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]

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. Hij was behalve doctor in de rechtsgeleerdheid en schr … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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. 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.

1674. THE WORKS Of Mr ABRAHAM COWLEY 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: Printed by F.M. for Henry Herringman 1674 * * * * Folio (12 x 7.5) [42], 41, [1], 80, [4], 70, 154, 23, [1], 148pp. Full blind-tooled leather (calf) Frontispiece portrait Fourth edition Rare, greatly preserved antiquarian edition of the works by Abraham Cowley (1618-1667), English metaphysical poet and one of the leading English essayists of the 17th century, with fourteen printings of his Works published between 1668 and 1721. In spite of the historical troubles of the times, so fatal to poetic fame, his reputation steadily increased; when, on his return to England in 1656, he published a volume of his collected poetical works, he found himself without a rival in public esteem.This volume includes his later works, the Pindarique Odes, the Davideis, the Mistress, and Miscellanies. The Mistress was the most popular poetic reading of the age, the last and most violent expression of the amatory affectation of the 17th century. Following the passing of Oliver Cromwell in 1658, Cowley took advantage of the confusion and escaped to Paris, where he remained until the Restoration brought him back to Charles' train. In 1663 Cowley published Verses Upon Several Occasions, which includes The Complaint. His pamphlet on The Advancement of Experimental Philosophy, 1661, preceded the foundation of the Royal Society. Cowley was buried in Westminster Abbey beside the ashes of Chaucer and Spe … [Click Below for Full Description]

An attempt is the first, and most important, of his Cutlerian Lectures, which contains ‘some of the most pertinent remarks about gravitation that were made before Newton’ (Allen Chapman, England’s Leonardo: Robert Hooke (1635-1703) and the Art of Experiment in Restoration England). In addition, the work also contains the first record of stellar observation in daylight. ‘This may well have been the first clear statement of what came to be called "Newton’s first law of motion"’ (Nicholas Kollerstrom, How Newton failed to discover the Law of Gravity, Annals of Science 56, 1999).

"When theatres reopened after the return of the Stuarts, it was by no means certain whether or not Shakespeare's plays would be part of the repertory of the Restoration theatres...It was mainly due to the endeavors of Sir William Davenant and John Dryden that Shakespeare's plays remained popular. Dryden admired Shakespeare as 'the man who of all modern and perhaps ancient poets had the largest and most comprehensive soul'" (Auberlen). Dryden's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest is a key example of the Restoration dramatist's efforts to reshape earlier plays to the tastes of the current time. His version of the romance was tailored to the preferred language and wit of the court, which had begun to favor more formal diction and a greater adherence to classical expectations of dramatic action.

SAMBUCUS (Johannes)
Antverpiae (Anvers), Ex officina Christophon Plantum, 1674. In-4 plein vélin d’époque, Page de titre en fac similé, mais complet de tout ses portraits. Belle patine. Johannes Sambucus savant Hongrois né à Tyrnau le 25 juin 1531 et mort le 13 juin 1584 à Vienne, immense érudit et grand voyageur, il fut l’ami intime de Lambin et Turnéb. Licencié en médecine à padoue il fit connaissance tout au long des 22 ans de son voyage les principales figures de la renaissance européenne, il collecta durant ce périple un nombre considérable de manuscrits anciens et l’objets de curiosités. Nommé historiographe de la maison de Habsbourg il servi sous Maximilien II et surtout Rodolphe II qui le tenait en grand estime, il rencontre Archimboldo et cotoie le cabinet de curiosités de Rodolphe II l’un des plus importants du XVIe siècle. Ses écrits sont nombreux et s’adressent à la philosophie, la littérature, l’emblêmata, l’histoire.
