Author 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 Catholics. His death in 1669 was "occasioned by a generous and good-natured intemperance". The publication of this volume, his second book, was supposedly delayed after his death by a "knavish bookseller". Notes for other works were burnt by Foulis on his deathbed.

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.

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]

I also; many copies lack either one or the other), with continuous pagination from issue to issue in each volume.

First edition. Houghton (1645–1705) kept an apothecary's shop and dealt in such exotic overseas produce as coffee, chocolate, and spices. Elected to the Royal Society under the patronage of Robert Hooke, he was the editor and principal contributor to this collection of essays on farming, money and trade, commodity prices, and notices of books relating to agriculture. 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 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.

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.

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.

"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.
