Hamburg, Georg Wulff, 1685. (54), 218 pp., final blank. With engraved frontispiece. Contemporary vellum with handwritten spine title. Rare, early German edition of Tavernier's (1605-89) account of the Ottoman court drawn from his own observations. "The author's journey began in 1630. He went on a mission to Constantinople in 1636, or earlier. He states in the preface that much of his information regarding the seraglio was obtained from two former exployees of the Sultan, one a Frenchman, the other an italian, each of whom had served for many years" (Weber). The author also describes Ottoman ranks and court offices, as well as Ottoman coinage. - Bound after this is a very rare German edition of the widely received account of Islam provided by Juan Andrés, a converted Moor. First published in Spanish in 1515, it achieved immediate fame and was translated into many languages. "A crude anti-Islamic pamphlet by the Moor Abdallah, who took the Christian name of Johannes Andreas (Juan Andrés).

GREAT AND BLOODY NEWS]
[London] Printed by D.M. 1680. folio, 4pp., caption title, unbound as issued, a very good crisp copy with generous margins. Only printing (place of publication from Wing, printer's initials and publication date from colophon]. This was a high profile and infamous incident in which the Earl of Pembroke killed an innocent bystander with a thrust of his rapier while in a drunken rage. Pembroke was temporarily held at the Cock and Half Moon tavern, but his high status (and a bribe?) secured his release and he escaped trial or punishment. 'This exploit was done about twelve of the clock in the evening, and after his Lordship was let go, which was about one, it is said he made all speed for London .....'. Philip Herbert, 7th Earl of Pembroke (1652/3 - 1683), was by all accounts, a bit of a thug. Not only was he suspected of the murder of Sir Edmund Godfrey in 1678 but he was known to be subject to fits of homicidal mania. He was certainly guilty of several assaults which might well have ended in death, and in 1677 nearly killed a man in a duel. In the following year he was convicted of the manslaughter of Philip Rycault. In 1680 John Aubrey noted that Pembroke had at Wilton '52 mastives and 30 grey-hounds, some beares, and a lyon, and a matter of 60 fellowes more bestial than they'. He was eventually pardoned for the Smeeth murder and died at an early age in 1683.

Sigüenza y Góngora, Carlos de.
Por la viuda de Bernardo Calderon, 1680. Guillermo Tovar y de Teresa, the great historian of colonial Mexican art and printing, wrote that this work "es => el mas singular de todos los libros de 'Arcos Triunfales' impresos durante el virreinato. Su originalidad radica en no usar las fabulas e historias mitologicas de la antiguedad grecolatina -- en un clima de intenso humanismo -- las cuales destacaban el fuerte acento cultural occidental en las mentalidades barrocas de Mexico en el siglo XVII; Siguenza se valio de la historia antigua para senalar las virtudes de un principe, contenidas en los emperadores aztecas." He goes on to say that the structure erected by the city council of Mexico (i.e., cabildo) to welcome the new viceroy (Conde de Paredes) also incorporates Biblical Judeo-Christian and some other Old World elements, and thus presents the three main elements of NovoHispanic society: Europe, the Indigenous, and Catholicism. "Polymath" is the term most often applied to Sigüenza y Góngora (1645-1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he provides a detailed description of the wondrous Paredes "triumphal arch," including its siting in the city; its height, width, and ornamentation; a good physical description of it; and some details of the materials used in construction. In keeping with the style of celebration of the time, and with his own diverse interests, the volume also records the epigrams and poetry that were commissioned for and inscribed in the "arch."

ACUPUNCTURE SCROLL
Scroll on 14 joined sheets of paper (390 x 3550 mm.), with manuscript text & three large illus. [Japan: early Edo, ca. 1680-1700].A most handsome and well-colored acupuncture scroll consisting of text written in kanbun style and three large and fine acupuncture charts. These types of scrolls are very rare and are based on various texts which were introduced into Japan from China in the beginning of the 17th century. The chief source for the woodcuts is Dou's Shinkan Kotei meido kyukyo [trans.: The Yellow Emperor's Canon of Moxibustion], published several times in Japan in the first half of the 17th century. A rare collection of dissertations on moxibustion and acupuncture, this work is a commentary and explanation of the Ling-shu, written in about the second century BCE, which "formed [along with the Su Wen] the theoretical basis of classical Chinese medicine…the Ling-shu…discusses mainly therapy - mostly centered on medicinal prescriptions, but also including physical therapies such as bonesetting and breathing exercises, and stimulation treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion and massage."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, p. 85.

Cubero Sebastian, Pedro
Madrid, Juan Garcia Infaçon, 1680. 4to. (20), 360 pp. With the title page within a border of cast fleurons, woodcut arms of the dedicatee Charles II of Spain, and several woodcut initials and tailpieces. Modern gilt blue morocco by the leading Barcelona binder Emilio Brugalla (1901-87), also active in Madrid, signed at the foot of the front turn-in: "Brugalla 1946", with the arms of the Spanish bibliophile Isidoro Fernandez (1878-1963) stamped in gold on front and back in a blind-stamped panel, double fillets on binding edges and richly gold-tooled turn-ins, gilt edges. First edition of an interesting and detailed account of the first overland journey from Spain to the East Indies (1671-80) made by the Spanish missionary Sebastian Pedro Cubero. Interestingly, Cubero covered most of his route by land, as would later Careri, thus constantly being able to observe the customs, religions, ceremonies and costumes of the peoples he visited, describing them in considerable detail. After spending time in Italy, where he was appointed as a missionary to Asia and the East Indies, Cubero travelled by way of Istanbul and Moscow to Iran, visiting Isfahan ("Hispaham") and Bandar Abbas, after which he finally arrived in India. After crossing to Malacca he was imprisoned by the Dutch and later banished from the city. He then proceeded to the Philippines and ultimately, by way of Mexico, back to Europe. "After a stint as confessor in the imperial army in Hungary, Cubero became one of the notable travellers of the seventeenth century. What set him apart was the variety of his traveller's hats … [Click Below for Full Description]

PATIN CHARLES (Carlo Patino).
per Gio. Battista Pasquati, 1680. Cm. 23,5, pp. 91-113 (1). Con un fregio al frontespizio, alcune testate e figure di monete nel testo e tre interessanti tavole ripiegate fuori testo. Affascinante legatura del tempo in piena pergamena semirigida con piatti inquadrati da doppio filetto dorato e fregi agli angoli. Leggermente corto il margine superiore, peraltro bell'esemplare, in ottimo stato di conservazione e senza difetti alle tavole ripiegate (lavato?). Volume che celebra la ricorrenza in cui la città di Vicenza festeggia il Corpus Domini. Le prime due tavole raffigurano il carro allegorico ed il torneo nella splendida cornice di Piazza dei Signori; la terza illustra la "rua" o meglio la "ruota che si suol portare ogni anno in Vicenza nella solenne processione del Corpus Domini come era il 20. Giugno 1680". Tutte le bibliografie ormai concordano nell'affermare che, nonostante la paginazione dell'opera, quest'ultima possiede carattere assolutamente autonomo e fu stampata come estratto delle opere di Patin (prevalentemente di interesse medico). Cfr. Ruggieri 821 che presenta l'intera opera di Patin.

The second bound work, a treatise comparable in intention to the first, and well-suited to collective binding, is the first edition done into English of Bona’s guide to Christian conduct; the translation is attributed to Church of England clergyman and anti-Catholic writer Luke Beaulieu (1644/5-1723). .

He was the only son of Tsarevich Alexei Petrovich, son of Peter I of Russia by his first consort Eudoxia Lopukhina, and Princess Charlotte of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. An important event in the life of Peter II was his coronation. The event took place in Moscow on January 9, 1728, with the Emperor and a huge entourage. Still, he was disengaged from the affairs of state. Foreign witnesses proclaimed that ?All of Russia is in terrible disorder . money is not paid to anyone. God knows what will happen with finances. Everyone steals, as much as he can.? Moving the court and several other institutions from St. Petersburg back to Moscow was painful for the new capital, as well as the nobility forced to move with it, as Peter the Great had put much effort into developing St. Petersburg into a large and lively city at the time.Peter II returned to St. Petersburg from time to time, but continued an aimless life full of entertainment and distraction. He gradually fell under the ultimate influence of the Dolgorukovs ? Peter II became smitten with the 18-year-old beauty Ekaterina Alekseyevna Dolgorukova.

Manuscript in scroll. Upper Armenia, 1680. 13 meters 87 cm in length (42,9 ft). 9 cm in width (3,5 inch). Composed of 35 pieces glued together. Text written in one column. 31 illuminated miniatures, 44 ornamented book initials. The manuscript is complete. Tears and wears of the scroll, with minor marginal losses, generally scroll is preserved quite well, no recent restoration was done. Extraordinary survival. The tradition of hmail amulets in Armenian culture dates back to the 15th century (the earliest known example is from 1428). They were created in different parts of Armenia and were made for the travellers. Usually the scroll consisted of the prayers and spells with some elements of 'folk Christianity' as well. According to the major specialist in scrolls Davit Ghazaryan (Matenadaran, Scienti c Research Institute of Ancient Manuscripts named after Mesrop Mashtots, Yerevan, Armenia), who examined our manuscript, it was written in Bardzr Hajq in the Upper Armenia. Most probably the miniatures and text were done by the same person who signed his name in the colophon adding the date as well. The collophone translates: 'The book for protection was rewritten by the hand of sinful deakon Jakob, who is from the province Vorotna, from the village Aghuerdz. Amen. For enjoyment of Čianshah, Msrshah and Halapshah, the sons of khoja Paghtasar, who is from the province Arzrum, from the Papert city. It was written on 1129 of the Armenian era (=1680) on May 13'.

N.a.].
17th century. [ca. 1670-90), 1680. Very Good Armenian One piece of original hamayil, handwritten. Owner's name could not be read. With full of coloured miniatures depict Christian liturgy. Size is 180 x 10 cm. In Armenian. A good and clean copy. This pahpanak or hamayil (phylactery) consists of a collection of prayers, biblical texts and magical formulae, and was intended to act as an amulet to protect its owner (who wrote his name on it and carried it on his person) from all ills and dangers. As is the case with most phylacteries, this manuscript is illuminated with portraits of saints and scenes from the life of Christ. The manuscript is in the form of a long (approximately 180 x 10 cm) paper scroll written in one column. Two pieces of paper. This is first one. It begins with an illustration of Jesus Christ and 12 apostles with red, blue, brown, black, grey, and green colors. The second miniature follows, a depiction of the Crucifixion, with Mary and John standing at the foot of the cross. This is followed by a prayer to the Holy Cross of Christ, for preservation against all evil and the snare of the devil, and then by a writing concerning headache. Next one is Madonna and child in gold. Three roundels containing portraits and texts are next. The final miniature depicts the sacrifice scene with an angel and an apostle holding a sword. The scroll ends with prayer for travelers. It's written in a reticulated diaper pattern in black, with conventionalized blue and red flowers in the intervening spaces.

Première édition espagnole de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes par le militaire, diplomate et homme d'Etat espagnol Juan de Borja y Castro (1533-1606), fils de Saint François de Borgia. Parue en latin en 1581, l'édition originale avait vu le jour à Prague, où l'auteur était ambassadeur d'Espagne. L'ouvrage est richement illustré de 220 planches d'emblèmes gravées, en regard desquelles figurent des notices où sont explicitées les implications morales et philosophiques des emblèmes, dans une langue aux accents poétiques. Le frontispice et les emblèmes furent gravés par Richard Collin (1626-1687), graveur du roi Charles II d'Espagne à Bruxelles. "Juan de Borja fue el primero en España en publicar un libro de Empresas, cuando la ingeniosidad todavía no era el objetivo principal de la literatura. Él está en los inicios de un género -anteriormente muy difundido en Italia- que durante un siglo en España va a tener continuadores" (Bravo-Villasante) Brunissure généralisée du papier, plusieurs feuillets réparés sans manque.

BOYLE, Robert.
Oxford: Henry Hall for R. Davis and B. Took, 1680. First edition. Second edition in English (first, 1661), complete with the very rare advertisement leaf which is lacking from most copies, of this landmark in the history of science, "his most important work [where he] set down his corpuscular theory of the constitution of matter, which finally freed chemistry from the restrictions of the Greek concept of the four elements, and was the forerunner of Dalton's atomic theory" (Sparrow). "Boyle's most celebrated book is his Sceptical Chymist ... It contains the germs of many ideas elaborated by Boyle in his later publications" (Partington II, p. 496). The physicists, Boyle called them 'hermetick philosophers', upheld the Peripatetical or Aristotelian doctrine of the four elements - fire, air, earth, and water. The chemists, 'vulgar spagyrists', were disciples of Paracelsus who believed in the tria prima - salt, sulphur, and mercury. Boyle showed that both of these theories were totally inadequate to explain chemistry and was the first to give a satisfactory definition of an element. This second edition of the Sceptical Chymist contains the first printing of the second part, Experiments and Notes about the Producibleness of Chymical Principles. The first edition of the Sceptical Chymist hardly ever appears on the market and now commands a very high price - the last complete copy sold at auction realized £362,500 in 2015.

(8),480,(28, di Indici), con numerose xilografie a piena pagina che illustrano vari tagli di carne (polli, teste di vitelli, cinghiali, lepri, montoni, fagiani, e anche uccelli, pesci, crostacei) e modi di presentare i frutti. Questa celebre opera raccoglie, in 6 parti, i mestieri associati ad una grande cucina: “Le vray Maistre d'Hotel - Le Grand Ecuyer-Tranchant - Le Sommelier Royal - Le Confiturier Royal - Le Cuisinier Royal - Le Patissier Royal”. E proprio a questa caratteristica si deve il successo dell'opera, sebbene i sei trattati siano per lo più copiati da opere precedenti; tra le molte curiosità v'è anche un capitolo interamente dedicato all'arte di disporre e piegare i tovaglioli da tavola per conferire loro forme artistiche e curiose. L'autore di quest'opera importante ed esaustiva sull'arte di gestire una grande casa non è mai stato identificato. Si tratta, come si usava spesso a quei tempi, di una raccolta assemblata dall'editore Ribou, che era un libraio, ma non disdegnava di ristampare opere di grande successo, facili da smerciare. Cfr. Vicaire, p. 339/341 cita le numerose ediz. a partire dalla prima del 1662, sempre in forma anonima (fino al 1742) e precisa: “cet ouvrage a été souvent réimprimé et ses figures ont été souvent copiées.. en 1682 a été traduite en anglais.” Solo qualche lieve fiorit. altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

chez Jean Ribou, 1680. In-16 p (mm. 152x84), p. pelle mod., tit. oro al dorso, pp.num. (8),480,(28, di Indici), con numerose xilografie a piena pagina che illustrano vari tagli di carne (polli, teste di vitelli, cinghiali, lepri, montoni, fagiani, e anche uccelli, pesci, crostacei) e modi di presentare i frutti. Questa celebre opera raccoglie, in 6 parti, i mestieri associati ad una grande cucina: "Le vray Maistre d'Hotel - Le Grand Ecuyer-Tranchant - Le Sommelier Royal - Le Confiturier Royal - Le Cuisinier Royal - Le Patissier Royal". E proprio a questa caratteristica si deve il successo dell'opera, sebbene i sei trattati siano per lo più copiati da opere precedenti; tra le molte curiosità v'è anche un capitolo interamente dedicato all'arte di disporre e piegare i tovaglioli da tavola per conferire loro forme artistiche e curiose. L'autore di quest'opera importante ed esaustiva sull'arte di gestire una grande casa non è mai stato identificato. Si tratta, come si usava spesso a quei tempi, di una raccolta assemblata dall'editore Ribou, che era un libraio, ma non disdegnava di ristampare opere di grande successo, facili da smerciare. Cfr. Vicaire, p. 339/341 cita le numerose ediz. a partire dalla prima del 1662, sempre in forma anonima (fino al 1742) e precisa: "cet ouvrage a été souvent réimprimé et ses figures ont été souvent copiées.. en 1682 a été traduite en anglais." Solo qualche lieve fiorit. altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

DUVAL (nicolas)
Paris, N. Langlois, s.d. (1680). 212pp, 8pp. In-16 en plein maroquin grenat à doubles filets d'encadrement, dos à 5 nerfs daté 1680, larges dentelles intérieurs, gardes en soie moirée vert empire, tranches dorées. Ouvrage très agréable, coloris probablement postérieurs. Ex-libris Georges Huillet. Un prouesse typographique étonnante ayant nécessité l'exécution de 220 gravures sur cuivres afin de réaliser cet ouvrage entièrement écrit en caractères de civilité et dont presque toutes les pages intègrent des lettre historiées, des vignettes, culs de lampes, et importants ornements calligraphiques. Cette étonnante publication, une des plus rare du genre est ici intégralement rehaussé à l'aquarelle. L'auteur a signé son ouvrage dans la plaque à la dernière page "par Duval écrivain". On sait peut de choses de Nicolas Duval qui se dit "secrétaire ordinaire de la chambre du roy, demeurant à Versailles". S'agit il du même Duval qui publia en 1670 un livre d'écriture et d'orthographe? Il s'agirait dans ce cas d'un exercice de style de l'auteur artisan faisant montre de sa dextérité. Rare.

GROTIUS, Hugo,
Amsterdam (Amstelaedami), apud Janssonio-Waesbergios, 1680. Editio novissima. 8vo. Gestochener Titelkupfer und gestochene ganzseitige Justitia-Darstellung, Tb. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, 3 Bll., XX, 680 S., 7 Bll., 31 S., 5 Bll., 216 S., 54 Bll. Neuer gediegener Halblederband. Erstmals mit dem Kommentar von Gronovius! - Grotius (1583-1645) gilt als der eigentliche Begründer des modernen Natur- und Völkerrechts. Sein grundlegendes Werk, das ihn mit einem Schlag in ganz Europa berühmt gemacht hat, sind die "de iure belli ac pacis libri tres", mit welchem erstmals ein übernationales und überkonfessionelles Völkerrecht geschaffen worden ist. Das Völkerrecht wird von Grotius aus dem natürlichen Recht begründet und ist daher als allgemeine Rechtslehre formuliert. Dieses epochale Werk ist die erste systematische Darstellung des Völkerrechts. In Deutschland wurden Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts die ersten Lehrstühle für das Naturrecht eingerichtet. Bis zum Auftreten von Pufendorf wurden Vorlesungen fast ausnahmslos mit dem Werk von Grotius bestritten, die akademischen Übungen nahmen das Werk von Grotius durch. - Vgl. Ter Meulen/D. 582.
