      "printed by W. Rawlins, for G. Sawbridge [et al.]" London: "printed by W. Rawlins, for G. Sawbridge [et al.]". 1677-76. "First and only edition, folio, pp. [10], plus unpaginated lexicon in quadruple column, with separate titles to each of the three parts; contemporary full paneled calf neatly rebacked, old red morocco label preserved; a very good, sound copy. & & Francis Holyoke, the reviser of Rider's dictionary and the compiler of the Dictionarium etymologicum, died in 1653, and his lexicographical work was continued, after a lapse of some years, by his son, Thomas. Drawn heavily from Gouldman's Copious Dictionary of 1674, but unlike the earlier Holyoke dictionaries, Thomas Holyoke adds, for most words, phrases illustrating meaning and usage, many of which derive from Spelman's Glossarium. Because of the competition in the succeeding years from Littleton and Coles, a second edition was not called for. With the essential matter of his predecessors, and printed in folio, in larger and more legible type, this dictionary is, for consultation, preferable to the predecessors (See Starnes, Chapt. XIX).

        Opera Philosophica. Editio Ultima. Nunc demum hac Editione diligenter recognita, & mendis expurgata.

      Apud Danielem Elsevirium, 1677 - Amstelodami (Amsterdam), Apud Danielem Elsevirium, 1677. In 4 de [LXXII]-222-[36]248-[24]-92-[4 (index)]pp., reliure en plein veau brun postérieur du milieu du XVIIIème siècle, dos muet restauré à 4 petits nerfs surlignés et soulignés de filets estampés, triple filet d'encadrement concentrique estampé avec à chaque angle interne un fer estampé et à chaque angle externe un fleuron estampé, deux coins supérieurs frottés et émoussés, roulette dorée sur les tranches latérales légèrement estompée, de nombreuses lettrines historiées, culs-de-lampe, frontispice orné d'une gravure représentant un portrait du philosophe, chaque page de titre orné d'une gravure de la marque de l'éditeur, de nombreuses planches gravées in texte et hors texte, rarissimes annotations manuscrites à l'encre noire de l'époque dans les marges, quelques rares rousseurs mais intérieur frais, tranche supérieure marron, tranches latérale et inférieure rouge, bon et bel exemplaire. Le titre général n'est pas daté et se trouve sur la fausse page de garde. L'ouvrage contient: ''Principia Philosophiae'', ''Specimina Philosophiae: seu Dissertatio de methodo Recte regendae rationis, & veritatis in fcientis inveftigandae: Dioptrice, et Meteora Ex Gallico translata, & ab auctore perfecta, variifque in locis emendata'', ''Passiones Animae''. René Descartes naquit en 1596 à La Haye en Touraine et décéda en 1650 à Stockholm. Il fut un philosophe, mathématicien et physicien mais également militaire. Il est considéré comme l'un des fondateurs de la philosophie moderne et certainement un des philosophes les plus importants de l'époque moderne: il formula le cogito, fondant ainsi le système des sciences sur le sujet connaissant face au monde qu'il se représente. En physique il apporta une contribution à l'optique et fut l'un des fondateurs du mécanisme. Il fut également à l'origine de la géométrie analytique en mathématiques. Il tenta de remplacer le syllogisme aristotélicien et se rallia au système cosmologique copernicien. Ses théories s'opposèrent à celles de Hobbes, Leibniz, Pascal, Spinoza mais également à la philospphie issue des lumières: Voltaire, Diderot ou encore Rousseau. Après des études en droit civil et canonique à l'université de Poitiers, il pratiqua durant trois années des études solitaires et s'engagea en Hollande à l'école de guerre de Maurice de Nassau, prince d'Orange. Puis il voyagea au Danemark et en Allemagne où il s'engagea dans l'armée du duc Maxililien de Bavière. Il retourna en France puis visita l'italie en 1623-1624, puis fut de retour en France entre 1627 et 1629, où sur les conseils de Mersenne il étudia la philosophie. De 1629 à 1633 il vécut à nouveau aux Pays-Bas, notamment à Amsterdam, ville dans laquelle il pratiqua de très nombreuses expériences biologiques, il vécut également à Deventer, Utrecht, Santpoort de 1633 à 1637. Descartes réforma le système de notation des mathématiques en utilisant des lettres de l'alphabet latin. En 1649 il accepta de devenir le tuteur de la Reine Christine de Suède. Parmi ses nombreux ouvrages, nous pouvons citer: ''Compendium musicae'' (1631), ''Traité du monde et de la lumière'' (1632-1633) (c'est après la publication de ce livre et la lecture du ''Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo'' de Galilée qu'il renonça aux sciences pour se tourner définitivement vers la philosophie) ''Le discours de la méthode'' (1637), ''Méditations métaphysique'' (1641), ''Les principes de la philosophie'' (1644), ''Les passions de l'âme'' (1649). La philosophie de Descartes, subissant l'influence générale du doute sceptique de Michel de Montaigne et plus particulièrement celle de Pierre Charon est la recherche de l'élaboration d'une méthode universelle aspirant à étendre la certitude à l'ensemble du savoir, voulant ainsi fonder une ''Mathesis universalis''. Ce travail se fonde sur, outre l'intelligence, l'imagination, les sens et la mémoire. Pour Descartes la scolastique inspirée de l'antiquité et de la tradition judéo-ch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pleasing period dark brown armorial calf recently rebacked to style with tan calf, covers with gilt frame featuring intricate floral cornerpieces, upper cover with central medallion containing a family crest, surrounded by the inscription "Richard Samuel White Esqr. / Perseverando"; raised bands, black morocco label. With woodcut headpiece. A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedown stamped with a blank shield over a laurel garland, front free endpaper with signature of Charles Marsden (son of the dedicatee Henry Marsden) mounted on recto, and WITH THE AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION POEM mounted on verso (see below); front flyleaf with ownership inscription of Rich[ard] Sam[uel] White, with his notation that the book was purchased at auction in December of 1798 for 5 shillings. Wing W-1230; Lowndes IV, 2864. Corners quite worn, covers somewhat dried, marked, and crackled, but the binding solidly restored now and entirely functional. Endpapers a bit soiled and wrinkled, occasional minor smudges, stains, insignificant tears, and other trivial defects, but an excellent copy internally, consistently fresh, mostly bright and clean, with gigantic margins, and with thick leaves that crackle when you turn them. This work--a denunciation of those who attribute the symptoms of bewitchment to demons or other supernatural causes--is valuable and fascinating to begin with, and the present volume could hardly be more special, having been owned by one of the five dedicatees, Henry Marsden (ca. 1625-88), of Gisburn, Yorkshire, and with a signed 49-word presentation poem to him in the author's own hand. The extended title tells us that in this work Webster "utterly denie[s] and disprove[s] . . . that there is a corporeal league made betwixt the devil and the witch, or that he sucks on the witches body, has carnal copulation, or that witches are turned into cats [or] dogs, [or that they] raise tempests or the like." Other topics under discussion in this volume include "the existence of angels and spirits, the truth of apparitions, the nature of astral and sidereal spirits, the force of charms and philters, [and] other abstruse matter." Although he attacks Casaubon, Glanvill, and Henry More for the credulity displayed in their works on witchcraft, Webster (1610-82) shows himself in this work to be a wonderful mixture of the enlightened and the gullible. His chief argument here is that the works and signs so often attributed to bewitchment actually stem from natural, not diabolical or demonic, causes. But when he undertakes to explain himself by averring that witch-like actions could well be caused by the presence of frogs in the stomach (they get there when one eats an apple with frog eggs in it), his hypotheses seem nearly as unlikely as those put forward by the "demonographers and witchmongers" he denounces. However far Webster falls short of thoroughgoing enlightenment, his attack on those who believe in witchcraft has genuine power and, in general, a sound intellectual foundation. This copy is especially significant in that it obviously was meant for presentation, being one of the very few recorded on Large Paper and containing a presentation poem in Webster's own hand (apparently rescued from the detached original endpaper and mounted on the new one) that he has signed. It reads: "Right worthy friend this piece to you I send / Peruse it well & read it to the end / And though nor law, nor gold therein you find / Treasure and greater that inrich the mind / And though small pleasure therein you may take / Accept it kindly for the Authors sake. / J. W." Beneath it, written in the hand of Charles Marsden, is an acceptance couplet: "Experience from this Learned piece I take / And love to read it, for ye Authors sake.".

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)

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.

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.
