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.

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.

The author notes sadly that Sundays were "now generally scorn'd and neglected by Anabaptists, Libertines, &c. who in an open defiance to Christianity and the Churches laws, designedly make choice upon that day to engage in the most servile works and drudgeries.

Christoph Schrader (auch: Christophorus Schraderus) wurde 1601 in Rethmar geboren und starb im April 1680 in Helmstedt. Er war ein deutscher Rhetoriker, Schulverwaltungsbeamter und Bibliothekar. Schrader hing der humanistischen Schule Philipp Melanchthons an und war der erste Hochschullehrer, der an der Universität Helmstedt Vorlesungen in deutscher Sprache hielt. Seine wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten befassten sich hauptsächlich mit der klassischen Philologie. Zu den Helmstedter Druckern namens Müller vergl. Reske ("Die Buchdrucker des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts im deutschen Sprachgebiet") Seite 368 ff. In unserem Fall handelt es sich um Henning Müller den Jüngeren, 1607 geboren, tätig von 1640 bis 1672, gestorben 1675, ab 1672 ist sein Sohn Heinrich David, geboren 1640, als Universitätsdrucker von 1672 bis zu seinem Tode im Jahre 1680 weiter aktiv. Es handelt sich hier um D I E "Standardvorlesung" zur Aristotelischen Rhetorik (Barmer in: "Barockrhetorik", Seite 440, Anmerkung 355). In zahlreichen Adelsbibliotheken der Zeit zufinden, so z.B. hier: "... Von dem Helmstedter Christoph Schrader (gest. 1680) besaß Boineburg dessen Ausgabe der Rhetorik des Aristoteles. ... Die Bibliothek des Johann Christian von Boineburg (1622-1672) zählt zu den großen privaten Büchersammlungen in einem Zeitalter wahrer Sammelleidenschaft. In der Bibliothek materialisieren sich die vielseitigen Interessen und Kenntnisse des Polyhistors Boineburg. Sie ermöglicht auch den Zugang zum Politiker Boineburg, der als Erster Minister unter dem Erzbischof und Kurfürsten Johann Philipp von Schönborn (1605-1673) die Außenpolitik des Kurfürstentums Mainz nach dem Dreißigjährigen Krieg prägte. Boineburgs Bibliothek gewährt zudem Einblicke in das konfessionelle Selbstverständnis eines der bekanntesten Konvertiten seiner Zeit.Darüber hinaus bildet die Bibliothek Grundlage und Gegenstand des ersten großen bibliothekarischen Entwurfs des von Boineburg geförderten Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716), der einen Katalog der Sammlung erstellte.Nicht zuletzt ist die Bibliothek Teil einer umfangreichen Stiftung durch Boineburgs Sohn Philipp Wilhelm (1656-1717) an die Alte Universität Erfurt.Auf der Grundlage des überlieferten Buchbestandes, des Katalogs sowie des Briefwechsels versucht die vorliegende Studie, ein Bild des Büchersammlers und -lesers Boineburg in seiner Zeit zu entwerfen. Sie rekonstruiert die Genese der Sammlung, beschreibt die Aneignung der Texte der Bibliothek durch Boineburg und stellt die individuellen Merkmale der polyhistorisch ausgerichteten Bibliothek im Kontext der privaten Büchersammlungen der Respublica literaria dar. ...

Sept. 1601 zu Rethmar geboren, wo sein Vater Johann S. ( um Anfang Juli 1638) 52 Jahre lang treu des Pfarramtes waltete. Seine Mutter Helene, eine Tochter des Pastors Jacob Rölich in Peine, verlor er schon in früher Jugend ( am 12. Mai 1607). Nachdem er den ersten Unterricht von seinem Vater erhalten hatte, wurde er im Herbst 1610 mit seinem älteren Bruder Heinrich auf die Schule zu Celle geschickt, die sie im J. 1618 mit der zu Hannover vertauschten. Am 16. October 1621 bezog er die Universität Helmstedt. Auffallenderweise sind nicht in diesem Jahre, sondern schon am 6. April 1616 Heinrich und Christoph S. aus Rethmar hier [423] immatriculirt worden. Daß sie vorübergehend 1616 in Helmstedt gewesen sind, ist möglich. Jedenfalls beginnt Christoph Schrader's Studienzeit hier erst später, da er am 24. Juli 1635 selbst schreibt, es sei im 14. Jahre, seit ihn sein Vater zuerst nach Helmstedt geschickt habe. Er wohnte hier anfangs bei dem Professor Berkelmann, dann im Hause des berühmten Theologen Georg Calixt, zu dessen tüchtigsten und begeistertsten Schülern er bald gehörte. Unter den Philosophen hörte er insbesondere bei Konrad Hornejus, Diephold und bei Heidmann, der ihn in das Studium der Philologie einführte. Durch Calixt bekam er wohl schon im J. 1622 das Overbek'sche Stipendium, das ihn in den Stand setzte, 9 Jahre lang sorgenfrei seinen Studien zu leben. Als im J. 1625 Krieg und Pest fast die ganze Hochschule auseinander jagten, folgte er einem Rufe Matthias van Overbek's nach Leiden, wo er am 23. October 1625 immatriculirt wurde und bei Daniel Heinsius, Gerh. Joh. Vossius seine Studien fortsetzte, vorzüglich auch bei Constantin l'Empereur, Wilh. Codde und zwei gelehrten Juden, David de Havo und David Haccohen de Lara, sich im Hebräischen vervollkommnete. Einige Monate weilte er mit Overbek in Hamburg. Nachdem er bereits einige Zeit Prinz Roderich von Württemberg, den Sohn Herzog Julius Friedrich's, im Lateinischen und in der Theologie unterrichtet hatte, verzichtete er 1631 auf das Overbek'sche Stipendium und trat ganz in den Dienst des Prinzen, den er nach dem Haag begleitete. Doch einen Ruf, als Hofprediger nach Stuttgart zu kommen, lehnte er entschieden ab. Das Schwabenland, die dort herrschende theologische Richtung, der Hofdienst hatten keine Anziehungskraft für ihn. Er meinte: Lieber der unterste Diakon in Helmstedt, als der oberste Hofprediger in Stuttgart. So kehrte er denn, nachdem er 6 Wochen noch in Wittenberg verweilt hatte, am 14. Juli 1632 nach seinem geliebten Helmstedt zurück. Zwar wurde er bald nachher nochmals von dort durch kriegerische Ereignisse verscheucht; er ging nach Celle, um dann aber im März 1633 zu bleibendem Aufenthalte nach Helmstedt zurückzukehren. Er wohnte wieder im Hause Calixt's, versah bei einigen Adligen die Stelle eines Hofmeisters und eröffnete mit großem Erfolge Privatvorlesungen, in denen er sogleich im Anfang 58 Zuhörer um sich versammelte. Am 24. Juli 1635 bat er um eine Anstellung an der Hochschule, da er sonst im Herbst zu seinem Vater zurückkehren müsse. Wenige Tage darauf wurde er von Seiten der Universität, die mit ihm eine tüchtige Kraft zu verlieren fürchtete, für den gerade freien Lehrstuhl der Beredsamkeit vorgeschlagen mit dem Bemerken, daß er dereinst in höheren Dingen, im Kirchenamte, wichtige Dienste werde leisten können. Das Gesuch ward bewilligt und am 22. October 1635 wurde S. als professor eloquentiae in die philosophische Facultät ein...

      1674. |~||~|EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED COPY SPECIAL PRINTING WITH PLATES IN SEPIA CARRACCI, Annibale. Galeriae Farnesianae Icones Romae in Aedibus Sereniss Ducis Parmensis ab Annibale Carraccioad Vetereum Aemulatione Posterorumq. Admiratione Coloribus Expressae cum Ipsarum Monocromatibus et Ornamentis A Pietro Aquila Delineatae Incisae. Illustrated with 46 engraved plates, most double-spread and most printed in sepia-coloured ink. Folio, 485 x 410 mm, bound in late seventeenth-, early eighteenth-century Roman speckled calf, gilt decorated spine. Rome: Jo. Jacobi De Rubeis, 1674. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a special printing with the large engravings printed fully in sepia-coloured ink. These grand prints reproduce the famous Annibale Carracci frescos on the piano nobile of the Farnese Palace in Rome. The ceiling and wall frescos were commissioned by Ranuccio Farnese and executed between 1597 and 1608 by Annibale Carracci, assisted by his brother Agostino and the artists Domenichino and Lanfranco. Carracci structured his "Love of the Gods" paintings for the Galleria Farnese after the Raphael's Loggia de Psyche and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Carracci's finished cycle for the Farnese Palace represented a pivotal change in painting, a style that moved away from the High Renaissance and anticipated the new Baroque style, which would dominate Italian painting well into the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Contents: A double-spread title-page printed in sepia, double-page engraved memorial portrait of Carracci atop ornamental tomb printed in sepia cut by Pietro Aquila, after the original drawing by Carlo Maratti, double-page engraved dedicatory allegorical scene incorporating the painter Carracci at center, cut by Pietro Aquila, after an original design by Carlo Maratti printed in sepia, double-page engraved dedicatory allegory containing portrait of Archbishop Francesco Maria Febi, head of the Farnese Pinacotheca, designed and engraved by Pietro Aquila printed in sepia, 20 double-page engraved plates of Annibale Carracci frescos from the Farnese Gallery printed in sepia, 2 full-page engraved plates by Annibale Carracci from the Farnese Gallery printed in sepia, 5 large double-spread engraved plates by Pietro da Cortona printed in sepia, 3 large double-spread engraved plates by Pietro da Cortona, 2 large double-spread engraved plates by Giovanni Battista Falda printed in sepia (one of Hadrian's Castello and the Ponte San Angelo the other of the Vaticana with the newly-constructed Bernini colonnade), 1 full-page floor plan and 7 engravings of the Vatican exteriors by Giovanni Battista Falda, 1 page "Dichiaratione" printed in three columns identifying altars, chapels, sepulchers, etc. on the floor plan, 2 double-spread engraved plates of interior Vatican monuments by Bernini (the Balduccino and the Barberini chapel) both by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi, and finally 1 double-spread engraving of the Caracalla obelisque mounted over the Bernini fountain cut by Franciscus Poilly. The first two large plates engraved by Pietro Aquila were after original designs by Carlo Maratti (1625-1713), who taught Aquila the art of engraving. The preparatory drawing for the allegorical plate is now preserved in the Musée du Louvre, Cabinet des Dessins. The preparatory drawing for Carracci's funeral monument in the Pantheon was also executed by Maratti. Aquila's seventeenth-century engravings of Carracci's mythological paintings depict the pursuits of love, including Hero and Leander, Galatea, Perseus and Andromeda, Diana and Endymion, Venus and Triton, Dione and Anchises, Aurora, Ariadne and the Chorus of Bacchus. Interwoven are the putti unifying the themes and Carracci's influential faux architectural and sculptural forms. The original palace decor included antique statues placed in the niches of the surrounding walls and portrait busts in the recesses above. These statues and sculptures were removed by Bourbons and were replaced by busts of Roman emperors. The original sculptures from the Farnese palace now reside in the National Archeological Museum of Naples National Archeological Museum of Naples and in the Capodimonte Museum Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Our volume not only reproduces Carracci's entire scheme of painted decoration, but the original sculptures as well. This volume is extra-illustrated with the addition of several related engravings including two spectacular Roman views by Falda, one of the Vatican behind Bernini's newly-constructed Tuscan colonnade and the other of Hadrian's mausoleum above the Ponte San Angelo, both printed in special sepia-coloured ink. Also bound-in are 8 engraved plates after Pietro da Cortona, 3 reproducing his masterpieces painted for the Sacchetti family, each of these printed in sepia. Some insignificant wear to edges of binding, professional binding repairs to hinges. Overall a fine copy of these rare impressions printed in sepia-coloured ink. We have been able to locate no other copies printed in sepia! PROVENANCE: Petrus Bulteau de Preville Miles, French bibliophile from Normandy with his 18th-century armorial ex-libris, engraved by P.

Erste Ausgabe. Europas wiedergewonnene Freiheit*** Erste Ausgabe des seltenen "Heldenspiels", veröffentlicht unter dem Pseudonym Alexandro Romano von einem nicht nachweisbaren Autor. Auch die Protagonisten Gabile und Salibert sind Pseudonyme, Anagramme für "Belgien" (Gabile) und "Libertas" (Salibert). Auch hinter den anderen "Personen dieses Heldenspiels" verbergen sich Anagramme und Pseudonyma, die aufgeschlüsselt gehören, bisher aber in der Forschung weitgehend unberücksichtig blieben: "Guwild, Herzog von Florida", "Leuthold, Herzog von Terraferme", "Orkulas, Herzog von Skandien", "Maxentius, Kardinal von Ubien", "Herbrand, Kardinal von Mymingrod", "Goldapfel, der Gabilen General", "Weditte, der Gabilen Geheimer Rat", "Milwel, des Maxentius Raht", "Klafmar, ein Postbothe" - "Der Schauplatz ist Riviera".Interessant ist, dass es sich um eine europäische Geschichte handelt, die in den Personen die Fürstentümer bzw. die Länder darstellt, die in Freund- oder Feindschaft miteinander Beziehungen eingehen, wobei das Christentum als einigende Kraft beschworen wird - eine Präfiguration zu Novalis berühmten Aufsatz.Der VD17 kennt zwei unterschiedliche Druckvarianten mit leicht abweichender Holzschnitt-Titelvignette (vgl. auch 1:086664M) und weist dem Autor Alexander Romanus noch ein weiteres Werk mit Bezug auf das vorliegende zu: "Untersuchung des bey jüngst gehaltener Frankfurter Herbst-Messe ausgegangenen Heldenspiels, Die Wieder-errungene Freyheit/ Oder Gabile und Salibert genennet, Muhtmaaßlich und ohne Theilhaftmachung gehalten von Wahremundo Neutrali".

        Fine large half-length engraving of this important choreographer and dancing master by François Chereau (1680-1729) after Robert Tournières (1667-1752)

      . Pécour is depicted seated at a table with an open book of dances in Feuillet notation. 417 x 294 mm. Slightly worn and soiled; minor creasing to area with letters below image; trimmed to plate mark. . Credited with 120 original choreographies, most for the theatre but many for social dancing, "[Pécour] was one of the finest dancers working under the celebrated royal choreographer Pierre Beauchamp. He is said in one source to have made his début as a dancer in a repeat performance of Lully’s Cadmus et Hermione in 1674. When, on Lully's death in 1687, Beauchamp left the Opéra, Pécour was appointed in his place. He gave up dancing in about 1703 but he held the post of ballet-master and choreographer at the Opéra until his death. His tutelage produced such outstanding dancers as La Fontaine, Subligny, Guiot, Prevost and Menese among the women and Blondy, Ballon, Dumoulin and Marcel among the men. He is credited with changing the ‘S’ figure of the Minuet to a ‘Z’, an innovation that helped keep the dancers in a proper relationship to each other and to the figure."

        Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti fatte da Francesco Redi Accademico della Crusca, e da lui scritte in una lettera all'illustrissimo signor Carlo Dati. Terza impressione.

Third edition, the first edition was published in 1668. "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be 'Esperienze intorno alla generazione degl'Insetti' (1668), in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from Aristotle and still considered dogma.

        Fine large half-length engraving of this important choreographer and dancing master by François Chereau (1680-1729) after Robert Tournières (1667-1752)

      Pécour is depicted seated at a table with an open book of dances in Feuillet notation. 417 x 294 mm. & & Slightly worn and soiled; minor creasing to area with letters below image; trimmed to plate mark. . Credited with 120 original choreographies, most for the theatre but many for social dancing, "[Pécour] was one of the finest dancers working under the celebrated royal choreographer Pierre Beauchamp. He is said in one source to have made his début as a dancer in a repeat performance of Lully’s Cadmus et Hermione in 1674. When, on Lully's death in 1687, Beauchamp left the Opéra, Pécour was appointed in his place. He gave up dancing in about 1703 but he held the post of ballet-master and choreographer at the Opéra until his death. His tutelage produced such outstanding dancers as La Fontaine, Subligny, Guiot, Prevost and Menese among the women and Blondy, Ballon, Dumoulin and Marcel among the men. He is credited with changing the ‘S’ figure of the Minuet to a ‘Z’, an innovation that helped keep the dancers in a proper relationship to each other and to the figure."

        La Defense du Droit de Marie Therese d'Austriche, Reine de France

      1674. Legal Foundations of the War of Devolution La Feuillade, Georges d'Aubusson de [1612-1697]. 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. * 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.

Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Attractive woodcut head-piece. Toning to text with light browning to margins, occasional spark burns. Upper corner clipped from title page, chips and wear to edges of a few leaves, no loss to text. Signature to head of title page and occasional notes in early court hand. An appealing copy. * Only edition. Some pleader's manuals, such as Rastell's Book of Entries (1564), were semi-official compilations by single authors. Others, such as the Liber Placitandi were collections drawn from various authors. Sometimes cited as Thompson's Entries, it was first published in 1671. Holdsworth considers it a fine example of the genre. The preface assures the reader that "[m]ost of the pleadings are Modern, having occurr'd in the Court of King's Bench, since his Majesties Happy Restauration; whereof many received Approbation under the hands of some of the best pleaders of the Age: (as by their Originals may be Attested).": To The Reader [iii]. Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:386. Sweet & Maxwell list a 1671 edition, but it appears to be a ghost. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:273 (96).

        A potentially very important Autograph letter from the recently appointed Inspector of Excise Revenue to Charles II's First Minister, the Earl Of Danby, on the issue of delayed returns into the financial state of the Navy.

      London 2nd December 1674 - Folio, single page written in Secretary hand but signed by Shales, addressed, docketed, some dustiness, has been folded for delivery, evidence of seal wax. In 1673, towards the end of the Third Anglo Dutch war, the English Navy was £1000,000 in debt; ships were worn out, compliment of serving men at its lowest for years, and fraud was rife. Thomas Osborne, Earl of Danby and First Minister, requested in March 1674 information on the Navy's financial condition. John Shales, recently appointed \inspector of Excise Revenue and previously Victualling Agent to the Navy at Portsmouth, writes that although partial information has become available he is as yet unable to file a complete report for lack of further data. He concludes by referring to a consultation between Danby and Samuel Pepys, who was at that time conducting his important strategic review of naval refurbishments and systemic abuses - "The Charge of the Navy continues its progression to a degree far beyond the Establishment which your Loxx (Lordships) has design'd to consult Mr Pepys."
