Woodcut vignette to title-page. Engraved portrait of Spinoza (after leaf 20). (40), 614, (34), 112, (8) pp. A few brownspots at end, a few topmargins with light browning, otherwise fine and clean. Pevious owned by two famous Danish men of letters: Christian Molbech and Georg Brandes. - Molbech's name on verso of front free endpaper, Brandes name on recto of front free endpaper and on the titlepage.. 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)

        De Regio Patronatu; Ac Aliis Nonnullis Regaliis, Regibus Catholicis

      1677. Frasso, Pedro. De Regio Patronatu: Ac Aliis Nonnullis Regaliis, Regibus Catholicis, in Indiarum Occidentalium Imperio, Pertinentibus: Quaestiones Aliquae Desumptae, Et Disputatae, In Quinquaginta Capita Partitae. Madrid: Ex Typographia Imperiali, Apud Iosephum Fernandez a Buendia, 1677-1679. Two volumes. Main text in parallel columns. Additional copperplate title pages. Two portrait plates. Folio (13" x 8-3/4"). Eighteenth-century three-quarter sheep over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering pieces to spines, marbled endpapers, ribbon markers, edges rouged. Some rubbing to extremities, chipping to edges of lettering pieces, corners bumped and somewhat worn, front hinges cracked, minor worming to final six leaves of 1677 volume. Title pages printed in red and black, woodcut decorated initials, head-pieces and tail-pieces. Toning to text, occasional light browning, internally clean. * First edition. Frasso, a Peruvian jurist of the Regalist school, presents an important legal analysis that supports the crown's power over the church in Spain's American colonies. The full title of the 1677 volume is De Regio Patronatu ac Aliis Nonnulis Regalis, Regibus Catholicis, in Indiarum Occidentalium Imperio; the second is De Regio Patronatu Indiarum Questiones Aliquae Desumptae et Disputatae. Both volumes contain a portrait of Frasso. The two portraits were apparently printed from the same plate, but for some reason Frasso's face was re-engraved for the second volume and looks substantially different. A second edition was published in 1775. Both editions are rare in the trade. The last known copy to enter the market was a first edition that appeared at auction in 1923. OCLC locates 8 copies of the first edition, 2 in North American law libraries (Yale, UC-Berkeley). Palau, Manual del Librero Hispano-Americano 94684.

        De Sacrificiis libri duo; quorum altero explicantur omina Judaeorum, nonnulla gentium profanarum sacrificial: altero sacrificium Christi. Utroque ecclesiae Catholicae his de rebus sentential contra Faustum Socinum

      London: T. Roycroft impensis Richardi Chiswell, 1677. First Edition. Hardcover. 4to. pp. [16], 372, [20] Title printed in red and black. Text is in Latin with quoted passages in Hebrew. Re-backed preserving original sprinkled calf boards. Upper corner of rear cover restored. End papers are renewed with quality laid paper after period style. Interior is clean. An inscription written in an old hand on a front blank leaf reads: "Ex domo Authoris Maii 4. 1677" (From the house of the author, May 4. 1677). William Owtram (1625-1679) was an English conformist theologian known for his great skill in rabbinical learning. In 1669 Owtram became Archdeacon of Leicester and in 1670 he was made Prebendary of Westminster (1670). Richard Baxter spoke of him as " one of the best and ablest of the conformists." [DNB]. Owtram is mainly known for his learned work "De Sacrificiis libri duo" an in depth study of religious ritual sacrifice. The book is divided into two parts; part 1 treats of ritual sacrifice in general and of the Biblical Hebrew rituals in particular. The sacrificial practices of the Gentiles are also mentioned. Part 2 discusses the Christian concept of sacrifice in reference to the death of Christ on the cross. The entire work was written in large part to counter the Socinian (early Unitarian) concept that Christ's death was not atonement for humanity's sins. Owtram defends the doctrine of atonement through vicarious punishment in both Hebrew and Christian scriptures. He argues that Christ's death was an expiatory sacrifice which took away the sins of mankind. The book was also influential in Dutch Socinian debates. Two later editions were printed in Amsterdam … Of interest for Restoration Anglican history and for the history of Socinianism and Unitarianism. [ESTC R7355; McAlpin III, p. 754; Lowndes p. 1742].

        TITUS AND BERENICE, A TRAGEDY, ACTED AT THE DUKE'S THEATRE WITH A FARCE CALLED THE CHEATS OF SCAPIN

      London: Printed for Richard Tonson, 1677.. [8],1,[7],17-32,43-50,33-62,[2]pp. Quarto. Unsigned early 20th century three quarter calf, gilt labels, a.e.g. Foretips and spine extremities a bit rubbed, some faint old damp spotting and discoloration in the fore- margin, modest tanning and occasional smudges; a good copy. First edition. In this copy, C1 is in the canceled state, with the reading "Paul, I ne're expected...." The first work is an adaptation of Racine's BÉRÉNICE, and the latter of Molière's LES FOURBERIES DE SCAPIN. A relatively early publication in Otway's brief career: "Both tragedy and farce were acted on the same night in February 1676-7, and were published shortly afterwards in a single volume, which was dedicated to Lord Rochester. A reprint appeared in 1701. Mrs. Barry played in both pieces; Betterton only in the tragedy, where he took the role of Titus. The farce kept the stage till the present century. The approval bestowed on his version of ‘Scapin’ encouraged Otway to try his fortune in comedy..." - DNB NCBEL II:748. ESTC R9537. WING O566.

        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 Iconibu

      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'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.

        Cosmography in Four Books. Containing the Chorography and History of the Whole World and all the Principal Kingdoms, Provinces, Seas and Isles Thereof

      London - P. Chetwind and A. Seile, 1677 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An importantseventeenth century scientific work mapping and describing in meticulous detail the history andfeatures ofevery part of the knownworld. Includes a dedicatorypoem written by the author's brother. With decorative head and tail pieces and capitals. Four books bound into one. Incorrect pagination in the second part, but bound in the correct order, as usual with this edition. Correct pagination has been discreetly written in ink for this section. Text is complete. Cosmography is the science that maps the general features of the universe, describing both heaven and Earth (but without encroaching on geography or astronomy). Peter Heylyn's 1652 book Cosmographie (enlarged from his Microcosmos of 1621) was one of the earliest attempts to describe the entire world in English, and being the first known description of Australia and among the first of California. The book has 4 sections, examining the geography, politics, and cultures of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, with an addendum on Terra Incognita, including Australia, and extending to Utopia, Fairyland, and the Land of Chivalrie. Peter Heylyn (15991662), Church of England clergyman and historian. He gained early renown for his geographical works. After graduating BA in October 1617 he began to lecture on historical geography in the college, and was elected a fellow of Magdalen in the following year. After proceeding MA in 1620 he published his lectures as Microcosmos: a Little Description of the Great World (1621) and secured its presentation to its dedicatee, Prince Charles, at Theobalds. This proved his most popular work, going through no fewer than eight editions by 1639. From his early years Heylyn was also active as a poet. At a later age he recollected his early poems with pleasure, and continued writing them into the early 1630s, when he dedicated poems to Charles I and William Laud. He had a particular taste for satire, enthusiastically translating epigrams by Martial as well as composing a Latin comedy, Theomachia, and a derisory poem against Barten Holyday entitled Whoop Holiday, and in 1625 he composed a lengthy satirical account of his trip to France, which went through several editions in the 1650s. Heylyn attended the notorious convocation of 1640, where he seems to have played an important role in proposing and drawing up a standard set of visitation articles to be adopted for the whole country and in proposing the canon calling for greater observance of the king's accession day, as well as providing the necessary precedent of 1586 to justify the continued sitting of convocation after the dissolution of parliament. In Oxfordshire in the 1650s Heylyn resumed his writing. He published the strongly clericalist The Undeceiving of the People in the Point of Tithes, his substantial commentary on the creed (Theologia veterum), and perhaps his most famous work, the Cosmographie. Published in 1652 this was an enormous and highly popular expansion of his earlier Microcosmos into a folio volume of nearly a thousand pages, and was sufficiently well regarded that the council of state saw fit to obtain a copy for their better instruction. The polarized view of the Church of England that Heylyn propounded has meant that he has been alternately praised and vilified by succeeding generations of scholars and churchmen. His works found their most enthusiastic audiences in the midst of the polarized religious politics of the 1670s and 1680s. His major works were regularly reprinted in the 1670s, and in 1681 a substantial collected volume of his previous works was published, followed by two biographies. DNBCondition: Rebound in half morocco. Externally excellent with just a little shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Remarkably bright and clean for the age of this book, with just the odd spot. Regrettably this copy is missing the four folding maps that shouldbe bound inat the start of each section. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
