Hooft (1581-1647) était un des auteurs hollandais les plus prolifiques de la première moitié du dix-septième siècle. Les volumes I et II contiennent son Nederlandsche Historien, qui couvre la période du transfert de Charles V du gouvernement des Pays-Bas à son fils Philips II de 1555 jusqu'à 1587, pendant le séjour du Comte de Leicester aux les Pays-Bas. Dans la préparation pour ce travail, Hooft ne s'est pas limité dans l' étude vaste des sources historiques, il a aussi prêté beaucoup d'attention pour se former. Il a aussi traduit le travail de son grand exemple, l'historien romain Tacitus, pour surmonter le style succint du dernier. Dans son hollandais, qu'il a purgé de ses "Anglisismes", Hooft a imité la même pureté de langue que Cicéron. Le Nederlandsche Historien est devenu un monument dans la littérature hollandaise, non seulement pour son exactitude et la description magistrale d'événements et des caractères(personnages), mais aussi comme la seule écriture historique hollandaise dans le style classique. La première partie de Nederlandsche Historien (réserve 1-20) a paru en 1642 chez Elzevier (Willems, Les Elzevier 986). La deuxième partie (réserve 21-27) ont été publié par le fils Aernout d'Hooft après la mort de son père en 1654 (Amsterdam, Blaeu). En 1656 Blaeu a publié une nouvelle édition des deux parties. Notre copie est la troisième édition de 1677.texte en Néerlandais - CONTIENT: 1 planche superbe sur l'Inquisition en espagne, une vue d'Utrecht - une vue de Woerde -une vue d'Alkmaar-une vue d' Haarlem-une vue de Leyden etc. - rare - édition superbe -en bon état malgré les défauts signalés.

      Richardi Chiswell, London 1677 - A FOUNDATION TEXT OF THE UNITARIAN CHURCH PRINTED 1677. EXCEEDINGLY RARE. Not in the American Auction Records for 30 years. INFLUENCED BY THE FAMED MICHAEL SERVERTUS WHO WAS BURNED ALIVE FOR THE BELIEFS ESPOUSED IN THIS VOLUME The Book: Owtram, William, 1626-1679. De sacrificiis libri duo microform : quorum altero explicantur omnia Judæorum, nonnulla gentium profanarum sacrificia : altero sacrificium Christi : utroque ecclesiæ Catholicæ his de rebus sententia contra Faustum Socinum, ejúsque sectatores defenditur / autore Guilielmo Outramo . Londini : Typis T. Roycroft, impensis Richardi Chiswell 1677. small 4to, Full old calf in nice condition, save for lacking spine, internally clean and complete. Highly important anti-Trinitarian text. Very Rare. No copies at auction in 30 years. Unitarians can trace their roots back to the 16th Century. The belief spread from Poland, to what was then Transylvania (Romania), through England and on to America where it especially thrived in New England. Michael Servetus seems to be considered the founder of the movement. Servetus a Roman Catholic Spanish physician escaped from the inquisition in France and went to Geneva. Here in 1553 he was burned alive after a three-month trial into his anti-Trinitarian beliefs. "Servetus discovered that in the uncorrupted Greek New Testament there was no text to justify the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. He published two books arguing that Christians should bring their views of God and Jesus into conformity with Jewish and Muslim monotheism. Hence the word "Unitarian" -- God as unity, or one" - Canadian Unitarian Council Website. These beliefs sometimes known as Sabellianism were to become known as Socianism after Italian born Faustus Socinus. He developed anti-Trinitarian belief into a more organised teaching. At this time he was living in Poland and his followers were sometimes called the Minor Reformed Church. Forced out of Poland again by persecution many merged with the Unitarians in Transylvania and from there the belief spread to England. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, leaders of the American Revolution, were all Unitarians. Interestingly, this book also contains one of the earliest appearances of the word Holocaust, lending to the interesting debate surrounding its etymology. It is present here in a religious sense of sacrificial offering. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Recently bound in quarter brown morocco over cloth boards with 4 raised bands and gilt titles on spine, imprimatur on verso of title page and dated 1676, contents clean and bright, 5 [of 6] copper engraved plates by John Oliver three of which are folding. Wing B5109. Edward Brown was the eldest son of Sir Thomas Browne, the author of 'Pseudodoxia Epidemica'. Like his father Edward trained as a physician and rounded off his education with a grand tour of Europe. Not wishing to take up his profession immediately he persauded his father to allow him to make another foreign journey, during which he visited the Low Countries, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Serbia. While abroad he sent letters home, which contained, among other things, information on the gold, silver, and copper mines in Hungary, Transylvania, and Austria. Three of these letters were published in 'Philosophical Transactions'. It was Brown's father who encouraged him to adapt these letters for publication as books; 'A brief account of some travels in Hungaria, Servia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Thessaly, Austria, Styria, Carinthia, Carniola, and Friuli' (1673) and; 'An Account of Several Travels Through a Great Part of Germany (1677). , 4to , [2] 179 [1] pp .

      Chez Estienne Michallet 1677 - - Chez Estienne Michallet, A Paris 1677, In 12 (8,5x15,5cm), (16) 423pp. (17), relié. - Edition originale, rare et précieuse. Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Ensemble épidermé. 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.

        Medicinal Councels, or Advices: Written Originally in French, by Dr. Theodor Turquet de Mayerne, Kt. Baron of Aubonne, Counsellor and Chief Physician to the Late King and Queen of England. Put Out in Latine at Geneva, by Theoph. Bonetus. Englished by Tho. Sherley, M.D., Physician in Ordinary to His Present Majesty.

      London, N. Ponder, 1677. - 8 leaves, 136 pp, 4 leaves [contents]. Recent full leather. Text browned. Very Good. First Edition in English. Wing M1428. Munk I: 163-68. "The only work that Sir Theodore Mayerne published, was the Apology . . . 'Apologia, in qua videre est, inviolatis Hippocratis et Galeni legibus, Remedia Chymice preparata, tuto usurpari posse Rupel. 1603.' He left his library, containing many MSS., to the College of Physicians. Some of these were published by Dr. Thomas Shirley, and others by Sir Theodore de Vaux, Mayerne's godson, and an honorary Fellow of the College" (Munk I: 168). "Mayerne's reputation as a physician, in his own time, was immense throughout Europe, but he was not, like his colleague Harvey, an original thinker. He and Harvey had indeed little in common, Harvey being as dismissive of chemistry as Mayerne was of the doctors of Padua. He was essentially an eclectic, who sought to incorporate Paracelsian and Hermetic ideas in a basically Galenic system. He was far more tolerant of the Galenist doctors of Paris than they of him, and sent his second son, James, to Paris to learn 'the solid foundations of medicine' from the men who had previously vituperated him. His proclaimed masters were, among the ancients, Hippocrates and Hermes Trismegistus; among the moderns, Fernel and du Chesne. His great contribution lay in his therapeutic practice, his careful and continuous observation of his patients, and his flexible response to their condition. This is recorded in his 'Ephemerides', a regular record, which shows him as an open-minded, rational, objective practitioner, not tied to any theoretical system. . . . After his death, and protracted litigation, Mayerne's books and papers passed to his niece, Aimée de Frotté, and her husband, his long-serving Genevan assistant, Jean (afterwards Sir John) Colladon; and then to their son, Mayerne's godson, Sir Theodore Colladon, physician of Chelsea Hospital. Since the Colladons had published nothing Sir Theodore de Vaux, using his own copies and supported by the Royal College of Physicians, published his Praxis Mayerniana in two volumes (1690&#150;96). This roused Sir Theodore Colladon to supply the originals to Joseph Browne, a bookseller's hack, who then published Mayernii opera medica (1700), a hasty and inaccurate compilation prefaced by attacks on Vaux and the Royal College" (Oxford DNB).

      [Amsterdam, Jan Rieuwertsz], 1677. 4to. Contemporary well-preserved full vellum. Handwritten title on spine. Woodcut vignette to title-page. (40), 614, (34), 112, (8) pp. A few contemporary underlinings and marginal notes. Printed on good paper, internally fine and clean. This is a copy without the portrait of Spinoza. A contemporary note in the hand of Bishop M. Petersen on the title-page says, that the book was a gift to the bishop from Count von Brockdorff.. The rare first edition of Spinoza's "Opera Posthuma", which contains the seminal first printing of his magnum opus, the "Ethics", his philosophical masterpiece, which constitutes the first systematic exposition of "Pantheism". "[t]he "Opera Posthuma", published in the same year [as his death, 1677], have served, then and since, with the "Tractatus Theologico-Politicus", to immortalize his name." (PMM 153). With "his one indisputable masterpiece" [i.e. the "Ethics"] (Bennett, a Study of Spinoza's Ethics, p. 7), one of the greatest contributions to Western philosophy, Spinoza is considered one of the most important philosophers of all times. Laying the foundation for 18th century Enlightenment, he is indisputably recognized as one of the greatest rationalists of the 17th century. With his "Ethics" he presents his groundbreaking opposition to Descartes' mind-body-dualism and thereby changes the entire trajectory of modern philosophy. As Hegel would say in his "History of Philosophy", "You are either a Spinozist or not a philosopher at all."The real name of Benedictus Spinoza (1632-77), one of the most important thinkers of early modern philosophy, was originally Baruch Espinoza. He Latinized his name in 1657 after having been expelled from the Jewish community; his philosophical and scientific studies had caused him to remove himself further and further from the Jewish comprehension of God, he rejected the idea that the Jewish people were God's chosen people, and he refused to live by the laws and rules of the Jewish religion. After his excommunication, Spinoza became a lens-cutter - a toughly required skill, which not only took good craftsmanship but also great mathematical knowledge. "In this, as in the theory of optics, he showed great ability. His lenses were in considerable demand, and his skill brought him in contact with Huygens and Leibniz [...] Thus Spinoza was able to support himself as the guest of a friend, a member of the Collegiants, an Armenian religious community, in the country outside Amsterdam out of reach of his late co-religionists, and to devote himself to concentrated thought and study. There he found himself the centre of a small philosophical club, which, originally meeting to study Cartesian philosophy, eventually parted company with Descartes; it was for them, in all probability, that Spinoza wrote his "Ethics". (PMM 153) In 1660 Spinoza moves from Amsterdam to Rijnsburg, where he begins working on his "Short Treatise on God, Man and Human Welfare", "an initial but aborted effort to lay out his metaphysical, epistemological and moral views. His critical exposition of Descartes's "Principles of Philosophy", the only work he published under his own name in his lifetime, was completed in 1663, after he had moved to Voorburg, outside The Hague. By this time, he was also working on what would eventually be called the "Ethics", his philosophical masterpiece. However, when he saw the principles of toleration in Holland being threatened by reactionary forces, he put it aside to complete his "scandalous" "Theological-Political Treatise", published anonymously and to great alarm in 1670." (SEP). In 1675 he contemplated publishing his "Ethics", but baseless rumours of his atheism decided him against it. When he died in 1677, in The Hague, his greatest work the "Ethics" had thus still not been published. His friends, however, saw to it that it was so immediately, and later the same year it appears for the first time, in his "Opera Posthuma", along with his other unpublished writings, namely his "De intellectus emendatione" - a kind of preliminary work to the "Ethics", his unfinished "Tractatus politicus", and a "Compendium to Hebrew Grammar" (separately paginated). The work, which is edited by one of Spinoza's closest friends, Jarig Jelles, furthermore includes a number of letters. "The exposition of Descartes temporarily distracted Spinoza from what was now his main occupation, a rigorous presentation of his own highly original philosophical thoughts. The "Short Treatise" clearly did not satisfy him, and by early 1662 he had aborted the incomplete manuscript in order to make yet another fresh start. Thus, most likely in the spring of 1662, Spinoza took up his pen to begin what would be his philosophical masterpiece, the "Ethics" ("Ethica"). Still, in essence, a treatise on "God, man and His Well-Being," the "Ethics" was an attempt to provide a fuller, clearer, and more systematic layout in "the geometric style" for his grand metaphysical and moral project. He worked on it steadily for a number of years, through his move to Voorburg in 1663 and on into the summer of 1665. He envisioned at this point a three-part work, and seems to have had a fairly substantial draft in hand by June 1665. He felt confident enough of what he had written so far to allow a select few to read it, and there were Latin and even Dutch (translated by Pieter Balling) copies of the manuscript circulating among his friends. We do not know how close to a final product Spinoza considered this draft of the "Ethics" when he put it aside, probably in the fall of 1665. [...] At the time he probably saw it as mostly complete but in need of polishing. It would be a good number of years, though, before Spinoza returned to his metaphysical-moral treatise to put the finishing touches on it, which included significant additions and revisions, no doubt in the light of further reading and reflection. " (Nadler, Spinoza's Ethics. An Introduction, p. 15)."Baruch (or Benedictus) Spinoza is one of the most important philosophers-and certainly the most radical-of the early modern period. His thought combines a commitment to Cartesian metaphysical and epistemological principles with elements from ancient Stoicism and medieval Jewish rationalism into a nonetheless highly original system. His extremely naturalistic views on God, the world, the human being and knowledge serve to ground a moral philosophy centered on the control of the passions leading to virtue and happiness. They also lay the foundations for a strongly democratic political thought and a deep critique of the pretensions of Scripture and sectarian religion. Of all the philosophers of the seventeenth-century, perhaps none have more relevance today than Spinoza." (SEP)Van der Linde 22 (as evident from the collation, apparently not having the separate half-titles for "Ethica" and "Compendium Grammatices Linguæ Hebrææ", which are present in our copy)

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.

        Archiatri Danici, Anatome Quartum Renovata : Non Tantum Ex Institutionibus b. m. Parentis, Caspari Bartholini, Sed etiam ex omnium cum Veterum, tum Recentiorum Observationibus : Ad Circulationem Harveianam & Vasa Lymphatica directis. Cum Iconibus

      1677. Hard Cover. Good. [30], [1]-806, [18] pages. Early leather binding, hinges/joints quite cracked but cords are still holding. Lugduni, Sumpt Joan. Ant. Huguetan, & Soc. MDCLXXVII [ 1677 ]. "Bartholin, a Danish physician, naturalist, physiologist, and anatomist, was one of several seventeenth century researchers who greatly expanded the knowledge of the working anatomy of various glands and their ducts, the biliary system, and the lymphatic system. Bartholin is commonly credited with the first description of the thoracic duct in man and Jean Pecquet with recognizing it in animals a few years later." (Heirs of Hippocrates, 324) Published just 3 years before his death, this book is an anatomical textbook. Bartholin had updated his father Caspar Bartholin&#39;s anatomical work Institutione Anatomicae (1611) through at least three editions (first in 1641 recognizing the work of Aselli and Harvey, second in 1645 with the help of anatomist Johann Vesling, and third in 1651, with much updated text and new illustrations from Casserius and Vesling replacing earlier Vesalian figures). He is credited in 1654 with the discovery of the human lymphatic system. This edition was published in 1677, and includes 14 plates (12 folding), 97 labeled plates or "tabula" in the text plus 5 additional illustrations not labeled as "tabula". There are 3 instances where the sequential numbering of tabula might normally indicate a missing illustration (XXXII before page 212, XLIX before page 296, and VIII before page 754). In each case, we believe the book complete, and each a case of simple mis-labelling and the inconsistent treatment of folding plate numbering. Plate XLIII has some material lacking (part of the paper manufacturing process) with no loss of context or meaning. There is some minor marginal worming in the front matter, and on pages 473-484, 504-518, and 531-539. One tabula (XI) is mislabeled IX. This copy lacks the engraved portrait of the author found in some copies opposite the first page of text. Extra engraved pictorial title present. Minor occasional soiling. Pencilled notations on the endpapers. Generally a good copy. Full title: Archiatri Danici, Anatome Quartum Renovata : Non Tantum Ex Institutionibus b. m. Parentis, Caspari Bartholini, Sed etiam ex omnium cum Veterum, tum Recentiorum Observationibus : Ad Circulationem Harveianam & Vasa Lymphatica directis. Cum Iconibus Novis Et Indicibus. Hard Cover.

        Carte des Indes Orientales

      Paris: Chez l&#39;Auteur, prés le Palais, sur le Quay de l&#39;Orloge, 1677. Hand-coloured map, 410 x 550 mm., old central fold; a good clear impression with excellent original colour. Framed. One of the first French maps of Tasman. An attractive map by an important French cartographer with good early notice of Tasman, many of the place names derived from his 1642 and 1644 voyages, particularly thorough on the south coast of Tasmania, the west coast of Cape York, and the coast of Arnhem Land. Pierre du Val (1619-1683) was the son-in-law of Nicolas Sanson, and followed in the footsteps of his illustrious father-in-law by holding the position of Geographe ordinaire du Roi. This is &#39;one of the earliest French maps to depict Australia as defined by Tasman&#39;s two voyages, shows the East Indian archipelagos of Indonesia and the Phillippines and the entire area between the Cape of Good Hope and Japan and Australia, with Tasmania forming the southern limit in the east. The map also shows the earlier discoveries in Australia of Hartog, Cartensz and Nuyts&hellip;&#39; (Perry, Cartography of the East Indian Islands, p. 155). The map prominently notes the familiar "Terre d&#39;Endracht", "Terre d&#39;Edels", Terre de Leeuwin", "Terre de Nuits" and "Terre de Wits". First published in 1665, this is the second edition, from Cartes de Geographie les Plus Nouvelles.
