      Frankfurt In Verlegung derer Lanckischen Erben. Gedruckt bey Johann Erich Hahnen. 1677 1. Auflage (Erstausgabe) ca. 960 unpaginierte Blätter (= ca. 1900 S.), Folio (= 27 x 40 x 14 cm), Original Schweinsleder-Band der Zeit auf 6 Bünden. 1 ganzs. Titelkupfer und 2 ganzs. Kupfer-Portraits. Vorsatz etwas lose, Titelkupfer faltig mit alt-geklebtem Riss, Einband an den Kanten bestoßen und durch Gebrauch an den oberen Ecken und am Kapital etwas aufgefleddert. Bindung intakt und stabil. Einige Wurmspuren, aber ohne Textverlust. Der imposante Folioband kann noch immer als Nachschlagewerk benutzt werden, am besten auf einem Lesepult. Friedrich Lanckisch der Jüngere (1618-1669) entstammt einer Leipziger Druckerfamilie. Sein Vater Friedrich Lanckisch d.Ä. hatte 1617 die Tochter des Leipziger Druckers Valentin Am Ende geheiratet und dessen Betrieb übernommen. Lanckisch d.J. heiratete 1652 die Tochter Maria des Leipziger Buchhändlers und Ratsherrn Henning Groß und fusionierte beide Betriebe. So konnte er sowohl die immensen Druck- wie auch die aufwändigen Vertriebsarbeiten dieser Bibelkonkordanz bewältigen. Lanckisch hat die Fertigstellung dieser Konkordanz allerdings nicht mehr erlebt, sie wurde von seinen Erben vollendet,herausgegeben und verlegt.Die Lanckisch-Konkordanz ist für den lutherischen Theologen und Pfarrer ein unentbehrliches Hilfsmittel zur Textexegese. Sie bietet ein vollständiges deutsches Wörterverzeichnis der Luther-Bibel, wobei jedes Wort auf die hebräische und griechische Formulierung im Originaltext zurückgeführt wird. Nur so kann Luthers Anweisung befolgt werden, die vorschreibt, dass das Wort Gottes immer nur nach der Schrift auszulegen sei. Lanckisch stellte diese Konkordanz auf Veranlassung seines Landesherrn, des Herzogs Ernst von Sachsen her. Ihn und seinen Sohn Herzog Friedrich v. Sachsen zeigen die beiden Fürstenportaits des Nürnberger Kupferstechers Joachim von Sanrdart (1606-1688). Versand D: 5,00 EUR Konkordanz, Bibelkonkordanz, Theologie, LutherBibel, Luther, Sachsen.

        A NARRATIVE OF THE TROUBLES WITH THE INDIANS IN NEW- ENGLAND, FROM THE FIRST PLANTING THEREOF IN THE YEAR 1607, TO THIS PRESENT YEAR 1677. BUT CHIEFLY OF THE LATE TROUBLES IN THE TWO LAST YEARS, 1675 AND 1676. TO WHICH IS ADDED A DISCOURSE ABOUT THE WARRE WITH THE PEQUODS IN THE YEAR 1637

      Boston, 1677. Small quarto. Sumptuously bound in 19th-century blue morocco by Pawson and Nicholson, with elaborately gilt boards and spine, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Bookplates on front pastedown, early ownership signature and notes (see below). Small chips at edges of titlepage. Trimmed close, occasionally touching a page number, running title, or catchword. Occasional staining. One leaf supplied from the London 1677 edition (see below). Map supplied in facsimile. Withal, still a very good copy. The very rare first edition, printed in Boston, of William Hubbard's crucially important history of the Indian wars of New England, a cornerstone Americanum. A London edition followed, published in the same year. Hubbard was born in England and came to the colonies in 1635, eventually becoming pastor of the church in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was closely involved in the government of the colony during King Philip's War, and this work, along with those of Increase and Cotton Mather, is the best and fullest account of the events of the struggle in Massachusetts. Hubbard and Increase Mather differed with each other on a number of points, and this book seems to have ignited the envy of the latter. "[Hubbard] was distinguished, in an age and country of bigots, for his liberality, moderation, and piety, and his narrative has always been regarded as authoritative by historians" - Church. This copy is without the incredibly rare map of New England by John Foster, the first map printed in English America, supplied here in facsimile. Of the fifty copies of the Boston printing of the book examined by Randolph G. Adams, more than half were missing the map. This is one of the first books printed in Boston, as all printing in the British colonies up to 1676 had been done in neighboring Cambridge. Most bibliographers refer to two "issues" of this 1677 Boston edition. This is the presumed "second issue" of Hubbard's work, with the twelve-line errata on the verso of the final text leaf (other copies are known with a ten-line errata) and with extra leaves in the M signature of the first part (see Church for these and other details). Adams, however, takes the "issue" question many steps further by pointing out that there are as many as twenty-five variant "issues" of the Boston printing of the text. The first two pages of the unnumbered eight-page section in the middle of the text, "A Table shewing the Towns and Places which are inhabited by the English in New- England," have been supplied in this copy from a copy of the 1677 London edition. Two leaves from that London edition have been joined together to make a new single leaf (resulting in a thicker sheet of paper), so the text begins on the recto of the leaf signed "*" (rather than "T" as in the Boston edition), continues onto the verso of the made-up leaf, and then properly continues onto the leaf signed "T2" of the Boston printing. This copy has a long and distinguished provenance, bearing the early ownership signature of antiquarian and editor John Farmer on the first page of the text, and several manuscript notes of a historical nature throughout. It also bears the bookplates of E. Stanley Hart and Roderick Terry (one of the most famous American book collectors of the early 20th century) on the front pastedown. Randolph Adams lists this copy in his study of Hubbard's work, and notes that it was also owned by printer Theodore Low DeVinne (a founder of The Grolier Club) and by William W. Cohen. Adams further notes that this copy was probably the one used by Samuel G. Drake in editing his 1865 edition of the book. A remarkably important work, one of the earliest such histories written and published in the colonies, here in the very rare Boston first edition.

Contemporary half vellum, marbled sides. A very rare collection of catalogues of plants growing in the area of Altdorf (near Nuremberg), and in the botanical garden of Altdorf. All, except one, by Moritz Hoffmann (1622-1698) a Swiss professor of medicine at the University of Altdorf. This famous university was closed down in 1808. One treatise is by J.J. Baier. The last treatise is by A. Vater and described the exotic plants in the Wittenberg Botanical Garden.The first work together with an appendix published in 1691 describes the plants growing in the medical garden of Altdorf. It is illustrated with a fine double-page engraving 'Hortus Medicus Altdorffinus' showing the town of Altdorf at the rear and the botanical garden at the front. The garden consists of 4 sections with parterres, and one orangery, visitors are walking in the lanes.The second work is an extensive catalogue of plants growing in the area of Altdorf. It gives location, the description of the plants and references to literature. The fine map 'Topographia Altdorfina et viciniae' shows towns, villages and rivers, to the east the town of Nuremberg and to the west Kassel.The third work describes the months of flowering of the plants in the medical garden at Altdorf as well as indigenous plants in the area around Altdorf.The fourth work describes plants growing in the area of the small village of Leimburg (near Altdorf).The fifth work is by Joh. Jacob Baier (1677-1735) who was professor of medicine at the Altdorf university and president of the 'Acad. natur. Curios.' and director of the famous 'hortus medicus'. The botanical garden of Altdorf had been previously described by Moritz Hoffmann and in the present work by Baier numerous references are made to this former work. The work presents a history of the garden and is accompanied by an engraved map which is not present in our copy.The sixth work by Abraham Vater (1684-1751) describes the exotic plants in the botanical garden of Wittenberg University. Vater was a professor of botany and anatomy and successor of J.H. Heucher who published the first catalogue in 1711 of the 'Hortus medicus'. A small supplement to the present work was published in 1724.Pritzel 4156; 4157; 4158; 4159; 338; 9694.

        A Treatise Concerning the Motion of the Seas and Winds... Translated for the use of the Publick, but particularly such as go to Sea

      London: printed by H.C. for Henry Brome, 1677. Small intrinsic paper flaw to fore-edge of the title-page; very good in contemporary sprinkled calf (joints rubbed, some wear to extremities).. Small octavo, [xvi], 192 pp. (including final advertisement leaf), two folding woodcut plates, full contemporary calf binding. First English edition: an important theoretical work on tides and ocean currents, here published as a small octavo for ready use by mariners and pilots during the golden age of English mercantile seafaring. The author, Isaac Vossius, was for some time a companion of Réne Descartes in the court of Queen Christina of Sweden, and enjoyed a reputation as a master scholar of both science and the humanities. Although this book is in many respects a theoretical treatise on natural phenomena, it contains good (and sometimes speculative) geographical discussion of the East Indies, Americas and the antipodes.Vossius first published this work in Latin in 1633 (titled De motu marium et ventorum liber) and this English translation was by Archibald Lovel. The English edition is designed for use as a seaman's handbook, and is particularly interesting for the hypotheses on sailing the remote oceans: given the date, there is a good deal on Magellan and the Americas, but it is also possible to glimpse the burgeoning interest in the Pacific and the Great South Land in the era before Dampier. He does make reference, for example, to the 'Countreys of the Southern Hemisphere' and to 'the Antipodes', in delineating his argument about ocean currents. At another point he makes reference to European colonies in the New World 'in Florida, Virginia, New-Holland and New France' - an uncommon use of the term "New Holland" to refer to Dutch settlements in North America.Vossius rejected lunar and astronomical causation of tides, proposing that the heat of the sun was the actual cause. Likewise, he maintained that winds and ocean currents were caused by solar radiation, and that the regular currents of the sea could be explained by the displacement of water by continental landmasses. Although the solar explanation of tidal movement was soon demonstrated as unfeasible, some of Vossius' theories concerning the role of the sun in creating winds and currents proved more enduring. Interestingly, this book suggests the value of the mercury barometer in predicting storms at sea.Isaac Vossius (1618-1689) was a polymath, renowned for his knowledge of classical literature: his interests were extensive and combined natural and physical sciences with philosophical speculation and theology. His reputation for learning spread far; in 1648 he was invited to the court of Queen Christina of Sweden. The following year he accepted a position as her tutor in ancient Greek. By this time the Swedish court was a beacon to intellectuals across Europe, and Vossius was joined by Réne Descartes in October 1849. Ironically, the queen proved an apt scholar of Greek yet seemed disinterested in Descartes.After a long and turbulent career in Sweden and Holland, Vossius finally settled in England in 1670. His private library was considered by some contemporaries as the finest in existence, and after his decease in 1689 it was noted that many of the volumes were listed on the Index librorum prohibitorum. In addition to a wide range of humanist works, Vossius published two other notable scientific tracts aside from this book on the sea. The first rejected Descartes' theory of optics, while the second was a novel speculation on the flooding of the Nile River.

        An Act for the Naturalisation of Peter Reneu and Others. A contemporary manuscript copy made by a parliamentary clerk.

      [c.1677] Large vellum document; some dusting but in good condition, folded. This Act undated, but the House of Lords Journal records that is was read before Parliament and agreed to on 12th April 1677. (The Addition of Names added by the House of Commons to the Bill for Naturalization of Peter Renue and others, was read Twice, and Agreed to.) 65 x 29cm.The Hollow Blade Sword Company was founded by Sir Stephen Evance, a goldsmith. In 1691 war between France and England interrupted the importation of hollow ground rapiers from France which had become popular weapons in England and a business opportunity presented to manufacture the swords in England. Evance arranged for Huguenot metalworkers to move to Britain to manufacture the swords and obtained a charter of corporation as the 'Governor and Company for Making Hollow Sword Blades in England', granted 13 October 1691. The company obtained premises at Shotley Bridge in Durham. Granting of the charter plus two patents was on condition the applicants loaned the government £50,000, which sum was provided by Evance and Sir Francis Child in August 1692. Evance was appointed the first governor of the company, Peter Reneu the deputy governor, assistants Francis Tissen, Matthew Evans, John Carter, John Holland, Abraham Dashwood, John Samford, Robert Peter, Thomas Evans, Peter Justice, John Reneu, William Reneu, John Baker. The corporation had power to purchase land and issue stock to unlimited value. The company manufactured swords and by virtue of the charter had power to seize imported foreign hollow swords. Evance became an excise commissioner and succeeded Childs as jeweller to King William III. However, after the king's death in 1702, the business failed and Evance committed suicide. It was purchased by a syndicate of businessmen who used the corporate identity of the company to operate as a bank. At this time the Bank of England held a monopoly by act of parliament as the only organisation permitted to operate as a bank, so anyone wishing to carry out banking operations had to do so by devious means. The company was used as a stepping stone to the foundation of the South Sea Company which set out to supplant the Bank of England as banker to the government. The new deputy-governor Jacob Sawbridge and his directors were described by Daniel Defoe 'as a complete triumvirate of thieving'.

Vansleb, German philologist and theologian, began serving Colbert for a proposed trip to Ethiopia, but it never went further than Egypt, where he spent 20 months to observe and collect information, multiplying excursions and trips . Vansleb never returns to the descriptions that have already been made by others (the pyramids), aware of its readers deliver entirely new information. If this is not the first relationship on Egypt, this is the first of a man long resident in the country; anyway it is one of the first, but the first in this way. The author had already made a first time in Egypt, he had pulled a narration in Italian, but it did not have that knowledge of Arabic which allows him contact with the population, and it was not remained in the country. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Manques aux mors en coiffe de tête ; et de queue pour le mors supérieur. Un coin émoussé. Importante relation pour la connaisance occidentale de l'Egypte. Vansleb, philologue et théologien allemand, se mit au service de Colbert pour un voyage projeté en Ethiopie, mais il n'alla jamais plus loin que l'Egypte, où il passa 20 mois à observer et collecter des informations, multipliant les excursions et voyages. Vansleb ne revient jamais sur les descriptions qui ont déjà été faites par d'autres (les pyramides), conscient de livrer à ses lecteurs des informations entièrement neuves. Si ce n'est pas la première relation sur l'Egypte, c'est la première d'un homme résidant longtemps dans le pays ; c'est de toutes façons une des premières, mais la toute première de cette façon. L'auteur s'était déjà rendu une première fois en Egypte, il en avait tiré une narration en Italien, mais il ne possédait pas cette connaissance de l'arabe qui lui permet le contact avec la population, et il n'était pas demeuré dans le pays.

        Cosmography in four books. Containing the Chorography and History of the whole World: and all the Principal Kingdoms, Provinces, Seas, and Isles thereof... [engraved title:] The 5th Edition, Corrected & Inlarged by the Author

      London: Printed by A.C. for P. Chetwind, and A. Seile.., 1677. Folio, printed title in red and black, with an additional engraved title and four folding maps (maps cut close at some edges due to their large size compared with the text block); contemporary dark sprinkled calf. "A new and strange Adventure, which no Knight Errant ever undertook before" Fifth edition, complete with the important appendix. Heylyn, the seventeenth-century theologian and historian, is said to have written his Cosmography after a stranger had advised him that 'Geography is better than divinity'. First published in 1652 under this title (see catalogue number 30 for the earlier work, Microcosmos, that led to it), it is a huge, wide-ranging description of the known world illustrated with four good engraved maps (Europe, Africa, Asia and North America, the last showing California as an island).The appendix, running to six pages, has its own title-page ("An Appendix to the Former Work, Endeavouring a Discovery of the unknown Parts of the World: especially of Terra Australis Incognita, or the Southern Continent"). This supplementary chapter, which discusses real and imaginary Australian voyages, did not appear in the earliest editions, and is not present in all copies of the later editions (it is for example not present in the copy described by Mendelssohn) and is a bizarre and surprisingly unnoticed text on the southern continent. Heylyn begins: 'And here we are upon a new and strange Adventure, which no Knight Errant ever undertook before...'.He continues by discussing "Terra Australis Incognita", which is probably (on the counterpoise theory) as large as Europe, Asia, and Africa, and its potential: 'The country being so large, so free from the Incumbrances of Frost and Ice, and endless Winters; I have oft marvelled with my self that no further hath been made in Discovery of it...'.He then discusses the voyages of Magellan, Le Maire, Hawkins, and Quiros, among others, with special sections devoted to Tierra del Fuego, the Solomon Islands and New Guinea. In a final, tongue-in-cheek, section he concludes that all that is needed by the student of the southern continent is more information; so, rather than 'troubling the Vice-Royes of Peru, and Mexico, or taking out a Commission for a new Discovery' he examines instead the various utopias that have been written with the southern continent as a setting. He starts with Hall's Mundus Alter and deals with More, Bacon, and others.An interesting, rare, and early discussion of the southern continent theory, bringing together actual discoveries and utopian fiction, and aptly demonstrating the muddled thinking surrounding the whole question during the seventeenth century.

        Movement of Venus & Mercury. "Phænomena Motuum Irregularuim Venus et Mercurius

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Nuremburg Homann Johann Baptiste c1760. Copper engraved map showing the irregular movement of Venus And Mercury, from Doppelmayer's " Atlas Coelestis" original wash colour; verso blank. Astronomical chart showing the course of the planets Venus and Mercury around the sun.; detailed text and astronomical diagrams. The planets are illustrated in a vignette as allagorical figures in chariots; Venus accompaanied by the moon in a chariot drawn by three pairs of horses; Mercury's chariot driven by a putti is drawn by two birds; Zeus sits astride the sun. Dark impression; bright colour. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677 - 1750) Doppelmayr was born in Nuremberg to a merchant family. He attended the Aegidien-Gymnasium and the University of Altdorf where he studied mathematics, physics, and law. His graduating dissertation, a study of the Sun, suggests an early interest in Astronomy. Following his studies in Altdorf, Doppelmayr traveled extensively in Europe and is known to have spent time at the University of Halle, as well as in Utrecht, Leiden, Oxford, and London. He returned to Nuremburg in 1704 to take up a mathematics professorship at his alma mater, the Aegidien-Gymnasium. It may have been here that he developed a relationship with the prominent Nuremburg map publisher J. B. Homann, with whom he prepared a number of important astronomical maps and atlases. The collaboration of over 20 years eventually led to the publication of the "Atlas Coelestis" in 1742. This astounding work was the most elaborate and detailed astronomical atlas yet published and is today much admired for its rich beautifully engraved plates Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.
