        Sammelband of 23 English Almanacs for the year 1678, bound by Samuel Mearne

      London & Cambridge: [Various printers], 1678. FIRST EDITIONS. Contemporary gilt-panelled red morocco, bound in the workshop of SAMUEL MEARNE (Royal Binder), crowned monogram of Charles II in each corner, spine gilt, horizontal vellum divider strips between each almanac. Top of spine rubbed, bottom damaged, cover corners and outer ends of raised bands worn; some toning, soiling, and minor stains. Preserved in a fitted green linen protective case. Octavo. Most almanacs printed in red and black, some with astrological text diagrams and woodcuts ALMANACS FROM THE "GLORIOUS REVOLUTION" -- an imposing volume of 23 Almanacs from the Year 1678, bound in the workshop of Samuel Mearne, Royal bookbinder to Charles II. Our binding is nearly identical to the 1683 Sammelband of Almanacs that is reproduced in the Folger's Fine and Historic Bookbindings catalogue (6:12). THIS VOLUME REPRESENTS NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THE RECORDED ALMANAC EDITIONS PRINTED IN ENGLAND FOR THE YEAR 1678, a signal year in British history in which Reports of a 'Popish Plot' circulated widely throughout the kingdom. Public fears of Catholic influence had surfaced during the reign of Charles II (reigned 1660-1685), when it became known that James, then known as the Duke of York, was a Catholic. * This huge conglomeration of early English almanacs is of great significance to scholars of the history of astronomy, astrology, medicine, politics, society, and literature. Astrology was the most systematic attempt to explain natural phenomena until the modern scientific revolution. The science of astrology was divided into two parts: natural (i.e. planetary influences on medicine and agriculture) and judicial (interpreting planetary influences in order to make predictions, usually political). The revival of English astrology is closely linked with the renaissance of mathematics. Astrologers were bringing to a wide public the ideas of the most advanced modern astonomers, in a popular and elementary form. * Almanacs sought to fill many roles, and contained data on fairs, weights and measures, postal services, tables of the kings, calendars (which were used to date fairs, law days and legal documents), weather forecasts, astronomical information relating to farming (with the best times to plow, sow, fell timber, etc.), astrological data supplied on medical problems (indicating proper times for surgery, blood-letting, etc.). Indeed, the "Zodiacal Man" was probably the ONLY work of reference available to a vast number of unqualified physicians. And finally, Almanacs contained an abundance of popular news, and popular literature, social comment, political speculation, and cheap sensationalism. It is well known that the first truly "popular" forms of literature were issued in Almanacs, such as these. * The present set -- which dates from the pivotal year of 1678 -- is exceptional in that it brilliantly documents the use of the Almanac as a vehicle of politics. In 1678 a clergyman named Titus Oates spread rumours of a ' Popish Plot' to kill Charles and place James on the throne. The public panic caused by this groundless assertion led to the ' Exclusion Bill' crisis of 1678-1681. The Exclusion Bill was a parliamentary Bill aimed at excluding James from the line of succession in favour of Charles II's illegitimate son, the Duke of Monmouth. It was passed by the House of Commons, thanks to the votes of the Whigs, in 1679 but it failed to pass through the House of Lords. * After the end of the Puritan Commonwealth, the restored king of England, Charles II married Mary, the daughter of his younger brother the Duke of York, to William in 1677. When Charles II died childless, the crown passed to the Duke, now James II. James was reported to be Catholic, and his wife certainly was. Anti-Catholicism was at a zenith, and members of the dissenting religions (the various Protestant churches, including the Puritans (modern Presbyterians), Independents (modern day Baptists), and Quakers, among many others had rebelled against a potential Catholic conversion previously. However, James II was tolerated because of his heir: Mary. She was Protestant, as was her husband. * On April 11, 1677 French troops defeated Prince William III; the year 1678 is further significant in that it marks the date of publication of John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress" (Part One) in which Christian follows the straight and narrow path to heaven; in this year Huygens proposed his wave theory of light.

[23] (of [24]) leaves; lacks A8 [A2197]. * BINDING: The binding can be confidently attributed to Samuel Mearne, the Royal Binder to Charles II: the crowned monogram C was Royal property, and moreover the massed tooling surrounding the inner panel is composed of unmistakable tools that appear on numerous Mearne bindings (such as BL 7f13 which is number 20 in Howard Nixon's "English Restoration Bookbindings"). We are unable to explain why such a huge number of 1678 Almanacs were ordered to be bound in one volume by the Royal Binder; the person who commissioned the binding was obviously closely associated with the court of Charles II. -- Subsequently in the library of the Occult collector Dianel Ruzo. * LITERATURE: See especially Bernard Capp, English Almanacs 1500-1800: Astrology and the Popular Press (Cornell, 1979). See also: William E. Burns, "Astrology and Politics in Seventeenth-Century England: James II and the Almanac Men" (in: The Seventeenth Century, Autumn 2005, 20:2).

        A New Map of Africa from the Latest Observations.

      Double page engraved map, 500mm x 580mm (24" x 20"), hand colored in outline, title cartouche in lower left corner. Scattered short tears and chips in margins, some minor browning and offsetting, paper a little brittle; still attractive with a crisp and bright image. John Senex (1678-1740) was a well-respected English cartographer that was named geographer to Queen Anne. Around 1719 he published a small book of undecorated maps, but a couple of years later he went upscale and produced a large set of maps of various parts of the world in 1721. This is a somewhat scarce attractive map of the African continent, which includes a decorative cartouche that shows the pyramids, a Moor brandishing a sword, and a shield mounted by a dragon. The map has good detail, even of the interior, for the period, and according to the title, is based on the latest observations. Norwich 76. Van De Gohm 142.

        LETTERA INTORNO ALL'INVENZIONE DEGLI OCCHIALI. Scritta da Francesco Redi all'Illustrissimo Signor Paolo Falconieri.

      Per Francesco Onofri Stampatore Granducale 1678 Prima edizione. Cm.25,4x18,4. Pg.14 + 2 bianche. Legatura in cartoncino rigido marmorizzato. Allo specchio anteriore tassello in pelle bleu con il titolo dell'opera impresso in oro. Al frontespizio incisione calcografica con stemma della Crusca e il relativo motto "Il più bel fior ne coglie". All'inizio del testo stemma mediceo su rame. Esemplare di buon sapore. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia).

      Amstelodami: Apud Danielem Elzevirium, 1678. Edited by J. F. Gronovius n. Hardcover. As Good as 19th Century Classical French Bindings Get. 159 x 102 mm (6 1/4 x 4"). 1 p.l., 788 pp. Edited by J. F. Gronovius. ESPECIALLY ANIMATED AND ESPECIALLY BEAUTIFUL MID-19TH CENTURY RETROSPECTIVE SCARLET MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT IN THE "FANFARE" STYLE, BY CAPÉ (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers elaborately gilt in a fanfare design with interlacing strapwork emanating from a central oval, the background profusely tooled with flowers, curling vines, circlets, and dots; raised bands, spine compartments gilt in a similar style, DARK GREEN MOROCCO DOUBLURES with intricate dentelle frame, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt. Woodcut headpiece, initials, and tailpieces, engraved allegorical title page showing the goddess Roma with Romulus and Remus. Verso of front free endpaper with round bookplate of James Toovey printed in gilt with grapevines, the initials "I T" and the motto "Inter folia fructus" (see below). Willems 1548; Rahir 1680. A couple of tiny rust spots, but A SUPERB COPY, clean and fresh internally, and THE LOVELY BINDING UNUSUALLY LUSTROUS AND ENTIRELY UNWORN. This is an exceptionally well-preserved specimen of classical Parisian bookbinding at its finest, from the collection of a man known equally for his love of beautiful bindings and for his insistence on perfect condition. Capé (d. 1867) was one of the most distinguished binders in France in the middle years of the 19th century, and he was especially well known for the delicacy of his work, which was obviously necessary in the present case. He was the binder to the Empress Eugenie, and Béraldi calls him "the Bozérian of the second Empire." His work has always been highly sought after, and it resides in all of the great collections where bindings are considered important holdings. This volume contains all of Livy in one book, printed in double columns, and is surprisingly legible, despite its small typeface. Called by Dibdin "a masterpiece of printing," it is the fifth of a total of six publications of Livy by the Elzeviers, and the only one designed for a single volume, rather than three. The present version was prepared by the great scholar Johann Friedrich Gronov (1611-71), who, in Sandys' words, produced "editions [that] mark an epoch in the study of Livy, of both the Senecas, and of Tacitus and Gellius." Among London booksellers in the second half of the 19th century, James Toovey (1814-93) was second only to Bernard Quaritch. Henry Huth, a most discriminating collector, was a good client. In "The Book-Hunter in London," William Roberts notes that Toovey was considered "very particularly the great authority on bindings," and he made enough money as a bookseller to spend the last decade of his life amassing a private library of notable books in notable bindings.

      Paris, G. Quinet, 1678.. In-12, pleine basane de l'epoque, dos a nerfs orne (decor passe, rel. leg. frottee), 183, (1) p. Deuxieme edition. Si les representations du Cid obtinrent un succes public sans precedent, les critiques fuserent egalement : Scudery, avec ses 'Observations sur le Cid' attaqua la piece pour ses irregularites et son manque de bienseance et Richelieu intervint pour demander a l'Academie francaise de rendre un arbitrage. Elabores par Chapelain aide de Conrart, 'Les sentiments de l'Academie' tranchaient : on y fait l'eloge de Corneille tout en donnant raison a ses ennemis quant a la question des regles. Le "parti des doctes" l'emportait, insistant sur le mepris que Corneille avait temoigne pour les preceptes d'Aristote. Ulcere, Corneille garda le silence durant plus de deux ans.
