He is, perhaps, best remembered for his monumental work "A Display of Heraldry" which was first published in London in 1610. Born in 1565 (some date 1550) in the county of Herefordshire. This part of England is very close to the border with Wales and Guillim's ancestors were probably of Welsh extraction. He was educated at Brasenose College in Oxford University. In 1575 a John Guillim of Minsterworth married Frances Dennis, and raised a family of one boy, John, and three girls, Margaret, Frances, and Priscilla - unreliable source? The first record of his involvement with heraldry is the Earl Marshal's warrant, dated 23 February 1604, permitting him to bear the tabard of the Portsmouth Pursuivant Extraordinary. From Michaelmas 1613, he was receiving a salary from the College of Arms, though his official appointment as Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms in Ordinary was not made until 1618. The Display of Heraldry was written around 1610 and reprinted as early as 1611. There were seven further editions of the book following Guillim's death, with the last one being printed in 1724. Some historians have suggested that the original author of the Display of Heraldry was a clergyman named John Barkham who was unwilling to have the work published in his own name. Guillim's death is recorded as having occurred on 7 May 1621, probably at Minsterworth, although there is no record of his place of burial. Sir Ilay Campbell of Succoth (1734 - 1823) was a Scottish judge, was appointed Solicitor General for Scotland in 1783 and Lord Advocate in 1784. He became Member of Parliament for Glasgow Burghs in the same year. He was Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice General from 1789 to 1808. In 1808, he was created a baronet. He also was Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow in 1799, and died in 1823 aged eighty-nine years. Source: Wikipedia

        Divers Desseins de figures

      1679. LE CLERC, Sebastien. Divers Desseins de Figures Dedies A Monsieur Colbert D'Ormoy. Engraved title and 29 numbered engraved plates. Square 8vo., 140 x 132 mm, bound in later French dark green morocco, geometric gilt-ruled design on covers 'a la Bozarien' ca. 1800. Paris: Langlois, [ca. 1679]. |~||~||~||~| First Edition, first impressions, of this petit artist's drawing manual. This "pedagogic" suite of 30 engraved plates of figures in motion was dedicated by Le Clerc to one of his noble pupils, the Marquis Jules-Armand Colbert d'Ormoy (1663-1704), the fourth son of Jean-Baptiste Colbert. Working under the influence of Callot, Le Clerc designed these illustrations with two depictions of the same figure on one engraved plate; one figure created in outline only, the same figure flushed out with contours and sculptural shading to create a more 3D character in motion. These little scenes of everyday life focus on the costumes of the French working classes during the middle of the seventeenth century. Sébastien Le Clerc the elder (1637-1714) was one of the greatest and most prolific illustrators in Baroque France, executing a wide range of important works under the patronage of Louis XIV. The engravings are in fine state with large margins. Binding with corners ever-so-slightly bumped, else a very fine copy. PROVENANCE: Marlborough Books, description laid-in, sold 1982; Peter A.

The E.S.T.C. dates this work to 1679, though the spine title here has 1680. In the text there is a reference to "the then New States-men in Sixty", and, in a contemporary hand, is a neat footnote "Clarendon &c". After the "Finis" on page 4 what looks like the same contemporary hand has written "Printed 1670". Robert Tell-Truth also published a "Letter to a member of Parliament in the North", c.1726. The front endpaper bears a small neat inscription, "James T. Bell, To E 29.11.09". Half leather and marbled boards. Gilt spine title. In very good condition. Copac lists no copies of this work. A very scarce item.

P. William Penn (1644-1726) famous English Quaker is one of the founding fathers of the United States and the only one among them to have single-handedly created a democratic constitution and ruled a huge territory, Pennsylvania, a century before 1776. This work is one of Penn's longer pamphlets which deals with the argument for religious liberty. It is a powerful exposition of the doctrine of pure tolerance and a protest against the enforcement of opinions as articles of faith.

        Coelum sephiroticum Hebraeorum, per portas intelligentiae, Moysi revelatas. .. medicinae, chymiae, astronomiae, astrologiae, botanicae, zoologiae KABBALIC INTERPRETATION OF THE UNIVERSE AND ITS CREATION

      Mainz: Ludovie Bourgeat, 1679 With large printer?'s device on title, 1 full page plate, 19 text engravings, and ornate woodcut head- and tailpieces. Recently bound in vellum using a an old Hebrew manuscript with a few obvious repairs; interior very clean with the occasional phrase underlined in pencil. First edition of this wonderful treatise on natural philosophy based upon an occult interpretation of the seven days of creation. According to Thorndike, this work purports ?"to derive new principles of medicine, chemistry, astronomy, astrology, botany, zoology, anthropology and other sciences from the most ancient Hebraic truth through the gates of intelligence revealed to Moses.?" Steeb (fl. 1672-1680) was influenced by the works of Pythagoras, Paracelsus, and Kircher, and Pico della Mirandola, and borrowed elements of Kabbalic thought for his interpretation of the universe and its creation. The author?'s interest in celestial spheres, the creation of the earth, and the synthesis of several branches of science, religion, and the occult necessitated the invention of an array of unusual pseudoscientific diagrams to elucidate the text of his ambitious treatise. These diagrams are mostly circular (with octagonal plate marks) and many of them incorporate beautiful celestial imagery into their programs in addition to Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and various astrological and alchemical symbols. One interesting observation is Steeb?'s perspective on salt, which has played a role in alchemy as the physical ?"body?" which survives death to reinaugurate new life. He remarks that ?"sal sit ultimum in corruptione, sed & primum in generatione?" (salt is the last in corruption and the first in generation). The author also makes reference to Atlantis and America in this work. A very fine copy of this unusual and highly creative treatise.

        De l'Excellence des hommes contre l'egalite des sexes.

      Paris, Antoine Dezallier, 1679.. In-12, plein veau de l'epoque, dos a nerfs guilloches or, orne de compartiments fleuronnes, tranches mouchetees rouges (mors leg. frottes), 329, (5) p. de privilege. Seconde edition officielle parue quatre ans apres l'originale. Le titre est pris par anti-phrase. "Si le titre pourrait faire croire que l'auteur de 'L'Egalite des deux sexes' se retracte, ce n'est qu'un approfondissement tres fort de sa premiere these. Les arguments, sur lesquels le sexe masculin pretend fonder cette pretendue excellence y sont bien exposes, mais c'est pour etre demolis chacun a leur tour" (G. Reynier, 'La femme au XVIIe', p. 240). "Malgre les precautions qu'il prend pour eviter la censure, l'auteur evoque nettement l'idee d'un pacte social entre le pouvoir et le peuple (...). Ainsi le feminisme de Poullain s'ouvre-t-il au probleme de l'inegalite sociale" (Albistur & Armogathe, 'Feminisme francais', p. 166). Sur la modernite et la radicalite du feminisme de cette oeuvre, cf. Timmermans, 'Acces des femmes a la culture', p. 776 sq. (Alcover, p 26, i. Gay, I, 798. Haag, VIII, 308).

Traces of his work are to be found in later grammarians and lexicographers. (NP Philoxenus 8). Cyrillus, 5th century AD. His Glosses were used by Hesychius, Photius and in the Suda. (NP Kyrillos 5 and 6). Charles Labbé, 1582-1657, was a parliamentary barrister of Paris, who published, with the help of J. Scaliger Glosses on Greek law (1607), and prepared an edition of the Glossaries of 'Cyril and Philoxenus', which was published after his death by Du Cange (1679). (Sandys 2,287). The first part of this work contains Greek-Latin glosses, the second Latin-Greek glosses, followed by emendations; This work was reprinted in London, 1817, etc. as an appendage to the new edition of Stephanus's Thesaurus. Ad 2: Aegidius Bucherius (Gilles Boucher), 1576-1665, was a French Jesuit and chronological scholar. His 'De Doctrina Temporum' of 1634 published for the first time a number of important medieval chronological documents, and other works on the computation of the date of Easter (the cycle of Victorius of Aquitaine). Victorius had written ca. 450 a 'Cursus Paschalis', in which he introduced a more precise computation of Easter. During the Synode of Orléans of 541 Victorius' computations were accepted by the church. (LMA 8,1629/30). Labbaeus tells us in the praefatio that he got the MS with the 'Cursus Paschalis' from his fellow Jesuit Jacobus Sirmundus during a visit to Paris in 1615. The editio princeps of and the commentary on the 'Cursus Paschalis' and of the other late antique and early medieval computistical texts laid together with the work of Joseph Justus Scaliger (1579 and 1606) and that of Dionysius Petavius (1627) the foundations of the science of 'Computus', the science of time-reckoning, and of 'Computus ecclesiasticus', the method to regulate the calender of the church, especially the date of Easter) (Collation: Ad 1: pi-1; A - 2C-4; chi-1, A - 2A-4, 2B-2, 2C - 2H-4; a - e-4.

        The History of The Civil Wars of England 1640, To 1660

      Not Stated, London, 1679, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionSize: 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall, The text of this rebound copy is quite rough in all respects, though striking me as legible with minimal chipping. Author is given as "T. H." A lengthy summary of the texts condition will follow. It seems likely that the first section (title page thru @ page 47) of text experienced color bleed brown staining at margin edges in it's original binding. The title page is much affected, those following less so. I will be photographing the title page for the books listing. Mercifully the darkening is confined to the margins in the main. The collector had made small light penciled notes on the title page as was his habit. Surely they can erase but I will not be doing so, as this should, I think, be done by an Archivist. Additionally the collector noted the Wing and M & H catalog numbers on the first, replaced endsheet. Some corrected (and uncorrected) dog earing is noted, not a great deal. The edges of the text are rather rounded at the bottom.The end sheets and pastedowns were replaced with beige toned stock. Not a perfect match for the original foxed and age darkened matter, but well chosen. The last printed sheet has a small, ancient penned note at it's bottom, a darkened spot, and tiny chips out of it's margin. I have not had the chance to get an archivists opinion as to whether the text edges were cropped for the restoration process, but I suspect not. The edges are quite dark, the header titling seems to vary in location from 1/4" down to 1/2" down from page top. Fore edge may have had marbling but age has obscured it, it and the bottom are lighter than the top, splotchier, the top edge is almost a walnut color and more even. The boards are done in sturdy, modern brown cloth with a black and gilt spine label. Book is 6 5/8 X 4 3/8" 286 pages, gathered in 8 leaf signatures, J signature not present, intentionally so as the pagination is correct throughout. With the book we will tender the collectors notes showing "First edition. Wing H-2239 and Macdonald and Hargreaves 86."
