      Chez Estienne Michallet 1683 - - Chez Estienne Michallet, A Paris 1683, In 12 (9x17cm), (24) 210pp., relié. - Edition originale, très rare. Illustrée de 16 planches dépliantes non signées. Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Coiffe de tête restaurée ainsi qu'un coin. Travail de vers au milieu de l'ouvrage en marge haute, quelques trous de vers sans conséquence, mais les vers ont rongé les coutures et elles sont de ce fait fragilisées de la p. 20 à la p. 200, le problème allant s'estompant. La dernière gravure a été coupée trop courte et il manque les dernières lignes de texte. Il s'agit de la première monographie scientifique de la structure de l'oreille et de ses maladies, elle est de ce fait fort précieuse, et fut déterminante pour la compréhension de cet organe peu étudié jusqu'alors. C'est par ailleurs le premier ouvrage de cet anatomiste et physiologiste réputé qui fut le professeur du dauphin et enseigna au jardin du roi. Cachet du Docteur Maurice Petit de Montereau.

        LA VERA E FALSA ASTROLOGIA

      - La vera, e falsa astrologia. Con l'aggiunta della vera, e della falsa chiromanzia.- Roma, A spese di Giuseppe Corvo, Per Michel Ercole, 1683; en 8º mayor pergamino de época, 1 hoja blanca, 12 hojas de preliminares, 271 páginas. Ejemplar falto de la parte que hace referencia a la chiromanzia, de la página 272 a la 308. Muy raro libro en el que el autor defiende la astrología considerada como astroniomía; y esta en contra siguiendo la ortodoxia católica de la época, de los astrólogos, habla de la incapacidad de estos para predecir su propia muerte.Tampoco se muestra a favor de la predición astrológica y de la quiromancia. Lamentablemente nuestro ejemplar carece de la parte de quiromancia.

        Estatutos da veneravel Igreja e Hospital de Santo Antonio da Nação Portuguesa de Roma.

      Rome, Impressa na Rev. Cam. Apost., 1683. - Woodcut of St. Anthony on title-page. Woodcut initials and tailpieces. Printed on excellent quality paper. 153 [actually 151, with pp. 145-6 skipped in numbering, as required], (4 ll.). 4°, nineteenth-century (ca. 1875?) blind-stamped olive cloth, flat spine with gilt letter, marbled endleaves. Occasional light spotting. Overall in very good to fine condition; uncut. Bookplate of Aníbal Fernandes Thomáz. Substantial note of six lines in pencil by Fernandes Thomáz on verso of front free endleaf. ---- FIRST EDITION of the statutes of the Portuguese church and hospital of Saint Anthony at Rome, difficult to obtain with the 4 leaves of index at the end. The hospital was founded in 1440 by D. Antão Martins de Chaves, Cardinal-Bishop of Porto (under the aegis of the Portuguese church in Rome) for the care of resident nationals and pilgrims.Set out here are the administration, daily operation, staffing, finances and admission standards of the hospital. The @Estatutos also specify the legal obligations and liabilities of the institution, wages, penalties for various employee abuses and the duties of the physicians, pharmacist, archivist, accountant, nurses, barber-surgeons and cook (with the kitchen's opening and closing times). Pages 54-8 contain a chapter on "Couzas pertencentes á hospidalidade e enfermeria." Book III (pp. 129-51) deals exclusively with the hospital, giving detailed information on its administration. The church, built by Martino Lunghi, was completed in 1652. This work is rare. Complete copies such as the present one, with the four unnumbered index leaves at the end, are even more difficult to obtain. A second edition appeared in Rome, 1863; a third was published in the same city in 1872.---- Krivatsy 6127: calling for 153 pp. Bibl. del Senato, @Catalogo . di statuti VI: 264-5.

Decorative initials, tail-pieces including one of a ship at sea, numerous diagrams and tables to the text, retains final blank. A little rubbed and bumped, joints just starting at the head, early ownership inscription to the title page neatly obliterated, light browning and occasional foxing to the text, last few leaves a touch mottled, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, OCLC locates copies at BnF, BL, Newberry, Wurttembergische Landesbibliothek, Paris Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, and the University of Rostock only. No copies recorded at auction. A comprehensive manual of marine navigation including a glossary of navigational terms, methods of establishing longitude, the lodestone, tables of difference, declination and ascension, and a concise course on celestial navigation. Dassié is a somewhat obscure figure, he was apparently born in Normandy, and lived and worked at various times in both le Havre and Rouen. The title pages of his work reveal that he was a "C.R.", or"chanoine régulier", a canon regular, of the Order of Saint-Ruf, an Augustinian order named for the first bishop of Avignon, with various sources describing him as master shipbuilder to the king at Le Havre, and to the coast guard at Toulon. In 1677 he published L'Architecture Navale, considered by Polak to be the first such work, and which is often found bound together with Le Routier des Indes Orientales et Occidentales, which offers a compilation of twenty-six navigations into the East and West Indies. The present work is described in Dassié's entry in the Biographie Universelle as "a testimony to the zeal and knowledge of the author, barely hinting at the advances he made in ??the nautical art". A handsome copy of this uncommon, and highly desirable work.

        Vienna assediata del Turco, 1683.

      Vienna, 1683.. Folio (280 x 190 mm). 70 ff. Italian ink ms. on paper, with a rare engraved folding map of the siege of Vienna by Johann van Ghelen (1684). 19th-century Italian blue sponged marbled boards.. A remarkable, apparently unpublished manuscript chronicle of the 1683 Siege of Vienna by the Turks, which marked the turning point in the 300-year struggle between the forces of the Central European kingdoms and the Ottoman Empire and cemented the Habsburgs power. The manuscript begins with a historical account and background, touching on the problems of religious liberty, the Hungarian resentment against German domination, and other problems which led to the interference of the Turks and their aggression against the West. The chronicle continues in great detail, almost in the form of a contemporary diary, providing a day-by-day account of the unfolding events from 1 August 1683 until the end of the siege when the defeat of the Turkish army at Vienna became the turning point in the long East-West struggle. The story gives, among other things, detailed figures of the strength of the Christian and Turkish forces, listing all regiments with their commanders and the number of troops. The pagination, which despite being a self-contained account begins on 131, and the legible uncorrected script, indicate this was likely prepared for publication in a larger work. Includes(before f. 160) a rare engraved folding map of the siege of Vienna from Johann van Ghelen's "Relazione compendiosa e veridica del famoso assedio dell'imperiale citta di Vienna, attaccata da Turchi li 14. di luglio, e liberata li 12. di settembre 1683".

        Copia de una carta escrita al Padre Fray Alonso Sandin, de la Orden de Predicadores, Difinidor y Procurador General de la Provincia del Santo Rosario de Philipinas en esta Corte; en que da noticias del estado de aquellas islas

      Mexico 1683 - Correspondence between Priests, with news on the ¿miserable¿ state of the Islands. N.d. [c.1683]. Madrid. In folio (280 mm x 184 mm). 14 ff. Unbound. Extraneous creasing, generally fresh and clean. First edition. An anonymous letter sent by a monk dated from Manila, 26th May, 1683 and clearly written by a missionary; begins making reference to the supposedly miserable state of the islands ¿Hallase en tan miserable estado aquella tierra, y tan necesitada de remedio, que parece indispensable el dexar de dar noticia de todo por los medio posibles¿. On folio 8 a new piece by the same writer of the letter starts with the title ¿Puntos que hemos sabido se escriven al Consejo contra nosostros este año, y respuesta a ellos, que haran la fee que Dios les diere luegar, porque no es possible hazer informacion, que aun para casos muy Corrientes, ni tenemos Escrivanos, ni testigos que se atrean a ayudarnos, ni aun por sueños¿; this part contains the accusations made against the Dominicans in the region and their replies, contesting the accusations & statements. Alonso de Sandin was a Spanish Priest, in 1682 he was elected Vicar General of the Philippines, Japan and China; a prominent figure, he authorized Cogolludo´s significant Historia de Yucathan for printing (1688). There has been apparently no copy for auction in over 50 years (source, AE). Provenance: Maggs, 1922, lot 360. Tavera, 2540.

Einband berieben und verschmutz, Deckel und ersten Seiten mit Wurmfraß, fingerfleckig, ein Bogen etwas gelockert, Vorsätze mit alten Besitzereintragungen, insgesamt fester Block und durchaus ordentlicher Zustand. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- typisches Hausväterbuch - Als Hausväterliteratur wird eine Literaturgattung bezeichnet, die es in dieser Form nur im deutschen Sprachraum vom 16. bis zum 18. Jahrhundert gab und die sich an die gebildeten Besitzer von Landgütern richtete, vor allem Adlige. Es handelt sich im Grunde um frühe Ratgeberliteratur, die nicht nur die Haushaltsführung und Fragen rund um die Landwirtschaft inklusive Viehzucht, Forstwirtschaft, Jagd und Imkerei behandelte, sondern auch Regeln für Familie, Ehe und Kindererziehung sowie den Umgang mit dem Personal aufstellte. Außerdem enthielten die Bücher einen Teil mit Kochrezepten, so dass sie als Vorläufer der modernen deutschsprachigen Kochbücher gelten. Die meisten Autoren waren protestantische Pfarrer und folgten in ihren Regeln für Ehe und Familie den Ansichten Martin Luthers, die er in seinen verschiedenen Schriften über Ehe und Hausstand dargelegt hatte. In anderen Ländern beschränkten sich die Autoren auf die Behandlung von Themen der Landwirtschaft, ohne ausführlich auf das Familienleben einzugehen.

Vintage owner's bookplate at the front inside cover. Richard Cumberland's classic of the Ethics branch of philosophy, largely seen as a response to Thomas Hobbes' "ethical egoism", which it was; beyond that, however, Cumberland's attitudes can be seen as a synthesis of prevailing royal, social, political and academic attitudes in Restoration England. Cumberland argued that a universal benevolence motivates each human being to altruism, in contradiction of Hobbesian exercise of free will. The second edition, 11 years after the 1672 first edition, and in solid condition. Very scarce. L17

        Gröste Denckwürdigkeiten der Welt oder so-gennante Relationes Curiosæ

      Hamburg: Thomas von Wiering, 1683-, 1691. Five volumes, quarto, 196 engraved and woodcut plates (some folding), title-pages printed in red and black, woodcut textual illustrations and initials; bound in contemporary vellum, titles lettered on spine, a few plates trimmed, some browning and spotting, but generally a very attractive set. The wonders of the world. A fine set of Happel's remarkable book of wonders, an endlessly informative series filled with the newest and most sensational news from around the world: 'a miscellany of popular information, containing short notices of curious phenomena in every part of the globe, as well as of curious historical events. The notices of American matters are numerous in all the volumes' (Sabin). Among the many wonders here described, the double-page map of the world showing ocean currents is particularly notable. Showing the entire globe from Greenland in the north to the "Süd-Land", this map is a good instance of popular interest in the mapping of the world, including the putative outline of Terra Australis: 'an important early representation of oceanographic phenomena. It illustrates Kircher's idea that there are chasms in the depths of the sea into which the water flows, then percolates through the earth and up to the tops of mountains' (National Maritime Museum, Greenwich). Happel (1647-1690) was a writer and journalist, and one of the most-widely read novelists of his time. His so-called "endless novels" with their picaresque attention to detail relied on his omnivorous fascination with social history, scientific discovery, and other novelties from around the world. This remarkable collection of "curiosities" was probably his most significant historical work, and is derived from all manner of sources including the newspapers and journals of the day; his voracious reading meant that the material represents a real snapshot of contemporary interests. This lavishly illustrated book was a sort of print version of the aristocratic collections of curiosities, with fulsome descriptions of natural history ranging from the scientific to the invented. It would be impossible to list the various subjects discussed and illustrated here, but they include the pyramids of Egypt, the tower of Babel, fossils and insects, Pharo, Babylon, mermaids, a bull-fight, Oliver Cromwell, the oracle of Delphi, Cardinal Mazarin, whaling among icebergs, and the fall of Jerusalem. Two of the more exotic plates depict a Brazilian giant devouring a man in gruesome detail, and a scene of Hottentots scoffing fresh entrails. Exact details on collation do vary, with Faber du Faur suggesting 198 and Dünnhaupt 194: the present copy, with 196, is evidently as issued, and represents an appropriate figure for such a monumental work. The first volume is the second edition, the remaining four are first editions, as with Faber du Faur's set.

      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. 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.

Durchbrochener silberner Metalleinband über schwarzem Leinen mit silberner Metall-Mittelschließe, alles in reichem Rankenornament mit zusammen 32 gefaßten, grünen und roten geschliffenen Glasperlen. Rücken und Deckel sowie Schließe jeweils durch Scharniere verbunden.. Prächtig illustriertes, vollständig gestochenes Gebetbuch des bayrischen Kupferstechers Michael Wening in einem besonders schönen Einband. - Graesse VI, 435; Kunze, Gesch. d. Buchillustr. i. Dtl. d. 16. u. 17 Jhdt., II 186 (Abb.); Stetter S. 42 f. - Michael Wenings (1645 - 1718) bekanntestes Werk ist die auf 4 Bände angelegte "Beschreibung des Churfürsten- und Herzogthums Ober- und Niedern Bayern", das 1696 mit Zustimmung des bayrischen Kurfürsten Max Emanuel begonnen wurde und mit seinen Ansichten eine einzigartige "Landaufnahme" des barocken Bayern darstellt. Seit 1668 ist Wenings Aufenthalt in München als Kupferstecher und als im Hofdienst tätiger "Türhüter auf der Ritterstuben" nachweisbar. - Das hier vorliegende Gebetbuch ist selten. Es ist Wenings erstes Werk, das im eigenen Verlag erschien. Die Auswahl der Texte mit einer Sequenz zum Meßopfer und einer großen Zahl von Psalmen, Litaneien und Gebeten stammt von dem Augustiner-Eremit Pater Fortunat Faber. Dabei wird die "Einprägsamkeit des Textes" durch den bildnerischen Buchschmuck Wenings verstärkt. Der 'Seelen Ehrenthron' ist dem Erzbischof von Salzburg Max Gandolf von Kuenburg gewidmet, dem Wening "aus unbekannten Gründen " verbunden war. Das Porträt des geistlichen Würdenträgers mit seinem bischöflichen Wappen "steuerte Carl Gustav Amling nach einem Gemälde von M. Block bei." Die Heiligen Virgil und Rupert von Salzburg zieren das Widmungsblatt, in dem auch ein Hinweis auf Wenings Hofcharge zu finden ist. Auf 35 numerierten Kupferstichen sind die verschiedenen Abläufe einer Meßfeier dargestellt. Jedem dieser Stiche ist eine Seite mit entsprechend gleicher Nummerierung ( 1 - 35) gegenübergestellt. Der gestochene Text beinhaltet jeweils 1 'Gebett bey der H:Meß' und je ein Gebet zu den zwei ebenfalls figürlich dargestellten Heiligen auf dieser Seite. Der gestochene Text der 'Siben Buß Psalm' ist umrahmt mit kleinen Darstellungen des Alten und Neuen Testamentes. Das 'Gebett wider den Türcken' ist vor dem Hintergrund der zweiten Türkenbelagerung Wiens im Jahre 1683 zu erklären. Die erste Seite dieses Gebetes zeigt einen blattgroßen Kupferstich, auf dem ein Engel mit einer Posaune und dem Schriftzug 'Victora' ein Türkenheer zerschmettert. Der gestochene Gebetstext auf der zweiten Seite wird umrahmt von von zwei gefesselten türkischen Gefangenen. - Jede Seite dieses Buches mit den gestochenen Texten, Verzierungen, Heiligendarstellungen, Bildern zur Heiligen Messe und biblischen Szenen ist aufwendig gestaltet und ein schönes Beispiel barocker Frömmigkeit und Darstellungslust. - Die Vorsätze sind aus rötlichem barockem Buntpapier. - Metalleinband stellenweise leicht schwarz angelaufen; Leinen leicht fleckig. Goldschnitt sehr matt; Buchblock stellenweise gelockert. Die ersten 4 Bll. mit kleinerem Wurmgang am unteren Rand (bei Bl.3 u. 4 bis in den Plattenrand und die Darstellung); Bl.8 u. 9 angerändert; Bl. 9 am Fußsteg mit Eckausriß (minimaler Textverlust), Bl. 13 mit kleinem Einriß am Außensteg; Bl.14 und Bl.23 mit kleinem Einriß am Fußsteg; Bll. 16 - 21 mit kleinem Wurmgang am unteren Blattrand (außerhalb des Plattenrandes); Bl. 21 mit Einriß am Fußsteg bis in den Text; Bl. 24 am Fußsteg mit größerem Eckausriß (Textverlust; bei der Darstellung des Heiligen Georgs fehlt ein Teil des Sockels mit der Namensnennung); Bl. 26 mit kleinem Einriß am Außensteg; Bl. 31 mit größerem Einriß am Fußsteg (bis in den Plattenrand); Bl.33 am Fußsteg mit kleinem Eckausriß (außerhalb des Plattenrandes); Bll.35 - 38 mit winzigem Wurmgang am unteren Blattrand; Bll.40 - 42 mit winzigem Wurmrand am unteren Blattrand; Bl. 43 am Fußsteg mit etwas größerem Eckausriß (leichter Textlust, bei der Darstellung 'Jesus Admirabilis' fehlt ein Teil der Bildunterschrift); Bl. 44 mit winzigem Wurmgang am unteren Blattrand; Bl.45 und Bl.47 mit kleinem Einriß am Kopfsteg; Bll. 48 - 52 mit winzigem Wurmgang am oberen Blattrand (teils mit altem Papier hinterlegt), Bl.55 mit kleinem Einriß am Außensteg; Bll.57 - 59 mit kleinem Wurmgang am äußeren Rand (minimaler Bildverlust); ab Bl. 51 im Bund- und Fußsteg leicht wasserrandig; teils stärker finger- , braun- und sporenfleckig.

        KONG CHRISTIAN DEN FEMTIS DANSKE LOV.

      . Prentet i Kiöbenhavn af Joachim Schmedtgen, Aar 1683. (30)+1014+(86) s. + kobberstukket portraet af kongen udfört af den franske kunstner Louis de Chomont Boudan, med et vers af Thomas Kingo under portraettet. Teksten slutter med en stor traeskaren blomstervignet med initialerne 'I S'. Indbundet i 1700tals helskindsbind med rig rygforgyldning. Ryggen med lidt smaskavanker. Med randnoter, formodentlig udfört af bogens förste ejer Christian Ulrich von Harstall. * Eksemplaret har flg. tilskrift pa fribladet: "dieses buch Verbleibet bey Meinem guth Beritzgaar. Christian Ulrich von Harstall Anno 1683 von ?? Octobre". Slaegte von Harstall var ejer af Beritzgaard fra 1654 - 1726. Originaludgaven af det mest omfattende lovkompleks i dansk retshistorie, trykt pa svaert papir. Christian V's Danske Lov vakte betydelig international opsigt, da den udkom. Den blev af samtiden anset for at overga alle andre love i retfaerdighed. Den havde direkte indflydelse pa lovgivningsarbejdet i Sverige, Preussen og Rusland i 1700-tallet, men dens virkning varede laengere. Den berömte engelske jurist Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) fremhaevede Christian V's Danske Lov som den mest fuldstaendige af alle eksisterende lovböger. Bogen blev trykt hos en af tidens förende bogtrykkere Joachim Schmedtgen, der formodentlig ogsa har udfört den blomstervignet, der afslutter teksten. Han startede sit bogtrykkeri i 1682, og skönt han ikke hörte til de egentligt privilegerede bogtrykkere, fremstillede han en raekke böger, som ved omfang og udstyr ragede höjt op over tidens övrige typografiske frembringelser. Trykkeriet virkede lige til 1735. 'Selv for et flygtigt og ukyndigt blik markerer bogtrykker Schmedtgens förste store arbejde sig som en flot og speciel bog. Den pompöse og gedigne udförelse daekker bade den kongelige ambition og glans og det praktiske behov hos svagsynede gamle maend, der forsögte at haevde retsudövelsen i rigets, i dobbelt forstand uoplyste vraer' (Erik Dal)..
