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wake of Bacon's Rebellion, for the reformist legislation enacted by the assembly that met in June 1676 was subsequently repealed [see pp.197-199 of the present volume], obliging county clerks to eliminate the offending pages from their cache of manuscripts.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 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.

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. Ex-dono biffés sur la page de titre.

        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. See also Ravier, Bibliographie des oeuvres de Leibnitz; Dibner, 109; Sparrow, 130, pl. 86; PMM, 160..

        Tilse ( Tilsit ) / Ein groß Ambt / Stadt / und Schloß. Kupferstich aus Christoph Hartknoch *Alt- und Neues Preussen oder Preussischer Historien* von 1684.

      1684 - Bildmaß der Darstellung: 12,5 x 16,5 cm ( Höhe x Breite ), Blattgröße ca. 29 x 18 cm. Mit oben- und untenstehendem alten Text mit Beschreibung des Schlosses zu Ragnit und Tilsit, alt unter Glas gerahmt ( Rahmenmaß: 31,5 x 21,5 cm ). Aus dem Text: *Nach der Zeit ward dieses Schloss genennet RAGNIT / von einem Wasser oder Flüßgen / welches nahe beygeflossen / wie es auch noch heutiges Tages heisset. Heutiges Tages ist es eines von den besten Schlössern im Herzogthum Preussen / doch sind die alten Gemächer fast nicht zu gebrauchen / so daß man andere Gemächer im Schloß hat müssen anbauen / daß der Hauptmann seine bequeme Wohnung darin haben möchte. Dabey ist heutiges Tages ein grosser volckreicher Flecken. Es ist auch schon vor der Ankunfft deß Teutschen Ordens daselbst ein Schloß und ein Dorff dabey gewesen / deren Nahmen man nicht findet. Im obgedachten 1289sten Jahre hat Meneko von Querfurt auch an der Memel das Schalauer Schlo gebauet / zu dem Ende / daß die bekehrten Schalovinier darinnen wohnen könten / wie Dusberg schreibet. Was dieses für eine Festung gewesen / und wie sie geheissen / setztet Petrus von Dusberg nicht. Allein andere Scribenten melden / daß im gedachten Jahre des Schloß TILSIT gebauet sey / so schliesse ich darauß / daß es eben dieselbe Festung sey / derer Petrus von Dusberg gedencket. Scheinet also / daß dieses Schloß anfangs nicht anders genennet sey / als die Schalauer-Burg / hernach aber / und zwar schon nach deß oftgedachten Dusburgs Zeiten / den Nahmen Tilse bekommen / sonst hätte er desselben Nahmen nicht verschwiegen / wenn derselbe schon zu seiner Zeit bekant. ( hier endet der Text der Seite 410 aus der Chronik ). Das Blatt gering fleckig, leicht gebräunt, wohl etwas knapp beschnitten und zum linken weißen Außenrand hin restauriert.

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.

        Delight and judgment:

      or, a prospect of the great day of judgment, and its power to damp, and imbitter sensual delights, sports, and recreations.An unusually liberal Protestant view of worldly pleasures some of which Horneck condemned only when indulged in excess. Horneck examines the menu of pleasures - particularly what he calls the "sensual, and carnal delights of men, particularly of young men" and asks the rhetorical question: "What is there in that future judgment, that's able to cast a damp on the mirth, and jollities of men, especially the younger sort?" And, in attempting an answer, he examines in turn the various "delights" generally on offer: "delight in gardens, rivers and orchards", "delight in musick, either vocal or instrumental", "delight in books", "delight in drinking and tippling", "delight in cards & dice", "delight in feasting and going to feasts", "delight in fashionable cloaths and habits", "delight in painting and patching, and artificial meliorations of the face and skin", "delight in dancing", and "delight in seeing and going to stage-plays". Horneck's realistic - and relatively sensible - position on make-up and cosmetic surgery (as it were) well illustrates his general position in the real world."Though a man who hath lately had the small pox, or hath been sun-burnt, or whose face hath been parch'd with wind, may lawfully take care by ordinary helps to reduce his face to his former, or native, colour, and complexion; and though we do not judge it against the law of God, to hide some great blemish or defect in the face whereby spectators may be offended, and particularly women that are with child, frighted; and though it is not inconsistent with the rule of the Gospel, to wash the face when dirty; yet all those paints and additional washes, and artificial black spots, whereby men and women endeavour either to set off their complexion the better, to give themselves a more pleasing colour or to mend their meen, or to make themselves look more beautiful, or to attract the eyes, and admiration, and sometimes the unlawful amours of those they converse withal, are things which a Christian must be a stranger too".On the subject of gambling ("cards and dice") the author is also able to offer some comfort. He provides 10 "provisos", conformity with which might allow gambling to be "lawful". Thus proviso 3 is that winnings should be given to the poor, "or some pious use". And proviso 4 is that gamblers and card-players should "spend but very little time in it, not above an hour or two".Anthony Horneck (1641-1697), Church of England clergyman, was born in the Lower Palatinate and was educated for the Reformed ministry. Like many Lutheran and Reformed theologians at that time Horneck came to England to continue his studies in 1660. His eventual reputation in England was based partly on his expertise in oriental languages, and partly on a personal piety which he sustained lifelong. After a number of ecclesiastical preferments, in 1671 he was appointed preacher in the Savoy. He was awarded a Cambridge Doctorate in Divinity in 1681. "Like the protestant orthodox generally, he depended excessively for his leverage upon conscience upon the assertion that the ultimate day of judgment was at hand, and like them was prepared to soften the asceticism for which he called by classifying as things indifferent a more liberal list of worldly pleasures than would have been countenanced by the pietists of the next generation".

Ward in ODNB].8vo., (16) + 379 + (5)pp., including the penultimate advertisement leaf and final blank, contemporary ink annotations on endpapers and on at least two page margins, tiny hole in one text leaf affecting two or three letters on both recto and verso, contemporary blind-ruled calf.

        A Collection of 26 Medical Dissertations

      v.p. [chiefly Strasbourg], 1684. 1 vols. 4to. Later vellum-backed boards. Front joint split, some foxing, browning, marginal stains. 1 vols. 4to. A collection of 26 medical dissertations, mostly published in Strasbourg, 1637-1684, related to various topics including, dysentery, gunshot wounds, the plague, kidney stones, psychological ailments, sleeplessness, surgery on tumors, tooth rot and other maladies. The book includes a manuscript index note at the beginning of the volume and each pamphlet is numbered in manuscript. Most of the titles are quite rare, OCLC showing 3-5 institutions as holding the individual titles. The variety of topics suggests that a physician documenting current research or academic activity in medical studies in Strasbourg compiled the volume. The unique French title in the collection closes the volume and discusses the use of the earliest eau de toilette, L'eau de la Reine de Hongrie, as an antiseptic tonic for the plague.

        Cajus Valerius Catullus. Et in eum Isaaci Vossii observationes.

      London, Isaac Littlebury 1684.. 2 Blätter; 327 (recte 343) Seiten; 15 Blätter. (19,7 x 16,3 cm) 8°. Auf dem Rücken und den Kanten goldgeprägter, zeitgenössischer Lederband über fünf Bünden, das Titelschild fehlt, altes Bibliotheksschildchen aus Papier auf dem Rücken.. Ebert 3782. Schweiger I 84 f. Dibdin I, 379 "[Vossius] commentary, accompanying the poems of Catullus, is elegant and erudite, though not free from occasional indelicacies of thought and illustration. ... the London one is rare, according to Harles ...". Lowndes I, 367. Londoner und Leidener (D. a Gaesbeeck) Paralleldruck, die erste in England gedruckte Catull-Ausgabe, was wegen der dort herrschenden Prüderie nicht verwundert, die nächste folgte 1702 in Cambridge und noch 1961 unterdrückte der Herausgeber eines Catull-Kommentares der Oxford University Press mehr als 30 der insgesamt nur 116 überlieferten Gedichte, die hier vorliegende Voss-Ausgabe war textlich vollständig. Wohl auch die erste Quelle für einige der 1685 verstreut erschienenen Übersetzungsversuche einzelner Catull-Gedichte ins Englische. Mit altem, handschriftlichem Besitzeintrag "Ioan. Gothot. Richteri" auf dem Titelblatt, dort auch ein ausgestempelter Bibliotheksvermerk. In dieser Handschrift und Tinte vereinzelt Mariginalien im weißen Rand. Es kommen mindestens drei zeitgenössische Johann Gottfried Richters in Frage, so daß eine eindeutige Provenienzzuschreibung nicht möglich ist, am wahrscheinlichsten erscheint uns jedoch dieser: "Richter, Johann Gottfried (1763 - 1829) ... geb. in Leipzig, gest. in Eilenburg; Kaiserl. russ. Rat, sachs.-weimar. Hofrat, seit 1774 Hauslehrer in Moskau, seit 1808 Privatgelehrter in Eilenburg." ex: (http:)//thesaurus.cerl.org/record/cnp00353204 Der Einband ein wenig sperrig und berieben, teils mit kleineren Fehlstellen und Bereibungen, am vorderen Gelenk unten etwas eingerissen, innen durchgehend mit Wasserspur, dafür jedoch alles in allem noch gut erhalten. * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich. Versand mit Deutsche Post oder DHL. *
