        De antiquis verisque regni Sveciæ insignibus, liber singularis.

      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.

         Leerzaame zinnebeelden, ... Tweede druk. Haarlem, Jan Bosch, 1757. With engraved frontispiece and 50 beautifully engraved emblems in text. With: (2) SPINNIKER, Adriaan. Vervolg der Leerzaame zinnenbeelden, Spiegel der boetvaardigheid en genade en eenige stichtelyke gezangen. Haarlem, Jan Bosch, 1758. With same engraved frontispiece (with revisions), 30 engraved emblems in text and 4 engraved emblems on plates with letterpress text. 2 volumes bound as 1. 4to. Contemporary gold-tooled, tanned sheepskin. .

      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. Otherwise complete and clean. 3 copperplate engravings are included in the pagination. Bound in stippled brown leather, appearing to be a mid to late 1700's rebinding. Leather over spine rubbed with mild nicking at spine ends and a small open tear near the tail. Spine unlettered. Speckled paint/ink decorated endsheets; all edges gilt, but dimmed. Mild worm traces to the last two leaves and pastedown. Prior ownership to bottom edge of rear endpage. Rare in institutional ownership and in the marketplace; only one 17th Century copy located In institutional hands, an example in silver binding of the 1675 edition at the Smithsonian. Generally VG though could be improved with minimal professional restoration. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

        The Ornithology of Francis Willughby in three Books. Wherein All the Birds hitherto known, being reduced into a Method suitable to their Natures, are accurately described. The Descriptions illustrated by most elegant Figures, nearly resembling the live Birds . To which are added, three considerable Discourses, I. Of the Art of Fowling . II. Of the Ordering of Singing Birds. III. Of Falconry. By John Ray .

      London, John Martyn for the Royal Society, 1678 - Folio (358 x 228 mm), pp [xii] 441 [6] 7, title in red and black, 2 letterpress tables between pp 54 and 55 and 172 and 173, and 80 engraved plates; several gatherings with wormholes on blank corners, no text affected, a very crisp, unpressed copy in contemporary English speckled calf, old repairs to joints on upper portion of spine. £5500First English edition of the first modern ornithology, and 'one of the most important treatises on ornithology of all time' (Wood). It was translated and adapted from the Latin text of 1676 by John Ray, who added three additional plates and the three discourses on fowling, song birds, and falconry at the end.This work, begun jointly by Willughby and Ray and completed by Ray after the former's death in 1672, revolutionised ornithological taxonomy by organising species according to their physical characteristics. 'An important feature of the book was to be the engraved figures of birds, the cost being contributed by Willughby's widow . The Ornithologia, dated on the titlepage 1676 and carrying the arms of the Royal Society, if regarded only as a piece of book production, is magnificent. With its historical importance added it becomes one of the fairest monuments that mark the progress of scientific natural history' (Keynes p 54). As Keynes notes, the Latin edition was largely the work of Ray, as Willughby had died in 1672 and had left only rough field notes towards his ornithology. Ray effectively wrote the entire work, utilising not only Willughby's material but that of himself and other naturalists, and he provided the taxonomic system.The plates, numbered I-LXXVII, are signed by F. H. van Hove (XII, XXII, XLV), W. Faithorne (XXXVIII, XLIII) and W. Sherwin (XLVIII); the others are unsigned.Provenance: purchase note on front pastedown: '1714. Pr. 0: 12:6 Auct.

Schöner, früher und unbekannter Gelehrtenbrief an seinen Kollegen Günther Christoph Schelhammer (1649-1716) in Jena, der erst im Vorjahr bei G. W. Wedel promoviert wurde: "Nobilissime, excellentissime atque experientissime Domine D.!

Franck war mehrmals Dekan der medizinischen Fakultät, 1678 Rektor und 1686 Prorektor. Aufgrund des Pfälzischen Erbfolgekrieges verließ er 1688 Heidelberg und übersiedelte nach Frankfurt. Hier erhielt er 1689 einen Ruf als Professor der Medizin nach Wittenberg, wo er 1691 Rektor wurde. Nachdem er den sächsischen Kurfürsten 1693 auf dessen Reichsfeldzug nach Frankreich begleitet und mehrere Angebote an andere Höfe abgelehnt hatte, folgte er 1694 einer Berufung als Leibarzt der Familie des dänischen Königs Christian V.

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.14-15 - - Gamba 825 "Prima e rara ed."

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.

As also, how to find the area, or content thereof, with the manner of protracting, reducing, and dividing the same; and also how to inclose a mannor lying in a common field, with the drawing of a perfect draught or map thereof, and how to deck and beautifie the same. And likewise how to convey water from any spring-head, to any appointed place. The second, shewing how to take the ground-plot of any city or corporation: as also the mensuration of roads, highways, and rivers, with the manner of making a map of any county or Kingdom. The like never before extant

      London, printed by W. Godbid, for Christopher Hassey, at the Flower de Luce in Little-Britain, 1678. Two parts in one vol., 8vo., (12) + 292pp., with 12 engraved plates (of which 11 are folded), many text figures, contemporary panelled calf with raised bands and blind lines, endpapers appropriately renewed. A fine copy. First edition: scarce. Wing H.2521. John Holwell (1649-1686), astrologer and mathematician (in A sure guide> he describes himself as simply 'Philomath'), is known for several astrological publications of which his major work was Catastrophe mundi> (1682). Towards the end of his life it is thought that James II's government sent him to America in 1685 to survey and map New York. It was there that he died having been refused permission to return to England owing to suggestions that he had been implicated in the Monmouth business. 'When he published his Catastrophe> in 1682 he was living on the east side of Spitalfields, near the Red Lion, by Dorset Street, and he advertised his services and tuition there in ?'astronomy, navigation, dyalling, surveying, geography, perspective, and gunnery?'. He achieved considerable prominence in these less febrile activities, especially in surveying. In 1678 he published A Sure Guide to the Practical Surveyor>, dedicated to John Wildman, politician and one-time leveller, which gave detailed instructions on surveying land, roads, and rivers. He used the instruments of Walter Hayes, the foremost instrument maker of the time. Earlier, he had been one of the team working with John Ogilby on his pioneering surveys of English roads, and he used some of this material in his book. In pressing his credentials as a surveyor he confidently asserted that he had ?'the most experience of any man in England?'.' [Bernard Capp in ODNB] Among the folding plates in A sure guide> is an interesting map or plan of the road from London to Hornsey via Highgate, Islington and Holloway, marking such features along the way as Can[on]bury House, Iack Strause Castle (i.e. Jack Straw's Castle), Hullington and Kentish Town.

        Memoires de Hollande EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1678. Fine. Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1678, In 12 (10x15,5cm), (8) 456pp., relié. - First Edition, very rare, long attributed to Madame de La Fayette, published the year of The Princess of Cleves, then Courtilz de Sandras and even Pierre Daniel Huet. Full morocco late nineteenth signed Bellevallée glossy red old. Back to nerves Jansenist. Wide frieze gilded interior. Date tail. Very nice copy, well established, large margins, and unwashed. Unlike The Princess of Cleves, or The Princess of Montpensier, the Memoirs of Holland paper is not a new historical character, but displays as a novel of manners which utiise modern names. The work describes, through the love of a Jewish and a Lusignan, life in the Netherlands in the mid seventeenth century; this is one of the only novels daring to face reality as it is and the work deserves to be distinguished in the invention of French fiction as such. The book interested the history and topography of the Netherlands. It should be noted that this work was in the biggest amateur libraries of the nineteenth century (Lignerolles Rochebilière, Rothschild Techener, etc.). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, très rare, longtemps attribuée à Madame de La Fayette, et publiée l'année de La princesse de Clèves, puis à Courtilz de Sandras et même à Pierre Daniel Huet. Reliure en plein maroquin fin XIXe signé Bellevallée glacé vieux rouge. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Large frise dorée intérieure. Date en queue. Très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi, grand de marges, et non lavé. A l'inverse de La princesse de Clèves, ou de La princesse de Montpensier, les Memoires de Hollande n'est pas une nouvelle à caractère historique, mais s'affiche comme un roman de moeurs qui utiise des prénoms modernes. L'oeuvre décrit, à travers les amours d'une juive et d'un Lusignan, la vie aux Pays-bas vers le milieu du XVIIe siècle ; c'est un des seuls romans osant affronter la réalité telle qu'elle est et l'oeuvre mérite d'être distinguée dans l'invention de la littérature romanesque française à ce titre. Le livre intéresse l'histoire et la topographie des Pays-bas. Il est à remarquer que cette oeuvre se trouvait dans les plus grandes bibliothèques d'amateurs du XIXe siècle (Lignerolles, Rochebilière, Rothschild, Téchener, etc.)
