En favorisant la recherche de vérités purement humaines, en identifiant ‘Raison’ et ‘Verbe divin’, entendement divin et principe général de toutes choses, création divine et lois physiques mécanistes, Malebranche facilitait la naissance du ‘Grand Horloger’ " (En Français dans le texte, n°111).

        Abriss der WeltberŸhmten Statt Jerusalem samt ihren Vor StŠtten wie sie zur Zeit Christi im Flor gestanden, .

      Artist: Seutter Matthias (- 1757) Augsburg; Issued in: Augsburg; date: c 1730 1678 - Artist: Seutter, Matthias (1678- 1757) Augsburg; Issued in: Augsburg; date: c. 1730; - Condition: ; Map shows the city map of Jerusalem with description of the buildings. MatthŠus Seutter was born in 1685, 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. MatthŠus 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.

        The Laws and Customes of Scotland, in Matters Criminal. Wherein is to be seen how the civil law, and the laws and customs of other nations do agree with, and supply ours.

      Printed by Thomas Brown, Edinburgh 1678 - FIRST EDITION, 4to, pp. [xvi], 272, 271-518, [1]. Title-page printed in red and black. Somewhat later panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label. Rather browned and soiled, first few leaves with some damage to blank areas (touching a letter in imprint on title-page), woodcut initial on first page of dedication crudely coloured in with ink and this offset onto nearby pages, cut close by the binder (headline or signature occasionally just shaved). Binding a bit marked, joints cracked but sound, head of spine worn. Ownership inscriptions to title-page of William Alexander (1840); to verso of title-page of William Duncan, Writer (14 Feb 1732, repeated on rear flyleaf); to p. 226 of Edmond Hone, Witness (1711); and on p. 455 'For Mungo Hales' in an 18th-century hand. Mackenzie's work 'provided the first systematic and detailed exposition of Scots criminal law' (ODNB). The right to print it was restricted by order of the Privy Council to three Edinburgh printers - Thomas Brown, George Swintoun, and James Glen - and issues exist with each of their imprints.

      Wolfgang Moritz Endter 1678 and 1687, Nürnberg - Equine porn from Baroque Germany? Also the ultimate in equine coifs from that time. 34 by 21 cm. The first volume has 46 engraved illustrations, one being the half-title plate, the others, about a third of a page each. The second work comes with 43 plates, including title (or half-title), five folding plates, five two-paged plates and three plates of which have two illustrations each and are counted as two in the book's own numbering system (but not by us). Other copies located on OCLC First Search have the same or lower plate count, with a single copy, that owned by the Huntington Library, supposedly containing 48 leaves of plates. We believe this counts the double paged plates as two each, and thus our copy is complete. The first work is in Latin and German, the second work also includes French and Italian. The first work is an important work in the veterinary literature, while the second, concerned primarily with the breeding of horses, has the far wider appeal to today's audience for equine literature because of the graphic and sometimes very strange plates. The vellum is heavily soiled and wizened, with repaired tears along joints, and large cup stain on front, etc. Spine tip repaired. Missing flap to plate 10 of the second volume.

        An ESSAY, Upon the Inscription of MacDuff's Crosse in FYFE. 1678

      Edinburgh: Printed by the Heir of Andrew Anderson, Printer to the King's most Excellent Majesty, 1678. 1st edition (Wing C-7593). Bound in later stiff grey card stock paper covers, with title hand-inked to front cover. Bookplate [Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave, signed in the plate, "A. S. Leslie, 1898"]. Paper a bit grubby from use, with leaves trimmed a bit lean. Old repair to title leaf. A VG copy.. 20 pp. 4to: A - B^4 C^2. 7-5/8" x 5-3/4" This is a very rare essay about the inscription on MacDuff's Cross in Fife, Scotland. "According to tradition it marks the spot where the Thane of Fife passed on his way to Auchtermuchty while fleeing from Macbeth. It was erected by Malcolm III to commemorate the death of Macbeth. The inscription along with the shaft were destroyed at the Reformation and only the base remains... Although badly damaged in 1559 by the Reformers, the cross is still very much a legendary place of sanctuary for all those of the MacDuff clan who had been involved in murder. Such MacDuff clan members could achieve atonement by performing a series of rituals. Having touched the MacDuff stone, they would then wash themselves nine times at nearby Ninewells. They would also have to pay a forfeit of nine cows.".

        An Apology for the True Christian Divinity, as the same is held forth, and preached by the people called, in scorn Quakers ?

      [Aberdeen: John Forbes], 1678. First English edition. [24], 412, [28] pp. 4to. Contemporary speckled sheep. Covers worn, with loss to tail of spine, boards exposed at fore-edge of covers, lower corner of X1 torn off with loss to text. First English edition. [24], 412, [28] pp. 4to. The first English edition of Barclay's classic work of Quaker theology, first published as Theologi? vere Christian? apologia (Amsterdam, 1676). This copy with the signature and notes of Quaker bibliographer and writer John Whiting (1656-1722). Whiting was persecuted and eventually imprisoned from 1679 to about 1685 for refusing to pay tithes, and he read this book while in prison (a marginal note marks Barclay's discussion "concerning Tythes"). Whiting's notes at the end of the book on Barclay's An Epistle of Love and Friendly Advice to the Ambassadors of the several Princes of Europe (1677) were perhaps later used for his Catalogue of Friends' Books (1708), "the first attempt at Quaker bibliography" (ODNB). Barclay's Episitle, as well as multiple editions of the Apology for the True Christian Divinity, are cited in Whiting's bibliography, p. 6. ESTC R14317; Wing B720 (citing this edition as the first). Provenance: John Whiting (inscription on title-page, "John Whiteing His Booke 1680," some marginalia, and long autograph note on p. 412 concerning Barclay's An Epistle of Love and Friendly Advice to the Ambassadors of the several Princes of Europe)

Fünfte und letzte Auflage, gleichzeitig erste von Johann Christoph Vogelsang revidierte und korrigierte Ausgabe des erstmals 1652-53 erschienenen Werkes, mit einer Kurzbiographie von Paracelsus. "At least five printings attest to the usefulness of such a dictionary, in which the dark phrases of chemists were ordered and classified" (DSB).

(Sudhoff 371). - Johnson lebte in der Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts als Chemiker in London. Er war ein Anhänger von Paracelsus und mit alchemistischen Begriffen wohl vertraut, wie sein obiges Werk belegt. "Johnson was placed among the early followers of Helmont but later was considered a traitor by the dogmatic iatrochemists" (DSB). - Papierbedingt gering gebräunt, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 7, 150; Ferguson I, 439 (Anm.); Sudhoff 409

        Some proposals for the imploying of the poor, especially in and about the City of London. And for the prevention of begging, a practice so dishonourable to the nation, and to the Christian religion. In a letter to a friend, by T.F.

      London, printed for Brabazon Aylmer at the three Pigeons in Cornhill, 1678. 4to., 24pp., bound in 20th century marbled boards with title in gilt on red morocco spine label. A very good crisp copy. First edition. Wing F.971. Kress 1464. Goldsmiths 2264. Not in Massie. Thomas Firmin (1632-1697) had learned to distrust mere almsgiving and made it his business to enquire into the condition of the poor by personal investigation and to reduce the causes of social distress by economic effort. His first philanthropic experiment was occasioned by the trade disorganisation of the plague year (1665). He provided employment at making up clothing for hands thrown out of work. Other schemes involved the building of storage space by the river for corn and coals to be retailed to the poor in hard times at cost price. Early in 1676 he had started a workhouse in Little Britain, for the employment of the poor in the linen manufacture. Firmin employed as many as 1700 spinners, besides flax dressers and weavers. His arrangements for the comfort and cleanliness of his hands and for the industrial training of children rescued from the streets was admirable. But the scheme never paid. Firmin sold his linens at cost price and the annual loss on the venture was £200. In addition to his philanthropic efforts on behalf of the poor, Firmin was a prison philanthropist and worked hard to alleviate the condition of prisoners, particularly those imprisoned for debt. The present work is his most important and best known publication. It contains, amongst other things, an account of his own Work-House.

        The Works of Geber,

      London: Printed for N.E. by Thomas James; and are to be sold by Book-sellers., 1678. The Most Famous Arabian Prince and Philosopher. Faithfully Englished by R[ichard]. R[ussell]. a Lover of Chymistry. Octavo (170 × 105 mm). Early 20th-century tan half calf ruled in blind, brown cloth sides; double gilt fillets forming compartments to spine, black morocco label with gilt titles to second, date to foot gilt; marbled edges. Errata leaf to rear of volume. Later bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Corners and spine rubbed, light mottling to rear board, marbling faded, tan-burns to pastedowns and binder's blanks, minor stain to signature B7.r, very small hole to C with minimal loss to letter on verso, spill-burn to F7, S with small hole and torn corner with no loss of text, wormhole to V with no loss of text; sporadic and faint marginal soiling. A very good copy. First edition in English of Geber's chemical corpus, De alchimia, taken by Sarton to represent "the best Latin knowledge on chemistry" available in the 13th century; this copy a variant imprint unrecorded by Wing, who only mentions an imprint reading "to be sold by Robert Clavel", though a genuinely rare book either way, with only three appearances at auction in nearly 60 years. De alchimia is here divided into five chapters. I. Of the Investigation or Search of Perfection [De investigatione perfectionis]. II. Of the Summe [sic] of Perfection, or of the Perfect Magistery. The First Book [Summa perfectionis]. III. Of the Sum of Perfection, or of the Perfect Magistery. The Second Book [ibid.]. IV. Of the Invention of Verity, or Perfection [De inventione veritatis sive perfectionis]. V. Of Furnaces, &c. With a Recapitulation of the Authors Experiments [De fornacibus]. According to the Fihrist of Ibn al-Nadim, Jabir b. Hayyan was born in Tarsus, flourished in Kufah in the early 'Abbasid era and died in 160 AH (776-7 CE), though other sources give his nisbah as al-Tusi and one even identifies him as a Sabaean convert to Islam, citing instead the nisbah al-Harrani. "It should be noted, however, that some historians and scholars who have addressed the 'Jabir-Geber' problem do not believe that the Latin Geber was de facto the ninth [sic] century Jabir ibn Hayyan, but rather a twelfth- or thirteenth-century Latin 'pseudo-Geber'. The position is maintained, in part, due to the absence of any original extant Arabic works prior to the twelfth or thirteenth century which correspond directly to the Latin Geber corpus" (Medieval Science, Technology and Medicine: An Encyclopaedia, p. 280). Moreover, "Western tradition has attributed important discoveries in chemistry to Geber, namely of aqua regia, sulphuric acid, nitric acid and nitrate of silver; but none of these discoveries is mentioned in the Arabic works which bear his name; they do not appear till the Latin works of the end of the 13th century" (Encyclopaedia of Islam). In fact, the Summa is the only text to which a terminus ante quem this early can be assigned, with Peter of Abano, probably the real author of the Summa, quoting the text by name in his Conciliator, which he wrote sometime in the first decade of the 14th century (Newman). Newman explains further that "No manuscripts or reliable witnesses of the Geberian opuscula [I, IV and V of the present volume] dating before the early fifteenth century have yet been found", with Yale University's MS Mellon 5, written around 1400 in a German script, being the earliest document to contain any of his chemical corpus aside from the Summa. This last was first printed in the 1480s in Rome by Eucharius Silber, along with a text entitled Liber investigationis magisterii. A second Roman printing in 1524 (with a Testamentum and variant of the Liber investigationis) was followed by a third edition in 1541 (although Newman does not give a location, Ferguson locates a 1541 printing in Nuremberg) which contains the Summa, De inventione veritatis, the Liber de fornacibus construendis and a third form of the Liber investigationis. "All subsequent printings of Â… [these texts] derive from these three editions". Newman suggests that De investigatione perfectionis and De invention veritatis are in fact the work of two different authors, neither of whom composed the Summa: "Both texts were written to correspond to the Summa's reference to a Liber de investigatione by 'Geber'". Even if "Geber" is a figure of doubtful historicity, the continuing misattribution of texts to an 8th-century Arab can be interpreted as an eloquent illustration of indebtedness to Islamic learning in a late medieval Europe making its way towards the Renaissance, propelled by the translation of original Arabic texts and of Arabic recensions of various Greek texts otherwise lost.

      - Utan ort, 1678. 4:o. (2),+ 80,+ 105, 126-137, 137, 137-178 s. Lagerfläckar och enstaka småfläckar, kraftigt fläckig s. 13-14 i första pagineringsföljden och s. 162 i andra. Svag fuktrand i övre hörn, kraftigare s. 85 i första följden. Titelbladet taget från ett annat exemplar och insatt, något skuret nedtill. Halvpergamentband från slutet av 1800-talet, guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett, marmorerade pärmpapper och röda snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1235. Ej i Thesaurus. Warmholtz 5055, not. Warmholtz har inte sett denna bok utan känner den bara ur en bokförteckning. Den är ett angrepp på den svenska anklagelseakten mot Jörgen Krabbe, ?Een sanfärdigh och uthförligh deduction.? Jörgen Krabbe (1633-78) var en av de rikaste danska adelsmännen i Skåne vid tiden efter det svenska erövrandet. Han ägde både Krageholms slott, Tosterup och Ingelstrup. Han svor svenska kungen trohet och representerade t.o.m. skånska adeln vid riksdagen 1668 tillsammans med Knud Thott. Efter det danska anfallet 1676 var den gamla danska adelns inställning oklar, många var missnöjda med det svenska styret. Krabbe själv besökte under kriget Kristian V i hans läger, men så sent som i september 1677 slöt han i alla fall upp vid Karl XI:s sida. Frisläppta svenska fångar anklagade honom dock för samröre med snapphanar och efter en mycket summarisk rättegång dömdes han på svaga bevis till döden och halshöggs den 16 januari 1678 i Malmö. Många menade att svenska staten, och framförallt vicegeneralguvernören i Malmö Jörgen Sperling, i själva verket bara ville komma åt hans ägodelar och gods.

        Considerations concerning free-schools, as settled in England.

      Oxford, printed at the Theater ... and are to be had there. And in London at Mr. Simon Millers at the signe of the Star near the West end of S. Pauls Church. Anno 1678. 8vo., (8) + 112pp., with a large engraved vignette of the Sheldonian Theatre on title-page, well bound in mid-20th century maroon morocco gilt, with the armorial bookplate of a ducal member of the Order of the Garter on front pastedown (presumably transferred from an earlier binding). A very good copy. First edition. Wing W.1015. Madan (Oxford Books>) 3198. Muirhead (English at School>) 25. Goldsmiths 2265. Although in some ways a disappointing essay, there is still material here that is of real historical interest. Christopher Wase (1627-1690), schoolmaster and classical scholar, had a colourful early life and was for a time tutor to William Herbert (b. 1640), eldest son of the Earl of Pembroke. He was subsequently headmaster of Dedham Royal Free School in Essex (1655-1662), and of Tonbridge School, Kent (1662-1668). In April 1669, largely through the patronage of the diarist John Evelyn, Wase was appointed to the post of historiographer in the office of Joseph Williamson, secretary of state. 'In response to criticisms that the growth of free schools had threatened social distinctions and (allegedly) contributed to the dissension that led to the civil wars, undertook a pioneer investigation of the nation's grammar schools. ... Wase's Considerations concerning free-schools, as settled in England> was finally published in Oxford in 1678. 'Miserable is the face of any nation', he declared, 'where neither schools nor universities be frequented: no law, no safe commerce, a general ignorance and a neglect of duty both to God and man' [p.34]. He therefore proposed to increase rather than to limit the number of free schools in England and Wales, and concluded that adequate instruction should be provided for petty scholars in every parish in the land. This, he maintained, would be both socially and economically advantageous to the nation.' [Richard E. Hodges in ODNB]. Arnold Muirhead (The English at School>) additionally notes that 'this has a most interesting section on the value of a school library ....' the greatest benefit to learners after the Master, is a good library, 'and there is a discussion on what books it should contain'. On the subject of books, Wase does indeed give sound advice: 'Best editions, as latest are ordinarily, may be desirable, yet former are not to be rejected. So much judgement in dealing with the bookseller as not to buy corrupt copies at the rate of the best, but at a price vile as they are, is frugality> in a scholar: when to be skil'd in the choice of editions and withal so nice as to nauseat what is not most elegant in print and binding is not discretion in a poor student, but luxury>'. In other words, students should pay booksellers low prices for poor-quality copies of books. Top quality books are expensive luxuries.

        Divine Conduct,

      London - printed for R. White, 1678 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. An extremelyscarce,first edition of John Flavel's Divine Conduct. Bound in quarter leather.

Date, Title and Publisher's information taken fromthe pagination match on the ESTC. John Flavel, 1627 1691, was an English Presbyterian clergyman. Flavel was born at Bromsgrove, Worcestershire and studied at Oxford. A Presbyterian, Flavel was first a minister of Diptford in Devon, and then for the majority of his life, of Dartmouth. The Five Mile Act of 1665 forced Flavel to Slapton, however, he continued to journey to and preach at Dartmouth secretly. After the Declaration of Indulgence 1687, Flavel returned to Dartmouth as a licensed Congregationalist minister and resumed public preaching. Flavelwas a prolific and popular author, as he sought to circumvent renewed persecution of nonconformists by continuing his ministry in print. Over the next ten years he published A Token for Mourners (1674), The Seaman's Companion (1676), Divine Conduct (1678), Sea Deliverances (c. 1679), The Touchstone of Sincerity (1679), The Method of Grace (1681), Navigation Spiritualized (1682), A Saint Indeed (1684), and Treatise on the Soul of Man (1685).
