        Receuïl de lions dessinés d'apres nature par Rembrandt et B. Picart qui les a gravés en 1728.[Paris?, ca. 1742] (engraved 1728). Oblong 8vo (12.5 x 19 cm). With 11 (of 12) prints in a series numbered F1-F12 (plate size 7 x 11 cm), all engraved by Bernard Picart after drawings made by himself (1-3, from life), Rembrandt (5-11) and Paulus Potter (12). Lacking print F4 (drawn by Picart) Separate leaves, side stitched through 2 holes.

      Cf. Cat. Rijksmuseum I, p. 160; (search on "lions"); Thieme-Becker 26, 572. Beautiful and refined print series engraved by Bernard Picart (Le Romain, Paris 1673 - Amsterdam 1733), a leading artist-engraver of his day, each print depicting a lion standing, reclining or eating, after drawings or prints by Rembrandt (7), Paulus Potter (1) and Bernard Picart himself (3 of 4). Picart's are explicitly described as "ad vivam del." (drawn from life). Picart was a celebrated French artist who came to Holland in 1710 where he lived and worked in Amsterdam from 1711 to his death in 1733. He was a pupil of his father and he worked in Paris together with F. Chéreau. The title-print explicitly says Picart engraved the series in 1728, and the presence of the title on print F1 suggests that the series was issued on its own, perhaps originally without the letter F for the series. Picart himself also published it in a larger series the following year, with a letterpress title-page (Recueil de lions ... Divisé en six livres chacun de six feuilles) bearing a 1729 Amsterdam imprint, a 6-page letterpress "avis", an additional title-print also dated 1729 and giving the place of publication as Amsterdam, and 42 prints on 36 leaves (A1-6, B1-6, C1-6, D1-6, E1-6, F1-12, the F series with 2 prints on each leaf). The present copy is printed on French paper, with only small pieces of the watermark and countermark visible (diifficult to identify) but with a clear watermark date "1742" visible in several leaves. Though French papermakers continued to use the date 1742 for a few years, it gives a fairly close date for the present printing.With a contemporary owner's name on the back of the last print: Paul Dau. Lacking print 4 and with some spots and a minor water stain in print 1, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. Picart's lion engravings, including 7 after Rembrandt.

For raising the rents of lands. In order whereunto, it is proved necessary, I. That a stop be put to further buildings in and about London. II. That the gentry be obliged to live some part of the year in the countrey. III. That registers be setled in every county. IV. That an Act for naturalizing all foreign Protestants, and indulging them, and His Majestie's subjects at home, in matters of conscience, may be passed. V. That the Act prohibiting the importation of Irish cattel, may be repealed. VI. That brandy, coffee, mum, tea, and chocolata, may be prohibited.

Very scarce. Wing G.1491. Goldsmiths 2026. Kress 1338. Massie 905. A veritable manifesto touching on most of the social and economic issues of the day, some of the author's proposals being controversial to say the least, others close to revolutionary. Although the author's purpose was revenue-raising for the crown, the amount of detail contained in this set of proposals makes this perhaps one of the best published portraits of life just after the Restoration, particularly in respect of wages, prices, living and travel costs and so forth. For some comments by a modern scholar, see, e.g. Joyce Appleby's Economic thought and ideology in 17th century England> (1978), pp.146, 189 & 215.

        Decimus Junius Juvenalis, and Aulus Persius Flaccus translated and illustrated, as well with sculpture as notes By Barten Holyday

      Oxford: W. Downing for F. Oxlad Senior, J. Adams, and F. Oxlad Junior, 1673. Hardcover. First Barten Holyday translation of Juvenal. Folio. pp. [12], 341, [3]. Including 49 engraved illustrations with the notes and 4 fold out plates. The first title page is printed in red and black. The ?"Satyres of Flaccus?" contains a separate title [Oo3]. Oddly, the notes or ?"illustrations to the first satyre?" appear on p. 82 following the fifth satire and its accompanying notes. The pages in signatures P and Q are bound out of order, but all is accounted for. No vertical half-title is present on the last leaf. Bound in full period calf (showing rubbing and wear) with blind stamped panels on the front and rear covers. Spine head and tail caps are neatly restored. An armorial bookplate (dated 1810) is pasted on the inside front cover. Interior pages are generally clean with occasional light marginal spotting. Barten Holyday?'s English translation of Persius Flaccus was first published in 1616. However, his translation of Juvenal was only published posthumously (1673) by his step-son William Dewey along with a reissue of the Persius translation. Holyday produced an almost literal translation of Juvenal?'s works. The English poet John Dryden praised Holyday (in a backhanded way) for the accuracy of his work while at the same time criticizing him for his inability to capture Juvenal?'s poetic voice. The extensive commentaries, however, contain much scholarly information. The engraved illustrations depict various classical scenes, artifacts and architecture. Decimus Junius Juvenalis was a Roman poet and satirist writing at the dawn of the second century c.e. His 16 satires mock the corruption, licentiousness, crime and greed of Roman society in his day. Aulus Persius Flaccus was a Stoic satirist of the first century c.e. who?'s satires are known to have contained veiled and unflattering references to the Roman emperor Nero.

        Decimus Junius Juvenalis, and Aulus Persius Flaccus, Translated and Illustrated, As well with Sculpture as Notes

      Oxford: Printed by W. Downing for F. Oxlad, Senior, J. Adams, and F. Oxlad, Junior, 1673. First combined edition in English . Small folio, [12], 341, & [3] pp. (including the final leaf with longitudinal title on verso), plus engraved folding map & 3 engraved plates (one folding), with numerous woodcut and engraved text illustrations. Contemporary calf rebacked at a later date (mid 19th century?), preserving original gilt-lettered maroon morocco spine label. Binding well worn: both boards detached, quite rubbed & scuffed, with shallow loss at the base of the spine. Bookplates of John Wingfield Larking & F.H. Bulis at the front pastedown, bookplate of D. L. James (designed & initialled by English artist & occultist, Austin Osman Spare) at front free endpaper & rear pastedown, pp. 291/292 (P 2) bound out of place (following pp. 294), one leaf (T 3) with small loss in the upper margin, light small stain in the upper margin diminishing through p. 29, occasional modest foxing, moderate toning mostly in the margins, still an internally attractive example which would benefit from the attentions of a binder. Beautifully printed & illustrated, the primary title page in red & black, Juvenal provides a vital source for the study of ancient Rome, particularly if one enjoys poetry in dactylic hexameter. Although continuously paginated, "Aulus Persius Flaccus, His Satyres" has a separate title page, albeit printed in black only. The satires, imbued with a "stoic wisdom and a strong criticism for the abuses of his contemporaries," are preceded by a biography by the translator. Wing J1276.

        The description and use of two arithmetick instruments. Together with a short treatise, explaining and demonstrating the ordinary operations of arithmetick. As likewise, a perpetual almanack, and several useful tables. Presented to His most excellent Majesty Charles II. King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, &c.

      London: printed, and are to be sold by Moses Pitt, 1673 - Small octavo (143 × 90 mm). Modern period-style sheep by Bernard Middleton, double gilt rules, red morocco spine label, marbled From the library of French mathematician Michel Chasles (1793-1880), with the original front wrapper of his binding bound in at the front, with "S. Morland 1673" on the recto in Chasles's hand and his bookplate on the verso, above a note of acquisition in another hand "acheté a la vente Chasles samedi 9 juillet 1881". Occasional browning and spotting, old repaired tear on B4 affecting a few letters but not the sense. Frontispiece portrait of the author, with added title page [A2] dated 1672 (A new, and most useful instrument for addition and substraction of pounds, shillings, pence, and farthings); collates A-F8 (-F8) G8 (-G8) A-B8 *8. With 6 engraved plates printed on versos of first A2-6 and 4 folding engraved plates pasted to the versos of A8 and B1-3, folding letterpress table bound between G2 and G3, tables in the text. First edition of the first book in English on a mechanical calculating machine, and the first separate work on the subject since Napier's Rabdologiae (1617). Nothing more of any significance was published in English on calculating machines until Babbage in the nineteenth century. Morland (1625-1695) was at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he tutored an unimpressed Samuel Pepys, before accompanying an embassy in 1653 to the court of Queen Kristina of Sweden, a noted patron of the sciences. It is here that Morland most likely became acquainted with Pascal's calculating machine (Pascal had presented an example to Kristina in 1649). The first of the two "arithmetick instruments" described here is Morland's adding machine, a modification of Pascal's calculator: "A compact little apparatus made in brass 4 in by 3 in and less than ¼ in thick, consisting of two sets of wheelworks, divided and numbered, with a counting disc, addition effected by turning the wheels clockwise, and subtraction by turning them anti-clockwise". This survives in a few examples in museums. The second instrument was his multiplier, which is illustrated in the second series of plates. This operated on the same principle as Napier's bones, except that the rods now became wheels. The machine also served for the extraction of square, cube and square-square roots. One surviving example of this known in a museum in Florence. Morland also invented a perpetual almanac, which forms an addendum to this book. Morland's ingenious inventions earned him the patronage of Charles II, who gave him the title of "Master of Mechanicks" in 1681. The book is unusually complex and unstable in make-up, with the plates either printed directly or some plates printed as illustrations and cut out and pasted in place. Our copy has a full complement of plates and text leaves, except for the cancels G8 and F8. All copies apparently lack the cancel G8, and the majority lack the cancel F8. The Macclesfield copy had F8 present but lacked the first four leaves of 2A. Origins of Cyberspace 9 (lacking F8); Taylor 358; Wing M2777.

        Entretiens sur la philosophie

      S.l.: s.n., 1673. EARLY EDITION. 12mo. [2], 54, 159 pp. Bound in contemporary French calf (joints and extremities rubbed, hinges cracked and quite tender). In good antiquarian condition, completely unsophisticated. Preserved in a brown cloth protective case Early edition, printed anonymously, of this defense of Cartesian doctrine on transubstantiation and the animal-machine, written by the leading contemporary advocate and teacher of Descartes's natural philosophy. Jacques Rohault (1618-1672), a native of Amiens, was a member of libertine circles in Paris, including that of Cyrano de Bergerac; he was also a friend of Moliere. Defender of Cartesianism, a teacher of mathematics, he exerted tremendous literary and scientific influence through his "public lectures" that he gave in his home once a week. In his last years Rohault was troubled by the political reaction to Cartesianism in France. In his work, "Entretiens sur la philosophie" (first printed in 1671), Rohault tried to establish the importance of Cartesian interpretations to theology. His "Entretiens sur la philosophie" is "essentially a defense of Descartes, dealing with controversial topics such as the relation between Descartes and Aristotle, Descartes' interpretation of the Eucharist and Descartes' ideas on the animal soul." (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 342). The work was published without Rohault's consent from one of the copies then circulating "in secret" -- (see Dennis Des Chene, "Cartesian Science: Regis and Rohault" in: A Companion to Early Modern Philosophy, 2008). Of the first edition of 1671, OCLC lists only four copies in the U.S. (Stanford, Univ. Illinois, Univ. Michigan, and Queens College). This is the anonymous printing of 1673, is even rarer than the first, with NO copies in the U.S., and only two copies worldwide: National Library of Sweden and the Historische Bibliothek der Stadt Rastatt. The present 1673 edition is distinguished by the inclusion of a 54-page "Discours sur les sujets traites dans les Entretiens" which is not present in the first edition. Unsigned, this contemporary discourse is a masterful exposition of Rohault's work. It has never been reprinted in any form. This is the ONLY copy of the "Entretiens" currently on the market; and ABPC lists NO copy at auction since 1978. PROVENANCE: the Sunderland copy (sale of the Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, Puttick & Simpson, 1882, Fourth Portion, lot 10731) -- subsequently in the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut (blind-stamps).

Einsidlischer Raht, und geweßnen Ober-Vogt der Herrschaft Gachnang.

      Zu Zug Getruckt, Bey Jacob Ammon, Im Jahr 1673.. Kl.-8° (15.3 x 9.3 cm). Unpaginiert (152 Bll. + 6 Bll. Anhang mit gest. Musiknoten). Gest. allegor. Front. (etwas gebräunt u. knapp beschnitten, obere Aussenecke mit kleiner Wurmspur), 1 gest. (Falt-) Tafel (rechte, wohl gegengleiche Hälfte fehlt), etwas gest. Buchschmuck. Einfacher HLn.-Einband (Vorderdeckel marginal etwas berieben) um 1900 mit Kleisterpapierbezug. Erste Ausgabe. Seiten gebräunt, eher wenig fleckig, stellenweise unterschiedliche Feuchtigkeitsspuren (Ränder; eher blass und wenig störend, Notenanhang jedoch mehr), einige Lagen im Fussbereich gegen die Bundstege zu mit unterschiedlichen kleineren Wurmspuren (Text kaum störend tangiert). Alters-, Lagerungs- und Gebrauchsspuren, alte u. ältere Besitzervermerke a. Vorsatz u. vord. OFl.Bl, Besitzerstempel d. 20. Jhs. a. neuem fl.B. Gesamthaft sehr ordentliches, relativ gepflegtes Exemplar.. VD17 23:267317N - 1701 und 1702 erschienen bei Franz Leonz Schäll in Zug bzw. Gottfried Hautt Wwe. in Luzern zwei weitere Auflagen. - Der Autor ist nicht zu verwechseln mit dem Verfasser u.a. einer beachtlichen Biographie von Nikolaus von Flüe, Joseph Anton Weissenbach (1734-1801). - Besitzervermerk od. Widmung: 1. (auf OFl.Bl.) 'Herrn Stadtschreiber Uttiger in Zug empfiehlt sich zu freundlichem Andenken Dr. Rosset von Wiesbaden, Zug den 3. August 1854'; 2. (Stempel) 'Alb. Utinger-Speck 40 Bahnhofstr. Zug', i.e. Albert Uttinger od. Utinger (Zug 1855-1936 ibid.), kath., von Zug. 1881-83 Hotelier auf dem Zugerberg, 1884 Übernahme des renommierten Hotels Löwen in Zug von seinem Vater. In div. politischen und wirtschaftlichen Ämtern tätig (u.a. Wasserversorgung bzw. Wasserwerke Zug, Glühlampenfabrik in Zug). Utinger projektierte das erste, 1891 in Betrieb genommene Elektrizitätswerk im Lorzentobel und wirkte in den schweizerischen Verbänden der Elektrowirtschaft als Experte. (HLS). 3. (Vorsatzspiegel): krakelige, wenig geübte und dadurch kaum entzifferbare ca. 15-zeilige Handschrift um 1800, schliessend "zuo zug den [?] october (?) [1804?]". - Front. und Tafelfragment sind monogrammiert C.M., i.e. wohl Conrad Meyer (Zürich 1618- 1689 ibid.; vgl. u.a. SIKART). Das Frontispiz in Kupferradierung zeigt in zeittypisch verquickter Komposition Tells Apfelschuss, überhöht von einer Banderole mit Inschrift 'Numini et Lumini', darüber eine Gestalt in römischer Rüstung mit Füllhorn, im Vordergrund unten links ein nobler Herr mit gezogenem Hut (Gessler?), davor über liegender Drehleier Banderole mit Inschrift 'Glück zuo'. Die hälftige Tafel mit einer von Trägerfiguren gestützten Arkade stellt wohl eine Freilicht-Teaterszenerie dar. - Die Musiknoten (5 Linien) im Anhang mit Gesangstexten stehen unter dem Titel 'Chor, Lessi, et Cantiones Comoediae, 1672'. - Anschliessend an das detaillierte 8seitige Inhaltsverzeichnis ('Compendium') werden die Rolleninhaber (Akteure) namentlich aufgelistet (7 SS.): 'Begriff aller Herren Actoren sambt dero Stellen, nach dem Alphabet [der Vornamen]', von Beat Lazarus Kolin (u.a. als 'Vogt Grydler') bis zu Wolfgang Damian Müller ('Florae Garten Dienst') und Zacharias Wickhart [Wickart] als 'Soldat'. Tout-Zug scheint zum Einsatz gekommen zu sein: selbst 'Seckelmeister Melchior Brandenberg' hatte seine Auftritte u.a. als Werner Stauffacher. Die Aufführung war in jeder Hinsicht eine exklusive Männerangelegenheit. Die Damenwelt blieb im Prinzip sowohl von den Dramatis personae als auch von der Zuger Weiblichkeit her unberücksichtigt. In unumgänglichen Fällen übernahmen männliche Zuger die schwierige Aufgabe (z.B. Niclaus Wickhart u.a. als Annelin, Graecia und 'Zwingheris Eheweib', Carl Martin Kayser [ev. Keiser] u.a. als Justitia, und Carl Noe Düggelin u.a. als 'Meer-Fraewlein'). - "Zug hat eine alte Theatertradition: Schüleraufführungen im Zeughaus oder in der Zimmerhütte, wandernde Schauspieler, die sich auf primitiven kleinen Bühnen produzieren, Volkstheater unter freiem Himmel. Am 14. und 15. September 1672 wird auf dem Kolinplatz mit größtem Aufwand und Pomp vor über 3000 Zuschauern das 'Eydgnössische Contrafeth' des Zugers Johann Kaspar Weissenbach gesungen und gespielt; die halbe Stadt wirkt mit." ( ). -- "[Seine] Gipfelleistung erlebte [auf Schweizer Boden] das Barocktheater im Werk des Zugers Johann Kaspar Weissenbach [..]. [..] Stoff des Stückes ist am ersten Spieltag der Aufstieg der Eidgenossenschaft von der Gründung bis zu den Burgunderkriegen, am zweiten der Abstieg seit der Glaubensspaltung bis zu Weissenbachs Gegenwart; sein Thema dagegen ist der Urgedanke der Schweizer Geschichte, Freiheit und Einheit, und dessen Wandel im Lauf der Zeiten; diesen Sinn schaubar zu machen, reihte der Dichter historische Szenen aneinander und erfüllte sie mit dem Geist der Volksherrschaft." (Salzer/Tunk I, 3. Aufl. 1972, p. 416). - "Lassen die ersten beiden Akte die ideale Schau des eidgenössischen Gemeinwesens in der Entstehungsgeschichte bis zum dreizehnörtigen Bund lebendig werden, so erlebt Helvetia im dritten Akt den leisen Einzug des Ungemachs. [..] Der vierte und fünfte Akt zeigen dann die Wirkung der drei falschen Tellen; Atheismus (Reformation), Interesse (Pensionenwesen) und Politicus (adeliges Stadtregiment) vertreiben Justitia mit ihren Töchtern Wahrheit, Einigkeit und Glückseligkeit. Helvetia erkrankt, schläft vor Schwäche, während in der Analyse des Untergangs antiker Gemeinwesen das Schicksal der Eidgenossenschaft prophezeit wird [..]. [..] Den Schluss des Stückes bildet das Erwachen der Rekonvaleszentin Helvetia [..]; der Bogen wird zurück in die Gegenwart der Eidgenossenschaft geschlagen durch den Auftritt des Bruder Klaus, der zwischen Helvetia und Gott vermittelt. Im abschliessenden Festgetümmel erfährt man noch den Grund zur Hoffnung auf die Gesundung Helvetias: 1669 ist Nikolaus von der Flüe selig gesprochen worden. Das 'Eydgenösische [sic] Contrafeth' stellt nun kein Tellenspiel dar [..]; gleichwohl besitzt es für die theatralische Vermittlung des Tell-Mythos grosse Bedeutung." (etc.; I. Schmidt, Wilhelm Tell in der politischen Kultur der alten Eidgenossenschaft in der frühen Neuzeit. Schriftliche MA-Hausarbeit Universität Kiel 1998, p. 95 f.). -- Johann Caspar Weissenbach (Zug 1633-1678 ibid.), kath., von Zug. Ausbildung in der Kanzlei des Klosters Einsiedeln und im Jesuitenkolleg Solothurn. Weissenbach trat in den Dienst des Klosters Einsiedeln und wirkte 13 Jahre als Obervogt des Klosters in der thurgauischen Vogtei Gachnang. Nach dem Tod des Vaters liess er sich 1668 in Zug nieder und widmete sich v.a. der Dichtung und dem Theater. [..]. Am bedeutendsten ist sein vom Jesuitentheater beeinflusstes, teils in Mundart abgefasstes 'Eydgnosssisches Contrafeth', das mit seinen über 200 Rollen an zwei Spieltagen 1672 in Zug aufgeführt wurde (Drucke 1673, 1701, 1702)." (H. Thomke, in: HLS). - Ausführlich und einlässlich dazu s. O. Eberle, Johann Kaspar Weissenbach und das schweizerische Barocktheater. In: Schweizerische Monatshefte für Politik und Kultur 9, 1929/1930, H. 3, pp. 130-142. "Es ist übrigens schon viel über Weissenbach geschrieben worden, aber die landläufige Literaturgeschichtsschreibung steht einfach ratlos vor seinem Werke. Es fehlt ihr das Organ zum Verständnis des Barocktheaters überhaupt [..]. Jakob Bächtolds Meinung in seiner schweizerischen Literaturgeschichte ist vielfach noch heute die Meinung der Leute von der Zunft. Bächtold nennt das Contrafeth 'ein gänzlich verschnörkeltes Machwerk der Verfallszeit' [..]. Der Protestant Bächtold blickte aus dem realistischen 16. oder 19. Jahrhundert ins stilvolle 17. Jahrhundert hinein. Es ist begreiflich, dass es von seinem Standpunkt aus das vollkommene Widerspiel des Realismus, die rein sinnbildliche Kunst des Barock, nicht begreifen und darum auch nicht anerkennen konnte."

        Il Tesoro della Vita Humana Diviso in quattro Libri Di nuovo Ristampato, e con diligenza corretto.

      Per il Brigna,, Venetia, 1673 - Cm. 15,5, pp. (16) 592. Bel marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Solida legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida, dorso a piccoli nervi con titoli manoscritti. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nitida e corretta edizione di questo classico apparso in originale nel 1570 per opera di Leonardo Fioravanti, medico bolognese. Quest'ultimo espone le sue simpatie paracelsiane e presenta una lunga serie di rimedi medici, segreti chimici e ricette alchemiche spesso in opposizione alla più classica tradizione ippocratico-galenica. L'insieme di questa interessante raccolta di precetti proviene dalla lunga esperienza di studio e pure quella maturata grazie ai viaggi "per mare, et per terra, vedendo i secreti della natural filosofia, et le differenze che sono tra una regione, et l'altra, medicando così nell'una come nell'altra professione.".
