GRUEBER Johann.; D'ORVILLE Albert
1673. One folding plate of Chinese characters, engraved portrait of Schall von Bell in lover margin of p. 23. Text in Italian, Latin, and French. Folio. 19th century half-calf by Hatton of Manchester. Title dust-stained. Engraved exlibris of the Macclesfield library to front pastedown. [ii], 23; 23pp. Paris, Clousier & Cramoisy, The two Jesuits Johann Grüber (1623-1680) and Albert Comte d'Orville (1621-1662) were sent to Rome to defend Adam Schall in the rites controversy. Due to the increasing dangers of the sea-route, they decided on the overland-route via Tibet and Agra. They spent two months in Lhasa but unfortunately D'Orville died due to exhaustion in Agra and his companion continued to Rome accompanied by another Jesuit, Heinrich Roth. On his arrival Grüber was questioned, and some of his answers appear in China Monumentis by Kircher, published in 1667. The present two texts were printed as part of Thévenot's ?Relations de divers voyages curieux? which was issued in parts in Paris from 1663 onwards.

The Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible "The Noblest Monument of English Prose" * Elaborate Fine Binding * Extra-Illustrated * Cambridge, 1673 BIBLE, IN ENGLISH, AUTHORIZED VERSION [The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New], J. Hayes; CAMBRIDGE; 1673. [Herbert's 712.] A fine example for a collector desirous of a representative copy of the crowning jewel of English Bible translation and one of the most desired antiquarian books of all time. The American Bible Society has a similar example with 160 rare steel engravings from cuts by F. H. Van Hove present within the text; this copy has TWO HUNDRED RARE ENGRAVINGS. Preparation of the Royal Version took more than five years and was laboriously attended to by over fifty translators and researchers. Six separate groups were assigned a specific section of the Scriptures and each made a preliminary translation under the direction of Lancelot Andrewes, Edward Lively and John Harding. The final translations were then exchanged and reviewed, reaching a final committee of six. Supervision of the printing was carried out by Miles Smith and Thomas Bilson. Although the Royal Version appropriates much from the Tyndale, Coverdale, Geneva and Bishops' Bibles, it is unquestionably regarded as the greatest literary translation of the Bible ever produced. Further information, additional photographs and collation details available upon request. Please feel free to enquire regarding other early printed books and manuscripts, particularly pertaining to early English Bibles. We currently have a wide variety of Tyndale New … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Maroquin aux chiffre et armes de Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche (1638-1683), reine de France],
1673. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr [Maroquin aux chiffre et armes de Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche (1638-1683), reine de France], L'office de la Semaine Sainte selon le Missel et le Bréviaire romain etc. Paris, La Compagnie des Libraires associés, 1673. In-8 (19.5*13.5cm), [16]-752p. Jolie édition avec 4 gravures pleine page. L'intérêt de cet exemplaire réside bien entendu dans sa reliure. Elle sortirait logiquement de l'atelier du relieur du roi de l'époque, c'est-à-dire Claude Le Mire. Toutefois, aucun travail n'a été fait jusqu'à présent sur sa production et il serait donc très hasardeux de l'affirmer. Plein maroquin rouge, plats ornés d'une large roulette d'encadrement, armes d'alliance couronnées surmontant deux palmes stylisées et nouées, semis alterné de chiffres MTA couronnées et de fleurs de lys, dos à nerfs orné dans chaque caisson du chiffre couronné au centre et de fleurs de lys aux angles, petite roulette sur les coupes, petite roulette intérieure, tranches dorées. Mouillures claires, taches d'encre marginales, traces de manipulation (cahier un peu décalé). Très bel état de la reliure qui a été finement restaurée aux coins, coiffes et en bout de mors, avec fines reprises de dorures. Le mors inferieur semble entièrement restauré. Magnifique reliure. Ces reliures à semi pour Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche sur des ouvrages in-8 sont particulièrement rares à la différence de celles aux armes des Orléans qui en firent relier des séries pour leurs maisons.

Vetancurt, Agustín de.
Francisco Rodriguez Lupercio, 1673. In the 17th century the study of Nahuatl (commonly called Aztec) reached a pinnacle, springing from the herculean, fruitful efforts of 16th-century Franciscan scholars and the perspicacious, intuitive understanding of the early-17th-century Jesuit linguist, Father Carochi. Later in the century another major figure was to appear: Agustín de Vetancurt (1633-1700), a distinguished Franciscan scholar and writer, the author of the Teatro mexicano, and vicar of the chapel of San José de los Naturales in the Franciscan monastery in Mexico City, in which latter role he perfected his understanding of Nahuatl. At the end of this highly important and extremely rare grammar are found a comprehensive index, a short catechism, and instructions on the commandments and the sacraments of the Catholic Church, being => all in Nahuatl. Part One of the text expresses Vetancurt's important insight that Nebrija's classical, early-16th-century paradigm for the study of European languages, specifically Latin and Spanish, had its shortcomings when applied to the major New World language under scrutiny -- though in the end he resigns himself to using that five-part organization, which was the one most familiar to his readers. The printer has enlivened the typography with => a good woodcut of Saint Anthony on the title-page, a few elegant large woodcut initials, and head- and tailpieces composed of printer's ornaments. We note that virtually all bibliographies have failed to state that leaf E1 is misfolioed as 14 (it should be 15 and the error is not corrected … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALESSANDRI, Alessandro
1673. Alexander ab Alexandro (1461-1523) was an important Neapolitan lawyer during the turn of the 16th-century. He practiced law in both Naples and in Rome. His main written work "Genilium Gierum", is a collection of life stories as well as important details on Roman law, philology, and general learning, written in the same style as Gellius's 'Attic Nights'. One of the more humorous stories Alexandro shares in this book is of his home in Rome. He claimed it to be a haunted house and relates many of the bizarre experiences to the ghost living in his house. This first Hackiana edition is a beautiful printing of this famous Italian law book.

HIEROCLES, of Alexandria
1673. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Hierocles of Alexandria was a 5th-century Greek writer. The only surviving work of Hierocles, who studied under Plutarch, was his commentary on Golden Verses of Pythagoras. It included a treatise on providence and fate and his arguments against predestination. However, his views did not favor the providence of a divine God, rather focused on irrational worldly needs. Although Christianity was not mentioned in his works, his writings have been used to reconcile traditions between Greek orthodox and Christian beliefs. (Mozley). [Attributes: First Edition]

SAYNDYS, George
1673. George Sandys was a 16th- and early 17th-century traveler who spent time in Italy, Turkey, and Palestine. "Sandys travelled to the Levant in 1610, spending a year in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt. His observations first appeared in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Sandys was also interested in colonial promotion and was one of the undertakers of the third charter of the Virginia company in 1611." (Blackmer 297) This work also describes the islands of Cyprus, Crete, Malta, Sicily, and the Aeolians; as well as Rome, Naples, Venice, Syracuse, and a good description of Jews in Jerusalem According to the STC, these travels were, "written a pleasant style, and are distinguished by erudition, sagacity and love of truth."

HAZART, Cornelius
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Cornelius Hazart was a 17th-century Dutch Jesuit priest and controversialist writer. His "Ecclesiastical History of the Whole World" delivered on the 'controversial' side of church history, as Hazart explored some of the most detestable acts of the church including tortures, imprisonments, wars on religion, and brutal executions, such as drowning, hangings, beheadings, and burnings. This 1673 Dutch printing is taken from the first Antwerp edition from 1667. This book covers church history throughout Europe, including Germany, France, Netherlands, and England, with parts dedicated to the Americas and Africa. This universal church history is unquestionably Hazart's greatest work, and is ideal for historical perspective on Jesuit missions and missionaries around the world, as well as martyrs throughout church history.

MARTINET, Jean.
Landwehr, Romanic emblem books 504; Praz, p. 414; Saunders, The 17th-century French emblem, p. 7. First and only edition of an emblem book devoted to the Sun-King Louis XIV of France. The book is nicely produced with a woodcut vignette on title, little woodcut initials, large woodcut tail-pieces, and with borders built up out of ornamental cast fleurons underneath each emblem. And at the end of the dedication to Louis le Grand, the King's personal emblem, a woodcut sun, is added.

MARIUS MERCATOR.

"Marius Mercator (fl. 418-449) ""A Latin Christian writer, probably of African birth. A friend and disciple of St. Augustine, he wrote c.418 at Rome against Pelagius. Some ten years later, when in Constantinople, perhaps as the agent of Pope Celestine (422-432) he again wrote in defence of orthodoxy this time attacking both Nestorians and Pelagians. A collection of his writings, compiled about 100 years after his time, has survived in a Vatican MS. (Cod. Vat. Pal. 234). It consists largely of Mercator's translations of and replies to Nestorius's writings, made (acc. to E. Schwartz) for the Latin-speaking monks of Thrace, and is one of the most important sources for our knowledge of Nestorius's doctrines. Writings ed. [by] J. Garnier, J.J. (Paris 1673; repr. in J. P.

VERSLAG VAN HET BELEG VAN NAARDEN "Belegeringe der Stadt Naerden Zijnde de Eerste overwinninge die zijn Konincklijcke Hoogheyt de Heer Prinse van Oranjen heeft gedaen verovert op den 12 September 1673." Kopergravure vervaardigd in 1673 door Romeijn de Hooghe, uitgegeven door Marcus Doornick te Amsterdam. Afm. 41,5 x 53,2 cm. In april 1672 verklaarden Engeland en Frankrijk de Nederlandse Republiek de oorlog. Nadat Franse troepen op 12 juni 1672 de Rijn bij Lobith waren overgetrokken stortten de Nederlandse verdedigingslinies ineen. Alleen door een deel van Holland en Brabant onder water te zetten, de zogenaamde Waterlinie, wisten Holland en Zeeland stand te houden. Na de val van het Staats bewind en de machtsovername van stadhouder Willem III, werd met de herovering van de vesting Naarden op 12 september 1673 een groot tegenoffensief ingezet. De succesvolle belegering en inname van de vesting is hier in beeld gebracht door Romeijn de Hooghe (1645-1708). De Hooghe heeft op de plaat verschillende scenes en hoofdpersonen afgebeeld die door verklarende inschriften worden verklaard. In het midden van de plaat zien we Willem III. Hij is omgeven door zijn staf. Voor de prins ligt de burgemeester van Naarden geknield. Rechts op de voorgrond kiezen de Franse troepen de aftocht. Op de voorgrond sc?nes uit het soldatenleven in het legerkamp. In de verte het beleg en de bestorming van de stad.

S. l. [Germany]. Copper engraving and letterpress (slightly age-toned, soft folds, tiny tears in margins and in the fold) 41 x 32 cm (16.1 x 12.6 inches). A rare broadside in German language showcases supernatural phenomena in Moscow, Hungary and Germany in 1673. - This extremely rare and intriguing illustrated broadside showcases the supposed appearance of diverse and bizarre natural phenomena in the sky, variously above Moscow, Hungary and Germany in the year 1673. Each incident of natural phenomena depicted is accompanied by explanatory lines of verse below. Prior to the Age of the Enlightenment, natural phenomena were popularly interpreted to be divinely-ordained signs, or premonitions, of future events. These phenomena included the sighting of comets, meteor showers, the Northern Lights, eclipses, the apparition of weird shapes or lights in the sky, or the occurrence of unusual storms, et cetera. In the era before scientific explanations were either available or accepted by the masses, people were left to rationalise these extraordinary events, often carried away by imagination or religious fervour. Usually, but not always, natural phenomena were interpreted as portents of grave calamities, such as war, plague or famine, brought about by a vengeful God intent upon punishing sinful societies. Just as sensationally negative new stories fascinate today’s public, generating intense media coverage, natural phenomena in former times captivated the people, resulting in a rich corpus of sermons, periodical articles, pamphlets, books and broadsides (such as the present work).

Arnstadt (d. i. Rudolstadt), Caspar Freyschmid für Joh. Barthel Oehlers in Leipzig, 1668, 1671 und 1673. Die erste umfassende literarische Gestaltung des Rübezahl-Stoffes. "Es handelt sich hier um das erste große Rübezahlbuch, auf dem alle späteren Fassungen – auch die anderer Herausgeber – beruhen" (Dünnhaupt). Praetorius (1630-1680) war ein ungemein fruchtbarer Polyhistor, dessen von umfassender Belesenheit zeugenden Veröffentlichungen bei den Zeitgenossen sehr beliebt waren und schon seit Grimmelshausen einer ganzen Generation deutscher Dichter unerschöpfliches Material lieferten. Auch Goethe schöpfte aus diesen Quellen, vor allem für seinen 'Faust'. Heute kennt man Praetorius hauptsächlich durch die Entdeckung, Aufzeichnung und Herausgabe der Rübezahl-Sagen. Insgesamt verzeichnet Praetorius 241 Geschichten über den Berggeist aus dem Riesengebirge. Bis heute ist kein umfassenderes Werk zu diesem Thema erschienen. Es machte Rübezahl zu einer weit über Schlesiens Grenzen hinaus bekannten Gestalt. Als Quellen gibt Praetorius einerseits gedruckte Bücher an, andererseits von Siedlern des Gebirges und Reisenden stammende mündliche wie schriftliche Berichte. Er beruft sich auch auf Informationen von Heilpflanzenhändlern, die Kräuter im Riesengebirge sammelten und dann Apothekern zur Weiterverarbeitung brachten. Diese 'Wurzelmänner' betrachteten Rübezahl als Schutzpatron und behaupteten, dass er ihre Pflanzen mit besonderer Heilkraft versehen habe. Trotz ihrer Beliebtheit im 17. und 18.

[Pacific exploration] Garcia, Francisco.
First edition of this important biography of one of the earliest missionaries of the Marianas Islands, the Spanish mission intended to serve as a stepping stone to exploration and settlement in the Pacific. Extremely rare; Medina (1637 - 1670) was the first -alongside San Vitores- missionary to travel and settle in the Islands, responsible for Spanish presence, and was the first martyr of the Marianas, just before San Vitores himself (d. Guam, 1672). This relation was published the same year as the "Exemplar vida y gloriosa muerte... del P. Luis de Medina de la Compañia de Jesus. Que passo a la conquista espiritual de las Islas de los Ladrones, que oy se llaman Marianas", taken out of San Vitores' papers; it is thus one of the most primitive and reliable accounts of the earliest days of the settlement in the Pacific and the opposition encountered from the native population -the Chamorros. The work is a first-hand notice on the Spanish attempt to colonize the Pacific, as a stepping-stone to Australia -as San Vitores clearly states in his Memorial to the King of Spain, following closely Quiros´ view-, narrated through the life, missionary activity, and martyrdom of Father Medina. Chapters include: III. Como se partio a las Indias y lo que hizo en el viage; IIII. Como entro el Padre Luis de Medina en las Islas Marianas, viages, y fruto que hizo en ellas; V. Trabaios que padecio en estas Islas el Padre Luis de Medina, y la providencia con que Dios le libro de muchos peligros; VI.

[The Hague: Steucker Brothers], 1673.First Edition of this tour-de-force of Baroque book illustration, and one of the most powerful graphic works by Romeyn de Hooghe. The acclaimed narrative focus of de Hooghe's engravings reach their zenith in the plates of the Advis Fidelle. Philip Hofer placed these engravings on an equal plane with the greatest anti-war designs, comparable to Callot's Grandes Misères de la Guerre and Goya's Desastres de la Guerra. "One of the few and too-little known masterpieces of the period" (Fürstenberg, quoted in 'The Book Collector,' 1960, p. 432). In 1667 the French King Louis XIV invaded the Dutch Republic and advanced as far as the province of Utrecht. De Hooghe was vehemently opposed to this flagrant French expansionism, which resulted in the death of hundreds of his fellow countrymen. When cruelties committed by the French mercenary troops against the civilian population of Flanders and Holland became known, de Hooghe decided to expose the French atrocities in eight powerful designs he provided for the text written by Abraham de Wi … [Click Below for Full Description]
