        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.

Giving An Account of the State of those Countries. Together with a New Relation of the Present Grand Seignor's Seraglio, By the Same Author.

      London : Printed for R.[obert] L.[ittlbury] and M.[oses] P.[itt] and are to be sold by John Starkey and Moses Pitt, 1678 A fair copy of the 1st English translation of Tavernier's Six Voyages, with 22 (of 24) plates and numerous illustrations in the text. Classed as 'fair' because of the missing plates and the binding, which is full leather and requires repair, including some restitching and paper repair to initial leaves. John Baptiste Tavernier (1605-1689) was a gem merchant and traveled widely, making 6 voyages to Persia and to India between 1630 and 1668. He is known for his discovery of the Tavernier Blue Diamond. He was a keen observer and his account of his travels was very popular - first published in French and then translated into English, German, Dutch and Italian. This copy has a full leather binding - the boards are held by the stitching, but the joints are broken and the leather is worn to edges, with loss of leather to the top of the front board near the hinge. Internally there is a heraldic bookplate with text stating that it was bequeathed to the Free Grammar School, Birmingham, by James Woolley Esq. of Summerfield House in 1835. There is a small ink note to the fep to state that the book was rebound (?late 1700's) at a cost of 3/6d. The fep and initial blank are detached. Contents: dedications 4 pp; contents listing 8 pp; 'The Design of the Author' with directions to the binder 7 pp; list of computations 1 p; Book I Persian Travels pp 1-258 with 8 plates; Index pp 259-264; Title page Book II Indian travels 1678; text pp 1-208 with 14 plates - one folding - and numerous text illustrations; index pp 209-14; blank; title page 'A New Relation ...'1677; author's design 2pp; table 2pp; text 1-97 finis;; blank; title page 'A Short Description' 1677; publisher to the reader 6pp; letter p 107-119; listing of books sold by Moses Pitt 3pp. Lacks final blank and rear end paper. The text pages and plates are generally very clean and in very good condition; some pages have more brown toning and there is occasional light foxing. A word is crossed out on p 22 and there is ink marking at the bottom of p 202; the plate at page 10 in book II is partly attached to the following text page in the gutter - no text/image affected; the folding plate is partly detached and the corner of the plate at p149 has lost a bottom corner - image not affected. There are a number of mispaginations in Book I: 204 as 198; 209 as 199.

        Novissima et accuratior tabella magni ducatus Hetruriae.

      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: Very good; Map shows the Toskana and the island of Elba.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.

Bibl. danica III, sp. 233. Warmholtz 5102. Både fingerad tryckort och tryckare. ?Waremundus ab Ehrenberg? hade tidigare använts som pseudonym av juristen och skriftställaren Eberhard von Weyhe (1553-1633). Det svenska skeppsbrottet vid Bornholm i december 1678 är en av de största svenska katastroferna till sjöss! Efter sjöslaget vid Köge bukt i juli 1677 behärskade den danska flottan Östersjön, så när svenska armén på Rügen kapitulerade i december 1678 fick man be om fri lejd till Sverige, vilket också beviljades. Hela transportflottan gick dock på grund vid Bornholm natten mellan den 4 och 5 december. 1800 man förolyckades eller slogs ihjäl av öborna och resten togs tillfånga.

      Stockholm, Nicolaus Wankiif, 1678-(80?). 4:o. (8),+ 312, 311-318, 321-325,+ (3) s.+ 14 grav. och delvis utvikbara planscher. Fuktrand i nederkant inledningsvis, fläckar och lagerfläckar. Något nött samtida pergamentband, med titeln handskriven med bläck på ryggen. Flertal äldre namnteckningar på titelbladet, varav en något kladdigt borttvättad, bl.a. Nicolaus Petrus Lindahl, daterad Carlshamnia 1770. Collijn sp. 825. Fant 46. Hesse 1524. Warmholtz 6877. Schück III, s. 273 ff. Med planscherna utspridda i boken istället för samlade på slutet, vilket är det vanliga. Två av planscherna är ej delade. Schefferus sista och postumt utgivna arbete. Trots titelbladets årtal trycktes inte boken klar förrän tidigast i slutet av 1679 och troligare 1680. Schefferus ville göra vissa ändringar och kopparsticken var inte riktigt färdiga. Hans död den 26 mars 1679 avbröt dock allt arbete och boken gavs ut som den var, dock med tillägg av utgivaren Johannes Columbus. Schück anser den vara Schefferus bäst skrivna arbete, även om resultaten inte står sig. Den lär vara skriven på Karl XI:s befallning, för att styrka Sveriges rätt till vapnet tre kronor gentemot Danmark. Intressant proveniens. Karlshamn grundades av Karl X Gustav men fick stadsrättigheter först 1664 och sitt namn först 1668. Niclas Petrus Lindahl bör ha hört till första generationens Karlshamnsbor

        NOUVELLES DE L'AMERIQUE, OU LE MERCURE AMERIQUAIN. OU SONT CONTENÜES TROIS HISTORIES VERITABLES ARRIVÉES DE NOSTRE TEMPS

      Cologne [actually Amsterdam], 1678. [bound with:] de la Roche-Guilhen, Anne: ALMANZAIDE NOUVELLE.... Paris: Claude Barbin [i.e. Holland], 1676. 96pp. 12mo. Contemporary plain paper boards, spine renewed to style. Light wear to extremities. Very good. Evidently the first edition of this scarce work, offering three fictional tales on the theme of buccaneering and piracy in the Americas: "Histoire de Don Diego da Rivera," "Histoire de Mont-Val," and "Le destin de l'homme, ou les aventures de Don Bartelimi de la Cueba, Portugais." Significantly, these fictional tales of piracy appear in the same year and place as the greatest classic on Caribbean pirates, Alexander Esquemeling's DE AMERICAENSCHE ZEE-ROOVERS, translated into English in 1684 as THE BUCANIERS OF AMERICA. The tales here are drawn from Esquemeling and illustrate the endless appeal of piracy tales. Bound in after is an early edition (1676) of the novel, ALMANZAIDE..., first printed in 1674. Set in Morocco, this was the first of approximately twenty popular romances produced by female novelist Anne de la Roche- Guilhen (1644-1710). Another edition was printed in 1678 at Rouen. Perhaps the earliest pirate fiction, drawn from the first edition of the greatest classic in the genre.

      Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 759 & 760; Praz, p. 502. Second edition of volume 1 and first edition of volume 2 of a very attractive emblem book by Adriaan Spinniker (1678-1745). Together they contain 84 beautifully engraved emblems: 80 by Vincent van der Vinne (who also drew and engraved the frontispiece used for both volumes, with its title revised for the continuation) and 4 (for the Spiegel) by J.C. Philips. Isaac van der Vinne's father and nephew were both named Vincent, but the present artist-engraver was probably the nephew (1686-1742). The emblems show scenes from the Bible and are followed by brief excerpts from the relevant parts of the Bible and longer verses giving further information about it. Spinniker was a minister of the church for the Mennonite Congregation in Amsterdam. In fine condition, with only an occasional minor spot. The binding has a few scuff-marks and some cracks in the spine, but is otherwise very good..

      Herman Demen, Colln 1678 - 3 copperplate engravings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; Colln, Herman Demen; 1678. 13 cm. Gathered in 12s. Presumably the 2nd edition, with changes made in pagination from the edition of 1675. This 1678 example paged thus, [20], 564, 93. *11, A12 - Z12, Aa6; a12 - d12. Page 564 misnumbered by the printer as 464. A slight yawn between the front endpage and the title page, combined with an apparently missing leaf in the collation of the preliminaries suggests that a frontis or added engraved title page may be missing.

        An Account of the Digging Up of the Quarters of William Stayley...

      1678. The Last Decapitated Head Displayed On London Bridge [Broadside]. Stayley, William. An Account of the Digging Up of the Quarters of William Stayley, Lately Executed for High Treason, For That His Relations Abused the Kings Mercy. Imprimatur Novemb 30. 1678. William Scroggs. London: Printed for Robert Pawlet at the Sign of the Bible in Chancery-Lance [sic], near Fleet-street. 1678. 11-1/2" x 16" broadside. Light toning, faint vertical and horizontal fold lines, 4-1/2" section excised from foot of left margin, old tear professionally repaired with no loss of printed surface. A well-preserved copy. * William Staley (or Stayley) was one of the victims of the Popish Plot, one of the cruelest hoaxes in British history and the inspiration for a wave of anti-Catholic violence. It was the invention of Titus Oates, an Anglican clergyman, and his friend, Dr. Israel Tonge, a cleric and passionate anti-Catholic. They pretended to have discovered a Jesuit plot to assassinate the King, massacre Protestants, and set James, Duke of York, the King's Catholic brother, on the throne. Convicted as a conspirator, Staley was executed and quartered in 1678. "Instead of his quarters being set upon the city gates the king allowed them to be delivered to his relatives. Mass was said over his remains and a 'grand' funeral was arranged from his father's house on 29 November, before his burial in St Paul's, Covent Garden. This incensed the government so much that the coroner ordered the body to be dug up and delivered to the sheriff to be set upon the city gates" [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]. William Stayley's head has a small place in London's history; it was the last to be displayed on London Bridge. English Short-Title Catalogue R211806.
