        L'homme de René Descartes, et la formation du foetus, avec les Remarques de Louis de la Forge. A quoy l'on a ajouté le Monde ou Traité de la Lumière du mesme Autheur

      Paris: Chez Theodore Girard, 1677 Illustrated with intext woodcuts. Second edition. Bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered and decorated in gilt, board edges decorated in gilt, all edges speckled red. A good copy, with some loss to the calf on the rear board, resewn endbands, some paper reinforcement to the inner hinges, minor splitting to the front outer hinge, rubbing to the spine, light scratching to the boards, minor gouge to the rear free endpaper, ink stain to the rear pastedown, a few faint creases and spots to the otherwise clean pages. The second French edition of Descartes' seminal treaties on physiology and natural philosophy. Originally written as physiological appendix to his Discourse on Method, both the Treatise on Man and Treatise on Light were originally intended to be paired with a third segment - the Treatise on Soul - under the collected title The World. Notably, Descartes did not publish these treatises during his lifetime, lest he suffer the fate of Galileo and be persecuted for his research; the first editions were published over a decade after his death. Treatise on Man was first published in Latin as De homine in 1662 and then in French as Traité de l'homme in 1664. Treatise on Light was published in part in Latin in the textbook Principia philosophiae in 1644 and in entirety in French as Le monde de Mr. Descartes ou la Traité de la Lumière in 1664. This is the second French edition for both treatises. Both the Treatise on Light and the Treatise on Man are notable for their descriptions of natural processes as scientific, if not mechanical, functions. Treatise on Man, which focuses on the human body, is the summation of Descartes' fascination with the internal functions. An influential text in the fields of science, medicine and philosophy, it is renowned for Descartes early observations on blood circulation, muscle reflex, the pineal gland, and human cognition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Historisch verhael, of beschryving van de voyagie, gedaen onder de suite van den heere Koenraad van Klenk, extraordinaris ambassadeur . aan zijne zaarsche majesteyt van Moscovien.Amsterdam, Jan Claesz ten Hoorn, 1677. 4to. With etched frontispiece and 6 etched folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. 19th-century boards.

      - Adelung II, pp. 359-360; Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 46; Muller, Bibl. Neerlando-Russe 200; Tiele, Bibl. 602; Verkruijsse, Romeyn de Hooghe 1677.04. First edition of a valuable account detailing a Dutch embassy to Russia (1675-1676). The objective was to gain Russian participation in the anti-Swedish and anti-French alliance, and Koenraad Klenk, with his expert knowledge of Russian language and culture, was the ideal choice to lead the embassy. The mission was subsidized with more than 50,000 guilders, an extraordinary amount which was even exceeded during the journey. Although the embassy was well received and the Russians were showered with gifts, Klenk failed to persuade the Tsar to enter into war with Sweden. The six impressively evocative plates by Romeyn de Hooghe are typical examples of his rich allegorical imagery. Final leaves restored, with the missing text supplied in manuscrip, some soling, binding worn. An excellent source for the history of Russia and its foreign relations during the reign of Tsar Aleksei Mikhailovich. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Opera Posthuma.

      [Amsterdam]: [Jan Rieuwertsz], 1677. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (205 x 160 mm). [40], 614, [32]; [2], 112, [8] pp. Roman, italic and Hebrew type, woodcut device on title, several woodcut text illustrations, content and errata leaves at end. Without the frontispiece portrait as usual. Contemporary stiff vellum, title in manuscript to spine, boards ruled in blind and with blind-stamped central arabesque (spine a bit browned, vellum partly chipped at spine, corners little bumped, tailbands loose), sprinkled edges. Internally quite fresh and clean with only minor browning. ----Van der Linde 22; PMM 153 (note). FIRST EDITION of Spinoza's posthumous works, including his influential Ethica, more geometrico demonstrata, the work which established Spinoza's reputation as a rationalist and "atheist." It is considered the first systematic exposition of pantheism in which God is identified with the entire universe. With the 'geometric method' Spinoza sought to apply mathematical reasoning to metaphysics. This led to the identification of God with the universe, which came to be viewed as a rational philosophy proclaiming the divinity of nature. The concept was embraced by various German Enlightenment interpreters (Lessing, Jacobi, Herder and Goethe) who, however, rejected Spinoza's method. Spinoza's correspondence among the posthumous works is particularly interesting, providing easier access to his philosophy, as well as dealing with optics, the telescope, and his views on Descartes. The least controversial of his writings, a simple Hebrew grammar composed at the request of friends, may have inspired scriptural studies among a wider audience than his metaphysical readership. The work was banned in Holland in 1678 and placed on the Index in 1679. Very Good.

        1677 State of Innocence John Dryden Fall of Man John Milton Paradise Lost RARE

      [London : printed by T[homas]. N[ewcomb]. for H. Herringman, at the Anchor in the lower walk of the New Exchange, 1677.] Second edition. - 1677 State of Innocence John Dryden Fall of Man John Milton Paradise Lost RARE “Kindness for man, and pity for his fate, May mix with bliss and yet not violate. Their Heavenly harps a lower strain began And in soft music, mourned the fall of man!” – John Dryden, State of Innocence, A rare second edition of John Dryden’s adaption of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” Dryden intended for it to be performed with music, however, only this, the libretto, was ever produced. This rare 17th-century printing is complete with scene direction and staging, presumably Dryden’s own notes and vision of the scenes. The scene direction that was required was deemed too expensive and demanding for either the King’s Company theatre or the Royal Theatre on Drury Lane, and thus never appeared on stage. This work is unique in that John Milton omitted a dedication (whether intentionally or inadvertently is unknown). The responsibility fell to John Dryden, a friend of Milton’s, whose title page reads “The State of Innocence, And Fall of Man” – the title of Dryden’s play. This book is textually complete in all regards. Collation and signatures of this printing meet that of the 1677 edition collation. (Hoe II, 106). Item number: #689 Price: $950 DRYDEN, John; The state of innocence and fall of man : an opera, written in heroique verse and dedicated to her Royal Highness, the Dutchess.

        Recentis Romae Ichonographia .

      Norimberga 1677 - Grande pianta della città, stampata su due fogli reali, copia di quella realizzata da Giovan Battista Falda nel 1667 per papa Alessandro VII. Topograficamente la carta del Sandrart è fedele a quella del Falda; le modifiche sostanziali sono nei cartigli, con le scritte in tedesco, e nella dedica a papa Innocezo XI. Il cartiglio di destra raffigura gli stemmi dei Rioni, mentre in basso al centro sono incise delle piccole vedute delle sette chiese giubilari. Incisa a quattro mani con Johannes Meyer, questa pianta risulta per l’eleganza del segno, più raffinata rispetto al Falda, intagliata dal francese Lhuiler. Acquaforte, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rara. Great city plan printed on two royal sheets, copy of the plan realized by Giovan Battista Falda in 1667 for the Pope Alessandro VII. Sandrart’s plan faithfully copies the one realized by Falda; the main changes are in the cartouches, with a German text, and in the dedication to Pope Innocezo XI. T he cartouche on the right depicts the coat-of-arm of the Rioni, while on lower centre there are small views of the seven Jubilee Churche. Sandrart carved this plan together with Johannes Meyer; the result is a far more refained work compared to that of Falda, carved by Lhuiler. Etching, with margins, in excellent condition. Rare.

        EL ENTE DILUCIDADO. DISCURSO ÚNICO NOVÍSIMO QUE MUESTRA ay en Naturaleza Animales Irracionales Invisibles, y quales sean por.

      En la Emprenta Real,, Madrid 1677 - 14.5x20. 11hh. 438pp. 9hh. Portada grabada, con orla de ángeles. Escudo en la 1ª h. de la dedicatoria. Portada reforzada, con pérdidas por lo márgenes, refuerzo antiguo en el márgen de las siguinetes 2 hojas. Picadura en el margen interior de las últimas hojas. Este es literalmente un libro fantástico - en el índice encontramos: "Qvestion vnica, en que se prueba que ay animales inuisibles, y que por la mayor parte lo sean, los que se llaman Duendes, trasgos o fantasmas. Si podrà vn hombre concebir de si mismo. Qve los duendes tienen figura de religioso. Como enriquece el Lobo al hombre que mira.[y¡!] Si el hombre puede artificiosamente bolar." (pero, qué cosas tenía). En el curso del libro habla de toda clase de monstuosidades y rarezas - "Otra semejante muger marina [la mitad figura de doncella, y la mitad de pez] se cogio en el Lago de Olanda. el año de 1403, llevaronla a la Ciudad de Harlem, y siendo assi, que estava desnuda, se dexò vestir, comia pan, leche y otros manjares que le davan, aprendiò a hilar, y tros oficios mugeriles; enseñaronle a arrodillarse à vn Crucifixo. Los Elefantes, no solo entienden a hablar de su tierra, sino tambien han aprendido gramática, y à escrivir, y las Lenguas Latina, y Griega, y la Barbara." Como no es de extrañar, muchos ejemplares de esta curiosísima obra fueron destruidos. La 1ª ed. es de 1676. El autor, zamorano nació en 1628. La obra ha despertado gran entusiasmo en Juan Valera, quien quería que se se incluyera en la Biblioteca de Autores Españoles de Ribandeneyra. Muy raro. No lo encontramos ni el la BNE ni en el CCPB. Ce livre est littéralement un livre fantastique- dans son indice nous trouvons: Ce n'est pas étrange, beaucoup d'exemplaires de cette curiosité d'oeuvre, furent détruit. La première édition est de 1676. L'auteur, de Zamora, est né en 1628. L'oeuvre a réveillé un très grand enthousiasme pour Jean Vialera, qui ne voulait pas, qu'il puisse s'inclure dans la Bibliothèque, d' Auteurs Espagnols de Ribandeneyra. Très étrange. On ne peut le trouver, ni dans la BNE (Bibliothèque Nationale Espagnole), ni dans le CCPB. Holandesa piel de época, con extensas pérdidas en el lomo. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Vechtstreek antieke kaart - Petrus Schenk.

      BUITENPLAATSEN IN DE VECHTSTREEK?Nieuwe kaart van Mynden en de 2 Loosdrechten, mitsgaders van 's-Graveland nevens het gerecht van Breukelen en Loenersloot??. Kopergravure voor het eerst uitgegeven rond 1677 en herzien na 1702. Dit exemplaar werd heruitgegeven door Petrus Schenk rond 1720 en werd in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48 x 56 cm.Deze weinig bekende overzichtskaart van het middengedeelte van de Vechtstreek (tussen Nederhorst den Berg en Maarssen), is in z?n tijd waarschijnlijk een bestseller onder buitenplaats bezitters geweest. Ca. 155 buitenplaatsen aan de Angstel, de Vecht en te ?s-Graveland worden genoemd.De buitens ontstonden in een periode van enorme opbloei van handel en nijverheid in de steden (met name Amsterdam). Een nieuwe sociale bovenlaag van de bevolking was in korte tijd rijk geworden door handel met overzeese gebieden en kon zich een riante tweede woning in een landschappelijk fraai gebied veroorloven. ?s Winters woonde men in de stad, maar ?s zomers hadden ze met hun talrijk personeel een aangenaam leven in hun buitenhuis. De Vechtstreek was daarbij geliefd door de gemakkelijke bereikbaarheid met openbare trekschuiten en particuliere jachten.De herziening van de kaart werd medegefinancierd door Jeronimus de Haze de Georgio, een belangrijke Amsterdamse regent die in Loosdrecht een buitenplaats bezat. Voor zijn bijdrage krijgt hij zijn wapen op de kaart gezet.Literatuur: Donkersloot-de Vrij ?De Vechtstreek??, nr. 20bPrijs: ?3.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

      Paris: Chez Theodore Girard, 1677 Illustrated with intext woodcuts. Second edition. Bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered and decorated in gilt, board edges decorated in gilt, all edges speckled red. A good copy, with some loss to the calf on the rear board, resewn endbands, some paper reinforcement to the inner hinges, minor splitting to the front outer hinge, rubbing to the spine, light scratching to the boards, minor gouge to the rear free endpaper, ink stain to the rear pastedown, a few faint creases and spots to the otherwise clean pages. The second French edition of Descartes' seminal treaties on physiology and natural philosophy. Originally written as physiological appendix to his Discourse on Method, both the Treatise on Man and Treatise on Light were originally intended to be paired with a third segment - the Treatise on Soul - under the collected title The World. Notably, Descartes did not publish these treatises during his lifetime, lest he suffer the fate of Galileo and be persecuted for his research; the first editions were published over a decade after his death. Treatise on Man was first published in Latin as De homine in 1662 and then in French as Traité de l'homme in 1664. Treatise on Light was published in part in Latin in the textbook Principia philosophiae in 1644 and in entirety in French as Le monde de Mr. Descartes ou la Traité de la Lumière in 1664. This is the second French edition for both treatises. Both the Treatise on Light and the Treatise on Man are notable for their descriptions of natural processes as scientific, if not mechanical, functions. Treatise on Man, which focuses on the human body, is the summation of Descartes' fascination with the internal functions. An influential text in the fields of science, medicine and philosophy, it is renowned for Descartes early observations on blood circulation, muscle reflex, the pineal gland, and human cognition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        In Quator INSTITUTIONUM IMPERALIUM JUSTINIANI, Commentarii [Commentaries upon the Institutes (Codex) of Justinian]

      Georgii Andreae Dolhopffii, Strasburg and Frankfurt 1677 - Thick 4to, Johann Schneidewein (1519-1568) was a German jurist. At the age of eleven, he entered the University of Wittenberg and became acquainted with Martin Luther, when he was a boarder at his house in 1544. At first, Scheidewein studied what we would now describe as the "liberal arts". He then turned his attention to the study of law and was granted the degree of licentiate in 1545 (some accounts say 1544). For the next four years he taught and, in 1551, was granted a professorhip in law at the university. In the years prior to his death, he was often consulted on legal matters of state, and several times took part in deputations to the imperial court at Speyer. He died in Wittenberg in 1568, and his tomb at the Castle Church in that city is close to Luther's. His main work was his Commentaries on Justinian, which were edited by Matthias Wesenbeck and first published in 1573. Our copy is a ninth edition and is bound in vellum with yapped edges and a leather spine in compartments, and bears the copperplate engraved frontispiece of Schneidewein. Pagination: [blank], [frontis.], [3], [Appendix, 8], 1-1904 (double-columned; two page numbers to a page). Index [94]. The vellum shows wear and some soiling. It appears that the joints were at some time in the past repaired, with glue residue showing on boards. Spine leather chipped, and joints beginning to crack at spine ends. Front hinge neatly repaired. Contents tight, with some marginal wear to preliminary pages, else clean with only some very light foxing. Overall, a good plus copy of an important early legal and philosophical text. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The first work was filled with descriptions and illustrations of a wide range of specimens, and had immediate and far reaching influence. Plates are of flora and fauna, rocks and minerals, and some seventy species of fossils from the Jurassic and Cretaceous, including the first known illustration of a dinosaur bone (actually, the knee-end of the thigh bone, which Plot mistakenly thought had come from an elephant taken to Britain in Roman times). Throughout, in his choices of specimens and antiquities to present, Plot seems always to stress the anomalous. Admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757), whose copy this was (or perhaps that of one of his immediate descendants) built the house and lived at Orwell Park, at Nacton in Suffolk, between 1725 and 1757.

        Unsigned Autograph Letter to 'My Dearest brother', the Scottish judge Lord HALTON, (John Maitland, 1616-1682, Secretary for Scotland 1660-1680, 1st Duke, the 'L' of 'CABAL')

      1677 - [Haltoun, Hatton] (Sir Charles Maitland, c. 1620-1691, from 1682 3rd Earl of Lauderdale), as 'His Majesty's Treasurer Depute in Scotland', with transcription, saying that yesterday he received "the letter which the Lords of Councell" in Scotland "were pleas'd to write to me, with the inclosed for the King [not present] which his Majestie was well pleased with, & hath ordered Robin Murray to be sent prisoner by sea. On saterday you shall know the name of the vessell. The witnesses shall also come. On monday God willing I shall begin my journey And by saterday come sennet [one week] after, being the 14 July I hope to be at Lethington. Next post yew shall heare againe . Adieu", address panel with his seal bearing the arms of Scotland within the garter, 1 side 4to and address on conjugate leaf, Whitehall, (Thursday) 28th June dusty, else good including seal impression (Transcription) Whitehall, 28th June Yesterday I received the letter wch the Lords of Councell were pleas'd to write to me, with the inclosed for the King [not present] wch his Maj.tie was well pleased with, & hath ordered Robin Murray to be sent prisoner by sea. On saterday you shall know the name of the vessell. The witnesses shall also come. On monday God willing I shall begin my journey And by saterday come sennet after, being the 14 July I hope to be at Lethington. Next post yew shall heare againe. So with my service to all friends My dearest brother Adieu. Robin Murray is, no doubt, the Robert Murray, imprisoned in England twice in 1677, 'first for "defamation of his majesty and his government" and then more vaguely "in order to his being sent into Scotland to be tried there according to law for several crimes". On both occasions King's Bench bailed him rather than allow his deportation'. (Paul D. Halliday, Habeas Corpus: from England to Empire, 2010, p. 236). The present letter suggests that Lauderdale, whose oversight of Scotland, through his brother when he was in England, was growing daily more oppressive, had gone directly to Charles II to secure Murray's deportation. Lauderdale's brother Charles took his title from the estate of Haltoun, 8 miles west of Edinburgh, acquired through his wife, when he was made a lord of session in 1669, although devoid of legal training or experience as a judge. Murray's case arose out of the French-Dutch War, 1672-1678. Louis XVI wanted to convert the Dutch Republic to Catholicism; his allies, including Great Britain, joined in for reasons of trade. In 1674 Great Britain made a separate peace with the Dutch, but several regiments, including that in which the future Duke of Marlborough was serving, remained in the French service. On 19th May 1675 a Royal Proclamation ordered all such to return home. It was a dead letter. Recruiting, levying and impressment by Colonels of regiments and Captains of companies, especially in Ireland and Scotland, continued. In January 1677, one Harriot was part of a load shipped under harsh duress from Edinburgh to Ostend, where he and others were freed by the Spanish governor. Back in London, he was recommended by the Spanish Ambassador's secretary to one John Harrington, in whose chamber he met Murray and told him his story. Harrington took him to see Lord Cavendish and other MPs, and Murray, according to Harriot, passed his story on to the Duke of Hamilton. Murray also warned Harriot to avoid Lauderdale, the Secretary for Scotland. (In 1672, Lauderdale had put Murray, a Scottish laird, in irons; Murray had not been in Scotland since). In March 1677, Harrington was brought before the King and his Council. The supplying of men to Louis XIV reflected on Lauderdale. The King, whose was always ambiguous towards France, sat stony-faced. When Harrington refused to name the MPs he had consulted, the Council committed him to the Tower for contempt. Murray too was arrested and imprisoned on 14th March. On Friday 17th March 1677, the Commons resolved that people who continued to supply the French with t

Bound with a complete copy of Spinoza's opus, Opera Posthuma(Præfationem,The Ethics. the Tractatus Politicus, the Tractatus de Intellectus Emendatione, Epistolae, & ad eas responsiones, Compendium Grammatices Linguae Hebraeae with errata). Both works bound in one, contemporary stiff vellum binding. Numerous contemporary owner notes in Latin. Binding with usual rubbing, top edge dust stained with age, else a very nice, sound, and internally clean copy.********Opera Posthuma comes up at auction frequently enough, but Arcana Atheismi is a ghost. This is the only copy to appear in any auction or sales records since 1860 and just 3 copies are listed on OCLC interred in Dutch libraries. A true rarity of Spinoza collecting.*************Frans Kuyper was a Dutch Socinian Christian – I won't go into the details of their beliefs, but as seen throughout Christianity, disagreements about all manner of theological minutiae would result in various offshoot sects. He also owned a printing house in Amsterdam and partook in the assault of Spinoza as an atheist in Arcana Atheismi.*** "Spinoza's atheism was mainly deduced from his comments in the Tractatus theologico politicus on the identity of God's will and intellect, and from his identification of the power of God and the power of Nature. As Spinoza's detractors increased their output and musings, it became generally agreed that Baruch was an atheist. An atheist who had covered up his feelings through the contortions of his writings and had to be revealed as soon as possible. Kuyper's contribution to the assault was direct – Arcana Atheismi Revelata, or Secrets of Atheism Revealed." (Van Bunge)***

        Les médecins à la censure

      chez Louis Gontier : 1677 : Paris : 12mo: ã6 A-2G8,4 2H6, 192 leaves, pp. [12] 370 [2], last page blank, typographic device on title signed 'DF', woodcut headpieces and initials. : A dialogue between Cariste, a cleric and advocate, Cleante, a gentleman, and Sosandre, a well known doctor. The lawyer and gentleman throw a series of objections to medicine at Sosandre who defends his profession. Bezançon insists this is not an apologia for medicine, the reader must see for himself if Sosandre's replies are reasonable. In the seventh conversation Bezançon quotes the preface to Tartuffe, to show that Molière's condemnation of the profession was no more than comic licence.Apparently a doctor himself, Bezançon wrote another polemic Les medecine pretendüe reformée (Paris, 1683) and a more strictly medical work Nouveau traité des fièvres (Paris, 1690). He is not noticed by Hoefer, Bayle and Thillaye, or Hirsch.Dedicated to Louise Henriette de Cominge, Comtesse de Grandpré.

Adversaria IV, p. 84; Bierens de Haan 2894; WorldCat & KVK (this copy only); not in STCN. First and only editions of three rare and interesting Dutch mathematical and astronomical works, one known only from the present copy and an 18th century reference. Ad 1: An astronomical work with information on the orbits of the sun, moon and planets, the positions of the stars and dates of solar and lunar eclipses. It includes new calculations of the orbit of Mercury, based on the work of the famous astronomers Petrus Gassendus and Hevelius making use of data from its 1677 transit of the sun. An appendix gives instructions for constructing various astronomical dials for calculating the positions of the moon and planets and the times and extents of eclipses. Ad 2: A fascinating work challenging the possibility of calculating longitude at sea, whether using the position of the moon, a pendulum clocks, an hourglass or the magnetic declination. Determination of longitude was one of the greatest problems of the science of navigation and Slikker argues that the problem is insolvable. While not literally true it proved impractical for navigators until John Harrison in England developed an accurate marine chronometer, described in a 1767 publication. Measuring the exact position of the moon proved too difficult for most navigators with simple instruments. Ad 3: Only copy located of an astronomical and astrological work on the calculation of the orbit of the sun and its position in the twelve constellations: it was known to Arrenberg in 1788 but the 19th-century references may have known his description or the present copy (then in the Royal Library in Berlin). Luchtenburg (active ca. 1684-1706) taught astronomy, geography and navigation in Rotterdam. In the present work he criticizes calculations published in almanacs for the year 1699. With stamp of the Royal Library in Berlin and the bookplate of the Mexican bibliophile José G. Herrera Alcala. Ad 2 incomplete (pp. 145-152 have been torn out) and the plates in ad 1 and folding table (with a tear repaired) in ad 3 slightly browned. Otherwise a good copy. The binding is worn.

Registré sur le Livre des Librairies & Imprimeurs de Paris le premier Décembre 1671. Achevé d'imprimer pour la premiére fois le 15. Décembre 1671." This is the second edition, published 6 years after the first. Louis Maimbourg's histories and his belief that the Roman Catholic church in France should maintain some independence from papal control put him out of favor with the Catholic church. This is a very scarce book. .
