(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]

Dugdale, William, Sir, (1605-1686); and Roger Dodsworth
Londini (London): Aliciae Warren, 1681. 80 large pristine plates. Text in Latin. Note: that vol. 1 is a second edition (1682), and vol. 2 is a first edition (1661). A third volume was published in 1673, more than a decade after the second volumes, but a fire at the publisher's office destroyed many of those copies, and it is common to find only volumes one and two paired together, as they stand alone on their own without the third volume. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. Photos available upon request.. Quarter Calf Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover.

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]

Dapper, Olfert + Jacob Spon & George Wheler.
Froberg für J. Hoffmann, Nurnberg, 1681. 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. Following this trend, Dapper was just over thirty years old when he e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Flechier Esprit (1632-1710) ~ Histoire de Théodose le Grand pour Monseigneur le Dauphin ~ A Paris, Maere-Cramoisy, 1681 In-12, Vélin époque, 560 pp., frontispice, Bel exemplaire ex bibliotheca d'Arenberg (Nordkirchen) Flechier né à Pernes, dans le Comtat Venaissin, le 10 juin 1632. 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. Théodose le Grand (347-395) fut le dernier souverain de l'Empire romain unifié.

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]

HOBBES, Thomas.
William Crooke, London, 1681. 1 blank leaf + 1 leaf with frontispiece portrait on verso + TP + [i]-[iv] = The Preface + 1-134 = The Whole Art of Rhetorick + [135] = second TP (The Art of Rhetorick Plainly set forth; with Pertinent Examples for the more easie understanding and Practice of the same) + 137-168 + 1-208 = A Dialogue Between a Phylosopher and a Student of The Common-Laws of England + 1 blank leaf; Octavo. 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. Herein he has endeavor'd to accommodate the general notions of his Politic to the particular constitutions of the English Mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Barlow, Thomas [Lord Bishop of Lincoln] (1607-1691)
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]

Penn, William:
London: Benjamin Clark, 1681.. [2],10pp. Folio. Blue crushed morocco by Riviere & Son, title in gilt on spine and front board, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Scratch on front cover, two bookplates on front pastedown. Expert restoration to the title- leaf with a few letters supplied; minor soiling. A few text leaves skillfully repaired. Very good. The primary tract in the foundation of Pennsylvania, and a bedrock piece of Americana. On March 4, 1681, to resolve the Crown's debt to the Penn family, Charles II granted the vast area west and south of New Jersey to William Penn, and Penn immediately began laying the foundations for his new colony. This included contact with numerous leading Quakers in England and Wales, the appointment of several agents, and, most importantly, the publication of this promotional tract "to describe the new colony and the opportunities that were available to persons wishing to settle there or invest in the venture...[It] is the basic pamphlet" - Bronner & Fraser. The successful settlement of Penn's new charter was due principally to William Penn's marketing of the region, beginning with this work. "Penn's advertising campaign for his new colony in the early 1680s was the most successful English colonial recruitment drive since the Puritans had founded Massachusetts fifty years before...and provided the necessary momentum that got the Quaker colony off to a successful start" - Dunn. The work is quite rare on the market. This copy is Bronner & Fraser's second state of the first edition, with the "Fifty Acres shall be allowed" readi … [Click Below for Full Description]

A disbound copy, side sewn, with traces of backing at spine. 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. The leaves are mostly clean, but with a few spots of soiling throughout. Slight horizontal crease at the center from folding. Housed in a fleece lined, blue cloth, clamshell box; title gilt-stamped at spine and upper board. This copy appears to belong to what Mcdonald calls the first edition, first issue because Sig. C contains all of the misprints in an uncorrected state. On page 5, line 10 'And serv'd' for 'As serv'd,' and on page 6, 'cuold,' 'Kold,' 'Kody' and 'Patron's' in lines 4, 8, 12, and 34, respectively, for 'could,' 'Bold,' 'Body' and 'Patriott's;' the catchword is 'Not' instead of'Oh.' Mcdonald notes that in most copies the four misprints in the text on p. 6 have been corrected in ink; only the final misprint in this copy has an ink correction. Also, the address leaf is unsigned. Mcdonald indicates that the signature 'A' was added in what he identifies as the third issue. This is the first of Dryden's great satires. It is an allegory based on 2 Sam. 13-9 and deals with certain aspects of the Exclusion crisis, notably the int … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
