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.

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
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 Charles II.

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).

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.

BACON, Francis
1679. "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." ― Francis Bacon Francis Bacon, one of the most famous English philosophers and scientists of the Renaissance. While most of his work deals with discovery, scientific method, and the scientific revolution, he did lean strongly toward Puritanism in his personal devotion. An extremely rare first edition printing of the works of Bacon under the title 'Baconiana'. This work, published by Chiswell and edited by Thomas Tenison, is printed in five complete parts with separate title pages, each with Latin titles - 'Politico-moralia', 'Physiologica', 'Medica', 'Theologica', and 'Bibliographica'.

HIPPOCRATES
1679. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity." ― Hippocrates Known as the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates was a Greek physician from the 4th-century BC. He is recognized for his lasting contributions to the medical field by establishing it as a scientific study and not just a philosophy. One of his most important book was 'Aphorisms' in which Hippocrates wrote short proverbial principles on health and medicine. He discussed the secrets to long life, the importance of a healthy diet, appropriate amount of sleep, cures for pleurisy, pneumonia, melancholia, vertigo, dysentery, epilepsy, coughs, and which season each disease is most likely to occur. This exceedingly rare 17th-century edition of the works of Hippocrates contains the commentary of Giovanni Marinelli, a Modense physician known only for this commentary. [Attributes: First Edition]

Padeloup is noted for good solid binding; the decorations he used, though poor in conception, are marvels of careful execution."

Ludwig XIV., König von Frankreich (1638-1715)
Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 18. II. 9 SS. auf 6 (= 3 Doppel-)Blatt. Folio. Mit Adresse. An den französischen Botschafter im verbündeten Schweden, Isaac de Pas (1618-88), Marquis de Feuquières, 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 greatest … [Click Below for Full Description]

The map is handsomely framed using the highest standards (UV protective glass, acid free paper, wooden, i.e. strong and water resistant, reverse side).Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1605 - 1689), was born in Paris, where his father Gabriel and uncle Melchior, protestants from Antwerp, pursued the profession of geographers and engravers.

He was eager to visit the East; and he found the opportunity to join two French fathers, M. de Chapes and M. de St Liebau, who had received a mission to the Levant. In their company he r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thiboust, Cor. van Merlen e altri. Le annotazioni hanno il testo su due colonne. "Edizione originale", pregevole soprattutto per la parte iconografica. Cfr. Piantanida,I,485: “Opera curiosa per la sua stravaganza.. ‘Il plagiario inventore delle tavole copiò il martirio di S. Pietro Domenicano dipinto da Tiziano per trasmutarvi l'uccisione di Alberto I Imperatore XXXI d'Occidente' (così il Cicognara,2077, che conobbe però un esemplare di 42 tavole soltanto). L'opera entra a far parte della collezione “Monarchia imperii orientalis”, come 9° vol. fungendo quindi da supplemento. L'opera, come tutte quelle della collezione, sta a sè” - Graesse,V, p. 105 - Brunet,IV,315. Antiporta restaur. ai margini per manc.; frontesp. (con antiche parole mss.) pure restaurato per manc.
