Joh. Henrici Heideggeri; Johannis Henrici Heideggeri; Heidegger, Johann Heinrich; John Henry Heidegger; Jo. Guilielmi Baieri
Tiguri (Zurich), Switzerland: Davidis Gessneri, 1681. Language: Latin. 8vo; full vellum. 1085 pp. Bound together with Jo. Guilielmi Baieri's Compendium Theologiae Moralis (572 pp.). The pages bear a little scattered foxing, age-toning in the margins, prior owners' marks and some water staining at the front endpapers, foxing and water staining at the final endpapers, a corner tear at the second page of the first index resulting the loss of a few letters of text, and a very few instances of tidy underlining; the binding is relaxing a bit near the hinges, but remains square and secure; the full, original, leather binding is darkened at the spine, the title still legible but with two letters partially covered by a black ink spot, and somewhat specked and spotted over the entirety, yet remains remarkably sound and supple. This is the enchiridion of John Henry Heidegger, the most prominent Swiss Reform theologian of the late 17th century and author of the Helvetic Consensus Formula in 1675, noted for being the last doctrinal Confession of the Reformed Church of Switzerland. In their time, Heidegger's were the standard texts of Reformed Church theology. This particular volume was published six years after the Helvetic Consensus further splintered the Church. The heft of it suggests its author's enthusiasm at returning to an academic life after an involuntary foray into High Calvinist politics. Full title: Enchiridion Biblicum. Ieromnemonikon. Lectioni Sacrae, Analysi generali singulorum V. & N. Test. Librorum, & delibato Capitum *Argumento*; praemissis quinetiam ad … [Click Below for Full Description]

VASARI, Giorgio
Bologna: Manolessi, 1681. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Three volumes, large 4tos. (8) ff, 76 pp, 432 pp; (1) ff, 543 pp; (22) ff, 407 pp, (1), (65) ff, including half-titles to each volume. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum with manuscript titles on spines; vellum a bit bowed, with some remnant of mold on coversInternally very clean and fresh. Fine copy of "the first critical edition of [Vasari's] Lives" (Rubin, p 414): an important augmented and illustrated edition of this landmark of art historical criticism and biography, and a neglected publication in the Vasarian corpus. The copious notes by Carlo Manolessi first appeared in the Bologna edition of 1647, of which the present work is mainly a new impression. As all Renaissance architects were artists, the work forms an equally fundamental text for the history of architecture, containing the foundations of what we know about Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Raphael, etc. Under Manolessi's careful editorship, the Bologna editions of the Vite signalled the shift of Vasari's work from a hagiography of secular saints into the nascent world of 17th century antiquarianism, connoisseurship and artistic pilgrimmages to view the works of the Masters. The work reprints the text and woodcut portraits of the first illustrated edition (Giunta 1568) but adds some half dozen portraits in the Giunta style, and several hundred marginal comments. Claiming to correct the nearly infinite errors of the Giunti text, these range from glosses of antiquated turns of phrase to making more precise the whereabouts of works … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GAUDEN, John, 1605-1662]
London: printed by R. Norton for Richard Royston, bookseller to His most Sacred Majesty, MDCLXXXI [1681]. Sheep. Near Fine+. 8vo: [16],256 (p. 186 misnumbered 860)pp, with 2 copper-engraved portraits, including the frontispiece by R. White. First two words of title in Greek characters. Period sheep, boards framed in blind with a double fillet, flat spine with recent red morocco lettering piece gilt. Scuffed and rubbed, but otherwise an excellent copy, the binding tight, text fine, plates in deep, rich impressions. Provenance: early ownership signature to front fly leaf of John Eames (perhaps the tutor [1686–1744] and fellow of the Royal Society, sponsored by Newton), dated 1709, with the intriguing inscription: "Let my Repentance be my Recovery as my great Sins have been my Ruin." Wing (CD-ROM, 1996), E311A. Madan, New bibliography of the Eikon Basilike, 66. ESTC Citation No. R204383. Supposed spiritual autobiography of Charles I, first published ten days after the king was beheaded by Parliament in the aftermath of the English civil war, but according to Madan (pp. 125-33) it was written, in the form of a diary, by John Gauden, who probably included some authentic writings of the king. The book combines prayers urging forgiveness of Charles's executioners with a justification of royalty, making it a masterstroke of Royalist propoganda. The poem Majesty in Misery, included in this edition, was first printed with the 1676 edition of Perinchief's Life of King Charles and is said to have been composed by the King at Carisbrooke.

Knox's father was a, established merchant in the Levant trade, and in 1655 Knox sailed with him on a new venture for India. The trip was highly successful, and a second voyage was planned under the recently incorporated East India Company to the Coromandel Coast and Persia. The voyage was "of limited commercial success", and attended by more bad luck when their ship was dismasted in a storm at Marsulipatam, and forced into Kottiar Bay, Ceylon, to obtain a new mainmast, and to scare up whatever trade might be available. Unfortunately the reigning monarch, Rajasinha II, was at the time in a stand-off with his allies the Dutch, who had helped him drive the Portuguese out of Ceylon in retur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vol. 1, no. 15 consists of lists of imports, exports, and ship movements in and out of London from February 1683 to March 1684. "Each issue consisted of Houghton's lengthy editorial, plus one or more letters, covering all aspects of agriculture and land improvement and occasionally venturing into matters of commerce or popular science and technology; they dealt with matters then under active discussion by progressive agriculturalists. Houghton was the first to remark on the cultivation of the potato as a field crop, just beginning at the time" (ODNB). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean La Chapelle
- London -R. Bentley, 1681 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. 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.

London: Printed for Walter Kettilby, 1681. First edition. Hardcover. First Edition. 12mo. pp. [16], 118. Re-bound / re-backed preserving the original calf boards. The boards are well rubbed but treated for preservation. Inner hinges are strengthened. No paste-downs or fly-leaves are present. This copy lacks the final blank leaf. A signature – “John Brand 1802” is printed in a miniscule early hand on the verso of the title. (Uncertain if this is the famed English antiquarian John Brand (1744-1806). Hallywell's book is not mentioned in the sale catalogue of his library printed in 1807). The interior pages contain some age-toning. The leaves in gathering H (pp. 101-112) are browned. An occasional minor marginal chip or tear is neatly repaired. A small tear in the upper corner tip of the title page is sealed. Miniscule marginal corner-tip chipping is present to the first few leaves. The last two leaves contain marginal chipping to the fore-edges. Bottom marginal edge and corner to page 81 is rough. Henry Hallywell, a Cambridge Master of Arts and Fellow of Christ's College, was a friend of the Cambridge Platonist Henry More. Hallywell's “Melampronoea” is a polemic against skeptics who would deny the existence of the “kingdom of darkness,” fallen angels and witchcraft. The author strongly believed that witches and magicians could be in league with demonic agents. Hallywell discusses the nature and order of demons, and gives examples of demon worship, demonic possession, witchcraft and magic in reference to ancient and contemporary sources. An uncommon book.

[PATRICK, Simon.]
London. R. Royston. 1681. [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.

First Edition - with the engraved portrait of Sir Daniel Colwall ( - 1690), merchant and philanthropist, and "founder" of the Royal Society, and 22 engraved plates, including one folding, depicting the natural rarities of the museum, and 9 plates devoted to 31 different stomachs and guts. - As secretary to the Royal Society, Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712) compiled this illustrated catalogue if its museum, housed then at Gresham College. "Published with the catalogue is Grew's study of the stomach organs, which is the first zoological book to have the term 'comparative anatomy' on the title-page, and also the first attempt to deal with one system of organs only by the comparative method." * - "The catalogue of the Royal Society's museum ... excels it by far in its orderly arrangement, detailed descriptions and historical data relating to the natural phenomena that form its subject matter. This museum is usually regarded as having been founded by Daniel Colwall ( -. 1690); and it is true that he made its foundation possible. He was one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society elected in 1663 and for 14 years was treasurer in which capacity he was able to save it more than once from financial collapse.

(BARBERINI, Francesco, Cardinal)
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 pri … [Click Below for Full Description]

London - W. Crook, 1681. London - W. Crook, 1681 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of this fascinating collection of the proclamations and decrees of King James I, along with other important events in his reign including his proclamation to repress piracy and illegal marine activities, the case of Sir John Kenneda and Lady Kenneda's marriage annulment and speeches by Sir Francis Bacon. The author's intended purpose for this volume is declared on the title page, being to, 'serve to supply the Vacancy betwixt Mr. Townsend's and Mr. Rushworth's Historical Collections. ' The Mr Rushworth to whom he refers is almost certainly John Rushworth, an historian and politician who began to document significant events in the 1630sand:'did personally attend and observe all Occurrences of moment during the Eleven years Interval of Parliament, in the Star-Chamber, Court of Honour, and Exchequer-Chamber, when all the Judges of England met there upon extraordinary Cases; at the Council Table, when great Causes were heard before the King and Council. ' (Rushworth, Collections, pt 1, sigs. b4r, bv). He took notes in shorthand, and these records formed the basis of his subsequent history of the period. In 1641 Rushworth began to buy news pamphlets and periodicals; from December 1641 he usually bought one newsbook a week and formed an impressive collection of these early periodicals, which he annotated, underlined, and commented on. They subsequently formed one element of his major work, Historical Collections. Condition: The volum … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio. 32.50 x 22 cm, German text in Gothic script, double column, VOLUME I in 2 Parts: [3], 300 pp., [4] / 170 pp., [4]., frontispiece, illustrated with 39 copper engravings, of which 25 are full page plates, 8 double page (one with an extra fold) and 4 double page maps, plus 6 in text engravings. Bound with VOLUME II in 2 Parts: [6], 122 pp., / 120 pp., + [4], 11 plates including 2 maps, woodcut initials, head and tail pieces, contemporary full calf, slightly rubbed round edges with worm holes on lower cover, some worming with loss of few words in the last section, very minor browning and sporadic foxing. This is a copy of Dapper’s German translation by Jacob von Meursen, who engraved the copper plates, which were compiled and modified from earlier printed works. The many illustrations are beautiful, depicting landscapes, architecture, desert scenes, religious and historical events and much more, making this a famous and well known work. Olfert Dapper (1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician, writer and expert on Africa. In May 1658, he enrolled at Utrecht University and two years later was signing himself "Doctor medicinæ," although there is no evidence that he ever received any medical training. In 1663, he published a historical description of Amsterdam. In 1665 he published a Dutch translation of the works of Herodotus. With the increased interest in exploration and foreign cultures, a flourishing trade in travel books developed in Holland in the mid 17th century.

Il eut une jeunesse pauvre, fréquenta l'hôtel Rambouillet, devint sous-précepteur, puis lecteur du Dauphin et aumônier de Mme la Dauphine. Poète français et latin, remarquable orateur sacré, il prononça des oraisons funèbres, dont les meilleures sont celles de Turenne et du duc de Montausier. Nommé à l'Académie le 5 décembre 1672, en remplacement de Godeau, il fut reçu le 12 janvier 1673, le même jour que Racine et Gallois. Son discours eut un succès qui déconcerta Racine, parlant après lui et qui le fit paraître inférieur à lui-même, " Le premier qui fut reçu après moi fut M. l'abbé Fléchier, évêque de Nîmes. Il y eut une foule de monde et de beau monde à sa réception. On peut dire que l'Académie changea de face à ce moment ; de peu connue qu'elle était, elle devint si célèbre, qu'elle faisait le sujet des conversations ordinaires. " (Perrault). Fléchier fut nommé évêque de Lavaur, en 1685, puis de Nîmes, 1687 ; sa charité était inépuisable et il fut regretté même des protestants. Il reçut Huet, fut protecteur de l'Académie de Nîmes, et a laissé une Histoire de Théodose le Grand. Mort le 16 février 1710.

Amsterdam - Joannis a Someren, 1681 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extremelyscarce seventeenth-century collection of ancient and classical writings onmythology, astronomy and constellations. In Latin. This work contains extracts from Hyginus's Poeticon Astronomicon, a star atlas and book of stories, the mythological studies of Fulgentius, including his Mythologies, The Exposition of the Content of Virgil According to Moral Philosophy, and The Explanation of Obsolete Words, Lactantius' Argument of the Metamorphosis Nasonianarum, and Albricus Philosophus's commentary. Works and manuscripts collected by Thomas Munckerus, with notes and improvements, and to act as a record and library of mythology. With an illustrated frontispiece to volume I, a portrait plate of Thomas Munckerus, andforty-three wonderful astronomic illustrations throughout Poeticon Astronomicon (collated complete). Complete in two volumes. Gaius Julius Hyginus (ca. 64 BC AD 17) was a Latin author, a pupil of the famous Cornelius Alexander Polyhistor, and a freedman of Caesar Augustus. During the Renaissance, Poeticon Astronomicon was attributed to the Roman historian Gaius Julius Hyginus. However, the fact that the book lists most of the constellations north of the ecliptic in the same order as Ptolemy's Almagest (written in the 2nd century AD) has led many to believe that a more recent Hyginus created the text. The text describes 47 of the 48 Ptolemaic constellations, centering primarily on the Greek and Roman mythology surrounding the constellations, though there is some discussion of the rel … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition. MacDonald & Hargreaves 13. According to MacDonald & Hargreaves, "A Dialogue between a Phylosopher and a Student is published here for the first time." (p. 9) The exact nature of the Rhetorick is less clear since Hobbes had published similar works (see MacDonald & Hargreaves 12 & 12a) in 1637 and 1651, but the Preface (see below) clearly indicates that this Rhetorick contains new materials. Two works published posthumously - two years after Hobbes' death. According to the Preface, these works are "now Publish'd from his own true Copies, an advantage which some of his works have wanted."The first of them [The Whole Art of Rhetorick], being an abridgement containing the most useful part of Aristotle's Rhetoric, was written some thirty years since To this he thought fit to add some small matter relating to that part which concern's Tropes and Figures; as also a short discovery of some little tricks of false and deceitful Reasoning." "The other piece is a Discourse concerning the Laws of England, and has been finish'd many years.

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 n … [Click Below for Full Description]
