Manuscript
1675. Seventeenth-Century Italian Manuscript on Censorship and Excommunication [Manuscript]. De Censuris [Spine Title]. [Italy, c.1675]. [500] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum with thong ties, early calligraphic title to spine. Moderate soiling and a few minor stains, two thongs lacking, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Light toning to text, occasional light foxing. Text in fine neat hand to rectos and versos of most leaves, notes to margins of first 80 leaves in later hand. * This canon-law manuscript on censure (censura), excommunication (scomunica), suspension (sospensione) and irregularities (irregolarita) was probably compiled around 1675. The careful organization and absence of corrections suggests this is probably a fair copy of university lecture notes. The marginalia indicates its later use by another reader.

Guillaume De L«isle (1675- 1726) Paris
Artist: Guillaume De L«isle (- 1726) Paris; Issued in: Paris; date: 1714 1675 - Artist: Guillaume De L«isle (1675- 1726) Paris; Issued in: Paris; date: 1714; - Condition: Very good; map of the eastern hemisphere.Guillaume De L«isle (1675- 1726 in Paris), was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa.t 27, Delisle was admitted into the French AcadŽmie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ÒGŽographe de lÕAcadŽmieÓ. Five years later, he moved to the Quai de lÕHorloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. DelisleÕs ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier GŽographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIVÕs son, a task for which he received a salary. Again, Claude De LisleÕs reputation as a man of science probably helped Guillaume. This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says Òonce authority was established, a geographerÕs name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakersÓ. In DelisleÕs case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his fatherÕs. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empireÕs claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many c … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREW (Nehemiah)
frontispice, [24]-215-[12] A Paris, chez Lambert Roulland, 1675, in-12, frontispice, [24]-215-[12] pages, [14] feuillets non chiffrés comprenant chacun une gravure en tête, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs et orné, tranches dorées sur marbrure, roulette sur les coupes, Première édition française du premier ouvrage de Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), ornée d'un frontispice allégorique, de 8 bandeaux gravés en tête des chapitres et de 14 planches hors texte comprenant chacune une gravure et un texte explicatif. 2 planches contiennent plusieurs figures : l'une les n° 3, 4, 5 et 14 ; l'autre les n° 6, 7, 9 et 11 ; elles sont, de sorte, répétées chaque fois que nécessaire, en regard du commentaire donné pour chacune des figures. L'Anatomy of Vegetables Begun fut publiée pour la première fois à Londres en 1672 ; cette traduction française, rare, fut effectuée avec l'aide de l'auteur. Grew fut, avec Malpghi, le fondateur de l'anatomie et de la physiologie végétales. Ce traité est d'ailleurs considéré comme le premier ouvrage sur le sujet, avec deux autres livres parus en 1673 et 1675 (An Idea of Phytological History Propounded et The Comparative Anatomy of Trunks). Les 3 ouvrages seront réunis en un seul volume en 1682 (The Anatomy of Plants).

DE JONGHE, CLEMENDT.
Amsterdam, 1675 circa. Incisione in rame, b/n, cm 39, 8 x 51,0 (alla battuta della lastra), 40 x 52 (il foglio), titolo entro festone in alto al centro, due stemmi nobiliari in alto (uno a ds. e uno a sn), legenda in tutta la parte bassa. Non diversamente da quanto era accaduto per altre vedute, il prototipo del Van de Velde viene abbastanza presto imitato e divulgato, in formato ridotto. Ancora una volta, la città in cui ha luogo la riedizione è Amsterdam e l’A. è il poco noto Clemendt de Ionghe, ricordato anche come Clement de Conghe (1624 – 1677). Nella riduzione operata dal de Conghe, di 1 /42 ca. di lunghezza, si conserva una certa cura dei dettagli, con le stesse aberrazioni prospettiche ed esagerazioni dimensionali dei primi piani. L’avere operato una riduzione così forte su di una veduta con una bassa linea di orizzonte, costringe l’incisore, per esigenze di equilibrio compositivo, a disporre una fascia di cielo alta almeno due terzi dell’intero campo topografico. Interessante è la legenda sottostante, con una composizione in quattro distici, ripetuta in tre lingue il cui originale sembra il testo in fiammingo – a giudicare dalla serrata ricorrenza delle rime – tuttavia ben tradotto in francese ma piuttosto maccheronico e oscuro in latino. Il testo celebra l’origine cumana della città e la ricchezza d’acqua e di porti. Ma: " La fortune est jalouse, et regrette mon bien / Ie suis chef d’Italie, et ne m’oblige a rien", è il tipico motivo locale, vivo nel seicento e ancora un secolo dopo, di una Napoli sfortunata ma altera. La fortuna dell’incisore fu prolungata dal su … [Click Below for Full Description]

(The Colony of New Sweden - Nilsson Papers)
1675. 40 items, 47 pages, various sizes ranging from small sheets to folio, in Dutch, both High and Low, Swedish and English, the documents have various condition issues, damp-stains, old tape stains, soiling, tears and loss, associated with over three hundred years of neglect, but they are generally legible. The collection of documents and papers, offered here, pertain to the earliest European settlers on the Delaware River - the colony of New Sweden, and one family of settlers in particular, the Nilsson family- Jonas Nilsson and his children. These settlers Swedes, Finns and Dutch constituted the majority of the population on the South River (as they called the Delaware) before the Quaker "invasion" that began with John Fenwick's group in 1675 and culminated with William Penn's 23 ships in 1681-1682. The bulk of the papers in this collection date from two periods when the colony was in transition: first, from Swedish to Dutch control, and, then from Dutch to English control. Paper and documents from New Sweden are exceedingly rare many of the records generated by the colony simply did not survive. Most of the materials which did survive have been housed in institutions for generations, if not centuries. Collections such as this one, essentially the three hundred plus year old Nilsson family papers, simply do not appear in the market. The collection contains the signatures and marks of many "ancient Swedes." The collection contains a document bearing what is only the second known signature of one of them: "Laurentius Caroli, Lutheran minister", Pastor Lars Carlsson … [Click Below for Full Description]

All'Altezza Serenissima di Francesco II d'Este decimo Duca di Reggio, Modona, &c.

Illustrano f.t. l'opera un antiporta allegorica, il ritratto del dedicatario Francesco II, e 15 tavole perlopiù ripiegate, il tutto inciso da Giuseppe Maria Mitelli dai disegni di O.Talami, pittore reggiano; mentre le firme di M.Augusta, P.Manzini, C.Carboni, V.Draghi, F.Torri indicherebbe l'inventore della macchina raffigurata. Splendido libro di feste reggiano, che descrive accuratamente l'incoronazione della Madonna della Ghiara. Le confraternite religiose convocarono i migliori artisti locali per progettare gli apparati festivi, macchine, archi trionfali, fontane. ''Ces planches sont dignes d'intéresser tous ceux qui veulent connaitre jusqu'où, au 17e siècle, pouvait aller la fougue décorative italienne.'' (Vinet). La tavola relativa alla macchina della Confraternita di S.Rocco è seguita da un'altra incisione, in alcuni esempl. sovrapposta, che raffigura il tempietto trasformato in fontana, con grande stupore degli spettatori.

Ce célèbre ouvrage sur les secrets de la Cabale et les mystères de la Rose-Croix, dit-on, coûta la vie à son auteur, qui fut assassiné trois ans après la parution, sur la route de Lyon en plein jour, à l'âge de 38 ans. Une suite est parue 35 ans après la mort de l'auteur. L'histoire est reprise par G. de Nerval dans le chapitre sur Cazotte des "Illuminés". ¶ Wolfstieg n°42465 - Caillet 7707 (ne cite que la réédition de 1691) "Cet ouvrage fit, dès son apparition, grand bruit. A cause des satires... et plaisanteries à propos des amours des sylphides avec les démons incubes, de la manière don Gabalis interprétait le premier péché d'Adam et racontait l'infortune de Noë fait eunuque par Cham pendant son sommeil, des mystères profané de la Rose-Croix, des secrets de la Cabale tourné en ridicule, l'abbé de Villars fut privé du droit de prêcher et son livre condamné. On prétend même que cet écrit coûta la vie de son auteur ...." - Dorbon n°3143 (ne cite que la réédition de 1693) - Guaïta n°1905 "Edition rare, l'une des premières, donnée sans nom d'auteur sous la rubrique à Cologne chez P. Marteau".

Op de kaart zijn cartouches met allegorische figuren afgebeeld met genummerde aanwijzing van namen van straten en gebouwen.Aan het eind van de 16de- en in de eerste helft van de 17de-eeuw werd de bebouwing in het middeleeuwse stadsdeel sterk verdicht. Door overbevolking, verschuivingen in de sociale samenstelling van de bevolking en functieverandering van huizen en grachten, werden erven en binnenplaatsen volgebouwd met achtersteegjes; de zgn. poorten. De daaraan gelegen arbeiderswoningen waren zeer klein en vaak van slechte kwaliteit. Om te kunnen voorzien in het steeds nijpender gebrek aan ruimte werd de stad in de eerste helft van de 17de eeuw in een aantal uitleggen fors uitgebreid.

Pérez, Manuel.
The first work in this volume is a handbook for priests with Nahuatl-speakers as parishioners; it contains a summary of "the five sacraments that ministers of the gospel administer here in America. With all the moral cases that occur among Indians." Principally in Spanish, it has the prescribed responses of the parishioners in Nahuatl. The second work is a Nahuatl grammar, this being its only colonial-era edition. Pérez was a professor of Nahuatl at the Royal University of Mexico and one of the country's leading experts in the period 1675-1725. Provenance: On the front fly-leaf the late 18th-century ownership inscription of Lic. Manuel Villa telling => where he purchased the book and its cost and imploring anyone who borrows it to return it; early 19th-century ownership signature on title-page of Jose Mariano Perdomo; 20th-century blind pressure-stamp on title-page of Sotomayor Vaqueiro. At the rear of the volume is a manuscript note in a clear hand stating the Bachiller Jose Mariano Perdomo had completed two years of study of theology.

OGILBY, John.
1675 - London, c.1675, second state. Coloured. 330 x 445mm. The complete route, with a spur from New Malton to Scarborough. Plate 100 from Ogilby's 'Britannia', the first national road-atlas of any country in Western Europe. It was composed of maps of seventy-three major roads and cross-roads, presented as trompe-l'œil scrolls, each with a decorative title cartouche, this being one of the four plates with the way-wiser (surveyor's wheel). It was the first English atlas on a uniform scale, at one inch to a mile, and the 'mile' Ogilby used became the national standard, the statute mile of 1,760 yards. Ogilby claimed that 26,600 miles of roads were surveyed in the course of preparing the atlas, on foot using the surveyor's wheel depicted in the cartouche, but only about 7,500 were actually depicted in print. It was only after the 'Britannia' that roads started being shown on county maps. Second state, with plate number bottom right, in this case uninked.
