        SAMUEL BUTLER. Hudibras. In Three Parts. Written in the Time of the Late Wars. Corrected and Amended, with Several Additions and Annotations. [Bound with] THOMAS D'URFEY. Butler's Ghost: Or, Hudibras. The Fourth Part. With Reflections upon these Times.

      R. Chiswell, T. Sawbridge, R. Bentley, and G. Wells; Joseph Hindmarsh 1682 - Two separately published works bound together, details as follows: HUDIBRAS:- Hudibras. In Three Parts. Written in the Time of the Late Wars. Corrected and Amended, with Several Additions and Annotations. London: Nathaniel Sackett, 1694. The Second Part. Corrected and Amended with Several Additions and Annotations. London; R. Chiswell, T. Sawbridge, R. Bentley, and G. Wells, 1693. The Third and Last Part. London: Thomas Horne, 1694. [ii],221,[1]pp.; [ii],223-412pp; [ii],254pp. Separate title-page to each part. BUTLER'S GHOST:- London: Joseph Hindmarsh, 1682. First edition. [viii],188,[iv]pp. Wing D.2703. Grolier 335. Pforzheimer 342. §A seventeenth-century copy of Hudibras contemporaneously bound with it's spurious continuation by D'Urfey, this is also the COWPER FAMILY COPY. Prelim. blank bears the signature of Spencer Cowper [judge, 1669-1728; the poet's grandfather; tried for murder, 1699]. Below this, in a childish hand, is the name Thea[dora] Cowper [d.1824, the poet's cousin: his romantic infatuation with her being one of the cornerstones of his biography]. Below this are 20 lines (and 6 on the verso) of inked notes about Butler in the hand of Ashley Cowper [minor poet, 1701-1788; the poet's uncle & the father of Theadora]. Later inked note to front free endpaper reading, "Captain Jno Oakes Hardy, Royal Navy. The Gift of his ever esteemd and much lamented friend & relation Ashley Cowper. 1775" establishes Ashley Cowper's later ownership. It is therefore likely this was a book that William Cowper, the poet, would have been able to consult in his uncle's library at 30 Southampton Row which "became Cowper's unofficial residence from 1750 to 1753" (Ryskamp, 'WIlliam Cowper of the Inner Temple, Esq.'). Further ownership signature of Hardy, dated 1792, to prelim. blank, & his own inked notes to lower half of front free endpaper. Signature & stamp of J.D. Durell, dated 1833, to front pastedown. Seven lines of verse quotations to last pastedown, in an early hand. Numbered throughout in ink - until p.129 of Butler's Ghost - every five lines, in an 18th-century hand; several other underlinings or brief marginal notes. §A generally very good copy, however Hudibras LACKS leaf Cc (which is present in expertly-aged facsimile); last (advertisement) leaf of Butler's Ghost is defective: torn, with loss of one third of the contents. Lately professionally rebacked in period-style calf, contrasting label. Original boards and endpapers preserved. *Further digital images available on application.

        CURAE POSTERIORES DE BARBARISMIS ET IDIOTISMIS SERMONIS LATINI., [Bound with] DE LATINITATE MEDIAE ET INFIMAE AETATIS LIBER, SIVE ANTIBARBARUS, Recognitus Denuo et Innumeris locis Auctus

      Ienae (Jena) Io. Bielckii 1680 [and] 1682 - Two books bound as one. Second edition of the Curae Posteriores and second edition of the Latinitate Mediae. With the engraved pictorial title dated 1680. 12mo, handsomely bound in contemporary antique vellum with yap edges. [xvi], 317, [25 index]; [xxiv], 280, [24 index] pp. A very fine and proper copy, unusually well preserved. Rare thus. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT EARLY PRINTING FROM JENA. Two works bound together on the study of Latin by one of the most learned philologists of the 17th century. Christopher Cellarius studied at several German universities, he taught moral philosophy and the Oriental languages at Weissenfels. In 1673, he was made rector of the school at Weimar, and afterwards of the seminaries at Zeitz and Merseburg, and, finally, professor of eloquence and history at Halle, where he died in 1707. He is also noted for being the first person to divide Western history into the Ancient, Medieval and New periods, and in doing so is credited for creating the term "Middle Ages". Cellarius published a great number of ancient authors, with learned annotations and very accurate indexes, as, for instance, the letters of Cicero and of Pliny, Cornelius Nepos, Curtius, Eutropius, Sextus Rufus, Velleius Paterculus, the 12 ancient panegyrists, Minucius Felix, Silius Italicus, &c. His own compositions relate to ancient history and geography, Roman antiquities, and the Latin language, as is presented here. The CURAE POSTERIORES is quite rare.

        RIPULÆ REGALIUM PRINCIPUM SABAUDORUM FIRMA ET PERAMOENA MOLITIO [.].

      AMSTERDAM, HÆREDES BLAEU, 1682 (mm 445 x 630 più marg.) - Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, superbamente colorata alla mano d'epoca, con rialzi in oro al cartiglio e allo stemma araldico. La trasposizione su lastra è opera di un anonimo incisore nordeuropeo, su disegno realizzato nel 1665-1666 da Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio ( Perinaldo 1628 ca. - Torino 1691 ). Sotto la linea marginale superiore, agli angoli sinistro e destro, rispettivamente, arma sabauda e titolo entro ricco cartiglio sostenuto da putti. La tavola topografica è tratta dalla prima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei dominii dei duchi di Savoia al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: nell'opera editoriale si affiancano relazioni scritte a splendide vedute topografiche, disegnate da artefici attivi presso la Corte torinese e tradotte su rame da incisori nordeuropei. L' immagine è una descrizione ideale del castello sabaudo di Rivoli in Piemonte, secondo ambiziosi progetti architettonici seicenteschi che non furono mai portati a termine; anche il grandioso progetto di Filippo Juvarra, elaborato e messo in opera nella prima metà del Settecento, ebbe solo parziale realizzazione.

        Pas Kaart van de Just van Carolina

      Amsterdam, 1682. No Binding. Near Fine. 20 ¼ x 23 inches. Superb hand color; lower margin extended with slight loss, else fine with strong impression on heavy paper. One of the earliest printed charts to specifically focus on the Carolina coast and one of the most attractive maps of the area overall. The chart extends from the Chesapeake Bay to northern Florida. While van Keulen used a variety of sources, not all of the identifiable, generally speaking, Spanish sources inform the more southerly areas, while in the northern part of the map, more accurate English sources predominate. There is an inset of Charlestown Harbor above the cartouche. The Van Keulen firm was a leading supplier of charts, instruments, and maritime related books of uncommon longevity. It remained a family controlled business until 1823 and then continued to operate under another owner until 1885.

        ALLADIENSE PALATIUM [.].

      AMSTELODAMI, HÆREDES IOANNIS BLAEU, 1682 (mm 470 x 573 più marg.) - Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame da un non identificato artefice nordeuropeo, su disegno di anonimo. Sotto la linea marginale superiore, al centro arma dei San Martino di Agliè sostenuta da putti alati, a destra cartiglio a foggia di drappo recante titolo, sempre retto da putti. La tavola è tratta dalla prima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei possedimenti sabaudi, siti al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: nell'opera editoriale si affiancano relazioni scritte a splendide vedute topografiche disegnate da artefici attivi presso la corte torinese. L'immagine raffigura una veduta prospettica del castello di Agliè, località del Canavese e feudo di una delle più illustri famiglie subalpine: i marchesi e conti San Martino. L'architettura della residenza ricalca, per stile e ambizione, quella delle "delitie" sabaude, e appare circondata da ampi giardini alla francese con terrazze, scalinate, parterres e specchi d'acqua. La veduta, più che riprodurre il sito come si presentava nel secondo Seicento, ha un carattere ideale, che rispecchia le ambizioni dei committenti. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, uniforme brunitura. 0

A good copy of the rare expanded edition, complete with all plates. 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'.

Översättaren Johan Silvius har använt sig av en tysk förlaga, översatt från det engelska originalet av den italienska predikanten Johannes Tonjola. Baxters originalskrift, "A call to the unconverted to turn and live" utkom 1657 och hade redan 1660 tryckts nio upplagor och översattes efter hand till de flesta europeiska språk. Översättaren skriver i sitt förord att boken är riktad "emot ahteister, werldennes hansar, leckermunnar, uthi sitt kötzlige lefwerne swijnachtige och fääwulne, uthaff syndestancken illaluchtande och uthaff högmod, ståltheet och argheet flåsande och upbläste menniskior, hwilke bekläda en medelmåttig character men werdera sig sielfwa alt för högdt". Silvius har tillägnat sin översättning riksskattmästaren Sten Bielke, kammarpresidenten Claes Fleming och ytterligare elva olika kungliga tjänste- och förtroendemän. Hellekant skriver att arbetet endast utkom en gång i Silvius översättning och inte fick någon spridning i Sverige under 1700-talet då, märkligt nog, inte en enda ny upplaga trycktes. Under 1800-talet utkom arbetet i flera editioner och olika översättningar, utan att översättare och utgivare kände till den tidigare upplagan från 1683

        Cantus, Songs and Fancies, To Three, Four, or Five Parts, Both apt for Voices and Viols

      Printed in Aberdeen: by John Forbes, and are to be sold at his printing-house,, 1682. With a brief Introduction to Musick. As is taught in the Musick-School of Aberdeen. The Third Edition, much Enlarged and Corrected. Oblong small quarto (161 × 213 mm), in 2 parts. 19th-century stiff vellum, covers with two-line gilt ruled borders, lettered on front cover, spine with double gilt bands, marbled endpapers. Title printed within woodcut borders, woodcut arms on verso, full-page woodcut, smaller cuts in text, printed music, woodcut headpiece. Armorial bookplate of George Seton Veitch. Title extended at foot, a little marginal restoration to early and last leaves not affecting text, outer leaves slightly dusty, still a good copy. Rare early edition of the first Scottish music book. The Hero as Printer comments that "this work was the first published edition containing Scottish songs and the only music book which presents the music as well as the teaching method employed in a Scottish music school of the period." Among the many songs here is the old Scots carol, "Remember, O thou man", which is frequently cited as the source of the tune used for the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen". Wing attributes the work to Thomas Davidson, as the first edition title has "T.D." [i.e. Thomas Davidson] as the instructor of the "musick-schole", but Forbes signs the introduction here twice, and claims to have compiled the whole work himself. (Ironically, his introduction is actually plagiarized from Thomas Morley, A plaine and easie introduction to practicall musicke, 1597.) There are two so-called third editions, both dated 1682, one with engraved title, the other with variant letterpress title. Wing puts this issue second of the two, following Aldis, but ESTC more recently reverses the order. Forbes added a second part to this third edition, with divisional title: "Severall of the Choisest Italian Songs composed by Giovanni Giacomo Castoldi da Carravaggio. Together also, with some of the Best new English-Ayres. Collected from their chiefest Authors, All in Three Parts, Viz. Two Trebles and a Bass." All early editions are rare, and are usually found defective.
