         Varia Statum Politicum, Judicialem, et Oeconomicum Carnoliae Concernentia. Conscripta per Anonymum circa annum 1590. Descripta manu scribae, et famuli Joannis Ludovici Schönleben St. Theol. Doct. Proton. Ap.lici Archidiaconi Inf. Carn. Anno MDCLXXIX.

      [Probably Laibach, likely 1620s, with additions to 1681]. - Small folio (205 x 300 mm). German and Latin manuscript on paper. (2), 188 (but: 186, omitting 88); (15); (4), 25; (32); (9 blanks); 4 ff. (ca. 530 written pages). With a contemporary sanguine portrait of Emperor Leopold I on the front pastedown and a receipe for aloe pills, dated 1679, written on the lower. 17th century vellum. A collection of mainly German (and a few Latin) legal texts, assembled thus in the 1670s by the Carniolan protonotary apostolic and sometime Jesuit J. L. Schönleben. His title page (as quoted above) is followed by a single, frayed leaf of contents covering folios 1-62, so that at least two further leaves of contents may be assumed to be lacking at the beginning. This is followed by the first and earliest part of the collection, foliated to leaf 188 and written in an earlier 17th century hand, containing the common law of the Duchy of Carniola. Because this section incorporates large parts of the so-called Private-Law Treatises of Bernhard Walther (the "father of Austrian law" who in the mid-16th century collected the Lower Austrian customary law), the present manuscript served as an important source for Max Rintelen's 1937 edition of the Treatises (cf. references below). As a form of oath on f. 5r refers to Emperor Ferdinand II, this section can be dated to no earlier than 1620; occasional textual amendments in Schönleben's later hand suggest that it was closely studied by the scholar. - The remainder of the collection is written in a different single, later scribal hand, likely by an assistant of Schönleben's, containing copies of rare legal codes and mandates: "N. ainer Ersamen Landschafft in Crain verpesserte Landschrannen Ordnung" (copied from the book printed in Graz in 1565); "Neu-auffgerichte Bergkwerchs-Ordnung über all Eisen-, Pergk- und Hammerwerch deß Fürstenthumbs Crain" (copied from the book printed in Laibach in 1587, with a facsimile of the title page traced in ink on now browned translucent paper), various addenda ("Lebensberueff Formular", "Generale ratione ecclesiasticorum bonorum de dato 1. Januar 1587", "Cassatio privilegiorum a privatis concessorum"); a long collection of the decrees of the apostolic visitation of Laibach in 1621 (extracts of which were published in 1862 based on this MS; cf. below); the milling ordinances issues by Emperor Maximilian II in 1572; instructions issued to the verderer of Crain by Emperor Ferdinand III in 1650, and numerous similar mandates mostly issued in the 17th century (but also including a Papal bull from 1122). The end is brought up by the copy of a communication of a Laibach Capuchin monk concerning the traditional Good Friday penance procession (dated 1 June 1681), a tax list for 1633-75, and a curious, extensive and apparently unpublished polemical version of the Lord's Prayer levelled against the King of Sweden ("Des Khinigs in Schwöden Vatter Unser"), juxtaposed line for line with the received text of the prayer: "Ach Khinig du khanst noch nicht recht betten / Ich glaub nit daß auf Erden Einmall / Ein solcher Khirchenrauber gewesen sey alß / Du stilst, raubst, bringst mir schaden [.]". - Provenance: 1) autograph ownership of the Carniolan jurist and historian Johann Gregor Thalnitscher von Thalberg (Dolnitscher, in Slovene: Janez Gregor Dolnicar, 1655-1719), dated 1679, on the pastedown, and his printed bookplate, dated 1680, on the title page. Thalnitscher, who obviously received the book during Schönleben's lifetime, has been called "the spirit of cultural rebirth in the Baroque in Ljubljana". He was keenly interested in the arts, and it is likely that the gifted portrait of Emperor Leopold I (here called "Semper Augustus Princeps Carniolae") under his handwritten ownership is his own work. 2) Private collection of Baron Anton Codelli (fl. 1850s), director of the Historical Society for Carniola. 3) Acquired by the Historical Society for Carniola from Codelli in 1856. 4) Traded to the Austrian legal historian and numismatist Arnold Luschin

         Musaeum Regalis Societatis, or a Catalogue and Description

      1681 - GREW, Nehemiah. Musaeum Regalis Societatis, or a Catalogue and Description of the Natural and Artificial Rarities Belonging to the Royal Society Whereunto is Subjoyned the Comparative Anatomy of Stomachs and Guts. London: Rawlins, 1681. Folio, contemporary paneled speckled calf rebacked, black morocco spine label, raised bands. $2500.First edition, illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Sir Daniel Colwall, founder of the Royal Society Museum, and 31 striking plates (one folding) bound at rear.The clergyman, botanist and anatomist Nehemiah Grew compiled this "great illustrated catalogue" during his tenure as Secretary of the Royal Society (Garrison & Morton 297). Included here are descriptions and plates of plant, animal, mineral and fossil "rarities" collected on various travels and explorations and acquired by the Royal Society. Part I, for example, discusses "Human Rarities," and begins with a description of an Egyptian mummy. "Grew’s Comparative Anatomy of Stomachs and Guts forms the appendix to his catalogue of the objects in the museum of the Royal Society; its publication marks the earliest usage of the term ‘comparative anatomy on the title page of a zoological work. The appendix represents the first comparative study of a single system of organs: Grew investigated the alimentary canals of birds, fish and various mammals, classifying the last group according to the anatomical and physiological criteria drawn from his investigations" (Norman 945). "The first attempt to deal with one system of organs only by the comparative method" (GM 297). The last nine plates illustrate the Comparative Anatomy. The present work was published at a particularly productive and important time for Grew; his magnum opus, The Anatomy of Plants followed a year later in 1682. Cole, History of Comparative Anatomy, 245-251. Owner signature, small marginal inkstamp, a few early ink corrections and marginal notations.Minor paper repair to frontispiece. Text and plates generally quite clean. A bit of light age-wear to contemporary boards; corners restored. An extremely good and handsome copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

Lapponia, Norvegia Suecia, Dania, Polonia, Maximaeque partes Germaniae, Tartariae, Turcici Imperii, aliaeque Regiones adjacentes simul ostenduntur; de novo correcta et edita". Kopergravure uitgegeven door Nicolaes Visscher II als onderdeel van de ?Atlas Minor?? na 1681. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 41,5 x 52,5 cm.Uitgevershuis Visscher kwam op toen Claes Jansz. Visscher rond 1608 begon met het versieren van de kaarten van Willem Blaeu en Jodocus Hondius. De uitgeverij zou onder zijn zoon Nicolaes I en kleinzoon Nicolaes II (1649-1702) uitgroeien tot een van de belangrijkste uitgevers van kaarten, plattegronden, stadsgezichten en prenten.Visschers Atlas Minor was niet zo klein als gelijknamige atlassen uit die tijd. De uitgave was op folio-formaat en bevatte tussen de 60 en 150 kaarten. Nicolaes II kreeg steeds meer kaarten van eigen fabricage tot zijn beschikking en werd minder afhankelijk van de vroegere werken van vader en grootvader. Verouderde Visscher kaarten werden in 1684 bij opbod verkocht.De kennis over Rusland in de 17de eeuw voert terug naar Isaac Massa (1585-1643?), een Haarlemse graanhandelaar en de eerste Nederlandse diplomaat aan het Kremlin. Massa verzamelde gegevens van Russische ontdekkingsreizigers waarvan hij verschillende kaarten maakte. Massa?s weergave van de Siberische kust betekende een enorme sprong voorwaarts in geografische kennis en was tientallen jaren de enige kaart van het gebied. De kaart werd gekopieerd door Nederlandse uitgevers als Mercator, Hondius, Janssonius en Blaeu.Prijs: ?1.250,-.

         Relation nouvelle d'un voyage de Constantinople. Enrichie de plans levez par l'auteur sur les lieux, & des figures de tout ce qu'il y a de plus remarquable dans cette ville. Présentée au Roy.

      Paris, veuve de Damien Foucault 1681 - in-12, [6] ff. n. ch.

Seconde édition, rare. Cette importante relation semble bien être la première à comporter des élévations et des plans précis des principaux monuments de Constantinople, dont Sainte-Sophie. Le dessinateur Grelot (vers 1630 - après 1680), originaire de Melun, vécut en effet à Constantinople avant d'accompagner Chardin dans son voyage en Perse en 1672, puis le voyageur italien Ambrosio Bembo ; pour l'un et pour l'autre, il réalisa des dessins et des vues du parcours. Déguisé en indigène, il avait obtenu un accès facile aux mosquées, et ses dessins en acquièrent toute leur valeur : ils constituent la première représentation sérieuse de ces monuments. Il était revenu en France en 1675. Blackmer 750. Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Miscellaneous Poems.

      London: for Robert Boulter, 1681 - Folio (292 x 191 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep, gilt supralibros of the Society of Writers to the Signet on both covers, smooth spine, lettering-piece. Housed in a red flat back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery Bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Spine rubbed and chipped at ends, last few leaves mottled, a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece portrait, title within double-ruled border, printer's woodcut device on title-page (McKerrow 195); the 16 leaves containing the three poems on Cromwell (R2–T1, U2–4, and X2) cancelled as usual. First edition, including first printings of, among others, "To his Coy Mistress" and "The Garden". The publisher Boulter was one of the original publishers of Paradise Lost, who that summer was to be arrested for predicting the imminent fall of the monarchy. Published a couple of years after Marvell's death, the volume made his poetic talents known to a general readership who would have known him, if at all, only from his commendatory verses to the second edition (1674) of Milton's epic, and perhaps from some satires, thus rescuing from obscurity one of the major English lyricists of the seventeenth century. "Failure of nerve during a temporary crisis in Whig fortunes had led to excision of the three Cromwell pieces before sale from almost all known copies of the work" (ODNB); only two copies, both imperfect, are known with them.

         1681 FOLIO Works of Abraham Cowley English Poetry Mistress Motto Pindar Davideis

      London : Printed by J.M. for Henry Herringman ., 1681. - 1681 FOLIO Works of Abraham Cowley English Poetry Mistress Motto Pindar Davideis “What shall I do to be for ever known, And make the Age to come own?” I shall like beasts or common people die, Unless you write my elegy.” – Abraham Cowley, The Motto Abraham Cowley was one of the leading English poets during the 17th-century. This charming, and rare, sixth edition was the last edition of the original one volume printing. Following this edition, the works were printed in multiple volumes. Famous poems, such as ‘The Mistress,’ ‘The Motto,’ ‘Ode to Pindar,’ and ‘Davideis’ are all included in this collection. The Pindaric Ode is especially interesting in that Cowley attempted to reproduce Pindar’s works, but in doing so, he misinterpreted the metrical patterns, and, in doing so, did not accurately reflect Pindar’s poetry. He did, however, create one of the most famous odes ever written, which would become the influence for William Wordsworth’s famous ode “Intimations of Immortality.” Item number: #1087 Price: $599 COWLEY, Abraham The works of Mr. Abraham Cowley : consisting of those which were formerly printed and those which be design'd for the press, now published out of the authors original copies.

Inscriptions opposite title pages in vol. 1 & 2 reads: ‚Dr. Gilbert Burnet gave me this book June the 4 (the year of the lord) 1683'. Gilbert Burnet (18 September 1643 - 17 March 1715) was a Scottish philosopher and historian, and Bishop of Salisbury. He was fluent in Dutch, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. Burnet was highly respected as a cleric, a preacher, an academic, a writer and a historian. He was always closely associated with the Whig party, and was one of the few close friends in whom King William III confided. In the mid-1670s, a French translation of Nicholas Sanders' De origine et progressu schismatio Anglicani libri tres (1585) appeared. Sanders attacked the English Reformation as a political act carried on by a corrupt king. Several of Burnet's friends wished him to publish a rebuttal of the work, so in 1679 his first volume of The History of the Reformation of the Church of England was published. This covered the reign of Henry VIII; the second volume (1681) covered the reign of Elizabeth and the Elizabethan Religious Settlement; the third volume (1715) consisted of corrections and additional material. His literary reputation was greatly enhanced by this publication. The Parliament of England voted thanks for Burnet after the publication of the first volume, and in 1680 the University of Oxford awarded Burnet the degree of Doctor of Divinity on the advice of William Sancroft, Archbishop of Canterbury. For over a century this was the standard reference work in the field, although Catholics disputed some of its content. (Wikipedia)
