Brady was the Physician in Ordinary to Kings Charles II and James II, Regius Professor of Physic at Cambridge University and the Keeper of Records in the Tower of London. While serving in this latter position he became interested in the documents contained in the tower, which inspired the works collected here. The first and third tracts and the compilation of early English legal terms were originally published in 1681. As Kennedy, notes, Brady's detailed 68-page glossary was the first important dictionary since Blount's Nomo-Lexicon (1670). (Spelman's Glossarium followed in 1687.)

      Desbordes - Pain - Mortier 1684-1718, Amsterdam - Legature coeve in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro al ds. Carte di guardia e tagli marmorizzati in coloritura omogenea. Alcuni volumi recano al piatto anteriore la scritta in oro M. De Prangins . Ottime condizioni generali, salvo poche cuffie danneggiate. Interni freschi (carte ingiallite in tre voll.) e ben conservati (solo il Tomo I del 1704 ha uno strappo al frontespizio). Tutto il pubblicato (per lo più in prima o seconda edizione): insieme ai volumi curati da Bayle (marzo 1684-febbraio 1687), le continuazioni - intervallate da anni in cui la pubblicazione della rivista venne sospesa - di Daniel de Larroque e Jean Le Clerc (marzo-agosto 1687), Jean Barrin (settembre 1687-aprile 1689), Jacques Bernard (gennaio 1699-dicembre 1710, gennaio 1716-aprile 1718), Jean Le Clerc (maggio-giugno 1718). Si tratta del primo periodico che si prefisse l obiettivo di analizzare e segnalare al Pubblico (in precedenza lo scambio di informazioni e di valutazioni si svolgeva nella stretta cerchia degli intellettuali) le edizioni contemporanee pubblicate in Europa (Francia e Olanda soprattutto, ma anche Inghilterra, Svezia, Germania, Italia, ecc.) riguardanti gli argomenti più interessanti nel mondo pre-illuministico come la filosofia cartesiana, le religioni (con molteplici note sulla religione cattolica e protestante, ma anche con segnalazioni di studi sulla chiesa anglicana, sulla storia e gli usi degli ebrei, ecc.), i viaggi, le invenzioni ed i progressi delle scienze fisiche e matematiche e della medicina, e - sia pure in minor misura - le opere storiche e letterarie. Opera completa (descrizione conforme in B.N.F.) molto rara, quasi introvabile nel mercato antiquario, di questo eccezionale periodico (pubblicato in lingua francese in Olanda per sfuggire alla censura presente in Francia) che - come testimoniano le ripetute edizioni - ebbe ungrande successo in ambito europeo. 12mo (cm. 13,8), 66 Voll., ciascuno di circa 400 pp. con disegni n.t. e tavv. f.t.

        MID-ATLANTIC STATES & NEW ENGLAND: Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae Nec Non partis Virginiae Tabula multis in locis emendata.

      - A fine example of Nicholas Visscher’s decorative archetype map of the ‘New Netherlands’, embracing the Mid-Atlantic region and New England. This sumptuous work of Dutch Baroque cartography depicts America’s Atlantic Seaboard from Virginia up to Maine. While this example is updated to 1684, the map evokes the era of ‘Nieuw Nederland’ the colony operated in the Mid-Atlantic region by the Dutch West India Company (the WIC) from 1613 to 1664, centred on ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City). The eminent historian Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes described Visscher’s map as giving "the best and most complete representation that we have of New Netherland during the Dutch period; it may correctly be described as a scientific map, in the making of which advantage was taken of all the material available". (Stokes, Iconography, vol. II, p. 118) The first edition of the map was made in 1655, when the Dutch held dominance over the Mid-Atlantic region, and were in the process of expelling the Swedes, who had established a small colony near the mouth of the Delaware River. In 1664, the English, who had already established colonies in Chesapeake Bay and New England, which geographically ‘sandwiched’ the New Netherlands, conquered New Amsterdam and with it all of Dutch North America. While the Dutch briefly regained control of New York in 1673, they soon left for good, ensuring that the New Netherlands would only live on in the realm of nostalgia. Curiously, in spite of the Dutch bias of the map, an example of the first edition of 1655 was entered as evidence in the long running boundary dispute between the English colonies of Lord Baltimore’s Maryland and William Penn’s Pennsylvania. The map is dominated by Dutch nomenclature, as much of the Mid-Atlantic is named ‘Nova Belgica sive Nieuw Nederlandt’. New York Harbor is designated as the ‘Groote Rivier’ (the Great Rivier), the Hudson River is the ‘Noort Rivier’, the Delware River is the ‘Zuydt Rivier’, while the Catskills as the ‘t’ Landt van Kats Kill’, Long Island is ‘t’ Lange Eylandt’, Cape Cod is labeled ‘Nieuw Hollandt’, Martha’s Vineyard is ‘Texel’ or ‘Elizabets Eylandt’ and Nantucket is ‘Vlielant’ (the latter two places being names after parts of the Frisian Island chain in the Netherlands). However, as the preset edition of map was issued after the fall of the Dutch hegemony, various English names have crept in, including’ ‘Nieuw Jorck’ (New York), ‘Nieu Iarsey’ (New Jersey) ‘Pensylvania’, ‘Niew Englandt’ (New England) and Virginia. Numerous Native American villages and place names are labeled, including ‘Conittecock’, the origin of the name Connecticut. The map features many early Dutch and Swedish settlements, including ‘Nieuw Amsterdam’ (New York City, founded 1624), ‘t’ Fort Orangie’ (Albany, New York, founded 1617), ‘Beukelen’ (Brooklyn), ‘t’ Fort de Goede hoop’ (Harford, Connecticut, founded 1623); ‘t Fort Christina’ (the main Swedish settlement in America from 1638 to 1655, on the site of present day Wilmington, Delaware), ‘Fort Nassau’ (Gloucester City, New Jersey, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia). Several English settlements rare also depicted, including ‘James Towne’ (Viginia, founded in 1607), ‘Neu Pleymout’ (Plymouth, Massachusetts, founded in 1620) ‘Stamfort’ and ‘Milfort’ (Stamford and Milford, Connecticut). Most importantly, the present edition of the map labels Philadelphia, a very early appearance for the ‘City of Brotherly Love’, which was only founded by William Penn the year before this map was printed. One of the most magnificent features of the map is the fine profile view of New Amsterdam that appears in the lower right, being amongst the earliest obtainable views of New York City. Stokes asserted that the view is based on a sketch made sometime between 1651 and 1653, prior to the construction of the wall which ran among the northern perimeter of New Amsterdam, today commemorated by New York’s Wall Street. The map is further adorned with a bird’s eye view of t

      Paris, 1684. 12mo. Bound to style in gilt calf, spine elaborately gilt. Very good. Lacks the map. A reissue of the first edition, published the previous year, with the original sheets but a new titlepage, of the first book by the famous Recollet missionary and explorer, Father Louis Hennepin, and a foundation work of Canadiana and Americana, particularly for the Great Lakes region. Unlike some of Hennepin's later works, the truthfulness of his narrative herein is accepted by historians. "In 1684 sheets of this 1683 edition were slightly altered in two issues: the first merely adding a numeral I to the date; the second substituting a new titlepage with 1684 date and Auroy's imprint" - Howes. This copy is the latter, with the new titlepage. Hennepin accompanied the great French explorer, the Sieur de la Salle, on his 1678-79 expedition from Fort Frontenac to Niagara, then on to the Illinois country where Hennepin was directed to explore further on his own. He ultimately ascended the Mississippi River as far as the Falls of St. Anthony, near where he was captured by the Sioux and held for some time before being released. This book is the narrative of all these adventures and is notable for its many "firsts": the first use of the name "Louisiana," the first good account of the Illinois country and upper Mississippi, the first detailed account of the Sioux, and the first navigation of the Great Lakes. It also includes an account of Hennepin's captivity among the Sioux. Few works in the history of American exploration are of greater importance. An important and foundational work.

        Zwey nachdänkliche Traum-Gesichte, von dess Türcken Untergang. Zweifels ohn von göttlicher Direction. Herauss gelassen von mehrmals zugetroffen erfahrnem Designante Somniatore.

      [Ulm, Matthäus Wagner, 1684]. - 4to. (2), "31" (= 29), (1) pp. With engraved frontispiece (an allegory of the 1683 Ottoman defeat) and headpieces. Side-stitched in modern wrappers, green edges. Rare pamphlet describing two dreams supposedly predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire. It was written by the German composer and novelist Daniel Speer (1636-1707) under the pseudonym "Designante Somniatore" and opens with some remarks on prophetic dreams with reference to the Old Testament. Speer's pamphlet, written immediately after the 1683 Battle of Vienna, expresses a deep-seated fear of the Ottoman Empire, which, thrusting into the heart of Europe, seemed a serious threat to Christianity. With manuscript annotation on the back of the frontispiece by "Joannes Jacobus Hausmohr", 1685, and contemporary ownership of the Salzburg Theological Seminary ("Ex libris Seminarij Salisb.") on title page.

        SATYRAE [together with] SATYRARUM

      Henricum Wetstenium, Amstelaedami (Amsterdam) 1684 - Thick 8vo, This is a new edition ("Editio Nova"), with commentaries, a life of Juvenal, and a bibliography of various editions. Decimus Junius Juvenalis, known in English as Juvenal, was a Roman poet (1st to 2nd century AD), who wrote a series of poems which, together, are called the "Satires" ("Satyrae"). He wrote at least 16 poems in dactylic hexameter form, which were divided between five books, and which covered many, if not most, aspects of life in pagan Rome. There is no complete list of Juvenal's manuscripts but at least 500 medieval copies are known to exist. This copy is bound in vellum with an eleborate device embossed in gilt on the front board. As was the practice then, the spine is hand-lettered with the title, year, and showing was appears to be a Roman soldier, flanked by two maidens in front of whom kneels a satyr. All 16 of the poems are present, followed by a comprehensive index. The text encompasses 525 pages, but the index is unpaginated. Bound-in after this is the "Satyrarum" (Satirarum) of the 1st century AD Roman satiric poet Auli Persii Flacci (Aulus Persius Flaccus); in six books of 112 pages with an unpaginated index at end. Text throughout is in Latin. All pages clean, althought there is some rippling. One small burn hole (?) to front cover, usual staining to vellum, althought less than might otherwise be expected. Binding is good, although front hinge starting. Overall, a good, to good plus, copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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 appo

        Les Provinciales ou Lettres escrittes par Louis de Montalte, A un Provincial de ses amis & aux RR. PP. Jesuites, sur la Morale & la Politique de ces Peres: Traduites en Latin par Guillaume Wendrock, Theologien de Saltzbourg. En Espagnol par le Sr. Gratien Cordero, de Burgos. Et en Italien par le Sr. Cosimo Brunetti, Gentil-Homme Florentin.

      Köln, Balthasar Winfelt, 1684 - 8°, 20 Bl., 613 S., OPerg. m. handschriftl. Rückentitel., Das Werk erschien anonym in Bruxelles bei E.-H. Fricx. - Brunet IV, 396. Tchemerzine IX, 70. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe der "Lettres", neben dem französischen Originaltext zum ersten Mal die lateinische, spanische u. italienische Übersetzung in vier Kolumnen enthaltend. -Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) verfasste 1656/57 eine Serie anonymer satirisch-polemischer Broschüren. Diese waren sehr erfolgreich und wurden 1657 in Holland unter dem Titel «Provinciales, ou Lettres de Louis de Montalte à un provincial de ses amis et aux R. R. PP. Jésuites sur la morale et la politique de ces pères» als Buch gedruckt. Es sind achtzehn Briefe eines fiktiven Paris-Reisenden namens Montalte, von denen die ersten zehn an einen fiktiven Freund in der heimatlichen Provinz gerichtet sind, die nächsten sechs an die Pariser Jesuitenpatres insgesamt und die letzten beiden speziell an den Beichtvater des Königs. In diesen Briefen beschreibt Montalte zunächst in der Rolle eines theologisch unbeschlagenen und naiven jungen Adeligen, wie Jesuiten ihm altklug und herablassend ihre Theologie erklären; später, nachdem er quasi seine Lektion gelernt hat, beginnt er mit ihnen zu diskutieren und so scharfsinnig wie witzig ihre Lehren ad absurdum zu führen. Pascal persiflierte und attackierte so die zwar gewissermaßen verbraucherfreundliche, aber tendenziell opportunistische und oft spitzfindige Theologie ? die berühmte Kasuistik ? der Jesuiten und entlarvte ihren sehr weltlichen Machthunger. Die «Lettres provinciales» hatten, obwohl sie nach der Nr. 5 verboten wurden, bei Erscheinen der Buchausgabe auf den Index kamen und 1660 sogar vom Henker verbrannt wurden, großen und langandauernden Erfolg und bedeuteten längerfristig den Anfang vom Ende der Allmacht der Jesuiten, zumindest in Frankreich. Wegen ihrer Klarheit und Präzision gelten sie als ein Meisterwerk der französischen Prosa, das ihrem Autor einen Platz unter den Klassikern der französischen Literaturgeschichte verschaffte. 1200 gr.

Taches d'encre des mentions manuscrites de la page de titre portant atteinte aux deux feuillets suivants. Quelques très pâles mouillures en marge haute du volume.  L'Homme de cour est un livre fondamental en cette fin du XVIIe siècle, et qui eut un écho retentissant dans toute l'Europe. D'une certaine façon, c'est une réaction contre le puritanisme, l'austérité et l'esprit des vanités propres au XVIIe siècle. Le livre réhabilite l'apparence comme coalescente de l'essence et justifie le mensonge ou la dissimulation par l'habileté politique et la bienséance, faisant du parfait homme de cour, un modèle insurpassé de "l'honnête homme". "L'apparence peut même, le cas échéant, suppléer le défaut de substance". L'oeuvre consiste en un recueil de 300 maximes dont le modèle caché est le roi Ferdinand II d'Aragon, dit "le Catholique", on y décèle une volonté et une habileté stylistique cherchant à condenser le maximum de sens dans le formule la plus brève et la plus concise possible. Cet homme de cour non seulement ressucite l'esprit chevaleresque mais fournira un modèle durable de perfection pour l'homme en société, pour le gentilhomme ou le dandy.

        D. Junii Juvenalis & Auli Persii Flacci Satyrae. Cum veteris scholiastae & Variorum Commentariis. Editio nova. Qua quid praestitum sit, praefatio ad Lectorem docebit. Amstelaedami Apud Henricum Wetstenium. MDCLXXXIV (Amsterdam, Heinrich Wetstein 1684).

      Amsterdam, Wetstein 1684.. 1 Blatt (Titel); 21 Blätter (der gest. Frontispiz fehlt, a3 - c8); 525 Seiten [das erste Index-Blatt auf der unpaginierten Seite 526, also S. 525 verso, dadurch erklären sich die unterschiedlichen Kollationen ! CS]; 46 Blätter (Index); 1 (weißes) Blatt; 112 Seiten; 9 Blätter (Index). Der breitrandige, völlig unbeschnittene Buchblock (21 x 12 cm) wurde in einen auf dem Rücken goldgeprägten Halpergamentband des 18. Jahrhunderts gebunden und mit einem grünen, ebenfalls goldgeprägten Titelrückenschild versehen. Die Deckel mit Marmorpapier bezogen.(22 x 14 cm) 8°.. Schöner und vollständiger als die Elzevier-Ausgabe ! (Brunet a.a.O.) Dibdin II, 154 ("... the edition of 1684, in fine condition, is scarce and sells high. The 'Index Verborum' to Persius, according to Wetsten, the printer, is new, and occupies the last eighteen pages of the book."). Schweiger II, 511 ("Nicht haeufig."). Brunet III, 631 ("Edition plus belle et plus complete que la precedente [celle des Elzevier ! CS]"). Graesse III, 520 ("Dans cette ed. on a ajoute les variantes d'un man. de Bale et des notes de Graeve.") Der Einband mit leichten Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, Kanten und Ecken bestoßen, Rückenschild seitlich außerhalb der Titelprägung stärker berieben. Es scheint weitere Exemplare ohne ein Frontispiz zu geben, z.B. das der University of Michigan, wie unser Exemplar ohne, das aus Princeton mit, eine Kopie davon liegt lose bei. Er wurde nicht herausgetrennt sondern lag wohl schon beim Binden der unbeschnittenen Broschur oder der Rohbögen nicht vor. Der Auftraggeber des neuen, oder ersten (?) Einbandes identifiziert sich durch den Tinten-Abklatsch seines wohl eigenhändigen Eintrages auf dem Titelblatt auf das gegenüberliegende neue Vorsatzblatt: "Ex Libr. Georgii Bonelli L.P.~". Darunter ein wohl späterer, teils getilgter Stempel. Im Text vereinzelte Unterstreichungen und Randbermerkungen von alter Hand. Papierbedingt lagenweise etwas stockfleckig. Mit einer ausführlichen gedruckten Widmung Wetsteins für Coenraad van Beuningen (* 1622 - 1693 + Amsterdam), gefolgt von einem Hinweis des Druckers an die Leser. Anschließend ein Vorwort des Herausgebers Schrevel, sowie u.a. einer Dissertation des Nicolaus Rigaltus über die Satiren des Juvenal. Beide Textausgaben durch Register jeweils am Schluß erschlossen.

Koenraad bezocht de latijnsche school in zijn geboortestad, studeerde en promoveerde vervolgens te Leiden in de rechten. Reeds als student toonde hij groote belangstelling in de wijsbegeerte en de letteren en bleek hij geneigd tot een stille levenswijze; groote sympathie gevoelde hij voor de secte der Collegianten, wier bijeenkomsten te Rijnsburg hij placht te bezoeken. Toch trad hij na de voltooiing zijner studien in het openbare leven. Eerst woonde hij, in 1642, korten tijd te Parijs als secretaris van Hugo de Groot. Reeds het volgend jaar werd hij, op een-entwintigjarigen leeftijd, in diezelfde functie te Amsterdam geroepen. Na zeven jaar echter legde hij dit ambt neer om zich ambteloos te Rijnsburg te vestigen. Hier leefde hij gedurende een jaar zeer eenvoudig in den kring der meest 'nederige' Collegianten en bezocht hij de vergaderingen ten huize van den bakker Oudaen, vader van den dichter. Tegen de beginselen der Collegianten in, nam hij echter na dit jaar het ambt aan van pensionaris der stad Amsterdam. In deze functie kreeg hij de gelegenheid om ook in de Staten van Holland zijn groote bekwaamheid en kennis te toonen. Zijn talenten maakten hem spoedig tot een gezocht vertegenwoordiger van zijn stad en van de Republiek. Reeds dadelijk na zijn benoeming werd hij met het uitnoodigen der Staten van Friesland ter Groote Vergadering belast; vervolgens werd hij naar Zeeland gezonden om te trachten het aldaar genomen besluit tot het aanstellen van een kapitein-generaal te doen uitstellen. Toen er een gezant naar Zweden noodig was om een verdrag van vriendschap tot stand te brengen, werd van Beuningen om zijn groote algemeene ontwikkeling een geschikt vertegenwoordiger bij de geleerde koningin Christina geoordeeld. Hij keerde echter na twee jaar onverrichter zake terug, daar Zweden het voorstel van de hand wees. In 1656 ging hij opnieuw naar het Noorden, maar ditmaal naar Denemarken, dat inmiddels in oorlog verkeerde met Zweden, waar Karel X aan de regeering gekomen was; bij deze gelegenheid viel hij bijna in handen van den Kopenhagen belegerenden zweedschen koning. Toen van Beuningen in 1660 het pensionarisambt vrijwillig neerlegde, bleef hij lid van de Amsterdamsche vroedschap, op welk lichaam hij grooten invloed uitoefende. Nog in hetzelfde jaar werd hij opnieuw met een gezantschap belast, nu naar Parijs om daar (met Joan van Gent en Justus de Huybert) te trachten een verdrag van vrede en koophandel te sluiten, welk verdrag in 1662 geteekend werd. In 1664 was hij opnieuw in Frankrijk om den Koning om bijstand te ...

        Nova methodus pro maximis et minimis, itemque tangentibus, quae nec fractas nec irrationales quantitates moratur et singulare pro illis calculi genus [AND] De geometria recondita et analysi indivisibilium atque infinitorum.

      . Leipzig, Christopher Gunther for J. Grossium [and J. F. Gletitschium], 1684-1686. In two volumes. Small 4to. [19,7 x 15,3 cm]. pp. 467-473 and one plate (Tab. XII) for the first paper; pp. 192 [recte 292]-300 for the second paper (Geometria recondita). Contemporary uniform half vellum over boards and full vellum with title written in contemporary hand on the spines.l The most important original papers, on differential calculus, and on integral calculus, by one of the greatest mathematicians ever, Gottfried Wilhelm (von) Leibniz (1646-1716). The 1684 volume with Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus is in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is known that two distinct issues exist, and this is an unrecorded third, but certainly not latest. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known now as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but is obviously now recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state. However, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. What we have here thus, is yet another issue of the work and it is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, not unthinkable that this is the true first issue, since there would be little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate if it was issued at a later date. A very good copy in unusually crisp and clean condition, and in an attractive original binding. In the 1686 volume Leibniz introduces his important integral calculus in "De geometria recondita et analysis indivisibilium atque infinitorum". The 1686 volume is bound with the 1687 volume, with contributions from other renowned scientists and mathematicians, such as Jacob Bernouilli; the 1686 volume also contains contributions by Leibniz, viz.: Brevis demonstratio erroris memorabilis Cartesii & aliorum circa legem naturae, secundum quam volunt a Deo eandem semper quantitatem motus conservari; qua & in re mechanica abutuntur. [pp. 161-163] [AND] Meditatio nova de natura Anguli contactus & osculi, horumque usu in practica mathesi, ad figuras faciliores succedaneas difficilioribus Substituendas. [pp. 289-292], and in the 1684 volume also the following: De dimensionibus figurarum inveniendis. [pp. 233-236]; Demonstrationes novae de resistentia. [pp. 319-325]; Meditationes De Cognitione, Veritate, & Ideis. [pp. 537-542]; Additio ad shedam in actis proxime antecedentis Maji pag. 233 editam. De dimensionibus curvilineorum. [pp. 585-587]. Old unobtrusive circular library stamp on verso of title pages, removed paste on inner cover. Some light uniform age toning as usual for this sort of paper and a few pages browned. In the 1686-1687 volume a red wine stain coveris a few pages of text, but not the Leibniz paper, which is clean. Overall this is a very good set in an unusual crisp and clean condition and in attractive original bindings.
