Charas, Moyse.
1676. 4to. (12), 1060, (34), (2 blank) pp. With engraved frontispiece, engraved dedication and 6 numbered engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine. First edition of a pharmacopoeia compiled by the French apothecary Moyse Charas (1618-1698). The pharmacopoeia begins with an extensive introduction to ancient (Galenic) and modern (chemical) pharmacy. Charas was among the protagonists in favour of the chemical pharmacy, however, he did not thoroughly reject the Galenic pharmacy. "The remainder of the volume was divided almost evenly between traditional and chemical preparations. ... In a long section on the elements he openly took the side of the chemists stating that the four elements were insufficient to explain observations. ... The chemical section included plates illustrating chemical equipment as well as chemical characters and symbols" (Debus). While Charas wrote several works, the present pharmacopoeia is his best-known and was soon translated into English (The royal pharmacopeia ..., 1678), German and even Chinese, and as such the first European medical book translated into Chinese. - With the engraved bookplate of the Espich family ("Insign Espichiorum famil") and small label of the pharmacist Koenig. A few occasional spots, some stains to the title-page and page 9, a negligible waterstain at the head of some leaves, head of the spine chipped, but otherwise in good condition. Krivatsy 2371.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord." - Apostles' Creed 'Exposition of the Creed' was a work by John Pearson, originally published in 1659. It is a collection of articles based on sermons Pearson delivered. It is considered the most influential work on the Apostles' Creed in the Anglican Church.

(Lowndes 1810) The DNB notes of this work that it "forms a complete catena of the best authorities upon doctrinal points.".

Martinelli, Agostino
1676. Important 17th century work on the Tiber River and its main tributary, the Nera, comprised of 58 pp. of text with inscriptions, engraved frontispiece featuring a portrait of Pope Innocent XI, engraved illustration at the back of putti, and 21 engraved plates (19 of which are folding), primarily views of different types of bridges along the rivers, together with waterfalls, a large map of the Tiber as it runs along the ancient Roman road between Gallese and Magliano, and some attempted solutions to combat erosion along the riverbanks. Some extremely minor toning and foxing, overall very fine condition. 8vo. Original vellum, some light soiling and rubbing. Rome (Nicolò Angelo Tinassi) 1676. Rossetti 6710; Cicognara 940; Olschki 17525. The first edition of this notable work. The original project to describe the bridges originated from the risk of collapse of a bridge on the Nera near Narni. Martinelli then undertook the work of reporting on the courses of the two rivers, accompanied by images of all of the main bridges, "che facilitano sopra di questi il transito". Added on at the end of the volume is a supplementary chapter, "Discorso della Nauigatione da Perugia à Roma", with the goal to "rendere navigabile il Tevere da Perugia, ad Orte". Some of the plates contained in this volume are engraved by Albert Gnoli, while others are initialed "A.M. del. scul." A beautiful copy of a scarce work. [Attributes: First Edition]

London: Thomas Basset & Richard Chiswell, 1676. Copper-engraved map. Image area: 15¼ x 20 inches. Very good. Matted. The first state of Speed's early map of Virginia. As noted by Burden, this was the first map to incorporate information from Augustine Hermann's Virginia and Maryland As it is Planted and Inhabited this present Year 1670 , a landmark map of the region. While the general outlines of the map are taken from John Smith's map of 1612, much of the toponomy derives from Hermann, as well as the representation of Delaware Bay, which did not appear on Smith's map, and a more accurate depiction of the northeastern shore of Chesapeake Bay. With very interesting text on the verso condensed from John Ogilby's America , published in 1671.£Burden 456.

BLOUNT, Thomas
London: Henry Twyford, 1676. Second edition, the first published in 1670 under a slightly different title. According to ESTC, the work is attributed to Billinghurst, but is actually by Thomas Blount, who signs the epistle dedicatory T. B. A relatively early English work on bankruptcy; scarcely more than a half dozen works on the subject precede Blount's Statutes Concerning Bankrupts, most of which are acts, proclamations and cases---the present is one of the only expository works, at least since Daniel Sauter's The Practise of the Banckrupts of These Times [London: William Garret, 1640]. Blount, he of the famous 1656 sesquipedalian dictionary, Glossographia, defines a bankrupt (as per Statute 34 H 8. cap. 4.): viz. Whereas divers and sundry persons, craftily obtaining into their hands great substance of other mens goods, do suddenly flie into parts unknown, or keep their Houses, not minding to pay, or restore unto any of their Creditors their Debts and Duties, but at their own wills and pleasures, consume the substance (obtained by credit) of other men, for their own pleasures and delicate living, against all equity and good Conscience. This was of course the prevailing view of any helpless debtor until the early 20th century in Britain, where one could still be imprisoned for civil debt as late as 1905. Octavo, 148 x 100 x 23 mm (binding), 142 x 95 x 15 mm (text block). A-N8 (N8 blank and present), 206, [2] p. Bound in contemporary calf, rebacked, preserving original spine. Original endpapers.

The Society of St John is regarded as the first religious order of monks in the Anglican Communion since the Reformation. It is noted as being not purely contemplative with the members often undertaking missionary work. This work also contains the signature of Benson to the final leaf. His notes offer his fascinating perspective regarding this influential work of the philosophy of religion and its practical applications. Richard Hooker was an English priest in the Church of England, regarded as one of the most important English theologians of the sixteenth century.

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 18th century leather-binding 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 ! 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, ″ it 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.

PHILLIPPES, Henry
London: Ben Billingsley and Samuel Crouch, 1676. 12mo. (4 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches). [36], 259, [11], 24, [6]pp. (errors in pagination as issued). Woodcut illustrations. Later mottled calf gilt by Riviere & Son, spine gilt with raised bands, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A guide to rebuilding the city of London after the Great Fire in 1666. The first part of this fifth edition contains information and advice for both landlords and tenants interested in buying the ground plots and foundations of houses burned down during the Great Fire of 1666. The destructive fire lasted four days and is estimated to have destroyed over 13,000 houses and most of the city's buildings, leaving most of the city's residents homeless. In response to this, Phillippes decided to revive this book, adding "many observations, rules, and tables ... about the true worth and value" of said foundations. In the preface Phillippes explains that all copies of former editions were destroyed in the fire and prints this new edition to help rebuild the city "in a more convenient and beautiful Form and Fashion." At the end with separate title (dated 1677) is Phillippe's A Constant Kalendar or, an Alamanack for 300 Years, but more exactly serving for the next XIX Years, Being the Circle of the Moon, or the Golden Number, Beginning the Year of our Lord, 1655.

SHOTTEREL, Robert and Thomas D'URFREY
First and only edition. Octavo. Contemporary black morocco, gilt double panel, gilt floral corner pieces and roll tool borders incorporating tulip and sunflower designs, very neatly rebacked and repaired in matching morocco, margins a little dusty, light spotting to final few leaves, ink ownership to page 1 which reads, "S.S. Banks 1792". pp. [24], 79, [1], complete with the first leaf blank, last leaf supplied from another copy (explanation tipped-in on first blank leaf). [Wing 3647], The explanatory note is in a hand very similar to that of Banks, so it seems likely that the final leaf was supplied at the end of the eighteenth century.

Basilius Valentinus.
Nürnberg Lochner für Hoffmann, 1676. (16,5 x 10 cm). (14) 467 (21) S. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz. Moderner Halbpergamentband im Stil der Zeit. Chemiehistorisch außerordentlich wichtiges Werk, da es die erste Vorschrift zur Herstellung von Ethylchlorid und eine der frühesten Beschreibungen der Salzsäure enthält. - Es wurde 1604 erstmals veröffentlicht und enthält die folgenden Traktate: 1. Triumphwagen Antimonii; 2. Von der Tinctur oder Oleo stibii, Rogeri Baconiis Angli; 3. Von den Particular- und Universal-Tincturen; 4. Vom Stein der Weisen, Theoria und Practica Gregorii Phaedronis Rhodogeri; 5. Der Uhralte Ritterkrieg; 6. Opus saturni Isaaci, Hollandi; 7. Philosophische Betrachtung von der Materia lapidis und seiner Bereitung und 8. De occulta philosophia chemicorum. - "Die chem(ischen) Kenntnisse des Verfassers sind bedeutende. Manche erblicken in Thölde den Verfasser, der tatsächlich eine Anzahl der Basilius-Schriften herausgegeben hat" (Ferchl). Der Basilius Valentinus zugeschriebene Band, eines der wichtigsten Werke der Chemiatrie, trägt wesentlich zur Kenntnis des Antimons bei. Aufgrund der Eigenschaften Gold und Silber zu scheiden sowie eine Reihe von Krankheiten zu heilen erlangte das Antimon große Bedeutung für die Alchemie. - Basilius Valentinus, Naturwissenschaftler und Arzt, lebte angeblich 1413 als Mönch im Kloster St. Peter zu Erfurt. Verfasser der ihm zugeschriebenen Werke ist möglicherweise der als Herausgeber genannte Johann Thölde, Kämmerer und Pfannenmeister des Salzwerks zu Frankenhausen (ausführlich: NDB I, 620). - Unterschiedlich stark gebräunt und di … [Click Below for Full Description]

BACON, Francis
London: W.G. for R. Scot, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswel, 1676. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon An extremely rare printing of Francis Bacon's "History and Reigns" which begins with that of Henry VII". In this book, Bacon provides a detailed account of the life of Henry VII, however, not just from a historical perspective, but also providing a sense of the character of the king. From Bacon himself: "He was careful and liberal to obtain good intelligence from all parts abroad... Towards his Queen he was nothing uxorious; nor scarce indulgent; but companiable and respective, and without jealousy. Towards his children he was full of paternal affection, careful of their education, aspiring to their high advancement" (Craik) However, because of his attitude and often lackadaisical temperament, he was thought of as an incompetent leader unable to overcome serious difficulties. Francis Bacon creates one of the best biographical sketches of the late-15th-century English monarch. According to Bergeron, "[This work] exists as Bacon's only finished full-scale history of an era....[it is also] Bacon's portrait of King Henry's relationship with his wife Queen Elizabeth." This book has also been nicknamed "The first modern classic of English history". It is a culmination of Bacon's experience in politics and government and in a fine literary style, Bacon analyzes the King's actions and political issues.

THATCHER, Margaret.) SPEED, John.
1676. Copper engraving with hand colouring (later, probably Victorian), 38 x 50 cm, mounted and glazed within gilt wooden frame. Posthumous Margaret Thatcher printed library label pasted on reverse. Map with a couple of light creases; framed a bit worn at extremities. In good condition overall. Margaret Thatcher's own copy of John Speed's map of her native Lincolnshire, including Grantham, where she grew up. Speed's map was first published in 1611 in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain, and was reprinted many times over the next two centuries - this 1676 printing can be distinguished by the Basset and Chiswell imprint (Tooley, Maps and Map-Makers, p. 84). Coincidentally, Thatcher appointed John Speed's descendent, Keith Speed (1934-2018), to the position of parliamentary undersecretary of state for defence in 1979; she sacked him two years later when he opposed her defence cuts. The print remained in Thatcher's possession until her death in 2013, and has since been acquired directly from her estate.

1676. livre ancien collection antique old antique collectible rare book Leçons de perspective positive Jacques Androuet du Cerceau DESCRIPTION Paris, chez Mamert Patisson, 1676 ? Grand in-4 (32 x 22.5 cm), reliure pastiche demi-basane, dos orné, tranches rouges. Recueil comprenant 43 planches (sur 60) seules, sans le texte. Ce livre sur la perspective à l'usage des peintres, des sculpteurs et des architectes a été entrepris pendant une pause d'Androuet Cerceau au cours de son travail sur Les plus excellents bastiments de France. Il a paru pour la première fois en 1576. Ce livre amène dans sa version complète soixante leçons dans l'art de la perspective, chaque leçon sur des problèmes de plus en plus difficiles comme aide à l'artiste dans la construction de perspectives. Les leçons sont illustrées clairement avec une planche à chaque leçon. Une deuxième édition a paru exactement un siècle plus tard, en 1676. Les pages de titre et faux-titre sont absentes de cet exemplaire, mais il s'agit vraisemblablement de l'édition de 1676, la page de faux-titre manuscrite indiquant cette date. Cependant une copie (sur papier ancien) de la page de titre indique la date (erronée) 1572 ! Par ailleurs la numérotation des planches a été modifiée (numéro gratté et changé) pour conserver un ordre en compensant les planches lacunaires. Les 43 planches présentes sont les suivantes : X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX, XX, XXI, XXII, XXIII, XXIV, XXV, XXVI, XXVII, XXVIII, XXIX, XXX, XXXI, XXXII, XXXIII, XXXIIII, XXXV, XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XL, XLI, XLII, XLIII, XLVI, XLVII, XLVIII, … [Click Below for Full Description]
