        Opiologia ad mentem academiae naturae curiosorum.

      Jena, Samuel Krebs' Wwe. für Johann Bielcke, 1682. - 4to. (16), 170, (20) pp., final blank. With engraved vignette to title, printed in red an black. (With:) Ettmüller, Michael. De virtute opii diaphoretica dissertatio. Leipzig & Jena, Krebs for Bielcke, [1682]. 48 pp. Contemp. marbled half vellum. Second edition of this early monograph on the pharmacological and therapeutic aspects of opium. "The main text is a reissue of the 1674 edition" (Krivatsy). Wedel not only evaluates the medical literature but also all available travel reports. The chapter entitled "An aphrodisiacum sit opium & mulierem excitet?" provides an overview of the various opinions, including Saar's account from his East Indian journeys noting the use of opium in Batavian brothels, as well as Garcia's contradictory information that opium leads to infertility and impotence (p. 128f.). The title vignette depicts a Turkish opium picker: scratching the poppy seed capsule with his knife, he collects the sap. The appendix contains the first printing of a dissertation on the qualities of opium, written by Michael Ettmüller (d. 1683), who dedicated his work to his colleage Wedel. - G. W. Wedel (1645-1721) was one of the principal physicians of his age. He authored 49 books and was the teacher of several progressively minded medical men. He is credited with the timeless aphorism that "medicine is nothing but the incessant renewal of ignorance." His "Opiologia" won him admission to the Academy of Naturalists, the still-extant "Leopoldina" in Halle. "Wedel stood midway between medieval and modern world views, defending astrology and alchemy and championing iatrochemistry" (DSB XIV, 212). "Wedel appears to have been one of the first to employ the word physiology in its present restricted sense" (Thorndike VIII, s. v.). - Evenly browned throughout; binding slightly rubbed. A fine copy.

Il contributo di Dominique Bouhours è molto apprezzato per lo studio della lingua francese del XVII Secolo. Esso fu concepito, in polemica con gli scrittori di Port Royal, per difendere e continuare le Osservazioni sulla lingua pubblicate pochi anni prima da Vaugelas.

        Raconisium. Ser.mi Emanuelis Philiberti a Sabaudia Cariniani Principis Oppidum.

      Amsterdam, 1682 circa. Dal "Theatrum Sabaudiae", incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 51 x 59 (alla lastra), cm 57 x 66 (il foglio). In basso a sinistra, entro cartiglio, titolo e legenda dei luoghi con 14 rimandi numerati; in basso a destra, entro l'inciso. "Amstelodami Exc. Ioannes Blaeu". In alto ai lati due stemmi. Intorno alla metà del XVII secolo, per il Ducato dei Savoia, attento al proprio ruolo politico, si imponeva la diffusione di un'immagine magnifica che solo un'opera editoriale di grandiose proporzioni avrebbe potuto assicurare: un libro figurato, ove immagini e testi risultassero reciproco completamento per la celebrazione della dinastia. Nasceva così, presso i Blaeu, intorno al 1661, il "Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis Pedemontii Principis Cypri Regis", manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, diretto a tutte le altri corti europee, opera che si sarebbe conclusa solo verso il 1682. Nell'opera (due volumi in folio), le incisioni si fanno testimonianza ed esaltazione della grandezza del sovrano: nel primo tomo, alle antiporte, ritratti, dediche e carte geografiche, fanno seguito le vedute della città capitale con le sue piazze, i suoi più insigni edifici civili e religiosi, le certose e le abbazie, i castelli e le altre strutture di difesa dello Stato, tutti attributi di decoro e magnificenza; seguono quindi le vedute delle principali città del ducato. Il secondo volume descrive le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e del Monferrato, i monumenti storici e archeologici del ducato e le cose da contemplare, perché straordinarie. L'opera riproduceva grosso modo lo schema di precedenti imprese editoriali realizzate dai Blaeu (è chiaro il riferimento al "Teatro delle città principali delle Fiandre.."). Foglio con uno strappetto al margine laterale destro che solo appena tocca l'inciso, peraltro esemplare in ottima morsura e a pieni margini.

        Of the Law of Warre and Peace: The Most Excellent Hugo Grotius His Three Books Treating of the Rights of War & Peace: In the First Is Handled Whether Any War Be Just; in the Second Is Shewed the Causes of War, Both Just and Unjust; In the Third Is Declared What in War Is Lawful

      London Printed by M.W. for Thomas Basset ... and Ralph Smith, 1682-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio. [4], xxi, [5], 570p., frontis, [29]. Bound in contempory leather rebacked, with modern spine. Gilt, Red leather spine label. 6 raised bands. Fine binding and cover. Small pinhead size marginal wormhole from p. 173 to end. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Wing G2126; Goldsmiths 2491; Kress 1557. De jure belli ac pacis libri tres (On the Law of War and Peace: Three books) was first published in 1625 and dedicated to Grotius' patron, Louis XIII. His most lasting work, begun in prison and published during his exile in Paris, was a monumental effort to restrain such conflicts on the basis of a broad moral consensus. The treatise advances a system of principles of natural law, which are held to be binding on all people and nations regardless of local custom.The work is divided into three books: Book I advances his conception of war and of natural justice, arguing that there are some circumstances in which war is justifiable.Book II identifies three 'just causes' for war: self-defense, reparation of injury, and punishment; Grotius considers a wide variety of circumstances under which these rights of war attach and when they do not.Book III takes up the question of what rules govern the conduct of war once it has begun; influentially, Grotius argued that all parties to war are bound by such rules, whether their cause is just or not.The arguments of this work constitute a theory of Just War. Roughly, the second book takes up questions of jus ad bellum (justice in the resort to war) and the third, questions of jus in bello (justice in the conduct of war). The way that Grotius conceived of these matters had, together with Francisco de Vitoria's De potestate civili, a profound influence on the tradition after him and on the later formulation of international law.<br> "The questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of law and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture... Grotius' principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the 'droit naturel,' the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the 18th century and is the foundation of modern international law" (Printing in the Mind of Man 125).

He rose to fame and suspicion among the orthodox Lutheran theologians when he published this seminal text of Puritanism, Baxter's Calvinist and Puritan Treatise of Self-Denyall (1659). Max Weber (1864-1920), the German sociologist, made significant use of Baxter's works in developing his thesis for "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism"

        The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants. And Several Other Lectures, Read Before the Royal Society.

      London: W. Rawlins for the author, 1682. - Folio (12 2/8 x 7 4/8 inches). (Margins of preliminaries renewed, persistent marginal wormtrack top outer corner gatherings N-2U). 83 fine numbered engraved plates, including 3 folding and two double-page and mounted on guards, woodcut headpieces and initials. Contemporary calf (rebacked and corners renewed to style, endpapers renewed). 'THE BIRTH OF MICROSCOPIC ANATOMY OF PLANTS' (Grolier Science) First collected edition. "This key work collected together all the botanical research that Grew had presented to the Royal Society during the previous decade. Grew was a conscious pioneer in a hitherto neglected area: as he put it in dedicating his "Comparative Anatomy of Trunks" to Charles II in 1675, 'I may, without vanity, say thus much, That it was my fortune, to be the first that ever gave a Map of the Country' (sig. A2v). It is on his findings in this area that his reputation as a scientist is chiefly based. His work was primarily marked by his brilliant observation and description of plants and their component parts; having begun by making observations using only the naked eye, Grew supplemented these with the use of a microscope under the tutelage of his colleague Hooke. His presentations to the society began in 1672-4 with the roots, branches, and trunks of plants, proceeding thereafter to their leaves, flowers, fruit, and seeds. In each area he was innovative, studying for the first time many features of plants that have since been taken for granted, such as their cell-like structure and the growth rings in wood, and deploying techniques which have since become commonplace, such as the use of transverse, radial, and tangential longitudinal sections to analyse the structure of stems and roots.

        The Anatomy of Plants. With an Idea of a Philosophical History of Plants.

      London: W. Rawlins for the author, 1682. - Folio (14 x 9 inches). 83 fine numbered engraved plates, including 5 double-page and mounted on guards, woodcut headpieces and initials (plate 72 bound as frontispiece, plates 36, 38 and 40 laid down, lacking plate 37 with a duplicate of plate 36 as substitute, plates 20 forward affected by a large dampstain in the bottom margin). Modern half brown morocco gilt. Provenance: bookplate of the Cornelius J. Hauck (1893-1967) Collection at the Cincinnati Museum Center on the front paste-down. 'THE BIRTH OF MICROSCOPIC ANATOMY OF PLANTS' (Grolier Science) First collected edition. "This key work collected together all the botanical research that Grew had presented to the Royal Society during the previous decade. Grew was a conscious pioneer in a hitherto neglected area: as he put it in dedicating his "Comparative Anatomy of Trunks" to Charles II in 1675, 'I may, without vanity, say thus much, That it was my fortune, to be the first that ever gave a Map of the Country' (sig. A2v). It is on his findings in this area that his reputation as a scientist is chiefly based. His work was primarily marked by his brilliant observation and description of plants and their component parts; having begun by making observations using only the naked eye, Grew supplemented these with the use of a microscope under the tutelage of his colleague Hooke. His presentations to the society began in 1672-4 with the roots, branches, and trunks of plants, proceeding thereafter to their leaves, flowers, fruit, and seeds. In each area he was innovative, studying for the first time many features of plants that have since been taken for granted, such as their cell-like structure and the growth rings in wood, and deploying techniques which have since become commonplace, such as the use of transverse, radial, and tangential longitudinal sections to analyse the structure of stems and roots.

      4to. Pp. (xx), 406, (ii), (24) table. With engraved portrait of Gen. Stanislas Jablonowski, one folding engraved map, 3 engraved plates and 5 large engraved vignettes. Contemporary calf, borders ruled in gilt, flat spine with elaborate gilt decoration and red title label, r.e. Bookplate on front paste down. First edition of Avril's narrative of his two journeys through Central Asia aiming to discover new overland routes to China. Philippe Avril, Jesuit professor of philosophy and mathematics at Paris, was summoned by Father Ferdinand Verbiest in Peking to join the mission there. For eight years, from 1682 to 1690, Avril travelled overland reaching North and Northwest China but ultimately failing to reach Peking. This narrative covers both journeys; the first by caravan through Syria, Kurdistan, Armenia, Persia and across the Caspian to Astrakan where he had to turn back, and the second about his attempt to cross Siberia from Moscow to China, with his return to the West through Constantinople, Moldavia, Poland and Lithuania. Avril's narrative is based on earlier Jeusit reports but also on new information given to him by caravan travellers and rulers he met en route, in particular the king of Syria. Cordier BS 2088.

      Kiel, Joachim Reumann, 1682. - &#150; Beigebunden: Derselbe. Teutsche Gedichte. 4 Bl., 471 S. Kiel, Joachim Reumann, 1682. Erste Ausgabe der beiden bedeutendsten Werke Morhofs; es sind alle seine Schriften in deutscher Sprache. Neben dem Versuch einer Etymologie der deutschen Sprache findet sich hier die berühmte erste wirkliche Geschichte der deutschen Literatur, die bis weit ins 18. Jahrhundert hinein hochgeschätzt wurde. "He views the literature of all of Western Europe, and it is higly interesting to note his appraisal of the English language, which is negative throughout, and of English literature, which is considerably more favourable. On p. 229 he cites Shakespeare" (Faber du Faur). Wichtig sind Morhofs kritische Urteile; ausführlich berichtet er über die mittelalterliche Dichtung, erwähnt lobend den schon längst vergessenen Hans Sachs, stuft die Dichtungen Flemings als erster höher ein als die Opitz' und erwähnt als erster außerhalb Englands Shakespeare. "Er stellte einen Überblick über die anderen neueren europäischen Literaturen voran (u. a. als erster Betrachtungen über die nordische Literatur sowie eine erste Übersetzung aus dem Finnischen) um der deutschen den ihr gebührenden Platz anweisen zu können. Aus diesem Grund ist er häufig der früheste Historiker der Weltliteratur genannt worden" (NDB). Außerdem enthält das Werk eine sehr gute Poetik mit vielen Beispielen. Unter den eigenen poetischen Werken Morhofs ragt das dramatische Ballett für eine Geburtstagsfeier Christian Albrechts zu Schleswig-Holstein hervor. Seine manchmal &#150; wie hier &#150; beigebundenen 'Teutschen Gedichte' erschienen bei dieser einzigen Ausgabe zu Lebzeiten noch separat und wurden erst bei den posthumen (ab 1700) auch titelmäßig integriert. Man hat Morhof (1639-1691), der 1665 einer der Gründungsprofessoren der Universität Kiel und ab 1669 wiederholt deren Rektor war, früher gerne als zu Recht vergessenen Prototyp des gelehrten Kompilators angesehen. Sein Unfall, bei dem er in der Amsterdamer Bibliothek mitten im eifrigen Studium fast von herabfallenden Folianten erschlagen worden wäre, galt als symbolhaftes Ereignis. Es muss jedoch nachdenklich stimmen, dass Morhofs Hauptschriften (neben diesem der 'Polyhistor') noch bis zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts zu den epochalen und lebendigen Büchern gerechnet wurden. "Keine der Poetiken seiner Zeit hat so allgemein und nachhaltig auf die folgende Generation gewirkt. Wir können diese Tatsache konstatiren; um sie zu verstehen, ist der Blick auf die politische und geistesgeschichtliche Verfassung der Zeit nötig, in der dieses durch den Verlauf der Geschichte mehr als siebenfach versiegelte Buch geschrieben wurde" (Boëtius im Nachwort zum &#150; problematischen &#150; Neudruck der Ausgabe von 1700). So verweist Herder in seinen 'Volksliedern' 1778 auf ihn: "Wer will, lese es also im Morhof", eine Bemerkung, die nahe legt, dass dieses heute fast verschollene Buch damals noch leicht erreichbar gewesen sein muss. Auch Goethe berichtet in 'Dichtung und Wahrheit' über die Bildungserlebnisse, die ihm der 'Morhof' beschert habe und ebenso ging Klopstock, wie seine Abschiedsrede 1745 in Schulpforta belegt, bei Morhof in die Schule. &#150; Ohne den vorderen fliegenden Vorsatz. Titel im unteren weißen Rand mit in starker Schrift überschriebenem altem Besitzvermerk. Leicht gebräunt.

FIRST EDITION 1682 of expanded version of Leybourn's Art of Dialling first published in (1669), small folio, approximately 300 x 210 mm, 12 x 8 inches, portrait frontispiece, 23 engraved plates, of which 10 folding, plus 3 engravings in the text, pages: [10], 76, 89-188, [13], 189-192, 12, 181-226, 273-330, pagination is somewhat irregular but register is continuous. Bound in full early calf, rebacked to style with raiswed bands and gilt lettered morocco label, new endpapers, all edges red.

A very good copy of the rare expanded edition, complete with all plates and housed in a fine sturdy custom made cloth bound clamshell box, with gilt lettered leather label to spine. William Leybourn (1626-1719) mathematician, was in his time a distinguished land and quantity surveyor (although he began his working life as a printer). Such was his prestige, he was frequently employed to survey the estates of gentlemen, and he also helped to survey the remnants of London after the great fire of 1666. A prolific and eclectic author, his work The Compleat Surveyor, which was first published under that title in 1653 is regarded as a classic of its kind and (in collaboration with one Vincent Wing) the 1649 volume Urania Practica, was the first book in English devoted to astronomy. In our book in the address To The Reader (August 1681) Leybourn explains the sources for some of the text: 'Of the first tractate, the examples are all (or most of them) the same as are Mr. Wells in his Sciographia ... The second tractate was, partly a translation out of Magnon, by Mr. Thomas Gibson: and the third is partly Mr. Samuel Foster's ... The seventh tractate came to my hands in a Latine manuscript of Mr. Samuel Fosters, written with his own hand in anno 1640 ... The ninth tractate is wholly Mr. Samuel Fosters ... The tenth tractate also, is wholly his, and was ... transcribed from a manuscript of his, which he ... entituled Gold ... The eleventh tractate ... is Mr. Fosters also'.

Äbte Nr. 41). - ?So dann ich vor Jahren als damahliger ordinari Pfaeffesserischer Physicus von underschidlichen Standts Persohnen angelangt worden, mich der Müh zu underwinden, daß jenige, was von meiner Experienz beobachtet, oder von anderen nur in Compendio kurtz eingeschrancket, dem Patienten zu Gunst, gnugsamb außzufuehren: als hab ich grosser Herren Wincken billich für respective gnädigen Befelch außdeutende, selbigen zu gebuehrendem Respect gegenwertiges Opusculum zu samen getragen.? (Bl. 2, verso). - Gliederung des Inhalts: I.1 Örtliche Lage und Fassung des Wassers, I.2 Metallisches und mineralisches Muttergestein, Wassertemperatur; II.1-2 Purgieren und Aderlassen, II.3 Ratschläge für Anreise und Ankunft; III.1 Abklärungen zu Trink- und Badekur, III.2 Indikationen, III.3 Ratschläge für die Trinkkur, III.4 Mögliche Symptome, ev. Medikationen; IV.1 Richtlinien für eine Badekur, IV.2 Ausschlag und andere Reaktionen, IV.3 Unterbrüche der Badekur, IV.4 Diät; V.1 Indikationen für das Pfäferser Bad, mit Beispielen (pp. 83-140), V.2 Kontraindikationen, V.3 Zum Verhalten nach der Trink- oder Badekur. -- Mathäus Zimmermann, von St. Gallen, Dr. med., war Badearzt in Pfäfers, dann Stadtschreiber in Rapperswil (HBLS). - Eingehend mit den ?indifferenten Quellen von Pfäffers und Ragaz? befasst sich Conrad Meyer-Ahrens. Dessen Ausführungen ist zu entnehmen, dass die 1680er Jahre für den solid etablierten Badebetrieb eine bedeutende Umbruchsphase darstellten: ?Am 11. März 1680 aber wurde die Quelle durch Felsstücke, Eis- und Schneemassen so verschüttet, dass auch nicht eine Spur des Thermalwassers mehr zu finden war; doch fand man [.] die Quelle ganz unerwarteter Weise bereits schon am 1. Mai desselben Jahres wieder [.]. Im Jahr 1704 legte Abt Bonifacius I. Tschupp den Grund zu den noch bestehenden Kurgebäuden, die im Jahr 1716 von Abt Bonifacius II. zur Gilgen vollendet wurden.? (Die Heilquellen und Kurorte der Schweiz, Bd. 2, 1860, p. 497; 2. Aufl. 1867, p. 395). Unklar bleibt, was in den 25 Jahren nach den Schäden von 1680 an Wiederherstellung geleistet wurde. (Vgl. dazu die detailliertere Baugeschichte in: E. Rothenhäusler, Der Bezirk Sargans. KD des Kantons St. Gallen, Bd. 1, 1951, pp. 236 ff.). Der Zwischenbetrieb scheint jedoch gesichert gewesen zu sein, denn das ?Bad kam dann unter Abt Bonifacius I. (1677-1706) zu hoher Blüte? (GLS 3, 1905, p. 728). Genau in dieser Zeit beanspruchte allerdings eine Klosterreform zusätzliche Aufmerksamkeit. ?Der Reform sollte vorab eine engere Verbindung mit Einsiedeln dienen, für die Abt Augustin Reding sehr eintrat.

        Memorials of the English Affairs, Or, an Historical Account of What Passed From the Beginning of the Reign of King Charles the First, to King Charles the Second His Happy Restauration

      London : Printed for Nathaniel Ponder 1682 - Folio. [8], 710p, [15]. Bound in contemporary leather. Boards detached. Gilt spine. Page ends washed red. Good binding and cover. Wear to extremities. Lacking two leaves, p427-430. Armorial bookplate of Edward Parker of Browsholme, York on front pastedown. Contemporary owners name of John Coxon on title page. Former owners notation and underlining throughout. Same owners notes on FEP. Lowndes p2905. Wing W1986 The Memorials of the English Affairs is a publication formed after the Restoration of the edited diary, writings and newspaper articles of Bulstrode Whitelocke. It was edited by Arthur Annesley, The Early of Anglesey, and covered the years from Mar. 27, 1625 to May 29th 1660. A major source for the Puritan Revolution, ââ?¬Å?The Memorials, of course, increase in interest as the times become more and more critical; the account of the kingââ?¬â?¢s trial is full of sympathy, which may or may not have been ex post facto. Indeed, in general, Whitelocke showed throughout the civil troubles, the moderation which accorded with his training and his disposition; and this quality which, at the restoration, preserved to him the bulk of his fortune, is impressed upon the character and style of his Memorials at large.ââ?¬Â&#157; (Cambridge History of English and American Lit., Vol. VII, Ch. 9, No. 25) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Document Signed (with her mark), on paper.

      A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur de lis, or trefoil; however we find no match in Briquet or Gravell.

"Pacifici a Lapide" är en pseudonym för den kritiskt kommenterande rättsvetenskapsmannen Philipp Andreas Oldenburger. Pufendorf kallades 1661 till professor i naturrätt vid universitetet i det kalvinistiska Heidelberg. Där skrev han föreliggande arbete som utkom första gången 1667 under pseudonymen "Severini de Monzambano". Det var en sedermera ryktbar kritik av det tysk-romerska rikets otidsenliga konstitution. Pufendorf misstänktes vara upphovsman till arbetet och hans ställning i Heidelberg blev därför något osäker. Genom sin bror Esaias förmedling erbjöds han att bli professor i natur- och folkrätt vid universitetet i Lund

        Le Due Regole della Prospettiva Prattica...

      Bologna: Gioseffo Longhi, 1682. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio (332x228mm). [10], 145pp., [7]. Engraved additional title by Cherubino Alberti, woodcut decoration on title-p., woodcut initials, woodcut and engraved diagrams and geometric illustrations (some full-page) demonstrating perspective, woodcut device on final verso. In Italian. Edited with commentary by Ignazio Danti. Contemporary vellum over modern pasteboard, ms. title to spine; (text block loose in binding, title frayed and with bookseller's stamps, moderately browned, some slight dampstains, marginal worming toward end, few paper repairs). Vignola was one of the great Italian architects of the 16th century Mannerist style. Of his two published works, "Prospettiva Prattica" was Vignola's second treatise and was published ten years after his death by Ignazio Danti, professor in mathematics at Bologna. In it, Vignola argues for a naturalistic justification of linear perspective by explaining the anatomy and physiology of the human eye. He favored one-point perspective rather than two-point methods such as the bifocal construction. With many fine engravings by Vignola was working on the copper plates at the time of his death. Danti further illustrated the text with woodcuts. This combination of woodcut and copper-engraved illustrations was maintained in the following Rome editions -- of 1611 and 1644 -- but abandoned in the Bologna edition of 1682, which contains only woodcuts. The clarity and ease of use of Vignola's treatise caused it to become popular in succeeding centuries the most published book in architectural history. An important landmark of Renaissance architectural theory and illustration. An increasingly scarce work. Cicognara 810; Fowler 386; Riccardi, 88.

        PARAGUAY, NORTHERN ARGENTINA & URUGUAY: Paraquariae Provinciae Soc. Iesu Cum Adiacentibus Novissima Descriptio Post iteratas peregrinationes et plures observationes Patrum Missionariorum .

      - An attractive example of Matthäus Seutter&#146;s edition of Juan Francisco Dávila's rare map of the Jesuit Reductions of the Río de la Plata Basin. This fine map is an Augsburg edition of Juan Francisco Dávila's epic map of the Río de la Plata Basin, focusing on the Jesuit missions of Paraguay, which was the most complete and advanced depiction of the region for much was the 18th Century. The perspective extends from Peru, and the source of the Río de la Plata at &#145;Xareyes Lacas&#146; to its mouth between Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The map embraces the central part of South America from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, including most of Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile, with rivers and tributaries, tribes, territories and settlements. The map includes symbols Indicating existing and former Spanish towns and Jesuit missions. Juan Francisco Dávila&#146;s (1682-1733) map was originally published in Rome and was subsequently issued in various editions printed throughout Europe. His map was much admired for being a tremendous improvement over earlier efforts, especially with respect to its more accurate depiction of the two bays at Montevideo, a corrected and more detailed image of the Parana Delta, and a vastly improved treatment of the various sources of the Río Uruguay and its tributaries. Matthaus Seutter (1678-1757) was the official cartographer to the Holy Roman Emperor and one of the leading mapmakers of his time. He apprenticed under Johann Baptist Homann of Nuremburg, and founded the Seutter-Lotter dynasty that would produce important cartography until the 1790s. Historical Background The present edition of the map appeared during a period of escalating tensions between the Spanish and Portuguese Crowns, on one hand, and the Jesuit Order in South America, on the other. As shown on the map, since the 17th Century, the Jesuits had constructed an archipelago of missions and outposts stretching through modern-day Paraguay, eastern Bolivia, northern Argentina and interior of southern Brazil. These settlements came to be known as the Jesuit Reductions (Reducciones Jesuiticas), which were created in order to most effectively Christianize, tax, and govern the indigenous population, most notably the Tupi-Guarani peoples. Over time, the Jesuits managed to create a society largely distinct from the coastal and mountain regions of South America, which were controlled directly by the Spanish and Portuguese crowns. An abundance of disciplined native labor and careful stewardship by the Jesuit friars created a thriving agrarian economy in the Reductions, providing the Jesuits with a massive income. The Jesuits armed and trained the Guaranis to form militias for the defense of the Reductions. While the Spanish and Portuguese crowns technically owned the territory, their officials had little or no influence on the region, which for all practical purposes functioned as an independent Jesuit state. Making matters even more interesting, many leading Jesuits in the Reductions, such as the Swiss Father Martin Schmid, were neither Spanish nor Portuguese subjects, and thus had no particular loyalty to either Iberian crown. Importantly, the Guarani militias were increasingly coming into open conflict with the Spanish and Portuguese settlers in neighboring regions. Eventually, matters came to a head in 1754, when the Portuguese expelled the Jesuits from their Brazilian Reductions. During the Guarani War of 1756, a force of renegade Guarani militia fought a brief war against Spanish and Portuguese troops. While the Spanish and Portuguese decisively won the conflict, and while the Jesuits did not endorse or openly assist the Guarani rebellion, the Jesuits were blamed by both Madrid and Lisbon for having created the Guarani threat in the first place. The Spanish Crown came to consider the Jesuit Reductions to be a grave security threat to their New World Empire. Moreover, following the Seven Years&#146; War (1756-63), the cash-strapped Spa

Titelblatt in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, 33 Bll., 1272 Spalten, 10 Bll., 754 Sp., 6 Bll., 406 Sp., 4 Bll., 158 Sp., 42 Bll., 236 Sp., 7 Bll. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband. Das gesamte Corpus juris canonici: Decretum Gratiani, Decretales, Liber Sextus, Clementinen und Extravaganten ohne die Glosse. - Die Bezeichnung Corpus juris canonici als Gesamttitel fuer die einzelnen päpstlichen Rechtsbücher setzt sich erst im Laufe des 16. Jahrhunderts fest und wird regelmäßig bei den unglossierten Ausgaben des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts gebraucht. Papst Gregor XIII. benutzt den Titel Corpus juris canonici erstmals offiziell bei der Editio Romana aus dem Jahre 1582. Die Zusammenfassung der päpstlichen Gesetzbücher und die umfassende Betitelung änderte nichts an der inneren Systematik. Die einzelnen päpstlichen Rechtsbücher behalten ihre Selbständigkeit: Decretum Gratiani, das um 1140 von dem Mönch Gratian in Bologna als Lehrbuch verfasst worden ist und später Gesetzesautorität erhielt; die Dekretalen oder Liber Extra, die von Papst Gregor IX. im Jahre 1234 publiziert worden sind und durch Versendung am 5. September des gleichen Jahres an die Universität Paris Gesetzeskraft erhielten; das Liber Sexus des Jahres 1298, die Clementinae des Jahres 1317 und die Extravagantes des Jahres 1325 sind weitere Bestandteile des Corpus iuris canonici.
