Fort in 8 de [20 (avertissement)]-774-[42 (table des chapitres, table des matières, table des paffages de l'Ecriture expliquez dans les petites Regles, & en quelques autres endroits)]pp., reliure en plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de caissons et de fleurons dorés, pièce de titre bordeaux encadrée d'un filet doré, titre doré, coiffe supérieure arasée, manque de cuir à la tête du dos, queues des mors et tête du mors supérieur rognés, mors fendillés mais sans gravité; reliure ferme et solide, au centre des plats armoiries dorées de François de Clermont-Tonnerre, évèque et Comte de Noyon, pair de France, roulette dorée sur les coupes, petit morceau de catalogue de libraire contenant la présentation du livre contrecollé dans l'angle supérieur externe du premier contreplat, frontispice orné d'une belle gravure représentant le philosophe théologien sous un arbre professant un cour à des élèves assis en face de lui, fer gravé sur la page de titre, gravures en bandeau, petites lettrines historiées et culs-de-lampe, quelques rousseurs, texte des chapitres sur deux colonnes, tranches mouchetées en rouge, bon et bel exemplaire. Basile de Césarée, appelé également Basile le Grand naquit en 329 après Jésus Christ. et décéda en 379 après J. C. Il fonda un ordre religieux dans la région du Pont, sur la mer Noire et surtout il est l'auteur d'une règle qui est devenue la principale règle monastique de l'église d'Orient qui a inspiré la règle de saint Benoît en occident. Il pratiqua l'ascèse toute sa vie. Il devint Évêque de Césarée en 370. Son engagement pendant la famine, les institutions qu'il créa et qui portent son nom ''la Basiliade'', en ont fait l'un des précurseurs du christianisme social. Il défendit la foi de Nicée contre l'arianisme et écrivit des traités sur le Saint-Esprit, développant la théologie de la Trinité. Il chercha autant que possible à pacifier les divisions au sein de l'église. Basile est reconnu comme l'un des grands théologiens du IV siècle et est père de l'église depuis 1568. Il écrivit traité ''Contre Eunomius'' entre 363 et 365 après Jésus Christ, un livre sur le Saint-Esprit en 375 après Jésus Christ. Il écrivit également trente sept homélies, dont neuf sur l'oeuvre des six jours appelée ''Hexameron ou les six jours de la création'', qu'Ambroise de Milan a imitée, treize homélies sur des psaumes, ainsi qu'une riche correspondance épistolaire. Il laissa également des traités de Morale et d'Ascétisme et des Commentaires sur diverses parties de l'Écriture. Il produisit en outre plusieurs autres oeuvres littéraires dans un style qui s'apparente à celui de la seconde sophistique, comme Lucien. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Speculum Juris Anglicani, Or, A View of the Laws of England, As They

      1673. A Stuart-Era "Nutshell" Brydall, John [b. 1635?]. Speculum Juris Anglicani, Or, A View of the Laws of England, As They are Divided into Statues, Common-Law and Customs: Incidently, Of the Customs Appertaining to the Famous City of London, Never Before Printed; Together with Resolutions on Several of Them, Given by the Reverend Judges at Westminster. London: Printed by John Streater, Eliz. Flesher and H. Twyford, 1673. [viii], 150 pp., final blank included in most collations lacking. Octavo (5-3/4"x 3-3/4"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards, later gilt fillets to spine, publication date to foot, fragment of lettering piece. Some rubbing to extremities, some chipping to head of spine, corners bumped, front board beginning to separate but still quite secure, rear hinge starting, partial crack in text block between pp. 144 and 145. Light toning to text, internally clean. A solid copy. * Only edition, one of two imprints issued the same year. Brydall was a fellow of Queen's College, Oxford, and a bencher of Lincoln's Inn. A remarkably prolific writer, he published 36 legal treatises, and left 30 others in manuscript at the time of his death. All of these are brief, synthetic works. Holdsworth says they are good summaries that are "clearly arranged and based on the leading authorities." Speculum Juris Anglicani is an elementary review of English statutory and customary law. It was, says Holdsworth, "doubtless useful" to the student. OCLC locates 5 copies in North American law libraries (Columbia, Georgetown, Library of Congress, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota). Holdsworth, A History of English Law VI:600, 605.

        The Blessedness of the Righteous Opened, and Further Recommended from the Consideration of the Vanity of this Mortal Life in Two Treatises

      Printed by A. Maxwell, for Sa. Gellibrand, London 1673 - Second edition (first published in 1668). Small octavo. 514, [12], 96pp. Probably late 18th or early 19th Century American full calf gilt. Joints a little tender but sound and tight, small strip cut from the top of the title page, presumably to remove a name, a very good copy. Ownership Signature (twice) of Rev. Frederick T. Tiffany of Cooperstown, New York, with a couple of ink notes in the text, probably in his hand. Tiffany was the Episcopalian Rector of Cooperstown, and according to some sources, the model for Rev. Mr. Grant in fellow townsman James Fenimore Cooper's novel *The Pioneers*, probably the reason why there exists a record of Tiffany suing Cooper for libel, although we have yet to determine how that worked out. Tiffany later became Chaplain to the U.S. House of Representatives. The author, John Howe was a Puritan cleric and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. *OCLC* locates no copies of the first edition, and two physical copies of this edition (and innumerable microfilmed copies in the U.S.); *Copac* adds several more in the U.K. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Novum Amsterodamum

      Amsterdam: Montanus, Arnold, 1673. unbound. View. Copper plate engraving. Image measures 5 x 6.5". Sheet measures 12 x 7.75". This view of the city of New Amsterdam is one of the earliest available views of New York City. Depicting the southern tip of Manhattan from the harbor, it shows the development of the then-small city around 1650, when it still belonged to the Dutch. A church and a number of homes and other buildings are visible, as are a windmill, flagstaff, and fort. On the shore, a crowd can be seen gathered around a gallows. In the foreground of the view, ships and rowboats in the harbor indicate New Amsterdam's already significant role as a trade center. A banner bearing the title of the view floats above the scene. The view appeared in Montanus's "Die Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld: of Beschryving van America." It is in very good condition with no chips or tears. Stain to lower left corner of page, not affecting the image. German text below and on verso. Arnold Montanus (1625-1683) was a Dutch theologian, historian, author, and publisher best known for his encyclopedia of the New World, entitled "Die Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld." His travelogues, as well as the famous volume that developed out of them, were rich with geographical, cultural, and scientific information. This view of early New York a fine example of his work that would be a joy for any New Yorker to own.

        Warhafftiger Bericht, Von einem jungen Menschen Peter Otte, Aus der Reichs-Stadt Goßlar gebürtig, Welcher Sich vom Satan, mit ihm einen Bund zu machen und ihm in allerley gottlosen Wesen, sechs Jahre zu dienen, verleiten lassen/ darauff durch des gerechten Gottes Urtheil in dessen leibliche Gewalt und Besitzung gerathen, erschrecklich gequälet.

VD17 1:069765F (mit nur einem Standortnachweis, inkomplettes Expl. in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek). - Der sich in Magdeburg als Söldner verdingende Goslarer Buchdruckergeselle Peter Otte litt unter sich steigernden deliranten Halluzinationen und psychogenen hysterischen Anfällen; der bekannte Pietist Christian Scriver (1629-1693), zu diesem Zeitpunkt Pfarrer an der Magdeburger Jakobskirche, erkannte bei den vorliegenden Symptomen eine Teufelsbesessenheit, die die Folge eines Bündnisses des Ottes mit Satan darstellte. Nach der vorgeblichen Heilung durch Scriver ging Otte in seine Heimatstadt zurück, erlebt aber in der Zwischensation Wernigerode einen schweren alkoholbedingten Rückfall und wurde vom Goslarer Pfarrer in Obhut genommen. Scriver resümierte daraufhin, das auch wenn Otte Gottes Gnade ausgeschlagen habe, er zumindest sieben Wochen frei von Satan gelebt hätte. - Titelblatt etwas berieben, 3 Blätter mit kleinem, unleserlichem Stempel am unteren Rand.

        Theatrum Machinarum Novum, das ist, Neu-vermehrter Schauplatz der Mechanischen Künsten

      Nuremberg: Paulus Fürsten, 1673. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. (Frontispiece dated 1661). Folio [33 x 21.5 cm], (6) ff., 44 pp., 154 numbered engraved plates. Bound in original blindstamped vellum over wooden boards, raised bands on spine, with title written in ink in an old hand, clasps and ties present. Some tiny wormholes in blank margin of engraved title and a few leaves; some minor handsoiling; small and light waterstain in upper margin of title and following leaves; typical toning and light browning seen in this volume, but rather less than usual; a few impressions of plates on the light side, or shaved with no loss to image. Generally a fresh copy with good strikes in a handsome original binding. Scarce second German edition and unusually fine copy, in its original blindstamped binding, of this supra-illustrated machinery book devoted to pumps, presses and milling machinery by the Nuremberg architect and engineer Böckler.The work contains a total of 154 full-page engraved plates, depicting a wide variety of mills, waterwheels, and grinding machines, including designs for water-driven perpetual-motion machines. The work is also unusual among Baroque machine books for primarily containing devices that had actually been realized-not simply the fantasies of inventors who could find a willing engraver.Machines described and pictured include paper mills; gunpowder mills; a fulling mill; a smithy with water-powered bellows; pipe boring mills; grinding apparatus for sharpening tools, knives and weapons; and windmills. The majority are grist mills and water-raising devices powered by water, animals, and humans, though other noteworthy examples include a roasting spit, a fire-engine, a pumping system for an outdoor fountain, a man-powered mill which is also a sort of circular stair-stepper, and a famous attempt at designing a perpetual motion machine. Many of the engravings are familiar because they were plagiarized in technology publications for the next hundred years.The work was first published in German in 1661, with a Latin translation following the next year. Several reprints of both followed, always with the same plates. Like most German books of the period, Böckler's books tend to brown, and this is one of the cleanest and freshest copies of his books we have ever encountered. * Graesse I.459; Hoover 142 (Latin); Singer, History of Technology III.16-17.

        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

      Frontis. port. of the author, 10 full-page engravings in the text, & 10 engraved plates (3 folding, 6 of the plates printed on either side of 3 sheets). 3 p.l. (including the frontis. port. & two title-pages), 10 leaves (the 7th is one of the folding engraved plates [it contains four images marked A-D and is oftentimes cut up and pasted onto blank versos of A8, B1, B2, & B3]), 11-24, 24-29, 29-49, 48-78 (with further frequent mispaginations), [2], [30], 16 pp. Small 8vo, orig. calf (joints & corners rubbed), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: M. Pitt, 1673. First edition of one the most maddening of all the great British science books: every copy is different, every copy lacks something or some things, and there seems to be no surviving "ideal" copy (even the ESTC says the "structure is quite uncertain"). This is the Macclesfield copy, bought "new" shortly after the book's publication and is as genuine a copy as could be, bound in its original calf binding. It has more of the parts than most copies. This is the first book on a mechanical calculator written in English, and the first separate work on the subject after Napier's Rabdologiae of 1617. There was little else in English on calculating instruments for more than 150 years, until the publication of Babbage in 1827. This book describes two "arithmetick instruments": the first is Morland's adding machine which was a modification of Pascal's calculator. The second instrument is his "multiplier," which was developed in 1666 and operated on the same principle as Napier's bones. Morland (1625-95), also describes in the addendum to the present book a "Perpetual Almanac." Virtually every copy of Morland's Description is made up somewhat differently; this example lacks the first four leaves of the "Explanation of the Perpetual Almanack" in the appended texts, but is otherwise more complete than the majority of copies we have examined. This copy includes the commonly lacking portrait, and also the cancellandum at F8 (the second cancellandum, G8, may in fact be the engraved title of the "Perpetual Almanack," which is bound after the second B signature). Our copy has the engraved illustrations in quire A printed directly onto the paper rather than pasted on, as found in other copies. Fine and tall copy, with some lower edges uncut. Contemporary signature of Sir Nathaniel Herne (ca. 1629-79), an alderman of London, from an established Norfolk family whose estate Broomfields was on Bethnal Green in the East End. From the library of the Earls of Macclesfield. ❧ Taylor, The Mathematical Practitioners of Tudor & Stuart England 1485-1714, no. 358. Tomash M132. .

        The Description and Use of Two Arithmetick Instruments

      London: Moses Pitt, 1673. First edition of the first book on a calculator written in English, and the first separate work on the subject after Napier’s Rabdologiae. There was little else in English on calculating instruments for more than 150 years and the publication of Babbage (1827). The work may also be considered the first comprehensive book in computer literature, as Pascal published nothing about his own machine except an 18-page pamphlet, now of the utmost rarity. Samuel Morland’s devices, which he claimed to be far superior to Napier’s earlier attempts at such machines, consisted of a series of dials whose numbers appeared within windows and which were operated by means of a pen-like object he called the “Index.” “The arithmetical machines, originally presented to Charles II in 1662 [although one plate contains the date 1666], were manufactured for sale by Humphry Adanson, who lived with Jonas Moore, esq., in the Tower of London. By means of them the four fundamental rules of arithmetic were readily worked ‘without charging the memory, disturbing the mind, or exposing the operations to any uncertainty’” (DNB). Aimed at simplifying business transactions, one of the devices was “A new multiplying instrument,” while the other was “A new and most useful Instrument for Addition and Substraction of pounds, shillings, pence, and farthings.” Morland’s calculating machines appear to have been modifications of one constructed by Blaise Pascal about 1642. Though Morland (1625-1695) was recognized as one of the most inventive minds of his age, his calculating machines did not meet with widespread approval. Pepys characterized one that he saw as very pretty but not very useful, while Robert Hooke, for example, found them “very silly”! (Taylor, The Mathematical Practitioners of Tudor and Stuart England, p. 386). Morland was responsible for many other ingenious inventions, including his “Perpetual almanac” (which forms an addendum to the present book); the speaking-trumpet; and a pioneering mechanical device for raising water, a significant improvement on contemporary English fire engines that would be subsequently developed by Jean de Hauteville and by Huygens (1679). His work obtained the interest and occasional financial support of King Charles II, who named Morland his “Master of Mechanicks” in 1681. With a notoriously complicated collation, virtually every copy of Morland’s Description is made up somewhat differently; this example lacks the first four leaves of the “Explanation of the Perpetual Almanack” in the appended texts, but is otherwise more complete than the majority of copies we have examined. This copy includes the commonly lacking portrait, and also the cancelandum at F8 (the second cancelandum, G8, may in fact be the engraved title of the “Perpetual Almanack,” which is bound after the second B signature). According to Wing, the work appears in two issues, in the earlier of which the 10 engravings of the instrument are pasted on the blank versos of the first A signature. This copy, the second issue, has the first six plates (as well as those tables in the second A signature) printed directly on the appropriate pages, while the remaining four instruments are found uncut on a folding plate. The unsigned folding table “for the ready finding of what Sign the Moon is in” (here in duplicate) appears to be explicated by leaves G3-7. The final 16 pages of the volume contain “A table shewing the beginning of every King’s reign, from the Conquest…,” “Advice touching the posts, and roads…” and “Forreign weights and measures,” signed at the end by Jonas Moore. With thanks to Dr. Georgianna Ziegler of the Folger and David Whitesell of Harvard for their assistance.Provenance: Sir Nathaniel Herne (c. 1629-1679), an alderman of London, from an established Norfolk family whose estate Broomfields was on Bethnal Green in the East End. Subsequently disbursed from the scientific library of the Earls of Macclesfield. * Wing M27777, Taylor 358.. 8vo., (3) ff. including engraved portrait and two title pages (the second dated 1672), one with full-page plate on verso, 10 ff.

In total: portrait, 11 engraved plates (one folding with 4 images) and 9 engraved tables (including one folding table in duplicate). Lacking first 4 ff. of second A signature; while copies usually lack the cancels F8 and G8, F8 is present here. Bound in contemporary blind-ruled calf, spine gilt with raised bands and red morocco title label, edges worn.

        Britannia: or, a Geographical Description of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland, with the Isles and Territories thereto belonging. And for The better perfecting of the said Work, there is added an Alphabetical Table

      LONDON: Tho Roycroft for Richard Blome, 1673 A fair copy of the 1st edition sadly lacking all but 2 of the maps. This work is rare. Richard Blome was heavily criticised at the time for producing the work - being accused of plagiarising Camden and Speed. He funded the work through subscribers but clearly sold few copies and ownership of it passed to John Wright in 1677. His work is now being reassessed and he is recognised for being the first to properly plan an illustrated description of London. This copy is in contemporary full leather binding which has been rebacked reasonably recently to provide a new spine with raised bands and gilt outlined title label. The boards have wear as you would expect - particularly to the corners - but are sound. With title page in red and black inks, dedication to Charles II, Preface to the Reader, alphabetical table of subscribers ('benefactors'), 12 leaves of coats of arms of the benefactors, portrait of Charles II pasted at the beginning of a general description of the Isles of Britain, county sections and an alphabetical account of the Nobility and Gentry by county. The maps remaining are the Map of London and a fold out map of the Isles of Wight, 'Iarsey', 'Garnsay', Sarke, Man, Orcades and Shetland. The contents are in very good condition - the maps being clearly removed by a previous owner to sell/put on walls separately. There are decorative head pieces. There is a red wax seal to the top of the title page and there are some ink annotations to the Coats of Arms section. There are occasional small repaired paper tears to the bottom margin of pages not affecting text. There is some browning to page edges. Overall a lovely copy and an opportunity to obtain a very rare work at a more affordable price.

        La Biblioteca Aprosiana. Passatempo autunnale... -

      Bologna, Manolessi, 1673.In-12. Bella legatura in pieno marocchino rosso, eseguita intorno al 1815 da Joseph Thouvenin per Antoine-Auguste Renouard, filetto dorato sui piatti, dorso con nervi, filetti, titolo e nome del legatore impr. in oro, merletto dorato interno. Con un?antiporta che mostra l'interno della biblioteca. 50 (compresa l'antiporta), (10), 733 (recte 683: la numerazione salta da 336 a 387) pp. Perfetto esemplare intonso, proveniente dalla biblioteca del noto bibliofilo francese Renouard (celebre per la tuttora insuperata bibliografia delle edizioni aldine), ed appartenuto poi al rinomato antiquario Breslauer. Prima edizione. «Questo raro volumetto... Aprosio fondò, verso il 1650, la biblioteca Aprosiana... fu la prima biblioteca pubblica della Liguria» (Nicolini, Antichi cataloghi, 120). Vedi anche il lungo articolo in Ceccarelli, Cataloghi di Biblioteche private, 82, in cui viene sottolineata, tra l'altro, «l'eccezionale rarità del catalogo». Brunet I, 325. Breslauer & Folter 67. First edition of one of the earliest and most comprehensive select bibliographies of Italian literature. The work contains the author's autobiography (261 pp.), and the list of books in his library, a large number of which had been donated to him by scholars with whom he was in correspondence. An unusual feature of the catalogue is the arrangement in alphabetical order of donors, presumably done to attract more gifts; both parts are replete with biographical and bibliographical information. Although the work ends with letter C, and remained incomplete, it provides a very interesting picture of the learned world in Aprosio's day. An uncut and particularly fine copy, bound by J. Thouvenin for Renouard in straight-grained red morocco (it is described in his ?Catalogue de la bibliothèque d'un Amateur?), and later in Breslauer?s collection of early bibliographies.

      Ciera 1673 Sontuoso e imponente messale della seconda metà del '600, riccamente illustrato, in bella legatura coeva; a fine volume sono presenti 19 cc. di aggiunte posteriori; la minima discrepanza tra segnature e registro vede certamente in errore quest'ultimo - peraltro senza variazione nel numero di carte.

Coperta discretamente conservata con spellature ed abrasioni, fermagli privi di contrograffa; front. un po' stanco, con tracce di umidità, le altre cc., lievemente brunite ma più che discrete, lamentano una leggera diffusione dell'inchiostro rosso - più sensibile nella prima parte del vol. -, alcuni strappi perlopiù mal restaurati in antico - uno dei quali interessa la parte inf. della quinta tav., crocifissione -, qualche arrossamento e traccia di umidità, diverse macchie di cera e altri piccoli difetti; gora d'acqua e macchie più sensibili nei fascicoli posteriori; un po' debole il frontespizio ma legatura nell'insieme molto solida; margini ampi. Esemplare attraente.

        Dell'Istoria della Compagnia di Giesù. L'Italia. Prima parte dell'Europa descritta.

      in Roma, Presso il Varese, 1673. 1673 In-folio (355x240mm), pp. (4), 534, (8), solida legatura ottocentesca m. pergamena con fregi in oro e titolo in oro su doppio tassello in pelle bicroma al dorso. Emblema gesuita al frontespizio. Timbro di duplicato di biblioteca in data 1816. Qualche fioritura e brunitura usuale. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione della parte dedicata all'Italia della grande storia della Compagnia di Gesù del Bartoli, che, in quanto storiografo ufficiale di tale ordine, poté attingere alle fonti originali e a molti materiali inediti. L'opera, scrisse il Belloni, "trascende i limiti d'una storia particolare delle vicende della Compagnia, per diventare una specie di storia universale". Daniello Bartoli (Ferrara, 1608-Roma, 1685) entrò quindicenne nella Compagnia di Gesù, di cui poi fu nominato storiografo. Storico e scrittore fecondissimo, dalla prosa immaginificamente barocca e sontuosa, compose anche opere morali, apologetiche, scientifiche (coraggiosa la sua ammirazione per Galileo anche dopo la condanna ecclesiastica), linguistiche, tutte di sterminata dottrina. E' considerato il precorritore del Segneri nella riforma dell'oratoria sacra. "Daniello Bartoli - scrisse Maria Corti riscattando il gesuita ferrarese da certi ingenerosi giudizi precedenti- e' uno scrittore che non tutti sanno quanto sia grande. Certo lo seppero il Leopardi, il Tommaseo, il Carducci, Giorgio Manganelli tra i contemporanei ". De Backer / Sommervogel, I, 978 e sgg. Brunet, I, 683. Graesse, I, p. 303. Gamba, 1773. Razzolini, pp. 41-42. Vinciana, 4905. Belloni, pp. 458-460. Mazzucchelli, II, pp. 436-437. Cfr. Alberto Asor Rosa in D.B.I., VI, p. 565: "Il B. si proponeva di narrare le vicende della Compagnia, seguendo la partizione offerta spontaneamente dai quattro continenti in cui essa aveva operato: Europa, Asia, Africa, America. L'opera fu pubblicata a mano a mano che il B. l'andava componendo. Nel 1653 apparve L'Asia (ristampata nel '56 e poi nel '67); nel '60 Il Giappone; nel '63 La Cina; nel '67 L'Inghilterra; nel '73 L'Italia. Nel 1663, separatamente, fu pubblicata La missione al Gran Mogor del p. Ridolfo d'Acquaviva, che fu aggiunta all'Asia nell'edizione del '67.".

Frontespizio con figure allegoriche e le armi di Ferdinando Maria Duca di Baviera a cui l'opera è dedicata, una tav. con il suo ritratto contornato da putti, 27 tavv. f.t. con 53 illustrazioni sull'uso della picca e del moschetto, 15 illustrazioni a p. pag. e 22 a m. pag. che mostrano schieramenti ed evoluzioni militari, il tutto finemente inc. in rame. (2),166, (6) pp.; stupendo esemplare. Magnifica opera di arte militare, di notevole interesse anche per i costumi. Comprende 33 capitoli sulla picca, 18 sul moschetto, 28 sulla tattica della fanteria, 10 sulle formazioni degli ordini di battaglia e 21 sulla difesa delle fortezze. Lipperheide 2086 e Gelli 139 citano la prima edizione (Bologna 1670), Vinciana, Aut. Ital. del '600, 1440, e Olschki, Choix, 10180 quella del 1683. Tra le nostre bibliografie, solo D'Ayala, Bibl. militare italiana, 40, cita questa impressione che è in effetti la prima edizione, con la sola data cambiata e l'aggiunta dell'indirizzo del Turrini al colophon. A superb military work, noteworthy also for the costumes. This edition is identical to the first of 1670, except for name Turrini and the date 1673 at end. Engr. half-title with allegorical figures and the arms of the Duke of Bavaria, one plate with his portrait, 90 plates of varying size on 64 sheets showing exercises with pikestaff and muskets, and exercises for offensive or defensive formations, all finely engraved.

        Il Giardin del Piemonte hoggi vivente nell'anno 1673 aperto all'Altezza Reale del Duca di Savoia, e Re di Cipro Carlo Emanuele II il Grande, il Forte, l'Intrepido.

      in Torino, per Bartolomeo Zapatta, 1673. 1673 In-16° (155x104mm), pp. (8), 202, (6) di indici dei personaggi. Legatura coeva p. pelle marrone (abilmente restaurata) con filetti in oro sul dorso e, ai piatti, riquadro di filetti perimetrale impresso in oro. Piccoli fregi ornamentali impressi in oro al centro dei piatti. Complessive 19 tavv. incise su rame f.t.: all'antiporta, ritratto in ovale di Carlo Emanuele II; al frontespizio, stemma sabaudo coronato; un ritratto in ovale di Maria Giovanna di Savoia Nemours, uno del Marchese di Greisy e 14 blasoni nobiliari (di Ludovica Maria di Savoia, di Emanuele Filiberto Amedeo, di Emanuele Filiberto Amedeo di Savoia, di Antonio di Savoia, di Fabrizio Spada, di Michele Beiamo, di Gaspare Lascaris, di Enrico Provana, di Giovan Battista Trucchi, di Augusto Filiberto Scaglia di Verrua, di Francesco Sanmartino d'Agliè, di Ignazio Carrotio, del Marchese di Caraglio, di Agostino Olgiati, di Carlo Francesco Renato Della Chiesa, di Antoine Des Pienes, del Conte Cigliari), il tutto inciso finemente da Georges Tasnière, da A. Depiene, da J. Chaussoy. Estrema irregolarità nella segnatura della paginazione. Ex-libris manoscritti settecenteschi alla prima c. bianca. Bruniture, fioriture ed aloni sparsi di non grave entità; discreto esemplare nel complesso. Prima edizione, di estrema rarità. La collazione del numero esatto delle tavole incise del volume risulta alquanto dubbia e problematica. L'esemplare catalogato dalla Libreria Vinciana, nel suo storico catalogo delle seicentine italiane del 1950, conteneva soltanto 7 tavole; il Manno accenna fuggevolmente a 18 tavole, senza meglio specificare i loro temi iconografici; il numero di 19 tavole si evince dalla scheda dell'indice S.B.N. e dal catalogo unificato delle biblioteche del Piemonte, che si basa sull'esemplare conservato a Casale Monferrato. Peraltro, è molto probabile che non tutti gli esemplari contenessero all'origine l'opuscolo, interfogliato nel ns. esemplare fra le segnature G ed H, "L'Horoscopo del Piemonte": il libro uscì evidentemente in veste tipografico-iconografica eterogenea e compòsita, sicché non esiste un esemplare dell'opera perfettamente uguale all'altro. Il libro consiste in una raccolta di sonetti, odi, canzoni encomiastiche indirizzate ai più illustri rappresentanti del patriziato pedemontano del declinare del Seicento, principi, dame nobili, prelati, abati, cavalieri, ministri, considerati dall'autore "il Giardin del Piemonte", il fior fiore di quanti facevano capo alla corte di Carlo Emanuele II. L'Arnaldo, di Villefranche, presso Nizza, nato nel 1638, morto in data imprecisata, fu teologo, letterato e poeta. Addottoratosi in teologia a Milano, al Collegio di Brera, fu in seguito nominato Protonotaro Apostolico. Manno, I, 1120. Cat. Vinciana, 2313. Picchetto, Le edizioni piemontesi del Seicento della Biblioteca Civica di Torino, nn. 207-208. Manca al Lozzi e a Canavesio, Seicentina.

        Il giornale de Letterati per tutto l'anno 1673

      Nicolò Angelo Tinassi 1673 In 8° - pp.176 - Senza legatura - 12 riviste mensili rilegate insieme - Capilettera, testatine e finalini. Alcune incisioni nel testo - Manca il frontespizio, piccola mancanza a pag.19 che non lede il testo - Il Giornale de' Letterati è stata una delle più antiche riviste italiane in assoluto. Il primo numero uscì a Roma il 28 gennaio 1668 ad opera di un gruppo di intellettuali (fra cui si ricordano Michelangelo Ricci, Salvatore Serra, Francesco Nazzari e Giovanni Giustino Ciampini) i quali, sul modello del Journal des sçavans e delle Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society apparsi entrambi nel 1665, progettarono una rivista con recensioni delle novità librarie apparse all'estero. I soci si erano obbligati a fornire i riassunti delle opere in lingua straniera pubblicate in Europa; lo stesso Nazzari avrebbe curato le novità provenienti dalla Francia, Salvatore Serra le altre.Gli argomenti trattati in questa annata sono d'interesse letterario, filosofico, storico e scientifico-medico e sono tutti molto interessanti, curiosi ed alcuni inediti.Ne citiamo alcuni: Gio.Car.Gallet , Tabula revolutionum motum solisFrancesco Laurenti, Saturni e Martis observationesTomaso Plat, Lettera d'alcune esperienza intorno al veleno della viperaM.Hugens, Lettera intorno a fenomeni dell'acqua purgata d'aria?

        The Blessedness of the Righteous opened, and Further Recommended from the Consideration of the Vanity of this Mortal Life in Two Treatises

      Printed by A. Maxwell for Sa. Gellibrand London: Printed by A. Maxwell, for Sa. Gellibrand. 1673. First. Second edition (first published in 1668). Small octavo. 514, [12], 96pp. Probably late 18th or early 19th century American full calf gilt. Joints a little tender but sound and tight, small strip cut from the top of the title page, presumably to remove a name, a very good copy. Ownership signature (twice) of Rev. Frederick T. Tiffany of Cooperstown, New York, with a couple of ink notes in the text, probably in his hand. Tiffany was the Episcopalian Rector of Cooperstown, and according to some sources, the model for Rev. Mr. Grant in fellow townsman James Fenimore Cooper's novel The Pioneers, probably the reason why there exists a record of Tiffany suing Cooper for libel, although we have yet to determine how that worked out. Tiffany later became Chaplain to the U.S. House of Representatives. The author, John Howe was a Puritan cleric and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, and two physical copies of this edition (and innumerable microfilmed copies); Copac adds several more in the U.K. .
