        Kent with her Cities and Earles described and observed

      The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. T Bassett & R Chiswell., 1676.. Kent. Copper engraving. Hand coloured. Very good condition. Sheet size: 395 x 510 mm. Mount size: 590 x 705 mm A beautiful map of Kent based on the work of Philip Symonson. Insets of the cathedral cities of Canterbury and Rochester, and seven coats of arms. Due to Kent's extensive coastline, and proximity to France and the Netherlands, it had unrivalled advantages for trade, thus making its defence imperative. Dover Castle had long been a linchpin in the defence of the realm, but most other castles in Kent were made redundant when a series of modern artillery forts like Deal and Walmer were constructed in the 1540's by Henry VIII. These were to protect the anchorage of the Downs which the Navy had recently taken to using. The adoption of other fleet-anchorages along the Thames and the Medway, and the establishment of dockyards at Deptford and Woolwich by Henry VIII, and at Chatham by Elizabeth I, turned Kent into the best defended area in the kingdom throughout the Tudor and early Stuart periods.

        America with those known parts in that unknowne worlde, both people and manner of buildings Described and inlarged.

      Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, London 1676 - Speed's famous map of North and South America, among the most decorative maps of the seventeenth century. This famous map by Speed, first issued in 1626, was when issued among the most accurate depictions of the east coast of North America. The large depiction of California as an island is after the rare map by Briggs and was the first such depiction to appear in an atlas. Numerous ships and sea monsters appear in both the Atlantic and Pacific. "Decorating the whole are three attractive borders. The two sides illustrate the natives of the continent, the left bears those of the north and the right those of the south" (Burden). The city views along the top depict Havana, St. Domingo, Cartagena, Mexico, Cusco, Moca, Rio de Janiero and Oldina. "Despite the map's obvious attention to the English presence in North America, none of the eight towns represented . are from that part. This is owing to the relative lack of any contemporary views to draw upon" (Burden). The present copy is an example of the fourth state, published in 1676, with Bassett and Chiswell's imprint in the lower left. Tooley notes that while the copperplate is unchanged from the previous state (save for the addition of the aforementioned imprint) that "the text on the reverse is not only reset but rewritten. There is no fleuron heading, New York and Maryland are mentioned for the first time in the text to Virginia . and Hochelaga, Quebec and Tadusac added to the description of Canada" (Tooley). Burden, The Mapping of North America I: 217 (state 4); Tooley, "California as an Island," 5 in Tooley, The Mapping of America ; McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island 3. Copper engraved map, engraved by Abraham Goos. Inset of Greenland and the Arctic. Side borders composed of ten figures in native costume, upper border comprised of eight city views.

After Pope Paul V excommunicated Venice and its possessions, Sarpi?s strong arguments against the Papal position made him the target of a Papal sponsored assassination (1607). Sarpi?s later work , Istoria del Concilio Tridentino (History of the Council of Trent), was an important critical work of the Catholic Church?s reformation, especially the the of the role curia. His history was widely read by Protestants, including John Milton, who called Sarpi ?the great unmasker.? ^ Peter Burke, The great unmasker: Paolo Sarpi, 1551-1613, History Today 15 (1965), p. 430.

      Boston: Printed by John Foster, . 1676 - [8],63pp. Small quarto. 19th-century speckled calf, ruled in gilt, spine gilt, gilt morocco label, gilt inner dentelles. Two small closed tears in foredge of titlepage, with no loss. Scattered foxing. Very good. A rare and early American election day sermon, published in the second year of printing in Boston. In this sermon, delivered on May 3, 1676 and dedicated to John Leveret, governor of the colony of Massachusetts, William Hubbard, the minister of Ipswich, urges those eligible to vote to exercise their rights and cast ballots for their rulers. Hubbard supports his exhortation with biblical and historical precedents. He says that "you are now called to the exercise of your civil liberty (wherein much of your other libertys are bound up)," and urges "the regular, conscientious proceeding in this business of Election," by which the people "have the liberty to choose their own rulers." With much of New England being engaged in wars with the local Pequot Indians, Hubbard spends quite a bit of time offering council on the proper way to prepare for and undertake conflict: "war ought not to be made without good advice." The literary critic Sacvan Bercovitch calls it a "brilliant election-day oration," emphasizing Hubbard's belief that the Puritan faith will turn "the rough and barren wilderness" of New England into a "fragrant Sharon." The sermon was delivered before the governor, council, and deputies of the Massachusetts colony. Hubbard is best remembered for his history of King Philip's War, published in 1677. EVANS 214.

Copperplate engraving, with later older colour. A wonderfully decorative and pleasing map of the Americas by the famous English cartographer John Speed. The map was published by Bassett and Chiswell in London during the latter half of the seventeenth century. Three sides of the map depict either assorted Native Americans in tribal attire, or vignettes of the important cities and trading settlements then known within the Americas. California is shown as an island, and South America is somewhat misshapen. Sea monsters and galleons patrol the oceans. There is an inset map of Greenland, and a decorative, scrolled title cartouche. This is a famous and iconic map of The Americas, as seen through European eyes.

Divers faults yt are in ye former are in this amended. Allso the severall figures yt stand up and downe in ye Mapp are explained in ye 2 tables at ye upper corners hereof.

      Printed and Sold by Robert Walton, at ye Globes Compasses, just at the west end of St. Paul's-Church, [1676]., London, - England's Glory 430 by 550mm (17 by 21.75 inches). Hand-coloured engraved plan. Howgego 30. Detailed plan of the the City of London.The plan extends from Fleet Street in the west to the Tower of London in the east and from Finsbury Fields in the north to Bankside in the south. To the upper left and right is a list of public buildings, gates, bridges, and streets. The plan shows in detail the rebuilt City of London which the Great Fire had destroyed much of in 1666. One can clearly see the heart of what is now the financial district including Cheapside, Cornhill, Lombard Street, and Leadenhall Street, together with the Monument, St. Paul's, and the Tower of London. In the title, Walton is keen to stress the usefulness of the plan being, "a guide to strangers, and such as are not well acquainted herein to direct them from place to place". He goes on to write: "Divers faults yt are in ye former are in this amended". To which plan Walton was alluding is unclear; some have suggested that it was his: "Newest and Exactess Mapp of the most Famous Citties London.", of 1655 yet as this depicts a pre-Fire London it would seem unlikely. Most probably the plan is a revised state of an earlier, no longer extant, plan. This would also account for the rather haphazard placing of a large part of the explanatory text. The map can be reliably dated to 1676, as Walton advertised it for sale in the 'Term Catalogue' of May that year.Scale: 11 inches to 1 statute mile.

        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 Louis 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. The only edition of a magnificent example of the art of imagery which dominated the baroque period. This sumptuously illustrated thesis on rhetoric was read to the Jesuit College on 13th August 1679 by the great nephew of Marshal Turenne to whom it is dedicated. Celebrated are the martial exploits of Henri de la Tour d’Auvergne, vicomte de Turenne (1611-1675), and latterly with, Louis XIV. The suite of plates, issued by the Jesuit College for presentation to invited guests, comprises the title, set on an ermine mantle placed before the arms and symbols of Louis; it is signed by the artist (Pierre-Paul Sevin), the engraver, Louis Cossin, and calligrapher,René Michault. The epistolary dedication by Father 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 Father 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; on either side are 2 emblematic devices (in all 48, of which 28 are attributed by Praz to the Jesuit Claude-François Menestrier (1631-1705), renowned for his treatise on the art of devices and emblems. The calligrapher, René Michault, is considered one of the best pupils of the great master Jarré. Louis Charles de La Tour d’Auvergne (1665-92) was the son of Godefroy Maurice, duc de Bouillon, the nephew of Marshal Turenne, and Marie Anne Mancini, the niece of Cardinal Mazarin. Daly, P.

        Resuscitatio or Bringing into Publick Light Several Pieces of the Works Civil, Historical, Philosophical, and Theological, Hitherto Sleeping of the Right Honourable Francis Bacon [includes] A preparatory to the history natural & experimental [and] The natural and experimental history of winds

      London: W[illiam] G[odbid] for R Scot, T Basset [etc], 1676 Book. Illus. by Wenceslaus Hollar. Very Good. Leather Bound. 1st Edition. The 1676, third, and most complete edition of this collection of Bacon's shorter writings that includes several significant scientific works, notably The Natural and Experimental History of the Form of Hot Things and Of the Several Kinds of Motion. The folio volume is bound in seventeenth century calf with a blind fillet to the boards and a red morocco label to the spine of the book which has been invisibly relaid. The early ownership signature 'E libris Thome Kenyon 1692' appears on the first blank and an old collation note (complete) by the London bookdealers 'B Quaritch' is written in pencil to the inside of the lower cover. The text is indeed complete as called for, with the first Bacon portrait opposite the title page and the second by Hollar placed at the end of The Life of Bacon as is usual. This example of the book has the errata note at the foot of 1C2r still visible with the blank slip removed. Bacon's Resuscitatio went through several editions during this period and its reappearance is testimony to the writer's enduring influence in natural philosophy, politics and morals.

Over all a very nice copy.Issac de Benserade was an important poet in the court of Louis XIV and was the librettist for the composer Lully. His translation of M??tamorphoses d\'Ovid in the form of a rondeaux was considered a failure and negatively affected his reputation. \"Benserade wrote rondeaus upon Ovid some of which are reckoned tolerable but upon the whole the attempt was too absurd for serious approbation and his Ovid without occasioning any controversy dropt into oblivion almost as soon as it was published, although it appeared in a highly ornamented 4to printed at Paris 1676 with engravings to the expence [sic] of which the king contributed 10,000 livres.\" (The General Biographical Dictionary, Chalmers).HBS 66663.$3,000

The second part was added in 1685. The present second edition includes only the first part and is therefore bound with the first editions of the second part and of the Auctaria. Sturm's Iridis admiranda forms a kind of supplement, with additional material on optics.With the bookplate of the library of the Berlin Gesellschaft naturforschender Freunde. In very good condition.

Er führte in den Jahren 1663 und 1664 einen Feldzug gegen den habsburgischen Teil Ungarns. Nachdem er mehrere Festungen erobert hatte, erlitt er bei der Schlacht von St. Gotthard eine Niederlage und sah sich gezwungen, mit Österreich unter Habsburg den Frieden von Eisenburg zu schließen, der allerdings viele der türkischen Eroberungen sicherte. Der kaiserliche Feldherr Montecuccoli war wegen der Schwächen seines Heeres nicht in der Lage, den Sieg auszunützen, deswegen blieb Fazil Ahmed Paschas Einfluss auf den Sultan ungebrochen. Am 14. Mai 1666 begann er die Belagerung von Candia auf Kreta, das zur Republik Venedig gehörte und erst am 17. September 1669 fiel. Der nächste von ihm geführte Krieg war 1672 der gegen Polen-Litauen zur erbetenen Hilfeleistung für die ukrainischen Kosaken unter Petro Doroschenko. Zunächst erfolgreich im Rahmen des Friedens zu Buczacz, wurde Ahmed Pascha von den Polen unter ihrem Großkronhetman Jan Sobieski bei Chocim und Lemberg geschlagen. Am 22. Oktober 1674 kehrte er todkrank, angeblich Ödem wegen Alkoholismus, nach Edirne zurück. Die Türken behaupteten sich aber auch weiterhin und stimmten den ehrenhaften Bedingungen im Frieden von Z.urawno vom 17. Oktober 1676 zu, durch den sie die Festung Kamieniec Podolski, große Teile Podoliens und der südlichen Ukraine behielten. (Osmanisch-Polnischer Krieg 1672-1676).
