Med titelbladet i första delen som anger årtalet 1655, och inte 1652. Andra upplagan, den första utkom i Paris 1675. Författare till depescherna var den franska diplomaten Pierre Hector Chanut (1604-67) som åren 1645-49 var fransk ministerresident i Sverige samt innehade ambassadörsposten i Stockholm och i Lübeck 1649-53. Depescherna från 1649 till 1655 anses dock huvudsakligen vara skrivna av Chanuts sekreterare de Piques. Martin Weibull har i "Historisk tidskrift" 1887-88 redogjort för verkets innehåll i jämförelse med originalrapporterna och kritiserar utgivaren Linage de Vaucienne för uteslutningar, misstag m.m.

This work has also attributed to Samuel Pepys, but the attribution is doubtful." However, this being said & for what it's worth, we do note "S.P., Esq." on the title-page and the fact a copy resides in Pepys' library at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Scarce in the trade, with ABPC showing 1993 as the last time at auction.

PLOT, Robert.
Oxford: Printed in the [Sheldonian] Theater. FIRST EDITION, and a copy in an exceptional binding, of Plot's extensive survey of the natural history of Oxfordshire in the true Baconian tradition, treating of its flora, fauna, geology, palaeontology and curiosities in general, with the stress on the unusual and anomalous. In this work Plot investigates the geology at length, including erosion and in particular an extensive study of the fossils, but without appreciating that they could be used to identify strata, although he did have some notion of stratigraphy. "Some seventy species of fossils are described and figured by Robert Plot in his work on Oxfordshire, 1677. Here we have excellent descriptions and beautifully engraved drawings of these objects from the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Among them are many well-known forms (given proper names by later authorities), such as the echinoid Clypeus plotii. He recognised the essential differences between those unrelated groups of bivalved shells, the braciopods and the lamellibranchs" (Challinor). On the strength of this book Plot was elected fellow of the Royal Society; a few years later he was appointed its secretary, then he was made the first keeper of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and at the same time professor of chemistry. Loosely inserted in this copy are four pages of notes on the book, probably in the hand of James Sotheby, whose signature is on the title-page. This copy was among the heirlooms of the Sotheby family removed from Ecton Hall, Northants, and sold at Sotheby's on 21/22 November 1955, lot 371. Tipped in is … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

SCHNEIDEWINI, Johannis [Johann Schneidewein]
Strasburg and Frankfurt: Georgii Andreae Dolhopffii, 1677. Strasburg and Frankfurt: Georgii Andreae Dolhopffii. 1677. hb. Thick 4to, . Johann Schneidewein (1519-1568) was a German jurist. At the age of eleven, he entered the University of Wittenberg and became acquainted with Martin Luther, when he was a boarder at his house in 1544. At first, Scheidewein studied what we would now describe as the "liberal arts". He then turned his attention to the study of law and was granted the degree of licentiate in 1545 (some accounts say 1544). For the next four years he taught and, in 1551, was granted a professorhip in law at the university. In the years prior to his death, he was often consulted on legal matters of state, and several times took part in deputations to the imperial court at Speyer. He died in Wittenberg in 1568, and his tomb at the Castle Church in that city is close to Luther's. His main work was his Commentaries on Justinian, which were edited by Matthias Wesenbeck and first published in 1573. Our copy is a ninth edition and is bound in vellum with yapped edges and a leather spine in compartments, and bears the copperplate engraved frontispiece of Schneidewein. Pagination: [blank], [frontis.], [3], [Appendix, 8], 1-1904 (double-columned; two page numbers to a page). Index [94]. The vellum shows wear and some soiling.

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'.

Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier ("Narr"), Folio, ca. 33 × 20,5 cm, 2 ½ SS. auf 2 Bll., schwarzes Lacksiegel, altersgebräunt, leicht braunfleckig, öffnungsbedingt kleiner mittiger Einriss.. An den Superintendenten von Torgau, Dr. Paul Hoffmann, dem sie mitteilt, dass sie nun, nach Erhalt von Hoffmanns Briefe die Gründe einsähe, die das Wittenberger Consistorium bewogen hatte, den Schulmeister von Greudnitz und Wieblitz seines Amtes zu entheben. Sie hofft, dass sich unter den beiden Nachfolgekandidaten "ein tüchtiges Subjectum" befindet und kündigt an, dass sich Schleussner, der in ihrem Namen die Angelegenheit des Reinharzener Gerichtes regele, sich der Schulmeisterfrage annehmen werde.Über das von Hoffmann in Erinnerung gebrachte "Kirchen Capital, womit das Hauß Reinharz der Kirchen zu Greudnicz verhafftet seye", wisse sie "nicht das geringste" und müsse sich diesbezüglich erst mit ihren Stiefsöhnen ins "communiciren". Ihrerseits erinnert Löser den Superintendenten jedoch daran, die Collecta für die seiner Superintendentur unterstellte Kirche in Clöden zu übersenden, damit "bey künfftig angehentem Frühlings-Wetter, die hochnöthige Reparatur vorgenommen werden könne".
