Franciso Molloy
Rome: 1676. The condition of this book is very good for its age. There is a library stamp on the top of the spine and also a very old inside cover label that indicates it was withdrawn from the Mpls. public library. On the back inside cover is a date stamp that says Aug 18 1902. The book has a little dust or dirt on the cover and on the pages when you examine it. To me it looks like handling wear on front cover and dust on the outside edge of the pages. The front inside page that is the cover photo if you look at it as a single page in the light you can see small holes in the page that reads Minneapolis Minnesota, on the back of that page is writing that look like it was use by the library for cataloging it for placement in the library. Very solid spine and pages, nothing is loose or falling apart. I purchased a couple of old boxes of book from a estate sale and this is one of the books that was in those boxes. It has taken me awhile to figure out what this one is all about because of its uniqueness. To start with it is not a language that I can read, so I have been trying to research this for a while. On eBay they have modern updated copies in English so that was of little help. When I googled it a lot of stuff comes up and I found boxes that are up for auction on some high-end fancy auction site. When I try to compare what they have and what I'm trying to sell they appear to be the same. I can't saw that this is a 1st edition for sure but it is the same as the ones I find in those auctions page for page. I can't tell you if this is the original cover to this book either. … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed by J.M. for John Williams. Very Rare An Exposition of the Creed, 1676. Rebound Spine. Excellent condition and 344 years old. " One of the most influential works on the Apostles' Creed in the Anglican Church, by 'the greatest divine of the age'. The Apostles' Creed, first mentioned in a letter from a Milan Synod in 390 AD, is a statement of Christian belief widely used in churches of the Western tradition. It was based on Christian theological understanding of the Canonical Gospels, NT letters and to some extent the Old Testament. An Exposition of the Creed by John Pearson was first published in 1659, appearing in many editions over the next quarter century; its notes are a model of patristic learning. The book is described in the English Dictionary of National Biography as 'within its limits, the most perfect and complete production of English dogmatic theology'. The Exposition was developed from Pearson's sermons at St Clements, Cheapside, London, and was dedicated to his parishioners.John Pearson (1613-1686), English theologian and scholar, attended Eton College and Queens College Cambridge, and became a Fellow of King's College Cambridge in 1634. He took orders in 1639 and served variously at Salisbury, Suffolk and as chaplain in 1645 to the forces of Lord George Goring, a Royalist General in the Civil War. Pearson disputed with prominent Roman Catholics on schism and with Puritans, and became interested in Bishop Walton's Polyglot Bible. His major work, the celebrated Exposition of the Creed was first published in 1659. After the Restoration, Pearson was … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOYLE, Roger Earl of Orrery
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Early Irish literature imitating French heroic drama! Roger Boyle, was a 17th-century Irish politician, known for becoming the first Early of Orrery. His political importance came through his correspondence with both Charles II and Oliver Cromwell, the latter of whom offered Boyle a role in the English conquest of Ireland. He published a novel 'Parthenissa' in a series of installments, which became his most popular piece of romantic prose. It is known to be the "only serious lengthy imitation in English of the French heroic-historical romances written by Gomberville and Scudery." (Miller). This rare 1676 English edition was the first complete edition; prior to this edition, each of the individual part were published by themselves beginning in 1651. [Attributes: First Edition]

Clarendon formé cet ouvrage comme une critique, mais le travail en incontestable une attaque sur le livre de Hobbes. Selon Zagorin, « « Sondage » est un livre d'un mérite considérable et d'intérêt... et est l'instruction plus longue, plus générale de la philosophie politique qui a laissé de Clarendon. » C'est dans cet ouvrage qui Clarendon formulé avec fermeté que « Leviathan » a favorisé la domination du gouvernement usurpatrice qui a renversé le roi, et en outre, que Hobbes avait écrit cette œuvre afin de faire son retour en Angleterre de l'exil. (Zagorin). Plus de la moitié des « Enquête » traite discussions politiques et religieux trouvées à « Léviathan ».

The writers' problems are discussed in great detail, subdivided in chapters: their atheism and materialism; their pointless pride; their unhappiness; their envy; their sneering; their constant badmouthing; their avarice etc. He offered several original insights, like the often quoted fact that he accused Jeronimus Cardanus (1501-1577?) of having written a book to demonstrate the existence of the soul but using arguments so weak and faulty as to induce the readers to think otherwise. Only the first blank page shows some wormholes, the remaining 1184 pages are in perfect conditions. With 2 ex libris. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

London: Bassett & Chiswell. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, good margins) An elegant uncolored 1676 edition county map of Bedford Shire; taken from the highly acclaimed Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius, these maps are lauded for their high level of accuracy, detail, and craftsmanship. This is considered one of the finest maps depicting Bedfordshire available today. A decorative cartouche bearing the King's coat of arms and the title, cherubim, dividers - we already have a taste of the elaborate features. The county is bordered by Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and Buckinghamshire The town plan of Bedforde is inset by the right hand corner, held by a Roman general. The map is decorated by a small title cartouche-like coat of arms and a simple compass rose. The town is most well-known for St. Paul's Church, engraved central on the map. The town's other significant roads and buildings are marked by a letter and guide for facilitated reference. It is noteworthy to mention this plan was mapped by John Speed himself, as indicated by his signature scale of 'Pases'. The map is further embellished with the shields of several Earls and Dukes. Notable individuals include: John Plantaginet (Lancaster), 1st Duke of Bedford (14140 and brother of King Henry V; Ingelram Coucy, 1st Earl of Bedford (1366) and son-in-law to King Edward III; and John Russell, 1st Earl of Bedford (1550).

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, crease centerfold). A superb uncolored map of Flintshire, taken from John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Engraved on copper plates in Amsterdam by renowned Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the most decorative maps of the county. Hondius makes excellent use of space in his engravings of the county; filling any blank spaces of the sea with sea monsters, full mast ships, and an elegant compass rose. The map is embellished with three insets; two of which are the town plans of Flint and of Saint Asaph. It is noteworthy to mention that these two plans were mapped by Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. The third inset is an enlarged illustration of St. Winefride's Well. The building gets its name from the healing waters have been said to cause miraculous cures. The legend of Saint Winifred tells how, in AD 660, Caradoc, the son of a local prince, severed the head of the young Winifred after she spurned his advances. A spring rose from the ground at the spot where her head fell and she was later restored to life by her uncle, Saint Beuno. It is claimes to be the oldest continually visited pilgrimage sites. A highly desirable element of Speed's maps is his depiction of important events of British history in vignettes. Here we can see a moment of action during the end of Richard II's reign as he is betrayed into the hands of Henry Bullingbrook. It is dated as '1400 Febr. 13', marking the king's death.

London: Bassett & Chiswell. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge). This superb county map of Westmorland delights the eyes with its elegance and detail. It is a stunning part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The plate was engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius and the map exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment, reflecting the pervasive and appealing Mannerist style of the period, with strapwork cartouches, heraldic crests, and figures. The accuracy and detail of Speed's county maps is what makes them so highly desirable. The title cartouche presents itself nobly with the coat of arms of King Charles II. This smaller county of Britain stretches its borders with Cumberland, Yorkshire, and Lancashire. The town plan of Kendale is characterized on the left portion of the map. Kendale's homes, fortresses, and halls are met with a quaint pastoral background. A letter guide marks the significant roads and buildings of the town.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London:Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge). An excellent map by John Speed of the English Islands of: Farne and Holy Island, off the Northumbrian coast; and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. This map is a part of the highly regarded Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. It was elaborated engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610. "Jodocus Hondius celavit_Anno 1610" The Islands is a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in Speed's Atlas. Each quartered map is decorated with small title cartouche, a compass rose, dividers and a mileage scale. The Islands themselves are detailed with significant buildings, fortresses, and windmills. The German Ocean and British Sea surround these islands. The coat of arms of Charles I as Duke of York are found at the bottom of the page, flanked by early revival putti and framed with light fretwork. The Holy Island was made by James Burnell; otherwise "Performed by Iohn Speede. […]" The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The uncolored editions of Speed's maps are classic and highly sought after, as they reflect the true quality of Speed's work unhindered by colorists. The examples of this map of the Islands 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, watermark, light spots in centerfold). This stunning uncolored map of Stafford is a part of John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The plate was engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius, exhibiting the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment. Hondius played with elements of symmetry in engraving this map; as seen by the aligning framed town insets, descriptions, and cartouches. This map boasts two town plans, Stafford and Lichfield. The latter was mapped out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Pases' banner. Each town plan comes complete with their arms, a compass rose, and letter key to guide our understanding of the significant roads and buildings in each. A highly sought after detail of Speed's maps are his vignettes depicting great English battles. This map offers us the Battle of Blore Heath, one of the first major battles in the Wars of the Roses. It was fought on 23 September 1459 in Staffordshire. The story behind the Blore Heath is neatly framed. The final strapwork frame holds the first royal arms of Stafford. "This baronye of Staffor is very anciet and hath bene Earldom, the Nobles wherefod hath borne the title of Dukes of Buckingham". 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 Briti … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629).
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge) A handsome uncolored 1676 edition county map of Penbrokshyre [Pembrokeshire]; taken from John Speed's illustrious Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Engraved by Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius in 1610, the map is a prime example of the level of craftsmanship and detail which went into the making of this Atlas. The map boasts elaborate elements to delight our eyes. A decorative title cartouche with the royal arms introduces this mountainous county to the viewer. Percelye Hill, the highest point of the county, especially stands out thanks to its beautiful shadows engraved Hondius. Two town plan insets belong to this map: Penbroke and St. Davids. The fairly symmetrical plans exhibit a compass rose and appropriate shield. Pembroke is principally highlighted for its royal significance as the birthplace of Henry Tudor, the future King Henry VII. St Davids was final resting place of Wales' namesake patron saint; making it the de facto ecclesiastical capital of Wales. The exceptional point to these two cities is that they were mapped out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the signature 'Scale of Pases'. The edge of the map sets up a selection of eleven Earls and Dukes, which ruled over Pembokeshire over the centuries.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, light foxing, offsetting, creased corner, light ink rubbing) An extraordinary uncolored 1676 edition of Anglesey; part of the renowned Theatre of the Empire of Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. This edition was published by Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell in London. The copper plates used for the printing of John Speed's maps were engraved by Dutch mapmaker, Jodocus Hondius, in 1610. Hondius is most well-known for his elaborate, early maps of Europe and the New World. These maps created are of the most highly sought after county maps; as they are famous for their accuracy, level of detail, and craftsmanship. This map of Anglesey is one of the best county maps available. An island off of the coat of Wales, Anglesey is considered the largest island of Wales. This is expertly portrayed by Hondius' engraving, sitting in the center surrounded by the Irish Sea and its calm waves. This map is further embellished with a gorgeous compass rose and extended rhumb lines; two full mast sailing ships, and elegant strapwork cartouches. A plan of Beaumaris is provided in the top right corner, with a legend giving the location of its most significant landmarks. Speed does a wonderful job highlighting the Beaumaris Castle, built in 1282 by King Edward I as part of his campaign to conquer the north of Wales. This town was mapped by John Speed himself, as it bares the 'Scale of Pases' as indication. The plan is decorated with the shield of Anglesey; … [Click Below for Full Description]
