        Metamorphoses D'Ovide en Rondeaux Imprimez et Enrichis de Figures Par Ordre de sa Majeste, Et Dediez a Monseigneur Le Dauphin

      Abraham Wolfgang, Amsterdam 1679 - Book. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. [11], 462, [4] pp. 227 illustrations, including frontis, which was designed by Charles Le Brun. There is an exquisite pictorial image, 2.5 by 3 inches (with one exception) to each generally 15 line verse recounting concisely one of the Metamorphoses immortal tales and/or character trasnformations. Verse is on facing pages and caption below illustration describes the scene of the picture in prose. This is a Dutch reprint of 1676 Metamorphoses published by Isaac Benserade in Paris, Imprimerie Royale. Brunet IV 288. This particular copy appears to have minor elements of a mixed state, with the frontis possibly being from the earlier Paris edition. Pages 165/166, 457/458, 459/460, and the last three leaves (which is the 6 page index, appear to come from another edition as well, with the likelihood that most of these leaves -- are from a later edition or the facsimile of another edition, given a slight difference in the paper stock, the number typography, etc. (The final leaf bears the date of 1676.) In total, thus, there are seven leaves which are probably not issued by Wolfgang in 1679, and these include the frontis and a single other image, that of Leda and the swan, the latter of which is smaller than the other text images which are uniformly approx. 2.5 by 3 inches. Light offsetting to the illustrations. Some light soilage scattered throughout. A few minor closed tears or margin losses. One page with old, rather clunky tape repair. A few other spots with more subtle or discreet Japanese tape repair. Imagery is always sharp and vivid. Binding itself is tight, and modern full leather with raised bands and understated tooling, plus title labels, make this an attractive and very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

An attractive copy. * Later issue of the edition first published by the Society of Stationers in 1606. "The Books of Assises, first published by John Rastell in 1516, are reports in a style very different from that of the other Year Books from the reign of Edward III. They are more concise than the Year Books usually are, giving rather the gist of the argument and the decision than a report of the actual proceedings. They consist chiefly of reports of assizes of novel disseisin and mort d'ancestor and various pleas of the crown heard before justices of assize in the county. They also contain a considerable number of cases in trespass and error heard in the King's Bench, and a few cases in Chancery originated by bill. Thus they were supplementary to the ordinary series of Year Books, which chiefly contained cases heard in the common bench.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:536-537.

      Ulm Matthaus Wagner fur Matthaus Schultes 1679 - With an engraved frontispiece and 117 numbered woodcuts by Hans Burgkmair, Leopold Schaufelein, Leonhard Beck and others reprinted from the sixteenth century plates, engraved initials and tail-pieces throughout. Folio, in antique half vellum over marbled boards, with institutional gold wax seal on upper board, spine lettered in manuscript. 125 ff; 58 pp. Very handsomely preserved and a very pleasing copy with a bit of age evidence to the binding and some mellowing to the prelims. A FINE EARLY ISSUE OF ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR GERMAN ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY. The poem is an allegorical chivalric romance celebrating the exploits of the hero (Emperor Maximilian I) in overcoming a series of obstacles in his journey to seek the hand in marriage of Queen Ernreich (Mary of Burgundy) in 1478. Parts of the text were composed by Maximilian himself, who had made the first drafts in 1505-8; his private secretary Melchior Pfintzing oversaw completion of the poem and edited the work. Other contributors were Maximilian's Silberkammerer Sigismund von Dietrichstein and his Geheimsekretar Marx Treitzsauerwein; Johann Stabius and the humanist Conrad Peutinger worked with the printers and artists. A contract survives dated 17 December 1508, in which Maximilian awarded the Augsburg printer Schonsperger, a specialist in the production of German illustrated books, the post of Imperial printer for life, at an annual salary of 10 florins. This printing contains additional preliminary material by Matthaus Schultes and a 58 page work on Maximilian I. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Melchior Kusel - Johann Leonhard Buggel, Augustano - Nurnberg 1679 - First edition [1679-80]. In German. Imperfect copy with an interesting provenance. Book of beautifully produced engravings of scenes from the Old and New Testaments, previously owned by George W. Van Horne [1833- 1895], appointed by Abraham Lincoln as US Consul at Marsailles. Includes an 1870 letter signed by Van Horne discussing how he purchased the book from a certain bookseller "of the highest reputation for integrity" and that it was one of only thirty copies printed, which we now strongly suspect to be untrue. What the bookseller also neglected to inform him was that there are 11 (of 249) plates missing, with no evidence that they were ever bound in. Full contemporary leather with red spine label, raised spine bands with compartments decorated with a pomegranate motif, a total of 238 plates printed on one side only, six page of text, title page, dedication, engraved pages dividing the sections, colophon.

        Garnets ghost, addressing to the Jesuits, met in private Caball, just after the murther of Sir Edmund-Bury Godfrey. Written by the Author of the Satyr against Virtue, (not yet printed.)

      [London] 1679 - Large folio. pp. 4. Drop-head title. Creases where once folded. Strengthened horizontally with a thin strip of cloth tape on the verso of the second leaf, not affecting the text. The leaf has not been torn. Rebound in twentieth century roan backed boards. Provenance John Brett-Smith. First edition and only separate edition. CBEL 2. p. 480 "pirated". Brooks Bibliography of Oldham 2. Wing O235. L, O, C, LLP, MR; CLC, CN, MH, TU. John Oldham (1653-1683) born near Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Educated at Tetbury Grammar School and St. Edmund Hall Oxford. In 1675 or thereabouts he began life in the humble position of usher at Archbishop Whitgift's School, Croydon where he remained for three years. In one of his satires he gave vent to his hatred of the position he occupied at this "Grammar-Bridewell". During Oldham's residence at Croydon he is said to have received a visit from Rochester, Dorset, Sir Charles Sedley, and some other fine gentlemen and wits. A later poem the Satire against virtue was reprinted in 1680 in an edition of Rochester's poems. His "Satires upon the Jesuits" of which Garnet's ghost is the first are among his best known works. Oldham claimed for himself "a Genius, and Poetic Rage/ Great as the vices of this guilty Age" but the unrestrained violence and obscenity of some of his diatribes did not suit Pope (a Catholic) who spoke of Oldham as "a very indelicate writer; he has strong rage, but is too much like Billingsgate." Despite this Oldham has his place in the history of English poetry as one of Pope's predecessors in the imitative or adaptive species of satirical or didactic verse. He was only to find brief fame in his lifetime - brief because he died of small-pox at the age of only 30 - but was widely admired after his death and was celebrated memorably by Dryden in his elegiac sonnet: "Farewell, too little and too briefly known". Garnet's ghost, his second publication, is described incorrectly by the writer in DNB as a "broadsheet" and, on the evidence of Wood, is stated to have been issued surreptitiously without Oldham's consent. The poem is an address of encouragement from the ghost of Henry Garnett, a Jesuit executed in 1606, to the Jesuits supposed to have been behind the Popish Plot and the murder of the London Justice of the Peace Sir Edmund-Bury Godfrey. Godfrey had been found dead on October 12th, 1678. By the time of Oldham's poem the mass hysteria associated with the plot, which saw numerous totally innocent victims brutally executed at Tyburn, had taken a strong hold. In another poem, speaking of the Jesuits and not for them, Oldham writes. "And let their mangled quarters hang the Isle. To scare all future Vermin from the Soil.". It is sad to see an intelligent man like Oldham lending his authority to this shameful episode in judicial history but he was not alone in his folly. John Evelyn, for example, who had nothing but contempt for Titus Oates, the plot's main originator, did not for a moment doubt the existence of the plot itself.

Nulla si conosce della vita dell’Autore, se non che sia presumibilmente imparentato con Andrea del Pozzo (1642-1709), architetto e pittore italiano. Il trattato studia in maniera completa ed esauriente la proiezione della luce proveniente dall’universo per la progettazione prospettica di meridiane e orologi solari e per il calcolo e la determinazione delle ore del giorno in tutti i luoghi della terra. L’opera è suddivisa in quattro parti e si basa sugli insegnamenti di Euclide, di Teodosio di Bitinia e di Apollonio di Perga, famoso per le sue opere sulle sezioni coniche. La bellissima incisione allegorica posta in antiporta illustra la prospettiva delle ombre proiettate dalla luce e i calcoli e le misurazioni per determinare l’ora esatta. Ognuna delle quattro parti in cui è divisa l’opera, possiede un proprio frontespizio ed è preceduta da un proemio al lettore e da un indice alfabetico. Il trattato è riccamente illustrato da disegni prospettici e schematici, da proiezioni e da tabelle numeriche. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Juxta Exemplar Londinense." [Amsterdam?], 1698 (Second Edition, Revised). 109 (iii) pp. Signatures: A-G8, Engraved device on title page.Texts in Latin. Hadrian Beverland (c.1650-1712), was a Dutch philosopher, collector of erotica, and classical scholar of unusual bent (E.J. Dingwall described him as "one of the oddest scholars who ever added glosses to a classical text") who had a passion for the works of Petronius, Martial, Catullus and other of the less inhibited ancient authors. He is said to have begun work on his first book, "De Stolatae Virginitatis" when he was only 20 (although he did not attempt to publish it until about his thirtieth year) and to have been working on the manuscript of his great study of sex, prostitution and brothels in the ancient world, "De Prostibulis Vetereum," throughout his late twenties. In 1678 Beverland reworked and expanded a chapter of the manuscript and published it anonymously under the title "Peccatum Originale" in Leiden. In this work Beverland argued, like Spinoza, that the Bible should be taken as allegory, and posited (in agreement with Agrippa and Robert Fludd), that the story of the Fall was actually about the discovery of sex by Adam and Eve. Original sin was in fact the human sex instinct. In what could be seen as a surprisingly modern outlook, Beverland argued that the urge for sexual pleasure was a universal human trait, found in all men and women, and that it's expression in any form was legitimate. He supported his proposition with a great number of quotations from Biblical and classical authors, many of whom were highly immodest and wrote openly about taboo subjects such as masturbation and what were then perceived as other "sexual abnormalities." Apparently dissatisfied with some aspect of the first edition of the book, Beverland published a second edition with his name boldly above the titel, "De Peccato Originalit." This is the first of the three books contained in the volume here described. A complaint was made against the book, and Beverland was imprisoned and tried before an academic tribunal. The work was said to be "abominable and scandalous" and "an abortion from depraved brains," and its author was banished for life from Holland and West Friesland. Copies of the work were publicly burned, and the author was driven from the Leiden, the Hague, and Utrecht. In 1680 Beverland published his "Justinianaei de Stolatae Virginitatis Jure, Lucubratio Academica," ("The Law Concerning Draped Virginity: An Academical Study"). This is the second book in the present volume. It is, to put it mildly, an uninhibited study, again drawing from classical studies, of virginity, its loss, the value placed upon it, seduction, female sexuality in general, etc. etc. It has gone on to be considered as a classic of erotic literature, as evidenced by an inclusion of an English translation of it "for private circulation amongst students of philology and anthropology and adult collectors of literary curiosities only" by the famous Paris based English language publisher of erotic, Charles Carrington, in 1905. The third book in the volume is Beverland's "Fornicatione Cavenda." In this work Beve [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De vita et morte P. Ignatii Azevedii et sociorum eius e Societe Iesu' Libri Quatour

      1679 - An important book for Brazilian history, defined as “believed to have not been printed” and “extremely rare”. 1679. Rome. Typographia Varesi. In 4to (218 mm x 155 mm). 4 ff. + 611. Contemporary calf, boards with gilt fillet, raised bands to spine, compartments tooled in gilt, label lettered in gilt, expertly restored, slightly rubbed. Some folios lightly but uniformly browned, inscriptions to title page, scattered foxing, else a finely preserved copy of this rarity. First edition of the life of Acevedo by Poussines, one of the earliest Jesuit missionaries to Brazil, murdered along with 39 other missionaries on their way for the second time to Brazil. Acevedo was appointed Procurador de las Misiones de la India y del Brasil, and was sent as Visitador to Brazil. He arrived at Salvador de Bahia on August 1566, where the Company had a college. Three months later he embarked on a two-year tour throughout the Jesuit missions of Brazil; this allowed him to have a first hand experience of their work in the region and fundamentally to find locations for new missions. After his return to Europe, he was appointed Provincial of Brazil and charged with recruiting more missionaries. In June 1570 he set sail for Brazil with a considerable group of thirty-nine young Spanish and Portuguese missionaries, however, their ship was attacked by the Calvinist pirate Jaques Soria de la Rochelle, who was in the service of the Queen of Navarre, and all the missionaries were massacred. Pius IX beatified the missionaries in 1854. Borba de Moraes quotes Leclerc 1636 “a rare book which for a long time was believed to have not been printed” and Samodaes “extremely rare”. Azevedo’s mission is one of the most primary sources of information of Brazil. Provenance; two stamps on title page, one from the Bibliotheque des F.F.M.M. Capuccins de Toulouse; antique manuscript inscription on upper margin “Domus Pro[?] Tolosana”. Borba de Moraes, 687. Sabin 6451. Sommervogel VI, 1129. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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 Labbe, 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 Orleans 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.
