Perrault, Claude.
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.

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.

Popish Plot]: Oates, Titus, John Dryden, and others:
London, 1683. Thirteen separate imprints. 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 fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Penn, William]
Frankfurt, 1683. [273]-304pp. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arenas, Pedro de.
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 gene … [Click Below for Full Description]

Originele Schildpadband met 2 zilveren sloten, 4 zilveren schanierstukken en goud op snede, 12° (een enkel klein stukje van de band gesprongen, de rug van metaal is van latere datum. Nederlands Kerkboek, bestaande uit Nieuwe Testament in de Statenvertaling, de Psalmen -met noten- van Petrus Dathenus en de Formulieren. Deze uitgave komt weinig voor, opmerkelijk is dat de collatie van de katernen beurtelings in 8 en 10 wordt geteld. Aantrekkelijke band gebonden in zwart met okerkleurig gevlamd schildpad schild met een dubbele zilveren sluiting en 4 schanierstukken. De sloten hebben strakke klamparmen terwijl de muiters, aanzetstukken en schanieren op de rug zijn opengewerkt in een uniform patroon. Het gebruik van het schild van de schildpad als bindmateriaal werd populair in de 17e en 18e eeuw en werd voornamelijk gebruikt voor het binden van religieuze geschriften, kleine Bijbels, gebedenboeken en geschenkboeken voor de gegoede burgerij. Het materiaal werd verkregen van uitheemse zeeschildpadden en was geliefd vanwege het uiterlijk, de glans, en de zeldzaamheid. Minder dan 4 procent van de luxere banden die in Nederland werden gebonden in de 18e eeuw werd in ander materiaal dan leer en perkament gebonden. Deze banden werden gezien als luxer en waren duurder. Dit geldt temeer voor schildpad aangezien de schilden niet op grote schaal werden geïmporteerd, hierdoor bleef het materiaal kostbaar en alleen toegankelijk voor de rijken.) (engraved titlepage) n.p.

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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 w … [Click Below for Full Description]

[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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]
