        Histoire generale des Insectes.

      1682. Ou l'on expose clairement la maniere lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur pretendue transformation. Utrecht, G. de Walcheren, 1682. Small-4to. pp. (8), 215, (1), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates. 18th century marbled boards. Hagen II, 209; Horn & Schenkling 21794; Nissen ZBI, 4054. First French edition; the original Dutch edition was published in 1669, entitled 'Historia Insectorum generalis'. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, pp. 168-175). Old stamp on verso of title..

        Ein Neues zur itzigen Kauf- und Handelung sehr nütz- und dienliches Buchhaltens-Werck, allen denen so Lust und haben, solche hochnützliche Wissenschafft zu lernen, durch sonderbahren Fleiss und vielfältige Mühe zu Dienst aufgesetzt

      Title within elaborate calligraphic woodcut border (title a little soiled & frayed around edges). 242 leaves (the last a blank). Small folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards (binding somewhat soiled, pigskin at one corner worn away), remains of clasps & catches. Hamburg: A. Lichtenstein, 1682. First edition, extremely rare, of this large and comprehensive Hamburg manual of accounting techniques. Only two other copies seem to be extant: one at the British Library and the other Tübingen. The book was a success and a second edition was published in 1714 under the title Der Werth-geschätzte Handels-Mann. Joachim Rademann was a chartered accountant at Hamburg. At the end of this, his first published work, he describes himself a "young man" and, according to Schröder, he married in 1683; otherwise, nothing seems to be known of his life. Based on Christoph Achatius Hager's treatise Buchhalten uber proper Commission und Compagnia Handlungen, first published at Hamburg ca. 1625, Rademann's book takes into consideration the changes and innovations that trading and coinage had seen since then, and focuses on practical matters. The general ledger section comprises a Memorial, a Journal, and a Hauptbuch; the associated accounts include a Cassa-Buch (cash journal), a Banca-Buch (bank account), an Unkostenbuch (book of charges), a Monat-Buch (monthly journal), and a Factura-Buch and Rechnungs-Copey-Buch (books of invoices). Precise examples taken from actual trading accounts at Hamburg are given throughout. "Rademann dispenses with long theoretical preambles and instead, when differentiating between debtor and creditor, points to the works of Hager and Gebhardt Overheiden. To the associated accounts, Rademann adds the Portbuch von Briefe, today's petty cash book. In the Memorial, Rademann follows his predecessor Hager, but adds a wealth of detail. The same applies to the Journal...The impersonal accounts that follow are remarkable not only for their multitude, but also for the exceptionally delicate and skillful handling of the accounts. Rademann's work is nothing short of excellent."-Penndorf, Geschichte der Buchhaltung in Deutschland, p. 219 (in trans.). Very good copy of this extremely rare book.

        Citricultura oft Regeringhe der Uythemsche Boomen, te weten Oranien, Citroenen, Limoenen, Granaten, Laurieren en andere. Waer in beschreven is de gedaente en de kennisse der Boomen, met hunne bloemen, bladeren en vruchtenn

      Antwerp: Joseph Jacobs, 1682. Contemporary calf. Very Good. 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) &

      London: Printed for S. Mearne, T. Dring, B. Tooke, T. Sawbridge, and C. Mearne. 1682-1683. First Edition. Hardcover. pp. [8] lxiv, lxxvii-lxxix [i], 384, 485-510, 411-572, 615-817 [17] & [viii] xii, 576, 571, 576-920 [22]. Text collated and complete despite erratic pagination which matches that given by the ESTC. Bound in contemporary calf rebacked preserving original spine labels bearing gilt titles, spine with five raised bands & gilt decoration, corners repaired, allegorical frontis to each vol. with frontis of vol.2 trimmed tight on foredge margin with very slight loss to image at lower corner, leaf Ttt3 of vol.1 with small hole in foredge margin not affecting text and leaf Bbbb2 of same vol with small hole just catching a couple of letters, text clean and bright throughout, vol.2 with full page engraved portrait of "Thomas Earle of Strafforde". A very good set. ESTC R6970 & R229450. Wing N106 & 107 , John Nalson (1638-1686) was an English clergyman, historian and early Tory pamphleteer. He was a product of his age, exemplifying the connections between religion and politics that were common at the time and his writings were, in his own words, those of a "true Church of England King's Protestant." He wrote a large number of polemical pamphlets in which he attacked Roman Catholics and nonconformists and engaged with the major political issues of the day. His thinking was shaped by the horrors of the recent Civil Wars and the fear that political crises of the 1670's would push England back into another such war. In 1683, in the aftermath of the Exclusion Crisis, Nalson published "A True Copy of the Journal of the High Court of Justice for the Tryal of King Charles I" which he dedicated to the Catholic heir to the throne, James, Duke of York. In the work offered here, considered to be his major work, Nalson was attempting a more complete history of the Civil Wars. Like his other works it is hardly unbiased history but it does gather together a large number of original documents in support of Nalson's position. The documents come from the office of the Clerk of the Parliament, as well as papers from the State Paper office and papers that belonged to the Duke of Ormonde. The two volumes here cover the period from 1639 to January 1642 and Nalson had intended to publish further volumes but died before he could do so. , Folio .

        Citricultura oft Regeringhe der Uythemsche Boomen, te weten Oranien, Citroenen, Limoenen, Granaten, Laurieren en andere. Waer in beschreven is de gedaente en de kennisse der Boomen, met hunne bloemen, bladeren en vruchtenn

      Joseph Jacobs Antwerp: Joseph Jacobs, 1682. Contemporary calf. Very Good. 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)

        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.

      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. L'edificio è visibile non solo nella tavola in esame, ma anche in un altro foglio del Theatrum che raffigura la città di Rivoli. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo. 0
