Very light age-toning, particularly at outer edges, occasional minor foxing and soiling. A very good copy. In a cloth clamshell box, leather label. A fine gathering in a single volume of the early English translations of Tavernier's renowned and informative accounts of his travels in Asia. Lach refers to the author as "one of the most celebrated travelers of the seventeenth century and one of its greatest authorities on the routes of Eastern travel and on the diamond mines of India." The son of a Parisian geographer, Tavernier completed six overland journeys to Turkey, Persia, and India between 1631 and 1668. "In 1676-77 at Paris, Tavernier published in two volumes LES SIX VOYAGES, one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. The first volume is centered on Turkey and Persia; the second on India, Ceylon, and the East Indies. By 1712 this work was reprinted at least six times in French, three times in English, and one time each in German, Dutch, and Italian" - Lach. THE SIX VOYAGES. records Tavernier's extensive travels through India, Ceylon, Indonesia, and Persia. Lach writes that the VOYAGES, "are rich in materials on routes, traveling conditions, trading practices, the mines of Golconda [in India], and the Dutch and English activities in the East. While Tavernier's contemporaries debated the authenticity of the VOYAGES, modern scholars agree that they constitute a valuable source for Indian history during the years from 1640 to 1667, or for almost a generation." The twenty-four plates include numerous engravings of coins and gems, reflecting the author's commercial activities, as well as images of town plans and scenes of local color. Two of the finely engraved plates provide examples of Arabic script. The second work, A COLLECTION OF SEVERAL RELATIONS & TREATISES SINGULAR AND CURIOUS, is the English translation of Tavernier's 1679 supplement to the original account of his six voyages. Composed of five separate parts based on the author's own observations and reports from other travellers, these accounts include descriptions of Japan (and Christian persecution there); French negotiations in Persia and India following the establishment of Colbert's East India Company; the kingdom of Tongking (now the northern part of Vietnam); the author's own observations on commerce in the East Indies; and Tavernier's highly critical remarks on "how the Hollanders manage their affairs in Asia." The two maps (on one folding leaf) are of Tonking and Japan; all eight plates show scenes of Tongking, including two related to funerary customs, one of pagodas, and one with fine detail of the costumes of the court. A fine set of the early English translations of Tavernier's celebrated and authoritative account of the East Indies. COX pp.275-76. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE III, Book 1, pp.416-18.

      FIRST EDITION OF ELEVEN OF ANTHONY VAN LEEUWENHOEK'S SEMINAL "MICROSCOPICAL OBSERVATIONS" (which took the form of letters, some quite lengthy) to the Philosophical Transactions. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. As such, the Phil Trans established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review that have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since. Works in every field of science are present. Note that this is the entire original volume and not one of the later 'abridged' volumes. The Leeuwenhoek is accompanied by important papers by Keill, Picolo [Piccolo], Leeuwenhoek, and Hauksbee. Leeuwenhoek's most important discoveries are contained in these celebrated letters to henry Oldenburg, the Society's secretary. Here he communicates his epoch-making experiments with the microscope, revealing to his contemporaries a previously unknown world -- the world of microorganisms. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition, first issue of Derham's report of the first accurate measurement of the speed of sound in air. The Phil Trans is the oldest continuously published journal of an academy of science. The English Natural Philosopher William Derham's experiment, produced the earliest, reasonably accurate estimate of the speed of sound by employing his 16-foot long telescope (also used when measuring the velocity of sound). "Derham utilized guns fired from various church towers and observed the flashes from distances up to 20.1 km (12.5 miles)," observed their firing by placing his telescope "atop of the tower of St. Laurence's Church, and timed the intervals with a pendulym bearing half seconds" (Suckerwar, Handbook of the Speed of Sound, 265). Derham's accuracy was affirmed by Newton. ALSO INCLUDED: John Keill's paper "On the Laws of Centripedal Forces" communicating a theorem developed by Newton. More importantly, however, wading in to the Leibniz v. Newton debate on the discovery of the new calculus, Keill would level the charge that Leibniz made only cosmetic changes to Newton's calculus theorems before presenting them as his own. Though the disagreement raged, Keill greatly upped the anti with his publication of this paper. ALSO iNCLUDED: The first English edition of Prancisco Piccolo and Eusebio Francisco Kino's momentous map of California "refutating the concept of an insular California. This map and its accompanying letters are "usually been considered the first printed account of California, and it certainly was the first to obtain any circulation. They were the first "successful attempt of the famous Society of Jesus (Jesuits) to reduce to some sort of civilization the barbarians of the peninsula and maintain its extablishments in that inhospitable country must always be considered as one of its chief claims to glory... "Piccolo provides a detailed report of the first five years of the Jesuit missions in California and a request promoting support for their continuation by their legal representative" (Sloan Rare Books). (See also Barrett, Baja California 4303; Graff 3279; Howell 50; California 191; Mathes, Historiography of the Californias, #27). ALSO INCLUDED: 17 papers by Francis Hauksbee including "An account of an experiment touching the different densities of air from the greatest natural heat to the greatest natural cold in this climate," Hauksbee's discovery of Charles' law of gases which states that, for a given mass of gas at a constant pressure, the volume of the gas is proportional to its temperature.

"Derham utilized guns fired from various church towers and observed the flashes from distances up to 20.1 km (12.5 miles)," observed their firing by placing his telescope "atop of the tower of St. Laurence's Church, and timed the intervals with a pendulym bearing half seconds" (Suckerwar, Handbook of the Speed of Sound, 265). Derham's accuracy was affirmed by Newton. CONDITION & DETAILS: In: Philosophical Transactions.

        Nova et accurata Tartariae Europae sue Minoris et in specie Crimeae

      Augsburg. Map. Copperplate engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19.5 x 22.75". This unique and rare map centers on the Black Sea, showing the surrounding coastal areas of Southern Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland. The confluence of cultures in this region is reflected in the labeling of the Black Sea in seven different languages: Latin, French, Turkish, Russian, Polish, Greek, and German. The blank expanse of the sea, in which these titles are set, sets off the water from the amply detailed land around it and makes it a visual focal point. In the surrounding land, subtle hand coloring helps to define borders and differentiate among the coastal regions. The lower left corner of the map contains a decorative title cartouche depicts some of the variety of cultures to whom the Black Sea is a significant economic resource. This map appeared in Matthaus Seutter's "Atlas novus sive tabulae geographicae totius orbis." It is in very good condition and is overall bright. Minor stains in upper right quadrant of the map. Narrow margins. Matthaus Seutter the Elder (1678-1757) was an engraver, globe maker and map publisher based in Augsburg. He apprenticed with J.B. Homann in Nuremberg and, in fact, this map was likely modeled on Homann's 1725 precedent. Seutter was awarded the title of Imperial Geographer by Karl VI in 1731.

      London:: Richard Royston,, 1678.. First Edition. Folio, pp. (22), 899, (1, blank), 84 pp. Title-page printed in red and black, engraved title by White after Caespers depicts the debate between theists (represented by Pythagoras, Aristotle and Socrates) and atheists (represented by Anaximander, Strato and Epicurus), with a label confusion above the Atheists and a label Victory above the Theists. Bound with: A DISCOURSE CONCERNING THE TRUE NOTION OF THE LORD'S SUPPER, to which are added two sermons I John Chap. 2. Ver. 3,4. I Corinth. 15.57. by R. Cudworth. London: Royston, 1676. pp. [ii], 36. (Wing C7468). The two works bound in contemporary folio, rebacked at an early date, worn, spine chipped, some foxing and minor soiling, generally a good sound copy. 19th century ownership signature on the edge of the title-page. Nice clean wide margins. All published. Part two was intended to be an attack against Calvinism, while the third part was an exposition of a theory of free will. Only the first volume however was ever published, and although Cudworth's biographer, Thomas Birch, writing in 1743, was able fully to describe them, neither part II nor Part III now exists in manuscript. Wing C7471; ESTC r31350 Ralph Cudworth (the Younger, 1617-1688), the most systematic metaphysician of the Cambridge Platonist School.... important in understanding the background of Newton and the early Newtonians. " DSB III, 492. "In 1678 Cudworth was installed as a prebendary at Gloucester and, in the same year, this major and massive work ... was published. It seems to have been ready for some time since it contains an imprimatur dated 29 May 1671. Thomas Birch (Birch, 20) states that when it appeared some courtiers attempted to discredit Cudworth and it may be that some such opposition was the reason for the delay in publishing. The present work is primarily a critique of what Cudworth took to be the two principal forms of atheism -materialism and hylozoism. The materialist Cudworth had especially in mind is Thomas Hobbes. Cudworth attempts to show that Hobbes had revived the doctrines of Protagoras and is therefore subject to the criticisms which Plato had deployed againt Protagoras in the Theaetetus. Cudworth argued that the only real source of knowledge is the Christian religion. Religious truth was embodied in three great principles: the reality of the supreme Divine intelligence and the spiritual world which that intelligence has created, the eternal reality of moral ideas, and the reality of moral freedom and responsibility. see J.A.

Rara primera edición de esta suerte de biografía ilustrada dedicada a la historia de la condesa Matilda (1046-1115), conocida como la Gran Condesa. Heredera de gran parte de Italia central (Lombardía, Emilia-Romaña y la Toscana), jugó un papel determinante en la querella de las investiduras entre el emperador Enrique IV y el papa Gregorio VII. El primero fue humillado en la fortaleza de Canossa, centro del vasto territorio dominado por esta influyente mujer. La condesa dejó todos sus territorios al papa, un legado que debe situarse en el origen del poder del papado en la época. Dal Pozzo intenta en estas páginas desmentir algunos de los rumores que circulaban sobre ella y, a la vez, honrar a Alberico Cybo Malaspina, dedicatario de la obra, mediante un detallado relato de su vida e historia familiar.

        "A collection of English proverbs digested into a convenient method for the speedy finding any one upon occasion; with short annotations. Whereunto are added local proverbs with their explications, old proverbial rhythmes, less known ore exotick proverbial sentances, and Scotish proverbs. The second edition, enlarged by the addition of many hundred English, and an appendix of Hebrew proverbs, with annotations and parallels."

      Cambridge: 1678, "printed by John Hays, prin. Cambridge: 1678. "printed by John Hays, printer to the University, for W. Morden". "12mo, pp. [8], 414 plus leaf of Morden ads; full contemporary calf, red morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; joints slightly rubbed, title-p. thumb-soiled, and a few old pencil and ink annotations on rear endpaper and flyleaf; overall a very good copy. First published in 1670, this book is still regarded as invaluable for the study of dialect and folklore. Ray (1627-1704) primarily known as a botanist and zoologist who was the first to lay down the correct principles of classification in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, attempted a similar application with proverbial literature. Though he never developed an ordered system that could be applied to literary studies, he has preserved nonetheless a unique and entertaining storehouse of lore, literature and wisdom. Wing R-387."

"... the Spanishes Liederspiel... treated Geibel's translations... in quasi- dramatic form for vocal quartet, duet or solo with piano accompaniment... The poems later inspired Wolf and the genre Brahms. The style is novel; there are syncopations in the accompaniment and bold declamation in the voice, with free-ranging melodies, chromatic harmonies and independent piano parts. All this is often expressly related to the sense of the words." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 151.
