        Joannis Kepleri aliorumque epistolae mutuae: Epistolae ad Joannem Kepplerum Mathematicum Caesareum Scriptae; insertis ad easdem Responssionibus Kepplerianis ... Opus Novum, quo recondita Kepplerianae Doctrinae Capita dilucide explicantur ... ex manusscripta editum.Frankfurt & Leipzig: 1718. First edition.

      An exceptional copy, in the original publisher's interim boards, of the first printing of Kepler's scientific correspondence, edited by Michael Gottlieb Hansch, which also contains the first biography of Kepler. "The thousands of MS sheets left at Kepler's death went to his son Ludwig, who promised publication but lacked both the time and the scientific knowledge for the undertaking. After Ludwig's death the Danzig astronomer Johannes Hevelius acquired the collection and published a brief inventory in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1674. In 1707 Michael Gottlieb Hansch obtained the material with the intention of publishing it, and in 1718 he produced [with the assistance of Leibniz, ref. Caspar: Kepler, p.366] 'Joannis Kepleri aliorumque epistolae mutuae', a large folio vol. containing 77 letters by Kepler and 407 to him." (D.S.B. vol. VII, p.309). Among those with whom Kepler corresponded were Tycho Brahe, Galileo, Scheiner, Bayer, Scaliger, Harriot, etc. Many of the letters are lengthy scientific treatises. The work is divided into the following parts: an introduction to the history of mathematics and astronomy leading up to Kepler's time; "the earliest presentation of Kepler's life" (Caspar: Kepler, p.13); an index to the 16th and 17th century scientists mentioned in the letters; and an extensive bibliography of Kepler's writings; and the letters. (Brewster: The Martyrs of Science, pp. 252-254:) Kepler "left behind him twenty-two volumes of manuscripts, seven of which contain his epistolary correspondence. The celebrated astronomer Hevelius, who was a contemporary of Louis Kepler, purchased all these manuscripts from Kepler's representatives. At the death of Hevelius they were bought by M. Gottlieb Hansch, a zealous mathematician, who was desirous of giving them to the world. For this purpose he issued a prospectus in 1714 for publishing them by subscription, in 22 volumes folio; but his plan having failed, he was introduced to Charles VI., who liberally obtained for him 1000 ducats to defray the expense of the publication, and an annual pension of 300 florins. With such encouragement, Hansch published in 1718, in one volume folio, the correspondaence of Kepler, entitled 'Epistolæ ad Joannem Kepplerum'. The expenses of this volume unfortunately exhausted the 1000 ducats which had been granted by the emperor, and, instead of being able to publish the rest of the MSS., Hansch was under the necessity of pledging them for 828 florins". (D.S.B. vol. VII, p.309:) "Hansch had the MSS bound in vellum in 22 vols., which he cataloged briefly in Acta eruditorum, no, 57 (1714), 242-246; in 1721 financial difficulties forced him to pawn 18 of the vols. The other four- VII, VIII, and XII, which had formed the basis for his Epistolae, and VI, which was used for De calendario Gregoriano (Frankfurt, 1726)-eventually found their way to the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, where VI is codex 10704 and the three original vols. of letters have apparently been rebound into codices 10702 and 10703. Not until about 1765 were the 18 vols. rediscovered, and in 1773 Catherine II purchased them for the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. They are still preserved in Leningrad. Details of this odyssey are chronicled by Martha List: 'Der handschriftliche Nachlasz der Astronomen Johannes Kepler and Tycho Brach', 1961". Caspar: Bibliographia Kepleriani, 102; Honeyman 1805. Scarce.. Large folio: 402 x 270 mm. Entirely uncut in the original publisher's interim boards. Old circular woodcut stamp to the title page. Pp. [16], XXXVIII, [9], 704, [4] and 8 engraved plates. Some scattered browning throughout, offset and spotting to the plates (which is most likely usual for this work; other copies that we have been able to locate have been described as 'dampstained, soiled, spotted, and browned.' Quite scarce on the market, and even more so in such original and unrestored condition

        THE GOVERNMENT OF THE TONGUE. By the Author of the Whole Duty of Man, &c. The second impression

      Oxford at the Theatre in Oxford Oxford at the Theatre in Oxford, 1674. Sm. 4to., black turkey morocco tooled in gilt in an all-over design with drawer-handle tools, curls and flower head tools; decorated with silver paint. The spine is divided into six compartments by five raised bands, which are also tooled in gilt (echoing the covers), with silver paint. The title is gilt lettered in the second compartment from the top. One corner and the very head of the rear joint have been skillfully repaired. Marbled endleaves. The binding is the work of the Queen's Binder A and appears to be a twin of a copy of the same title (but the later, 1675, printing), given to the British Library as part of the Henry David gift [See: No 118]. Hobson and Nixon have had much to say about the forty years following the Restoration of King Charles II to his throne in 1660, which has been called THE GOLDEN AGE OF ENGLISH BOOKBINDING. Nixon points out that there were at least four Queen's binders; viz., A, B, C and D, who all started work in 1670, and all made use of the recently introduced drawer-handle tools and volutes with pointellé outlines rather than floral volutes much used by the other binders of the period. This is a FINE EXAMPLE on a most fitting book. Allestree was a man of extensive learning, of moderate views and a fine preacher. He was generous and charitable, of “a solid and masculine kindness,” and of a temper hot, but completely under control [Encyclopædia Britannica 11th ed.].

Then gode läsaren till tienst/ uthi thenna book författat. Wisingsborg, J. Kankel, 1674. 4:o. (4),176,178-304 s. Stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind, sparsamt guldornerad rygg, rödbrun titeletikett och rödbruna stänkta snitt (Nordiska bokhandelns binderi). Guldpräglade och blindpressade pärmbårder samt guldpräglade hörnstämplar. Ryggen ngt blekt. Genomgående lätt lager- och småfläckig samt med en aningen större fläck på s. 206-07. En reva i nedre marginalen på s. 188. En fuktfläck börjar framträda på s. 137 och ökar i intensitet mot slutet. Blyertsanteckningar av G. O. Adelborg på främre pärmens insida.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 457. Almqvist Johann Kankel 19. Utkom första gången 1667. Nils Matson Kiöping (ca 1621-80) var prostson och växte upp i Köping i Västmanland. Han förmodas ha varit syssling till både Per Brahe d.y. och dennes första hustru och hade med andra ord mäktiga förbindelser. Åren 1647-56 tillbringade han till sjöss i bl.a. holländska ostindiska kompaniets tjänst innan han återvände till Sverige. Denna andra upplaga är försedd med kapitelindelning och bl.a. har vissa hollandsfientliga passager strukits. Arne Forssell har skrivit om Kiöping att dennes "subjektiva framställningssätt förmodligen bidragit till hans berättelses gångbarhet bland allmänheten. Hans skildringar äro skrivna i för den tiden ovanligt korta och överskådliga satser, ej sällan kryddade med färgrika iakttagelser och drastiska vändningar." Resa nummer två, "till Ostindien, China och Japan", är en förkortad översättning av belgaren François Carons arbete om Japan som utgivits i original 1636. Olof Eriksson Willman (ca 1620-ca 1673) hade bl.a. varit kapten på regalskeppet Kronan och beskriver i sin resebeskrivning ett sällsynt besök i det för omvärlden stängda Japan. Hans och Kiöpings arbeten är de två första tryckta svenska egentliga resebeskrivningarna. Johann Kankel (1614-87) var född i Pommern och kom till Sverige 1664. Från 1666 fram till sin död förestod han Pehr Brahe d.y:s tryckeri på Visingsö. 1674 var hans mest produktiva år
