He became a Royalist, putting his Covenanter past behind him and in 1648 fought for the King and later served Charles II when in 1651 at Worcester he was captured. He was knighted after the Restoration but after a shameful incident in Scotland in 1668 he was deprived of his commission. In retirement he devoted himself to his writing. (ODNB).

Un manque en tête au mors supérieur. Coiffe de queue en partie arrachée. Malgré de petis défauts, bel exemplaire. Elevée au sein d'une cour d'Espagne stricte et catholique, Marie - Thérèse demeura très pieuse et plutôt effacée devant la vie de la cour. En tant qu'épouse du roi, refusant la vie mondaine et le luxe, elle devint vite un modèle pour l'église. Sa mort relativement précoce précipita les hommages et justement, les oraisons.

        Li Giardini di Roma...con Priv. del'S. Pont l'anno 1683

      1683. """Li Giardini di Roma con le loro piante alzate e vedute in prospettiva disegnate ed intagliate da Gio. Battista Falda. Nuovamente dati alle stampe, con direttione, e cura di Gio: Giacomo de Rossi, alla Pace, all'Insegna di Parigi in Roma con Priv. del'S. Pont l'anno 1683"" In - folio oblungo, frontespizio, antiporta incisa da Arnold Van Westerhout da disegno di G.B. Manelli e 19 tavole, di cui 14 incise in rame da Giovan Battista Falda e 5 da Simone Felice. Legatura moderna in mezza pelle, titolo in oro al dorso. Splendido esemplare della seconda edizione dell'opera, datata 1683, con le tavole nel primo stato di due prima della numerazione dei fogli. Magnifiche prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva, con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L'espressione "nuovamente dati alle stampe" indicherebbe l'esistenza di una prima edizione dell'opera, che è sicuramente successiva al 1677 perché non compare nell'Indice di De Rossi di quell'anno. Tenuto conto che Falda muore a Roma nell'agosto del 1678, senza dubbio l'opera fu pubblicata postuma. Questa seconda edizione datata 1683 è sconosciuta al Bellini che anzi ritiene da scartare la datazione - proposta da Brunet - al 1683 perché in quella data A. van Westerhout era appena sedicenne e quindi sarebbe stato troppo giovane per incidere la meravigliosa antiporta. Stabilisce però un sicuro terminus ante quem, il 1689, ovvero l'anno di morte di Innocenzo XI a cui l'opera è dedicata. Dimensioni varie, in folio oblungo, margini esterni 465x365." Title: Li Giardini di Roma con le loro piante alzate e vedute in prospettiva disegnate ed intagliate da Gio. Battista Falda. Nuovamente dati alle stampe, con direttione, e cura di Gio: Giacomo de Rossi, alla Pace, all'Insegna di Parigi in Roma con Priv. del'S. Pont l'anno 1683. Gardens of Rome with their plants raised and views in perspective drawn and engraved by Giovanni Battista Falda . Oblong folio , title page, frontispiece engraved by Arnold van Westerhout after a drawing by G.B. Manelli and 19 plates, 14 of which are engraved in copper by Giovan Battista Falda and 5 by Simone Felice. Modern half leather binding, gold title to spine. A wonderful example of the second edition of the work, dated 1683, with the plates in the first state of two before the numbering of the sheets. Magnificent impressions, printed on contemporary laid paper, with wide margins, in excellent conditions. . The term "nuovamente dati alle stampe" would indicate the existence of a first edition of the work, which is definitely next to 1677 because it does not appear in the Index of the publisher De Rossi of that year. As Giovan Battista Falda died in Rome in August of 1677, there are no doubt that the work was published posthumously. This second edition dated 1683 is unknown to Bellini, that believes unwrapped dating - proposed by Brunet - 1683 because on that date A. van Westerhout was just sixteen, and then it would have been too young to engrave the wonderful allegoric title page. A magnific set of the roman gardens of Falda. Bartsch 1, 2 e 56 - 70; TIB 056 - 076 I/II; Brunet, volume 2, p. 1171; Bellini 213 - 227; Nagler, vol. 4, p. 447.

        Paradossi per praticare la Prospetiva senza saperla, fiori per facilitare l'intelligenza, frutti per non operare alla cieca. Cognitioni necessarie a pittori, scultori, ed a qualunque si diletta di disegno. Dat'in luceda Giulio Troili da Spinlamberto detto Paradosso pittore.. Bologna, Gioseffo Longhi, 1683

      Longhi G, 1683. 3 parti in un vol. in - 4, pp. (8), 120 (per le parti I - II); (4), 64 (parte III); legatura coeva in pergamena. Opera adorna di un gran numero di figure a piena pagina inc. su legno, racchiuse in bordura floreale: elementi di prospettiva, figure geometriche animate da figure umane e strumenti; numerosi culs - de - lampe e capilettera ornati; al verso del tit. una grande silografia, ripetuta a pag. 13 (la lezione di prospettiva). La parte II inizia a pag. 49; la parte III ha front. proprio. Seconda edizione delle prime due parti (infatti erano già state pubblicate l'anno precedente dagli ''heredi del Peri'') e prima edizione della terza parte. Opera rara a trovarsi completa della terza parte, una delle migliori tra le antiche opere sulla prospettiva, pregevole anche per la qualità delle incisioni «espresse con chiarezza di disegno». Interessa anche la scenografia (cfr. Leclerc: Les origines italiennes de l'architecture théatrale moderne, p. 181) e l'architettura militare. Esempl. puro e marginoso. ''Troili, a pupil of the quadratura painter Michelangelo Colonna, became scene painter for the Farnese theatre at Parma. Ferdinando Bibiena saw his work there (probably after the artist's death) and absorbed its influence. This original edition of Troili's exceptionally handsome book on perspective is one of the real milestones in the history of theatrical scenery: it describes the conscious use of visual deception, the creation of greater 'depth' by means of oblique positioning of the wings, as common practice twenty years before Pozzo'' (Breman in Architectural Theory and Practice III - B - 24). Buon esepl. (con abilli restauri nei margini del frontespizio e qualche ingiallitura qua e là).

Première édition, second état ; il y a eu plusieurs éditions simultanées, à Londres, La Haye et Leyde. Wilhelm Ten Rhijne (1647 - 1700), médecin hollandais de la Compagnie Orientale des Indes, étudia à l'Université de Leyde. A partir de 1674, il embarque pour un voyage qui le mène vers l'île de Dejima, seul comptoir commercial étranger autorisé au Japon, où il réside deux ans, jusqu'en 1676 ; il y étudie la médecine et la botanique, avant de s'installer à Java, où il demeurera jusqu'à sa mort. Le traité de Ten Rhijne apporta à l'Occident une description précise de la médecine chinoise et japonaise, de l'acupuncture et de la moxibustion. Il comprend les toutes premières représentations des points d'acuponcture jamais publiés en Europe. L'auteur décrit correctement les 14 méridiens principaux, qu'il confond cependant avec les vaisseaux sanguins ; cette erreur d'interprétation perdurera dans les études occidentales ultérieures. Ten Rhijne tente enfin de réaliser un lien entre la médecine traditionnelle occidentale, héritée de Gallien et d'Aristote, avec la méthode chinoise : il propose notamment de traduite "Yang" par "chaleur innée" et "Yin" par "humidité radicale". Manque le portrait. Norman II, n° 2062. Bowers, Western Medical Pionners in Feudal Japan, p. 32). Krivatsy, n° 9603

        L'Art de jetter les Bombes.

      Added engraved title, large engraved vignette on title, engraved headpieces, one engraved plate, & many illus. in the text (some woodcut, some engraved). 4 p.l., 445, [17] pp., one leaf of errata. Large 4to, cont. polished tree calf, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: l'Autheur & N. Langlois, 1683. First edition and a lovely copy from the Macclesfield library. During his infantry service, Blondel had been amazed at the crude methods of the French bombardiers. After having scrutinized all the publications on the subject including those of Galileo and Torricelli, Blondel developed a series of practical rules, explained in the present work. These rules were based on three solutions proposed by Buot, Roemer, and La Hire. "Blondel used the three solutions for establishing the practical rules which he formulated in his L'Art de jetter les bombes, the printing of which was delayed until 1683 by order of Louis XIV, who hardly cared to have the enemy profit by it."-D.S.B., II, p. 202. Blondel (1618-86), military engineer and architect, wrote the standard French work on architecture (1675-83) which remained the definitive reference work for French architects for more than a century. Very fine copy from the Macclesfield library with embossed stamp on title and the South Library bookplate. Engraved armorial bookplate of Lt. Gen. G.L. Parker, the fourth Earl of Macclesfield. .

        A General Treatise of Artillery: or, Great Ordnance writ in Italian by Tomaso Moretti of Brescia Ingenier first to the Emperour, and now to the most Serene Republick of Venice. Translated into English, with Notes thereupon, and some Additions out of French for Sea-Gunners. By Sir Jonas Moore, Kt. With an Appendix of Artificial Fire-works for War and Delight; by Sir Abraham Dager Kt. Ingenier.

      Woodcut frontis., seven folding woodcut plates, & one folding printed table (detached). 6 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 124 pp. 8vo, fine 18th-cent. mottled calf, flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Printed by A.G. and J.P. for Obadiah Blagrave, 1683. Second edition in English, enlarged (1st ed. in English: 1673) of Moretti's Trattato dell'Artigliera (Venice: 1665). The makeup of our edition is complicated -- just look at the bibliographical head scratching which takes place in the ESTC entry -- and there is tremendous variation in copies. Our copy lacks the two preliminary leaves with dedication to George Wharton and two final advertisement leaves (none of the three Macclesfield copies had the leaves of ads and each had a different collation). This text was translated by the son of Jonas Moore (1617-79), mathematician and patron of astronomy, who supported John Flamsteed and helped finance the foundation, construction, and equipping of the observatory at Greenwich. Jonas Moore Jr. has made a number of additions and Abraham Dager's appendix appears here for the first time. Dager sought to apply principles used in firework displays to defensive warfare. Fine copy from the Macclesfield library with the South Library bookplate and embossed stamp. ❧ Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, p. 99. .

        Emblemata amatoria. Emblemes d'amour en quatre langue.London, "Chez l'Amoureux", [ca. 1690]. 8vo. With engraved title-page, 45 engraved emblems by Jan van Vianen and 46 engraved leaves with a poem facing the emblems and title-page. Contemporary calf with gold-tooled spine and sides.

      Landwehr, Emblem and fable books, 216; Praz, pp. 127-131 & 323; De Vries, Emblemata 232 & p. 43. First edition published in the Netherlands of a wholly engraved love emblem book. It contains 45 engraved emblems, with the epigrams in four languages (Latin, Italian, French and Dutch) on the opposite page. Between 1683 and 1714 at least five editions were published at London with the emblems engraved by Philip Ayres, based on the love emblems of Heinsius, Crispyn de Passe's Thronus Cupidinis, and the Amorum Emblemata by Otto Vaenius. The plates of the present edition however, were newly engraved by the Dutch artist Jan van Vianen (ca. 1660-1726), who went to England in his youth. According to Praz, Ayres worked directly from the originals, so his plates were in reverse, while Jan van Vianen probably worked from the Ayres-plates, getting them "right" again. However, Vianen adapted them freely and showed better workmanship and a good sense of perspective which was entirely lacking in Ayres's plates.With bookplates. Only slightly browned with a few small spots and a small tear in the first two leaves. Binding rubbed along the extremities. Overall a very good copy.

Das äußerst seltene Blatt in einem durchaus sammlungswürdigen Zustand.] (Bei dem abgebildeten Mohren handelt es sich vermutlich um Angelo Soleman oder Ignatius Fortuna. Begegnungen zwischen Europäern nördlich der Alpen und Afrikanern hatten bis ins 18. Jahrhundert Seltenheitswert. Im Mittelalter und der Frühen Neuzeit sind bildliche Darstellungen von Menschen schwarzer Hautfarbe nördlich der Alpen daher eine bemerkenswerte Ausnahme, während in den italienischen Staaten wie der Republik Venedig der Kontakt zu Afrika nie abriss. Selten beruhen mitteleuropäische Darstellungen von „Mohren" auf tatsächlichen Begegnungen, weit eher auf Reisebeschreibungen und überlieferten Darstellungen. Erst beginnend mit der Kolonialzeit kommen diese „Mohren" aus Afrika und Amerika als Sklaven an die europäischen Höfe. Dort, aber auch bei reichen Bürgern, wird es bis ins 18. Jahrhundert eine Prestigesache bleiben, „Hofmohren" zu haben, gewöhnlich als Kammerdiener („Kammermohren") oder soldatisch gekleidete, eher zur Zier dienende Wachen. Viele andere kamen auch zum Militär, meist als Spielleute. - Bekannte Mohren sind beispielsweise Anton Wilhelm Amo († nach 1753), der „hochfürstliche Mohr" Angelo Soliman († 1796) und Ignatius Fortuna († 1789).)

        Paradossi per praticare la Prospetiva senza saperla,

      fiori per facilitare l'intelligenza, frutti per non operare alla cieca. Cognitioni necessarie a pittori, scultori, ed a qualunque si diletta di disegno. Dat'in luceda Giulio Troili da Spinlamberto detto Paradosso pittore. Bologna, Gioseffo Longhi, 1683, - 3 parti in un vol. in-4, pp. (8), 120 (per le parti I-II); (4), 64 (parte III); legatura coeva in pergamena. Opera adorna di un gran numero di figure a piena pagina inc. su legno, racchiuse in bordura floreale: elementi di prospettiva, figure geometriche animate da figure umane e strumenti; numerosi culs-de-lampe e capilettera ornati; al verso del tit. una grande silografia, ripetuta a pag. 13 (la lezione di prospettiva). La parte II inizia a pag. 49; la parte III ha front. proprio. Seconda edizione delle prime due parti (infatti erano già state pubblicate l'anno precedente dagli ''heredi del Peri'') e prima edizione della terza parte. Opera rara a trovarsi completa della terza parte, una delle migliori tra le antiche opere sulla prospettiva, pregevole anche per la qualità delle incisioni «espresse con chiarezza di disegno». Interessa anche la scenografia (cfr. Leclerc: Les origines italiennes de l'architecture théatrale moderne, p. 181) e l'architettura militare. Esempl. puro e marginoso. ''Troili, a pupil of the quadratura painter Michelangelo Colonna, became scene painter for the Farnese theatre at Parma. Ferdinando Bibiena saw his work there (probably after the artist's death) and absorbed its influence. This original edition of Troili's exceptionally handsome book on perspective is one of the real milestones in the history of theatrical scenery: it describes the conscious use of visual deception, the creation of greater 'depth' by means of oblique positioning of the wings, as common practice twenty years before Pozzo'' (Breman in Architectural Theory and Practice III-B-24). Buon esepl. (con abilli restauri nei margini del frontespizio e qualche ingiallitura qua e là). Fowler n. 347, note. Riccardi II, 561-2. Cicognara 866: «Si insegnano molte buone pratiche, ed è uno de' migliori libri in questo genere». Berlin Kat. 4722. J. Baltrusaitis, Anamorfosi, pp.19-23. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Discourse touching Provision for the Poor. FIRST EDITION

      London: Printed for William Shrowsbery, at the Bible in Duke-Lane, and are to be sold by the Booksellers in London. 1683 - [16], 80p. Rebound in half calf, grey boards. A fine copy. The first edition. Wing H241. Kress 1580. Goldsmiths'. This tract, written by Sir Matthew Hale. Lord Chief Justice of the Kings Bench, about 1659 but not published until 1683, after his death, is one of the most important early treatments of the subject and remained a key point of reference for most of the later authorities such as Burn, Ruggles and Eden. The main idea was that the labour of the poor should be turned into a source of actual profit to the nation. Together with Sir Josiah Child, Sir Matthew Hale was among the most important philanthropic projectors of the second half of the seventeenth century. Both saw as the only solution to the social problems of vagrancy and destitution the creation of new organisations for employing, at a commercial profit, all the able-bodied poor who presented themselves. In spite of repeated failures, this idea of the profitable employment of the poor for more than a century never ceased to influence both the Poor Law administration itself, and the criticisms by which it was assailed. In the second place, the efforts of these seventeenth century philanthropists resulted in the statutory establishment, over a large part of the kingdom, of unions of parishes under new Local Authorities, called Guardians, Trustees, Governors, Directors or Corporations of the Poor, that lasted right down to 1834.
