        The Province of Ulster Described

      Performed by John Speede and are to be solde by Thomas Bassett in Fleet Street, and Richard Chiswell in St Pauls Church yard, [1676]. - Speed's map of Ulster Double page engraved map with hand colouring. A map of Ulster, with an inset map of Enniskillen Castle. Enniskillen would have been known in Speed's times for its role in Irish rebellions against English rule; it was taken after a siege in 1594. John Speed (1552-1629) was the outstanding cartographer of his age. His 'Theatre of Great Britain' was the first atlas of the British Isles: Speed prepared the maps himself about two years before they were published. His maps and books dominated the seventeenth-century English market. After Speed's death, the English printers Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell eventually acquired the plates, and decided to reprint Speed's work in 1676. They reset the text, made some corrections to the maps and inserted their imprints on the plates. Bassett and Chiswell's work was a success: 'Next to the First Edition, this was the most important folio edition of the 'Theatre' (and probably the largest printing) - (Baynton-Williams). 379 by 512mm. (15 by 20.25 inches). Ashley Bayton-Williams, Subsequent Ownership of Speed's Plates, MapForum.

        Theologiae vere Christianae apologia

      Amsterdam: Typis excusa pro Jacob Claus, 1676-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. First edition of Barclay's Apology for the True Christian Divinity. Collated: [24], 378, [25] pages. Contemporary calf, Cambridge style, raiased bands, modern red leather spine label. Rehinged and rejointed, lacking front flyleaf, scattered toning and foxing throughout. Owners signature of Latham Clarke, 1676 on title page.<br> Robert Barclay was one of the most famous exponents of the Society of Friends. Barclay wrote in a time when Friends were facing serious persecution and potential destruction. "Robert Barclay made Quaker thinking logically defensible when the movement was only about a quarter of a century old. Some think he saved it from extinction." (Graves, Robert Barclay, Champion of Quaker Ideal). "The Apology remains the classic statement of Quaker principles." ODNB; Smith I, 182. "This early and enduring exposition of Quaker beliefs defined Quakerism as a religion of the 'inner light.' Arguing against both Roman Catholicism and traditional Protestantism, including Anglicanism, Barclay asserted that neither the church nor the Scriptures could claim completeness or ultimate authority and that both were secondary to the work of the Holy Spirit, "the Inner Light" in the believer." See: Copeland, Paul. "Robert Barclay : Who He Was and Why He Matters. Part 1," The Australian Friend, 1206 June 2012, Issue. Refs: Evans 10950; Wing B-736A. <br> Long note from Stephen Gould, dated 1830, on proceeding page. Gould's note partially bleeds through to the half title. Gould writes that this book belonged to his maternal great, great grandfather, Latham Clarke (who lived in Portsmouth, Newport RI). Latham Clarke (1645-1719) was the son of Capt. Jeremiah Clarke, a Quaker governor of Rhode Island (served 1648) and the brother of another Rhode Island governor. He goes on to give additional genealogy and history of who owned this book. (After Latham Clarke, his son Samuel Clarke (1686-1714), then his daughter Mary Clarke (b. 1715), who married Stephen Wanton of Newport. The book then passed to Hannah Wanton, Mary's daughter (who married James Gould). Stephen Wanton Gould (1781-1838) was a Quaker clockmaker in Rhode Island. Gould published extracts from the records of monthly meetings, 1676-1707, held by Rhode Island Quakers.

        Theologiae verè Christianae Apologia

      - 12 p.l., 374, [24] pp., one leaf of errata. 4to, cont. English dark blue morocco (unimportant scuffing to extremities), covers panelled in gilt & blind, spine finely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Amsterdam: J. Claus & others, 1676. First edition, rare, and a splendid copy bound in contemporary English dark blue morocco, most probably for presentation, of the classic exposition of the Quaker philosophy. The Society of Friends, as Quakers are more formally known, has historically had an outsized influence through the mere force of passive resistance. Their form of Christianity is "widely divergent from the prevalent types, being a religious fellowship which has no formulated creed demanding definite subscription, and no liturgy, priesthood or outward sacrament, and which gives to women an equal place with men in church organization."-Encyc. Brit. The Quakers were also instrumental in the colonization of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Following the foundation of the Society of Friends by George Fox in 1647, its adherents issued a large body of polemical pamphlets and tracts, most of negligible literary merit. The need to combat persecution caused Barclay (1648-90), a member of a notable Scottish family who had converted to Quakerism in 1666-67, to write a series of "books that became the definitive statement of the Quaker faith for upwards of two centuries."-ODNB. In 1675 he published his Theses Theologiae, a series of 15 propositions spelling out Quaker beliefs. The Apologia, which Barclay had printed in Amsterdam during a period of travel or voluntary exile, is a full and reasoned defense of each of the 15 theses set forth in the earlier work. This work has been reprinted many times and in many languages. Leslie Stephen described it in D.N.B. as "impressive in style; grave, logical, and often marked by the eloquence of lofty moral convictions?One of the most impressive theological writings of the century?[Barclay's] recognition of a divine light working in men of all creeds harmonises with the doctrine of toleration, which he advocates with great force and without the restrictions common in his time." This first edition was undoubtedly printed in a very small number. The present large, attractive copy appears to have been bound for presentation, and may have been one of the copies sent in February 1678 to each of the ambassadors at the peace congress of Nijmegen. Fine and handsome copy, preserved in a box. With the Princes of Starhemberg stamp (sale Cologne, 16 September 1956, lot 941). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans

      1676 - PLUTARCH. The Lives Of The Noble Grecians and Romans". BOUND WITH: Prosopographia: Or, Some Select Pourtraitures and Lives of Ancient and Modern Illustrious Personages. Cambridge: Printed by John Hayes, 1676. Thick folio, modern full tan speckled calf, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. $2500.Expanded and highly desirable sixth edition of the first English translation of Plutarch's Lives, one of the most influential works of the Elizabethan era and a major Shakespeare source. With 25 "Eminent Persons of Ancient and latter times"&#157; by Thevet""five of which are new to this edition, including Christopher Columbus and Hernando Cortéz."The Lives are works of great learning and research, and Plutarch is careful to quote his authorities, whose number indicates a formidable amount of reading". Early translated, by Amyot into French and by North into English, the influence of Plutarch's method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome" (PMM 48). "North dedicated the book to Queen Elizabeth, and it was one of the most popular of her day. It is written throughout in admirably vivid and robust prose. But it is as Shakespeare's storehouse of classical learning that it presents itself in its most interesting aspect. To it (it is not too much to say) we owe the existence of the plays of Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra, while A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles and Timon of Athens are all indebted to it" (DNB). North's translation, the first into English, was published in 1579. This copy of the sixth edition bound with André Thevet's Prosopographia (first published 1584; his last published work), written in imitation of Plutarch's work, with numerous biographies of later classical, medieval and even contemporary American personages; the 25 biographies and portraits include Cortez, Columbus and Gutenberg. George Gerbier d'Ouvilly's Thevet first appeared with North's Plutarch in 1657, although the last five biographies (including Cortez and Columbus) first appeared in this edition. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, featuring portrait of Plutarch, with explanation on facing page. Title page of Lives printed in red and black. With woodcut medallion portraits within ornamental borders throughout Plutarch's Lives and copper-engraved portraits throughout Thevet's additional Lives. Decorative woodcut initials and headpieces throughout. With extensive indexes. Plutarch: Wing P2634; Brueggemann, 319-20; Moss II:514; see PMM 48. Thevet: Wing T888A. Owner ink signature; evidence of page tipped to front free endpaper.Text clean. Closed tear to one leaf (B6), affecting text but without loss. Attractive binding fine.

        Theologiae verè Christianae Apologia

      12 p.l., 374, [24] pp., one leaf of errata. 4to, cont. English dark blue morocco (unimportant scuffing to extremities), covers panelled in gilt & blind, spine finely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Amsterdam: J. Claus & others, 1676. First edition, rare, and a splendid copy bound in contemporary English dark blue morocco, most probably for presentation, of the classic exposition of the Quaker philosophy. The Society of Friends, as Quakers are more formally known, has historically had an outsized influence through the mere force of passive resistance. Their form of Christianity is "widely divergent from the prevalent types, being a religious fellowship which has no formulated creed demanding definite subscription, and no liturgy, priesthood or outward sacrament, and which gives to women an equal place with men in church organization."-Encyc. Brit. The Quakers were also instrumental in the colonization of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Following the foundation of the Society of Friends by George Fox in 1647, its adherents issued a large body of polemical pamphlets and tracts, most of negligible literary merit. The need to combat persecution caused Barclay (1648-90), a member of a notable Scottish family who had converted to Quakerism in 1666-67, to write a series of "books that became the definitive statement of the Quaker faith for upwards of two centuries."-ODNB. In 1675 he published his Theses Theologiae, a series of 15 propositions spelling out Quaker beliefs. The Apologia, which Barclay had printed in Amsterdam during a period of travel or voluntary exile, is a full and reasoned defense of each of the 15 theses set forth in the earlier work. This work has been reprinted many times and in many languages. Leslie Stephen described it in D.N.B. as "impressive in style; grave, logical, and often marked by the eloquence of lofty moral convictions…One of the most impressive theological writings of the century…[Barclay's] recognition of a divine light working in men of all creeds harmonises with the doctrine of toleration, which he advocates with great force and without the restrictions common in his time." This first edition was undoubtedly printed in a very small number. The present large, attractive copy appears to have been bound for presentation, and may have been one of the copies sent in February 1678 to each of the ambassadors at the peace congress of Nijmegen. Fine and handsome copy, preserved in a box. With the Princes of Starhemberg stamp (sale Cologne, 16 September 1956, lot 941).

        A map of Russia.

      1676. Copper engraving, mm 400x508 (sheet size: mm 417x532), later hand colouring. English text on verso.One of the most decorative maps of western Russia bounded by the North, White, Black and Caspian Seas. The map follows the work of Gerritsz and Blaeu, including the bird's-eye plan of Moscow in an inset at top left. At right are views of Narva, Archangel Sckagoroda, the Emperor's Court, a hot house, and a mill. The title cartouche features several Russian gentlemen, one of whom is holding the coat of arms of the Russian Empire. Engraved by Francis Lamb, whose imprint appears at bottom right, this map was published only in the 1676 edition of Speed's Prospect of The Most Famous Parts of the World. . . , published by Bassett & Chiswell in 1676. For this edition, the publishers (Speed had been dead for 50 years) added this map of Russia, along with other maps of Asia and north America. As a result, these are by far the scarcest of the regional maps from Speed's. Good condition, partly remargined on three sides, minor restoration at centerfold.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Vigevano, 20. I. 1676.

      1676. 1 S. auf gefalt. Bogen. Folio. Als Bischof von Vigevano in der Lombardei, an den Dominikaner Raimondo Capizucchi (1615-91), der seit 1654 das Amt des "maestro del sacro palazzo apostolico" bekleidete (und 1681 Kardinal wurde), in Zusammenhang mit der bevorstehenden Ernennung des Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel (1617-83) zum Bischof von Castellamare: "Son tantos los favores que V. S. R.ma ha hecho y haze siempre a Caramuel, que el por no ser ingrato, y viendo que en un sugeto no puede cumplir con lo mucho que debe, se multiplica para poder servir mejor en diversos suppuestos. Digolo, porque bessara la mano de V. S. R.ma Monsenor Laurecio Mayers Caramuel, nombrado obispo de Castelmar, para que V. S. R.ma le reciba en el numero de sus servidores, y lo comunique las gracias y favores que suele. En mi libro, que offrecera a V. S. R.ma conocera el mundo, que conosco la denda ya que es tanta que no la puedo reconoscer. Acabo rogando a Dios nos guarde y prospere la persona de V. S. R.ma [...]". Spätes Schreiben des bis zur Sprunghaftigkeit geistig wendigen Theologen und Ingenieurs. Böhmischer Abstammung und aus Madrid gebürtig, wirkte er u. a. in Löwen, Schottland, Wien und Prag, bevor er seinem Protektor Kardinal Chigi (nunmehr Papst Alexander VII.) nach Italien folgte. Auch Kaiser Ferdinand III. förderte ihn lange aufgrund seiner Kenntnisse in der Festungsbaukunst und seiner heroischen Verteidigung Prags gegen die Schweden im Jahre 1648; das Bistum Vigevano verdankte er der Intervention der Habsburger. Er publizierte zu einer Fülle von Themen, darunter eine der ersten Behandlungen des Binärsystems (wie auch der praktischen Anwendung der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung auf das Glücksspiel). - Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel wurde am 27. April 1676 zum Bischof von Castellamare di Stabia in Süditalien ernannt und am 10. Mai geweiht. 1678 wurde er Bischof des nahen Gaeta. - Faltspuren.

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Montgomery Shire.

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, foxing). A handsome uncolored map of Montogmeryshire, as part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The copper plates for this map were gngraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam, resulting in a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Atlas. A title cartouche baring the royal coat of arms flanked by a set of hounds, introduce us to this stunning map of Montgomery Shire. A desirable and innovative aspect to Speed's maps are his town plan insets. Here we find the town of Montgomery laid out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. This town plan was particularly mapped to the smallest details, such as the water well and towers. The key for his letter guide to the significant roads and buildings and Montgomery shield are also included. The coat of arms of Phillip Herbert, the 1st Earle of Montgomery, is showcased in the lower left corner. Philip was first given the title of 4th Earl of Pembroke and was the chief favorite of James I for many years. In 1605, King James I of England created him Earl of Montgomery and Baron Herbert of Shurland. In 1630, when he succeeded to the Earldom of Pembroke, the head of the Herbert family has carried the double title of Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. The arms shown here are used for the representations of both titles. This edition of the map has the later addition of a strapwork frame, holding the text "Described by Christopher Saxton Augemented and published by John Speed and are to be solde by the Thomas Bassett in Fleetstreet, and Ric Chiswell in St Paul's Churchyard". Some earlier published maps left this space blank. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British Isles, Speed's Atlas was also one of the first attempts to accurately survey Ireland and to incorporate a comprehensive list of their town plans into the maps. The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The examples of this map of the Montgomeryshire should always be uncolored and never colored. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him the attention of William Camden, Robert Cotton, and Sir Fulke Greville. By working with these figures, Speed was able to do a large amount of research for his own work. In 1596, Greville bequeathed Speed with an unlimited allowance to research, and then later write, the Historie of Great Britaine. It was during this project which Speed had the encouragement to add a cartographic supplement to the work - what we today know as his most famous atlas. After being first published in 1611-1612, the 'Theatre of Great Britain' dominated the seventeenth-century English map market, going through many reprints and editions. Thanks to the Atlas' success, Speed earned the title of England's most well-known Stuart period cartographer and his work became the blueprint for folio atlases until the mid-18th century. Historically, Speed is also noted for placing England into the mainstream of map publishing, which had been dominated by the Dutch since the late sixteenth century. This map of Montgomeryshire is an excellent part of the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, and would be an outstanding addition to all map collections.

        Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus sive Tabulae aequinoctiales novi Persarum & Turcarum anni. Nunc primum editae è Bibliotheca, cujus accedit Dissertatio, de earundem usu. Augsburg, Johann Schönigk f. Theophil Göbel, 1676.

      1676. Small 4to. (14), 137, (19) pp. With engr. frontispiece and 22 engr. plates by Melchior Haffner. Contemporary calf. First facsimile edition of any oriental manuscript. 16 of the 22 finely engraved plates show a Persian perpetual calendar with Ottoman Turkish "commentarius" and floral borders. Welsch had acquired the ms. from Christoph Weikmann's Kunstkammer in Ulm. The remaining six plates are concerned with Arabian astronomy: astrolabe, orrery, zodiac, circular table of Sundays and names of the months in various languages. - The calculation of this calendar is today attributed to the 9th-c. Persian mathematician Wafâ al Buzjâni (cf. BSB München; Humboldt-Universität Berlin). The predominant attribution to one Turkish Sheikh Wafâ had been disputed by Babinger as early as 1927. Abu'l-Wafâ al Buzjâni is regarded as "the last great representative of the mathematics-astronomy school that arose around the beginning of the ninth century, shortly after the founding of Baghdad" (DSB I, 39). His astronomic oeuvre is preserved merely in fragments. The calligraphic commentary, however, is Turkish and (according to Babinger) was prepared by a 17th-c. magistrate, 'Ajn-i 'Alî Mueddinzâde. - Welsch (1624-77) was a physician and "a researcher of the very first magnitude [...] while the works of this polymath were mainly dedicated to the Arabian and Persian sciences, he also has provided proof of his close study of Ottoman Turkish. In this connexion, his important 'Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus' must be cited" (cf. Babinger 1919). Welsch's "Dissertatio" (with Arabic typeface) is aimed at the usefulness of the calendar for relative oriental chronology: he also compares the works of Schall von Bell and Andreas Müller on Chinese astronomy and chronology. - Bookplate of South Library on front pastedown. Occasionally browned. Zenker, Bibliotheca Orientalis I, 1077. Schnurrer 465. Babinger, Geschichtsschreiber der Osmanen (1927), 116 & 141.
