[SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM] and Nahum Tate.
London: Printed by T.M. for Joseph Hindmarsh, at the Black-Bull in Cornhill, 1682. FIRST EDITION. Quarto: An excellent, large copy in half red morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, by Philip Dusel. Miniscule hole in the blank center of the title-page with an early and unobtrusive repair. First edition of one of the scarcer Restoration Shakespeare adaptations. Tate reworked that play in response to the turbulent political crisis of his day.Shakespeare composed Coriolanus sometime between 1605 and 1610. While it is conjectured, based on contemporary clues (the theaters were closed due to plague until December 1609, and Jonson parodied of a line from the play in late 1609 or early 1610), that Coriolanus was performed around December-January 1609/10, the first performance for which we have concrete evidence is the staging of Tate's adaptation on 14 January 1681/2 (although it probably premiered in December 1681.)"The premiere inaugurates both the play's recorded theatrical career and seven of the most politically turbulent decades in England's history. The struggle for power between king and parliament, recurrent Jacobite crises, and the birth pangs of the party system created a mood of national anxiety not unlike the Jacobean-Roman apprehension that inhabits 'Coriolanus', a circumstance not lost on contemporary playwrights and theater managers..."[Shakespeare's] Coriolanus, as sage and study agree, is not a comfortable play. Hacked as it were out of granite, its austere grandeur invites admiration rather than affection... The cast of principal characters is small, and thei … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WIC - SLAVE TRADE].
[6], 31, 45, [2] pp.Very rare first and only edition of a collection of official documents, sent to Berlin by the Dutch West-India Company (WIC) arguing that their monopoly for trade in West-Africa was also valid for foreign ships and private trading in general.Inspired by the economic success of the Dutch Republic, the Elector of Brandenburg founded the "Brandenburgisch-Afrikanische Compagnie" (BAC) in 1682 to partake in the profitable trade in gold, ivory and slaves from West-Africa. The Dutch WIC, a direct competitor, argued against the validity of the Brandenburg trade.The core piece is a treatise by Johannes Althusius, the solicitor-general of the WIC (pp. 1-31). Defending the interest, legal structure and jurisdiction of the WIC, he refers to the founding premises of the WIC (and VOC), the history of international trade, and international and natural law, based partly on Hugo Grotius, De mare liberum (pp. 23-25 ), which makes his treatise also very important for the development of international law in the second half of the 17th century. With some contemporary corrections (the modern binder folded in some leaves to avoid shaving the annotations).l Van der Heyden, Rote Adler an Afrikas Küste; Brauner, Kompanien, Könige und Caboceers, pp. 428-430; Paesie, Lorrendrayers op Afrika, pp. 43-48; STCN (1 copy); not in Knuttel; Tiele.

GUERREIRO, João Tavares de Velez.
[16], 427, [1 blank] pp.Second edition of a journal of the voyage of António de Albuquerque Coelho (Brazil ca. 1682-Goa ca. 1745) from Goa in India to Macao on the coast of southern China. The journal was written by João Tavares de Velez Guerreiro, a captain in the Portuguese navy, serving in India, who accompanied the governor on the voyage as his chief of staff. Coelho had been appointed governor of the city of Macao in 1717 and they arrived there in May 1718. They travelled via Madras, through the Malay peninsula and along the coasts of Indochina and China. Part 1 gives an account of the voyage itself and part 2 an account of their stay in Johor at the southern tip of the Malay peninsula, where they played a role in a coup d'état by a Sumatran adventurer.Boards rubbed, spine worn and with some wormholes, front board partly detached from bookblock, but with the text in very good condition, with only some occasional wormholes. A valuable eye-witness account of India, Southeast Asia and China in 1718.l Cordier, Sinica 3219; Howgego A47; Löwendahl 377; PorBase (4 copies).

[DRAWING]. SAUNDERS, John.
A pastel portrait drawn by the prolific itinerant portraitist John Saunders (1682-ca.1758) at Peterborough in September 1739. Saunders is recorded as active in East Anglia, the Midlands and elsewhere in the mid-18th century. The sitter John Sturges appears in Turkish costume, wearing a white turban with blue feather and a coat with gold trimmings and a fur collar. Saunders probably based it on a 1733 mezzotint drawn and engraved by Francis Kyte (d. 1744) after a painting (or the ink-wash drawing noted below?) by John Vanderbank (1694-1739). The pastel is of interest as an example of mid-18th century depiction of Turkish costume.With a paper label on the back with a manuscript note repeating information from the autograph pencil inscription by Saunders on the front, top right: "Saunders pinxit after Mr. J[oh]n Vanderbank Peterborough Sept. anno d. 1739". Two negligible scratches to surface, otherwise in good condition.l Jeffares, "John Saunders 1682-p. 1758", in: Dictionary of pastellists before 1800 (online ed.).

Godinez, Miguel (Michael Wadding)
Sevilla: Juan Vejarano, 1682. Second edition. Small octavo, 10.5 x 15cm, ff 13, pp 385 + 6. There is an earlier edition apparently, printed in Puebla, Mexico, the year previous, which is exceedingly rare. Beristain (Bibliotheca) mentions it in his biographical sketch of Fr. Godinez, but Palau (Manual) says the work is so rare that he doubts Beristain actually saw it, and Medina (Imprenta de Puebla) apparently did not see a copy either because he does not give any collation. Godinez is the hispanisized name of Wadding, a notable Irish family: Miguel's brother Luke, a franciscan, was a significant figure in his day. Miguel (1591 - 1644) was trained abroad, as was necessary for Catholics then, at the Jesuit seminary attached to the Univ. of Salamanca, where he adopted the name Godinez and joined the Jesuits. He was sent to Mexico soon after 1609, as a misionary in Sinaloa. Later he taught philosophy in Puebla and theology in Mexico at the Jesuit university San Pedro y San Pablo. He was a noted spiritual director. Beristain says: "su inocencia de costumbres fue admirable." Works of mystical theology are quite rare in Mexican ecclesiastical history - in fact, this work may be unique as the only original mystical treatise composed in Mexico . OCLC shows less than a dozen copies in library holdings: there were two later printings, in Spain, in the 18th century, all rare. This is a nice copy, paper is fresh, binding is contemporary vellum; "Godinez" is inked in gothic letters on the spine.

Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettering in 5 compartments (a bit rubbed). First edition of Sterbeeck's rare treatise on the culture of citrus fruit in the Low Countries. 'Van Sterbeeck was a Jesuit priest. His book about citrus fruit and other exotic plants starts with five congratulatory poems, some in Flemish, some in Latin, all by various local worthies praising their friend for his achievement. The extra leaf between pages 74 and 75 contains another poem, in couplets, called "Weeninge van Adam", a lament for Eden, following a chapter of speculation on the identity of Adam's apple, the forbidden fruit - an apple, a fig, or even a banana? A lengthy bibliography and list of contents follow before the main text, a first part on oranges, a second on citrons and grapefruit, a third on lemons, and a fourth on exotic trees, grafting, and pests. The last section deals with pomegranates, passionflowers, laurels, cinnamon, and the oleander. The part of the book on the management of exotic trees, indoors in winter or out of doors in summers, describes how to keep them happy in tubs or pots, and even how to cope with insects, mice, or rats in greenhouses. The whole book is dedicated to Justus de Nobelaer, Knight, whose palatial greenhouse is described on page 167, where Commelin's is also mentioned' (Sandra Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona pp. 186-7).

Small-4to. With a woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 engraved plates (10 folding) with meticulous illustrations of insects metamorphoses and the gradual growth of their limbs. 18th-century marbled boards, manuscript spine label. [8], 215, [1 blank] pp. First French edition of perhaps the most important work of the celebrated Dutch natural historian, Jan Swammerdam (1637-1689), translated from the first edition in the original Dutch (1669): Historia generalis ofte algemeene verhandeling der bloedloose dierkens. It describes and illustrates the slow and almost imperceptible growth of certain insects' limbs and the difference between this gradual growth and the metamorphoses of other insects. The work also contains a large folding table comparing the growth and the metamorphosis of different insect limbs. The drawings Swammerdam made for the engraved plates and the conclusions he drew were based on his own long and careful observations through the microscope. Swammerdam was one of the most important among the early scientists studying insect anatomy, in many respects even more important than Malpighi. He rejects arguments from his contemporaries to remove insects as subjects open to scientific study, by refuting the idea that insects lack internal anatomy, that they were originated by spontan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caillet 5107. Duveen p. 292, for the 1747 edition. This is the second edition, the first was published in 1659. With an introductory verse signed "H.R.C." The book is a collection of four alchemical tracts by Artephius, Johannes de Garlandia (Hortulanus), Arnaldus de Villa Nova, and Bernard of Treviso respectively. The essays mostly concern the Philosopher's stone; as the slogan on the title page happily exclaims: "Diß Büchlein ist viel Geldes wert, wirstu es recht verstahn/ Die gülden Kunst kein ander Buch dich besser lehren kan." David Herlitz (or Herlicius) (1557-1635) was a medical doctor, and a renowned mathematician , astronomer (astrologer), and author of Latin poetry. He was active in Stargard in Pommerania, and his mathematical writings were so famous, that Wallenstein, during his stay there in 1628 commissioned him to write a horoscope over Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden.

Grotius's treatise is considered to be the first expression of the "droit naturel", the first theorisation of "just war", and the foundation of modern international law; it had a profound influence on eighteenth-century political theorists such as Locke as well as on the arguments … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small folio (26 x 19.5 cm). 40 ink and watercolour drawings (28 round and 12 square, each ca. 11 x 11 cm) showing the decorative patterns and coloured marbles from the floors of 5 churches. Each has a triple-rule border in black ink with a panel at the foot containing the name of the church. Contemporary(?) boards covered with later (ca. 1840?) Storemont on shell marbled paper. [40] ll. A book of 40 detailed colour drawings showing the elaborate patterns in the mosaic marble tile floors of five different churches, with eight examples from each church: Santa Maria Maggiore (1-8), Santi Giovanni e Paolo (9-16), San Marco (17-24), Sant' Alessio (25-32) and Sant' Ivo (33-40). All probably refer to the Roman churches of these names, though the Basilica di San Marco in Venice also has elaborate mosaic floors. Some of the mosaics are in the Mediaeval Italian style called Cosmatesque, but some may date from the Renaissance. Besides a wide variety of triangular, square, rectangular, diamond, hexagonal, and octagonal tiles, there are many cut with circular edges and a few irregular quadrilaterals. Some are assembled to form stars in a hexagonal grid, round sunburst patterns and an endless variety of other patterns. All patterns show a rotational symmetry around the centre point or a repeating pattern in a square or hexagonal grid. The colouring of many of the tiles shows various styles and colours of marble veins.The drawings are difficult to date exactly. The leaves used for the d … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARGGRAF, Christiaan (Christianus MARGGRAVIUS).
Materia medica contracta, exhibens simplicia & composita medicamenta officinalia.Amsterdam, Henricus Wetstein, 1682. 4to. With Wetstein's woodcut publisher's device. 18th-century sheepskin parchment. [16], 280, [22] pp. Second and best edition (2nd issue) of a detailed Latin handbook of pharmacology, written by the Leiden physician and lecturer in medicine and chemistry Christiaan Marggraf (1626-1687), first published in 1674 but greatly expanded by the author for the present second edition. The book contains hundreds of medicinal recipes, using ingredients derived from animals, plants and minerals (including metals), and is especially interesting for its attempt to classify medicines in hierarchical tables, just when John Ray in England was pioneering the hierarchical classification of plants that anticipated the Linnaean classification used today. The text is divided into four sections and is based on the physiological chemistry of Sylvius, which was beginning to displace the Paracelsian iatrochemical school, represented by Van Helmont, which had dominated medical chemistry for more than a century. The first section gives a general introduction and discusses the theory of both simple and compound medicines. The second discusses the preparation of ingredients. The third (with the hierarchical tables) and fourth (with most of the recipes) discuss compound medicines. There is also a 3-page table of contents and a 22-page index.With nine pages of contemporary or near contemporary manuscript medicinal recipes and related notes on about 60 otherwise blank leaves that have been … [Click Below for Full Description]

[SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM] and Nahum Tate.
London: Printed by T.M. for Joseph Hindmarsh, at the Black-Bull in Cornhill, 1682. FIRST EDITION. Quarto: An excellent, large copy in half red morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, by Philip Dusel. Miniscule hole in the blank center of the title-page with an early and unobtrusive repair. First edition of one of the scarcer Restoration Shakespeare adaptations. Tate reworked that play in response to the turbulent political crisis of his day.Shakespeare composed Coriolanus sometime between 1605 and 1610. While it is conjectured, based on contemporary clues (the theaters were closed due to plague until December 1609, and Jonson parodied of a line from the play in late 1609 or early 1610), that Coriolanus was performed around December-January 1609/10, the first performance for which we have concrete evidence is the staging of Tate's adaptation on 14 January 1681/2 (although it probably premiered in December 1681.)"The premiere inaugurates both the play's recorded theatrical career and seven of the most politically turbulent decades in England's history. The struggle for power between king and parliament, recurrent Jacobite crises, and the birth pangs of the party system created a mood of national anxiety not unlike the Jacobean-Roman apprehension that inhabits 'Coriolanus', a circumstance not lost on contemporary playwrights and theater managers…"[Shakespeare's] Coriolanus, as sage and study agree, is not a comfortable play. Hacked as it were out of granite, its austere grandeur invites admiration rather than affection… The cast of principal characters is small, and thei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Castelnaudry: C.-P. Chrestien, 1682. Old vellum decorated with a coat of arms by the same hand, later gilt-lettered spine label. ONLY EDITION, THE ?FIRST TRANSPORTATION BOARD GAME. It was created by the engineer and cartographer responsible for planning and executing the project, now a World Heritage Site. The game capitalized on the completion in May 1681 of the Canal du Midi (then Canal Royal) linking the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts of France. The game is played with two dice, which control the progress of the players along the course of the canal from the western limit at the Garonne lock to the deep-water port of Sette at the canal's southeastern mouth. Engraved by Andréossy, the board is a route map with sixty-eight numbered positions - locks, bridges, stations, layovers, restaurants, towns, etc., their positive and negative values reflecting geography, construction difficulty, distances, size of the body of water, amenities and other features. The booklet includes considerable technical detail on lock dimension, basin surface, volume and the like. Long thought to be the first book printed in Castelnaudry, an important depot on the canal, this is certainly the most interesting of the five books produced there prior to 1700.  I have located eight copies of the Rules, all in France and none with the game board. With the assistance of Dr. Adrian Seville, I have identified four game boards, all also all in France and all independent of the Rules booklet.

He provides interesting details of the society, men, and manners he observed" (Blackmer).Some plates bound at wrong position. With an occasional small tear or hole; trimmed, occasionally shaving a running head; and with the frontispiece backed with later paper. A pioneering travel account, including detailed observations of life in the Ottoman Empire, Egypt and other parts of the Middle East. Howgego, to 1800, L134; Wing L2541; cf.

II and therefore a date after 1679"" ( dem Todesjahr von Nicolaus Visscher I ). - Zur Datierung: folgt man der Vermutung von Campbell, dann ist für den Erstdruck dieser Karte der Zeitraum von 1679 bis 1682 anzusetzen, denn im Jahr 1682 erhielt Nivolaus Visscher II das Druckprivileg von Holland und Westfriesland ( s. Koemann III, S. 152 ). Hier vorliegend mit dem Druckprivileg, daher nach 1682 zu datieren. - Als Druckplatte wurde die schon von Cl.J. Visscher hergestellte Platte genommen, nur wurde die Staffage komplett verändert ( die 4 Stadtansichten wurden herausgepunzt und im oberen Bereich durch Kartuschen ersetzt. Reste der ursprünglichen Beschriftung sind noch erkennbar ). Der Karteninhalt sonst mit der bereits 1630 erschienenen Karte identisch. - Oben links die Titelkartusche, oben rechts ein Meilenanzeiger.
