Evelyn, John
London: Printed for John Martyn, Printer to the Royal Society, 1679. Third edition, "much inlarged, and improved," etc. Illustrated with 5 copper-engravings in the text, including one full-page. 1 vols. Folio. Evelyn's Sylva , first published in 1664, is a treatise on forestry, written to promote the cultivation of timber for building the Royal Navy. As Disraeli wrote: "It was an author in his studious retreat, who, casting a prophetic eye on the age we live in, secured the late victories of our national sovereignty. Inquire at the Admiralty how the fleets of Nelson have been constructed and they can tell you that it was with the oaks that the genius of Evelyn planted." This is the first edition to include Abraham Cowley's poem, "The Garden" and Evelyn's "Philosophical Discourse of the Earth", in second edition (published separately in 1676); "Pomona" is of the third edition; and "Kalendarium Hortense" is of the fifth edition; the errata leaf is present.

Titus Oates; Adam Elliot; W Bedloe; Mr Miles Prance et al.
A true narrative of the horrid plot and conspiracy of the popish party against the life of His sacred Majesty, the government, and the Protestant religion: with a list of such noblemen, gentlemen, and others that were the conspirators: and the head-officers both civil an military, that were to effect it. Published by the order of the Right Honourable the Lords spiritual and temporal in Parliament assembled. Humbly presented to His most excellent Majesty. By Titus Otes, D.D. [with] The King's evidence justifi'd: or Doctor Oates's vindication of himself, and the reality of the plot, against a traiterous libel, called The compendium; contrived by the Jesuits, to the dishonour of the King and kingdom. [with] A modest vindication of Titus Oates the Salamanca-doctor from perjury: or An essay to demonstrate him only forsworn in several instances. By Adam Elliot, Master of Arts, and a priest of the Church of England. [with] A narrative and impartial discovery of the horrid Popish plot: carried on for the burning and destroying the cities of London and Westminster, with their suburbs, &c. Setting forth the several consults, orders and resolutions of the Jesuites, &c. concerning the same. And divers depositions and informations, relating thereunto. Never before printed. By Capt. William Bedloe. Lately engaged in that horrid design, and one of the popish committee for carrying on such fires. [with] A true narrative and discovery of several very remarkable passages relating to the horrid Popish Plot: as they fell within the knowledge of Mr Miles Prance of Covent-Garden, goldsmith. Viz. I. His depositions concerning the plot in general, and a particular design against the life of His Sacred Majesty. II. The whole proceedings touching the murther of Sir Edmundbury Godfrey, and the particular circumstances thereof. III. A conspiracy to murther the Right Honourable the Earl of Shaftsbury. IV. The traiterous intrigues and immoralities of divers popish priests. Published by
Various, 1679. Condition: Good. Eight extraordinarily scarce works on the Popish Plot with several not seen at auction since the 1970's. Comprising of eight works bound as one. The first five pamphlets regard Titus Oates, William Bedloe and Miles Prance with their fictional 'Popish Plots'. These gentleman worked hard to convince the monarchy and general public that the Catholics and Jesuits intended to assassinate the King, Charles II, implicating many innocent people who lost their lives. The final three works focuses solely on Elizabeth Cellier, an accused Catholic who was imprisoned for her involvement in the so-called 'Meal-Tub Plot' against James II (Charles II's successor). Titus Oates, also known as Titus the liar was an English perjurer who fabricated the 'Popish Plot'. This plot was a supposed Catholic conspiracy to assassinate Charles II. The first work to this book, 'A True Narrative...' is the first edition, and is Oates asserting and declaring this plot, which led to the executions of at least 22 men. He was requested to publish his own narrative of the conspiracy which then took this form. Oates took advantage of the already existing Anti-Catholic sentiment which had flared from the King's marriage to the Catholic princess, Catherine of Portugal. Oates and William Bedloe even tried to implicate the Queen in this plot. It later transpired that this plot was false and Oates was tried for perjury. 'A True Narrative of the Horrid Popish Plot..' is lacking the frontispiece and the first three leaves after title page, work begins on the third page of the dedication … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Guillim
London: Covers loose, a few pages loose. "A Display of Heraldry", by John Guillim (1565-1621). This book was published in nine editions between 1610 and 1724, and each edition seems to have had variations. It is considered the master work on the subject of heraldry. This copy, rebound, is Edition Five, published in 1679, and dedicated to Charles II, King of England, during his lifetime. This book contains approximately 150 individually hand painted illustrations of the coats of arms of British nobility. Approximately 9" x 14" in size, weight of nearly 8 pounds. There is a bookplate from Castle Goring on the back of the front cover. A book of great rarity, in any edition, and an essential reference work for those interested in heraldry. It is also a reference work for those who collect Chinese and Japanese pottery and porcelain as heraldic symbols were frequently used, particularly on Chinese export items. I am in the process of assisting with the sale of the reference library of a serious collector of Chinese and Japanese porcelain and pottery items.

CANTELLI, Giacomo (1643-1695)
In folio (mm 477x325). Frontespizio calcografico raffigurante Mercurio, Sansone, Europa, Asia, Africa ed America, pp. [4: Catalogo delle Tavole], 97 carte geografiche incise in rame su doppia pagina con i confini colorati a mano all'epoca. Piena bazzana coeva, dorso a sette nervi con ricchi fregi e titolo in oro (minimi restauri agl'angoli, qualche macchia e spellatura, cerniere lievemente aperte, ma ottimamente conservata). Al verso del titolo firma di appartenenza, in parte cassata: "Ad usum Presbiteri Joannis Beri". La stessa mano ha corretto la numerazione delle tavole nell'indice -l'estensore essendosi accorto che una delle carte relative ai Paesi Bassi è in realtà rilegata fuori posto-; ha numerato le mappe dalla 1 alla 50 conformemente alla numerazione da lui corretta nell'indice; infine ha integrato l'indice a stampa aggiungendo numero, titolo e data per le 12 mappe aggiuntive che non compaiono nell'indice a stampa, che si ferma alla carta 85. Titolo più corto del resto del volume nel margine esterno, fioriture sparse, lieve alone marginale alle ultime carte, ma ottima copia genuina. Importante raccolta di carte geografiche, curata dallo stampatore Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi in collaborazione con il cartografo del Duca di Modena Giacomo Cantelli. La collaborazione tra i due, cominciata nel 1679, durò fino alla morte del Cantelli, avvenuta nel 1695. Le singole carte geografiche sono datate dal 1669 al 1690. A parte alcune mappe firmate dai cartografi francesi Michael Antoine Baudrand, Guillaume Sanson, Nicholas Sanson e Augustin Lubin, la gran parte delle carte è oper … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published by the order of the Right Honourable the Lords spiritual and temporal in Parliament assembled. Humbly presented to His most excellent Majesty. By Titus Otes, D.D.

The first five pamphlets regard Titus Oates, William Bedloe and Miles Prance with their fictional 'Popish Plots'. These gentleman worked hard to convince the monarchy and general public that the Catholics and Jesuits intended to assassinate the King, Charles II, implicating many innocent people who lost their lives. The final three works focuses solely on Elizabeth Cellier, an accused Catholic who was imprisoned for her involvement in the so-called 'Meal-Tub Plot' against James II (Charles II's successor). Titus Oates, also known as Titus the liar was an English perjurer who fabricated the 'Popish Plot'. This plot was a supposed Catholic conspiracy to assassinate Charles II. The first work to this book, 'A True Narrative...' is the first edition, and is Oates asserting and declaring this plot, which led to the executions of at least 22 men. He was requested to publish his own narrative of the conspiracy which then took this form. Oates took advantage of the already existing Anti-Catholic sentiment which had flared from the King's marriage to the Catholic princess, Catherine of Portugal. Oates and William Bedloe even tried to implicate the Queen in this plot. It later transpired that this plot was false and Oates was tried for perjury.

[BIBLE - DUTCH].
Cf. Biblia Sacra 1679.B.dut.JvSwid.a (1 copy of other 1679 bible ed.); Le Long, p. 887 (other 1679 ed.?); Poortman, Bijbel en prent I, p. 237 (other 1679 ed.?); STCN 098385259 (same copy as Biblia Sacra); not in Darlow & Moule; STCN. Possibly unrecorded edition of the Dutch States translation of the Bible (Old and New Testament), published by the company of Amsterdam Bible publishers established in 1675. The company published another edition in the same format in the same year (surviving in one copy as catalogued by STCN and Biblia Sacra), but the collation clearly differs from that of the present edition. Le Long and Poortman record one these editions, without giving details, but they presumably knew the copy described by STCN and Biblia Sacra. The States translation was the standard text for the Dutch Reformed Church and many other Dutch Protestants from 1637 to 1773. The present copy is interleaved and contains numerous contemporary manuscript annotations. They are primarily references to other religious texts, but also include a few comments and alternative translations. At the end are seven pages with longer manuscript notes in Latin, with some occasional Greek and Hebrew. The bindings heavily rubbed, but structurally sound, and internally in very good condition.

Click here to view a short video presentation of this item. Le Grand Continent par P Du Val Geographe Ordinaire du Roy.(Africa- India- Arabia- Middle East- Persia- China- East Indies- Japan) Issued 1679, Paris by P. Du Val. Issued as part of a now very rare four-sheet wall map, this sheet offered alone. Any and all sheets are scarce in the market as are most folio sheet Du Val maps of this era. Attractive, fascinating and rare 17th century folio sheet map, with original outline hand color. Of particular interest for the depiction of Africa as well as India and Asiatic regions eastward. Title bottom center with natives of the region holding it either side, decorative cartouche around key top right. Great Wall of China shown ending at border of Korea. As noted by Shirley, the map was issued separately and was rendered in such a way as allowing the top portion with title to be trimmed off so the sheets could all be joined. A full example is shown in Shirley's Mapping of the World, 489. Video captures the condition in detail, old paper repairs on reverse, some damp staining, spots of color offset, paper slightly soft along edges, blank margins trimmed down to at or slightly within neat lines, etc. Rare enough that allowances must be made for any example in any condition. Sheet measures c. 17 1/8" x 23 1/8". Printed area measures c. 16" x 22 3/4". Shirley, Mapping of the World, 489 (noting it was also published separately).

Titus Oates; Adam Elliot; W Bedloe; Mr Miles Prance et al.
A true narrative of the horrid plot and conspiracy of the popish party against the life of His sacred Majesty, the government, and the Protestant religion: with a list of such noblemen, gentlemen, and others that were the conspirators: and the head-officers both civil an military, that were to effect it. Published by the order of the Right Honourable the Lords spiritual and temporal in Parliament assembled. Humbly presented to His most excellent Majesty. By Titus Otes, D.D. [with] The King's evidence justifi'd: or Doctor Oates's vindication of himself, and the reality of the plot, against a traiterous libel, called The compendium; contrived by the Jesuits, to the dishonour of the King and kingdom. [with] A modest vindication of Titus Oates the Salamanca-doctor from perjury: or An essay to demonstrate him only forsworn in several instances. By Adam Elliot, Master of Arts, and a priest of the Church of England. [with] A narrative and impartial discovery of the horrid Popish plot: carried on for the burning and destroying the cities of London and Westminster, with their suburbs, &c. Setting forth the several consults, orders and resolutions of the Jesuites, &c. concerning the same. And divers depositions and informations, relating thereunto. Never before printed. By Capt. William Bedloe. Lately engaged in that horrid design, and one of the popish committee for carrying on such fires. [with] A true narrative and discovery of several very remarkable passages relating to the horrid Popish Plot: as they fell within the knowledge of Mr Miles Prance of Covent-Garden, goldsmith. Viz. I. His depositions concerning the plot in general, and a particular design against the life of His Sacred Majesty. II. The whole proceedings touching the murther of Sir Edmundbury Godfrey, and the particular circumstances thereof. III. A conspiracy to murther the Right Honourable the Earl of Shaftsbury. IV. The traiterous intrigues and immoralities of divers popish priests. Published by
London: Various, 1679. Eight extraordinarily scarce works on the Popish Plot with several not seen at auction since the 1970's. Comprising of eight works bound as one. The first five pamphlets regard Titus Oates, William Bedloe and Miles Prance with their fictional 'Popish Plots'. These gentleman worked hard to convince the monarchy and general public that the Catholics and Jesuits intended to assassinate the King, Charles II, implicating many innocent people who lost their lives. The final three works focuses solely on Elizabeth Cellier, an accused Catholic who was imprisoned for her involvement in the so-called 'Meal-Tub Plot' against James II (Charles II's successor). Titus Oates, also known as Titus the liar was an English perjurer who fabricated the 'Popish Plot'. This plot was a supposed Catholic conspiracy to assassinate Charles II. The first work to this book, 'A True Narrative...' is the first edition, and is Oates asserting and declaring this plot, which led to the executions of at least 22 men. He was requested to publish his own narrative of the conspiracy which then took this form. Oates took advantage of the already existing Anti-Catholic sentiment which had flared from the King's marriage to the Catholic princess, Catherine of Portugal. Oates and William Bedloe even tried to implicate the Queen in this plot. It later transpired that this plot was false and Oates was tried for perjury. 'A True Narrative of the Horrid Popish Plot..' is lacking the frontispiece and the first three leaves after title page, work begins on the third page of the dedication to Charle … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERMAT, PIERRE DE
Toulouse: Jean Pech, 1679. First edition. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION of Fermat's Collected Works, containing the first publication of most of his work. Fermat is "often called the founder of the modern theory of numbers. Together with Descartes, Fermat was one of the two leading mathematicians of the first half of the 17th century. Independently of Descartes, Fermat discovered the fundamental principle of analytic geometry. His methods for finding tangents to curves and their maximum and minimum points led him to be regarded as the inventor of the differential calculus. Through his correspondence with Blaise Pascal he was a co-founder of the theory of probability" (Carl B. Boyer, Britannica). Fermat was famously averse to publishing and very little of his work appeared in print during his lifetime; the Varia Opera, assembled and edited by his son Samuel, appeared posthumously in 1679 and "remained the only published collection of Fermat's papers until the late nineteenth century" (Mahoney, The Mathematical Career of Pierre de Fermat). Dibner 108. Provenance: The Inner Temple Library, with small ink stamp on title and a few other leaves. (The Inner Temple library is one of the most renowned private legal reference libraries in the world, dating back to 1506.) English mathematician and member of the Royal Society Francis Maseres's (1731-1824) copy with his signature on front flyleaf and annotations in text. (Maseres became affliated with the Inner Temple in 1750 and remained associated with the library throughout his life.) Toulouse: Jean Pech, 1679.
