        The Grand Question, Concerning the Bishops Right To Vote in Parlament

      1680. A Defense of the Lords Spiritual [Stillingfleet, Edward (1635-1699), Attributed]. The Grand Question, Concerning the Bishops Right To Vote in Parlament [sic] in Cases Capital, Stated and Argued, From The Parlament [sic] Rolls, and the History of Former Times. With An Enquiry into the Peerage, And the Three Estates in Parlament [sic]. London: Printed for M.P., 1680. [iv], 188 pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary mottled calf, blind rules to boards, rebacked, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine, hinges mended. Moderate rubbing to boards with wear to corners. Light toning to text. Later signatures and annotations to endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition, one of two issues from 1680. On the face of it, this is a discussion of a right enjoyed by the Lords Spiritual, the bishops of the Church of England who sit in the house of Lords. More broadly, it is an argument defending their membership in Parliament that refuted contrary claims advanced in several recent pamphlets by Whig authors. At this time, the tense years leading to the Glorious Revolution, the Whigs feared the imminent ascendance of French-style royal absolutism and "popery," which would initiate a corresponding suppression of Protestantism and the rights of Englishmen. Stillingfleet, a prominent theologian and scholar, was an able and enthusiastic defender of Anglican orthodoxy. A second edition of The Grand Question was published in 1682. English Short-Title Catalogue R19869.

        Neumarckt (Newmarkt in der Oberpfalz)

      Frankfurt 1680 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Germaniae” was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. “Topographia Germaniae” was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing’s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This engraving, "Neumarckt" measures 12.75" x 14.5" and is in excellent condition with light foxing, ink marking on the back of the top left corner and pencil marking on the lower right corner.

        De stolatae virginitatis jure lucubratio academica.

      Leiden, Joannes Lindanus, 1680. - 8vo. (12), 223, (5) pp. With woodcut printer's device to t. p. Contemp. calf with giltstamped label to prettily gilt spine (slightly rubbed). Leading edges gilt; marbled endpapers. First edition; rare. "One of his learned obsceneties" (cf. Bilder-Lexikon). Beverland (1650-1716), one of the most colourful figures of late 17th-century scholarship, had to leave Leiden University after creating a scandal hit with his treatise on original sin ("Peccatum originale", 1778). He proceeded to "live in England and write many pieces of filthy poetry" (cf. Rosenkranz, Hdb. einer allg. Geschichte der Poesie II, 30). An English translation was published in 1905 as "The Law Concerning Draped Virginity: An Academical Study". None of his works was banned by the Church, a fact which Reusch (II, 862) interprets as a sign of the increasingly desultory character of Roman censorship in the 18th century. - Front hinge beginning to split, otherwise a very appealing copy from the library of Armand Jules de Rohan (1695-1762), Duke and Archbishop of Reims (and uncle of Cardinal Rohan, notorious for the so-called Affair of the Diamond Necklace), with his engr. armorial bookplate on front pastedown.

      Imp. Rafael Figueró. Barcelona, 1680 - . 30,5 cm. [16], 688 pág., 1 h. de erratas. Ilustr. con 9 grabados calcográficos -en su mayoría escudos y blasones- por Bonaventura Fornaguera, dos de ellos fuera del texto. Enc. en piel gofrada, nervios, cortes dorados, cantos rodados y contracantos con rueda dorada. Presentado en petaca. Finísima señal de taladro restaurada entre las páginas 461 y 471. Pequeño cerco de antigua humedad en el margen de algunas hojas, sin afectar al texto. Anotaciones manuscritas antiguas en los márgenes de algunas páginas. Marca de anterior poseedor. * Los doce frutos a los que se refiere la obra son: antigüedad de la casa de Bournonville y genealogía; nobleza y alianzas; riquezas, estados y poder; letras y ciencias; santidad y virtud; fundaciones, limosnas y obras pías; servicios hechos a la fe católica y la iglesia romana; victorias y hazañas de guerra; trabajos padecidos y sangre derramada; puestos honrosos y méritos remunerados; acierto prudente y justo en los gobiernos; y elogios con que los sumos pontífices, emperadores y reyes califican y coronan a la casa, todo ello desde el siglo X y hasta mediados del XVII. Tal como consta al inicio, Casellas fue "Arcediano Mayor de la Santa Iglesia, y Maestrescuelas de la Real Universidad, y Estudios Generales de Lerida". Entre otras muchas anécdotas, el autor refiere una de 1619 en la que el duque, tras llegar a Bohemia con sus soldados, quiso reconocer las murallas de Pisca para adelantarse a los alemanes dirigidos por el conde Juan de Nassau y "contemplando con mucha atencion la situacion de los muros, y altura del fosso desde la ventana de una casa muy vezina, le dispararon desde una almena del muro un mosquetazo, cuya bala le atravesò la cara, le echò aperder un ojo, y passandole la boca le quitò algunos dientes, y saliò por la parte opuesta."

        The Information of Francisco de Faria, delivered at the Bar of the House of Commons, Munday, the First day of November, in the year of our Lord, 1680. Perused and Signed to be printed, according to the Order of the House of Commons, by me William Williams, Speaker. London, 1680

      Printed by the assigns of John Bill, Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills, printers to the Kings most excellent Majesty, London, Great Britain 1680 - Francisco de Faria was born to Jewish parents in Pernambuco, Brazil in 1653. His father, John de Faria, was born in St. Giles, Belgium. The information de Faria provides lent credence to canard of the so called Popish Plot, a supposed criminal Catholic endeavor to overturn the Protestant government of England. We learn from his testimony that de Faria was recruited as an agent in Antwerp, where he made the acquaintance of several English Catholics, who convinced him to travel to London where he became personal assistant to the Portuguese ambassador. Along with his brother Abraham, Francisco de Faria was subsequently hired by the Portuguese as an assassin. A tale of considerable intrigue and suspense. See AJHSP, Volume XX, pages 115-132 Cf.

        Historia della Republica veneta di Battista Nani, Cavaliere e procurator di San Marco, consetrata all’illustrissimo signor Conte Cornelio Pepoli

      In Bologna, per Gioseffo Longhi, [1680] - Un volume diviso in due tomi in-4°. I: pp. (8), 421, (23); II: pp. (8), 350, (54). Legatura in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso; tagli a spruzzo, qualche brunitura. Nel frontespizio lo stemma con lo scudo a scacchi del conte Pepoli; capilettera decorati, testatine xilografiche. Fitte annotazioni manoscritte nei primi due libri della seconda parte della stessa mano che corregge un errore di numerazione tra le pp. 277-284. Nella prima e seconda edizione, pubblicate entrambe da Combi e la Nou (1662, 1663), la storia del Nani, che parte dal 1613, arriva fino al 1644; «la terza impressione fatta dagli stessi Combi e la Nou nel 1676 e 1679 in due tomi in 4 progredisce la storia fino all’anno 1671; edizione che fu ripetuta una quarta volta da’ suddetti nel 1686, pur in 4, e che prima di quest’anno era stata ristampata in Bologna nel 1680 per Gioseffo Longhi» (Cicogna, 574). Nominato il 17 marzo 1652 storiografo ufficiale della Repubblica di Venezia, il Nani pubblica questa storia «ponderosa per mole, di vasto respiro stilistico nella costanza dei suoi toni alti lambita, talora, da una sin troppo tornita magniloquenza» (Benzoni, Storia della cultura veneta, IV/2, p. 73).

Complete series of designs for nicely ornamented chimney-pieces, in architectural style, with mirrors. A typical feature of two designs is the cornice of the frieze above the tablet, which is interrupted by a round medallion. The plates are irregularly numbered, as Francard included three (changed) plates from another series (see explanation of Kat. Orn. Berl.) Laurent Francart (flourished in Paris ca. 1681 - 1690), architect, ornament designer and painter, became Royal architect. The ornamentation of the portal of the Parisian Dôme des Invalides was made by him. - Small stain to two plates. The word 'cheminé' is added to 4 plates in contemporary handwriting.[(4462)] [Attributes: First Edition]
