Elle est illustrée d'un frontispice (portrait d'apparat allégorique représentant Louis XIV cuirassé déroulant un plan de Vauban) de Pierre le Pautre, d'un bandeau du même et d'un autre non signé.  Reliure de l'époque en plein veau brun moucheté. Dos à cinq nerfs, orné de caissons et fleurons dorés ainsi que d'une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Coupes et coiffes ornées d'un double filet doré. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Mors et coiffe de queue habilement restaurés. Mors un peu fendu ainsi que quelques frottements. 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. Ex-dono biffés sur la page de titre.

      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.

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.

        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.

        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. In good condition. - VD 17, 3:310364C. Not in Atabey or Blackmer.

        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".

        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.

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.

Richteri" auf dem Titelblatt, dort auch ein ausgestempelter Bibliotheksvermerk. In dieser Handschrift und Tinte vereinzelt Mariginalien im weißen Rand.

        Historia de la Conquista de Mexico

      1684. SOLIS - A SPANISH CLASSIC OF HISTORIOGRAPHY SOLIS (Y RIBADENEYRA), Antonio de. Historia de la Conquista de Mexico. Engraved title-page, 16 ff., 548 pp. (pp. 382-383 repeated, pp. 399-400 omitted in numbering), 15 pp. Folio, 281 x 195 mm, bound in nineteenth-century Spanish brown quarter morocco over marbled boards, marbled edges. Madrid: Bernardo de Villa-Diego, 1684. |~||~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of one of the key works of Mexican history, "the most remarkable history in the Castillian language" (Prescott), and "undoubtedly the most popular history of America that had then been written; and the number of editions published even up to the 19th century, in Spanish, French, Italian, English and German, testify to its popularity long after the initial interest of historical information had passed" (Cox). This fundamental work on the conquest of Mexico remains a classic of the late "siglo do oro," the golden age of Spanish literature. Solis (1610-1686), a Spanish poet and dramatist (and friend of Calderón), became secretary to Carlos II and succeeded Antonio de Leon Pinelo as official "Cronista mayor de Indias." His precise descriptions of events, covering the appointment of Hernan Cortés as commander of the invading force, through the fall of the city of Tenochtitlan (ciudad de Mexico), make the Historia a work of lasting value. In addition to the full account of the relations between Cortés and Montezuma, there is a wealth of information on the daily lives of the Indians. A continuation of this work, entitled Historia de la conquista de Mexico...Segunda parte, written by I. de Salazar y Olarte, was published at Cordoba in 1743. Paper flaw to p. 289; inner margin of p. 177 with early repair; overall a fresh and attractive copy. Sabin 86446 (gives a twenty-page description). Alden-Landis 684:167. Cox II, p. 239 (the English edition of 1724). Medina (BHA) 1773n. Leclerc 1312. Prescott, History of the Conquest of Mexico (1864), pp. 223-229.

        Aristoteles Master-Piece

      London: J. How, 1684. [Pseudo-Aristotle]. Aristoteles master-piece, or the secrets of generation displayed in all the parts thereof . . . 12mo. [4, including woodcut frontispiece], 190, [2, blank], [12, including 6 woodcut illustrations, one a repeat of the frontispiece]pp. London: Printed for J. How, 1684. 144 x 85 mm. Early sheep, worn, binding separating from text block; preserved in a cloth box. Occasional worming and staining, edges frayed, woodcuts with holes, tears and chips slightly affecting images, last woodcut with marginal loss affecting a few words of text, a few leaves slightly cropped, but a good, unsophisticated copy of a book that was mostly read out of existencce. First Edition. First published at the end of the seventeenth century, Aristotle?'s Masterpiece (neither by Aristotle nor a masterpiece) was the first sex manual in English, providing its readers with practical advice on copulation, conception, pregnancy and birth.This anonymous, inexpensively printed work proved to be enormously popular: At least three editions were issued by J. How in 1684 (see ESTC and below in our description), and it went through well over 100 editions in the following two centuries.Versions even continued to be published into the early twentieth century, with one appearing as late as 1930! Although Aristotle?'s Masterpiece was not intended as pornography, its frank discussion of sex and reproduction was seen as unfit for polite society; the book was often issued under false imprints and sold ?"under the table.?" The publication history of the work is discussed in some detail in Roy Porter and Lesley Hall?'s The Facts of Life (pp. 54-64) and Mary Fissell?'s ?"Hairy Women and Naked Truths?" (p. 47); it should be noted, though, that Porter and Hall were unaware of the 1684 editions of the Masterpiece. ?"The subject of Aristotle?'s Master-Piece is reproduction. That both men and women will long to copulate, that passion will not prove delusory or destructive, that there is an esteem and respect between the sexes which transcends brute lust—all these are taken for granted, requiring no special pleading, syllogisms or learned footnotes. . . . Aristotle?'s Master-Piece feels under no obligation to vindicate to its readers the pleasures of heterosexual intercourse; it will merely instruct them in how to do it well?" (Porter & Hall, p. 42). On a darker note, the Masterpiece also contains a discussion of the then-mysterious problem of ?"monsterous births,?" attributed variously to maternal imagination, witchcraft, human-animal copulation or a disorder of the womb. The woodcut illustrations—all depicting ?"monsters?"—are copied from the English edition of Ambroise Paré?'s Workes (1634), which included a translation of Paré?'s Des monstres et prodigies (1573). The frontispiece woodcut, which makes another appearance at the end of the book, shows a naked woman covered in hair and a black child born to white parents; the remaining illustrations show conjoined twins, a ?"half man half dog?" and other severe deformities. The first editions of Aristotle's Masterpiece, published by J. How, appeared in 1684; each has its own distinct setting of type, and no priority has been established among them. The editions can be distinguished by their title pages. In the edition we are offering, the title leaf is a cancel, with the imprint at the foot of the title reading ?"London: Printed for J. How, and are to be sold / next door to the Anchor Tavern in Swee- / things-Rents in Cornhil?"; line 11 of the title ends with the word ?"both?" and line 18 ends in ?"Ge-?". ESTC has recently identified another edition with the ?"Swee- / things?" imprint in which line 18 ends in ?"Geni-?"; see their catalogue entries at http://estc.bl.uk/R504793 and http://estc.bl.uk/R4283. Another 1684 edition, also with a cancel title, has an imprint reading ?"London: Printed for J. How, and are to be sold next / door to the Anchor Tavern in Sweetings Rents / in Cornhil.?" Line 11 in this edition ends in ?"Sexes?" and line 18 ends in ?"Con-?"; see the ESTC description at http://estc.bl.uk/R236899. Until very recently ESTC had stated that line 11 of the ?"Swee- / things?" imprints ends in ?"reasons,?" an error that they have since corrected based on information we supplied them. We have located 12 copies, ours and 11 in institutions; ours is the only complete copy with the "Swee-/things" imprint.

        Autograph letter signed, to the Duchess of Aveiro

      Agaña (Mariana Islands), 1684. Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. A spanish martyr on colonising the southern continent. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed...' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the mission's patron the Duchess of Aveiro, sold by Maggs Brothers in their famous catalogue Australia and the South Seas of 1927. This specific letter was item 52 in the catalogue, which summarised the manuscript thus:'Father Solorzano tells how supplies for the Mariana Islands had been delayed by storms, but that the people of Manila had sent help to them under the command of Don Damian de Esplaña. The garrison had been away in the island of Rota, preparing the conquest of the island of Zaypan, and on its return voyage had nearly been lost in a great storm together with the governor and various friendly Indians, in all some three hundred persons.' "Added to this anxiety was another... which was that the bilander which was moored to the harbour with nine cables, broke away during the gale, and was finally smashed to pieces on the reefs off the shore, thereby destroying our hope of exploring the southern islands which lead to the unknown Austral lands and are the goal of our endeavours".'The writer goes on to tell how they had tried to obtain other boats for the purpose of exploring the islands in the South, and that the Governor having died Esplaña had been nominated in his stead...'We have been unable to trace whether this proposed expedition ever set sail'. (Maggs, catalogue 491, item 52, £52 10s).As various publications of the period attest, the Spanish and especially the colonists in Mexico continued to see the proposals of Quiros for the evangelisation and annexation of the southern land as a real possibility. In 1669 for example, Father Luis de San Vitores' Memorial, printed in Mexico, renewed Quiros' call (and quoted from him extensively) to lobby for the consolidation of a mission in the Mariana Islands as a stepping-stone to the colonization and conversion of the "Southern or Austral Islands"

        Nova methodus pro maximis et minimis, itemque tangentibus, quae nec fractas nec irrationales quantitates moratur et singulare pro illis calculi genus (in: Acta Eruditorum, year 1684)

      Leipzig, Christopher Gunther for J. Grossium, and Christoph Breitkopf for J. Gleiditsch, 1684. Small 4to. [19,7 x 15,3 cm]. pp. 467-473 and one plate (Tab. XII) for the article. Contemporary half vellum over boards with title written in contemporary hand on the spine.l The 1684 volume with Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus 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. We offer the entire third volume of the Acta Eruditorum, year 1684, which collates as follows, [10], 590, [8] pp. with 14 engraved plates and tables, some folding. A very good copy in unusually crisp and clean condition, and in an attractive original binding. Norman 1326; Dibner, Heralds of science 109; Ravier, Biblio. de Leibnitz 84-96, 101-104 and 195-214; PMM, 160.
