Marchionatus sacri romani imperii sive agri antverpiensis vicinarumq, regionum tabula anno MDCLXXVII.' (Holy Roman, Imperial Margraviate of Antwerp and region anno 1677.) With coat of arms of Antwerp, Bergen op Zoom, Liere, Herenthals, Steenbergen and Bre Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Description: This plate originates from: 'Notitia Marchionatus Sacri Romani Imperii, Hoc est Urbis et Agri Antverpiensis, Oppidorum, Dominiorum, Monasteriorum, Castellorumque sub eo. (.).' , by J. Le Roy, published by F. Lamminga, Amsterdam 1678. This is a chorographical description of the Margraviate of Antwerp, divided in 10 counties: Antwerp, Ryen, Zandhoven, Herentals, Geel, Hoogstraten, Turnhout and Breda. The plates were later used in other works by this author as well.

The engravers in this work include: Henricus Causé (1648-1699), Franz Ertinger (1640-1710), J.Harrewijn, Robert Whitehand, Bouttats, N.Stramot, G. De Bruyn. The imagery is highly reliable. His works were translated in several languages.Artists and Engravers: Author: Jacques Le Roy, also referred to as Jacob or Jacobus, was a Flemish baron, historian and theologian who lived from 1633-1719.

Doppio frontespizio, il primo dei quali calcografico, inciso da Francesco Diodati per la prima edizione dell'opera, pubblicata nel 1666, raffigurante il re Salomone e l'imperatore Diocleziano che sorreggono un drappo recante il titolo del volume. Bella marca tipografica al secondo frontespizio. Con oltre tremila illustrazioni xilografiche in bianco e nero nel testo, raffiguranti specie vegetali, disposte su due colonne per pagina: ciascuna incisione è accompagnata da una breve descrizione, in latino, che, nonostante la sinteticità, consente all'autore di fare raffronti, parallelismi e riferimenti bibliografici.

Scarce first edition of Hermann Witsius'* magnum opus "De Oeconomia Foederum Dei Cum Hominibus" (The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man), a reflection of some of the most constructive and thorough thinking on covenant theology** during the 17th century. Divided into four books, "this work presents the reader with a fully biblical and experiential doctrine of the divine covenants; opening up their nature, stipulations, curses, and blessings" (Ligonier). Witsius was motivated to publish this work by his sorrow at the controversies between Voetians (adepts of Dutch Calvinist theologian Gisbertus Voetius) and Cocceians (adepts of Dutch theologian Johannes Cocceius). Includes an extensive Index and an Errata sheet at rear. Binding slightly and partly age-toned. Modern endpapers and fly leaves.

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.

Later calf, rebacked, spine stamped in gilt, “Milton’s History of Britain.” (lacking initial blank, only occasional spots otherwise good). Bound in before title is handwritten “Contents of ye Books” detailing the six books of the History in a near contemporary hand on linen paper (folded at right margin), the annotator has made good summaries for each. Armorial Ex Libris of Ralph Sylvester Bartlett (1868-1960), descended from a colonial family, laid in front with bookseller notations on reverse. Milton’s ‘History of Britain;’ containing republican thoughts at the crisis of the English Revolution. This is the first issue of the second edition, despite the fact that there is no edition statement on the title page. The second issue of the second edition (issued in 1678 by John Macock for Mark Pardoe) includes the words “The second edition” on the title page (Wing M2122). Milton’s History of Britain is an unfinished and censored prose work first published in 1670. Milton began work on the History around 1649, completing four books in the first phase, then continued in the 1650s with a further two books. The History was first printed at the Rose and Crown in St. Paul’s Church-yard. In this work, Milton, who had allegiances with the revolutionary cause during the English Civil War, mixed actual history based on a wide range of sources with comments on the restored monarchy of his time. He admitted the inaccuracy of many of his sources, but justified hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary vellum, blind-stamped ornament in center of both sides, upper joint and endpapers expertly repaired, spine somewhat darkened. PMM 153; Van der Linde 22; Kingma-Offenberg 24; Wolf Collection, 378; Knuttel 377. First edition of Spinoza's posthumous works, including the first edition of the world-famous Ethica, which "have served, then and since, with the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, to immortalize his name" (PMM 153). These posthumous works were published by Jan Rieuwertsz, an Amsterdam bookseller and friend of Spinoza, and edited by him together with the merchant Jarig Jelles, who probably wrote the preface. It contains the first publication of the Ethics. The remainder comprises the Tractatus Politicus- his last, unfinished production, which develops a theory of law and government akin to that of Hobbes; the Tractatus de Intellectus Emendatione, also unfinished; a selection of letters- restricted, owing to the dangers of publishing correspondence on questions of politics and theology; and, after an index, a Compendium Grammatices Linguae Hebraeae, paginated separately.Only one day before his death Spinoza arranged that his posthumous works should be sent to Jan Rieuwertsz in Amsterdam, who also published his Principia of Descartes and the Tractatus-theologico-politicus. In the book neither author, nor place nor editor are mentioned. This was no superfluous precaution, for in 1678, hardly one year after … [Click Below for Full Description]

In - 4ø; 4 cc., 176 pp., 192 pp., 4 cc. con 94 figure incise in legno a piena pagina nel testo; legatura del tempo in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso, taglio marmorizzato. Bell'esemplare assolutamente genuino, solo qualche piccolo segno di tarlo restaurato al margine bianco di poche carte. Seconda edizione (prima tiratura con la data 1677), migliorata e accresciuta del capitolo sul "modo di levare il fumo alli camini s? fatti, come da farsi di Andrea Minorelli", con l'aggiunta di una tavola di camini. "Questa seconda edizione Š assai pi-- completa e pregiata della prima" (Riccardi). Il trattato di architettura di Giuseppe Viola Zanini appartiene ad un genere di letteratura propriamente tecnica e con finalit... pratica che si sviluppa nel '600. A questo genere appartengono i trattati del Branca (Manuale d'architettura, Ascoli, 1629), del Barca (Avvertimenti e regole circa l'architettura civile, Milano, 1620), dell'Osio (Architettura civile, Milano 1641), del Capra (La nuova architettura familiare, Bologna, 1678). "Zanini's treatise is distinguished by its regional focus. Aimed at a local audience, Zanini?s ideas were exemplified through buildings and works of art predominantly drawn from Padua and nearby north Italian cities. Zanini's main contribution is that he provides the first formal discussion of the principles of quadratura ceiling painting, a subject explored in great depth by other XVIIth century authors, such as Agostino Mitelli.

Ex-libris (étiquette) de l'évêché de Chartres au contreplat et ex-libris ms. de la bibliothèque de St Jean du Val (diocèse de Chartres) sur le titre. 84 fig. gravées sur bois dans le texte, (32) ff., 511 pp., (9) pp. Quelques mouillures pâles. Seconde édition corrigée et augmentée du Monde ou Traité de la lumière, pour lequel Michel Bobin avait obtenu le privilège en 1663. Cette partie est illustrée de 32 figures gravées sur bois. Le reste de l'édition reprend le même texte que celui de l'édition originale de 1664 : le Traité de l'Homme proprement dit, illustré de 52 figures, les Remarques de Louis de La Forge et la traduction de la préface de M. Schuyl pour l'édition latine de 1664. Conçu au début des années 1630, le Traité de l'Homme était resté inédit à la mort de l'auteur, celui-ci ayant préféré ne pas le livrer à l'impression après la condamnation de Galilée en 1633. Rédigé en français, c'est pourtant la traduction latine (établie par le philosophe hollandais Florent Schuyl d'après une copie manuscrite de l'ouvrage) qui fut imprimée en premier en 1662. Ce livre qui décrit la physiologie et les mouvements du corps de l'homme comme ceux d'une machine mécanique eut une influence considérable sur les philosophes matérialistes du siècle suivant. Bon exemplaire. Guibert, 203.

Des-Cartes, Renati
Apud Danielem Elsevirium,, Amstelodami, 1677. In 8? (cm 14,4 x 19,5), suggestiva legatura piena pelle settecentesca, decorata, con titolo al dorso, pp (36), 222, settantacinque incisioni silografiche nel testo di cui diciotto a piena pagina. Esemplare in buone condizioni,tiratura senza ritratto di Cartesio in antiporta, venduto separatamente e presente in poche copie, bruniture marcate ed uniformi dovute al tipo di carta. Nel 1643 la filosofia cartesiana viene condannata dall'universit? di Utrecht; quattordici anni prima dell'impressione di questa edizione, tutta l'opera di Cartesio viene messa all'Indice dalla Chiesa cattolica. Il primo tentativo di fornire un'esposizione sistematica della propria filosofia della natura risale agli anni che vanno dal 1629 al 1633, ossia al periodo in cui Descartes stava lavorando al trattato "Le Monde ou trait? de la lumi?re", trattato che per? rimase incompleto e che uscir? postumo nel 1664. Ad ogni modo, esposizioni alquanto elaborate della filosofia naturale cartesiana si trovano sia nei saggi che seguono al "Discours de la m?thode", specialmente i primi due, sia, ovviamente, nell'opera pi? ampia uscita in prima edizione nel 1644, cio? i "Principia philosophiae". La peculiarit? del testo cartesiano rispetto agli altri manuali di insegnamento del tempo, si trova soprattutto nell'apparizione di un nuovo stile scientifico, che si traduce in una diversa scrittura matematica, ma anche nell'unione della metafisica e della fisica in un manuale coerente, o nell'elaborazione di una nuova fisica che verr? successivamente disconosciuta dalla stori … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gage, Thomas
A. Clark, London, 1677. 8vo, titlepage, 3ff, folding map, pp 447 (misnumbered 547), and 9ff of index. "The third Edition enlarged by the Author, with a new and accurate Map." Sabin notes that the final chapter of the first edition, relating his trip to Rome, was suppressed in all later editions. Gage was a consummate rascal and his story of life in Mexico -- a unique relation in its time, as non-Spaniards were not alllowed into the Spanish colonies -- provided the only picture of the places described available in the English-speaking world. He was a Dominican priest in Mexico and Guatemala for about 10 years before making his "escape" back to England, funded by the theft of his parishioners' contributions, and ready and willing to stir up mischief for the Spanish, of which this book is one evidence. The other is the island of Jamaica, which he convinced Cromwell to seize, being insufficiently protected by the Spanish. Provenance of this copy: on ffep is the distinguished bookplate of G.R.G. Conway (1873 - 1926?), who was an English civil engineer who spent a number of years in Mexico as director of utility companies; but he was also a historian of Mexico and great collector: he issued in a very limited edition a selection of Gage's book in 1920. On front paste down is the bookplate of Frederick Ducane Godman (1834 - 1919), English natural scientist, co-author of Biologia Centrali-Americanum. Sabin 26300. Contemporary speckled calf, original spine relaid, with raised bands and title piece, in slipcase. Map in excellent condition: very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

OUGHTRED, William.
1652; 1677; 1660. A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his Mathematical recreations. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (Correspondence III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, Practitioners, p. 192). One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises. Ad I. Third and best edition of Oughtred's most important work, edited by John Wallis, with three further treatises published here for the first time (or the first time in Latin for the last). Clavis mathematicae (The key of the mathematics now forged and filed in the English edition, 1647) was first published as Arithmeticae in numeris in 1631 and contained all that was then known in arithmetic and algebra. Both popular and hugely influential, both in England and on the Continent, the Clavis was translated into English in 1647 by Robert Wood and as late as 1694 a new translation by Halley was published. It was here that Oughtred introduced the signs x for multiplication and :: for proportion, along with many other signs and abbreviations which have not been adopted, though in a number of cases his lead has bee … [Click Below for Full Description]
