Broadside; Stayley, William
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 Bio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Édition originale, rare.Reliure en plein veau blond glacé XVIIIe. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Fente en tête au mors supérieur. Deux coins émoussés. Légers frottements. Nom d'un possesseur biffé en page de titre. Note ancienne en page de garde à la plume. Bel exemplaire, bien relié.Ces Lettres paraissent peu après la première édition de La Princesse de Clèves (1678), et elles sont d'une importance cruciale pour l'histoire des Belles-Lettres. Valincourt commence par retracer l'histoire de l'oeuvre, qui était bien connue avant d'être publiée. Il en fait un compte-rendu détaillé, suivant la nouvelle pas à pas, à l'aide de considérations historiques et critiques. Si l'ouvrage de Valincourt est assez laborieux, paraphrasant la nouvelle à l'aide d'un postulat réaliste et interrogeant les possibilités psychologiques, stylistiques et narratives, il n'en reste pas moins qu'on dispose de peu de document de ce genre : un témoignage contemporain sur un livre emblématique de la littérature française. *** [English translation available upon request.

Amsterdam - Gerard van Keulen, ca. 1725
1678. 'Amstelodami veteris et novissimi delineatio per Jacobum de la Feuille.' Kopergravure voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1678 door Johannes de Ram, hier in een uitgave van Gerard van Keulen rond 1725. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48 x 56 cm. Graveur en uitgever Johannes de Ram (1648-1693) kopieerde regelmatig werk van anderen. Voor het kaartbeeld nam hij een 15 jaar oude kaart van Nicolaes Visscher als voorbeeld. Het stadsprofiel, de decoraties in de linker- en rechterbenedenhoek en het idee van de keizerskroon (boven het stadswapen) en stadszegel nam hij over van een kaart van concurrent Frederik de Wit. De Ram voegde zelf een paar engeltjes toe. Na de eerste uitgave werd het kaartbeeld geactualiseerd. Onder andere werd de tuin achter het Besjeshuis aan de Amstel [tegenwoordig Hermitage Amsterdam] bijgegraveerd. Dat gebouw werd in 1683 opgeleverd en de tuin werd daarna aangelegd. De Weesperstraat blijkt aan beide zijden te zijn bebouwd en de Plantage kent zijn tuinenstructuur. De eilanden Uilenburg en Marken zijn ook volgebouwd. Het gebied buiten de Singelgracht rond de meest noordelijk gelegen bolwerken Zeeburg en Leeuwenburg werd gedetailleerder gegraveerd. Ook zijn er wijzigingen aangebracht in de palenrijen in het IJ. Ze werden bovendien van namen voorzien. Tussen de Rapenburgergracht en de Nieuwe Vaart zijn huizen en scheepswerven bijgetekend. Na de dood van Johannes de Ram in 1693 trouwde Jacob de la Feuille, die zelf tot zijn overlijden in 1719 de zaak voortzette, met De Rams weduwe. Hij gaf de kaart opnieuw uit en verving daarbij de naam van De Ram in de titels … [Click Below for Full Description]

Binding worn with some insect damage, binding loosening from book block but still holding, front pastedown detached and tatty, first few signatures loosening and close to detaching, shaken, some worming. Still an acceptable, unrestored copy. First edition. The handbook prints the original Latin of the law books (in black letter, as customary), together with a simplified English translation (in Roman font), in order to simplify the law for ordinary citizens and students.

This particular guide seems to have proved popular, undergoing six editions by 1725. With interesting marks of contemporary ownership: the loose front pastedown with an ornate signature dated 1680, the same signature repeated twice with a new date of 18 January 1693, alongside a pen trial of numbers and Latin words; the same Latin words repeated to the rear pastedown; a neater form of the ornate signature to p. 303; a further different neat early ownership signature to the title page.

SPINNIKER, Adriaan.
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.

TTRBR1 1678 Printed by Uri Fayvesh/Jekuthiel ben Isaac Blitz LANGUAGE: YIDDISH VG CONDITION, FINE COPY! IN CLOTH COVERS FINE COPY OF THE FIRST YIDDISH EDITION OF THE BIBLE THE FIRST TWO Yiddish translations of the complete Old Testament appeared almost simultaneously in Amsterdam in 1678 - 1679. Yiddish translations and glossaries of parts of the Hebrew Bible had occupied an important place in Yiddish publishing from its beginnings in the first half of the sixteenth century. The earlier texts only covered those sections of the Old Testament which are part of the liturgy: the Torah (Pentateuch), the haftarot (selected portions of the Prophets and the hagiographer which are read in synagogue after the weekly portions of the Torah), the five megillot ('Scrolls', i. e., Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther), and Psalms. Uri Fayvesh Halevi, the first publisher to start printing a complete Yiddish Old Testament, had been influenced by the example of Sephardi Jews and Christians because they possessed good translations. In Amsterdam, where contacts between Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardim and Christians were more extensive than elsewhere, he became aware of the fact that others had a better knowledge of 'their' Bible than they themselves had. The influence of the official Dutch Bible translation, the Statenvertaling, was particularly important. Its first edition had appeared in 1637 and within decades it had acquired great authority and was a publishing success. Since there were many Yiddish speakers in Europe who were literate but did not understand the Hebrew ori … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erschien erstmals als `Thesaurus Philo-Politicus . Politisches Schätzkästlein` 1623 in Frankfurt bei E. Kieser. Nach dessen Tod erwarb Paul Fürst die Platten und gab das Werk ab 1638 unter dem obigen Titel und eingeteilt in acht `Centurien` mit je 100 Kupfern erneut heraus. Das Werk des Barockdichters Daniel Meisner (1585-1625) gehört zu den großartigsten Kupferstich- und Emblembüchern seiner Zeit. Alle Tafeln sind nicht nur mit einem Motto und Sinnsprüchen in lateinischer und deutscher Sprache sowie einer allegorisch-emblematischen Szene ausgestattet, sondern jeweils auch einer europäischen Stadt gewidmet, die in einer Vedute im Hintergrund abgebildet wurde. Diese Stadtveduten gehören zu den zuverlässigsten Quellen als realistische Darstellungen der Topographie vom Anfang des 17. Jahrhunderts. Jede Zinne, jeder Turm, jedes Mauer- oder Fachwerkhaus ist an seiner individuellen Konstruktionsweise erkennbar und wiedererkennbar, ebenso die die Städte umgebenden Landschaften mit Bergen und Felsen, Burgen und Schlössern, Flüssen und Seen etc. Als Stecher zeichnen sich Matthäus Merian, Sebastian Franck und G.
