      Coimbra, Na Officina de Joseph Ferreyra, 1675. - 20 pp. 4?, modern wrappers. Some browning. In good condition. Engraved pictorial bookplate of Victor d'Avila Perez. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION, very rare, of this sermon about service to worldly rulers vs. service to God. The Jesuit P. Antonio de S a (1620-1678) was one of the most famous orators of his time: Blake describes him as "orador de linguagem mui pura, de estylo correcto e elegante, e finalmente como um dos que mais se approximaram de Vieira." Born in Rio de Janeiro, he was a disciple of Vieira and served much of his career in Brazil, at Recife and Bahia. He also traveled to Rome and to Portugal - where he was so popular that he was almost forbidden to return to Brazil. Although his works are often reprinted, early editions are rare. None are listed in the Bosch catalogue, Azevedo-Samod?es, Ameal or Avila-Perez. The catalogues of the British Library, Palha and Monteverde list only one work each.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 757; @PerÌodo colonial, p. 314. Blake I, 306: without collation.

Contemporary calf worn, inner joint weak, scattered foxing, a few minor marginal notes and marks in an early hand, including a few sketches of the animals. One double page plate detached, a few with creases and other minor wear, large plate of the arc with repairs and strengthening to verso and creasing and a few small tears and loss to plate face, chipping to the page edges on a few signatures that are slightly loose and a bit of wear and a few repairs in the gutters, occasional minor worming, stain to a table making some text difficult to read, e few tears in the lower margin, some touching text but with no loss. Mostly clean and unmarked internally; a good copy overall. With engraved title and 18 plates, many double page and folding. Lacking the portrait of King Carlos and a folding map titled Post-Diluvian World. [14], 240, [14]. [2]pp. Graesse IV, 20, Ferguson I, 369 Though rooted in his orthodox view of the bible and his Jesuit faith, Kircher's work on the arc has many of his characteristic flourishes. He determines the size and shape of the arc, including the size of a cubit, and lays out the animal species aboard. Most animals were, conveniently, hybrids - e.g. giraffes were a hybrid of a camel and a leopard, leopards a lion and a panther - and lower animals would be reintroduced through spontaneous generation (a subject that was the cause of an extended argument between Kircher and Redi). The cross section of the arc is the largest plate in any of Kircher's many works. Size: Folio. Illustrator: Coenraet Decker et al. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos.

        THE PLANTERS MANUAL: Being Instructions For The Raising, Planting, And Cultivating All Sorts Of Fruit-Trees, Whether Stone-Fruits Or Pepin-Fruits, With Their Natures And Seasons. Very Useful For Such As Are Curious In Planting And Grafting.

      First edition. This is an unacknowledged translation of a French work, INSTRUCTIONS POUR LES ARBRES FRUITIERS, written by Robert Triquel (or Triquet) and first published anonymously in France in 1653. Cotton is best known as a poet and fishing companion of Issak Walton, but he was also a linguist and published several translations from the French, including the complete works of Montaigne. In spite of this, he also appears to have been something of a Francophobe, and in his preface, after recommending the superiority of their imported trees, feels nevertheless compelled to attack the French as being "altogether debauch'd by their effeminate manners, luxurious kickshaws, and fantastik fashions, by which we are already sufficiently Frenchified." That the best English pomology of his day was also being "Frenchified" goes without notice. Cotton was not the only English author to translate French books on fruit culture. Evelyn, most notably, had already translated Robert d'Andilly's LA MANIERE DE CULTIVER LES ARBRES FRUITIERS (under the English title THE MANNER OF ORDERING FRUIT TREES) and later also translated de La Quintinie. These books were particularly important for bringing to England the significant 17th century French advances in espalier cultivation and other practices. It was not until the 18th century that English growers could describe these new methods from sufficient practical experience on their own soil. Cotton's edition does offer one enhancement of the French original: it adds an appealing illustrated title page engraved by F. H. van Houe. On it is depicted a large field with several laborers engaged in a variety of agricultural pursuits. This engraving is found in at least two states. The earliest state includes the engraver's name in the lower right-hand corner; the second state does not include the engraver's name and has been reduced by roughly half a centimeter along the right edge. The copy offered here has the engraved title in the earlier state. Oak Spring Pomona 8; Henrey 42; Hunt 337. 8vo (14 x 9.5 cm); (viii, including initial blank) + 139 pp. + engraved illustrated title, inserted opposite letterpress title. In some copies the two final leaves, K7 and K8, include advertising. In our copy, like most others for which we can find collations, these leaves are lacking, and there is no evidence of their ever having been bound in. Contemporary blind ruled calf, scuffed and worn, spine and corners skillfully restored.

        LE PALAIS ROYAL DANS LA GRANDE RUË DE P?" À TURIN

      Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, dalla bella coloritura policroma coeva, eseguita a tempera ed acquerello; in lastra, sotto la linea marginale, titolo in francese e dati editoriali. Veduta prospettica di Via Po "contrada di Po", ripresa dall'esedra porticata di piazza Vittorio Veneto, e con la facciata di Palazzo Madama sullo sfondo. La via, animata da varie figure in costume d'epoca, conduce da piazza Castello al fiume Po (da cui prende il nome) immettendosi nella piazza Vittorio Veneto; fu aperta nell'anno 1675 per ordine del duca Carlo Emanuele II, su disegno di Amedeo di Castellamonte. L'immagine riproduce, con varianti, una tavola vedutistica, parte di uno dei più bei libri di feste del Settecento italiano: il volume, intitolato "La sontuosa illuminazione della città di Torino [...]", venne pubblicato nel 1737 a Torino, per i tipi di G. B. Chais, in occasione delle nozze fra Carlo Emanuele III re di Sardegna ed Elisabetta Teresa di Lorena. La coloritura è tipica delle vues d'optique, destinate ad essere esposte alla luce dello strumento ottico detto "lanterna magica". Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

Courcelles, a minister at Amiens, became chair of Arminian theology at the Remonstrant Seminary in Amsterdam after Episcopius, who founded the school in 1634. The famous Elzevir print shop published this volume edited by Philippus van Limborch (1633–1712), Courcelles' student and successor. The eulogy following Limborch's preface was written by Arnold Poelenberg (1628–66), another professor at the Seminary whose remarks are still considered the => most important source of information on Courcelles' life (1586–1659). The Latin text is printed in roman and italic with occasional Greek and decorated with handsome woodcut initials and tailpieces. The title-page, printed in red and black, features the printer's device of Daniel Elzevir, the Minerva.

        The Holy Bible containingthe Old Testament and the New, translated out of the original tongues

      Herbert# 719A, 1675, FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, very good,  4TO, 8.5 " x  6.5" x  3", a rare example that is lavishly illustrated with 240 engravings,: Oxford University Press has a rich history which can be traced back to the earliest days of printing. The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, just two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England. The University was involved with several printers in Oxford over the next century, although there was no formal university press. In 1586 the University of Oxford's right to print books was recognized in a decree from the Star Chamber. This was enhanced in the Great Charter secured by Archbishop Laud from King Charles I, which entitled the University to print 'all manner of books'. Delegates were first appointed by the University to oversee this process in 1633. Minutes of their deliberations are recorded dating back to 1668. The structure of Oxford University Press (OUP) as it exists today began to develop in a recognizable form from that time. The University also established its right to print the King James Authorized Version of the Bible in the seventeenth century. This Bible Privilege formed the basis of OUP's publishing activities throughout the next two centuries. From the late 1800s OUP began to expand significantly, opening the first overseas OUP office in New York in 1896. Other international branches followed, including Canada (1904), Australia (1908), India (1912), Southern Africa (1914). Today OUP has offices in 50 countries, and is the largest university press in the world.COLLATION AND CONDITION:GENERAL TITLE ENGRAVING, 1 page, an amazing engraving that represents the Transfiguration above a mountain inscribed Mt.

        Manuel astronomic, ou introduction aux jugemens astrologiques, contenant un abregé succinct, positif & familier, tant des ephemerides pour le reste de ce present siècle. Rouen, Jean Oursel (printer), Jean Lucas, Henry-François Viret, 1678. 2 parts in 1 volume. 4to. With astronomical tables (64 pp.), woodcut figures in the text and 1 woodcut volvelle dial, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Old sheepskin parchment, recased with new endpapers.

      Goldsmith, BMC STC French G-482; Houzeau-Lancaster 5299; Thorndike VIII, p. 334; Wellcome III, p. 128; KVK/WorldCat (3 copies); not in Krivatsky; De La Lande. First edition of a rare and remarkable "introduction to astrological judgments" carefully attempting to skirt along the edges of papal decrees that could be interpreted as prohibiting astrological predictions. It includes "ephemerides" giving tables of the positions and aspects of the sun, moon and planets for every year from 1675 (aspects 1678) to 1700. It then provides extensive predictions based on this data, intended as aids to medicine, agriculture, navigation and the making of horoscopes. The title-page cautiously notes that it provides these "sans neanmoins déroger au liberal arbitre, ny aux decrets de léglise Catholique". This wording is clearly a defence against any claim that might be made that such predictions went against the papal bulls of 1586 and 1631 concerning free will. There is also a brief treatise on talismans and a discussion of "sympathetic powder" and ink, supposedly written by Jean-Albert Belin (1610-1677). A second edition appeared at Rouen in 1689.With manuscript diagrams for the year 1651 on an endleaf and owners' inscriptions on the title-page. A small tear in fol. g2 occurred before printing, for parts of two words are printed on the folded-over flap. In very good condition, with the volvelle dial with its rotating disk and arm perfectly preserved.

      Amsterdam: By Hendrik Donkker, in Compagnie Met Jacob En Casparus Loots-man, 1675. Two parts in one volume. [4], 236, [2], 46pp, [16]. Woodcut diagrams to text. Contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt, with contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Marbled edges. Slightly rubbed, with small splits to upper joint at head and foot of spine and a little loss to lettering-piece. Small stain to lower-edge of text block. Paper flaw to Cc1 affecting a single word to recto, Dd1r (table) slightly shaved at foot. Cornelis Jansz. Lastman (fl.1620-40s), mathematician and Dutch sailor, Captain of the ship Pascaert in 1626. Appointed as an official examiner of nautical pilots by Amsterdam in 1619 and sometime nautical schoolmaster with rooms in the Golden Quadrant of the same city, Lastman appears infrequently in the history of Dutch navigation, but almost exclusively as an avowed expert. This detailed, fundamental and definitive work on the science of navigation, with an extensive nautical almanack added as an appendix, appeared in several editions between 1642 and 1715.
