Ephemera
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.

The ?oldest [account] that is known about life in a Brazilian city?. 1679. Paris. Louis Billaine. In 4to (230 mm x 172 mm). 1 [blank] + 5 ff. + 327 + 218 + 144 + 12 ff. + 1 [blank] + double page map. Elegant recent calf in period style. Title page with margins a bit soiled, last pages with mainly marginal dampstaining, worst towards the end, but generally fine. First edition edited by Pierre Duval (third in all) and the most complete ?and best- edition of the accounts of Laval´s extraordinary adventures in 1611, ?L´edition de Paris, Louis Billaine, 1679, in-4., est preferable... par rapport aux divers traits et relation curieuse, et aux observations géographiques de Ch. Duval? (Brunet). ?The most complete edition, with important additions by Du Val. Chapters 16, 26 and 27 of the second part relate to Brazil? (Sabin).

The map is illustrated ?for the first time- with a folding map of the route undertaken by Laval, drawn by Du Val. Pyrard, a French seaman, set sail from France in 1601 destined to India; before arriving to destination, his ship wrecked off the Maldives and the survivors were captured by natives. Pyrard swiftly gained the favor of the King and stayed with him for five years. Eventually he got to India where he regained his freedom.

ROSENKRANTZ, Oluf.)
Lübeck, 1679. 4:o. (2),+ 67 s. Titelbladet uppfodrat i innermarginal. Tagen ur band och insatt i senare marmorerat pappband med röd titeletikett, röda snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 1517. Thesaurus 632. Warmholtz 5055, not. De tre danska adelsmännen Knud, Holger och Tage Thott flydde våren 1678 till Danmark efter anklagelser om att ha hjälpt snapphanarna. I april samma år avrättades de i Malmö ?in effigie?, d.v,s. dockor föreställande dem blev symboliskt halshuggna och fick huvudena uppsatta på pålar. Holger Thotts slott Sövdeborg överlämnades till Jörgen Sperling. Efter krigsslutet fick de dock återkomma och Holger återfick slottet. Den svenske vicegeneralguvernören i Malmö Jörgen Sperling var en hårdför snapphanejägare och ökänd bl.a. för sitt försök att komma över Krageholms slott genom att efter en summarisk rättegång och dom 1678 låta avrätta dess ägare Jörgen Krabbe. Krabbe var dessutom svåger till Thottarna. Oluf Rosencrantz (1623-85) var geheimråd och författare samt ihärdig försvarare av den danska adelns rättigheter. Han angrep även domen mot Jörgen Krabbe i skriften ?En sandfærdig repliqve imod den falske deduction.?, även den utkommen 1678. Han angrep dock inte bara den svenska staten utan försvarar i andra verk den danska adeln även mot det danska enväldets övergrepp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

BRASSINNE, Emile.
A separately paginated offprint from the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de Toulouse, Tom. III. Brassinne begins (pp. 11-46) with a summary of the contents of Fermat's Varia Opera published by his son Samuel in 1679. This is followed (pp. 47-131) with a summary of the six books of Diophantus' Arithmetica, together with the comments Fermat added in the margins of his copy of the 1621 edition of that work (one of which was Fermat's 'last theorem'). The remainder of the work reprints Fermat's correspondence with Mersenne, Pascal, Roberval and others. In view of the relative inaccessibility of the original works, for many 19th century mathematicians and historians this was the most accessible source for understanding Fermat's work before the publication of his Oeuvres (1891-1912).. 8vo: 220 x 140 mm. Contemporary plain wrappers (chipped at edges). 164 pp. and 2 folded engraved plates

- London - Henry Hills et al, Richard Royston et al, and Thomas Basset et al respectively, 1679 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Two important and scarce trials, onefrom 1679 and another from 1683, relating to events and allegations of the alleged Popish plot. Bound with a rare reprint in 1679 of the Essex trial.

Robert Jenison, (b. 1648/9, d. in or after 1704), was an informer involved in the investigations surrounding the Popish Plot.

Walcott served in Cromwell's army in Ireland in the 1650s. The Restoration brought Walcott incarceration in Dublin Castle on suspicion of having been Charles I's executioner, but he was acquitted.

Hobbes, Thomas
[London] Printed in the Year 1679. 1588-1679 Octavo, 6.25 x 4 inches.. First edition, this title. [p]1, B-G8, H4, I-T8, V4. 286 pages. This is a clean copy, in seventeenth century boards, rebacked. Hobbes's history of the Great Rebellion, [sometimes titled] Behemoth, was completed in manuscript around 1668, when Hobbes was almost eighty years old. Some pirated editions were published in the late 1670's, but an authorized version of the book was not printed until 1682. In a letter of 19 June 1679, written a few months before his death, Hobbes explained the frustrating delay: 'I would fain have published my Dialogue of the Civil Wars of England,' long ago; and to that end I presented it to his Majesty: and some days after, when I thought he had read it, I humbly besought him to let me print it; but his Majesty, though he heard me graciously, yet he flatly refused to have it published.' Charles II may have hesitated to license the work, despite its outspoken championing of the royalist cause, because of its equally outspoken, but politically awkward anticlericalism. "Hobbes had developed an analytical framework for discussing sedition, rebellion, and the breakdown of authority in earlier works, particularly in De Cive (1642) and Leviathan (1651). His decision, late in life, to provide an account of the political convulsions that struck England between 1640 and 1660 gave him the opportunity to apply this framework historically. The book he dictated is cast as a discussion between a master A, and his pupil, B. Unlike a straightforward narrative, the dialogue format allowed Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beaumont, Francis and John Fletcher
London: Printed by J. Macock for John Martyn, Henry Herringman, Richard Marriot, 1679. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. SCARCE. Although this is the second edition of this collection of Beaumont and Fletcher';s Renaissance Comedies and Tragedies, it is considered the definitive edition because it includes a number of works that were not included in the 1647 folio.  This edition also includes actor lists and the songs that accompanied the plays. Bound in brown three quarter leather with marbled brown paper covered boards.  There is a leather title label in the second of five compartments with gilt title. There have been repairs to the leather over time and there are many scuffs and rubbing to both the spine and boards. The hinges are cracked but the text block is firm and tight. The frontispiece and the title page have been mounted in.  The title page has a narrow two inch tear on bottom right. The interior pages are clean with minor foxing and browning on many pages that do not affect the text. A previous owner has written in corresponding page numbers on the contents page in antiquated ink. There is a dark brown spot and tiny hole on one leaf.  Still in reasonably nice condition. The pagination runs to page 578, and then the numbering starts anew with the play The Queen of Corinth, and continues to page 557. .

Internally clean and fine, printed on thick, good paper. ¶ Extremely scarce first edition of Leclerc's important work on binocular vision in which he finds that one of the eyes has a dominant status, thus announcing the discovery of the "Master-eye" - a discovery of outmost importance in the theory of shooting and elsewhere. With use of diagrams he shows that "things that can be seen clearly are seen with but one single eye.". He records and depicts a large series of experiments with binocular vision and shows geometrically the relation to the science of perspective, and points out the importance of understanding the physiology of binocular vision for perspective painting in general.Sebastien Leclerc was originally an engraver who studied physics and geometry in relation to perspective theory, a field of which he became famous. In 1672 he was appointed to "l'Academie de Peinture" as professor in perspective. He was also engraver to Louis XIV and was appointed professor at "l'Ecole des Gobelins".

Guilielmo Lyndwood [William Lyndwood]
Oxford - H. Hall, 1679 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very scarce copy of thisrevised edition of the 1664 work on English canon law. William Lyndwood (c. 1375 1446) was an English bishop of St. David's, diplomat and canonist. He is, however, chiefly remembered for his great commentary upon the ecclesiastical decrees enacted in English provincial councils under the presidency of the Archbishops of Canterbury. This elaborate work, commonly known as the Provinciale, follows the arrangement of the titles of the Decretals of Gregory IX in the Corpus Juris, and copies of much of the medieval English legislation enacted, in view of special needs and local conditions, to supplement the jus commune. Lyndwood's gloss gives an account of the views accepted among the English clergy of his day upon all sorts of subjects. This edition also contains John of Acton's gloss, composed circa 1333-1335, on the Legatine Constitutions of the thirteenth century papal legates, Cardinals Otto and Ottobuono for England. Decorative head and tail pieces. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: Rebound in a full calf binding with original spine labels. Externally worn, with wear to the extremities and rubbing to the boards. Internally, generallyfirmly bound. Front hinge reinforcedwith cloth tape. Library label to front pastedown. Ink inscriptions to recto of front free-endpaper. Pages are age-toned, with some scattered spotting. Overall: GOOD.

Die in kräftigen Farben lithographierten Illustrationen zeigen meist in keinem inneren Zusammenhang stehende kleine Szenen, die der Titel nicht ganz zu Unrecht als "drollig" beschreibt.
