Illustratoren, S. 451. - Erste Ausgabe des seltenen, reizend illustrierten Kinderbuchs. 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. Man findet zumeist Kinder beim Spiel und Unsinntreiben oder Tierdarstellungen aller Art, häufig vermenschlicht, wie ein Schwein im Frack, einen schubkarreschiebenden Fuchs oder einen fläschchengebenden Bären. Ein Kobold, der in ein Tintenfass fällt und als eingefärbte Silhouette von dannen zieht, erinnert sehr an die Szene mit den "bösen Buben" aus dem Struwwelpeter. Das Schlussbild zeigt eine schöne, halbseitige Darstellung eines Zeppelins über einer Stadtsilhouette und mit festlich gekleideten Zuschauern im Vordergrund, darunter einen "lieben Augustin", der Graf Zeppelin mit "der Fiedel" hochleben lässt. Alle Szenen werden in knappen R … [Click Below for Full Description]

DU VAL, Pierre (1618-1683)
Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Scarce 17th century mapping of America.This superb map of the New World evinces mid-seventeenth century French geographical knowledge, based largely upon the work of the great French cartographer, Nicolas Sanson, Duval's father-in-law. It is also an excellent example of the French cartographic aesthetic, exalting clarity and classical elegance. Duval, with some geographical modernizations, based this map on his smaller 1655 rendering of the same subject. The depiction of the American Northeast is somewhat more progressive than that shown by Sanson. New York, Boston, Cape Cod, Virginia and Maryland are each specifically named. Up into the interior, Duval shows all five Great Lakes, however the boundaries of Lakes Superior and Michigan ("Lac des Puans") are left undetermined. Most of the American Southeast is shown as a part of the great Spanish territory of "Floride," which extends north into the Carolinas. South Carolina is labeled "Floride Françoise," and "Charles-Fort," the abortive French settlement on Port Royal Sound from the 1560s, is labeled here.This map appeared as the top right sheet of Duval's four sheet wall map, titled Carte de Geographie: "All [i.e. each sheet] were designed with individual titles so that they could be viewed independently or when these were removed they could be pasted together to form a large wall map" (Burden). The present example is from the first state of the map.Burden, The Mapping of North America II:508.

Tesauro Emanuele
appresso Iseppo Prodocimo, 1679. In-12° antico (163x82mm), pp. (12), 707, cartonatura coeva rustica con dorso rivestito in carta azzurra. Frontespizio inquadrato da filetti con piccola corona incisa in xilografia. Alcuni capilettera ornati. Indice alle pp. 649 e sgg. Annotazioni antiche all'ultima c. Alcuni trascurabili aloni. Buon esemplare. Impressione veneziana di questo trattato filosofico del Tesauro improntato alle linee del neoaristotelismo (la dottrina morale deriva dall'"Etica Nicomachea" e dai suoi commentatori antichi e moderni) e destinato a larga diffusione, conoscendo anche una traduzione in russo. Curioso il fatto che il Thesauro fosse arroccato su posizioni aristoteliche proprio in un secolo in cui l'aristotelismo, già attaccato o sbeffeggiato da Erasmo, da Giordano Bruno, da Telesio, dal Vives, dal La Ramée, dal Nizzolio, trovava in Galileo uno dei suoi più acerrimi nemici e, insieme, uno dei suoi più conseguenti critici. La presente edizione, assai rara, è sconosciuta alla Vinciana, che dopo aver indicato la stampa torinese del 1670 come la probabile edizione originale, segnala solo una ristampa bolognese del 1675 e una maceratese del 1681. Cat. Vinciana, 2264-2266 (altre ediz.).

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]
