THEATRUM SABAUDIÆ
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.

THEATRUM SABAUDIÆ
AMSTELODAMI, HÆREDES IOANNIS BLAEU, 1682 (mm 432 x 1035 ca. più marg.)Incisione originale su matrice di rame, eseguita all'acquaforte da anonimo artefice dei Paesi Bassi su disegno tracciato nel 1662 da Francesco Toscano. Sotto la linea d'inquadramento superiore, al centro titolo entro cartiglio, nonché, rispettivamente a sinistra e a destra, arma ducale sabauda e arma di "Madama Reale" Cristina di Francia; sotto la parte figurata, richiami in italiano disposti su più colonne, con al centro dati di tipografia entro cartiglio, e con a destra indicazione del disegnatore. La tavola è tratta dalla prima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei dominii dei duchi 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 e tradotte su rame da incisori nordeuropei. La raffigurazione in esame, tra le più grandiose della pubblicazione, è una vasta veduta topografica di Mondovì; la città piemontese appare chiaramente divisa nella parte alta e nella parte bassa. Come nota la studiosa Roccia, l'immagine è l'unica opera oggi conosciuta del pittore monregalese Francesco Toscano. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; margini buoni a sinistra e a destra; margine sottile in alto e ampio in basso.

THEATRUM SABAUDIÆ
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 [Attributes: First Edition]

Contemporary calf rebacked with five raised bands on spine, spine label bearing gilt titles, joints starting from upper edges, corners worn and some wear to edges of boards, bookplates of Alexander Finlay and D. G. Mackenzie to front pastedown, some browning throughout as usual, some soiling to leaves F & F2 but text remains legible, p.305 with split in centre of page with no loss of text, pagination and register erratic. , Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke (6 August 1605 – 28 July 1675) was an English lawyer, writer and parliamentarian. During the English Civil war he took the parliament's side but he acted with moderation throughout, taking no part in the trial of King Charles I or in the disputes between parliament and the army. His account of the civil war and the events surrounding it was published postumously by Arthur Annesley, Earl of Anglesey, "who took considerable liberties with the ms." (Lowndes, Bibliographer’s manual). Despite that, alongside Clarendon's history, it remains one of the most important contemporary accounts of the civil war period. , Folio 13" - 23" tall .

For in the days of our Fathers, while the Divine right was generally maintained and believed, it was thought a matter of Conscience to pay Tithes justly.

VAIRASSE D'ALAIS, Denis
Amsterdam,: T. van Hoorn, 1682.. Small quarto, four parts in one volume (part 4 with separate pagination), engraved frontispiece by J. Luiken (dated 1683) and 16 plates (repairs to tears in two plates, one with insubstantial loss at bottom corner); a few upper margins a little short but a very good copy in full vellum antique. Very rare, the first fully illustrated edition of this seventeenth-century imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656. The plates are thus early - if imaginary - depictions of the Australian coast, and include two coastal scenes depicting the first meeting with the local population, the Australian court, and the fabulous fauna.The importance of the detailed and inventive illustrations has been overlooked: after the various editions of Pelsaert, this is the second major work to depict life and conditions on the Australian mainland, however fancifully. This work also has an important connection with Vlamingh's exceedingly rare Journaal wegens de Voyagie of 1701, as Vlamingh's very real voyage to Australia in 1696-7 only made it separately into print as a companion volume to the second Dutch edition of this imaginary work (see catalogue no. XXXX).The story is based on the 1656 wreck of the Vergulde Draeck, which ran aground on the coast north of modern-day Perth. Seventy-five of the crew and passengers made it ashore. The captain Pieter Albertsz despatched a crew of seven in a small boat to Batavia and a rescue expedition was mounted, but found no trace of the survivors; the possibility … [Click Below for Full Description]

"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.

TUKE, Richard
London, printed for John Hancock & Enoch Prosser 1682.. Sm. 8vo, small engraved portrait by Van Hove (cut round & mounted), [8], 150 pp., advt leaf, early marginalia in brown ink, slightly browned & foxed, later morocco. Wing T3227. Only edition, scarce. The body of a wool merchant, Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey (1621-1678), was found in a ditch on Primrose Hill in 1678. He was certainly murdered, and the murder was probably in some way connected with his having taken the deposition of Titus Oates on the alleged Popish plot, but the mystery has never been cleared up. Primrose Hill was then known as Greenberry Hill; and one of the oddities of the case is that the three men charged with his murder were called Green, Berry and Hill (round up the usual suspects?). This is the most important contemporary source; it concludes with two poems. This copy is annotated in a contemporary hand on the title and elsewhere by someone very interested - perhaps in some way involved? - in the case. ESTC calls for a portrait, but I am not certain that the one here is not a replacement. vf21

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. Das traf Leone Modena schwer, er unterzog sein bisheriges Leben einer strengen Selbstprüfung, deren Frucht die äußerst widersprüchliche Autobiographie chajje Jehuda ist, eine offen-ehrliche Abrechnung, in der er sich als gescheiterte Existenz bekennt und mit der er in seiner Zeit einzigartig dasteht.

BLAEU, IOANNES.
Amsterdam, 1682 circa. Dal "Theatrum Sabaudiae", incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 48,5 x 64,2 (alla lastra) pi? margini. Intorno alla met? 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 cos?, 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. 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 citt? capitale con le sue piazze, i suoi pi? 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 citt? 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, perch? straordinarie. L'opera riproduceva grosso modo lo schema di precedenti imprese editoriali realizzate dai Blaeu (? chiaro il riferimento al "Teatro delle citt? principali delle Fiandre.."). Foglio leggermente e uniformemente brunito, peraltro esemplare in bella impression … [Click Below for Full Description]

MASON, William, fl. 1672-1709
London, printed for the author 1682.. engr. throughout (signed 'Ben: Rhodes sculpsit' on title), 24 leaves (all numbered except for f.l: portrait) printed on one side & arranged as 12 openings, very nice copy in orig. sheep ('Price bound 1s. 6d.' on title), some abrasion but joints perfect. Wi ng M941A; Alston VIII, 146. First edition, first state (?) of Mason's second shorthand book. The two states differ in the imprint, which here reads: "Neare the Royal Exchange. Where the books are to be had, & such as desire to learn. may (by him) be expediciously taught, at very reasonable rates; the booke is also sold by these book-sellers. Mr. Benj. Alsop at the Angel & Bible in the Poultry. Mr. Wilkins at ye Starr in Cheap side. Mr. Ben: Harris under ye Royall Exch: Mr. Thom Fox in Westminster Hall: and severall others". The second (?) state substitutes Jacob Sampson for Benjamin Harris.Such a change is common enough with moveable type, where it is easy, but here the title has been completely re-engraved. This needs good cause and I suggest that it was Benjamin Harris rather than Jacob Sampson who had to drop out of the enterprise: he was constantly in trouble with the authorities and at this time was in deep, fined the huge sum of £500 and put in the pillory for publishing his Protestant Petition, April 30, 1681. He continued his business in England ("an uneasie place for honest men", said his friend John Dunton) until his difficulties led him to move to Boston in 1686 - where he both became the first American journalist and published the New England Primer.

Rose, Giles
London: Printed for R. Bentley and M. Magnes, 1682. Duodecimo,Title leaf, [22], 563 pages [lacking pages 481-504]. With 41 pages of woodcuts of which a few illustrate table settings and the majority illustrate the carving of various fowl (capon, turkey, goose, duck, pigeon, woodcock, partridge, pheasant, etc.), veal, mutton, wild boar, pig, hare, fish, and lobster and the decorative carving of fruit. First and only English edition of one of the most important titles of 17th Century French gastronomy, and one of the rarest cookery books in the English language. There are few recorded copies and most all existing copies appear to be imperfect, i.e. primarily lacking pages. Bitting notes, "Despite the claim 'The like never before extant in any language,' the book is a translation of 'L'Escole parfaite des officiers de bouches,' first published in 1662. The English translation is much scarcer than the original." In six books, (here translated): "Steward of the Family", "The Great Master Carver", "The Royal Butler", "The Royal Confectioner", "The Royal French Master Cook", and "The Royal Pastry Man". Verso of title page with margins strengthened and old repairs to pages 5-6 and 11-12 in the lower margin and pages 9-10 in the lower quarter with some little loss of text. Rebacked in full brown calf with spine label, with original boards. A good or better copy. [OCLC indicates eight copies only; Bitting p. 407; Cagle 970; Wing R1933. ].

Celui-ci est relié avec la relation (en complément) de Thomas Le Gendre, « Lettre écrite en réponse » (Turbet-Delof, 218).

Mark Catesby (1682-1749)Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama IslandsLondon: 1731 - 1743; [1731-1771, 3rd edition]Hand-colored copper-plate engraving20" x 14"; 24" x 20 1/2" framedIn 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done.

Restauration à la coiffe supérieure. NOUVELLE EDITION de ce commentaire des livres I à VI, XI et XII du traité géométrique d'Euclide. Nombreuses figures dans le texte. Les "Eléments de géométrie" d'Euclide ont joué pendant plus de deux mille ans un rôle de toute PREMIERE IMPORTANCE ; l'étude de sa tradition est jusqu'au XVIIIe un ASPECT ESSENTIEL de l'histoire de la géométrie. Rappelons que ces "Eléments" se composent de 13 livres dont les 6 premiers sont consacrés à la géométrie plane. Les livres 7, 8 et 9 traitent des propriétés des nombres rationnels et le livre 10 des irrationnels. Les 11e, 12e et 13e livres développent la mesure des volumes : parallélépipèdes, prismes et pyramides, ainsi que les rapports des volumes du cône, du cylindre et de la sphère. On y trouve aussi la construction des cinq polyèdres réguliers. La première édition, latine, de l'édition de Dechalles, date de 1660 ; la première traduction française a été imprimée en 1676. Claude François Milliet DECHALLES (1621-1678), entra dans la compagnie de Jésus dès l'âge de 14 ans, et développa un goût irrésistible vers l'étude des mathématiques lors d'un voyage en Turquie. Ses ouvrages sont réputés pour leur clarté.
