        Ordonnance des cinq especes de colonnes selon la methode des anciens.

      Paris: Jean Baptiste Coignard Folio (37.3 cm, 14.75"). [8], xxvii, [1], 124 pp.; 6 plts.. 1683 First edition of this influential treatise on the five orders of classical architecture, written by the physician and scientist generally credited with the design of the eastern façade of the Louvre. Perrault's theory of proportion introduced a lasting debate over ideas of positive and arbitrary beauty. In addition to the => six leaves of plates done by Pierre Le Pautre, Louis de Chastillon, and Sebastien Le Clerc, the work is illustrated with several in-text uses of a woodcut diagram comparing the five types, as well as a title-page vignette of the arms of Louis XIV and a distinctively rendered headpiece (signed by Chastillon) of the Colbert serpent coat of arms supported by a dog and a unicorn. And yes, Claude was related to (brother, in fact, of) Charles Perrault, the fabulist and reteller of the Cinderella story and other tales. Contemporary speckled calf, spine with gilt-stamped title and compartment decorations, board edges with gilt roll; joints and extremities carefully and unobtrusively repaired and refurbished, edge gilt rubbed. Pages slightly age-toned, with scattered spots; last few leaves with margins a bit darkened. Small area of pinhole worming to outer margins, not touching text (three plates each with tiny portion of one line touched); some instances nicely refurbished with long-fiber tissue. => A clean, wide-margined, attractive copy of an attractive book.

        Vocabulario manual de las lenguas castellana, y mexicana.

      Mexico: En la imprenta de la viuda de Bernardo Calderon Small 8vo, in 4s (15 cm; 5.75"). [4] ff., 118 pp., [1] f.. 1683 This famous work is a => practical manual for the use of merchants, scribes, employers, doctors, lawyers, and just about any Spaniard having dealings and intercourse with speakers of Nahuatl, the native language, also called Aztec, of the Indian majority in central Mexico. It offers sections on "what to say to a servant when sending him to the market to buy food," and "useful phrases for talking with miners and field workers" and the like; and in keeping with its "field" orientation, it is organized not in the traditional dictionary format, beginning at "A" and ending with "Z," but rather by topics or themes. Sra. Leon-Portilla acutely observes, "Es de gran interes para conocer el nahuatl y el castellano hablados en Mexico a principios del XVII; refleja ademas muchas costumbres y creencias de las gentes de esa epoca." The first edition of this work appeared in 1611, with subsequent editions in 1668 and 1683. Thus, this would seem to be the third edition, but that is complicated by the fact that there were two editions in 1683, both from the press of the widow of Bernardo Calderon. The copy offered here conforms to one of the two copies at the John Carter Brown Library (i.e., with "Manual" on the title-page spelled with a "U" and the cross below the author's name above a second, smaller cross, in a line of printer's ornaments). => The two editions are truly completely reset. The editions of 1611, 1668, and 1683 are all very rare and have been for three generations. The 1683 printings, for example, are located in NUC Pre-1956 by a sole exemplar, that of the John Carter Brown Library, which is described as "lacking the first four leaves including the title-page, a substitute of which has been inserted from another edition; three pages mutilated, some pages closely cropped with loss of text." (Subsequently the JCB acquired a complete copy of the edition offered here.) WorldCat adds only three U.S. libraries to the list and shows foreign copies in the British Library, the National Library of Mexico (both owning incomplete copies lacking the title-page and other initial leaves), the Ibero-American Institute in Berlin, and at the Medina Collection in Chile. CCPB adds one more copy in a Madrid library. This edition is from the press of one of Mexico's famous widow printers. Provenance: Partial, unidentified, marca de fuego on top edge of volume. Evidence of readership: More than 15 instances of an early 18th-century reader giving variant Nahuatl terms or phrases, in a very small, neat, precise hand. Original limp vellum, now much cockled and shrunken, portion of vellum from spine perished, endpapers of binder's waste. Corners of most leaves rounded (!); moderate dampstaining; leaf L3 torn with loss of one line in Nahuatl and one in Spanish and costing some letters in two other lines. Some tattering of corners and foremargins. A well-used copy of a rare book, here in an interesting copy. Now housed in a quarter morocco clamshell case.

        [COLLECTION OF THIRTEEN ENGLISH PUBLICATIONS RELATING TO THE POPISH PLOT]

      London, 1683. Small folio or folio. Dbd. Some contemporary ownership inscriptions. A collection of contemporary London imprints regarding the Popish Plot, a fabricated conspiracy that claimed to discover a Catholic plot to assassinate King Charles II in 1678. The hoax was concocted by Titus Oates, an Anglican priest who grew to despise the Jesuit order, whom Oates accused were responsible for carrying out the assassination. The furor over the Popish Plot gripped London between 1678 and 1681, resulted in the execution of over twenty people, and increased long-lasting and deep divisions between Protestants and Catholics in England. The first work in the list below, Charles II's HIS MAJESTIES DECLARATION TO ALL HIS LOVING SUBJECTS (1672) provides interesting background on the King's views on religious tolerance and public worship. Most apropos to the Popish Plot is the King's refusal to provide places of public worship to the "Recusants of the Roman Catholick Religion." He only ensures Catholics "the common Exemption from the execution of the Penal Laws, and the Exercise of their Worship in their private Houses onely [sic]." Such anti-Catholic sentiment certainly contributed to the environment that allowed for the success of a phenomena like the Popish Plot. The authors of the remaining works include figures directly involved with the Plot, such as Titus Oates, John Smith, Lawrence Mowbray, and Stephen Dugdale, along with another title issued by King Charles II and a rare defense of the King's work written by John Dryden, the dominant literary figure of Restoration England. Both of these latter works touch on the religious state of the country and the Plot itself. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) [Charles II].

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ARBITRARY GOVERNMENT DISPLAYD TO THE LIFE, IN THE TYRANNICK USURPATION OF A JUNTO OF MEN CALLED THE RUMP PARLIAMENT.

      London, William Cademan, 1683.. And more especially in that of the tyrant and usurper Oliver Cromwell. 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.

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.

        Vocabulario manual de las lenguas castellana, y mexicana.

      Mexico: En la imprenta de la viuda de Bernardo Calderon Small 8vo, in 4s (15 cm; 5.75"). [4] ff., 118 pp., [1] f.. 1683 This famous work is a => practical manual for the use of merchants, scribes, employers, doctors, lawyers, and just about any Spaniard having dealings and intercourse with speakers of Nahuatl, the native language, also called Aztec, of the Indian majority in central Mexico. It offers sections on "what to say to a servant when sending him to the market to buy food," and "useful phrases for talking with miners and field workers" and the like; and in keeping with its "field" orientation, it is organized not in the traditional dictionary format, beginning at "A" and ending with "Z," but rather by topics or themes. Sra. Leon-Portilla acutely observes, "Es de gran interes para conocer el nahuatl y el castellano hablados en Mexico a principios del XVII; refleja ademas muchas costumbres y creencias de las gentes de esa epoca." The first edition of this work appeared in 1611, with subsequent editions in 1668 and 1683. Thus, this would seem to be the third edition, but that is complicated by the fact that there were two editions in 1683, both from the press of the widow of Bernardo Calderon. The copy offered here conforms to one of the two copies at the John Carter Brown Library (i.e., with "Manual" on the title-page spelled with a "U" and the cross below the author's name above a second, smaller cross, in a line of printer's ornaments). => The two editions are truly completely reset. The editions of 1611, 1668, and 1683 are all very rare and have been for three generations. The 1683 printings, for example, are located in NUC Pre-1956 by a sole exemplar, that of the John Carter Brown Library, which is described as "lacking the first four leaves including the title-page, a substitute of which has been inserted from another edition; three pages mutilated, some pages closely cropped with loss of text." (Subsequently the JCB acquired a complete copy of the edition offered here.) WorldCat adds only three U.S. libraries to the list and shows foreign copies in the British Library, the National Library of Mexico (both owning incomplete copies lacking the title-page and other initial leaves), the Ibero-American Institute in Berlin, and at the Medina Collection in Chile. CCPB adds one more copy in a Madrid library. This edition is from the press of one of Mexico's famous widow printers. Provenance: Partial, unidentified, marca de fuego on top edge of volume. Evidence of readership: More than 15 instances of an early 18th-century reader giving variant Nahuatl terms or phrases, in a very small, neat, precise hand. Original limp vellum, now much cockled and shrunken, portion of vellum from spine perished, endpapers of binder's waste. Corners of most leaves rounded (!); moderate dampstaining; leaf L3 torn with loss of one line in Nahuatl and one in Spanish and costing some letters in two other lines. Some tattering of corners and foremargins. A well-used copy of a rare book, here in an interesting copy. Now housed in a quarter morocco clamshell case.

        EINE NACHRICHT WEGEN DER LANDSCHAFFT PENNSILVANIA IN AMERICA

      Frankfurt, 1683. Gathered signatures, unbound. Lightly tanned. Very good. In a half morocco slipcase. A variant printing of the second German edition of the founding tract of Pennsylvania, William Penn's SOME ACCOUNT OF THE PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA. Penn's description of the new province was first published in London in 1681; there were three English, two German, and one Dutch editions in the next two years, all aimed at stimulating emigration to America. This German edition is a variant of the one described by Bonner & Fraser, and was originally published as part of a German periodical, DIARIUM EUROPAEUM. Penn begins his tract by reviewing successful colonization efforts in history. He then discusses Pennsylvania, "...describing the location, climate, water, soil, and air. He went on to explain how easy it was to reach the Atlantic for trade...products and resources available, and crops that could be raised....in the second section, Penn wrote about how the province would be governed, and promised that no laws would be made or taxes raised without the consent of the freemen. He promised to consult with the first purchasers in writing the constitution. The proprietor then outlined conditions under which land could be obtained....he combined practical information about the opportunities for farmers, craftsmen, and younger sons with a call for men of special spiritual maturity....Penn offered practical advice about the cost of passage, what to take, and how much capital would be needed....in conclusion, Penn asked readers to be realistic about the problems as well as the opportunities" - Bronner & Fraser. All editions of Penn's tract are rare. Plainly in the case of German emigrants, this tract was particularly successful in encouraging emigration.

And yes, Claude was related to (brother, in fact, of) Charles Perrault, the fabulist and reteller of the Cinderella story and other tales. Contemporary speckled calf, spine with gilt-stamped title and compartment decorations, board edges with gilt roll; joints and extremities carefully and unobtrusively repaired and refurbished, edge gilt rubbed. Pages slightly age-toned, with scattered spots; last few leaves with margins a bit darkened. Small area of pinhole worming to outer margins, not touching text (three plates each with tiny portion of one line touched); some instances nicely refurbished with long-fiber tissue. => A clean, wide-margined, attractive copy of an attractive book.

        OTTOMAN EMPIRE: Accuratissima et Maxima Totius Turcici Imperii Tabula cum Omnibus suis Regionibus Novissima Delineatio.

      - This attractive map was one of the most popular and influential maps of the Ottoman Empire and its borderlands produced during the era of the Great Turkish War (1683-1699), an epic contest between Turkey and the Austrian Habsburg Empire for domination of South Central Europe. The map is centred on the Middle East and extends eastward to embrace Persia and the entire Arabian Peninsula, while reaching northwestwards into Europe as far as Munich and Dresden. The purpose of the map was to depict the vast domains of the Ottoman Empire and its contested borderlands with the European Christian powers and Persia. Cartographically speaking, the map assumes a relatively conservative form. Much of the Arabian Peninsula and the eastern Mediterranean assumes the shape first brought into print by Venetian mapmakers during the mid-16th Century. Particularly notable, Danckert’s projection exaggeratedly narrows the Persian Gulf, while the some the coastal areas of the Arabian Peninsula evince more recent improvements gleaned from the VOC, building upon earlier Portuguese mapping. The depiction of Turkey proper is still along 16th Century Venetian lines. The Caspian Sea maintains the archaic egg-like shape it had on all maps prior to the surveys of the Dutchman Carl van Velden, conducted 1719-21, done at the behest of Czar Peter the Great. Danckerts’s issue of the map was perfectly timed to coincide with the Great Turkish War (1683 - 1699), one of the turning points in European history. In essence, this lengthy conflict hailed the gradual decline of the Ottoman Empire at the lands of the European Christian powers. That being said, the war commenced with a stunning scare for the Europeans. In 1683, an Ottoman army broke out of Hungary to besiege Vienna, the Habsburg capital. This sent shockwaves throughout Europe, and only the intervention of Poland’s King Jan Sobieski saved the city. In 1684, the region’s main Christian powers formed the Holy League, marking the first time that they had all joined forces to fight to Ottomans. The Turks were also caught off-guard by recent changes in European military tactics, as their massive armies had great difficulty contending the Austrians’ new and highly mobile artillery units. This quickly turned the tables, as the Allies inflicted a succession of crushing defeats upon the Ottomans. The Second Battle of Mohács (1687) restored virtually all of Hungary to the Habsburgs. The decisive showdown of the war occurred at the Battle of Zenta (1697) in Serbia, whereby an Allied force under Prince Eugene of Savoy crushed the main army of the Ottoman Sultan Mustafa II. The Ottomans sued for peace and the war was concluded by the Treaty of Karlowitz (1699). Austria gained all of Hungary, many areas in the Balkans and Transylvania. The war was highly consequential in that is signaled the progressive decline of the Ottoman Empire. However, it would not be long before war between the European-Turkish wars were to resume. While many other 17th Century Dutch maps depicted the Ottoman Empire, Danckerts’ production received particular favour. It shows all of the territory concerned in finely engraved detail, and while its title cartouche features ‘exotic’ Ottoman figures in elaborate dress, the map adeptly captured the mood of times that called for more restrained decorative adornment in favour of cartographic clarity. As Amsterdam mapmakers then enjoyed a dominant position in the global map market, the present map quickly became one of the definitive contemporary geographic conceptions of the Ottoman Empire throughout Europe. It is also most probable that examples of the map were also acquired by Ottoman scholars and officials in Istanbul. The precise dating of the publication of the present map remains ambiguous. Most of the surviving examples were preserved within composite atlases, although some were certainly sold separately. It is thought that the earliest examples appeared in Danckerts atlases issued around 1680, yet

        A LETTER FROM WILLIAM PENN PROPRIETARY AND GOVERNOUR OF PENNSYLVANIA IN AMERICA, TO THE COMMITTEE OF THE FREE SOCIETY OF TRADERS OF THAT PROVINCE, RESIDING IN LONDON

      [London], 1683. Folio. Tan calf, title in gilt on spine, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Calf lightly scuffed. Text toned and stained. Titlepage backed with paper at an early date, closing tears and small holes; outer edges of each text leaf remargined, with losses supplied. A fair copy of a rare work. One of the earliest and most significant descriptions of Pennsylvania, written by William Penn. "[William Penn's] most informative and valuable promotional tract was the one written to the Free Society of Traders...after he had lived in Pennsylvania for ten months" - Bronner & Fraser. Among the notable features of this tract are Penn's personal observations of the American Indians of the region. Philadelphia is described by Penn as follows: "The city of Philadelphia now extends in length, from river to river, two miles, and in breadth near a mile...and as its now placed and modelled between two navigable rivers upon a neck of land, and that ships may ride in good anchorage, in six or eight fathom water in both rivers, close to the city, and the land of the city level, dry and wholesome; such a scituation is scarce to be parallel'd...The city (as the model [i.e. Holme's plan] shews) consists of a large Front-street to each river, and a High-street (near the middle) from Front (or river) to Front, of one hundred foot broad, and a Broad street in the middle of the city, from side to side, of the like breadth. In the center of the city, is a square of ten acres; at each angle are to be houses for publick affairs, as a Meeting-House, Assembly or State-House, Market-House, School-House, and several other buildings for publick concerns. There are also in each quarter of the city a square of eight acres, to be for the like uses, as the Moor-fields in London; and eight streets (besides the said High Street) that run from Front to Front, and twenty streets (besides Broad-street) that run cross the city, from side to side; all these streets are of fifty foot breadth." All editions of Penn's LETTER are rare, and copies with the Holme map exceedingly so. The Holme map in this copy is supplied in facsimile. Four versions of this work were published by Penn in 1683 with variant text to the title and varying collations. This copy corresponds to Bronner & Fraser's second edition, third issue. Referring to the final leaf and the map, Church states: "this list and plan are usually lacking." No complete copy of this work has appeared at auction since the 1967 Streeter sale.

        Psalterium davidis cum canticis sacris et selectis aliquot orationibus [Psalter of David with sacred canticles and several selected prayers]; uncut sheets of an illustrated imprint on paper by the Plantin-Moretus press

      UNCUT SHEETS OF AN ILLUSTRATED IMPRINT IN LATIN ON PAPER, Antwerp, Plantin-Moretus press, 1683. Full sheets: 500 x 394 mm.; each folio: 125 x 65 mm. 25 large sheets and one half sheet (with the index), now all folded in half, each sheet except the final half sheet containing one quire of twelve folios (24 pages) when folded and cut, forming a codex of 616 pages, complete (collation, i-xxv12 xxvi8), quires signed, printed in Roman type in red and black, illustrated title page in red and black with woodcut of David with a harp, six woodcut initials (some now difficult to interpret, but including the Virgin and Child on p. 545 and the Trinity on p. 572) handsome printer?'s mark in red (a hand holding a compass, lettered ?"labore et constantia?" [by labor and constancy]). BINDING: Unbound. TEXT: This is a complete set of the original unfolded sheets for an elegant Psalter printed by the Plantin-Moretus press in 1683. Hand-press books were printed in large sheets, which were then folded and cut to form a codex. The survival of these sheets allows us to see this Psalter at its birth, so to speak, just as it emerged from the printing press. Normally after each sheet was folded into a quire, the quires would have been sewn together and either sent to a binder for a permanent cover or loosely stiched together so a customer could later have the volume bound as he or she preferred. Books may have been proofed at the press while still in whole sheets, although there are no corrections on this example. Books were also sometimes exported as piles of unfolded sheets, perhaps explaining the origin of this example. That said, unfolded (and uncut) sheets rarely survive, and most surviving examples are fragments of a single sheet. This example of a complete seventeenth-century book as unfolded sheets is an important artifact that provides almost unparalleled opportunities for teaching and collections devoted to the material history of the book. PROVENANCE: At the time of this book?'s printing in 1683, the head of the Plantin-Moretus press was Balthasar III Moretus (1674-1696). The press had been founded by Christopher Plantin in the sixteenth century in Antwerp (it found its permanent home in 1564). At the time, Antwerp was an established center of printing woodcuts, engravings, and books, and with the success of the Plantin press it became one of the centers of the international booktrade. CONDITION: First and last sheets darkened, many corners folded, and some fraying or chipping at edges, but otherwise in very good condition. Full description and photographs available (TM 765).

Erstdruck! - - Mathematik, Statistik und Versicherung - "Auch selbst hat sich Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) eingehend mit Fragen der Versicherungsmathematik, insbesondere des Barwertes, des Gesundheitswesens und der Statistik befaßt. Er forderte die jährliche Veröffentlichung von Geburts- und Sterbelisten im Interesse des Ausbaus der Personenversicherung. Außerdem dachte er an eine "Reservekasse als Nothpfennig für Witwen und Waisen", wofür jedem Beamten von seiner Besoldung jeweils ein bestimmter Betrag abgezogen werden sollte, um die Hinterbliebenen vor dem äußersten Ruin und Armut nach dem Tode des Ernährers zu schützen. - - Dem weiteren Fortschritt des Versicherungswesens kam schließlich außer der Erfindung seiner Rechenmaschine die Entwicklung der Zinseszinsrechnung zu statten, die er 1683 in der damaligen Gelehrtenzeitschrift "Acta Eruditorum" veröffentlichte." Peter Koch, Geschichte der Versicherungswissenschaft in Deutschland: Aus Anlass seiner . (1998), pp.61-62 - - "A detailed legal and economic apologia for the principle of discounting with compound interest is to be found for the first time in the works of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 1682. He shows that the calculation of capital values follows from three self-evident legal maxims for the premature redemption of a debt. Compound interest is a result of the reinvestment of money released from an investment. And that is why the discussion on whether compound interest is usury was bound to lead to the discovery of the reinvestment premises in investment accounting procedures." Hans Pohl & Bernd Rudolph (Ed.): German Yearbook on Business History 1985, p.32 - - Ferner findent sich in diesem Monatsheft von Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708) seine "Methodus datae figurae, aut quadraturam, aut impossibilitatem ejusdem quadraturae determinandi (pp.433-437, 1 Holzschnitt).
