized at the time, for it was a record of practical experience, and was not burdened with theories and hypotheses. The first edition was printed by Georg Schwartz at Prague, 1574, in folio. The work was enlarged and entitled Aula Subterranea, and published in 1672? (Ferguson). Dibner called Ercker?s works second only to Agricola?s in the ?beauty of the graphic treatment of the crafts? The second part contains the Interpres phraseologiae metallurgicae.

HOOGHE, Romeyn de.
1672. Knuttel 10703; Landwehr, De Hooghe Etcher, p. 66; Muller, Historieplaten 2445a. Broadsheet concerning the siege and recapturing on 30 December 1672 of the city Coevorden. In July 1672, the garrisons of Christoph Bernhard von Galen (1606-1678), bishop of Münster, had sieged and captured the city. As his troops sacked the city, many inhabitants left for Groningen and surrounding towns. Among them a teacher, Mijndert van der Thijnen, who went to the lieutenant-general Carl von Rabenhaupt (1602-1675), commander of Groningen, and requested the retake of Coevorden. Van der Thijnen drew a map of the city which showed Von Rabenhaupt how to successfully siege the city. In December Von Rabenhaupt left for Coevorden, and recaptured the city within an hour. The text gives a brief description of the siege, and ends with a small overview of the prisoners and loot they took. The engraved illustration, showing the siege of Coevorden, is engraved by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), the most significant and prolific printmaker of the late Dutch Golden Age. His work displays the political grandeur and disasters of war in the Dutch Republic, including the disastrous year 1672, depicted dramatically and with great splendour. Margins thumbed and slightly smudged, some faint folding lines and a small marginal chip on the major folding line. With four small adhesive pieces on the back. A very good copy.

FRANZINI, Girolamo
In Roma, per il sue. 1672. 1672 Marvelous Antiquities of ROME Franzini Illustrated Colossus of Rhodes RUINS Girolamo Franzini was a 16th-century Italian historian known for his accounts of the antiquities of Rome. In 1588, Pope Sixtus V announced the first of four special holy years in Rome and was thus the destination for many travelers. Franzini published a work that would help those arriving in Rome to understand the antiquities of the city. First published, oddly, in Venice the same year, ‘The Marvelous Things of the city of Rome’ became one of several works to explore the antiquities of Rome during that time. However, Franzini featured the work of Andrea Palladio whose ‘Antiquity of Rome’ included engravings that enriched the first and all subsequent editions of Franzini’s work. According to Brach, the illustrations in this work were constantly used to illustrated travel guides of Rome for over 150 years! ‘Marvelous Things’ was the first true city guide of Rome. It would undergo numerous editions and edits until the end of the 17th-century. This 1672 edition was published in Rome and features the 50 incredible woodcuts that were first seen in the 16th-century versions. These illustrations depict ancient ruins, temples, mythological figures, and a fascinating illustration of the Colossus of Rhodes! An impressive work!

Grew, Nehemiah
London: Printed for Spencer Hickman, 1672. First Edition. Contemporary calf binding with later red morocco spine label, handsomely rebacked. Octavo measuring 90 x 160 mm (pages). Collates: (32), 186 (mispaginated 198 as reported by ESTC), (22) pages with 3 folding engraved plates at rear: complete, including the rare license leaf before the title. Internally an exceptionally clean copy, and noticeably larger than other copies that have recently come to market. A forefather in the field of plant anatomy, Grew was the first to explore how plants develop organs and tissues, and in what ways they reproduce. His work The Anatomy of Vegetables was a particular point of pride, and soon after its release he presented four copies to the Royal Society; and it resulted in his election as a fellow in 1673. Considered an important botanical work that "proclaimed new truths or hypotheses in science" (Dibner), Grew himself seemed to understand that he was breaking entirely new ground. "Of what antiquity the Anatomy of Animals is, and how great have been its Improvements of later years is well known. That of Vegetables is a subject matter which from all ages to this day hath not only lain uncultivated; but for ought I know, except some observations from our country-men, hath not been so much as thought upon." Grew's text sets out as a corrective, and from it has sprung a diverse and important field of scientific inquiry. ESTC R30321. Wing G1946. Welcome III 164. Dibner Heralds of Science 21.

TORRE FARFÁN, Fernando de la (1608-1677)
widow of Nicolas Rodriguez, 1671 [1672]. Folio (292 x 205 mm). Etched frontispiece by Mathias Arteaga after Fr. de Herrera, etched portrait of Ferdinand III by Arteaga after Murillo, portrait of Charles II of Spain by Herrera, 9 etched plates of emblematic devices by Francisco de Arteaga, Lucas Valdes and Luisa Morales, 9 etched folding views and plans of and in the church at Seville by the Arteagas and Juan de Valdes Leal. 18th-century Spanish mottled calf. A few small scuffs to binding; six folding plates with old repairs to tears crossing images, a very occasional pale dampstain at end. Provenance: pale indistinct inkstamp on title; purchased from Paul and Marianne Gourary, 1964. FIRST EDITION: "the best illustrated Iberian book, by all odds, contained in the Harvard Collection" (Hofer). Celebrating Ferdinand III's (1199-1252) canonization by Pope Clement X, the work was commissioned by the Cathedral of Seville, and the text written by the poet, chronicler and translator Fernando de la Torre Farfán. Illustrating his text and documenting the elaborate festivities were the best Seville artists of the age. The 1671 procession followed the Corpus Christi model, with bell-ringing, fireworks, and lavish street adornment. "The volume is interesting not only as a curious piece of local history, but as being illustrated wholly by artists of Seville. The Triunfo and the other decorations, in the heavy overloaded style of the day, were designed and executed under the direction of the painter, Juan de Valdés Leal (1630-1690), and the sculptor, Bernardo Simon de Pineda, the former hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

(5f). Veau brun, dos à 5 nerfs orné. Très grande quantité d'illustrations en taille-douce et une planche dépliante. Guillaume du Choul est né vers 1496 dans une famille d'hommes de loi lyonnais. Cet ouvrage réunit les trois plus célèbres textes de Guillaume du Choul (La Religion, La Castramétation et Les Bains). Le discours sur la Religion est en fait un long texte sur les médailles ou les monuments observés tout au long de sa carrière d'antiquaire. En effet, il fut l'un des premiers français qui s'appliquèrent à l'étude des médailles, des pierres gravées et autres monuments de l'antiquité. Son discours sur la Religion est un prétexte pour présenter et expliquer les symboles de médailles et de monuments qu'il avait recueillis ou observés. (Baudrier IX, 229; Brunet II, 858). Pour information, la castramétation est un terme militaire antique utilisé dans le glossaire technique de l'archéologie, désignant l'art de choisir et de disposer l'emplacement d'un camp ou d'une place forte. Il s'agit là dun ouvrage plutôt rare, car complet de ses gravures. Il faut signaler toutefois des erreurs dans l'ordre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Literae nomine is a surreptitious publication of dispatches written by Milton in his capacity of Latin secretary to the Council of State, between the years 1649 and 1659. First published in 1676 under title : Literae pseudo-senatus anglicani, Cromwellii.;The Epistolæ Obscurorum Virorum (English: Letters of Obscure Men) was a celebrated collection of satirical Latin letters which appeared 1515-1519 in Hagenau, Germany. They support the German Humanist scholar Johann Reuchlin and they mock the doctrines and modes of living of the scholastics and monks, mainly by pretending to be letters from fanatic Christian theologians discussing whether all Jewish books should be burned as un-Christian or not. The book was banned in many places, and in regard of the rise of Martin Luther's Protestant Reformation, Pope Leo X excommunicated the authors, readers, and disseminators of the Epistolæ Obscurorum Virorum in 1517, by citing the fact that the discussed matter of burning all Jewish books, especially the Talmud, had never been held as a majority view among Christian scholars.

This latter is omitted from later issues with 40 maps only. The text includes a short history of the origin and growth of navigation. Koeman IV Goos 10, Goos was "one of the best known maritime booksellers of Amsterdam" (Koeman), and responsible for publishing a number of different sea-atlases or pilots. His background was more as an engraver - his father Abraham was also a skilled engraver. Unlike Doncker and his other contemporaries, Pieter Goos's intention was less to produce a functional sea-atlas but more a visually appealing volume to be consulted in a library environment - hence the emphasis on the title-page on the utility of the atlas to "Heeren en Kooplieden" (gentlemen and merchants) in advance of "Schippers en Stuurlieden" (pilots and seamen). The standard form of the index calls for forty charts, but the Zee-Atlas was also available with forty-one charts, and indivudual examples of the various editions can be found with an additional chart, as here, which is the most desirable of the charts in the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. First edition. First edition of this book "of prime importance in electrical discovery, air-pressure and the vacuum pump." The Experimenta nova (1672) ranks next to Gilbert's De magnete (1611) in the number and importance of electrical discoveries described" (Sparrow). ❧Dibner, Heralds of Science 55; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science 30; Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science 44; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 90; Norman 952. "Otto von Guericke, German natural philosopher, produced what had been sought since antiquity-the vacuum. Inspired by the findings of Galileo, Pascal, and Torricelli, he conducted Magdeburg hemisphere experiments. By means of an air pump, he extracted the air from two hemispheres of copper which had been securely sealed and demonstrated that even sixteen horses pulling in opposite directions could not separate them. Experimenta nova (ut vocantu) Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio (1672) ranks next to Gilbert's [De magnete, 1611] in the number and importance of electrical discoveries described, for von Guericke was also an investigator in this field. He invented a machine by which he demonstrated the existence of electrical repulsions as well as electrical attractions." "Guericke's invention of the air pump grew out of his interest in the nature of space, particularly in Descartes's belief in the equivalence of space and matter and denial of the possibility of vacuum. Guericke suspected otherwise, and, after several false starts, managed to construct a hollow apparatus fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Augustinus, Antonius [or AgustÃn, Antonio] revised by Baluzius, Stephanus.
Parisiis : excudebat Franciscus Muguetus, 1672. pp: [56],660; title-page woodcut device; a few head and tail pieces and ornate initial letters; 12mo (116mm X 177mm). Probable contemporary binding, though full leather binding has fallen away, leaving boards fully exposed. Leather from front board still present, but exists as a separate piece and is yapped with corner and border tooled decorations. Text-block has red-speckled edges. Boards however, are sturdy and securely held by their chords, and text block is also sturdy too. Leaves are clean and crisp leaves - a few turned corners - and while the text-block has been trimmed, the lower and fore-edges still have generous margins, and upper edge has been trimmed to approx. 10mm. Scarce. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
