        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). .

[with] VAN DER HEYDE, Franz J. Gefährlichen Schiff-bruch des Ost-Indischen Jagdt-schifs ter Schelling

      Jacob von Meurs u. Johannes von Sommern, Amsterdam 1676 - Folio, title page printed in red and black; extra engraved title, engraved portrait, and 19 double-page engraved plates, with one full page engraving and many more engravings in the text; some browning to a number of the plates, as appears to happen frequently; small water-stain in lower fore-corners; the second part with engraving on the title page and 13 engraved plates; a handsome copy in old limp vellum with ties, spine lettered in ink. Dutch and Portuguese settlements in the East Indies. First German edition, published simultaneously with the Dutch edition. This German version however has an extra part added (see below). Many times reprinted, in different forms, the main work is by Schouten (his name is translated here as Walter Schultzen), a VOC ship's doctor whose description of his voyage to and experiences over several years in the East Indies and at the Cape of Good Hope gives one of the most famous descriptions of the Dutch (and Portuguese) settlements in the East Indies. It is a tremendous visual resource, with views of Malacca, Batavia, Macassar, Ternate, Aniboina, Point de Galle, Colombo, Negapatam and elsewhere. These richly inked detailed engravings were used to great advantage by the Golden Cockerel Press to illustrate their publication of a translation of Jean de Lacombe's voyages to the East Indies (A Compendium of the East, 1937).Lach, who quotes frequently from Schouten in his Asia in the Making of Europe, describes Schouten's work as 'one of the best' of the several descriptions of Java which appeared in the last quarter of the seventeenth century. 'Schouten described events as well as the land and its people. Much of what he wrote was the product of his own observations, although he obviously augmented them with information from other sources. His description of the court of Mataram, for example, is not an eyewitness account; he apparently never visited it. Since the whole book is written in Schouten's lively style, however, it is difficult to distinguish between the firsthand portions of his account and that which came from other sources'.The second work included here, though not in the Dutch edition, is a German translation of Van der Heide's Vervarelyke schipbreuk van 't Oost-Indischen Jacht ter Schelling which had been separately published in Amsterdam the previous year. This is the dramatic account of an ill-fated VOC voyage from Batavia towards Europe: 'Shipwreck on a desert island, hunger, and cannibalism are the themes of Franz Janszoon van der Heiden's tale describing the shipwreck of a VOC yacht off the coast of Bengal. According to Van der Heiden the Schelling was bound for Bengal from Batavia in October, 1661, when it ran aground during a storm and began to break up. Some of its crew escaped to a desert island where they struggled to stay alive for some time before building a rude raft with which they sailed to the mainland. Once on the mainland they were taken to a Mughal army camp and impressed into service. There is a brief description of the army and of the war they were fighting. Van der Heiden's tale may well be fictitious. The crew of the Schelling seems altogether too irresponsible, some of their adventures too unrealistic; the descriptions of the island are so general, it could be anywhere, and there are some serious lapses and illogicalities in the story' (Lach).

        [Letter, signed, to an unknown recipient].Lunéville, 21 March 1738. Folded leaf (32 x 20.5 cm). In French. With 3 blind-stamped seals.

      A letter signed by Élisabeth Charlotte d'Orléans, Duchess of Lorraine (1676-1744), discussing her youngest daughter Anne Charlotte's election as Abbess of Remiremont (Vosges, France). Apparently the Duchess had recommended her daughter for the title of Abbess in a previous letter. Anne Charlotte, though, had not yet reached the required age of 30, and had not been a Canoness for at least six weeks. In the current letter her mother applies for exemption from these articles. The Duchess did not write in vain: stepping into the footsteps of her older sister Élisabeth Charlotte, Anne Charlotte was elected Abbess on 10 May 1738.In fine condition.

        A Map of Virginia and Maryland.

      London 1676 - Fine hand color; wear to bottom of centerfold, else fine condition. A very attractive, near-mint example. Speed's handsomely engraved work is one of the earliest English maps of the area and one of the first to demarcate the borders of colonial Virginia and Maryland. Just three years before the publication of Speed¿s map, Augustine Herrman had conducted the first thorough surveys of Maryland at the behest of Lord Baltimore. Speed¿s was one of the first maps to adopt this groundbreaking cartography. However, in general outline Speed still followed the prototype of Captain John Smith, who conducted the first European survey of Chesapeake Bay. Speed's map "is the last major derivative of the Smith map, and it is unique as an example of the transition from one basic prototype map to another. The delineation of the land area follows Smith while the toponymic prototype was the Herrman map of 1673." (Verner in Tooley, Mapping of America, p.170) A particularly important feature derived from Herrman by Speed is the boundary line (indicated by a double row of trees) between Virginia and Maryland on the Eastern Shore. English text on the verso contains extensive descriptions of Virginia and Maryland.

Un weil verschiedene Urtheilen hievon geschehen / auch hoher Personen Handschreiben und abgebene Rsolutiones in offnen Druck gehen und spargiret werden / daraus stattsam abzunehmen / daß man denselben / und sonsten in gemein der Christen heit mit gleicher und warhaffter Relation allewa nicht fürkommen sey. So hat es die unvermeydliche Nohtturfft Gewissens und Ehren erfordert / davo warhafftig und umbstendlich zu berichten. Zu welöchem und keinem andern ende dieses an Tag geben / derwegen davon und ferner protestiret wird / daß dieses zu keines Menschen / hohen / mitteln oder geringern Standes Verkleinerung gemeinet sey / Veritas neminem laedit, neq; alia Apologia indiget, sed inter Bonos, semper Favitores invenit, soliq; tyrannis & injuste agentibus adversa esse potest. Im Dreißigjährigen Krieg widerstand Stralsund mit Hilfe von Schweden und Dänemark der Belagerung durch Wallensteins Truppen; es folgte eine fast 200-jährige Zeit der Zugehörigkeit zum Königreich Schweden als Teil von Schwedisch-Pommern. 1.100 gr.

Lyon, Joannes Antonius Huguetan, 1676, 4°, (50), 594, 24 pp.; (24), 298, (12), (20), 180, 16, (6), 224, (4) pp., Portrait of Willis und 40 Kupferstichtafeln, zwei restorierte Ledereinbände der Zeit; minimal fleckiges, sehr gutes Exemplar.. First collected edition of Willisi works including: De Fermentatione; De Febribus; De Urinis; Cerebri Anatome; Nervorum descriptio, & usus; De ratione motus musculorum studio Gulielmi Croone; De morbis convulsivis; De scorbuto; De affectionibus hystericis & hypochondriacis; De sanguinis incalescentia; De motu musculari; De anima brutorum exercitationes duae; Pharmeceutice rationalis & de medicamentorum operationibus in humano corpore. - "This edition is in two parts which are normally bound separately, but there is no actual indication of a distinction into two volumes, i.e. volume numbering or individual titles or half-titles, through the second part have their own title-pages." Feindler, The Anatomy of Brain and Nerves (1965), p.94 - THE CONTRIBUTIONS of WILLIS - "Thomas Willis was one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society, being elected in November 1663, though through a technicality he was not listed until October 24, 1667, at the time of renewal of the charter. In 1664 he was made Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. Influenced by Gilbert Sheldon, Archbishop of Canterbury, who had supported his appointment to the Oxford professorship, Willis moved in 1666 to London, where he practised from St. Martin's Lane. The reputation he had acquired at Oxford preceded him, and he soon became noted for his medical skill and known for his charitable works. - Thomas Willis wrote on a formidable range of topics, including fermentation, fevers, urine, ascension of the blood, muscular motion, anatomy of the brain, description and use of the nerves, convulsive diseases, scurvy, the comparative anatomy of some dozen species ranging from the earthworm and lobster to the sheep and man. He published numerous clinical and autopsy reports, particularly on neurological problems. Finally, in his last writings on rational therapeutics, he presented a vast and complex pharmacopeia in which are buried, however, useful descriptions of the anatomy of blood vessels, the muscular layers of the stomach and the detailed structure of the lungs.(R)His name has been associated with the syndrome of paracusis, the spinal accessory nerve, the first division of the fifth nerve, the connective tissue septae in the dural sinuses, and, of course, the arterial circle at the base of the brain. The clinical observations of Willis include a description of the sweetness of diabetic urine and a lengthy discussion of various types of diabetes, known to his seventeenth century patients bv the quaint name of "chamber pot dropsy". He recorded epidemic typhoid fever among the troops in the Civil War, described and named puerperal fever, gave useful descriptions of whooping cough and asthma, and pointed out that the intermittent pulse was not invariably associated with a bad prognosis. He contributed much to comparative anatomy and with his students Edmund King and John Masters, for example, he published the first detailed anatomical description of the edible oyster. He devised the probang, an ingenious "machine" for treating "a very rare case of a certain Man of Oxford" who was probably suffering from a stricture or achalasia of the esophagus. The patient vomited each time he ate. When it became clear that he could not be helped by medicines, but, wrote Willis, "languished away for hunger, and every Day was in danger of Death, I prepared an Instrument for him like a Rod, of a whale Bone, with a little round Button of Spunge fixed to the top of it; the sick Man having taken down meat and drink into his Throat, presently putting this down in the Oesophagus, he did thrust down into the Ventricle, its Orifice being opened, the Food which otherwise would come back again; and by this means he hath daily taken his sustenance for sixteen Years and doth yet use the same Machine, and is yet alive, and well, who would otherwise perish for want of Food." - As Cushing and Symonds have written, Willis was the first to present the notion of a circulating hormone from the pituitary and from the gonads. His extensive neurological writings still remain to be adequately appraised. His classification of the cranial nerves was in use for several centuries. He described the branches of the vagus nerve and the nerves to the diaphragm, and pictured the basal ganglia and structures of the brain stem in detail never before presented. He was probably the first to report temporal lobe epilepsy and to report the effects of myasthenia gravis" in a woman who temporarily lost her power of speech and became "mute as a fish". The term "reflex" can be clearly ascribed to Willis. He wrote on headache, epilepsy, apoplexy, paralysis of the insane, narcolepsy! and mental retardation. He explained hysteria not as a disorder of the uterus but as a nervous affection. The value of his observations on psychiatric and mental disturbances has only recently been recognized. - THE TERM "NEUROLOGY" This word first appears in Greek, in the Latin edition of Willis' "Cerebri Anatome" published in 1664. It was introduced into English in 1681 in the translation of Willis' works by Samuel Pordage, a Cavalier poet who dabbled at writing Restoration plays. He provided "a table of all the hard words from the Greek and Latin for the benefit of meer English Readers" where he "fully explained them and rendered them intelligible to the meanest capacity", and here "Neurologie" is referred to as "the Doctrine of the Nerves". The term was evidently used by Willis to include the cranial, spinal, peripheral and autonomic nerves as distinct from the brain and spinal cord, as when he states "we have resolved to undertake the task of the Doctrine of the Nerves; and this rather because without the perfect knowledge of the Nerves, the Doctrine of the Brain and its Appendix would be left wholly lame and imperfect." - Willis' use of the root "neuro", from the Greek word meaning sinew, tendon or bowstring, antedates its appearance in all other combinations in English by a century or more. Later, toward the end of the eighteenth century, the word "neurology" gradually came to its present broader meaning, given in the Oxford English Dictionary, of "the scientific study or knowledge of the anatomy, functions and diseases of the nerves and the nervous system"."

        Tratados historicos, politicos, ethicos y religiosos de la Monarchia de China . [Historical, Political, Moral and Religious Account of the Empire of China. A Short Description of that Empire and its Emperors and Ministers...]

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1676. Small folio, title-page in black and red with woodcut armorial device, engraved coat of arms at head of dedication; 3 lines of early annotation crossed through at end of advertisement; generally in fine condition in a good modern binding of brown calf, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands. First edition of early account of China. First edition: an excellent copy of this rare book, an important early description of the Chinese Empire based on direct experiences between the 1650s and 1670s. 'Written in Madrid in the first half of 1675 by a Dominican monk who had resided in China from 1658 until 1670, this work although sympathetic to the Chinese was anti-Jesuit and the Society of Jesus attempted to have it suppressed… [It] contains an accurate account of the Chinese empire, its customs and beliefs…' The book also describes visits to Macao, India, Mexico, the Philippines and elsewhere. 'There is a hostile survey of the Portuguese concession port of Macao…'(Lowendahl, {i China Illustrata Nova}). Navarrete travelled as a missionary to the Philippines by way of Mexico, arriving in 1648. He taught theology at the Dominican University in Manila, then in 1657 left with a group of missionaries for China. He spent years learning the language, only to be prevented from preaching, along with the other missionaries, by the persecutions of 1665. Instead he began to write; in 1673 he was called to Rome to discuss the question of Chinese Rites. This problem had reached an acute stage in China, with the Jesuits on one side and the Dominicans and Franciscans on the other. Navarrete was highly respected by Pope Innocent XI, who wanted to make him bishop of the Chinese missions; however, Navarrete refused. It was at this time (1676) that Navarrete's book was published in Madrid. Strongly anti-Jesuit, it was translated into most major European languages. It became particularly popular in England, and was admired by the French Jansenists and Voltaire.

        Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema.

      nella Stamperia di Gio. Tommaso Rossi,, in Finaro [ma Firenze], 1676 - In-24° (145x82mm), cc. 8 nn., 300. Mancano, come alla quasi totalità degli esemplari, le 16 cc. nn. con un discorso del Cinelli contro molti letterati del suo tempo. Questa aggiunta venne proibita e, pertanto, la quasi totalità delle già pochissime copie che la contenevano (a detta di alcuni bibliografi solo 50) andò distrutta. L'Olschki e la Vinciana descrivono esemplari privi, come il nostro, di tali 16 cc. Legatura in p. pergamena con piatti coevi e dorso rivestito nel XIX secolo in altro tipo di pergamena, adorno di filetti e fregi in oro e di titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa. Sguardie rivestite nell'Ottocento in carta azzurra. Le cc. nn. iniziali contengono una lettera dell'autore all'Arciduchessa Claudia di Innsbruck (Inspruch), una breve "Vita dell'Autore", un indovinello di Antonio Malatesti ("Malmantile disfatto"), un'avvertenza al lettore di Giovanni Cinelli e tre ottave proemiali corrette. Ex-libris manoscritto antico in parte eliso alla prima c. bianca. Bruniture e fioriture sparse. Buon esemplare. Errori di numerazione; dalla pag. 202 si salta, per errore tipografico comune a tutti gli esemplari, a pag. 263, terminando poi a pag. 300. Edizione originale, apparsa postuma ed assai rara, del famoso poema eroicomico del pittore e letterato Lorenzo Lippi (Firenze, 1606-1664), inteso essenzialmente come burlesca parodia della "Gerusalemme Liberata". L'opera è imperniata sulla contesa tra Celidora e Bertinella per il reame di Malmantile, castello diroccato presso Signa. L'idea del poema venne all'autore del vecchio castello di Malmantile, a sette miglia da Firenze, ancorché il titolo venne allegoricamente desunto da "vecchie tovaglie da tavola"; esso serba un notevolissimo valore linguistico, in quanto il Lippi raccolse in esso i riboboli circolanti nella lingua viva del popolo fiorentino verso la meta' del 600. Nel poema figurano numerosi personaggi del tempo adombrati sotto nomi fittizi, come Salvator Rosa (Salvo Rosata), che era amico del Lippi, e Carlo Dati (Alticardo). Cat. Vinciana, 2940. Brunet, V, 1536. Graesse, VII, 516. Gamba, 594. Parenti, Luoghi di stampa falsi, p. 86: "Rarissima a trovarsi". Razzolini, p. 200. Olschki, Choix, XII, 18536.

        Contemplations Moral and Divine. The Second Part

      William Shrowsbury, London 1676 - 222pp. This is, I believe, the first edition of the Second Part. Both Boards are missing from this copy, and the leather on the spine is rubbed and scuffed. The text-block which remains is in remarkably nice condition, however - with no foxing and no pages missing or even loose, and only a small amount of tanning to the page edges, as would be expected with a 300+ yrs. book. A binding copy of a rare title. Ask for further details/pictures. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
