Kusel, Melchior. Bible Engravings
Melchior Kusel - Johann Leonhard Buggel, Augustano - Nurnberg. Augustano - Nurnberg: Melchior Kusel - Johann Leonhard Buggel, 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. Covers rubbed at the edges with partial surface crack to the front joint, covers well attached, text block sound, partially removed and unidentiable armorial bookplate on the front pastedown, neatly written note in French (appears to relate to a book catalogue dated 1827) on the front free endpaper, pages clean with occasional light foxing, chips to two edges, long horizontal closed tear to one section title, two plates bound out of order.

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 wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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 ra … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Legitimacy Of Amicia, Daughter Of Hugh Cyveliok Earl Of Chester, Clearly Proved. With Full Answers to All Objections that Have at Any Time been Made Against the Same. London: Printed for Sam. Lowndes, 1679. [x], 171, [1] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine, marbled edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, boards beginning to separate, but secured by cords. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, small piece excised from rear endleaf, internally clean. $500. * Only edition. A sequel to the author's A Defence of Amicia. The 8-page preface gives a useful account of the endless pamphlet-war that following the publication of Defence in 1673, including an account of the controversy itself and the publications of Mainwaring's opponent, Peter Leicester. Amicia, the author's grandmother, was the wife of Ralph Mainwaring. Leicester, another descendant of Amicia, claimed that she was a bastard. This tract, like the others, is of legal interest for its discussion of the early common law authorities on marriage. Both authors had been students at Gray's Inn. The issue was eventually decided in Mainwaring's favor. OCLC locates 13 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (Ohio State). English Short-Title Catalogue R21678.

Tom Tickle-foot the Taborer, late Clerk to Justic Clodpate
London - A. Brewster, 1679. London - A. Brewster, 1679 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce pamphlet documenting the trials of Sir George Wakeman, WIlliam Marshal and James Corker, after their reported involvement in the Popish Plot during the reign of Charles II. Sir George Wakeman (died 1688) was an English royal physician to Catherine of Braganza, Consort of Charles II of England. In 1678, he was perjured by Titus Oates, who had gained backing of Thomas Osborne, 1st Earl of Danby, highly placed in government. Oates accused Wakeman of conspiring to kill the King with the help of and place his brother James, Duke of York on the throne in his place. At his trial in 1679 Wakeman was acquitted. The acquittal dealt a blow at credibility of the Plot, but there was a public backlash also. Wakeman went to Windsor to see the queen and king, and left the country. In the course of evidence given at subsequent trials Oates entirely ignored the verdict, and continued to speak of the bribe offered to and accepted by the queen's physician. Wakeman was back in London by 1685, and gave evidence against Oates on 8 May 1685, in his first trial for perjury. Nothing is known of his further career. He is Owen Bartletts ancestor. Condition: Disbound folio. Binding is tender, but holding. Pages are mildly browned but generally clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: GOOD..

Pergament der Zeit mit spanischen Kanten winzige Fehlstellen am Gelenk, etwas beschabt und minimal fleckig.. Editio quarta prioribus et locupletior et emendatior. Erste Ausgabe.. *** Erste Ausgabe. Vierte, von dem Polyhistoriker Joachim Feller (1628-1691) umfangreich erweiterte Ausgabe der Universalgeschichte des Johannes de Laet (1593-1649), in der die profane wie christliche Weltgeschichte auf der Grundlage der Quellen geschildert wird. "Große Verdienste erwarb sich Feller um den Ausbau der Leipziger Bibliothek. Er veröffentlichte den ersten "Catalogus codicum manuscriptorum Bibliothecae Paulinae" (Leipzig 1686), der von holländischer und englischer Seite zwar kritisch beleuchtet, aber noch 100 Jahre später von Lessing betont gewürdigt wurde. Seine historischen Arbeiten zur sächsischen Geschichte des 15. und 16. Jahrhunderts erschlossen unbekannte Quellen" (NDB V, 73). Gedruckt wurde die Ausgabe mit der besonders hübschen, feinen Antiqua-Type des Leipziger Schriftgießers Johann Erich Hahn (1656-1680) für den aus der "Bibliopolis Helmstadensis" stammenden Verleger Friedrich Lüderwald (1673-1696). Das Frontispiz gegenüber dem schwarz und rot gedruckten Titelblatt zeigt eine Allegorie der "Historia", die ihre "Milch der Weisheit" aus ihren Brüsten verspritzt und damit die flankierenden Allegorien "Pietas" und "Eruditio" erleuchtet. Diese - ebenfalls als hübsche Frauen dargestellt, werden vom Milchst … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ephemera
prev The Andrew Jackson, a 1679 ton medium clipper, was built in Mystic in 1855. She was a fast sailer but, contrary to what this handbill would imply, set no records on any of her passages. On the date of the voyage advertised here - December 16, 1861 - her captain was Johnson. It is interesting to note that, just at this time, naval action in the Civil War was ramping up. The USS Constitution arrived at Ship Island at the mouth of the Mississippi River carrying the 26th Massachusetts Regiment to New Orleans, Great Britain began their embargo on US exports, and the naval blockade of the Confederate coast began to show results. This might explain the military theme of the handbill. However, despite the turmoil of the war, the text states that the Andrew Jackson might depart “by Christmas day, but certainly on or before the 1st of January.” The ship was sold to the British in 1863 and was lost in the Gaspar Straits in 1868. This handbill measures 9 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches and has a wonderful image of Jackson astride his horse, American flag behind, which also appeared on the 1862 clipper ship sailing card for the Andrew Jackson. That card also advertised her as “The Fastest Ship in the World!” Both the card and the handbill were printed by Nesbitt, of New York. The card is scarce, but the handbill is a rare, possibly unique, survival. In Fine condition.

Ludwig XIV., König von Frankreich (1638-1715).
Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 18. II. 1679.. 9 SS. auf 6 (= 3 Doppel-)Blatt. Folio. Mit Adresse.. An den französischen Botschafter im verbündeten Schweden, Isaac de Pas (1618-1688), Marquis de Feuquieres, und tls. in Geheimschrift verfaßt, über der der Empfänger interlinear die Transkription notierte. Ludwig erklärt, daß Frankreich keine Schiffe zur Unterstützung Schwedens schicken könne, gibt Befehle zur Aufstellung der französischen Landstreitkräfte und stimmt dem Vorschlag zu einer Hochzeit des schwedischen Königs mit der Tochter des Herzogs von Braunschweig-Lüneburg zu. Da Ludwigs Armee den alliierten Streitkräften überlegen war, ging Frankreich aus dem von Ludwig angezettelten Holländischen Krieg als Sieger hervor; im "Frieden von Nijmegen", unter dem mehrere separate Friedensverträge zwischen 1678 und 1679 zusammengefaßt werden, wurde festgehalten, daß Frankreich den Großteil seiner Eroberungen behalten konnte, den Norden der besetzten Spanischen Niederlande aber zurückgeben mußte. "[...] [A] squadron of 20 or 30 ships that I might send to Sweden's aid would be too weak to withstand the forces of England; nor is it suitable to the state of my affairs to [...] support this war by putting to sea a flotilla equal to that Crown's [...] Sweden's affairs are everywhere in such a bad state, yet she does not blame her own ill conduct. I have even learned that her ruin in Prussia is so great that it is no longer possible to negotiate for peace with them until [Sweden is] convinced of the nearly invincible obstacles to naval assistance that they have expected from me [...] [S]ince the … [Click Below for Full Description]
