      1681. Fine. MOYENS SURS & HONESTES POUR LA CONVERSION DE TOUS LES HERETIQUES, et Avis et Expediens salutaires pour la Reformation de l'Eglise. Cologne, Pierre Marteau, 1681. 12mo. Two volumes bound as one. [xl]330[2]249[3]pp. First edition. A thoughtful and lengthy argument that all that is evil in the Church, such as the Inquisition, simony, and clerical misbehaviour, comes from the Papacy and the Cardinals, the solution being to abolish the Papacy, returning the Church to its original and scriptural simplicity. According to the "Avertisement" at the end, the manuscript was unfinished due to the ill-health of the anonymous author, an "homme de qualite et scavant." Pierre Marteau is a fictitious publishing house, never located in Cologne or anywhere else, providing a name under which French, German, and Dutch printers could disseminate controversial or pornographic books from 1660 to the late 18th century. Other Pierre Marteau titles tend to be anticlerical, politically inflammatory or scandalous. (Brunet: Imprimeurs Imaginaires.) The Dictionnaire des Ouvrages Anonymes states that it has so far been impossible to identify the author. Contemporary calf, spine gilt in five compartments. marbled edges. Wear to edges; small chips to spine. Internally fine. Scarce.

Owner's signature of Lucy Fortescue Lyttleton, daughter of Hugh Fortescue, and spouse of George, first Baron Lyttelton. Lucy died in 1747, aged 29. There is a portrait of her by John M. Williams. Henry Foulis became a sub-rector of Lincoln College in 1667. He was warmly attached to the church of England, and attacked with equal venom by the Presbyterians and papists. His death in 1669 was 'occasioned by a generous and good-natured intemperance'. This volume was his second book. The delay in publication after his death was caused by a 'knavish bookseller'. Notes for other works were burnt by Foulis on his deathbed. Anthony a Wood was an intimate friend, responsible for the quotes above, and also made a catalogue of Foulis's library.

Le tavole sono quelle che erano comparse nei Principia philosophiae del 1644.Cartesio, nato a La Haye en Touraine nel 1596, fu educato dai gesuiti e dopo gli studi in legge, invece di dedicarsi alla giurisprudenza, iniziò la carriera militare. Avvicinatosi alla ricerca scientifica estese il metodo matematico-quantitativo a tutti i campi del sapere, pose al centro di ogni ricerca il dubbio metodico che deve portare al sapere, la ragione che applicata in ogni campo può permettere il progresso in ogni ramo dello scibile. Il "Cogito ergo sum" che compare nel Discorso sul metodo edito nel 1637 segna infatti la nascita della scienza moderna e costituisce, spiegando la sua filosofia, la premessa ai trattati scientifici che aveva composto nel periodo del suo soggiorno in Olanda, e che studiavano l’ottica, le meteore e la geometria. La sua filosofia fu condannata dall’Università di Utrecht nel 1643, ma l’anno seguente pubblica in latino i Principia philosophiae ed inizia la corrispondenza con la principessa Elisabeth, primogenita di Federico re di Boemia, conte Palatino ed Elettore, con la quale ebbe fra il 1643 ed il 1649 uno scambio su questioni filosofiche e matematiche ed alla quale era dedicata anche quest’opera, apparsa in francese per la prima volta ne 1647. Nel 1649 andò in Svezia chiamato dalla regina Cristina, ma morì nel 1650.

      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.

        The Unequal Match or, Mary of Anjou Queen of Majorca: an Historical Novel

      - London -R. Bentley 1681 - The extremely rare first edition of the English translation of Jean de la Chapelle's historical novel. The title page lists this as being 'the second and last part', dated1683 only, however, the pagination and further titlesindicate that it contains both the first part of 1681 and the second and thirdparts of 1683. 'Printed for R. Bentley, at the Post-House in Russel-Street, near the Piazza in Covent-Garden'. With a publisher's catalogue to the rear of 'Plays printed for R. Bentley'. Jean de La Chapelle (24 October 1651 - 29 May 1723) was a French writer and dramatist. A minor nobleman, the nephew of Boileau, his literary talents made him stand out to the Prince of Conti to whom he became a private secretary in 1678. Marie of Anjou (14 October 1404 29 November 1463) was the Queen consort of King Charles VII of France from 1422 to 1461. Marie was the eldest daughter of Louis II of Anjou, titular King of Naples, titular King of Sicily, and Yolande of Aragon, titular Queen of Aragon. She married her second cousin King Charles VII in April 1422 at Bourges and became Queen consort of Charles, although Charles himself was not crowned King until 17 July 1429 at Reims, following the successful endeavors of Joan of Arc in expelling the English from most of France. Her husband's victory in the Hundred Years War owed a great deal to the support he received from Marie's family, notably from her mother Yolande of Aragon. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally sound, although rubbed, with marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are age-toned with some mild damp staining. There is slight loss to the title page, and significant loss to page 1, affecting a good deal of the text. Large closed tear to the last page. A very rare survival. Overall: GOOD.

The first German edition of Dapper's important compilations of travels in Asia and Persia, following the first Amsterdam edition of 1672. Olfert Dapper (1639- 89) was a Dutch physician and indefatigable scholar and compiler of travel accounts. Though he apparently never left Amsterdam, Dapper produced several finely illustrated volumes describing travels in Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, and Africa. Culled from a variety of accounts, his works were very popular, and are especially noteworthy for their excellent illustrations and maps. The first title in the present volume describes travels in Asia and contains several detailed illustrations of Hindu and Buddhist myths, as well as Indian natives and port scenes. There is also a double-page map of "Indostan," showing the Indian subcontinent. Much of the text relates travels in India, though there are also sections on Kabul and Kandahar. The second title relates travels in Persia, and includes a double-page map showing the area encompassing present-day Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. There are double-page plates showing views of the cities of "Schamachie," "Isfahan," "Kom," "Derbendt," and more. OCLC locates only nine copies of this dual issue of Dapper's works. Not in Cox.

        Ordenanzas del Consejo Real de Indias. Nuevamente recopiladas por el rey don Felipe Quarto, N.S. para su gobierno, establecidas Año de M.DC.XXXVI.

      Madrid, por Julián de Paredes 1681 - Fol. (19,5 x 28,1 cm) 206 p., 7 h. de índice. Escudo real grabado al cobre en portada por Peret. Plena piel de época, lomo con nervios, hierros dorados y tejuelo rojo: orden dl con dind. Magnífico ejemplar, muy limpio y en perfecto estado. Segunda edición de las Ordenanzas para la regulación del Consejo de Indias promulgadas por Felipe IV. El Consejo de Indias, o Real y Supremo Consejo de Indias fue creado por Carlos V en 1524 –a imitación del Consejo de Castilla– con el fin de atender el ámbito político-administrativo de América. Ejercía plena jurisdicción sobre todo el territorio y sus residentes, y tenía capacidad jurídica para ordenar y ejecutar toda clase de ordenanzas, normas y reglamentos que fueran para el bien de su región administrada. Sólo el rey estaba sobre el Consejo de Indias. Al principio el Consejo de Indias carecía de Ordenanzas propias, se regía con las Ordenanzas del Consejo de Castilla y, gracias a las Leyes Nuevas de 1542, una especie de Constitución Política del Nuevo Mundo, se le consignaron algunas peculiaridades relativas a su funcionamiento, jurisdicción y defensa de los indios. En 1571 se promulgan las primeras ordenanzas específicas para el Consejo de Indias –las llamadas ordenanzas ovandinas, por Juan de Ovando– que estarán vigentes hasta que en 1636 Felipe IV promulge un nuevo texto, fruto del trabajo de Pedro de Vivanco, Juan Solorzano y León Pinelo, éste que ofrecemos.

      Joseph Forcada, Barcelona, Spain 1681 - AN EXCEEDING RARE SPIRITUAL TREATISE, VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN IN SUCH AN EARLY SPANISH EDITION, AND THE BOOK USED AS AN EARLY CONVERSION MANUAL IN THE NEW WORLD. Printed 1681 in Fine Original Vellum with gilt! COMBATTING OF THE DEVIL! The Book: Scupoli, Lorenzo (1530-1610); (Juan de Castaniza) (d. 1598), COMBATE ESPIRITUAL ESCRITO POR EL VENERALE SCUPOLIU. Barcelona, Joseph Forcada, 1681, 64mo. Fine contemporary limp vellum with gilt blindstamping, usual woodcut illustrated title of the devil firing an arrow into the breastplate of a Christian soldier. 452 pgs and tabla, complete. A precious Spanish edition of this classic treatise on evangelical perfection through spiritual exercises, including several chapters in partcular to the promotion of Christian faith and the combatting of the devil, as evidenced particularly in the title and frontispiece illustration. This manual was among the often used in the New World for conversion of the native from their "vices and the snares of the devil." There are no traces of the first Spanish edition. The present volume is among the earliest surviving Spanish copies, all of which are extremely rare, and the next readily traceable one being from 1722. Scupoli, Lorenzo (1530-1610); (Juan de Castaniza) (d. 159. Combate espiritual, o Tratado de la perfeccion Christiana. Traduxolo en la lengua Espanola de la Italiana, y de la Latina; y lo consagra, a la Emperatriz y Reina nuestra Senora, Don Damian Gonzalez del Cueto doctor en ambos derechos. Vienna, Johann Baptist Schilgen, 1722. A precious illustrated Spanish edition of this classic treatise on evangelical perfection through spiritual exercises, Combattimento spirituale (The spiritual combat), with engravings by Martin Engelbrecht. This work is commonly attributed to Juan de Castaniza, who is here identified in the preface. Castaniza, a Benedictine monk of Ona active in Italy, was known for his chronicles of the life of P. Rivadeneyra and St. Romuald. The work was written by the Italian father Lorenzo Scupoli, however, and translated shortly after its appearance by Castaniza into Spanish. Combate espiritual, in this pocket-sized and compact duodecimo format, is a handbook of devotional exercises presented in sixty-six chapters, modeled after Loyola's famous text. It aims at perfecting the soul through prayer, meditation, and examination of the conscience. It is thus a guide for the conquest of the spirit over unruly passions, the senses, and conscious acts, offering a method for self-regulation leading to virtue and salvation. Indeed, it prescribes the imitation of Christ's life through empathic contemplation on the Passion, assisted by the text and images. The stirring devotional image of the Crucifixion, engraved by Engelbrecht (1684-1756), depicts the cross as the fountain of life ("apud me est fons vitae"); Christ's blood pours into the cups of his disciples who stand at his feet. The engraving is appropriate for the work, a visual experience provoking empathy for Christ through inward meditation and complete sensitization through reflection on the image. The frontispiece, also by Engelbrecht, depicts Christ as the exemplar of complete virtue. An unsigned engraving of St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) accompanies a short elegy by this great ascetic bishop of Geneva, who endorsed in his spiritual teachings the mortification of the senses, will, and mind for the sake of perfection. The more simple depiction of St. Francis de Sales is likely produced by a different engraver, as Engelbrecht's compositions are here characterized by fully-modeled figures and atmospheric effects through the use of fine linework. Engelbrecht was the brother of Christian Engelbrecht (1672-1735). These well-known printsellers and engravers were dominant figures in Augsburg at this time, and are remembered for their portrait studies, and their landscape, religious and allegorical illustrations. Martin is also noted for his engravings used in perspective boxes or peepshows. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [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.

In the 'Poeticon Astronomicon' of Hyginus we find 43 fine text engraving of constellations and signs of the zodiac, which are engraved after the engravings by Jacob de Gheyn, and which were originally published in Hugo Grotii 'Syntagma Arateorum', Leiden 1600) (Condition: Vellum slightly soiled; small stain on right upper corner of the frontcover, large light stain on backcover; the ties are lacking) (Note: The first part of this collection begins with the 'Fabulae', a handbook of mythology compiled from Greek sources, and the 'Poeticon Astronomicum', a manual of astronomy, also from Greek sources, both works attributed to a Hyginus. The second part contains mythological works of the 'mythographus' Fabius Planciades Fulgentius, ca. 500, Lactantius Placidus, 6th century, and ends with 'De Deorum imaginibus libellus' of Albricus Philosophus, an influential mythographer, who according to Worldcat lived in the 13th century. The Dutch schoolmaster Thomas Muncker, or Munckerus, who was Rector of the Schola Latina of Delft from 1667 till 1680, is best known for his edition of the 'Mythographi Latini'. He produced also an edition of Antoninus Liberalis in 1676. Saxe called him 'cathedra Academica dignissimus' (Van der Aa, 12/2, 1148). On the portrait is depicted a young and vigorous man with a big wig and a dressing gown. Nevertheless, he died before the book was published) (Provenance; The prize is for one Albertus Coenen, who must have been ca. 14 years old. He received the prize on the occasion of his promotion as the first of his class from the 5th to the 4th grade. We found a dissertation (University Utrecht, 9 Juni 1836, cum laude) of one Albertus Coenen van 's Gravesloot: 'Dissertatio De querela falsi' Utrecht, Altheer, 1836. Van der Aa learns us that Jonkheer Mr. Albert Coenen van 's Gravesloot owned in 1843 the Seigniory 's Gravesloot in the province of Utrecht. The village housed 20 families and was 3,5 hour walk from city of Utrecht, where the Jonkheer actually lived. tells us that he was born 27 July 1809 in Utrecht. He died 24 December 1859 in Utrecht, where he was councilor of the provincial court of Utrecht) (Collation: * - 3*-8, 4*-4; A - 2K-8 (min 2K8),2L-8, 2M-2; A - Y-8, Z-2) (Photographs on request).
