        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. Judging by the scarcity of each in both insitutions and commerce, few have survived, making the condition of this copy all the more remarkable. OCLC locates only two copies of this edition, at Leiden and Rostock. . Quarto.

        DE VISITATIONE CARCERATORUM LIBRI TRES QUIBUS OMNIA AD VISITATIONEM, PATROCINIUM, & LIBERATIONEM CARCERATORUM SPECTANTIA EXPLANANTUR

      ROMAE: ROMAE TYPIS REBVERENDAE CAMERAE APOSTOLICAE , 1675. In folio. Dim. 34,5x24 cm. Pp. (152)+570+(2)125+(15). Peso Kg. 2,500. Edizione del 1675 dell'importante trattato sulle carceri romane scritto da Giovanni Battista Scanaroli (1579-1665) originario di Modena e vescovo di Sidona. Scanaroli, avvocato dei poveri a Roma e delegato della Congregazione per le visite alle prigioni, fu colui che con più competenza identificò le problematiche giuridiche ed assistenziali delle carceri romane nel XVII secolo Lo scopo principale dell'opera non era meramente giuridico, sebbene Scanaroli fosse competente in quell'ambito, ma una difesa dei carcerati, un tentativo di aiuto umanitario per migliorare la loro situazione. Scanaroli fornisce un'accurata descrizione della suddivisione interna delle carceri, ciò che accadeva e le varie situazioni a cui assisteva: usi e abusi; provvigioni per i carcerati, le meretrici; correzione; carcerazione dei figli, coniugi e clero; visite giuridiche; cauzione; le varie punizioni (supplizi, mutilazione dei membri, fustigazione, carcere a vita) in base alla colpa; le spese; testimoni; trattamento degli ebrei; alimenti. Una parte dedicata alle torture inflitte ai carcerati: Scanaroli analizza il passaggio da un tormento all'altro durante la tortura ed esorta ad ascoltare il parere dei periti per evitare eventuali decessi riportando casi realmente accaduti. L'autore riporta la testimonianza di un chirurgo delle carceri che descrive la procedura corretta da applicare nella tortura, indica ogni minima azione da compiere. Alla fine appendice con frontespizio proprio che riporta le varie bolle pontificie in materia; le varie tasse nelle varie carceri d'Italia (trasporto, spese di personale); decisioni della Sacra Romana Rota; affitto delle carceri di via Torre di Nona; decreti ecc... Bellissima xilografia a piena pagina che mostra un carcerato legato in trazione per la tortura della corda. Bella legatura in mezza pergamena settecentesca. Di grandi dimensioni. Antiche note manoscritte. Importante opera storica, tuttora di grande attualità. Raro, solo 11 copie censite su ICCU. Copertina settecentesca in mezza pergamena a cinque nervi con tasselli in pelle al dorso in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure e piccole parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in ottime condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e qualche pagina brunita. Lievi gore d'umidità marginali (all'angolo inferiore destro di quasi tutto il volume non inficianti il testo; al margine destro da pag. 85 sino alla fine; al margine di piegatura delle ultime 12 carte). Edition of 1675 of the important treaty on roman jails written by Giovanni Battista Scanaroli (1579-1665) from Modena and bishop of Sidona. Scanaroli, lawyer of poor people in Rome and member of the Congregation for visitations in prisons, with this work had the merit to identify juridical and assistance problems of roman prisons during the XVII century. The main aim of the work was a defence to prisoners, an attempt to help their situation. Scanaroli provides an accurate description of the internal division of prisons, what happened and the different situations he saw: usages and abusations; correction; imprisonment of sons, parents and clergy; juridical visitations; different punishments (mutilations of parts of the body, fustigation, life-long imprisonment) expenses; witnesses; treatment of jewish people; food. A part dedicated to tortures for prisoners: Scanaroli analyzes the passages to torments and esortates to listen to the opinions of technics to avoid the death of prisoners during torture. He also describes cases really happened and the testimony of a prison surgery who describes the correct procedure to apply during torture indicating each single action to do. At the end appendix with its own title page with the different decrees of Pope; the taxes in italian prisons (carriage of prisoners); decisions of the Sacra Romana Rota; rental of the prisons of Torre di Nona; decrees etc... Very beautiful full-page woodcut showing a prisoner during a torture. Very beautiful half parchment cover of the XVIII century. Big size. Ancient manuscripted notes. Important historical work, of great actuality. Scarce copy. Half parchment cover of the XVIII century with five nerfs and leather spine title labels in good general conditions slightly worn with little missing parts in the edges and spine. Binding in very good conditions. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings and some yellowings. Slight humidity stains in the edges (in the lower right corner of almost all the volume not ruining the text; in the right edge from pag. 85 until the end; in the folding edge of the last 12 pages).

      R. Scot, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswell/Richard Hogkinson, London. 1675, 1672. - Third edition. The first part was originally published in 1612 and the second in 1620; reprinted in 1652. Folio. pp [viii], 137, [v], 273. Full leather with what appears to be a nineteenth-century rebacking of eighteenth-century boards, raised bands lettered in gilt. Endpapers renewed. Thomas Shelton's translation is not only the first in English but also the first into any language. The first part, translated from the Brussels edition of 1607, appeared when Cervantes was still alive. There has been some speculation that Shelton may have known Cervantes but this is impossible to prove. Shelton's translation was until Motteux's translation of 1700 the most popular and still has its admirers, among them Samuel Putnam who produced one of the best translations of recent times.Two early ownership signatures on the title-page one of which has been rubbed away with some light damage to the paper. With the finely engraved bookplate on the front pastedown of Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941) who was a Liberal politician, author of several books on Middle English literature and a great bibliophile. Tipped onto the front free endpaper is a short essay, presumably in his hand, "Don Quixote revived in the person of Ignatius Loyola".Covers rubbed. Some spotting to prelims and last pages. Very good.
