Mexican imprint-1683] Medina, B. de
Edición de Juan de Ribera, Mex. "Life of the First Mexican Saint - a Rare Mexican Imprint - Includes the Fine Plate, Almost Always Missing - NO COPIES in US Libraries". [Mexican imprint-1683]. 4to; Engraved plate tipped to second leaf, illustration on leaf 20. [20], 64, [8] leaves; later vellum. FIRST EDITION of the life of Saint Philip of Jesus, a Mexican who was one of 26 Franciscan missionaries crucified in Japan in 1597. The plate, depicting the crucified Philip pierced with two spears, is not found in most copies. Saint Philip of Jesus (Spanish: San Felipe de Jesús) was a Mexican Catholic missionary who became one of the Twenty-six Martyrs of Japan, the first Mexican saint and patron saint of Mexico City. Philip was born in Mexico City in 1572. Though unusually frivolous as a boy, he joined the Reformed Franciscans of the Province of St. Didacus, founded in Mexico by St. Peter Baptista, with whom he suffered martyrdom later. After some months in the Order, Philip grew tired of religious life, left the Franciscans in 1589, took up a mercantile career, and went to the Philippines, another Spanish colony, where he led a life of pleasure. Later he desired to re-enter the Franciscans and was again admitted at Manila in 1590. Baltasar de Medina, the author, was born in México in 1634. At a very early age he entered the Order of the Brothers of St. James (dieguinos in Spanish) and there followed strict and rigorous rules as well as the religious ideas of the discalced dieguinos who imposed an austere life on their community: poverty, chastity, and renunciation. * Medina, Mexi … [Click Below for Full Description]

He studied with various European artists before settling in Brussels, where he was court painter to Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma until 1592.

Cubero Sebastiano, Pedro
Naples, Giuseppe Criscolo, 1683. 4to (157 x 202 mm). (8), 339, (5) pp. With additional engraved title and 2 portraits. Original papered boards with handwritten lettering to spine. First Italian edition of an interesting and detailed account of the first overland journey from Spain to the East Indies (1671-80) made by the Spanish missionary Sebastian Pedro Cubero. Interestingly, Cubero covered most of his route by land, as would later Careri, thus constantly being able to observe the customs, religions, ceremonies and costumes of the peoples he visited, describing them in considerable detail. After spending time in Italy, where he was appointed as a missionary to Asia and the East Indies, Cubero travelled by way of Istanbul and Moscow to Iran, visiting Isfahan ("Hispaham") and Bandar Abbas, after which he finally arrived in India. After crossing to Malacca he was imprisoned by the Dutch and later banished from the city. He then proceeded to the Philippines and ultimately, by way of Mexico, back to Europe. "After a stint as confessor in the imperial army in Hungary, Cubero became one of the notable travellers of the seventeenth century. What set him apart was the variety of his traveller's hats. Most obviously a missionary [.], he also became [.] a representative figure of the whole exploratory enterprise. By circumnavigating the globe in his travels, he was recognized in his own time to be another Magellan, Drake, or Cavendish" (Noonan). Included are three very three very detailed chapters of devoted to China, Tartary and the Chinese-Tartarian wars. Additionally, there are i … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESZTERGOM, siege of.]
Venice and Piacenza, Tomaso Zambelli, [1683]. 4to, pp. [4]; woodcut crowned, double-headed eagle to title, woodcut initial; light stain to blank upper margin of title; uncut, unbound; very good.An unrecorded printing of this newsletter reporting on the capture, in October 1683, of Esztergom, in northern Hungary, by the armies of Charles V, Duke of Lorraine, and John III Sobieski, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania. Esztergom was first captured by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1543, and had been in Ottoman hands since 1605.'The Turkish grand vizir Kara Mustafa Pasha had failed in dismal fashion in the unforgettable siege of Vienna (from 14 July to 12 September 1683), the Ottoman disaster of the century. In their retreat the Turks were badly defeated on 9 October at Parkány (Štúrovo), and after a brief siege they had to give up Esztergom . the Turks surrendered Esztergom (on 26 October) with hardly any loss of life which was, nevertheless, another serious setback for Kara Mustafa . He was strangled at Belgrade on 25 December by order of Sultan Mehmed IV' (K.M. Setton, Venice, Austria and the Turks in the seventeenth century, p. 271).The Distinta relatione discusses the military importance of Esztergom, preparations for the attack, the taking of the city and castle, the spoils captured (arms and victuals), the cleaning of the basilica, and the Vizier's flight to Belgrade.Not traced on COPAC, OCLC or ICCU. Other 1683 printings are extremely rare.

A Paris chez Gabriel Quinet 1683 1A Paris, chez Gabriel Quinet, 1683. In-12 de (4)-193-(3) pp., veau brun granité, dos orné à nerfs (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de ce recueil de Bouts-rimez, publié en l'honneur de Louis XIV, rassemblés par Jean Mignon, Maître de Musique en la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (1664-1694). Les bouts-rimés, pièces en vers composées sur des rimes données, furent très en vogue à la cour et à la ville à partir du milieu du XVIIe siècle. Le poète français Dulot en serait l'inventeur (vers 1648) ; l'acte de naissance est raconté par Ménage : « Lors d'une réunion [dans la la fameuse chambre bleue d'Arthénice de l'hôtel de Rambouillet], Dulot se plaignit qu'on lui avait dérobé quelques papiers, et particulièrement trois cents sonnets qu'il regrettait plus que le reste. Quelqu'un ayant témoigné sa surprise qu'il en eût fait un si grand nombre, il répliqua que c'étaient des sonnets en blanc, c'est à dire des bouts-rimés de tous les sonnets qu'il avait envie de remplir. Cela sembla plaisant, et depuis on commença à faire, par une espèce de jeu, dans les compagnies, ce que Dulot faisait sérieusement ». Même les gazettes se prirent au jeu et proposèrent chaque mois à leurs abonnés, d'en composer, tâches comparables aux mots croisés que l'on trouve dans nos journaux. « Ce fut un moment de fureur dont il est impossible de donner la moindre idée ; de graves personnages, des poètes en renom, des magistrats, des savants, se livrèrent ouvertement à ces petits jeux innocents ».

Lugd. Batav. (Leiden), 1683 & Lugd. Batav. (Leiden), 1683. 12mo. Bound in one cont. full vellum. Title in old hand on back. De Musculis: (4), 111 pp. and 1 folded engraved plate with 4 figs. - Observationes Anatomicæ: (12), 108 pp. and 3 folded engraved plates. Light scattered brownspots, but good copies. ¶ Two very scarce works by Steensen describing his exceptional discoveries relating to the Ducts, the Glands and the mechanics of Muscles."De Musculis..." is the Leiden issue, the third publication and the second printed outside Denmark. The first edition was published in Copenhagen in 1664. The work, which is divided into two parts, contains Steensen's famous investigations on the anatomy and physiology of the different types of muscles, in which he classifies them according to fibres and fibre-functions, and concludes that the heart is a muscle with automatic movement, totally against classical and contemporary authorities. The second part deals with the Ducts and Glands giving a survey of his earlier findings, such as Stensen's Duct, which gave rise to the controversy about priority with Blasius. And then he published a long row of new discoveries on the lymphatic glands, in reality he here lists 11 new discoveries. "In this work (De Musculis et Glandulis) Steno laid the foundation of our present conception of muscular mechanics. He "at once grasped the significance of the fibrillar structure of skeletal muscle and realised that the tensile forces developed in each individual fibra became summated into the response of the muscle as a whole" (Fulton).

Contemp. full vellum with ms. spine title. A very rare and extraordinarily interesting volume published as a series of bi-weekly news sheets in the wake of the 1683 siege of Vienna, consisting of single sheets, each with a title ("Türckis. Estats- und Krieges-Bericht") and number, a woodcut on the recto, and from no. 76 onward a date (26 May-22 Dec. 1684). This series of more than 130 large woodcuts by Melchior Lorck, the Danish draughtsman who only recently was hailed as "one of the sixteenth century's most original artists" and to whose life and work the publication of a five-volume monograph by E. Fischer (cf. below) paid ample tribute, provides us with the hitherto most extensive western-commissioned visual record of Ottoman society and Islamic culture in general. It is here published for the first time with the accompanying text written by the artist himself during two extended stays in Constantinople. Only two copies recorded at auction, the last one being incomplete, with three leaves missing, and heavily restored with the title-page and map partly supplied in facsimile (Christie's London, 13 July 2016, lot 188, £74,500). - The editor is suggested to have been E.

1683. Torino, 1772. 187 cm x 238 cm. Incisione all'acquaforte stampata in 24 rami e tagliata anticamente in 94 riquadri applicati su seta. Colorata anticamente a tempera con gli stemmi delle citt... miniati. Grande e importante carta degli Stati Sabaudi (Piemonte, Valle d'Aosta, Savoia, Liguria) e della parte occidentale della Lombardia. Incisa da Jacopo Stagnon, questa carta deriva - con opportune modifiche e aggiunte territoriali - da quella del 1683 di Tommaso Borgonio, il pi-- importante cartografo piemontese del '600, cui fu affidato da Carlo Emanuele II il compito di studiare in modo completo, con ricognizioni e rilevamenti grafici, il proprio dominio. Un modello fondamentale per i decenni successivi, la mappa fu utilizzata per scopi civili e militari; lo stesso Napoleone, nel 1796, per la pianificazione delle proprie campagne belliche ne richiese la consultazione al Depot de la Guerre di Parigi. La mappa Š arricchita da elementi decorativi come la grande aquila che regge il cartiglio con i dati tipografici, una rosa dei venti e numerose imbarcazioni sul Mar Ligure.

Upper margins slightly trimmed at some time, no loss to printed area, faintest browning to title page offset from portrait, tiny hole in margin of P1, no loss of notes, a few pages lightly age-browned, 2 very small neat old repairs to fore-edge of page 337, nowhere near text. A very good clean sturdy copy in a handsome modern binding, lacking 1 advert leaf as noted. The first 2 books are concerned with the art of war of the Greeks and Romans, page 157 onwards is devoted to the modern arts of war. Sir James Turner (1615-1689) graduated master of arts from Glasgow University in 1631 and then embraced an army career, serving and fighting in many European countries. 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).

TEN RHIJNE (Willem) [ou TEN RHYNE (Wilhem)]
Londres et La Haye, Robert Chiswell et Arnold Leer, 1683, in-8, [46]-334-[2] pages et 6 planches, dont 5 repliées, veau havane de l'époque, dos refait à l'imitation, Le premier livre d'acupuncture du monde occidental, très rare. 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".

Edition Originale de cet ouvrage rare et curieux composé à l’imitation des célèbres 'Relations du Parnasse' (1613) de Trajan Boccalini (1556-1613), ouvrage satirique cité dans la préface. Employant la même liberté de ton, il évoque à travers des relations imaginaires différentes questions politiques ou littéraires de l’Europe de son époque. On trouve notamment les chapitres suivants : "Chinenses recipiuntur in Parnassum ; obtinent Jus venum exponendi merces Politicas" mettant en scène des Chinois, "Demonstrat Theophrastus Paracelsus quam exigua prudentia in vita indigeamus humana", "Renatus Cartesius Aristotelem publice appellat ‘Asellum Arefactum’" où Descartes traite en public Aristote de "petit âne desséché", "Deliberat Apollo cum Virtuosis de remedenda Multitudine Librorum" traitant de la trop grande abondance des livres et des moyens d’y remédier, "Demonstrat Thomas Campanella Thaleti Milesio quam fallax ex cognitione sui ipsius in conjectandis aliorum animis sit conclusio", etc. A la fin de l’ouvrage se trouve un petit texte avec page de titre séparée, exposant pourquoi David était devenu le Roi des Juifs.

Lucretius Carus (Titus)
L. Lichfield. for Anthony Stephens, 1683. with an engraved frontispiece by M. Burgher, under instructions from Creech, a little worming in the lower margins towards the end, not affecting text, pp. [xliv], 223, 59, 8vo, contemporary calf, double blind fillets on sides with corner ornaments, old (possibly contemporary) paper label attached to spine, lettered in ink, lacking the L, a little rubbed, especially the spine, stain to lower cover, still a good copy,ownership inscription on fly-leaf 'Ex Libris Gulielmi Dod, e Coll. Wadham, Oxon', and his ownership inscription (English) dated 1684 on the title-page. Second Creech edition. Creech's "incomparable translation" (Thomas Hearne) was highly praised by Dryden, and vied in popularity with Dryden's "Virgil" and Pope's "Homer." It was an immediate success: a second edition had to be printed within a few months. Added to this edition are the frontispiece, extra notes, and a dazzling array of commendatory verses, by Dryden (not signed, but identified in a contemporary hand: MacDonald 231 - not in fact by Dryden, but by Tonson), Tate, Otway, Aphra Behn (the longest, at 7 pages), Waller, and others. Most of these celebrate Creech's connection with Wadham: William Dod might well have known him. (ESTC R23065; Gordon 331A; Grolier "Wither to Prior" 237)

CANTELLI GIACOMO
1683. Incisione in rame, mm 530x410. Splendido esemplare in fascinosa coloritura antica di questa non comune carta tratta dall'opera Il Mercurio Geografico, degli editori romani De Rossi e per la cura di Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola, geografo del Duca d'Este. L'atlante risulta edito dal 1690 circa con diverse edizioni successive. Ottime condizioni, lievi fioriture marginali ed alone ai margini. La carta raffigura tutta la penisola indocinese estendosi dal Bengala ai confini della Cina fino a Sumatra a sud. Nell'angolo in basso a destra è riportato il titolo all'interno dell'ampio cartiglio, decorato da un felino e due uomini. Giacomo Cantelli nacque a Vignola, come ribadisce con la sua firma, e divenne il primo cartografo ufficiale della Corte di Modena, nel 1685, quando il Duca Francesco II lo nominò cartografo e custode della biblioteca. Copper engraving, mm 530x410. Highly fascinating example in extremely decorative antique colouring of this scarce map extending from Sumatra to the Bengala river and China river. Modern day countries include India, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaya. Showing the major rivers, mountains and cities. In bottom right corner a decorative cartouche, surmounted with two figures in Asian garb and a leopard. From Il Mercurio Geografico, printed by De Rossi. Giacomo Cantelli was born in Vignola, as he remarked with his signature, and was the first official cartographer of the Court of Modena, in 1685, when the Duke Francis II appointed him geographer.

DUVERNEY, [Guichard Joseph].
A Paris: chez Estienne Michallet, 1683. FIRST EDITION. G&M 1545 and 3351. The first scientific account of the structure, function and diseases of the ear. "Duverney was the first to depict the arteries, veins, and nerve branches of the auricle, the first to demonstrate that the bony part of the external auditory meatus originates from the annulus tympanicum, and the first to describe and illustrate the communication between the tympanic cavity and the cells of the mastoid process. He corrected a long-standing error by stating that the Eustachian tube was not an organ of breathing or hearing..." (Norman). Duverney pointed out that sound is conducted by the bones of the skull, and first suggested the theory of hearing later developed by, and accredited to, Helmholtz. For a full account of this book's content and importance, see Stevenson & Guthrie, pp. 38-39, and Politzer, History of Otology pp. 117-124: "...a milestone in the science of otology..." Robert J. Ruben, Hear! Hear! Six centuries of otology (2002), 22. Grolier Medicine, 36.

Backed with tissue, some old dampstaining, some loss at margins but printed area complete except for a very small area of the royal arms.

Woodcut royal arms at head, large decorative initial capital. 1 vols. 14-1/2 x 11-1/4 inches. King's Evil and the Royal Touch. From the Middle Ages in England and France it was believed that scrofula, or "the King's Evil," could be cured by the touch of royalty; ceremonies were held in which the King would touch, and "heal," hundreds of afflicted subjects. By the late 1400s it was believed that one could also be cured by touching a type of coin called an angel, which had been touched by the monarch. After angels ceased to be minted in the 1620s the same effect was said to be achieved by touching a gold medallion embossed much like the old coin. Some monarchs touched many people. King Henry IV of France touched up to 1500 at one time. The last English monarch to carry out this practice was Queen Anne, who died in 1714, but it continued in France. Louis XV touched more than 2000 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Leipzig: Commercial Law; Leipziger Juden-Ordnung]
[Leipzig]; Christolph Günther, 1683. Boards bound with Latin missal with musical notation. 16mo. (4) , 132, 4 pages. Only edition. In German. A compendium of regulations of the City of Leipzig. Of special interest are the edicts concerning Jews: "Leipziger Juden-Ordnung de anno 1682." The relationship between this city in Saxony and the Jews is an anomaly. On the one hand, Jews were banished from Saxony in 1430 - (it took three centuries for them to be readmitted to Leipzig) . On the other hand, on account of the seasonal Leipzig Fair, the number of Jewish merchants present in the City would swell to the point that these visitors were formally authorized to conduct gatherings in their own prayer-rooms ("Judenschulen") . Indeed, permitted to attend the Fair were not only German Jews, but Jews of Eastern Europe as well. In the present text, Johann-Georg III, Duke of Saxony, mandates several laws concerning Jewish tradesmen and the nature of Jewish participation in the Fair. In order to attend, the Jew required attestation to his professional honesty ("ein Ehrlicher Handelsmann") (par. 1) ; he was forbidden to lodge in the suburbs (par. 2) ; and at all times, he must be in possession of his various individual passes (pars. 3-6) . Also, legal-clauses are addressed to the wives, children and servants of the Jewish tradesmen visiting (pars.10-12) . Of peculiar note: Jewish musicians were barred from trading altogether (par. 21) . See JE, Vol. VII, pp. 673-4. Subjects: German Law. Books before 1700. OCLC lists 14 copies worldwide.

First Italian edition of a fascinating and detailed account of the first overland journey from Spain to the East Indies (1671-80) made by the Spanish missionary Sebastian Pedro Cubero. Interestingly, Cubero covered most of his route by land, as would later Careri, thus constantly being able to observe the customs, religions, ceremonies and costumes of the peoples he visited, describing them in considerable detail. After spending time in Italy, where he was appointed as a missionary to Asia and the East Indies, Cubero travelled by way of Istanbul and Moscow to Iran, visiting Isfahan ("Hispaham") and Bandar Abbas, after which he finally arrived in India. After crossing to Malacca he was imprisoned by the Dutch and later banished from the city. He then proceeded to the Philippines and ultimately, by way of Mexico, back to Europe. "After a stint as confessor in the imperial army in Hungary, Cubero became one of the notable travellers of the seventeenth century. What set him apart was the variety of his traveller's hats. Most obviously a missionary [.], he also became [.] a representative figure of the whole exploratory enterprise. By circumnavigating the globe in his travels, he was recognized in his own time to be another Magellan, Drake, or Cavendish" (Noonan). Included are three very three very detailed chapters of devoted to China, Tartary and the Chinese-Tartarian wars. Additionally, there are im … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATHER, Samuel
[Dublin]: n.p., 1683. FIRST EDITION. With 3 pages of index in a contemporary hand following the text. Modern calf, morocco spine label. Signature of Frederic Faber of University College on the paste-down (see below). First edition. Considered to be among the most significant and comprehensive treatises on Christian typology, this work - a collection of sermons and notes written by Samuel Mather, and subsequently edited and published posthumously by his brother, Nathaniel Mather -carries on the traditional teachings of his illustrious family. Typology is, broadly, the interpretation of people and events in the Old Testament in a manner that portends the life of Christ and events in the New Testament. The author's definition of "type" embraces the idea that "some outward or sensible thing ordained of God under the Old Testament to represent and hold forth something of Christ in the New," which "represents a higher spiritual thing, which may be called a sign or a resemblance . . . ." Typology was used extensively in sermons, conversion narratives, and poetry. The title of each sermon begins with the word "Gospel" signifying Mather's belief that the Gospel is already contained in the Old Testament. Other well-known writers of typology included Jonathan Edwards, Emily Dickinson, Milton (in Paradise Lost), and later Puritan historians such as Cotton Mather and Edward Johnson. Samuel Mather (1626-1671), whose father, Richard Mather, was a founder of the Massachusetts theocracy and the grandfather of Cotton Mather, was the first of the five named Fellows of Harvard Unive … [Click Below for Full Description]

Troili Giulio
In Bologna, per Gioseffo Longhi, 1683. In 4°, leg. ottocentesca in mz. tela, 3 parti in 1 Volume: pp.(8nn)-120 [Parte Prima e Seconda]; pp.(4nn)-64 [Parte Terza]. Seconda edizione per la prima e seconda parte, fedele ristampa dell'ediz. originale uscita nel 1672, con la stessa dedica e le stesse figure. Prima edizione per la terza parte. Le tre parti riunite costutuiscono un rarissimo e pregevole insieme, perché nell'edizione del 1683 la terza parte si trova spesso mancante. Prima e seconda parte: Al front. stemma xilografato di Guido e Filippo Rangoni, cui l'opera è dedicata, 1 bella figura a piena p. al verso del front. + 58 belle tavv. xilografate a piena p. n.t. e contenute in bordura floreale (al verso di ciascuna tavola il testo esplicativo), capilettera e finalini ornati. Terza parte: Marca tipografica al front + 9 fig. a piena p. n.t. e 7 piccole figure intercalate. (Cfr.Autori italiani del '600, Libreria Vinciana 4425: "Opera che, come spiegato nel titolo, per la sua irriverente antiscientificità spiacque ai dotti bibliografi, ma che essendo ben ordinata all'uso pratico, era abitualmente utilizzata da quasi tutti i professori. Mal giudicato dal Comolli e dal Riccardi questo libro è invece lodato dal Cicognara secondo il quale 'le tavole sono espresse con chiarezza di disegno, si insegnano molte buone pratiche ed è uno dei migliori libri in questo genere'. Insomma questo libro dovette ai suoi tempi fare scandalo segnando il triofo di una spregiudicata intelligenza pratica....").

TASGRESTI GIO. BATTISTA.
A spese di Giuseppe Corvo, 1683. Cm. 16, pp. (24) 308. Con una testata alla dedica (al Cardinale Flavio Chigi) e tre incisioni xilografiche nel testo di cui due a mezza pagina con diagrammi astrologici ed una a piena pagina con una mano su cui sono tracciate partizioni e linee spiegate in una legenda. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida con nervi passanti, dorso liscio con titoli nitidamente manoscritti. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Edizione originale di quest'opera che contiene due trattati dedicati rispettivamente all'astrologia e alla chiromanzia. L'autore è G. B. Grassetti (1609-1684) che si firmava con l'anagramma Tasgresti. Quest'ultimo si propone di dimostrare la differenza tra vera astrologia, basata sull'osservazione astronomica e sull'autorità delle Sacre Scritture, di Aristotele e dei Padri della Chiesa, e la falsa astrologia, frutto della superstizione. Segue la parte dedicata alla vera chiromanzia, fisica e naturale, contrapposta alla falsa chiromanzia detta giudiziaria, che aveva all'epoca tra i massimi esponenti Bartolomeo Coclite o il luterano Giovanni de Indagine.

Sfera armillare incisa e un'antica firma al frontespizio a stampa della parte relativa all'Europa. Timbro moderno di privata biblioteca al risguardo. Esemplare assai bello. Edizione originale in raccolta di questo atlante del mondo sino ad allora conosciuto, con la sola esclusione dell'Oceania.

Nicolas Sanson (Abbeville, 1600-Parigi, 1667), geografo regio, fu uno dei maggiori cartografi del XVII secolo, sia per la precisione delle sue rappresentazioni, sempre aggiornate sulle più recenti scoperte geografiche, sia per la finezza dell'esecuzione delle sue carte. I suoi due figli Adrien (morto nel 1708) e Guillaume (morto nel 1703) gli succedettero come cartografi del Re di Francia. Phillips, 494. Sabin, 76712. Francese [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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