         Joseph Keble

      1676. Book: The Statutes at Large from MDCXL until this Time, by Joseph Keble of Grays-Inne, Esquire, London, printed by The Assigns of John Bill and Christopher Barker, His Majesties Printers, Folio, (9½" x 15"), black letter text, printed marginalia, and wood-cut royal coat of arms on title page. Occasional contemporary marginal notes in ink, perhaps indicating an update amendment. Later plain calf, worn, recased (too narrow) leaving boards tight. Title page repaired without loss of text but with loss of border to corner, and similar occasional repairs to corners of first forty leaves, otherwise clean. A reasonable copy of a very rare and important text. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into 17th century British law, with a huge range of topics covered, including trade regulations, forestry, the press, theft, coinage, gambling, a detailed act for rebuilding London after the fire, financing the monarchy, regulation of Parliament, duty, sentencing and fines, government of the navy and so on. Keble wrote a number of important accounts of statutes which are relatively common. This rare volume covers one of the most controversial and interesting periods in English history.

         Ludovico Magno theses ex universa philosophia dicat et consecrat Ludovicus a Turre-Arverniae Princeps Turennius. Propugnabit in aula Colleg. Claromontani Societ. Iesu . Anno MDCLXXIX.

      Jesuit College 1676 - La Tour d’Auvergne, Louis Charles de, Prince de Turenne. Ludovico Magno theses ex universa philosphia dicat et consecrat Ludovicus a Turre-Arverniae Princeps Turennius. Propugnabit in aula Colleg. Claromontani Societ. Iesu . Anno MDCLXXIX. [Paris, 1676]. Folio. 15 engraved plates on 8 leaves, including engraved title, dedication, engraved portrait of Louis IV by L. Cossin after Sevin, and 12 engraved plates celebrating the king’s triumphs with 36 aphorisms and 48 emblematic devices of which 28 are by Claude François Menestrier. Red morocco, gilt. A sumptuously illustrated demonstration of the art of allegory depicting the campaigns of Henri de la Tour d’Auvergne, vicomte de Turenne (1611-75) on behalf of, and latterly with, Louis XIV. The suite of plates is issued by the Jesuit College, and comprises the title, set on an ermine mantle placed before the arms and symbols of the sun king; it is signed by the artist (Pierre-Paul Sevin), the engraver (L.Cossin), and calligrapher (René Michault). The text, a treatise on rhetoric by Turenne’s nephew, is dedicated to the martial exploits of Louis XIV. The epistolatory dedication by P.de La Rue is followed by the royal dedicatory portrait within allegorical surround and 12 plates (on 6 leaves) each containing three philosophical maxims by P. Fr. Nepveu bordered by richly ornate engravings: these comprise a head-piece vignette illustrating and naming the campaign, a tail-piece in cartouche or tablet with brief summary of the main events of the action; either side are 2 emblematic devices (in all 48, of which 28 are attributed by Praz to Claude-François Menestrier). Linking the illustrations are an extraordinarily inventive array of pagan and Christian figures, mythical creatures, symbolic instruments, grotesque ornaments, and floral and foliar decoration. The Jesuit, Claude-François Menestrier (1631-1705) was particularly renowned for his treatises on the art of devices and emblems. He also deployed his encyclopaedic knowledge in devising pageants, ceremonies, ballets, armorial bearings and games of wit for the king and courtiers. Of the artists named on the title, the painter, Pierre-Paul Sevin, was notable for illustrating the events of the reign of Louis XIV and employing use of late Baroque symbolism; the calligrapher, René Michault, mentioned by Benezit as the author of an allegory on Louis XIV, is considered one of the best pupils of the great calligraphic master Jarré. Well preserved. The only edition of a magnificent example of the art of imagery which dominated the period. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer

      Cantabrigiae : Excudebat Joan. Hayes . : Impensis Guli. Morden bibliopolae, 1677, 1676. - 1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer Origen was a 3rd-century Greek scholar and early Christian theologian. He was a prolific writer known for his biblical exegeses, philosophy, and sermons, and was one of the most influential figures in early Christian asceticism. (Finn, 100). Origen’s final treatise, ‘Philokalia : Contra Celsum’ or ‘Against Celsus,’ was a response to a literary attack on Christianity by an unknown pagan philosopher named Celsus. Saint Ambrose requested Origen write this book, a book that referenced Greek philosophers, poetry, and the Bible as a rational basis for holding steadfast to the Christian faith. (Heine, 127). Origen’s response is considered to be the ultimate apology of Christianity. ‘Philokalia’ is a collection of the original experts from Origen’s work. This 1677 edition was produced by Cambridge fellow William Spencer. Spencer made vast and significant improvements to the Latin translation originally made by Czech writer Sigismund Gelenius in 1557. Subsequent editions would continue to use the William Spencer translation and notes, even though not all editions are nearly as desirable or accurate.

With engraved allegorical title-page, engraved portrait, 4 half-page illustrations and 43 engraved plates (20 double-page) after the author. (12),328; 253,(23) pp.First edition. - Wouter Schouten (1638-1704) spent 7 years as a physician in the service of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the East 1658-1665. His travel-account stayed very popular for a long time because of his ample and vivid descriptions of the countries, the different peoples and anything of note concerning the animals, plants, etc. of Java, Amboyna, Ternate, Celebes, Cape of Good Hope, coast of Coromandel, Malabar, Persia, Arabia, Ceylon, etc. With fine engraved views of Batavia, Ternate, Malacca, Makassar, Colombo, Cape of Good Hope etc. by C. Decker and J. Kip. Most of them are the first accurate topographical views of these towns. Because of the bad weather the fleet arrived on the return voyage in Bergen (Norway), where Schouten eyewitnessed the attack by the English in 1665. 'Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions' (Howgego p.947). 'As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions' (Lach, Asia in the making III, p.955). - Occasionally some minor staining, margins of 1 plate restored with loss of very small part of the image, added a plate index in manuscript. - A good copy of the rare editio princeps.Tiele 990; Cat. NHSM I, p.174; Landwehr, VOC, 283; Mendelssohn II, p.279-80.

         Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) [TAX CODE FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF MANTUA 1676-1679]

      Mantua (Mantova): Ha'Achim B'nei Rabbi Yehoshua M'Prushah (The Brothers, the Sons of Rabbi Yehoshua, from Perugia), 1676. First edition. Loose leaf. vg. Small quarto. Approximately 8.5x6.5". 12pp. Pages uncut. The Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) was the tax code for the Jewish community of Mantua. These tax regulations were first published in 1588 and continued to be published at various intervals until the end of the 18th century. During certain periods a new revised code was published while in other instances the standing regulations were simply renewed and extended.* This publication is for the years 1676-1679, during the rule of Duke Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga. The Order of Assessment deals in detail with the variety of subjects related to taxation. These include: types of taxable property and income as well as exceptions, minimum taxable amounts, and those based on various goods and types of businesses. As an example, bankers or moneylenders would be responsible for a different tax rate than an artisan or a merchant. The Jewish community would calculate the total tax liability of the community and extrapolate the various sub-rates for individuals as based on the above factors for the given period. Also discussed are how the tax assessors should be elected and operate. At any given time there were usually three assessors elected by the community to serve for terms of three years. It would be these individuals who would be responsible for formulating the updated tax code, with approval of the ruler. Text printed in Hebrew Rashi script. Pages with some minor creasing along the edges. Sporadic light water stains and/or smudges along the edges of some of the pages. Pages in very good condition overall. * "History of the Jews of Mantua" (Simonsohn) *Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga (1652 - 1708) was the only child of Duke Charles II of Mantua and Montferrat, and the last ruler of the Duchy of Mantua, of the Gonzaga family. He ruled at a time when both the French and the Austrian Empires were vying for power in Northern Italy. "Ferdinando Carlo acquired a name for dissipation and squandered the money in the treasury in his pursuit of pleasure" and "he extorted money from the [Jewish] community, bleeding them to an extent that was unprecedented in the whole history of relations between the Dukes of Gonzaga and their Jewish subjects. - "History of the Jews of Mantua" by Shlomo Simonsohn, p.67 and 69.

      Friburgi, Apud Henricum Cunrath (Angaben fingiert), 1676. - 26 nn. Bl. 4° (19,8 x 16,3 cm). Moderne Interimsbroschur mit Leinenstreifen am Rücken. Johannes Leyser oder Lyser, 1631-84, Sohn des Polykarp Leyser II und damit Abkömmling einer bedeutenden Gelehrtenfamilie, geboren in Leipzig, gestorben irgendwo zwischen Paris und Versailles nach langer Zeit des Umherirrens in ganz Europa, wird gelegentlich und fälschlich als Pseudonym des Schauspielers, Musiker und Dichters Johann Peter Theodor Burmeister (1804-1870) aufgelöst, wohl weil dieser unter seiner zahlreichen Pseudonymen sich auch Johann Peter Lyser nannte (vgl. B. Pünjer in ADB, 18, S. 526f - Eintrag unter dem Vater; vgl. auch Eymer 50). Leyser, studierter Theologe und Lutheraner, war lange Vorsteher der Landesschule in Schulpforta, die zwei Jahrhunderte später ein weiterer rebellischer Eliteschüler, Friedrich Nietzsche, besuchte. Leysers Anschauungen der Notwendigkeit von Polygamie als natur- und gottgegeben erzwangen den Bruch mit dem Vater, der Familie und der Gesellschaft insgesamt, die im Gegenzug seine Schriften verbot und verbrannte. Hayn/G. VI, 235: Jöcher II, 2629f. (Weller I, 36 - Druckort nicht aufgelöst). Bei dem Drucker "Cunrath", dessen Name leicht die Assoziation zum dem des berühmten Alchemisten Khunrath erlaubt und damit einer Mystifikation Vorschub leistet, handet es sich möglicherweise um den Hamburger Drucker Henricus Künrath, tätig 1670-93 (vgl. Gruys/de Wolf 48), damit wäre "Friburgus" die "Freie" Stadt Ham"burg". Einige kleinere Randläsuren; wasserrandig; fleckig und angegraut; Unterstreichungen von alter Hand. DE

         Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema di Perlone Zipoli.

      Stamp. Gio. Tomm Rossi, In Finaro [ma Firenze] 1676 - In-12, pp. (48), 300. Raffinata legatura firmata Trautz-Bauzonnet in marocchino rosso, piatti incorniciati da triplice filetto in oro, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi, dentelle e tagli dorati. Ex libris Thomas Gaisford (vendita pubblica 1890, n. 1129). Edizione originale di questo salace «scherzo» fatto di 12 cantari in ottave, pubblicato dall'autore sotto lo pseudonimo -parzialmente- anagrammato di «Perlone Zipoli». Il nostro esemplare, conservato in una raffinata legatura di Trautz-Bauzonnet, ha l'ulteriore considerevole pregio di comprendere i 16 fogli contenenti il contumelioso discorso introduttivo di Giovanni Cinelli (che fu ispirato, o probabilmente dettato, da Antonio Magliabecchi), inteso a lacerare il merito di alcuni letterati toscani allora viventi. Tale discorso, impresso alla macchia, venne unito ai soli primi 50 esemplari, molti dei quali vennero poi distrutti per deliberata volontà del Magliabecchi. L'opera, come è noto, fu pensata dal Lippi come parodia della «Gerusalemme Liberata» e alcuni episodi traggono ispirazione dal «Cunto de li Cunti» del Basile, che il Lippi aveva conosciuto attraverso Salvator Rosa.

         Pianta di Roma disegnata e incisa da Giov. Battista Falda nel 1676

      Roma: M. Danesi, [1965]. 148x150 cm. (stesse misure dell'originale).Pianta ripiegata, contenuta in una cartella editoriale che presenta qualche leggerissima abrasione e alcune piccole mancanze. [M500] Bellissima ristampa di una delle più celebri raffigurazioni cartografiche della città di Roma. Venne  pubblicata nel 1676 col titolo "Nuova pianta et alzata della città di Roma con tutte le strade, piazze et edificii de tempi, palazzi, giardini et altre fabbriche antiche e moderne come si trovano al presente nel pontificato di N.S. Papa Innocentio X con le loro dichiarationi nomi et indice copiosissimo". E' composta da dodici riquadri montati insieme su tela che compongono la pianta. Giovanni Battista Falda (Valduggia 1643 - Roma 1678). Uno dei massimi incisori della sua epoca. Nato in provincia di Vercelli, dimostrò presto inclinazione e capacità per il disegno. Venne quindi messo a bottega presso un pittore locale, e poi, a 14 anni, mandato a Roma presso uno zio che lo segnalò a Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Molto maggior rilievo ebbe tuttavia, nella formazione e nella successiva attività del giovane Falda, l'incontro con il tipografo Giovan Giacomo De Rossi titolare di una delle più note stamperie romane. Lì ebbe l'opportunità di affinare l'arte incisoria e con il suo mentore lavorò praticamente per tutta la sua breve vita.

         History of the Grecian War

      Second Edition of This Translation by Thomas Hobbes.THUCYDIDES. HOBBES, Thomas, [translator]. The History of the Grecian War. In Eight Books. Written by Thucydides. Faithfully Translated from the Original by Thomas Hobbes of Malmsbury. With Maps Describing the Countrey. The Second Edition, much Corrected and Amended. London: By Andrew Clark for Charles Harper, 1676.Stated second edition of this translation by Thomas Hobbes. Quarto (11 7/8 x 7 1/2 inches; 301 x 190 mm). [2, blank], [46], 357, [1, publisher's ads], [10, table] pp. Complete. With additional engraved title-page, one engraved folding map, two double page engraved maps and two engraved plates. Title-page printed in black and red.Pforzheimer notes the existence of two states prior to our 1676, 1629 (Henry Seile) and 1634 (Richard Mynne), however "In 1634, Seile apparently sold the remainder copies of this edition to Richard Mynne who reissued them with a cancel engraved title in which the imprint reads: 'Imprinted for Richard Mynne in Little|Brittaine at the signe of :S:Paul.|MDCXXXIV.|'" (Pforzheimer, 493). Further in our research, we see that the British library also notes a copy with the date 1648 (Laurence Sadler) which is not mentioned in Pforzheimer. The first three earliest dated copies 1629, 1634 and 1648 all have the same general title and pagination, whereas our present copy 1676 have a new general title and a completely different pagination. We believe that the 1648 copy was also just a changed title-page and therefore making these three copies the first edition just with different title-pages, and our 1676 copy the true second edition.Contemporary full brown paneled calf. Repairs to front and back joints and the head and tail of the spine. Boards ruled in blind. Red morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. Spine stamped in gilt. All edges speckled red. Some small bit of worming to outer fore-edge margin starting at signature Ss through the end, just occasional affecting marginal notes. A small dampstain to top margin. Maps bound in tight. Outer edges trimmed close on engraved title-page and the double page maps. Small burn hole to top margin of the map of Sicele. Previous owner's book plate on front pastedown. Overall a very good copy.Hobbes's translation of Thucydides, first published in 1629, was the first English translation to be made directly from the original Greek text.Hobbes also drew the map of ancient Greece. It was his first published work and was intended to expose, through the example of the Peloponnesian Wars, the evils of popular government.ESTC R11589. Macdonald and Hargreaves.
