HOOKE, Robert, ed.]
[John Martyn], Moses Pitt, and Richard Chiswell, London, 1679. With 7 engraved plates (6 folding). Bound together in contemporary marbled boards, rebacked; some top margins trimmed closely with occasional loss of page number only. First edition of the missing Philosophical collections, printed in a very small edition, and now exceptionally rare. The death of the Royal Society's secretary, Henry Oldenburg, in 1677 interrupted the publication of the Philosophical transactions. These scientific papers, edited by Hooke, were issued to fill the void in the Royal Society publication from the last number of the Philosophical transactions in 1679 until it resumed again in 1682/3. Hooke, who was also Curator of Experiments, contributed a couple of important papers, including An optical discourse, which proposed treatment for near-sightedness, and A mechanical discourse. . . . Other landmark papers include: Leeuwenhoek's announcement of the "discovery of spermatozoa"; Lana's "flying chariot"; Borelli's De motu musculorum; Tyson's Anatomy of a porpess (sic); and astronomical observations by Hevelius, Flamsteed, and Cassini on the eclipse of Jupiter by the moon in 1679 and 1681. In addition, discoveries by Moxon, Malpighi, Thomas Burnett, Edmund Halley, Bernoulli, and Leibniz are included. The plates illustrate, inter alia, Bernier's flying machine, Borelli's underwater breathing apparatus, and a new lamp invented by Robert Boyle. William Brigg's A new theory of vision, a discussion of the optic nerves, is accompanied by a plate illustrating a dissected eye; this detailed physiological … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rohr, Philipp. (Montague Summers, his copy)
Lipsiae: Typis Michaelis Vogtii, 1679. first edition; leaves slightly shorter than 20 cm., [24] unnumbered pages beginning with title, A1; later paper covered boards darkened and rubbed at leather spine and tips, general age toning but entirely readable and not at all fragile, C3 has five block letters penciled in margins, overall a very good copy for this very infrequently seen item; Montague Summers' copy with his book plate by Eric Gill, "Alphoinvs Montagve Svmmers Liber svvs ..." with a wood engraving featuring Saint Jerome and lion; usually translated as ?On the Chewing Dead? Rohr's work explores the strange and terrible legends of the dead reanimated through demonic possession devouring their own shrouds and moving on to gnaw on nearby corpses in a sort of unholy manduction, this of course has a relevance to the vampire mythos that certainly would have been appreciated b.

SANSON, Nicolas, père & fils
Frankfurt: Johann David Zunner,, 1679. bestehend in den vier bekannten Theilen der Welt als, Europa, Asia, Africa und America sampt schönen neuen und accuraten Land-Karten nebenst einer Geographischen und Historischen Beschreibung... 4 parts bound in one, quarto (240 × 186 mm). Contemporary vellum, title inked to spine. Engraved allegorical frontispiece/title page with female figures with the attributes of the four continents, and 63 maps, 59 of them double-page, 5 folding. . Worm trails to both sets of endpapers, marginal worming to last three maps, vellum lightly rubbed and marked, else an excellent copy. First German edition of Sanson's handsome atlas portatif, translated from the French continental volumes published in 1648, 1652, 1655, and 1657. The collation resembles closely the 1683 edition with 62 engraved maps, here with 15 maps of the Americas, 13 of Europe, 17 of Asia, and 18 of Africa. Nicolas Sanson père (1600-1667) began as a military engineer, but was encouraged by his publisher Melchior Tavernier to become a cartographer. Originally he worked in his native town of Abbeville (he is sometimes referred to as Sanson d'Abbeville), later moving to Paris. Considered by many as the founder of the French school of cartography, his maps, although "not nearly as ornamental as the maps of the Dutch school", their embellishment being "confined to a title cartouche for each map… they are very clear and neat, pleasing to the eye and of handy format" (Tooley). Sanson founded a dynasty consisting of his sons Nicolas le fils and Guillaume, and two grandsons Adri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Montagu, Ralph
London: Jonathan Edwin at the Three Roses in Ludgate-Street, 1679. Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. First Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. This is a laying-in of two letters to the Lord Treasurer by Montagu in hardcover. From the balance of the title page, "One of the 11th, the other of the 18th of Jan 1678." Collation is quarto, though size, of course, is smaller. The fifteen pages of text are laid with multiple beautiful parchment beige endsheets into boards. The boards are three-quarter bound in navy leather with gilt embellishments (spine and diagonal tips) with marbled paper for the balance and the first and final endsheets and pastedowns. The item seems to be correct for wing number M2468. This information, plus Montagu's name and the book's institutional placements, are pencilled on the second, replaced endsheet. The text of the items themselves are wonderfully legible and minimally foxed and stained. I feel reasonably confident that the original text's edges are natural and not cropped due to their aged appearance. The title page has the only notable issues of the piece, those being a "9" penned at the title's top and a marked discoloration at its edges. I find the text surprisingly supple and bright. It is perhaps worth noting, that while the text is wholly legible, it has a rustic character appropriate to it's age and make. ie some bleed thru and roughness. All fully readable. Our restorer indicates all glues used are reversible. Spine label says Danby, referring to the Lord Treas. The Earl of Danby. Oddly, the first of the final, replaced endsheets, has a smudg … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hobbes, Thomas
London: Not Stated, 1679. Book. Fair. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" 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 original 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

VISSCHER, Nicolaes (1649-1702)
[Amsterdam: Jansson, circa 1679]. Copper-engraved map with original colouring. In good condition, with some expert repairs to center fold and adjacent splits. 19 3/4 x 23 inches. A beautifully coloured double- hemisphere map from the Golden Age of Dutch cartography This richly coloured and ornamented world map appeared at the zenith of Dutch mapmaking when aesthetics and geographical science played equal parts in cartography. The rich marginal surround of seasonal and astrological figures so handsomely and cleverly constructed here was intended to be both beautiful and meaningful, placing the world in a larger, cosmological context, the way we would now in maps of the solar system. The zodiacal circuit, fancifully depicted and actually not strictly in sequence, represents the succession of months and years, as well as the supernatural element in the course of events. Geographically, this is the world as known to the most active seafarers of the 17th century, and represents the stunning national achievement. It is a monument to both Renaissance open-mindedness and to the emerging Dutch nation. The image of Australia and the Pacific, for instance, is based on knowledge gained during Abel Tasman's mid-17th century voyage. The world map invariably appeared at the beginning of an atlas and served to indicate the importance of the undertaking and the high aesthetic standard to which it was conducted. It was also a statement of pride in civilized accomplishment. The world, so it seemed, belonged to those who understood what it was and what it looked like. One looked to the map … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gabaret, Jean, Sieur d'Angoulins:
[Np]. 1679-1681.. A total of [52]pp. of neat manuscript written in French on folded sheets. Folio. Original ribbon ties. Overall in excellent condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. From the papers of Michel Bégon (see below). This French manuscript records two separate voyages to the Caribbean by Lieut. Gabaret during 1679-81. Gabaret, a member of a family prominent in French naval affairs of this period, served with distinction in the European wars of the previous decade. He was sent to the Antilles aboard Le Bon, leaving Brest with a squadron of other vessels including Le Triomphant, L'Opiniastre, and Le Tigre. The Comte Destrées, vice admiral of France, apparently led the expedition to the American islands. The squadron arrived in Martinique on June 22, 1679, sighted Jamaica on July 18, entered the port of Havana to request the return of French prisoners, and coasted Jamaica, noting navigational details. They departed Jamaica on Aug. 26, the French vessels struggling through a hurricane from Sept. 5 to 15, and then sighting Florida. In October the expedition returned to Brest with four vessels. The second expedition, covering the period from April 20, 1680 through March 2, 1681, was also sent to retrieve French prisoners in the Spanish Caribbean possessions. It consisted of several vessels under the command of Destrées, including L'Excellent, L'Hasardeux, La Diligente, Le Marin, La Tempeste, and Les Seux. Land was first sighted on June 23. On July 4 the group set out for St. Croix from Fort St. Pierre in Martinique. Arriving on July 7, they anchored at S … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, 1679 This trial was a consequence of the Popish Plot. Sir George Wakeman ( physician to the Queen), William Marshall , William Rumley and James Corker ( Benedictine Monks), were accused by Titus Oates and others of conspiring to murder King Charles II. They were tried on 18 July 1679 and acquitted after the jury had been instructed that it could not find them guilty of misprision of high treason (ie having knowledge but without necessarily involvement in the offence). After the trial Wakeman left the country and Rumley was found to be a lay brother. However Marshall and Corker were promptly rearrested for being priests; although convicted and sentenced to death they were not executed but were imprisoned until the accession of James 11 in 1685 . pp (4) + 84. Internally very good subject to some inoffensive marking and staining. Recently rebound in quarter leather.. Quarter Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.
