RELAND, Adriaan.
Steenbrink, Dutch colonialism and Indonesian Islam, pp. 55-56. Second (enlarged) edition and first illustrated edition of the most detailed and most objective account of Islam published in Europe to this time, written by Adriaan Reland (1676-1718), professor of Oriental languages at Utrecht University, and first published (also by Broedelet at Utrecht) in 1705. It corrected many errors of the earlier writers on the subject, who often saw Islam only as an enemy of Christianity. The engravings were newly made for this edition, most of them signed or initialled by the artist Jan Goeree (1670-1731), the 1705 edition having only an engraved device (differing from the present one) on the title-page. The view of the great mosque at Mecca gave Europeans their first accurate view of that monument to Islam. Reland also expanded the text for this edition.The plates show a family tree, an illustration of Muslims praying, a view of the Byzantine temple of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (Istanbul), which had been converted into a mosque (and now appears with all four minarets), and a view of the great mosque in Mecca (this last 28 x 53.5 cm, not including caption).With a couple small tears in the largest folding plate, not affecting the pictorial image, and occasional small stains and minor foxing, but still in very good condition. The best early European account of the religion of Islam.

[BOYLE, ROGER].
London: Printed by T. N. for Henry Herringman, 1676. First complete edition, preceded by a parts issue which was issued from 1651 to 1669. Folio, contemporary calf rebacked, red morocco label, gilt lettering. A Restoration romance by the first Earl of Orrery with a plot somewhat typical of the period: platonic lovers and historical allegory in a classical setting, etc. Boyle was an Irishman (1621-79) who distinguished himself with Charles II and received the earldom of Orrery as his reward. In addition to this novel, he wrote poetry, plays and a Treatise on the Art of War (1667), and he was a friend of Katherine Philips and Margaret Cavendish. Evidence of contemporary readership by a woman: handsome armorial bookplate on the verso of the title-page of Mrs. Coke, "Cary Coke Wife of Edward Coke of Norfolk 1701." And on the front paste-down is the signature "C. Coke / 168/" and code "KsY" in the upper corner. Some light stains and foxing, mostly to the endpapers and prelims; very good copy.

Plutarch of Cheronaea [Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus] / [North, Thomas / Shakespeare / Johannes Gutenberg]
Cambridge, John Hayes for George Sawbridge, 1676.. Folio. Engraved Frontispiece, Titlepage in red and black, [VIII] 8, 1030, 2, 20 pages / Prosopographia:[VI], 91,[XXXVI] pages. Original Hardcover (full leather with five raised bands and the original spinelabel). The binding with stronger signs of wear but firm and original. Interior in very good condition with only very mild signs of foxing. Very rare contemporary binding of Thomas North's Plutarch.. Sir Thomas North (1535-1604) was an English justice of the peace, military officer and translator. His translation into English of Plutarch's Parallel Lives is notable for being a source text used by William Shakespeare for several of his plays. The first edition of his translation of Plutarch, from the French of Jacques Amyot, appeared in 1579. The first edition was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and was followed by another edition in 1595, containing fresh Lives. A third edition of his Plutarch was published, in 1603, with more translated Parallel Lives, and a supplement of other translated biographies. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica Eleventh Edition, "[i]t is almost impossible to overestimate the influence of North's vigorous English on contemporary writers, and some critics have called him the first master of English prose." The Lives translation formed the source from which Shakespeare drew the materials for his Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra. It is in the last-named play that he follows the Lives most closely, whole speeches being taken directly from North.

CLAIRAUT, Alexis Claude.
Fine large-paper copy of this celebrated treatise, "the first treatise on solid analytic geometry" (Boyer), written when the author was only sixteen. In it Clairaut demonstrates a claim made by Newton that all cubic curves in three dimensions are projections of a cubic curve of a special form. This publication led to Clairaut's election to the Académie des Sciences at the age of eighteen, the rules of admission being suspended to accommodate the mathematical prodigy.<br/><br/> "Alexis Claude Clairaut was one of the most precocious of mathematicians, outdoing even Blaise Pascal in this respect. At the age of ten he was reading the textbooks of L'Hospital on conics and the calculus, when he was thirteen he read a paper on geometry to the Académie des Sciences ... In the year of his election Clairaut published a celebrated treatise, <i>Recherches sur les courbes a double courbure</i>, the substance of which had been presented to the Académie two years earlier ... The treatise of Clairaut carried out for space curves the program that Descartes had suggested almost a century before - their study through projections on two coordinate planes. It was, in fact, this method that suggested the name given by Clairaut to gauche or twisted curves inasmuch as their curvature is determined by the curvatures of the two projections. In the <i>Recherches</i> numerous space curves are determined through intersections of various surfaces, distance formulas for two and three dimensions are given, an intercept form of the plane is included, and tangent lines to space curves are found.

The suite features bejeweled earrings, necklaces and broaches intertwined with floral borders made of cornucopias, wreaths, birds, swirling ribbons and other ornamental elements. Each design appears floating above engraved landscapes and cityscapes depicting Rome, Paris, Notre Dame, Saint Denis, and the gardens of the Château de Rueil. The final engraving features a portrait of Louis XIV within a jeweled frame, surrounded by a wreath over a view of Pont Neuf. A work of such unique charm that Bernard Quaritch saw fit to make facsimile edition published in 1888! The introduction to the facsimile describes the work as "An undescribed and apparently unknown series of 12 plates..." Bernard Moncornet came from a long line of Flemish artisans including his father, Pierre Moncornet, who moved the family to Paris at the request of Henry IV to work at the famed Gobelins tapestry manufacturer.

Genf, Joh. Hermann Widerhold, 1676. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ökonomischen Klassikers. Die erste französische Ausgabe des bedeutenden Werks des französischen Handelsschriftstellers Savary (1622-1690) erschien im Vorjahr und ist nach Eduard Weber nicht bekannt geworden. "Die 'Geburtsstunde' der Betriebswirtschaft in der verschollenen . Ausgabe. Die vorliegende Ausgabe wurde grundlegend für die Geschichte der Betriebswirtschaftslehre (Handelsbetriebslehre) und enthält im Anhang die 'Ordonnantz von Ludwig dem XIV.' ('Code Savary' genannt): Die erste Kodifikation des Handelsrechts" (Sauer 48). Der 'Parfait Negociant' (französischer Orig.-Titel) ist nicht nur eine erste Pionierleistung, mit der die Zeit des Merkantilismus beginnt, sondern auch ohne Zweifel die beste unter einer ganzen Reihe von Schriften, die teils in dieser Phase, teils aber auch später erschienen und durchweg von Savary beeinflusst sind. Quasi als Kommentar zum 'Code Savary' wurde es aber vor allem wirtschaftlicher Ratgeber und Unterrichtsbuch für die tägliche Handelspraxis. Savarys Verdienst liegt vor allem in der Gründlichkeit und großen Sachlichkeit seiner Darstellung. Kein anderer betriebswirtschaftlicher Titel übte einen ähnlich großen Einfluss aus. Nicht nur in der französischen oder deutschen, sondern auch in der englischen und holländischen Wirtschaftsliteratur wurde 'Le parfait negociant' bis ins19. Jh. hinein ausgiebig als Quelle genutzt.

[80], 336, [12] pp. Illustrated with 81 copper-engraved plates after Holbein. 8vo., 183 x 110 mm, bound in full French eighteenth-century red morocco, triple ruled fillet border, intricate gilt-tooled spine, a.e.g. Basel: Genathianis, 1676. |~||~||~||~|$7500.00 The First Edition of this important Renaissance work to include Hans Holbein's illustrations, engraved by Caspar Merian, with numerous representations of classical figures described in the narrative, as well as portraits of Erasmus, Holbein the Elder, and Holbein the Younger. Presented as a series of allegories, this satirical, often sardonic treatise on Catholic dogma and the corruption rampant in the Roman Catholic Church is a reflection of Erasmus's own feeling of disillusionment with the Church following a visit to Rome. Ending simply with the author's interpretation of true Christian values, this volume, translated into English as In Praise of Folly, served as an impetus for the Protestant Reformation. Binding in excellent condition. A clean, bright copy overall, with a few sections of the text slightly yellowed. Graesse II, 495. Brunet II, 1037.

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 [...]".

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.

Legatura coeva in piena pergamena ITALIANO Legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo breve manoscritto al dorso; antica nota manoscritta al verso della carta di guardia anteriore. 6 carte non numerate, comprso il frontespizio con titolo e antica nota manoscritta di possesso; 394 pagine numerate; 6 carte non numerate di indici, di cui l'ultima bianca. 1 carta bianca, oltre a quella di guardia posteriore. All'interno, dopo la prefazione, 3 belle tavole fuori testo incise su rame e ripiegate, raffiguranti apparecchiature chimiche e alambicchi vari. Quarta edizione, la prima nel 1663, di uno dei più importanti testi di chimica  del XVII  secolo, pubblicato fino al 1710.  Si tratta di uno dei primi tentativi di far uscire la chimica dal misticismo alchemico in cui era confinata, e così  descrivere i preparati chimici in modo univoco. L'opera è divisa in due libri: il primo descrive brevemente l'utilità, le definizioni, i principi, le operazioni, e le apparecchiature chimiche. II secondo libro, molto più corposo del primo,  è dedicato alla descrizione di preparati medicinali tratti dai regni minerale, vegetale e animale.   La ricetta antifebbrile descritta valse la fama all'auotre:  sel (solfato di potassio ricavato  riscaldando salnitro e zolfo e ricristallizzato da acqua)  fu in seguito conosciuto come "sel polychrestum glaseri".  Il solfato misto naturale di sodio e potassio. (3K2SO4: Na2SO4) è stato nominato, pertanto, glaserite in suo onore. Esemplare in ottimo stato di coservazione.
