        Le Due Regole della Prospettiva Prattica.

      Gioseffo Longhi, Bologna 1682 - 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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 (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

        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’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 ‘Xareyes Lacas’ 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’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’ War (1756-63), the cash-strapped Spa

        1682 Vellum PIERRE JURIEU - DERNIERS EFFORTS DE L'INNOCENCE Published by A. Arondeus FIRST EDITION

LES DERNIERS EFFORTS DE L'INNOCENCE AFFLIGÉE - Volume I and II (bound together in this single book), par (PIERRE JURIEU). A LA HAYE : CHEZ ABRAHAM ARONDEUS, Marchand Libraire au Palais, a l'Enseigne du Roy de France, M. DC. LXXXII (1682). This book almost immediately became an important and controversial work that was quickly reprinted, most notably by Chez David Dufour, Ville Franche, who republished the book in several editions also in the year 1682. VELLUM BOUND, small format 3" x 5.25", two parts in this one book (complete), pagination: [4], 182; [2],160 pages. I collated both Volume I and Volume II page-by-page with the copy of each volume held in the Rare Book Holdings of the Bavarian State Library, Germany. Those rare copies were digitized in 2010. Condition: The vellum covers are yellowed with age, stained, worn through along some of the edges, are peeling at the folds and edges, and have a 1/2 piece missing at the bottom of the spine; the inner rear hinge has completely split, exposing the inner binding and meaning that the vellum covers are almost disbound (a strong tug would remove them from the inner bound text. There is interesting very early writing, in French, on the front pastedown, the rear free endpaper, and on a laid-in slip of paper; there is also a signature on the very last page of text of Volume II. There is a handwritten date of 1712 on the front pastedown, but I don't know if all the writing is from that time or not. The front and rear pastedowns are soiled, creased, and have large tears. The first page of Volume I is soiled, has a dime-size edge chip (not affecting text), a couple hand-written letters "m" and "o.u." and a signature. Overall the inner pages are very nice - light foxing, mostly on the first and last few pages, some soiling, overall still tight, bright, clean and unmarked. Complete TRUE FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING (Published by Chez Abraham Arondeus, La Haye) of this IMPORTANT WORK by PIERRE JURIEU. This true first printing is SCARCE, with copies only to be found in a few rare book rooms of Major Universities and National Collections (see WorldCat). Fair

      Konstanz, Hautt für Mantelin, 1682. - Erste Ausgabe, das wichtigste Werk des Dichters, "his most poetical book, and it became the model for his later works" (Faber du Faur). "Man kann diese episch-lyrische Schäferei, in der sich Elemente der antiken Bukolik, zeitgenössischer Gesellschaftsdichtung, gelehrter Bildung und naive Volkstümlichkeit, romantischer Formensinn und oberdeutsche Mundart ein Stelldichein geben, als Beispiel für ein Zusammenfließen ansehen, in welchem sich das Entlegenste zu einem reizvollen, harmonischen Gebilde aneinanderfügt" (Newald). Mindestens genauso bedeutend wie die Dichtung sind die Vertonungen der Lieder, die alle von Laurentius selber stammen. Mit ihrer einfallsreichen, manchmal dem Volkslied nahestehenden Melodik gehören sie zu den schönsten Liedkompositionen der Zeit (vgl. dazu Vetter, Frühes dt. Lied und MGG VIII 335: "Schubert des 17. Jahrhunderts"). J. Martin (1633-1702) nannte sich Laurentius von Schnüffis nach seinem Heimatort in Vorarlberg. Nach mehreren Jahren Wanderschaft wurde er Mitglied der Hofschauspielertruppe des Erzherzogs Karl Ferdinand von Innsbruck. Nach dessen Tod 1655 zog er sich ins Kapuzinerkloster Zug und später nach Konstanz zurück, wo er auch starb. – Eine Ecke mit kleinem, restauriertem Papierfehler.

        Hierocles, Upon the Golden Verses of the Pythagoreans. Translated immediately out of the Greek into English (by John Norris)

Laing, 'Dictionary of Anonymous and Pseudonymous English Literature', Vol. 2, 1883, p. 1095) (Details: Neatly & recently rebacked; head & foot of spine ruled gilt; name of Hierocles gilt on the back; double fillet gilt border on both covers) (Condition: leather on the covers cracking and worn at the extremes; corners abraded; paper yellowing; title somewhat soiled; lacking leaf A1, probably a half title, or a blank. The online copy of the University of Michigan looks similar to ours, and has, as our copy, directly after the title leaf A3. All other copies we have located seem to lack A1. Small name erased on the title with ink; ink erasion of a longer name on second leaf and on the last leaf; upper corner second leaf skilfully repaired with paper; some small inkstains; upper margin cut short) (Note: The Golden Verses (carmina aurea) are commonly attributed to the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, born ca. 570 B.C. on the island of Samos, His life is enshrouded in legend. 'He wrote probably nothing (though works were later fathered on him) and already in Aristotle's day his life was obsured by legend'. (OCD 2nd ed. 903) We know of him through Diogenes Laertius, Plato, Plutarch, Iamblichus, Porphyrius, Hierocles and others. He is said to have taught that the soul is a fallen divinity 'confined within the body as a tomb and condemned to a cycle of reincarnation as man, animal, or plant, from which, however, it may win release by cultivation of an Apolline purity'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 904) He is the founder of a sect, the followers of which obeyed to strict ascetic rules, e.g. not eating flesh of killed animals. Pythagoras' speculations concerning the philosophy of nature were important for the development of mathematics and music theory. He is said to have called the universe 'kosmos' because of its inherent ordered structure. Pythagoras would have interpreted the world as a whole through numbers, the arithmetic study of which he was believed to have originated. His moral teachings were probably tranfered in the archaic form of (often aenigmatic) sayings. The study of the life and work of Pythagoras is obscured by the fact that already the oldest Pythagoreans ascribed their own utterances to the Master of the sect. The proverbial 'autos epha', Pythagoras himself said so, was considered as an ultimate proof of validity. His Golden Verses were well known among educated readers in antiquity, though the testimonia indicate that the authorship of the Golden Verses poem was already problematical for the ancients. The 'carmina aurea' consist of 71 didactic hexameters. Every scholar who ever looked at these verses seems to have his own opinion about its author, origin and date. (Quot homines, tot sententiae) It is however clear 'from the testimonia that the Golden Verses was highly regarded in late antiquity as a concise formulation of principles of the philosophical life. The Neoplatonists, starting with Iamblichus, probably all used the poem as a propaedeutic moral instruction, preparing the way for philosophy proper'. ('The Pythagorean Golden Verses'. With introduction and commentary by J.C. Thom, Leiden, 1995, p. 13) Pythagoras' body of thought was incorporated in Platonism, and found followers well into late antiquity. In modern times Pythagoras played an important role in the devolopment of the study of natural sciences. Gallilei, Copernicus and Kepler appealed to him. The late antique Greek philosopher Hierocles Alexandrinus, 5th century A.D., wrote a elaborate commentary on the Golden verses. This late neoplatonist was influenced by Porphyry (2nd century A.D.), who taught that the union with God could be reached through philosophy and an ascetic life, and Iamblichus (3rd century), who introduced theosophical fantasies in Neoplatonism, and substited magic for mysticism, and 'theourgia' for 'theôria'. Hierocles was persecuted for his fierce paganism, and was sent into exile. The learned English philosopher and mystic divine John Norris, 1657-1711, produced, in order 'to doe the World so great a Kindness' an excellent translation of this 'divine Treasure'. (A5 verso). Norris studied classics and philosophy at Exeter-College in Oxford. He was dissatisfied with his tutors, and went on his own directly to sources of ancient wisdom for real inspiration, Aristotele, Plotinus, Proclus, and Plato, his favourite. Norris was elected fellow of All Souls in 1680, and allthough an Oxonian, he is considered to be a member of the 'Cambridge Platonists', a Cambridge group of philosophers who exercised an important influence during the latter half of the 17th century. They were in favour of tolerance, and considered dogmatic uniformity unattainable. Religion is, they learned, the spiritual life springing up in the soul, and the union with the divine, which manifests itself, very Pythagorean and Porphyrean, through the moral life. This is how Norris begins his preface: 'I design no other apology for the translation of this divine book, than its own great exellency and usefulness to the world'. (A5 recto) In the preface he defends his motives for translating this pagan work against attacks of 'ill-natur'd Christians'. (A5 verso) Norris's translation is not at second hand. He translated the Greek immediately from the 'Prototype', he says. He expects the English public to be grateful for a trustworthy translation of Hierocles' masterpiece, after the shoddy translation of 1583 by Curterius, 'for Curterius the Latin interpreter is often mistaken in the true sense of the Author, and would have prov'd an 'Ignis fatuus' to me if I had follow'd him'.

It is remarkable that the drawings for this work were made when the author was about twenty-two and the book was published before he was thirty. Besides describing the plates, the text is largely devoted to exposing the many errors of Serlio, Palladio and Freart".

Explained According to the Fundamentals of the English Government, And the Declarations of the Same Made in Parliament by Many Statutes. Published for the Prevention of Popish Designs Against the Lives of Many Protestant Lords and Commoners, Who Stand Firm to the Religion and Ancient Government of England. London: Printed for Benj. Alsop, 1682. 168 pp. Octavo (6" x 3-3/4"). Recent calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and gilt title to spine. Moderate toning to text, negligible faint dampstaining to rear quarter of text, faint dampspotting to a few leaves, internally clean. * Second edition. This influential pamphlet defined a hearing before grand jury of peers as a fundamental English right. An assertion of the priority of the law over the English crown, it was written to support the right of a grand jury to reject the bill of indictment against Anthony Ashley-Cooper, First Earl of Shaftesbury, issued by Charles II (a Catholic). Published anonymously, this work is attributed in most sources to Somers. A barrister of the Middle Temple and an important Whig statesman, he was Lord Chancellor of England during the reigns of William and Mary and Queen Anne and presided over the framing of the Bill of Rights (1689). As one would suspect, this book was studied by the American founding fathers. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:378 (34). English Short-Title Catalogue R10363.

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, “The Memorials, of course, increase in interest as the times become more and more critical; the account of the king’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.” (Cambridge History of English and American Lit., Vol. VII, Ch. 9, No. 25)

      Joseph Jacobs, Antwerp 1682 - 4to(20.0 x 16.3 cm). Contemporary full black calf. Some breaks along spine, cords and boards firmly attached. Some wear to corners and ends of spine. Collation: [40], 296, [18] pp. +14 copper engraved plates, folded. Plates and frontispiece were engraved by Francois Ertinger. The Frontispiece was a design prepared by C. E. Best. There is also a full page engraved coat of arms of dedicatee, Justus de Nobelaer. In typical Baroque effusiveness, the title page includes a synopsis of the contents. Included are: detailed descriptions of the exotic plants including their flowers, leaves and fruit; how to plant and care for the trees; citrus diseases and pests. The text and plates provide extensive discussion and illustration on the cultivation of exotic fruit trees. These include lemon, orange, passion fruit, lime trees, pomegranates, laurels and others. The beautiful engraved botanical plates are based on those done by botanist Giovanni Battista Ferrari and also engraved by Francois Ertinger. The plates contain fruit, flower and leaves of the plant. This is most useful for identifying cultivated or indigenous plant. An example being the copper engraving of the orange by Ertinger titled "aurantiae flores," or flowers of the orange, shows not just the flowers, but the leaves and fruit of the orange as well. Ertinger was born in 1640 in Schwaben, Germany, but worked in Antwerp where in the 1670s. He was a master of the St. Lucas guild. Here he collaborated with the priest and botanist Franciscus van Sterbeeck on this book. The citrus illustrations are closely based on those by the Italian botanist Giovanni Battista Ferrari, whose 1646 Hesperides started the European citrus book trend.Franciscus van Sterbeeck (1631-1693), a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, he suffered chronic illness and turned his attention to botany. (Hunt, 365; Nissen, BBI 1893; Pritzel, 8948) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Verfasser einer Autobiographie und zahlreicher Schriften verschiedensten Inhalts und gilt als eine der kompliziertesten und undurchsichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der jüdisch-italienischen Kultur seiner Zeit. Leone führte ein unruhiges Leben: Er nahm einen Beruf nach dem anderen auf und wurde ein besessener Spieler. was ihn und seine Familie oft in finanzielle Bedrängnis brachte. Sein Lieblingssohn Mordechai starb im November 1617 bei alchimistischen Experimenten. in deren Folge ihn sein Vater tödlich vergiftet hatte.
