        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.

The final sections of the third book contain; the consecration of the church; marriage; Jesus predictions of His death; a short warning for married people to follow; and a warning to pray. Finally there is a 14 page Register (Index), which is similar to a concordance which gives the page numbers to particular passages of scripture. Pages are tight and generally clean, with very minor marks in occasional margins and edges age browned. This is a fascinating book which marks the early days of the reformation. In remarkably good condition for a book aged over 325 years old.

        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.

        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 Par?’s Workes (1634), which included a translation of Par?’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.

Al frontespizio, impresso in rosso e nero, incisione calcografica con stemma della Crusca e il relativo motto "Il più bel fior ne coglie". Fuori testo ritratto del Redi inciso da Adrianus Halluech su un dipinto di Justus Supterman. In fine 26 tavole, due delle quali in grande formato, con numerose figure di raccapriccianti parassiti o organi di animali. Minime spellature ai margini. Tagli spruzzati. Buon esemplare, su carta greve. Le prime e le ultime carte sono interessate da pronunciati aloni bruniti. Volume di particolare interesse in quanto completo del ritratto dell'Autore, sovente mancante. Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 1626 ? 1697), naturalista, medico e letterato, compì gli studi a Firenze e a Pisa, laureandosi in Filosofia e Medicina, per poi entrare al servizio dei Medici. Fu arciconsolo della Crusca dal 1678 al 1690, partecipando ai lavori della terza edizione del "Vocabolario" e fu tra i fondatori dell'"Accademia del Cimento". Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale" (da wikipedia). Nel presente testo riporta le esperienze personali in campo anatomico, analizzando ben 108 diversi tipi di parassiti.

        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.

        DESCRIPTION DE LA LOUISIANE, NOUVELLEMENT DECOUVERTE AU SUD OUEST DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE

      Paris. 1684.. [12],312,107pp. 12mo. Bound to style in full calf, gilt, 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.
