Thomas Hobbes
Zeidlerum and Lipsiae: Job. Frid and Joh. Wittigau, 1674. Written in Latin. Thomas Hobbes was one of the founders of modern political philosophy. His understanding of humans as being matter and motion, obeying the same physical laws as other matter and motion, remains influential; and his account of human nature as self-interested cooperation, and of political communities as being based upon a "social contract" remains one of the major topics of political philosophy. Hobbes was a champion of absolutism for the sovereign but he also developed some of the fundamentals of European liberal thought: the right of the individual; the natural equality of all men; the artificial character of the political order (which led to the later distinction between civil society and the state); the view that all legitimate political power must be "representative" and based on the consent of the people; and a liberal interpretation of law which leaves people free to do whatever the law does not explicitly forbid. Two works bound as one. First volume dated from COPAC using pagination and publisher. Preface present from the 1646 edition. Featuring an engraved title page, decorative head and tail pieces and illuminated capitals. CONDITION In contemporary calf binding. Externally, rubbed with wear to the extremities and spine. Slight loss to the tail of the spine and rear hinge is very slightly starting. Internally, generally firmly bound, although with the odd leaf working slightly loose. Light instances of spotting throughout and with some uncut pages. Ink signature to the front free endpaper. Ov … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bound in a contemporary English speckled calf with a spine divided by raised bands into 6 richly gilt compartments. The book-block is strong and the hinges hold very firmly. The leather upon the front hinge is lightly cracked, but the cords hold firmly. The boards themselves, the edges and the corners show only slightest wear. Internally, the leaves are toned, but generally clean, with ample margins and clear print throughout. There is light occasional spotting and little marginal staining, which remains quite unobtrusive. The title page show a very small burn hole not affecting text, the second F2 got a small burn-hole in the outer margin, not affecting text as well. The 27 folding engraved plates are excellent impressions, some browned a bit stronger. This is an unusually attractive example of a rare work. ---- Wing B 945; Babson 249; Wallis 358.4; Sotheran 5816 (2); DSB I, 475.

Anthony Wood
London: Sheldonian Theatre. Good Frontispiece intact: leather boards a little bereft but intact and attached:gorgeous capitals and decorative flourishes throughout. Anthony Wood was a curmudgeonly scholar of Oxford: he devoted his life to the study of the history of the institution and playing the bells. This is one of his books and it is a litany of various attendees of Oxford, what they did and brief biographical data. According to some, this was often scurrilous. A massive tome, the leather is rough, dry and scuffed (like the Author), the spine cracked and chipped, and there are a few tears to some of the pages. There is writing throughout, especially after the section labeled "Collegium Universitatis" where the various schools or colleges seem to be written at the top of each page in a neat hand. The material contained herein is fascinating, once one takes the time to translate, and the capitals, embellishments, chapter headings and such are gorgeous: beautifully designed and executed. The Frontispiece is classic with Charles II handing over the charter to the school to the accompaniment of angels and with Britannia (?) looking on. wonderful stuff. The first part is a year by year history of Oxford while the second is a history of the various schools. Fold Out Map in good shape with a little chunk missing at the bend but legible and all the actual "map" parts intact. Very Good Condition: Elephant Folio: 11 1/2" X 10" X 3": leather binding with pitting and scuffs and cracks although there is an embossed strip still visible: spine is ridged and banded with gilt lettering … [Click Below for Full Description]

Michael Sendivogius (Polish: Micha? S?dziwój; 1566-1636) was a Polish alchemist, philosopher, and medical doctor. A pioneer of chemistry, he developed ways of purification and creation of various acids, metals and other chemical compounds. He discovered that air is not a single substance and contains a life-giving substance-later called oxygen, 170 years before Scheele's discovery of the element. He correctly identified this 'food of life' with the gas (also oxygen) given off by heating nitre (saltpetre). This substance, the 'central nitre', had a central position in Sendivogius' schema of the universe. Daniel Stolcius in his Viridarium Chymicum (1624) praises Sendivogius as the author of twelve books. The most famous of these was his "Ne … [Click Below for Full Description]

1674 Manuscrit de 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 (23,2 x 16,5 cm) à l'encre rouge et noire de (12)-403 pp. (mal chiffrées 401) à 14 lignes par page, veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Manuscrit inédit décrit par Jacques Joseph Techener sous le numéro 164 dans le catalogue raisonné d'une Collection choisie d'anciens manuscrits (1862) : "Ces mémoires offrent de l'intérêt. On trouve réunis, dans un seul volume, des documents importants sur les plus célèbres généraux de l'Empire qui luttèrent contre les armées de Louis XIV" dont les portraits des Impériaux Ottavio Piccolomini d'Aragona, Jean t'Serclaes comte de Tilly, Matthias Gallas, Franz von Mercy, le comte Jean de Werth mais aussi Lamboy, Bek, Papenheim, Aldringhen, Gildehaze, Eingfort, Hasfeld et le comte de Souche. Rédigé en allemand sous le voile de l'anonyme vers 1673, le recueil fut traduit et dédicacé par Marc d'Orléans au Maréchal de Turenne l'année suivante : « Le hasard m'ayant donné ces mémoires assez particuliers, j'y vis d'abord que les mettant au jour, je ne pouvais les présenter à personne en France qui les reçut mieux que Votre Altesse, puisqu'aucun de ce Royaume n'y a plus de part qu'elle y en a. La construction de leur auteur, Allemand et soldat, m'en ôterait pourtant le dessein (...) ». En 1716, l'abbé René Richard mentionna le manuscrit dans son Parallèle du cardinal de Richelieu et du cardinal Mazarin en ces termes : « J'ai lu depuis peu dans un manuscrit du Cabinet de Monsieur Moreau de Mautour composé par un Seigneur Allemand traduit en François & dédié en 1671 A Monsieur l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Hobbes
1674. Written in Latin. Thomas Hobbes was one of the founders of modern political philosophy. His understanding of humans as being matter and motion, obeying the same physical laws as other matter and motion, remains influential; and his account of human nature as self-interested cooperation, and of political communities as being based upon a "social contract" remains one of the major topics of political philosophy. Hobbes was a champion of absolutism for the sovereign but he also developed some of the fundamentals of European liberal thought: the right of the individual; the natural equality of all men; the artificial character of the political order (which led to the later distinction between civil society and the state); the view that all legitimate political power must be "representative" and based on the consent of the people; and a liberal interpretation of law which leaves people free to do whatever the law does not explicitly forbid. Two works bound as one. First volume dated from COPAC using pagination and publisher. Preface present from the 1646 edition. Featuring an engraved title page, decorative head and tail pieces and illuminated capitals. CONDITION In contemporary calf binding. Externally, rubbed with wear to the extremities and spine. Slight loss to the tail of the spine and rear hinge is very slightly starting. Internally, generally firmly bound, although with the odd leaf working slightly loose. Light instances of spotting throughout and with some uncut pages. Ink signature to the front free endpaper. Overall Condition: Good.

JOHN RAY
London: H. Bruges for Tho. Burrell, 1674. First edition of the first book on English dialects, and the first English dialect dictionary; 12mo, pp. [14], [1]-178 (i.e. 148); blank leaves A1 and L4 are not preserved; title page printed in red and black; bottom margin trimmed close touching the date in the imprint; modern marbled wrappers. While on his botanical journeys throughout England, which brought Ray (1627-1705) everlasting fame, he had the opportunity to study local antiquities and customs, as well as local dialects. This work, together with his Collection of English Proverbs (1670), is an outgrowth of these travels. On one of his treks into Cornwall he made notes on the smelting industry, and recorded his observations (included in a separate section at the back of this volume) on the smelting and refining of silver, tin and iron. Also included is a brief section on husbandry. The sections on the names of British birds and fishes were largely the work of Francis Willughby. An expanded and much more common edition appeared in 1691. Keynes 23 ("one of his more important publications"); Alston IX, 1; Kennedy 10623; Wing R-388. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original [?] paper boards, untrimmed with fore-edges of varying sizes, book-stamp of the Furstenbibliothek on verso of title-page and last leaf. A very good copy. RARE. First Edition of this work exemplifying iatrochemistry. VON DER BECKE ON ACIDS IN THE BODY, AND THEIR ATTENDANT CHEMICAL REACTIONS. "First Edition of v. d. Becke's principal work, dedicated to the Royal Society. The author, a German physician (1648-84) was an exponent of Iatrochemistry, a medical theory ascribing all ills to the presence of various acidic bodies in the human body and therefore basing all therapeutic action on chemical reactions provoked by various medicaments. Apparently unknown to the usual authorities." - Duveen. "David von der Beck followed Helmont in holding that water or alkali was the matter of all things, while seeds or fire or acid were the formal principal. He was interested in the strange force of imagination and the causes of monstrosities. He believed that seeds contained specific ideas, and that ideas or characters remained in the bodies of animals after death. He accepted the resuscitation of plants." - Thorndike.

Hooghe, Romeijn de
"KAASMARKT ALKMAAR ""De Waegh en Kaes-Marckt Van de Stadt Alckmaer"",?ets met gravure vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1674, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41x60 cm. Bedrijvigheid bij de Waag en Kaasmarkt, op de voorgrond worden de kazen per boot af- en aangevoerd. Het linker huis voorbij de brug, ""de Witte-Os"" aan de Mient, is van boekverkoper A. Hafersou waar deze prent te koop was. Veeteelt was een buitengewoon belangrijke bedrijfstak in Noord-Holland. Na drooglegging van de meren bleken de polders minder geschikt voor landbouw, voor veeteelt echter wel. In vele steden in dit gebied zoals in Alkmaar, Purmerend en Edam bloeiden de vee- en de kaasmarkten. Alkmaar was in 1573, de eerste stad in Holland die een beleg van de Spanjaarden weerstond. Als dank daarvoor kreeg de stad in 1581 van de Staten van Holland het recht een kaasmarkt te houden. De voormalige Heilige Geest Kapel werd toen omgebouwd tot kaaswaag. Vanaf die dag werd toen in Alkmaar de kaas elk jaar vanaf mei tot Allerheiligen verhandeld op vrijdagen en zaterdagen. In die periode had iedere groep kaasdragers, ofwel ' 'veem', een eigen kaasweegschaal. Het devies van het Alkmaarse gilde was (en is tegenwoordig nog steeds): ""Een valse waag is de Heer een gruwel en daarentegen een vol gewicht is zijn welbehagen"". Interessant is ook het artikel uit de Canon van Alkmaar ""Waar de kaas bequaam ter Merrickt komt"" Romeyn de Hooghe (Amsterdam 1645 - Haarlem 1708) wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Nederlandse graficus uit de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw.

Thomas Hobbes
Zeidlerum and Lipsiae: Job. Frid and Joh. Wittigau, 1674. Written in Latin. Thomas Hobbes was one of the founders of modern political philosophy. His understanding of humans as being matter and motion, obeying the same physical laws as other matter and motion, remains influential; and his account of human nature as self-interested cooperation, and of political communities as being based upon a "social contract" remains one of the major topics of political philosophy. Hobbes was a champion of absolutism for the sovereign but he also developed some of the fundamentals of European liberal thought: the right of the individual; the natural equality of all men; the artificial character of the political order (which led to the later distinction between civil society and the state); the view that all legitimate political power must be "representative" and based on the consent of the people; and a liberal interpretation of law which leaves people free to do whatever the law does not explicitly forbid. Two works bound as one. First volume dated from COPAC using pagination and publisher. Preface present from the 1646 edition.

GOTTFRIED, Johann Ludwig
1674. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Johann Ludwig Gottfried was an early 17th-century German theologian and author. He is most remembered for his monumental work 'Historical Chronical.' While he also edited and paraphrased important works such as Ovid's 'Metamorphoses,' 'Chronicle' was by far his most extensive and time consuming piece. In fact, each portion was so popular at release that the work was continued beyond Gottfried's death by Abelin. 'Chronica' was the most comprehensive book of world events which included human history fused with ancient myths which were encompassed within the timeline of the Bible. Gottfried sought to combine pagan histories with holy and divine histories and did so beginning with Creation, touching on important kingdoms - Assyria, Persia, Macedonia, and Rome. The introduction by Gottfried himself states how his intention was to distinguish history from stories: "Because in all histories, sacred and secular, the accurate and specific listing of dates and years is very important, without which histories are as if lifeless and become like fables...thus I have sought to do my best in this matter so that readers may know properly in which year each story took place." (Varwig 2) This work is beautifully illustrated with incredible plates by Merian, which the Gentleman's Magazine refers to as 'the most remarkable transactions in the world.' Illustrations include Adam and Even in the Garden of Eden, battle scenes with self-mutilation and suicide, a city view of Ostend, varieties of birds fro … [Click Below for Full Description]
