         L'ALCORAN DE MAHOMET. Traduit d'Arabe en Français, par le sieur Du Ryer, sieur de la Garde Malezair.

      La Haye, chez Adrian Moetjens, 1683 - 1 volume in-12 (131 x 80 mm. Hauteur des marges : 127 mm. Frontispice gravé à l'eau-forte par J. Padebrugge . 1 feuillet de titre et 8 pages non chiffrées (avis au lecteur) et 486-(4) pages. Complet. Reliure du milieu du XVIIIe siècle plein veau fauve marbré, tranches rouges, dos richement orné aux petits fers dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, doublures et gardes de papier peigne. Exemplaire très frais, reliure et intérieur. Petite fente en tête des mors du plat supérieur, sans conséquence. Superbe impression en très petits caractères, sur beau papier. Nouvelle édition. Cette édition reprend le texte de la seconde édition Elzévirienne. Bien qu'elle ne soit pas donnée par les Elzévier, cette édition de 1683 est superbement imprimée en André Du Ryer publie la première traduction intégrale du Coran en français au format in-4 en 1647 (hormis une édition latine donnée au XVIe siècle, elle-même reprise d’une traduction du XIIe siècle très imparfaite). C'est non seulement la première traduction intégrale française mais la première traduction dans une langue européenne. Le volume est aussitôt interdit par le conseil de conscience sous la pression de Vincent de Paul. Malgré tout, l'Alcoran de Mahomet connaît un succès considérable et il est réédité de très nombreuses fois au court du XVIIe siècle. Sa traduction est une première avancée dans le connaissance de l'Islam en Europe. Du Ryer était interprète du roi Louis XIII pour les langues orientales. Il fut envoyé auprès du Sultan Murad IV (1632) à Constantinople et chargé des négociations commerciales entre l'empire Ottoman et la France. La date de sa mort est incertaine (1660 ou 1672 selon les sources). Inutile de rappeler l'intérêt historique et spirituel de ce livre religieux qui est plus que jamais d'une furieuse actualité en ce début de XXIe siècle. Très bel exemplaire d'un livre emblématique.

         Autograph letter fragment.

      [Probably Delft, ca 1683?]. - Ca. 184 x 58 mm, mounted on backing paper with note by a later collector (ca. 222 x 138 mm). The beginning of an unpublished letter to an unidentified recipient. It often happens to him, writes van Leeuwenhoek, that he finds himself working on matters the full import of which he does not grasp, and so he would be glad to learn the opinions of Mr. Tevenot (i.e., the French scholar Melchisédech Thévenot, 1620-92): "Myn Heer. Gelijk ik veeltijts verschijde saaken bij de Hant neem omme die haer wesen te ontdecken, daer ik niet kan door komen, soo sal het mij niet onaengenaem sijn, dat de Heer Tevenot mij eenige voorstellen dede waar sijn speculatien mogten komen te vallen, omme alsdan daer op te antwoorden". - In 1683 van Leeuwenhoek wrote to Heinsius: "I have heard Mr. H. van Bleyswyk's high praise of Mons. Thevenot, and I am anxious to hear what that learned and curious gentleman will say about my statements" (Leeuwenhoek, Alle de brieven IV, no. 78). In 1688 he wrote to Thévenot directly: "A few years ago I took the liberty to send you a few of my modest ideas and observations, to which Your Honour replied in courteous terms. Now it so happens that, among several observations, I have discovered the circulation of the blood [.]" (ibid., vol. VIII, no. 111). The present fragment would seem to belong to the context of the former letter. - Identified by a slightly later hand on the leaf itself ("Dit is van Leeuwenhoek"); the backing paper has a note by a German 19th century collector. - The Delft entrepreneur van Leeuwenhoek is one of the most notable representatives of the golden age of Dutch science and technology. A draper by trade and a largely self-taught amateur scientist, he pioneered the field of microscopy and is hailed as the "Father of Microbiology". His instruments, built by a secret and carefully guarded method, achieved magnification of up to 275 times and more - a resolution not reproduced until more than two centuries after his death. "[O]ne can say with truth that [.] protozoology, bacteriology and microbiology begin with Leeuwenhoek" (PMM 166). Autographs by Leeuwenhoek are of the utmost rarity; not a single specimen has been traced in trade records.

      Dordrecht, Hendrick and Jacob Keur 1683 - (engraved titlepage) n.p. Contemporary Tortoiseshell binding with 2 silver clasps, 4 silver hinges and gilt-edged text block, 8° (One small piece chipped off the binding, the metal spine is not contemporary. Dutch church book containing the States Translation of the New Testament, the Psalms -with musical notation- of Petrus Dathenus and the Forms. This edition is uncommon, remarkable is that the quires are alternately counted in eights and tens. Attractive binding bound in black with ochre coloured flamed tortoiseshell with silver double clasp and 4 hinges. The clasps have straight catches but both the hasps and joints on the spine have an identically cut out pattern. The use of tortoiseshell as a book binding material became populair in the 17th and 18th century and was mostly used for binding religious texts, small Bibles, prayer books, and gift books for the wealthy middle class. The material came from exotic marine turtles and was valued due to its beauty, shine and rarity. -the name tortoiseshell can therefore be misleading because the material has nothing to do with land tortoises-. Fewer than 4 percent of the luxury bindings made in the Netherlands in the 18th century was covered in materials other than leather and vellum. These bindings were regarded as richer and were more expensive. This is considered even more for tortoise shells since the shells were not imported in large amounts, due to this the material remained expensive and only available for the rich.)(gegraveerde titelpagina) z.p. Originele Schildpadband met 2 zilveren sloten, 4 zilveren schanierstukken en goud op snede, 12° (Een enkel klein stukje van de band gesprongen, de rug van metaal is van latere datum. Nederlands Kerkboek, bestaande uit Nieuwe Testament in de Statenvertaling, de Psalmen -met noten- van Petrus Dathenus en de Formulieren. Deze uitgave komt weinig voor, opmerkelijk is dat de collatie van de katernen beurtelings in 8 en 10 wordt geteld. Aantrekkelijke band gebonden in zwart met okerkleurig gevlamd schildpad schild met een dubbele zilveren sluiting en 4 schanierstukken. De sloten hebben strakke klamparmen terwijl de muiters, aanzetstukken en schanieren op de rug zijn opengewerkt in een uniform patroon. Het gebruik van het schild van de schildpad als bindmateriaal werd populair in de 17e en 18e eeuw en werd voornamelijk gebruikt voor het binden van religieuze geschriften, kleine Bijbels, gebedenboeken en geschenkboeken voor de gegoede burgerij. Het materiaal werd verkregen van uitheemse zeeschildpadden en was geliefd vanwege het uiterlijk, de glans, en de zeldzaamheid. Minder dan 4 procent van de luxere banden die in Nederland werden gebonden in de 18e eeuw werd in ander materiaal dan leer en perkament gebonden. Deze banden werden gezien als luxer en waren duurder. Dit geldt temeer voor schildpad aangezien de schilden niet op grote schaal werden geïmporteerd, hierdoor bleef het materiaal kostbaar en alleen toegankelijk voor de rijken.)Dijstelberge, P. (2011).

         Paskaart van de Middelandsche Zee in twee deelen vertoont.

      1683 - Amsterdam: Johannes de Ram & Jacobus Robijn, c.1683. Old colour. 515 x 590mm. Minor reinforcing at centre fold. An extremely rare edition of Doncker's chart of the Mediterranean in two sections, first published 1660. It has been updated with more ornate cartouches for title and scale, the latter depicting a ram with a star on its forehead, a pun on the publisher's name which works in English as well as Dutch. Johannes de Ram (1648-93), formerly a timber merchant, set himself up as a map publisher by buying old printing plates. This chart was published in association with Jacobus Robijn (1649-c.1710), although there is no mention of this partnership in Koeman's 'Atlantes Neerlandici'.

First edition. - 1682 1ed History of English Scottish Civil War Robert Bruce Nalson Collection 2v A rare, valuable, and desirable first edition of Nalson and White’s “Impartial Collection of the Great Affairs” – a monumental account of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and the English Civil War. According to Lowndes, “In the historical part, Nalson is as partial in this narrative on the side of the King, as Rushworth is on the side of the Parliament; and they are both to be consulted with great allowance for their party. ‘Nalson is worth turning over, being full of vastly curious and valuable authentic pieces’.” This folio-printed book deals with details of Scotland, including that of the Scottish War for Independence and the right of Robert the Bruce. Nalson discusses the issues involving English Liturgy read in the King’s Chapels and the English Cathedrals and the banished bishops from Queen Mary’s reign. This ‘collection’ is a large body of letters written about the current state of the relationships between England and Scotland during the 1630s and 40s.

         ARBITRARY GOVERNMENT DISPLAYD TO THE LIFE, IN THE TYRANNICK USURPATION OF A JUNTO OF MEN CALLED THE RUMP PARLIAMENT. And more especially in that of the tyrant and usurper Oliver Cromwell.

      London, William Cademan, 1683. In which you have a clear view of the arbitrary, illegal, and unjust proceedings of those persons under the notion of liberty. And a compendious history of those times, faithfully collected; with the characters and lives of several of those usurpers, and a brief account of the several persons that suffered death and imprisonment under them, for their loyalty to the King and country. And by which may be seen the difference between arbitrary usurpers and lawful kings, reigning by, and according to the laws of the land. Illustrated with several brass cutts, representing the chief persons and passages therein. SECOND EDITION 1683, 12mo, approximately 150 x 85 mm, 5¾ x 3¼ inches, 4 engraved plates as required, 2 with 4 images each, pages: 92, 93-96 numbered as leaves, 97-156, 169-216, irregularities in pagination found in all copies, collated and guaranteed complete, bound in full old calf with blind rules and corner ornaments to covers, expertly rebacked with original blind decorated backstrip laid on, gilt lettered label, endpapers renewed at some time. Corners slightly worn, tiny scrape to lower cover, ink name on front endpaper and reverse of frontispiece, tipped onto reverse of frontispiece is an engraving of Cromwell from another book, frontispiece and plates faintly foxed, tiny rust hole in 1 page with loss of 2 letters, easily legible, light browning to some pages, occasional small light stain, small ink stain to 1 page, all still legible, from page 169 to the end many pages are cropped at the fore-edge, in some places shaving or losing the letter at the end or beginning of the line, almost all is easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good copy of an anti Cromwell item. Our researches have uncovered nothing about the author who is not to be confused with the poet Thomas May who died in 1650. Most cataloguers give his dates as circa 1645-1718 and refer to him as Sir Thomas May, M. P. The date of the first edition is unknown as no copy is listed in the major libraries nor in ESTC. On the front pastedown is the small "JE" label which indicates that the book was sold in Christie's sale of the library of the Evelyn family and may have belonged to John Evelyn himself. It can be identified by the cropped fore-edges which are described in Christie's Catalogue of the Evelyn sale (Part III, No. 1005). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

         ARBITRARY GOVERNMENT DISPLAYD TO THE LIFE, IN THE TYRANNICK USURPATION OF A JUNTO OF MEN CALLED THE RUMP PARLIAMENT. And more especially in that of the tyrant and usurper Oliver Cromwell.

      London, William Cademan, 1683.. In which you have a clear view of the arbitrary, illegal, and unjust proceedings of those persons under the notion of liberty. And a compendious history of those times, faithfully collected; with the characters and lives of several of those usurpers, and a brief account of the several persons that suffered death and imprisonment under them, for their loyalty to the King and country. And by which may be seen the difference between arbitrary usurpers and lawful kings, reigning by, and according to the laws of the land. Illustrated with several brass cutts, representing the chief persons and passages therein. SECOND EDITION 1683, 12mo, approximately 150 x 85 mm, 5¾ x 3¼ inches, 4 engraved plates as required, 2 with 4 images each, pages: 92, 93-96 numbered as leaves, 97-156, 169-216, irregularities in pagination found in all copies, collated and guaranteed complete, bound in full old calf with blind rules and corner ornaments to covers, expertly rebacked with original blind decorated backstrip laid on, gilt lettered label, endpapers renewed at some time. Corners slightly worn, tiny scrape to lower cover, ink name on front endpaper and reverse of frontispiece, tipped onto reverse of frontispiece is an engraving of Cromwell from another book, frontispiece and plates faintly foxed, tiny rust hole in 1 page with loss of 2 letters, easily legible, light browning to some pages, occasional small light stain, small ink stain to 1 page, all still legible, from page 169 to the end many pages are cropped at the fore-edge, in some places shaving or losing the letter at the end or beginning of the line, almost all is easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good copy of an anti Cromwell item. Our researches have uncovered nothing about the author who is not to be confused with the poet Thomas May who died in 1650. Most cataloguers give his dates as circa 1645-1718 and refer to him as Sir Thomas May, M. P. The date of the first edition is unknown as no copy is listed in the major libraries nor in ESTC. On the front pastedown is the small "JE" label which indicates that the book was sold in Christie's sale of the library of the Evelyn family and may have belonged to John Evelyn himself. It can be identified by the cropped fore-edges which are described in Christie's Catalogue of the Evelyn sale (Part III, No. 1005). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

[Rule] Sed tamen est tristissima janua nostræ, Et est unus tempora a prima pati. [Rule] London, Printed for Tho. Passinger, at the Three Bibles on London-Bridge, 1683. Sm.4to, not watermarked; half-title not called for; leaf headed'The Translator's Epistle to the Gentle Reader' [not signed], follows title leaf; pp.[iv]+124+123 - 242; A - I, K - U, X - Hh4. BOUND WITH: [SHIRLEY or SHURLEY (John)]. [Within a typographical border:] The Honour of Chivalry: The Second and Third Part: Being a continuation Of the First Part of the History Of the Renowned Prince Don Bellianis Of Greece. Containing his many strange and won- Derful Adventures; as Fights with Monsters and Gy- Ants, Dissolving Inchantments, Rescuing Distressed Ladies, overthrowing Tyrants, and obtaining the fair Princess Florisbella in Marriage. Together, with the rare Adventures of Many other Heroick Emperours, Kings, Princes, and Knights, with their Amorous Intrigues and fortunate Success in their Undertakings. [Rule] Being worthy the perusal of all Persons, as well for its pleasant- Ness as the profit that they may accrue thereby. [Rule] Written by J.S. Gent. [Rule] London, Printed for T. Passinger, at the Sign of the Three Bibles, on London-Bridge. 1683. Apparently Imp.16mo in quarter sheets (i.e., gathered in fours), the watermark being a large crown and the chain-lines running horizontally; half-title not called for; leaf headed To the Reader and signed at end 'J. Shurley' follows title leaf; large historiated initials throughout; pp.[4]+167+[i (blank)]; A2, B - I, K - U, X - Y4. Two volumes bound in one, both printed in black letter and Roman type; nineteenth century full Russia bound after a seventeenth century model, the sides with gilt panel surrounded by broad leaf-and-flower rolls, the spine with four bands and five panels, ruled and tooled elaborately gilt and lettered direct in the second panel; decorative gilt rolls to edges of boards and turn-ins; a.e.g.; end-papers faced light brown. Later re-back, preserving the old backstrip; small puncture to leather (only) in centre of front board; in the the first part: some of the (mostly early) leaves cropped rather close at some lower edges with loss of about twenty catchwords and all or part of the last line of text on leaves A4, C4v, F1, F4r, H1, H2, and H4; paper flaws to blank fore-margin of U1, and blank lower margin of 2C4; small chip to blank lower margin of Z3; neat repair to lower margin of 2G1 with loss of two or three words on the recto; pen trials on blank margins of 2B2v and 2B3r; in the second part: strip lacking from blank lower margins of G3 and G4, due to an original paper fault; insignificant marking to a few scattered leaves in both volumes; otherwise nice. Two volumes evidently printed and issued separately, but in the same year, and usually found together. The First Part, translated from the Italian version of Oration Rinaldi, published in 1598, contains like its model only the first fifty of the sixty-eight chapters of the original Spanish romance, Historia del magnanimo, et invincibil principe Belianis de Grecia, by Jer¢nimo Fern ndez, published in Spain in 1545. It was not, and does not claim to have been, translated into English by Shirley, but is a reprint of the 1650 version translated by Francis Kirkman and reprinted several times up until 1673. Kirkman had added a Second and a Third Part, both written by himself, in 1664 and 1672, and the present Second and Third Parts consist of a paraphrase of them by Shirley, who writes in his remarks 'To the Reader' at the start of Part Two that the romance is "now illustrated and put into the newest dialect" by himself. He also added some rather bad verse. These Parts provide "the unique instance pf an English continuation of one of the Spanish romances" (Henry Thomas, Spanish and Portuguese Romances of Chivalry', CUP, 1920, pp.257-8.), and are set partly in England and Ireland. In this copy, possibly as always, p.38 of Part One has been misnumbered '93', and p.39 '38'; p.69 ends 'hap=' whilst p.70 begins 'happiness'; and gathering 2C has been laid-out wrongly in the forme, pp.200 and 201 following p.195, and pp.196 and 197, preceding p.202 (which is mis-numbered '102)', whilst the signature mark 'Cc2' appears correctly at the foot of p.197 but as the last leaf of the gathering and backed, of course, by the incorrectly numbered p.'101'. The front pastedown bears the engraved armorial bookplate of Henry Francis Lyte, writer of the hymns 'Abide with Me' and 'Praise my Soul the King of Heaven', and sometime tutor to Lord Salisbury. The verso of the second binder's blank bears the 1883 rubber ownership stamp of Alexander Gardyne. The first printing of the version by Shirley (not reprinted until 1703) and very scarce. COPAC records only the Oxford, National Library of Scotland, Leeds, and Lambeth Palace copies.

Full title: "The Protestant resolution of faith: being an answer to three questions: I. How far we must depend on the authority of the church for the true sense of Scripture? II. Whether a visible succession from Christ to this day makes a church, which has this succession an infallible interpreter of Scripture, and whether no church, which has not this succession, can teach the true sense of Scripture? III. Whether the Church of England can make out such a visible succession? . " ‘The protestant resolution of faith’ (1683) , maintained that since the age of the apostles the church has had no infallible guide but the scriptures. William Sherlock (c. 1641 – June 1707) was a Church of England clergyman and religious controversialist. Sherlock was a leader among the brilliant group of London divines including Thomas Tenison, William Clagett, and Simon Patrick who carried on the literary defense of the Church of England against Catholicism from late in the reign of Charles II into that of James II. Sherlock's 'Protestant Resolution of Faith', first published in 1683, was republished in 1685, 1686, and 1687, at the height of the struggle under James. Subjects: Faith - Early works to 1800.

         De cymbalis veterum, libri tres, in quibus quaecunque ad eorum nomina, differentiam, originem, historiam, ministros, ritus pertinent, elucidantur.Utrecht, Willem van Poolsum, 1703. 12mo. With an ornamental woodcut vignette on title, an engraved title-page by H. de Blois after Gerard Hoet (1648-1733) and 10 engraved plates. Contemporary vellum.

      - Kat. Musik Bibl. Paul Hirsch I, 300; Cat. Muziekhist. Museum Scheurleer I, p. 328. Second edition, and first and only edition printed in the Netherlands, of a treatise on the history of cymbals in classical antiquity. With meticulous precision, the author traces the etymology and history of cymbals, one of the oldest instruments in history. In the first of the three parts of the book, Lampe treats the name and origin of cymbals. The second part is devoted to the shapes of cymbals and the materials used. The third part investigates the use of the instrument in (religious) rites and plays. Several plates of antiques statues, objects and instruments illustrate the narrative.Friedrich Adolph Lampe (1683-1728) was a minister and professor at the University of Utrecht. De cymbalis, written when he was merely 17 and published in Bremen, forms an exception in his oeuvre, as all his writings concern theology and church history. His magnum opus, a history of the reformation in Hungary and Transylvania, was published in 1728.With several shelf marks pasted and written on the spine, a written shelf mark on the pastedown, an 18th-century(?) library inscription on the first endpaper and a library stamp on back of the title-page. Binding soiled but otherwise a very good copy.

A Otto van Veen (1556 - 1629) also known by his Latinized name as Octavio Vaenius, was from the Netherlands. He studied with various European artists before settling in Brussels, where he was court painter to Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma until 1592. He continued to work for various members of the European aristocracy, and his later work turned to scenes of battles and later books of emblems. He produced the painting for these engravings and the work was published in 1607. In this 1683 edition the engravings are attributed by Nagler and Bryan to Gijsbert van Veen (1558 - 1630), Otto's brother. [viii], 250 [206 - 207 index, 208 blank] pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
