        "Historical applications, and occasional meditations upon several subjects. Newly reprinted with additions, being the third impression ... Written by a person of honour"

      London: printed by M. Flesher for R. Royston. 1680. "8vo, pp. [16], 172; genuine blank A1 preserved but without the terminal advertisement leaf; full contemporary calf; spine largely perished, cords holding and the binding is sound.& & Presentation copy, inscribed beneath 'Written by a person of honour': ""Ex dono Authoris"" and in another hand, ""E. of Berkly [sic].""& & ""He published in 1668 a religious work entitled ‘Historical Applications and Occasional Meditations’ to which Waller has given a kind of immortality by eleven couplets of rather neatly worded and not particularly fulsome praise, beginning 'Bold is the man that dares engage / For piety in such an age.' The design of the work appears to have been to illustrate the value of religion from the recorded experience of distinguished men. A second edition appeared in 1670, and a third with amplifications in 1680. Wood, who, on the strength of this book and an address to the Levant Company published in 1681, includes the earl in the ‘Athenæ Oxonienses,’ states that in a certain auction catalogue it appeared under the quaintly unctuous title ‘Divine Breathings, or Soul Thirstings after Christ.’ & & Lowndes I, 160 (citing the second edition of 1670): ""A little book valuable for its merit as well as its rarity..."""

        Domini Ultraiectini Tabula Auctore Frederico de Wit Amsterodami (map of Utrecht province) Dominii

      - Amsterdam, niet gedateerd (ca. 1680). ca. 62 x 53 cm. Mooie kaart van de provincie Utrecht, met het noorden rechtsonder. Handgekleurd, met gekleurde cartouche linksboven en rechtsonder de gegevens van de Wit: "tot Amsterdam by Frederick de Wit inden Calverstraat by den Dam inde Witte Pascaert". Zeldzame staat: deze versie heeft een andere Cartouche linksboven, met een bisschop die een kerktoren (de dom?) vasthoudt, engelen en een wapenschild. Rechtsonder is geen cartouche. De meeste varianten hebben linksboven en rechtsonder een cartouche, die gekopieerd zijn van Visscher. Deze versie is misschien vroeger (?) en zou dan kunnen dateren rond 1670, toen de Wit de eerste versie van zijn "Nieut Kaartboeck" publiceerde, waar deze kaart in voorkwam. Deze cartouche met de bisschop is later gekopieerd door Danckerts, maar in de versie van de Wit zeldzaam. Goede conditie, enkele scheuren op de vouwen professioneel gerestaureerd. Toont het gebied tussen Amsterdam, Amersfoort, Culemborg en Oudewater. Getoonde steden zijn naast de genoemde ondermeer Woerden, Naarden, Muiden, Buren, Utrecht, Ijsselstein, Asperen, Schoonhoven. Nice early map of Utrecht province, oriented west at the top. VG condition, original colouring (including cartouche); some professionally repaired tears on folds. Koeman Wit 25.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Salzburg (Austria)

      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, "Salzburg" measures 12.75" x 15.75" and is in very good condition with light pencil markings on the lower right corner and ink mark on the back of the top left corner. This engraving details the city, wrapping along the Salzach River. Noted on this map are the Kapuzinerberg Hills on the eastern bank of the river, as well as numerous churches, monasteries and residences. Salzburg, meaning "Salt Castle" derives its name from the barges carrying salt on the Salzach River. In the 14th century Salzburg gained independence from Bavaria. This map is highly detailed and gives interesting views of the city of Salzburg, fortress and surrounding lands and includes a decorative compass and version of the city crest.
