        Peleponnesus Hodie Morea.

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ( - 1757) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1720 1678 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 58; - description: Decorative map of the total Peleponnes.; -vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        Felsina Pittrice. Vite de pittori bolognesi alla Maestà Christianissima di Luigi XIIII Re di Francia e di Navarra il Sempre Vittorioso consagrata

      Bologna: Domenico Barbieri’s Heir for Giovanni Francesco Davico, 1678. Two parts in one volume, 4to (239x168 mm); contemporary vellum over boards, spine with five raised bands and inked title, panels with blind-tooled center- and corner-pieces within a double frame (back panel stained); [16], 581, [1] pp.; [4], 606, [2] pp. With an allegorical woodcut of Bologna at the end of the first part, 50 full-page woodcut portraits within elaborate frames (8 frames are left blank, even though the name of the artist is mentioned below), and several other illustrations in text (allegorical and mythological figures, the genealogical tree of the Carracci family, the funeral apparatuses for Agostino Carracci, etc.). As in most copies, the leaf of approbations, "extremely rare" according to Frati (see below), is not present. On the title-page ownership's inscription by the celebrated English painter Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792). A very good, genuine copy.FIRST EDITION, early issue with the name of the sponsor of the edition, Giovanni Francesco Davico, on the title-page, and with the famous insult towards Raphael (p. 471, line 14), called "Boccalaio Urbinate", which was subsequently corrected in "gran Raffaele".The Felsina Pittrice is the most important history of modern Bolognese painting. It deals with the life and works of celebrated Bologna artists such as F. and G.B. Francia, M.A. Raimondi, F. Primaticcio, G.L. Valesio, F. Albani, D. Zampieri, and S. Contarini. Of particular length and relevance are the parts dedicated to Guido Reni, Agostino Mitelli, the Procaccinis (Ercole, Camillo, G. Cesare and Carlo Antonio) and the Carraccis (Lodovico, Agostino, Annibale and Antonio). A third volume of additions was edited by Luigi Crespi in Rome in 1769.Carlo Cesare Malvasia is considered as the most rimportant historian of the Bologna painting school. He dedicated to Bologna a volume of Pitture di Bologna (1686) and a city guide that was reprinted several times until the end of the 18th century. Of noble family, Malvasia was a pupil of the painters Giacinto Campana and Giacomo Cavedone. In 1639 he made the acquaintance in Rome of Cardinal Bernardino Spada, a great art mecenas and collectionist, and the sculptor Alessandro Algardi. Malvasia taught law at the Bologna University and later gained a doctorate in theology, becoming canon at the chapter of the cathedral.The present copy comes from the library of Joshua Reynolds, one of the most influential English painters and theorists of his time, specialising in portraits. He was also a founder and first president of the Royal Academy of Arts. He was knighted by George III in 1769.Reynolds was deeply influenced by Italian painters and Italian art theorists. He spoke Italian fluently and had in his library a copy of the Vocabolario della Crusca. "Among the Italian art literature that Reynolds studied particularly intensively was Carlo Cesare Malvasia's Felsina Pittrice (1678) and his Pitture di Bologna (1686). This explains, to an extent, the importance Reynolds attached to Bolognese paintings in his Discourses. Whereas we can only presume that Reynolds possessed a copy of the Felsina Pittrice because he directly quoted from it in his Discourses, Pitture di Bologna was listed twice in the auction of his library at Philipp's" (I. Wenderholm, The President as a Reader: Reynolds and Books, in: "The Artist as Reader: On Education and Non-Education of Early Modern Artists", H. Damm, M. Thimann & C. Zittel, eds., Leyden, 2013, p. 214).S. Piantanida, L. Diotallevi & G. Livraghi, Libreria Vinciana, Autori italiani del Seicento, Milan, 1951, no. 4381; J.

        A Representation and Veiw of All the Buildings of the Temple as also of the Houses Round About on the South Side of the City, according to F. Lamy

      Amsterdam: A.D. Putter. Bird's eye view. Copperplate engraving. Image measures 14.25 x 20" Bird's eye view. Copperplate engraving. Image measures 14.25 x 20". This stunning Escheresque map depicts the artistic imaginations of the third Temple of Solomon as envisioned by the prophet Ezekiel. It depicts the temple complex as a ziggurat style structure dominating the city of Jerusalem. The first Temple was, according to the Hebrew Bible, built in the 10th century BCE and destroyed in 586 BCE by the Babylonians. The second Temple is supposedly built in 151 BCE under the rule of Darius the Great. In the 2nd century, when the Greek King Antiochus IV Epiphanes ordered Greek statues erected within the compound, the second Temple came under threat. The second Temple was eventually destroyed in 70 CE during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem. Ezekiel visualized the third temple in great detail and his vision was then translated by various artists. This is one such translation by Bernard Lamy, illustrated by Ferdinand Delamonce. Appears in Lamy's "De Tabernaculo foederis, de sancta civitate Jerusalem, et de Templo ejus". Bernard Lamy (1678-1753) was a philosopher, theologian and mathematician, who reconstructed various structures from the Old Testament. This is a beautiful example of his work.

Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 7697. A new edition was printed in Åbo by the widow who remarried with Johannes Gezelius the Elder. The work is concluded with an interesting section containing biographical data on pp. 31-43, in which the travels and military achievements of the deceased are described. Admiral Johan Bergenstierna, who died on the ship Victoria prior to the naval battle at Rügen in 1676, travelled to East India, among other places, an visited, for example, Java, Siam and Japan. Bergenstierna is usually counted as the first Swede to visit Japan, an event which took place in 1647. This is the only presentation of his travels made in older times, and the preacher at the Admirality, Alcinius, obviously had access to Bergenstierna's travel journals. These are now lost, which makes this work the main source of his travels. Bergenstierna owned Hadnäs on Åland and is buried in the church of Lemland. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Amsterdam: A. Gaasbeeck, 1678. Compact, practical, and complete with a comprehensive index, this popular medical handbook would have made an excellent companion for a busy physician. Although this volume was certainly intended for utilitarian purposes, the condition is remarkably good; the binding even retains the original loop and bead closures, which are almost always missing on books of this age and purpose. The text is based on the practice of the lauded Dutch physician Paul Barbette (d. 1666), and includes a mix of symptoms, concoctions, and pithy medical advice as observed and experienced by the author. Of particular interest is Barbette's unusual stance against bloodletting, a practice that was still widely used to treat illness in this period. Originally published in 1665, this work went through several different printings over the next 30 years, including translations into French and English. The present issue is based on the Leyden edition of 1669, but without the errata (see Krivatsky).. 150 x 83 mm. (5 7/8 x 3 1/4"). 8 p.l., 248 pp., [28] leaves.

        Lettera intorno al'invenzione degli Occiali. Scritta da Francesco Redi all'Illustrissimo Signor Paolo Falconieri.

      In Firenze, Per Francesco Onofri Stampatore Granducale, 1678, 4, 14, (2) pp., 1 Titel- und 1 Textkpferstichvignette, marmor. Kartonband d.Zt. mit einem Titelschild a.d. Deckel feines Exemplar beigelegt deutsche Übersetzung v. Th. Greeff. VERY RARE, FINE COPY of the FIRST EDITION of an important and first printed study study on the history of EYEGLASSES by the indefatigable observer and investigator Francesco Redi.Maintaining that the invention of eyeglasses was unknown to the ancient Jews, Greeks. Romans and Arabs he attributes it to a FRIAR ALESSANDRO SPINA of Pisa."A first edition of the "Letter on the Invention of Spectacles", which is of extreme importance in the history of spectacles. Redi, through ignorant of the inventor of spectacles, was able to determine that Alessandro da Spina reinvented them." "Redi quotes from a sermon which Girodano da Rivalto preached at Florence in 1305, "It is not yet 20 years since the art was discovered of making eyeglasses, which give the power to see distinctly, which is one of the best and most necessary arts that the world possesses". Redi also republished what is probably the first reference of the use of a spectacles - apassage from a manuscript dated 1289." Britsih. Optical Assoc. Libr. Cat., II (1935), p.88"The Pisan origin of spectacles was first put forth by Carlo Roberto Dati (1619-76), a professor at the University of Florence, in a lecture he delivered in 1673 at the famous Accademia della Crusca. This lecture was revised subsequently and finally published posthumously, incorporating information from the Pisan Chronicle and the Annals as excerpted with deliberate inaccuracies by his good friend. Francesco Redi (1626-1697), chief physician at the court of the Grand Duke of Tuscany and a renowned scholar with "a perverse pleasure in perpetrating literary frauds.' according to Rosen. Redis private agenda included making it appear that Spina was in effect the virtual inventor or at least the second inventor since the first had refused to divulge the secret. He liked the striking similarity between Spina and Galileo, another Pisan, who had made his own telescope just from a report about such an instrument supposedly invented in Holland without having seen the instrument itself. Though Redi was born in nearby Arezzo, he had strong Florentine sympathies, which even led him to manufacture a document in order to give Florence some role at least as far as the first mention of the invention was concerned. He claimed to possess a manuscript, "Treatise on the Management of the Family", written in 1299 by a certain Sandro di Pippozzo in which the author mentioned spectacles as a new invention: "I find myself so burdened by age that I would not have the capacity to read and write without glasses, called eyeglasses, discovered most recently for the relief of the needy elderly when their sight declines". If this quotation could be verified, it would be the earliest mention of spectacles, antedating both Giordano's sermon and the Pisan Chronicle, and even the first Venetian mention of 1300, although the Venetian source does not seem to have been known to Redi. Clearly, it was a spectacular find, had it been genuine. But the manuscript was never published or shown to scholars for examination and comment and there seems to be no trace of this Sandro. It was too good to be true had it been otherwise, Redi would have exhibited the manuscript and used it at least as the occasion for one of his lectures. We must agree with Rosen that the manuscript was a pure invention." Vincent Ilardi, Renaissance Vision from Spectacles to Telescopes (2006), p.14-15Gamba 825 "Prima e rara ed."

Se trataba de un recorrido por toda la 'Magia' explicando por qué resultaba contra la religión tanto en sí misma (primero de los libros, de todos los tipos de magia adivinatoria) como por su ejercicio (libro segundo, de las prácticas mágicas -desde la pretidigitación a los maleficios, pasando por el cambio de sexo, la resurrección de los muertos, las invocaciones o los espectros-) para exponer cuáles debían ser los castigos para los así pecadores (libro tercero, del castigo del fuero externo) y cúal su restitución moral (libro cuarto, del castigo del fuero interno). Pero la obra no pudo imprimirse porque en el Consejo de Castilla se recibió una denuncia anónima en forma de Advertencias contra los libros de Magia de Francisco Villalpando, que ponían en cuestión seis aspectos de la obra. Denuncia que fue asumida por los alcaldes de corte, quienes multaron y desterraron a Villalpando 'pese a carecer los alcaldes de competencias en materia de imprenta' Al regreso del destierro, Villalpando se defendió acudiendo al presidente del Consejo de Castilla, Juan de Acuña, presentándole una respuesta que convenció al presidente, que la pasó al fiscal Gilimón de Mota, levantándose la suspensión a finales de 1615, pero con la orden de que al publicar la obra se insertasen tanto las Advertencias (aquí en p. 516-520) como la defensa de Villalpando frente a ellas. Aquella intervención y la reescritura del original para darlo a imprenta -el primero había sufrido en el proceso- ayudaron a que la obra no terminase de imprimirse por primera vez hasta agosto de 1618, en Sevilla, con el título de Epitomes delictorvm in qvibus aperta vel oculta inuocatio daemonis interuenit, libri IIII, con una Licencia que renovaba la anterior paralizada y daba cuenta de lo sucedido. Tras la edición sevillana en 1623 apareció en Mainz (Maguncia) una edición con el título alterado al de Daemonologia siue De magia naturali, daemoniaca, licita & illicita, deque aperta & occulta, interuentione & inuocatione daemonis libri qvatvor. La obra no volvería a imprimirse hasta años después de fallecido el autor, en esta edición lyonesa de 1678 que ofrecemos, de nuevo con cambio en el título, redactándose en singular como Epitome delictorum, sive De magia: In qva aperta vel occulta invocatio demonis intervenit.

        The ornithology of Francis Willughby of Middleton in the county of Warwick Esq; fellow of the Royal Society. In three books. Wherein all the birds hitherto known, being reduced into a method sutable to their natures, are accurately described. The descriptions illustrated by most elegant figures, nearly resembling the live birds, engraven in LXXVII copper plates. Translated into English, and enlarged with many additions throughout the whole work. To which are added, three considerable discourses, I. Of the art of fowling: with a description of several nets in two large copper plates. II. Of the ordering of singing birds. III. Of falconry. By John Ray, fellow of the Royal Society

      London: printed by A[ndrew]. C[larke]. for John Martyn, printer to the Royal Society, at the Bell in St. Pauls Church-Yard, MDCLXXVIII [1678]. First Edition thus. Paneled Calf. Near Fine+. First Edition in English of "one of the most important treatises on ornithology of all time, being the first systematic classification of the birds of the world." (Wood). Folio: [12],53,[3],55-271,[3],273-441,[7]pp, with 80 leaves of plates, most unsigned but some credited to Thomas Browne and three by F. H. van Hove, two by W. Faithorne, and one by W. Sherwin; two full-page letterpress tables. The two engraved plates showing techniques and equipment for snaring birds, often bound at p. 28, are here grouped with the 78 numbered plates (depicting more than 200 species) at the end. An excellent example, beautifully bound to style in recent speckled and paneled calf, spine gilt in seven compartments divided by raised bands, end papers renewed, title page in red and black. Binding pristine, book block generally clean and unmarked with widely intermittent spotting, one table with short closed tear (no loss), several plates lightly foxed, one plate shaved at outer edge with trivial loss. Wing W2880. Nissen IVB 991. BM(NH) V, p.2331. Wood (McGill), p.629. Zimmer (Ayer Ornithological Library), pp. 676-78. Anker (Copenhagen) 532. Lowndes 2939. In the 1660's, John Ray and his pupil (and, later, patron) Francis Willughby toured the Continent, gathering material for their planned complete classification of the vegetable and animal kingdoms. After Willughby's early death in 1672, which deprived Ray of both a collaborator and a friend, Ray took over his notes, and, having edited the incomplete manuscript and added his own observations, published Francisci Willughbeii ornithologiae libri tres; totum opus recognovit, digressit, supplevit Joannes Raius, in 1676. The present work, a translation by Ray, was published two years later and includes three more plates than the Latin edition as well as an expanded text, including three additional sections by Ray on fowling, falconry, and songbirds. In all, Ray and Willughby described more than 230 species, which they had themselves observed. Ray's systemization was revolutionary (Zimmer calls it the "cornerstone of modern systematic ornithology"), preserving the broad division of land and water birds, but rather than subdividing functionally, on grounds of diet, singing ability, and other behavioral traits, he introduced a classification based on anatomy, using for criteria foot structure, beak form, and body size. In the preface, Ray writes that the plates, despite some difficulties in communication between himself and the engravers, "are the best and truest, that is, most like the live Birds, of any hitherto engraven in Brass."

        Kirchen-Geschichte, das ist: Catholisches Christenthum durch die ganze Welt auszgebreitet, Insonderheit bey nächst verflossenen, und anjetzo fliessenden Jahr-hundert

      The first edition, Kerkelijke Historie van de geeheele Wereldt, came out in Antwerp between 1667 and 1671, and was subsequently translated into German and added to by other Jesuit historians. The work contains information on the Jesuit missions around the World, mainly focused on America and Asia -deals in remarkable length the missions of Brazil and Paraguay. It is handsomely illustrated with numerous half-page engravings in strong impressions. "Pages 311 to 457 are occupied with the Jesuit Missions among the Indians of Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Florida, Canada, Paraguay, and Maragnan [Island of St. Louis, a French colony off the coast of Brazil]. This portion of the work is illustrated with eighteen full-page copper-plate engravings, of which seven are portraits of Indians of each of the named countries, and eleven represent the martyrdom of the missionaries by the natives. These plates are beautifully drawn and engraved, and exhibit, with the most vivid and painful fidelity, the various forms of torture and massacre endured by the missionaries and their converts. The account of the missions in Florida and Canada fills thirty-four pages. One of the pages in this part of the work represents the martyrdom of Father Jogues and two French associates by the Mohawks; another exhibits the tortures by which Fathers Brebœuf and Lallemant were killed in Canada; and a third the murder of Fathers Daniel and Garnier by the Indians of the same country" (Field, 673). Hazart (1617-1690) was a Dutch Jesuit, author, historian and orator. His life was almost exclusively devoted to the struggle against the Calvinists of the Low Countries, but his real forte was writing. This universal church history is considered his greatest work; it deals with the Jesuit missions and missionaries in Asia, Africa, America and Europe. Among the fine engravings is a complex allegorical image, which visually suggests the goal of the Jesuit missions to expand throughout the world. In this engraving, a Mohul, an American Indian, and a Chinese are before a personified Church wearing the papal tiara and putti bearing a shield with the IHS motif. "Hazart divided his work into regional histories: Japanese, Chinese, Mughal, Vijayanagara, Abyssinian, African, Peruvian, Paraguayan, Brazilian, Floridian, Canadian, Mexican."

Bound in contemporary full calf, spine gilt (worn at the extremities of the spine, and along the hinge, bookplate removed from end paper, small library stamp on title-page.

The English physician Martin Lister (1638-1712) was the Royal Physician of Queen Anne. This present work was the first monograph dedicated to the mollusks. Lister describes essentially three classes of animals, i. e. spiders, terrestrial and fluvial shells and marine shells. The first section he writes of the many mistakes of previous authors writing on Arachnidae, to their venom and their use (!) in therapy. A classification of British spiders precedes the second chapter of the first part, where the different species of spiders are described according to their aspect and their alimentary habits. The second part includes as well some general description of terrestrial and fluvial shells and their classification. The largest part deals with marine shells and is illustrated by splendid plates. Lister describes exhaustively both Bivalves and Gastropods, including however also a sea-urchin among the molluscs; the last section is dedicated to the fossil shells which are found in England

Work attributed to Bernard de Montfaucon but whose paternity is discussed. Half black Chagrin late nineteenth. Back to Jansenist nerves with title and date. Cropped short in title page. Bernard de Montfaucon, from Roquetaillade, near Limoux, was one of the most learned men of his time and this is one of the most famous of his time, including his monumental work: ancient explained in FIGS. He was a Benedictine monk of the Congregation of St. Maur. The Abbey of La Trappe, founded by the Cistercian order was annexed to the domain of the Benedictines. It will be reformed according to the seventeenth 'the rule of strict compliance by Rance, much more rigid and severe than that of the Cistercians. It is precisely this reform says Bernard de Montfaucon, reform breathed a spiritual renewal to Christianity, and who saved the Abbey of La Trappe from oblivion and decay in many abbeys which fell at that time. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Oeuvre attribuée à Bernard de Montfaucon mais dont la paternité est discutée. Reliure en demi chagrin noir fin XIXe. Dos à nerfs janséniste avec titre et date. Rogné court en page de titre. Bernard de Montfaucon, originaire de Roquetaillade, près de Limoux, était un des hommes les plus érudits de son temps et par ce fait l'un des plus célèbres de son époque, notamment pour son oeuvre monumentale : l'antiquité expliquée en figures. Il était bénédictin, de la congrégation de Saint Maur. L'abbaye de la Trappe, fondé par l'ordre des cisterciens fut annexée au domaine des bénédictins. Elle sera réformée au XVIIe selon 'la règle de la stricte observance par l'abbé de Rancé, beaucoup plus rigide et sévère que celle des Cisterciens. C'est précisément cette réforme que commente Bernard de Montfaucon, réforme qui insuffla un renouveau spirituel à la chrétienté, et qui sauva l'abbaye de la Trappe de l'oubli et de la décadence dans laquelle tombèrent maintes abbayes à cette époque.

Klemming, Sveriges krig, s. 214 resp. Sveriges förhållanden s. 262. Warmholtz 5073 (andra arbetet) resp. 5082 (tredje arbetet). Efter en hård belägring fick Stralsund kapitulera den 15 oktober 1678. Vid freden i Nijmegen året därpå återgick dock Stralsund till Sverige. Det avslutande arbetet, med sitt tolv stanser långa ?Leichen-Ode? över svenskarnas namn och rykte, är ett exempel på vilken psykologisk och propagandistisk vikt Brandenburgs framgångar mot de ?oövervinneliga? svenskarna hade i Tyskland.

        De unicornu observationes novae. Secunda editione auctiores & emendatiores editae à filio...Amsterdam, Henricus Wetstein, 1678. 12mo. With an engraved frontispiece by Romeyn de Hooghe, a folding engraved plate, 20 full-page and 3 smaller engraved illustrations. Contemporary vellum.

      Krivatsy 822; Roling, "Der Wal als Schauobjekt", in: Enenkel & Smith (eds.), Zoology in early modern culture, pp. 172-196; Verkruijsse, Romeyn de Hooghe 1678.01; Wellcome II, p. 107. Second, expanded and illustrated edition, of a scientific study of unicorns and the miraculous properties of their horns. It was written by Thomas Bartholin (1616-1680), a Danish physician best known for his discovery of the lymphatic system. The author's father, Caspar Bartholin (1585-1629), and uncle, Ole Worm (1588-1654), had previously studied the horns of unicorns in a systematic way, with Worm concluding that the horns were in fact the tusks of a Narwhal. In De unicornu observations novae, Thomas combined all previous knowledge on unicorns and other horned animals and paid particular attention to the narwhal. Bartholin concluded that the Icelandic traders had sold the "horns" for hundreds of years, knowing they were the tusks of the Narwhal, a marine mammal, and that mainland Europeans took them for unicorn horns. Nevertheless, Bartholin saw no reason to consider the unicorn a fictitious animal.This second edition is expanded with Bartholin's study on the medicinal properties of the horns, prepared by his son Caspar (1655-1738). Bartholin concluded that the medicinal qualities were ascribed to them correctly and that the horn worked "like an early form of aspirin" (Roling). The second edition was also the first to be illustrated with numerous illustrations showing the narwhal and other horned animals, objects made from horns and a number of horns and tusks. The frontispiece by Romeyn de Hooghe shows an allegory of the traditional unicorn accompanied by several horned creatures.With bookplates and ownership inscriptions and annotations. With a few spots and the binding slightly soiled; a very good copy.
