        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.

        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.

        [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".

        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. 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.

        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.

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.

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. 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.

        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

Drugulin, Historischer Bilderatlas, Nr. 3098 (dort allerdings mit Verlegeradresse Sandrart); dekorativer und detailreicher Plan der Stadt Wien mit Teilen der abgebrannten Vororte und dem Türkischen Lager: "Hier wird ersichtlich, daß die Türken nicht nur im Südabschnitt zwischen Burg- und Löwelbastei angriffen, sondern daß sie gerade auch den an der Donau gelegenen Teil der Befestigungen zwischen Neutor- und Gonzagabastion als eines ihrer deklarierten Angriffsziele betrachten. Die Zeltlager der Türken erstrecken sich jedenfalls rings um die Stadt, wobei an der Wien ganz selbstverständlich das Gebiet um die beiden Brücken über diesen Fluß (Stubenbrücke und Kärntner Brücke) von großen türkischen Verbänden kontrolliert wurde." (Opll); der typografische Text beschreibt die Belagerung bis zum 17. August, die umfangreiche Legende (A-Z, a-z, 1-46) beschreibt die Tore, Basteien, Plätze und Straßen in der Stadt; wohl erste Fassung des Einblattdrucks, eine spätere Variante erschien nach der Entsatzschlacht bei J.L. Buggel in Nürnberg; von ausgezeichneter Erhaltung, verso Montagereste.
