        The history of the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards. Done into English...by Thomas Townsend.

      Many editions of Solís's eminently readable history have come down the pike since the first appeared in Madrid in 1684. The present one is the first edition in English. Solís was an official court historian and as such had access not only to published sources but also to archival sources not previously used. Despite writing while the Baroque era flourished in Spain, his prose is remarkably unornamented or convoluted. This clarity of style when combined with the stirring and near-mythic events of the conquest of Mexico has accounted for the hundreds of editions that have come down to us.

        Parayso occidental plantado y cultivado por la liberal benefica mano de los muy catholicos y poderosos reyes de España, nuestros señores, en su magnifico Real Convento de Jesus Maria de Mexico.

      Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645–1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Late 19th-century Mexican quarter dark green morocco with mottled green paper sides; binding rubbed and abraded. Pencilling on front fly-leaf and title-page verso; top margins closely cropped occasionally costing top of letters of running heads and foliation. Worming, chiefly in margins but occasionally into the text, not costing words, sometimes repaired; first and last few leaves with old repairs to corners and margins and a bit of text restored in pen and ink. Withal, a good++ copy of important work that is not often on the market.

        Asia map - Homann.

      Asia AsiaA decorative map prepared by Prof. Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1742), who produced a number of continental and regional maps for the atlases issued by the firm of Homann Heirs in 1744. Kamchatka has been reduced to its proper size vis à vis Johann Christoph's version, while Siberia is drawn with an outline familiar to us today.The coastal waters of Japan remain a little haphazard with Hokkaido -Terra Efo, Yedso ou Yesfo- still attached to the mainland, but Sakhalin Island (Sagalien) is clearly marked. The Malay Peninsula has a very poor outline compared to earlier maps by Homann. Johor (Iohor) is located on the north-east coastline (somewhere in the vicinity of present day Kota Bahru). Tibet, which is named, bears the alternative title of "Dalai Lammae". Original handcolouring. Size: 47,6 x 55,3 cm. Price: € 625,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, Joh. Köler für Christian Weidmann, 1684. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe dreier Schauspiele, die an drei Tagen nacheinander, nämlich am 2., 3. und 4. März 1683 von Weises Schülern aufgeführt wurden. "Das bedeutendste und lustigste dieser drei Dramen ist das Lust-Spiel 'Von der Verkehrten Welt' . Die scherzhafte Idee, daß alle Verhältnisse des Lebens auf den Kopf gestellt scheinen, so daß z. B. die Frau um den Mann freit, der Herr dem Diener Rechnung ablegt, der Käufer zur gekauften Ware noch Geld erhält usw., ist gut durchgeführt und gibt Anlaß zu vielen drolligen Dialogen und Situationen ." (Seebaß). Jedes Drama hat einen eigenen Titel, die beiden letzteren auch einen eigenen Verlags- und Druckvermerk. Die Musik zu den Schauspielen stammt laut Vorwort von dem Organisten und Komponisten Johann Krieger (1658-1735), seit 1682 Musikdirektor in Zittau und von Händel sehr geschätzt. "Daß Weise seinen vielen pädagogischen Publikationen zum Trotz kein trockener Theoretiker war, bezeugen die humorvollen, aus dem Leben gegriffenen Dramen, in die er nicht selten musikalische Einlagen aufnahm" (Dünnhaupt). – Sehr selten.

      Breslau, Fellgiebel, (1684). - Sehr seltene erste Gesamtausgabe dieses Dramatikers in der Nachfolge Lohensteins. Von Hallmann (1640?-1716?) ist wenig mehr als dieser Sammelband seiner Bühnenwerke bekannt. Als dramatischer Dichter von achtzehn zum Teil ungedruckt gebliebenen Bühnenwerken – acht wurden zwischen 1662 und 1671 uraufgeführt, lediglich vier erschienen in Einzeldrucken – war Hallmann auf der Höhe seines Schaffens eine von den Zeitgenossen geschätzte Persönlichkeit. Dennoch lassen sich weder Geburts- noch Sterbedatum mit Sicherheit feststellen. "Als Gerichtspraktikant fand er Anstellung in Breslau, wo er sich in poetischen Nebenstunden einen Namen als Dramatiker und Gelegenheitsdichter schuf. Seine ausgesprochen opernhaft wirkenden Bühnenwerke wurden nachweislich wiederholt aufgeführt. Auch bei festlichen Anlässen, wie der Kaiserhochzeit 1673 oder der Breslauer Bischofsweihe 1676 war es stets H., der zur poetischen Würdigung der Feierlichkeiten herangezogen wurde. Die letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte er offenbar in größter Armut, vergebens versuchend, sich durch gelegentliche Aufführungen seiner dramatischen Werke über Wasser zu halten" (Dünnhaupt). Von einigen zeitgenössischen Dichterkollegen wurde Hallmann recht kritisch beurteilt: Gryphius sprach hochmütig von ihm, Neumeister lehnte ihn als "hölzern und ungelenk" verächtlich ab und nennt ihn pastörlich "grandiloqus usque ad vicium", doch schon Gottsched stellte ihn als "vierten tragischen Dichter der besonderen Art" neben Gryphius, Opitz und Lohenstein. Karl Wolfskehl urteilt im Katalog zur Sammlung Manheimer so: "Sein sprachlicher Ausdruck übersteigert zwar das Pathos der Zeitgenossen, überspitzt im grausen Bildgewirr die Rede und Gegenrede seiner Personen, peitscht ungelebte, 'verdrängte' Triebhaftigkeit ins trockene Fieber ihres gesuchten Wortschwalls, aber sie hat trotzdem die Kraft, die innere Situation, wenn nicht festzuhalten, so doch zu umschreiben, zu verbildlichen und es ist begreiflich, daß dieser immer im Winkel verbleibende Nicht-Arrivierte getrieben war, sich zu überschreien.

        A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF ALL THE LAWS OF VIRGINIA NOW IN FORCE. CAREFULLY COPIED FROM THE ASSEMBLY RECORDS. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED AN ALPHABETICAL TABLE

      London, 1684. [bound with:] [MANUSCRIPT TRUE COPY OF THE ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY PASSED IN 1684 AND 1685]. 1p. table in the hand of Ruffin; 27pp. manuscript giving the text of nine acts passed at session of the Assembly beginning April 1684 (copy signature of Thomas Milner, Clerk of the Assembly); 16pp. manuscript giving the text of eleven acts (copy signature of Major Robert Beverley); 1p. early 18th-century manuscript recording the births of Robert Ruffin's grandchildren (in the hand of his son, Robert Ruffin the younger). Very good. Folio. Expertly bound to style in period gilt calf, spine gilt with raised bands, morocco label. Very good. Provenance: Robert Ruffin (c. 1646-1693, signature on title, dated 1687/8); Robert Ruffin (1681-1720, manuscript birth record); Daniel Call (early signature); John MacNair (signature on title, "New Orleans Oct 23 '52). The second published collection of the statutes of Virginia, covering the acts passed by the General Assembly between 1662 and 1682, including seminal material relating to slavery and Bacon's Rebellion: this copy with contemporary manuscript acts passed at 1684-85 sessions and with original provenance to a Virginia landowner and sheriff from Surry County. The genesis of the printing of these laws is recounted by Hall in THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK IN AMERICA, vol. I: "By the early 1680s the situation was becoming critical once again in Virginia. For reasons unknown, in the years since 1662 the assembly contented itself with scribal [i.e. manuscript] publication. That system yielded an interesting set of artifacts in the wake of Bacon's Rebellion, for the reformist legislation enacted by the assembly that met in June 1676 was subsequently repealed [see pp.197-199 of the present volume], obliging county clerks to eliminate the offending pages from their cache of manuscripts. The initiative to resume the technology of printing came from a first generation planter-merchant and sometime member of the House of Burgesses, John Buckner, who imported a press from Virginia along with an experienced printer William Nuthead, to run it. Nuthead set to work in late 1682 printing the session laws from the assembly that met in 1680, only to encounter the wrath of Governor Culpeper and the council, who in February 1683, having reviewed the first two sheets to pass the press, halted the process on the grounds that Buckner the printer had not been duly licensed. [Nuthead subsequently left Virginia with his press for Maryland]....In the event it was an unauthorized edition that gave Virginians their second statute book....The intermediary was John Purvis, a London-based ship captain and merchant who often came to Virginia; laying hands on a manuscript compilation, Purvis took it back to London to be printed and returned with copies, some of which contained additional blank pages [as the present example]. In April 1684 the Virginia government repudiated the book on the grounds that it was published without License and directed county courts not to use it. Even so...the book seems to have passed into general use, for several of the surviving copies [including the present] bear handwritten notations indicating the repeal or altering of laws. Of more importance, some owners used these books to record new session laws on blank pages bound in with the printed text for this purpose [as in this copy]." Besides the many laws about tobacco, trade, duties, courts, roads, agriculture, etc., two categories of laws found within this volume bear specific mention: those related to Bacon's Rebellion and those concerning slavery. Earlier historians of presented Bacon's Rebellion during 1676 as a fore-shadowing of 1776, with Bacon cast as a proto-Revolutionary who was attempting to overthrow an oppressive government appointed by the crown. Modern scholarship has recast those events as a struggle between the colonists and Native Americans of the region, with a significant sub-text of divisions between small planters and the established major planter elite. The effects of Bacon's Rebellion were far- reaching and are credited with creating changing the nature of the British colonial world in the South. It elevated the status of the wealthy Virginia gentry; numerous laws reference the tumultuous events of 1676. In particular these impose restrictive laws on slaves, many borne out of fear of another uprising. These laws also encouraged the importation of more slaves into the workforce. Copies of the Purvis laws of 1684, the second collected edition of Virginia laws, are very rare, with no other example on the market in the last quarter century. It is generally considered the real beginning of Virginia law, although there was a earlier 1662 collection; writing to William Hening in 1807 regarding his famed collection of the laws of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson noted that his printed laws began with Purvis. Wing records two copies, at the Library of Congress (Thomas Jefferson's copy) and John Carter Brown Library. Additional copies are located at Harvard (lacking the title), University of Virginia (lacks all before p.51), Colonial Williamsburg, College of William & Mary (three copies, one imperfect), University of Michigan Law Library (lacking 10 leaves), Virginia Historical Society, Washington & Lee University (defective), Johns Hopkins, University of Minnesota Law Library (lacking first 10pp.), University of Oxford and the British Library. This example of the COMPLETE COLLECTION with original provenance to Robert Ruffin, of Richneck plantation, who served as the Sheriff of Surry County in 1684, as well as Justice of the Peace from 1680. As intended by Purvis, this copy has contemporary manuscript true copies of the session laws for April 1684 (Hening III:9-27) and October 1685 (Hening III:28-39). Following Purvis' publication of the laws in 1684, the acts of Assembly remained in manuscript until the revisal of 1733. As most of the acts from these sessions had been repealed or revised by that time, no printing of these session laws occurred until Hening in 1823, who published the acts from three manuscript sources (the Northumberland County archives, and two belonging to Thomas Jefferson). The present manuscript conforms closely to the Northumberland County manuscript, with the October 1685 session attested to by Robert Beverley before his removal as clerk. A critically important and very rare edition of the most important early collection of Virginia laws, with much detail on Bacon's Rebellion and the evolution of early colonial Virginia.

        Parayso occidental plantado y cultivado por la liberal benefica mano de los muy catholicos y poderosos reyes de España, nuestros señores, en su magnifico Real Convento de Jesus Maria de Mexico.

      Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645?-1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Late 19th-century Mexican quarter dark green morocco with mottled green paper sides; binding rubbed and abraded. Pencilling on front fly-leaf and title-page verso; top margins closely cropped occasionally costing top of letters of running heads and foliation. Worming, chiefly in margins but occasionally into the text, not costing words, sometimes repaired; first and last few leaves with old repairs to corners and margins and a bit of text restored in pen and ink. Withal, a good++ copy of important work that is not often on the market.

        De l'état de l'homme apres le peche et de sa prédestination au salut. Où l'on examine les sentiments communs et où l'on explique ce que l'Ecriture Sainte nous en dit. [Text Französisch].

      Chez Henry Desbordes, Amsterdam 1684 - 1684. 7 Blatt, 367 Seiten. Neueres Ganzleder mit Rückenschild, vier falschen Bünden und Blindprägung. (gering kratzspurig, innen am oberen Schnitt teils etwas knapp beschnitten ohne Textverlust, nur sehr wenig gebräunt oder braunfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten). Le Cène (um 1647 - 1703) war ein französischer Theologe von hugenottischer Herkunft, der in den Niederlanden und in England wirkte. Studiert hatte er in Sedan, Genf und Saumur, 1672 wurde er in Caen protestantisch ordiniert. Er wirkte in Honfleur und Charenton, bis er nach dem Widerruf des Ediktes von Nantes nach Den Haag floh. Die letzten Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in England, wo er auch starb. Er war radikaler Rationalist, der den orthodoxen Theologen der reformierten Kirche entgegentrat. Le Cène ging von der Überlegenheit der menschlichen Vernunft aus und las aus der Bibel die Grösse des Menschen heraus, was im Gegensatz zur orthodoxen Lesart stand, die die Verdorbenheit des Menschen betonte. Seine rationalistische Kritik mündete wie bei Sozzini in eine ethische Akzentuierung des Christentums - teils frei zitiert nach Erich Haase, "Einführung in die Literatur des Refuge", 1959. Der Einband ist signiert "Bagguley", das ist George Thomas Bagguley (1860 - nach 1934), tätig in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. 200 Gramm. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Afteykeninge van de Stadt Philadelphia in de Provinstie van Penn-Sylvania in Americae na de Copie tot London

      Amsterdam: Jacob Claus, 1684. Engraved folding map. Sheet size: 10 x 13 3/4 inches. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. Rare, Dutch edition of Holme's plan of Philadelphia, and the first printed map to "depict an English colonial North American town" (Burden) "...[A] green country town, which will never be burnt, and always be wholesome." These words, written by William Penn, were part of his directive to his commissioners and Surveyor-General, Captain Thomas Holme, and they were the basis of the plan they laid out for the city to be, Philadelphia, in 1682. Among the earliest examples of city planning, William Penn's square grid of the city was surveyed and drafted in Philadelphia. Intended to reflect and incite orderliness and to ease the dividing of lots, the plan was also projected to thwart the destruction of fires by laying wide streets at right angles and even discourage the spread of contagious disease. (Penn had witnessed the Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Holme's engraved plan was first published as the frontispiece to Penn's promotional tract, " A Letter to the Committee of the Free Society of Traders in London" in 1683. Benjamin Furly, a Quaker trader in Rotterdam and owner of 4,000 acres in Pennsylvania, represented Penn's interests on the continent. Doubtless it was through him that a Dutch edition of Penn's letter promoting his colony was promptly printed in Amsterdam. With the reprinting of the letter came a new engraved plan of the Philadelphia city grid prepared from Thomas Holme's "Portraiture". The new plan was by no means an exact copy of the original engraved in London. It contained many improvements, and was a more finished work throughout (Snyder, COI). It is generally assumed that the Dutch version of Holme's plan is more rare due to the smaller circulation of the promotional tract. Referring to Holme's plan, Burden writes, "The printed map is the first to depict an English colonial North American town and is of considerable importance." Set where the Schuykill and Delaware Rivers are roughly parallel, Philadelphia was designed according to rather humane ideals, and not simply to maximize profits. Large blocks and wide streets in an easily navigated grid gave individuals a sense of freedom and community, freedom from the tension induced by overcrowding. There was a large central square intended to serve as the religious and governmental heart of the city, and large accessible parks. The framework of the plan allowed for subdivision and growth. Philadelphia was the fastest growing city in Colonial America in the 18th century. Thomas Holme was an Englishman, who fought in Ireland under Cromwell and settling there, joined the Society of Friends. A long friendship with William Penn led to his being appointed Surveyor- General of Pennsylvania.

        Novi Belgii Novæque Angliæ nec non Pennsylvaniæ et partis Virginiæ tabula multis in locis emendata

      [Amsterdam, 1684. Engraved map. Minor expert repairs. A fine example of the second state of Danckerts' important map. This important map is derived from the Visscher map of about 1655, which is itself drawn from the Janssonius map of 1651. Philip Burden lists three states of this map: the first which was probably published in about 1673 and is easily recognized as it does not include Philadelphia and there is no mention of Pennsylvania in the title. Burden writes of the present second state: "Following the founding of Philadelphia a revised state was produced ... Danckerts updated the map in a significant manner. The Delaware River is completely revised so that it no longer connects with the Hudson River ... Pennsylvania is named, its boundary is marked, and many largely domestic animals are engraved within the region. Recognition of the English hold over New Amsterdam is seen in the addition to the title of the view of [the words] Nieuw Yorck, eetÿs Genaemt above. ... Along with the addition to the view title ... the main [title] ... has had [the words] Pennsylvaniæ, et partis added as the third line." (Burden, II pp.39-40).

        L'Asie/reveue et augmentée

      Paris, 1684. Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts. This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map. Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed. The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible. This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death. Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).

        Nouvelles de la République des Lettres.

      - Amsterdam, Henry Desbordes, Henry Desbordes & Daniel Pain et Pierre Mortier, 1684-1710. Ensemble de 50 volumes in-12, plein vélin rigide de l’époque (reliures uniformes). Exceptionnel ensemble complet des années 1685 à 1710 à l'exception des mois août à décembre 1684 et des années 1716 à 1718. Les livraisons ont été interrompues d'avril 1689 à janvier 1699. Comprend de nombreuses d'illustrations et planches hors-texte dont certaines dépliantes. Bien qu'entièrement rédigées en français, les ‘Nouvelles de la république des lettres’ étaient publiées chaque mois à Amsterdam pour contourner la censure. L'éditeur fut Henry Desbordes, installé Kalver Straat de 1684 à 1710. Le périodique devint rapidement le centre de la vie intellectuelle européenne, auquel contribuèrent l’élite intellectuelle de l'époque, « de Leibniz à Locke, de Nicole à Bossuet, d'Abbadie à R. Simon et au père Hardouin, de La Hire à Tournefort, de Bochart à Vossius, de G. Leti à Varillas, de Boileau à La Bruyère » (Sgard). "Le corpus des articles qui visent un public étendu au-delà du cercle des savants, fournit une information très riche sur la production livresque en Europe, l’intensité des questions religieuses qui atteint son paroxysme avec la révocation de l’Édit de Nantes, le poids énorme des controverses doctrinales qui traversent toutes les disciplines. Bayle écrit en médiateur culturel, soucieux d’impartialité et tire la leçon de la méthode de Descartes pour débusquer l’erreur" (R. Monnier, H. BOST, ‘Pierre Bayle historien, critique et moraliste’, A.H.R.F., 349|2007, 203-205. (Bourgeois André, n°1952. Hatin, 33. Sgard, 'Dict. des Journaux', n°1016). Etiquettes, cachets et cotes de bibliothèque. Très bon exemplaire, ensemble très bien relié en vélin rigide de l’époque, très frais. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Apollonius Cattus, oder Kern der gantzen Geometriae in drey Theil. [Bericht zu M. Jobsten Burgi seligen Geometrischen Triangular Instruments]

      1684 - 3 parties en 1 volume in-4, Marburg, Joh. Heinrich Stock [pour Johann Ingebrand à Cassel], 1684, 1684, , 3 parties en 1 volume in-4, frontispice sur cuivre, [14]-102-61-[8]-22 pages, 52 planches, basane granitée ancienne, dos orné à la grotesque, roulette sur les coupes, Première mise en recueil des importants travaux de mathématiques et d'instrumentation topographique de Benjamin Bramer, élève et beau-frère de Jost Bürgi, comprenant trois parties parues séparément, à l'origine, en en 1634, 1647 et 1648. La troisième partie décrit le "Geometrische Triangular Instrument" de Bürgi, instrument conçu dans les années 1590 et qui exploitait de manière novatrice la technique de la triangulation. L'illustration de l'ouvrage comprend le retirage du beau portrait-frontispice allégorique de Bürgi, entouré des instruments scientifiques de sa conception, ainsi que plusieurs bois dans le texte et le retirage des planches sur cuivre, repliées pour la plupart ; les 21 planches qui ornent la troisième partie, sont courtes de marges. Texte allemand, en lettres gothiques. DSB II, 419. Poggendorff I, 274. Architecte allemand, Benjamin Bramer était le beau-frère et l'élève du célèbre constructeur d'instruments scientifiques Jost Bürgi (1552-1632), pionnier dans l'élaboration d'instruments nouveaux d'arpentage, d'astronomie et de mesure du temps : il accompagna son maître à Prague en 1603 et fut nommé en 1612 architecte de la ville de Marburg par le Landgrave de Hesse Moritz. Ce recueil est particulièrement important pour sa description de l'instrument de Bürgi, ainsi conçu : "Comme [les combinaisons de règles graduées] étaient de conception assez simples, [elles] ont été exécutées avec de nombreuses variantes. Pour faire pressentir leur filiation, rappelons que Copernic utilisait déjà un assemblage de trois règles graduées, deux d'entre elles étant articulées aux extrémités de la troisième, placée verticalement ; il était désigné sous le nom de triquetrum ou instrument des trois règles. On en retrouve un semblable dans Oronce Finé [.]. Le même principe a été repris vers la fin du XVIe siècle, et probablement de façon indépendante, par Danfrie et par Jost Bürgi. Il existe très peu de différence entre le trigomètre de Danfrie et l'instrument triangulaire de Bürgi. Le premier est muni de rapporteurs à chacune de ses articulations tandis que le second n'en est pas pourvu ; l'instrument de Burgi porte une boussole sur l'une de ses branches. Sur les deux instruments, l'une des règles latérales se déplace par une coulisse sur la règle de base : les trois règles sont divisées en partie égales et les opérations de mesure sont identiques. Trigomètre et instrument triangulaire se montent sur un trépied à rotule, ce qui permet le relevé d'angles verticaux et horizontaux" (Daumas, les instruments scientifiques aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, pages 31-32). Reliure habilement restaurée. Impression sur papier allemand ; ce dernier présente les altérations propres à sa qualité d'origine, soit d'importantes brunissures. Petites taches d'encre anciennes sur une page. Planches de la troisième partie courtes de marge. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cajus Valerius Catullus et in eum Isaaci Vossii observationes

      Isaacum Littleburii, 1684, Hardcover (Full Leather), Book Condition: Good Condition. This is the first edition published, though not printed in England. Vossi's commentary was highly regarded and the text he presents here, in Latin, of Catullus's poetry is not censored. Complete with index and errata leaf at the back. This copy is bound in contemporary leather with decorated spine. The leather is somewhat scuffed and bumped and the decoration and label are worn. Nonetheless it presents rather well. Size: Quarto.
