      Nurnberg: Johann Hoffmanns, 1681. [6],300pp. plus twenty-eight plates (four of them double- page) and a double-page map. [bound with:] Dapper, Olfert: BESCHREIBUNG DES KONIGREICHS PERSIEN IN SICH HALTEND DIE LANDSCHAFFTEN FARS.... Nurnberg: Johann Hoffmans, 1681. [2],170,[5]pp. plus eleven plates (eight of them double-page) and three double-page maps. Text printed in double columns. Extra engraved titlepage in first work. Folio. Contemporary vellum, initials and date stamped in gilt on front board, manuscript title at head of spine. Light scattered foxing and tanning. Very 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. Scarce. BLACKMER 451. OCLC 6812164.

        Quatrieme Essay. De la nature de couleurs.

      Michallet. (8,5 x 15) PRIMA EDIZIONE. Piena pelle coeva con fregi in oro al dorso. (4) ff, 757 pp.(ma 760) per due errori di numerazione, (1) p. + 17 tavv. f.t. (11 rip.). Rarissimo. Mariotte (1620-1684) pubblicò quattro saggi importanti tra il 1679 ed il 1681, che difficilmente si trovano uniti. Questo trattato sui colori nel quale l'autore descrive i suoi esperimenti con il prisma è sicuramente il più importante dei quattro. Mariotte critica sia la teoria del colore di Newton che la spiegazione meccanica della luce di Descartes. Infine, con la sua interpretazione degli aloni, che occasionalmente sono visibili intorno al sole e alla luna, porta un grande contributo agli studi ottici sull'atmosfera. Poggendorff II-54; Wolf, History of Science I-271-272.

Genomgående fläckig och lagerfläckig, större sid. 23-27. Nött samtida hfrbd, guldornerad rygg och marmorerat pärmpapper.samtida anteckning på försättsbladet. Senare pappersetikett på frampärmen.

Lauritz Weibull kommenterade Gerners homeriska försök med att efter hans skildring skulle man tro att Danmark vann slaget vid Lund. ?Den gode biskopen, med all sin välmening, var ingenting mindre än en Homerus? löd Warmholtz lakoniska kommentar. Praktfulla träsnitt illustrerad texten. H. T. Gerner (1629-1700) var lärd präst och sedemera biskop. Under krigsåren 1658-60 plundrades hans prästgård sex gånger av svenskarna och han tillfångatogs 1659. Han fick hårt fängelse med bland annat ett 18 kg tungt järnlod att släpa på i 18 veckor, innan han vid freden 1660 blev fri. Han utvecklade sedan stor verksamhetslust och översatte Hesiodos till danska (1670), skrev inom politik och botanik, och även poesi, vilken dock i tunga alexandriner är mer kulturhistoriskt intressant än poetiskt.

      Moses Pitt, Oxford 1681 - Folio (13 x 8 1/4"). [8], 959, [1]pp (Text), [5]pp (Publisher's advertisement). Original blind-stamped calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Engraved frontispiece portrait of King Charles I.* Engraved title vignette. Decorative headpieces and initials. Published anonymously in 1681, and reissued the same year under the name of Sir William Dugdale, "this work establishes a triple parallel between the English Civil War, the Barons' Wars, and late-16th-century French Wars of Religion.Adopting the rhetoric of outrage, Dugdale infers connections between those earlier conflicts and the unfolding Exclusion Crisis.Modern scholars have denounced the party bias of "A Short View" as a falling off from the high standard of Dugdale's earlier antiquarian publications. That someone of Dugdale's stature should have invested time and energy in this kind of project, however, indicates that for him the deployment of the historical parallel, far from compromising the scholarly credentials of his work, was integral to the fulfillment of his duty as both loyal subject and historian" (For more information, see Paulina Kewes' "The Uses of History in Early Modern England" (2006)).Binding rubbed along spine, with head and tail slightly chipped. Closed tears along joints, however, both covers are still firmly attached. Previous owner's Ex-Libris (Lord Lilford) on inside of front cover. Minor and sporadic offsetting / foxing throughout. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. * Charles I, (1600-1649), king of Great Britain and Ireland (1625-49), whose authoritarian rule and quarrels with Parliament provoked a civil war that led to his execution.

FIRST EDITION. "The last noteworthy exercise in that type of universal history which, beginning with St. Augustine, interpreted the course of human history as a continuous manifestation of divine providence leading mankind towards salvation" (PMM). *An elaborately designed binding, probably 19th century. The front cover shows in mid-section a crucifixion scene framed by a gothic aedicula, which has been worked out of bone (165 x 90 mm). It is further equipped with a quadrilobe and several cresting flowers. The Body of Christ leaves no doubt that the Savior has already passed away. To the left of the cross, the enervated Mother of God is supported. Above the Crucifixion, in the brass plate, Christ appears as the ruler of the universe, surrounded by the Greek letters for beginning and end. Next to the midfield is St. Andrew, to the right St. Peter. The corner pieces are each decorated with eight smaller and five larger semi-precious stones, such as malachite, agate, amethyst, jasper or carnelian. The rear cover shows the blessing Christ in the Mandorla, surrounded by the four evangelist symbols. A later, approximately 0.5 cm wide edge fitting, partially covers the relief plate. Near Fine.

        Historia delle guerre d'Europa arrivate dall'anno 1643. fino al 1680.

      Appresso Nicolò Pezzana, Venetia, 1681. 2 v. legati in uno ([28], 591, [1] p.; [20], 543, [1] p.), 4º(24 cm), pergamena coeva con titoli a china al dorso e al tagli inferiore. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo, più evidenti all'occhietto che presenta anche uno abbozzo di schizzo caricaturale non recente, nome manoscritto a china d'epoca al piede del frontespizio della prima parte. Marca (O519) sui front. Iniziali xilogr. Unica edizione rara, completa di entrambe le parti. L'autore natcque a Modena nel 1635. Dopo aver preso i voti fu al servizio dell'abate Vittorio Siri come "aiutante di studio" dal 1660 al 1668. Alla fine del 1674 il Gazzotti si trovò a Venezia, e lì predispose la stampa della sua Historia, alla quale aveva lavorato sin dal suo ritorno in Italia sei anni prima. Dovette ritardare la pubblicazione a causa del parere negativo dei riformatori. Nel 1680 Gazzotti poté finalmente consegnare al tipografo Nicolò Pezzana il manoscritto dell'opera, i Riformatori lo obbligarono a sopprimere molti passi riguardanti casa Savoia. Fatto ritorno a Modena nell'ottobre 1681, i due volumi dell'Historia delle guerre di Europa dal 1643 al 1680 videro finalmente la luce e Gazzotti ne inviò una copia alla reggente, cogliendo l'occasione per dolersi delle numerose censure alle quali era stato costretto. Il giorno prima, il 15 ottobre, il Gazzotti aveva inviato a Genova un'altra copia dell'Historia, affinché fosse presentata al doge. I due volumi furono rimessi agli inquisitori di Stato, i quali il 1° giugno 1682 comunicavano al doge che l'opera - soprattutto per il modo in cui trattava della guerra di dieci anni prima col duca di Savoia - era degna del gradimento della Repubblica. Il Gazzotti ricevette così non solo una ricompensa di 100 scudi d'oro (che gli giunsero a Modena il 9 agosto 1682) ma anche l'assicurazione che le autorità genovesi (tramite Francesco Maria Sauli) gli avrebbero fornito tutti i documenti necessari per altri suoi lavori, purché mantenesse analogo riguardo per la Repubblica. Il Gazzotti naturalmente accettò, ponendo quale unica condizione che il suo operato rimanesse segreto. Oltre che dalla ricompensa genovese, la lunga attesa per la pubblicazione fu premiata dalla buona accoglienza che l'opera ebbe sia presso il pubblico (tanto che il G., informato che a Bologna si voleva fare un'edizione non autorizzata della sua opera, chiese e ottenne un privilegio col quale si impediva la ristampa per dieci anni), sia presso i dotti.

        Autograph Letter Signed, with transcription, (Sir Leoline, 1625-1685, Judge of the Admiralty Court and Diplomat, Secretary of State, 1680-1684)

      1681 - to Sir Richard BULSTRODE, (1617-1711, Charles II's Agent, 1674-1676, and Envoy at Brussels, 1676-1688, Jacobite and Writer), thanking him for "the last I have of yours", and assuring Bulstrode that "His Maiestie does, on this side, all he can by Speaking to the French Ambassador, and by his Orders to Mr W Chamberlain now in France, to have the French Court desist from their pretensions to Chiny, and to goe on with the Conferences at Courtray. He invites the States Generall to joyn with Him in his offices", ending "I pray God send them a good Issue", 1 side 4to., Whitehall, 13th June a little spotting and light stain to centre of page, tipped on to a matt mount, with protective paper sleeve Since 1667, when Turenne invaded and conquered Flanders, Louis XIV had been attempting to annex the rest of the Spanish Netherlands, its capital Brussels, and ultimately the Dutch Republic. From 1673 William of Orange had been his chief opponent. Jenkins had built up an international reputation at the Court of Admiralty on points of maritime law, neutrality and the taking of prizes. Accordingly he was chosen one of the plenipotentiaries at the abortive congress of Cologne (1673-1674), and then at the congress of Nijmegen (1675-1679). The bulk of the negotiations on the English side fell to him after his colleague Temple was recalled in 1677. However, Louis XIV concluded separate peaces with the Dutch (August 1678), Spanish (September 1678), and the Austrians (February 1679). From February to July 1679 Jenkins stayed on as Ambassador to the Netherlands. On his recall he was thanked by Charles II, and persuaded to become a secretary of state. He found himself having to investigate Whig plots, and was involved, to his great dislike, in the recall of the City's charters in 1684. In spite of the treaties of 1678, Louis' jurists were still adding to the French claims - here Chiny, on the Spanish Netherlands side of the border with France - and the present letter shows Jenkins still closely involved with the disputes. Jenkins is remembered as almost a "second founder" of Jesus College, Oxford,where he was Principal, 1661-1673, and where he built the library. Among other benefactions he bought, endowed and bequeathed to Jesus the grammar school at Cowbridge where he had been educated, further strengthening the collegeís ties with Wales. Bulstrode, a Roman Catholic convert, gleaned huge quantities of information in his post in Brussels. At the Revolution he stayed on, sending intelligence to James II at St Germain, which he and his family finally reached after he was expelled from Brussels in 1694. Jenkins dates Bulstrode's last letter "16 N[ew] st[yle]", (continental calendar, the 6th by the English calendar), suggesting it took only a week to come.

        Musaeum Regalis Societatis, or a Catalogue and Description

      1681. First Edition . 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.

      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.

        Recreatio Mentis Et Oculi In Observatione Animalium Testaceorum. Curiosis Naturae Inspectoribus. Italico sermone primùm proposita. Nunc denuò ab eodem Latinè oblata, centum additis Testaceorum Iconibus, circa quae varia Problemata proponuntur. 2 Teile in 1 Band.

      Gest. Frontispiz, 8 Bll., 270 S., 5 Bll., 1 leeres Bl. Mit 7 Kupfertafeln, darunter 3 im kleineren Format Gest. allegorisches Titelblatt, 142 Kupfertafeln, einschließlich 3 gest.

Erste, gegenüber der italienischen Erstausgabe von 1681, erweiterte lateinische Ausgabe. - Filippo Bonanni (1638-1725), Mitglied des Jesuitenordens, war ein Schüler von Athanasius Kircher an der Akademie des Ordens in Rom und wurde nach seinem Rücktritt als Professor für Mathematik dessen Nachfolger und nach seinem Tode auch Kurator von Kirchers Museum, das eine bedeutende Sammlung von Antiquitäten, antiken Geräten, Schriften und Fossilien aller Art bewahrte. Ein wichtiger Tätigkeitsbereich von ihm war neben der Mikroskopie und den Lackierungen die Welt der Muscheln und Fossilien. Seine "Recreatio Mentis et Oculi" ist das erste Werk, das sich vollständig diesem Thema widmet. Das Buch enthält über 500 sehr fein und detailgetreu gezeichnete Muscheln mit Beschreibung der einzelnen Arten. Ein Titelkupfer und 6 Kupfer zeigen aus Muscheln komponierte Fratzen im Barockstil - ähnlich den aus Früchten komponierten Porträts von Arcimboldo. - Einband minimal berieben, Rücken im oberen Drittel sehr sorgfältig restauriert.

        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.

        Russia antique map - Visscher, 1681.

      "Moscoviae seu Russiae Magnae Generalis Tabula quâ 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 Minorâ?'Â' na 1681. 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,-.
