      London: Printed by S Roycroft for Robert Clavel at the Peacock, 1681. [a2-a6]+[b-b7]+[c-c7]+[d-231]+[5] pages. Small square octavo (7 ¾" x 6 ¼") bound in full leather.  Second edition. Thomas Barlow (1607-1691) was an English academic and clergyman, who became Provost of The Queen's College, Oxford and Bishop of Lincoln. He was considered, in his own times and by Edmund Venables writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, to have been a trimmer, a reputation mixed in with his academic and other writings on casuistry. His views were in fact Calvinist and strongly anti-Catholic, and he was one of the last English bishops to identify the Pope as the Antichrist He worked in the 1660s for the 'comprehension' of nonconformists, but supported the crackdown of the mid-1680s; and declared loyalty to James II of England on his accession, having strongly supported the Exclusion Bill which would have denied the Catholic James the succession. Pope Pius V's response to Queen Elizabeth I of England assuming governance of the Church of England included support of the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots, and her supporters in their attempts to take over England "ex turpissima muliebris libidinis servitute". A brief English Catholic uprising, the Rising of the North, had just failed. Pius then issued a bull, Regnans in Excelsis, dated April 27, 1570, that declared Elizabeth I a heretic and released her subjects from their allegiance to her. In response, Elizabeth, who had thus far tolerated Catholic worship in private, now actively started persecuting them. Condition:  Original bards with new period spine and red label with gilt lettering to spine corners rubbed and bumped else a good to very good copy.

        Miscellaneous Poems.

      Folio. Contemporary blind stamp panelled sheep, recently rebacked by Bernard Middleton, spine with leather label lettered in gilt. Pp. Engraved portrait frontispiece, [iv] 1-116, 131-139. Some scuffing to boards, rubbing to edges and corners, a few small old worm holes in lower gutters, some paper repairs by Bernard Middleton, a little light browning and a few occasional light spots, otherwise a very good copy, preserved in custom made fleece-lined cloth box lettered in gilt on spine and upper board. First edition, without the Cromwellian verses as usual (pp.117-130). One of the great collections of English poetry. Miscellaneous Poems was sent to the press by 'Mary Marvell' (Mary Palmer, Marvell's housekeeper) who claimed that she was Marvell's widow. The volume 'includes religio-philosophical dialogues; verses on the pleasures (both sensuous and spiritual) of the retired life in pastoral surroundings; poems that depict innocence on the verge of sexual maturity; love lyrics, from the classic persuasion of 'To his Coy Mistress' to the dark complaint of 'The Unfortunate Lover'; and some Latin epigrams and epitaphs. Almost the only public response to such late-appearing metaphysical poems is Wood's grudging statement that the volume was 'cried up as excellent' by those of the author's own persuasion (Wood, Ath. Oxon., 4.232)' (W. H. Kelliher in ODNB). In all but two known copies, (Dobell-Thorn Drury- British Library and Huntington) three long poems in praise of Cromwell are suppressed by the cancellation of 13 leaves.

        ADVICE TO A FRIEND By Simon Patrick, D.D. Chaplain in Ordinary to His Majesty. The Fourth Edition.

      [16], 268, [4 ad's] pages. Full sheep, label to spine. 12mo. Spine expertly repaired, but binding generally rubbed and worn; else very good. Mary Ann Kilner's copy with her signature to endpaper, the author of many 18th century classic children's books, including, Memoirs of a Peg-Top, Jemima Placid, and The Adventures of a Pincushion. An inscription on the front endpaper in her hand reads: 'Exchanged Books with Mrs Worst at her request, June 19. 1813.' Another inscription on verso of same endpaper; 'E. and D Kilner Left to them by their Beloved Mary Ann when on her Death bed September 1816.' Loosely laid into the book is a note which reads, 'Advice to a Friend Simon Patrick D D written in 1673. 4th Edition 1681. Belonged first to Mrs Worst, then to M. A. Kilner. Then to E. & D. Kilner.' Mary Ann Kilner did not die until 1831, so the inscription by E. and D. Kilner is a little confusing. However. Mary Ann's signature is genuine, as is her inscription. The identity of E. & D. Kilner, could be her sister-in-law Dorothy who survived her by five years, and her daughter Eliza. Purchased from a descendent of the Kilner family.

        3 signed autograph letters to Theodorus Janssonius van Almeloveen, 2 by De Heide and 1 by Altius]. Middelburg, 2 October 1681, 31 August [1681/87]; Harderwijk, 6 May 1697. 4to (20×16 & 21×16.5 cm). The 2nd and 3rd each with most of the writer's red wax heraldic seal and the 1st with a shadow of a lost seal.

      - Three signed autograph letters mostly discussing medical matters, the first written on 2 October 1681 beginning with comments about Antoni van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723) and his recent discovery of blood cells. All three letters were written to the physician Theodorus Janssonius van Almeloveen (1657-1712), the first two from the physician and medical researcher Anton de Heide and the third from the Dutch Reformed preacher Robertus Altius (ca. 1650?-1699). De Heide and Van Almeloveen were leading physicians of their day and De Heide published works that included information about blood and blood circulation in the years 1682 to 1686. After the comments about Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, De Heide goes on to discuss other medical matters, referring to the Dutch-born court physician at Berlin Cornelis Bontekoe (ca. 1645?-1685) and the London scientist and founder of modern chemistry Robert Boyle (1627-1691).The second letter begins with references to the surveying of a river on Walcheren, then still an island, where De Heide lived in the city of Middelburg. It goes on to discuss medical matters, including the spread of an animal epidemic from Germany to the Netherlands. He also refers to the classical Greek physician Rufus Ephesius (active ca. 100 AD).Altius's rather chatty letter refers to Cleopatra's banquet and to Hercules.De Heide's 1681 letter discussing Van Leeuwenhoek is in very good condition and his other letter (of 1681/87) is also very good except that it has a small stain affecting but not obscuring a few words and is somewhat dirty. The 1697 letter is browned and has some tears along the fold. Three signed autograph letters related to medicine, one with a discussion of Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and his new discovery of blood cells.

        Tacheographie ou l'art d'escrire aussi vite qu'on parle

      65, (1 bl.), 82 pp. Paris, chez l'auteur, 1681, in-12, 65, (1 bl.), 82 pp. (nombreuses erreurs de pagination), maroquin lie de vin avec un encadrement doré à la Du Seuil sur les plats, dos à 4 nerfs orné, tranche de tête cirée, gardes renouvelés, Première édition française de ce rare traité de sténographie, le second paru en France, après celui du prêtre Jacques Cossard, publié à Paris en 1651. La "Tacheographie" qui signifie "écrire rapidement" et que l'on connait aujourd'hui sous le nom de sténographie (écrire serré) connut un important développement en Angleterre au cours du XVIIe siècle. Charles-Aloysius Ramsay, un écossais expatrié à la cour de France (l'ouvrage est dédié à Louis XIV et vendu chez l'auteur à Paris), propose une synthèse et une simplification des méthodes anglo-saxonnes et des grands traités de sténographie anglais : Bright, Shelton et Willis, par exemple. En effet, avec ce traité, l'auteur réussit un tour de force de concision puisqu'en 40 pages et deux planches dépliantes, il enseigne "l'alphabet tacheographique", ses particularités et ses difficultés d'emploi. 2 planches repliées hors-texte présentent, en 6 tableaux, plus de 200 exemples de lettres simples, doubles ou triples, ainsi que des exemples de différents sons complexes ou de mots entiers. Sur la première garde, l'ex-libris imprimé et daté de 1956 de la bibliothèque Ferreira Lima, localisée à Rio de Janeiro. Ouvrage assez grand de marges pour un format in-12 et à l'intérieur propre. Brunet IV, 1097.

In de tijd 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: € 950,-.

        Manuscript on paper. In Spanish. "Resumen de d[e]r[ech]os tocantes a los Yndios, sobre su reduccion.

      Because Spanish colonial-era laws concerning Indians were numerous and published in the unwieldy Recopilacion de leyes de los reynos de Indias (5 vols., 1681 with subsequent revisions and editions) and authoritatively interpreted in Solorzano Pereira's also hefty Politica indiana (2 vols., 1648 and later editions), lawyers and judges often resorted to reducing the laws most relevant to their own work to a manuscript epitome, i.e., a booklet offering an abstract of each chosen law with its proper citation to either the Recopilacion or to Politica indiana when the full law or interpretation might be wanted.THIS IS JUST SUCH A WORKING EPITOME, and that it speaks both to laws relating to Indians generally and, as per its title, to => laws relating specifically to Indians settled in reducciones helps to localize it. In regions where the indigenous populations were sedentary (e.g., Mexico, Guatemala, central Peru) there was no need to force them into "reducciones" (essentially, created communities with a high degree of "townness"); but in places were the natives were nomadic (e.g., Paraguay, and some jungle regions of the Viceroyalty of Peru} enforced resettlement was the norm.Whether the Indians within the ken of this law practice were sedentary or "resettled" or still trying to be nomadic, they were to enjoy numerous privileges and exemptions and also were prohibited from doing certain things. The first chapter headings here are a good summary of these privileges, exemptions, and prohibitions: "On the treatment of Indians," "Personal service," "Privileges in legal matters," and "On criminal behavior." A second section of the manuscript, in a different hand, offers chapters titled "On the service of Indians," "On the privileges that the Indians enjoy because of their status as miserables [i.e., a Roman law term for certain categories of individuals]," "On conducting legal proceedings against Indians," and "Other privileges granted to the Indians." The many dozens of laws recited here sketch the legal parameters of Indian life under Spain: the requirement of fixed addresses, the ban on white and black residents in the Indian reducciones, bans on polygamy and wine, whippings for those who move to another settlement without permission, and more. We assign the manuscript's place of composition to the viceroyalty of Peru because in the period to 1776 it included regions were there were reducciones, whereas there were none in the viceroyalty of Mexico.

      - Engraved vignette on title & another - emblematic - vignette on final leaf of Vol. II. 2 p.l., 646 pp., one leaf with the Barberini arms, otherwise blank; 2 p.l., 596 pp. Two vols. Folio, cont. vellum over boards. Rome: Typis Barberinis, Excudebat M. Hercules, 1681. The rare catalogue of the vast library created by the enormously rich Cardinal Francesco Barberini (1597-1679), a great patron of the arts due to his status as one of the chief beneficiaries of the exorbitant nepotism practiced by his uncle Pope Urban VIII. The cardinal built a rich library at the Palazzo Barberini which included ancient Greek and Roman manuscripts, and he supported numerous European intellectuals, scholars, scientists and artists including Jean Morin, Gabriel Naudé, Gerhard Johann Vossius, Heinsius and John Milton. "The Barberini library, which was catalogued in 1681 (the catalogue of manuscripts that was to form the third volume was never published), remained in private hands until 1902, when it passed into the Vatican library. Such acquisitions of private libraries by institutions are especially characteristic of Italian library history. The Barberini catalogue has enjoyed a special importance because it is a rather early and very large book and appears to have been widely circulated."-Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 23. Taylor describes this catalogue as "virtually unobtainable" (p. 228) and considers it an important work in bibliographical history (p. 129). The catalogue is alphabetically arranged and contains more than 60,000 books. Barberini's catalogue was for many years one of the principal bibliographical reference works at the disposal of scholars, second in rank only to Thomas Hyde's third catalogue of the Bodleian Library (1674) with which it shared the then revolutionary alphabetical arrangement under the authors' surnames, but was richer in books printed in Italy. This catalogue is truly rare on the market. A very fine set. ? Ottino & Fumagalli 3701. Peignot, p. 79. Pollard & Ehrman, pp. 262 & 263. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Derrota desde España a la Aguada de San Juan de Puerto Rico.

      - How to sail in the Caribbean in the 18th century, a remarkable manuscript Derrotero for Puerto Rico, Havana, and other American ports. N.d. [early 18th century]. In 4to (232 mm x 178 mm). 1 [blank] + 68 ff. + 2 [blank]. Contemporary mottled calf, most likely Spanish, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, rubbed, joints worn and some worm damage, entirely genuine condition. Besides scattered foxing and occasional oxidation on the ink, in excellent condition. 28,000 $ An exceptional Spanish manuscript Derrotero, or a sailing guide, to the Caribbean Seas, for the Carrera de Indias; derroteros such as this were designed for pilots navigating ships in Spain’s trade with its transatlantic empire dominated by the Spanish treasure fleets from Peru and New Spain. Such manuscripts were considered objects of major importance, and thus worthy of the outmost secretive measures, in particular because of the greatest fear in open seas, piracy. The need for secrecy can be explained as the Derrotero includes the routes to be followed back and forth from Spanish possessions in the Caribbean, it would clearly be an invaluable asset for any adventurer in pursue of the treasure galleons. Inconspicuously bound with no indication of the contents, this volume contained instructions vital to pilots sailing to the Americas but which the Spanish had a vested interest in not publicizing to other European powers; in fact, such manuscripts were considered objects of major importance, invaluable assets for any adventurer in pursue of the treasure galleons, and thus worthy of the outmost secretive measures. Pilots, trained and examined in Seville first by the Casa de Contratación and, from 1681, at the Colegio de San Telmo, would have been provided with sailing instructions copied from older examples like this Derrotero. The great quantities of treasure transported on the Carrera de Indias route represented an attractive prize for Spain’s rivals as well as pirates and privateers making the information contained in this Derrotero in itself a lucrative prize. For this reason, sailing instructions were not put into print, they were circulated in manuscript form but in as confidential a manner as possible and, if there was a danger of them falling into the wrong hands such as by a ship being captured, pilots and officers were instructed to destroy them. Today, as a result, examples such as this are very rare. The derrotero begins with the “Derrota desde España a la Aguada de San Juan de Puerto Rico”; other sub-titles in the work are “Conocimiento desde Tampico hasta San Juan de Ulua por la Costa”, “Derrota de la Vera Cruz a la Habana”, “Derrota de Yslas de Canarias para la Costa de Tierra Firme y Rio de Orinoco, e Yslas de la Trinidad, hasta Maracaybo por la Costa”, “Descripcion de la Costa de la Ysla de Cuba, desde el Cabo S Antonio, hasta el Puerto de la Habana”, “Entrada en el Puerto de Santa Marta”. In 41 sections it outlines the Carrera de India’s routes, ports and anchorages, describing their geographical features and their potential dangers. It begins at Cadiz in Spain, from where all Spain’s transatlantic trade had to sail for the Americas before the Free Trade Acts of 1765 and 1778, and traces the course to Puerto Rico. From Puerto Rico, it describes the routes to either Cartagena de Indias or Portobello, from where the silver and produce from Peru was embarked, or to Veracruz, from where that from New Spain and the Manila Galleon was loaded. It then gives instructions on getting from both Veracruz and Cartagena de Indias to Havana where the fleets met before sailing together, as described by this derrotero, across the Atlantic on their return to Cadiz. In addition to these two main routes, it also gives sailing instructions for other ports frequented by Spanish trade, namely Buenos Aires in present day Argentina and Maracaibo in Venezuela, as well as instructions for sailing from Havana to any of these ports, which required complicated m [Attributes: Hard Cover]
