        Recueil de divers voyages faits en Afrique et en l'Amerique, qui n'ont point esté encore publiez.

      Paris: Louis Billaine 4to (23.7 cm, 9.4"). [8] ff., 262, 35, [1 (blank)] 23, [1 (blank)], 49, [1 (blank)] pp., [1] f., 81, [1 (blank)] pp., 4 maps (3 fold. of 4), 13 plts. (3 fold.). 1674 First edition of this collection of significant and interesting voyages, edited by a scholar and book collector who served in the employ of Louis XIV before being appointed Keeper of the King's Library at St. James by Charles II. The compilation includes French-language travelogues of Barbados, the Nile River, Ethiopia, "l'Empire du Prète-Jean," Guiana, Jamaica, and the English colonies, with illustrations including banana and palmetto trees, Caribbean pottery, and maps of New England, Jamaica (including Florida and the Antilles), and Barbados. Some of both the voyages and the maps make their first published appearances here—among them the New England map depicting the Maryland and Virginia coastlines, engraved by R. Michault after one contained in Richard Blome's Description of the Island of Jamaica, part of which work appears here translated into French. Altogether, a volume notable both for its strong African and North American content and for the aesthetic appeal of its plates and pleasingly ornamented typography. Recent 17th-century style mottled calf with covers framed in a gilt roll and double-panelled in gilt fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons; spine with gilt-stamped leather title and author labels and gilt-stamped decorative devices. Several pages (not including title) and the versos of a few plates stamped by a now-defunct institution. Paper slightly embrittled. Light waterstaining to a number of leaves and plates, mostly in margins; the first map with two repairs. One leaf (blank?) prior to Colonies Angloises excised; lacking the folding map of the Nile. A good copy, in a handsome binding of recent vintage and contemporaneous style.

        Afbeeldinge van de bloedige batailje, voorgevallen tusschen het Franse leger, onder den Prins van Condé, en dat van de geallieerde, als den keyser, Spaense .. en Prince van Orangien. Op den 11 Augusti 1674.

      Amsterdam, Marcus Doornick, 1674.Broadside with large engraving with on the left side Charleroy and on the right side Mariomont and below letterpress in three columns. Ca. 49 x 37,5 cm.The Battle of Seneffe was fought on 11 August 1674 between the French army under the command of Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé and the Dutch-German-Spanish army under William III of Orange. During the Franco-Dutch war, William III commanded a Dutch-German-Spanish army through the southern Netherlands into the territory of Northern France. France defended this area with an army under Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé. For five weeks the two armies manoeuvred without getting into combat with each other. On the 10th of August, William III decided to head for Paris in order to force the enemy into fighting.Condé sent a detachment of about 500 horsemen to keep the Dutch vanguard busy near the village of Seneffe, blocking the advance of William. In the meantime, Condé tried to surround the 60,000 allied troops with the 45,000 men at his disposal.The horsemen managed to keep the Dutch vanguard busy, but the envelopment of the main allied force failed. After ten hours Condé had 8,000 dead or wounded and William - 11,000, with the allied troops retreating from the battlefield. - (Some small marginal repairs). - FineMuller, Historieplaten, 2554; Atlas van Stolk 2599.

        A treatise of tenures. Containing the original, nature, use, and effect of feudal or common-law tenures.

      First Irish edition and, notably, printed for a => woman publisher. Sir Geoffrey (also given as Jeffrey or Jeffray) Gilbert (1674-1726), an eminent English judge, became chief baron of the Irish exchequer to the acclaim of all and sundry -- until a case he was hearing put the Irish House of Lords in direct conflict with the British, leading to his brief imprisonment and, though much of the situation was beyond his control, much subsequent blame from the Irish for the passing of the Dependency of Ireland on Great Britain Act of 1719. During his otherwise more fortunate career, Gilbert wrote a number of legal works, none of which were published until after his death but all of which were well-received upon their appearance.This particular treatise was => praised by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1815, and by John Adams; it appears here in its first Irish and third overall edition, following the first of 1730.

Praemissis, horum occasione, tentamentis variis ad solutionem ilustriss veterum problematis de anguli trisectioni. Florence, Gugliantini, 1677.2 works in one vol, 4to (232 x 166 mm), I: pp [xii] 284; with two engraved plates and woodcut diagrams in text; II: [viii] 63, with four folding engraved plates; slight browning to a few leaves, fine copies in contemporary calf £6000I. First edition, second and first complete issue (see below) of this major Galilean text, an assembly of previously unpublished writings by Galileo, together with pieces by Torricelli and Viviani himself. Viviani (1622-1703), Galileo's distinguished pupil, amanuensis, and biographer, was given by Cardinal de' Medici a fragment of Galileo manuscript demonstrating the fifth and seventh propositions of Euclid, book V, both concerned with size and proportionality. This fragment is published here (pp 61-78) together with other writings of Galileo (pp 79-113), Viviani's own completion of Galileo's demonstration (pp. 1-60), writings by Torricelli, and fragments of an unpublished dialogue by Galileo.Viviani himself, 'with the rigor and prolixity of the ancients, . devoted an appendix to geometric problems, among which was one on the trisection of an angle, solved by the use of the cylindrical spiral or of a cycloid; another was the problem of duplicating the cube, solved by means of conics or of the cubic xy2 = k' (DSB).There are two recorded issues of this work; the present copy is intermediate between these two. The first edition appeared in 1674, with text paginated to 149, followed by three unnumbered pages of addenda and privilege; the work was reissued in 1676, with a further section written in answer to questions posed by a Leiden student in 1675, the two plates, and the dedication dated 16 May 1676, although the titlepage date remained 1674. See Gamba 1048 (résumé in Riccardi).II. First edition of this treatise on the problem of trisecting an angle. Viviani presents a method based on the equilaterial hyperbola or the conchoid.I Carli and Favaro 339; Cinti 151; Riccardi I.2 625.2; II Riccardi I.2 627.4

With his Life and Death [signed: ?????????????]; a brief table of the principal Heads, and some other new additions. Newly bound in a luxurious three quarters green Nigerian goatskin morocco, pale brown cloth, five raised bands, gilt title and date to spine, gilt rules to compartments and corners, page edges stained yellow, possibly contemporary. No portrait frontis. One of the transcendent literary masterpieces of the English Renaissance, this edition - one of several published around the period - also contains 'Certain Sonnets Never before Printed', Sidney's esteemed 'The Defence of Poesie', an influential and pioneering essay of literary criticism, and the poem 'Astrophel and Stella.' A preface of a letter by Sidney to his sister the Countess of Pembroke is followed by 'The Life and Death of Sir Philip Sidney'. Also some 30 Latin epigrams in honour of Sidney, who died in Holland in 1586 of his wounds from the battle of Zutphen. Browning and mottling to pages, the odd scattered mark, a small dampstain to upper corner affecting some pages to rear - nothing serious - and internally overall a decent, clean copy. Margins occasionally uneven, which appears to be more a printing issue than any uneven trimming, but no loss of text. Sm. folio. (30.5cm x 21cm) tp, A2, b-d2, B-Z3, Aa-Zz3, Aaa-Iii3. [32], 624, [26]. pp. 576 is followed by 541-564 and then by pp. 601-614 but the content on these pages is in order. An expert and stylishly executed binding, will look most attractive on the shelf.

La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France a la Succession des Couronnes d'Espagne. Paris: Chez Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy, 1674. [xxiv], 164, [1] pp. 12mo. (5-1/2" x 3"). Contemporary sheep treated to resemble tree-calf, gilt spine with raised bands, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends, corners bumped. Toning to text, faint dampstaining and spotting to a few leaves, internally clean. $1,250. * First edition. The author was the Archbishop of Embrun, later Prince-Archbishop of Metz. Mazarin appointed him ambassador to Venice in 1659. Louis XIV appointed him ambassador to Spain in 1667 to pursue French claims to the Spanish Netherlands in the name of Maria Theresa of Austria (1638-1683), the Spanish Infanta and Queen Consort of Louis XIV. These claims were tenuous and constructed on intricate legal foundations. French jurists argued that the Spanish Netherlands should not go to the still underage heir to the Spanish throne, Charles II of Spain (1661-1700), because he was the issue of the second marriage of Philip IV. Maria Theresa on the other hand was a result of his first marriage and the lands thereby 'devolved' to her and, of course, Louis XIV. France's claims led to the War of devolution (1667-68). Feuillade defends France's claims with an argument grounded in the "fundamental laws of Spain, the examples of past centuries and the solemn judgments of the Royal Council of Castile." A second edition was published in 1699. Both copies are scarce, especially in North America. OCLC locates no copies in North American law libraries. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 1:1145.

Die eigentliche Darstellung ist nahezu ident mit jener aus dem 10. Band des "Theatrum Europaeum", vermutlich angefertigt von Melchior Küsel.- Kaiserin Margarita (geb. 1651 in Madrid - gest. 1673 in Wien) war die erste Gemahlin von Kaiser Leopold I. "Nach dem Scheitern seiner Ehepläne mit der spanischen Infantin Maria Theresia . willigte Kaiser Leopold in eine Verbindung mit deren jüngerer Schwester Margarita ein, um die gewünschte Verbindung zu Spanien weiter zu verstärken und die Erbansprüche auf Spanien aufrechtzuerhalten. Margarita, die aus einer Verwandtenehe von Onkel und Nichte stammte, war ihrerseits die Cousine und Nichte Leopolds, den sie auch während der Ehe 'Onkel' nannte. 1663 wurde die lange geplante Verlobung der Zwölfjährigen verkündet. Die Hochzeit fand zu Ostern 1666 per procuram in Spanien statt. Die Vierzehnjährige reiste mit großem Gefolge von Madrid nach Barcelona, von dort aus in einem prächtigen, goldverzierten Schiff und Begleitgeschwader von 34 Galeeren nach Genua . zu Land weiter über Mailand und Brescia, wo sie im Oktober 1666 an den kaiserlichen Abgesandten übergeben wurde. Das Kaiserpaar sah sich zum erstenmal in Schottwien. Anfang Dezember zog die Braut endlich in Wien ein. Höhepunkt der wochenlangen Hochzeitsfeiern war ein prunkvolles Roßballett auf dem Burgplatz" (Hamann).- Bis an den Rand beschnitten, Faltspuren u.

      A Paris : Chez Pierre le Petit, Imprimateur & Libraire ordinaire du Roy, rue S. Iaques, a la Croix d'Or, M. DC. LXXIV. [1674] - 1674 1st ed Missionary Gregorio Lopez MEXICO Chichimecos INDIANS Sante Fe NM by Francisco de Losa (1536-1634) / VERY RARE Gregorio Lopez (1542 – 1596) spent over thirty years in Mexico (1562-1596), principally in the pueblo of Santa Fé, where he lived among the Chichimecos Indians. The life of Gregorio López (1542-1596) is known from a biography by Francisco de Losa (1536-1634), a priest who met López in Mexico and stayed with him until the former's death. Losa presents the biography in a straight-forward chronology, summarizing the content of each chapters is sufficient to convey known facts about López and the author's insights. Although intended to edify and popularize, Losa does not use any particularly hagiographic devices. The work is a simple and pious tale of a hermit. First Edition of the French Translation by Arnauld d'Andilly of this biography of "one of the most successful of the early missionaries among the Indians of New Spain."

First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and references to Dibba. Della Valle, an Italian nobleman, sailed from Venice in 1614 to Istanbul, where he arrived in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there Della Valle proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. In 1621 he decided to return to Europe and set off for the Persian Gulf, but the Persian and English blockade prevented his sailing. By way of India he finally sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from he crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. During his travels he wrote regularly to his learned friend in Naples, Mario Schipano. These 54 letters formed the basis of an account of his travels that was first published in Rome as Viaggi di Pietro della Valle from 1650 to 1658. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities [.] Della Valle's eighteen letters from Persia provide one of the most detailed sources of information for most aspects of Persian life in the second half of Shah Abbas' reign" (Gurney). - Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. VD 17, 39:135561Q. Tobler, p. 95. Cf.

        Klare Onderrichtinge der voortreffelijcke Worstel-konst,

      Amsterdam: Johannes Jansonius van Waesberge,, 1674. Verhandelende hoeman in alle voorvallen van Twist in Handtgemeenschap, sich kan hoeden: en alle Aengrepen, Borst-stooten, Vuyst-slagen &c. verstetten. Quarto (235 × 189 mm). Contemporary full vellum, remnant of ink lettering to the spine. 71 etched plates by Romeyn de Hooghe, plate 6 was originally duplicated and the duplication corrected at the time by the imposition of the correct plate numbered 7, over it, so neatly is this done that it is barely visible from the recto. A little rubbed, the front free endpaper somewhat creased and with some loss at the lower corner, light browning, a few faint damp-stains in margins, occasional finger-soiling, some minor chipping at the edges, but overall very good. First edition of this renowned manual of self-defence. The work is particularly notable for the telling combination of de Hooghe's clear, but nonetheless dramatic, illustrations, and the simplicity and lucidity of Petter's written instructions. Prof. Sydney Anglo describes it as "historically speaking, the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed ... the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous" (The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p.190). While Eli Steenput, in the introduction to his English translation (Journal of Western Martial Art, October 2000), remarks that "It is probably unique in presenting an effective and complete unarmed combat system in a format from which it would be actually possible to learn". In themselves de Hooghe's plates are remarkable, fully justifying Otto Benesch's description of him as "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the period, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era … one of the greatest illustrators of all time, comprehending within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque". Wrestling-master Petter's school of practical self-defence for the bourgeoisie on the dangerous streets of Amsterdam, clearly differentiates the book from the earlier tradition of wrestling books, such as the Ringbüchlein, or Fabian von Auerswald's Ringer-Kunst, where smiling contestants are shown engaged in a sporting contest. Iinstead the plates portray well-dressed gentlemen tangling with grimacing, sometimes armed, street toughs. Petter died shortly before publication, and the book was seen through the press by his widow, and his pupil Robert Cors, who explains the principles that lay behind his master's method; "The forces which were lent to the human understanding by nature, are not present alike in each art, and if they were, then they would nevertheless not be developed in the same way. Of two arts one is usually superior, this is in general the one based on knowledge. Most people do not seriously consider how they could secure themselves against all manner ofd abuse or assault, as might be levelled against them by evil-hearted villains, eager for violence. Our wrestler has studied this problem, first developing his mind, then looking for effective strikes and holds, by which one can defend against violent attacks with shoves, punches, or a knife. These he has practised diligently, and, to benefit the community, he has decided finally to compile this instructional book … Cruel Death has untimely taken him from us, before he could bring this project to conclusion. The images had already been prepared during his life, ordered and provided with explanatory captions to instruct the studious wrestler". By way of advertisement, Cors mentions that he is "prepared to instruct interested parties in these techniques for reasonable remuneration and be reached at the Witwe house of Nicolaes Petter on the Prinsengracht in the Gustavusburgh not far from the combat academy". Far from common institutionally, just 20 or so copies world-wide, with most of them in the Netherlands, and very rarely encountered commercially, particularly so in such wonderful, unrestored contemporary condition. This copy with an early anonymous bookplate and the later plate of Amsterdam doctor and bibliophile, Bob Luza, whose collection was sold in 1981.

        Volatiles from the history of Adam and Eve: containing, many unquestioned truths, and allowable notions of several natures

      London, printed for T. Bassett at the George in Fleet-street, 1674. 8vo., (8) + 72 + 75 - 87 + (1) + 88 - 89 + 89 - 188 + (4)pp., including final blank, text continuous despite pagination (see ESTC), blank strip cut away from foot of title-page but not near printed surface or ruled border, rather later calf-backed boards, sympathetically rebacked, spine fully gilt in compartments, with the early 20th century bookplate of Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield*>. Only edition. Wing P.1912. This is an off-piste little book by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (ca. 1613-1685), best known now probably for his works on minerals and mining. In his dedicatory piece to his neighbour, Leister Devereux, Viscount Hereford, Pettus observes, self-deprecatingly, that 'possibly, these excursions might have been more excusable to me in my youth, than in my age; but it is a solace to me, that I can be yet youthful in my notions .....'. * Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield was an extraordinary bibliophile. His principal library of some 13,255 volumes (including incunabula and manuscripts and a large part of the personal library of the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning), is now held by Brighton & Hove City Library.

      1674. Good. (MACHIAVELLI, Niccolo. Dacres, Edward, trans.) MACHIAVEL'S DISCOURSES UPON THE FIRST DECADE OF T. LIVIUS, Translated out of the Italian. To which is added his PRINCE: With some animadversions noting and taxing his errors. By E.D. The Second Edition much corrected and amended. London: Printed for Charles Harper at the Flower-de-luce over against St. Dunstans Church, and John Amery at the Peacock over against Fetter-lane, both in Fleet-street, M. DC. LXXIV [1674]. The two works in this volume, translated by Dacres, were first published separately in 1636 and 1640 respectively. The first combined edition was printed in 1663; and this is the second edition thus, of the combined edition, corrected and amended. Two slightly different title pages are noted for this edition: in addition to the publisher information, the first supplies bookseller information (to be sold by Thomas Burrell and William Hensman) and the publication date is given in arabic numerals; while the second, offered here, omits the bookseller information and has the publication date in roman numerals. Frontispiece portrait of Machiavelli, engraved by R. White. [xxiv],686,[2] pp., including the portrait. Octavo, 17 x 11 cm, contemporary leather boards, worn and rebacked, with endpapers renewed. All edges marbled. The Prince has a separate title page dated 1673. Many errors in numeration. Complete, clean, and very good overall. Although Machiavelli's writings in the original Italian, as well as his reputation, preceded Dacres' translation of the Discourses and the Prince to England, Dacre's translations gave wider exposure to Machiavelli's practical politics advocating councils based on political pragmatism and historical experience, and extended his influence on English political thought. Machiavelli's Discourses were of special interest at the time of publication in England because they provided a justification of republicanism. (Wing M135A).

        The works...consisting of those which were formerly printed: and those which he design'd for the press, now published out of the authors original copies. The fourth edition

      London: Henry Herringman (pr. by J.M.) Folio (30 cm, 11.8"). Frontis., [42], 41, [1 (blank)], 80, [4], 70 (59/60 skipped in pagination, text uninterrupted), 154, 23, [1 (blank)], 148 pp.. 1674 Cowley's collected poems in their fourth edition, beginning with a good impression of => the frontispiece portrait engraved by Faithorne, "an account of the life and writings" of the poet signed by T. Spratt, and two odes on Cowley's death by Thomas Higgons and Sir John Denham. Once considered the epitome of his era's wit, the author of "The Mistress" (verses in honor of love and various women, included in this volume) suffered a notable decline in popularity in subsequent years, prompting Pope's musing "Who now reads Cowley? . . . but still I love the language of his heart." And indeed despite the vagaries of reputation he has always had his worthy appreciators. Cowley's Pindaric odes are present here, as are the "Davideis" and "Davideidos"; also set forth are the "delightful little prose Essays (with verse interwoven)" for which The Concise Cambridge History of English Literature believes Cowley will most ultimately be remembered. Some sections have separate title-pages, bearing the same publisher and date information as the main Provenance: Front pastedown with small armorial bookplate and with bookseller's ticket from Cambridge, England. 17th-century mottled calf, rebacked at some point in the 19th century and again more recently with hinges carefully reinforced (inside); spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title label, covers showing the predictable acid-etching. Varying degrees of browning to pages; scattered incidents of worming in lower inner and outer margins, almost never affecting text. A handsome book in a binding both sturdy and attractive.
