(Paris, 2 Aoust, 1684). 4to. Old half calf, pink wrappers preserved. 8 pp.By 1683, the Ottoman Empire had spread westward until Vienne itself was under siege. Campaigns by the members of the Holy League, comprised of Austria, Poland and the Venetian Rupublic, finally brought relief to Central Europe, and negociations ended with the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1693. This Treaty, between Turkey on the one side and the countries of the Holy League on the other, resulted in Turkey's loss of Hungary, Transylvania, Croatia, Slavonia, Dalmatia, the Peloponnesus, and other territories. The Treaty also marked the beginning of the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire. This pamphlet pertains to the taking of Vicegard and Weitzen, two towns close to Budapest, by Charles, Duke of Lorraine and his Holy League forces, not long after they had relieved Vienna. Some months later, in early 1685, they also took Budapest from the Turks, and the Turkish hegemony in Eastern Europe was over.We have not located any copy in any library which we have consulted.

Er war Katholik in Frankreich und Protestant in Holland. Er stammte aus einer adligen Familie im Compoix-Cadastres, wählte den geistlichen Stand und trat in den Benediktinerorden ein, wo er Griechisch und Latein lernte. Außerdem trieb er die Rechtsgelahrtheit, wurde Protonotarius des römischen Stuhls, Rat König Ludwigs, Almosenier , königlich französischer Geschichtsschreiber und Doktor der Juristenfakultät an der Universität Paris . 1672 gab er die Ämter auf, ging nach Genf und trat, angeblich wegen der Irrtümer der päpstlichen Kirche, zur evangelisch reformoerten Religion über. In 1675ging nach Leiden, aber die protestantische Kirche zahlte wohl nicht genug und so zog er 1687 wieder nach Frankreich und wollte wieder in die römische Kirche eintreten. Da man ihm aber seine einträglichen Stellen nicht wieder einräumen wollte, ging er erneut nach Holland und wurde reformiert. Zwischen 1681 und 1683 hatte er in Den Haag Schriften herausgegeben. Zuletzt holte die römische Kirche ihn doch zurück und gab ihm sein Kanonikat wieder. (Wikipedia). - (Age-browned).Sturminger 2550. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Willis, Dr. Thomas, 1621-1675
London: Printed By H[enry] Clark, for T[homas] Drink, C[harles}, Harper and J[ohn] Leigh, 1684. Quarto. [8], [26], 152 pages. Willis was primarily interested in chemistry and its application to medicine. He began considering the chemical aspects of this subject as early as 1656. His work was published first in Latin and then posthumously in English in 1681. This copy appeared in 1684. ESTC R186615 records a copy in the U of Penn, Van Pelt-Dietrich in the US, 2 copies in the UK. The only copy in the U.S. which is at the U of Penn lacks the 26 pages entitled The Table [A Table of all the hard words derived from the Greek and Latin...] The UK versions apparently have them placed at the end of the volume instead of with the preliminaries. Willis is thought to be the earliest with the suggestion that fermentation taking place within the intestines and it is related to purification. As a master of clinical observation, the author became a pioneer on the analysis of diseases and small anatomical details not previously noted. Very rare in remarkably nice condition with some toning or finger soiling to title page, bound in a more modern (19th century?) 1/4 brown calf over marbled paper covered boards, red morocco spine label gilt, from the library of Otto Orren Fisher (1881-1961) A physician whose collection of rare medical books were sold at a Swann auction in 2007.

AGRIPPAE, Henri Cornelius
1684 Agrippa Occult Philosophy WITCHES Demons Magic Witchcraft Incertitudine An incredibly rare 1684 English printing of Henri Cornelius Agrippae. Agrippa was an early 16th-century scholar who specialized in occult writings. Many of his works dealt with dark magic and the practice of occult arts; however, it is known that he argued against the persecution of witches. One of his most important works was “Incertitudine” or “Declamation of Arts and Sciences” which was a satirical account of the disappointing state of science during the 1520s. It was an important contributor to skepticism and philosophers such as Montaigne, Descartes, and Goethe. According to Jones, this book is “one of the great classics of skeptical literature.” “Incertitudine” covers a wide variety of occult topics including alchemy, astronomy, theurgy, magic rituals, summoning gods, discovering one’s psyche, mysticism and the cabala, Abraxas stones and charms, general magic and natural magic, dreams and dream interpreting, dangers of witchcraft, phantasms and miracles, and much more. Agrippa’s aim with this work was “to propose a cultural alternative, delineating a different philosophical approach, capable of forming a new intellectual élite, who would be seriously interested in the moral and religious progress of human community.” (SEP) This English edition features changes and edits, most likely by James Sanford, which were completely foreign to Agrippa’s original text. One such instance is that of Sanford referring to Gypsies as Cattle – something not found in Agrippa’s. (Whitford, p. 73) Item number: #4 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tatsächlich geändert wurde aber die Titelvignette, die jetzt einen Doppeladler und eine schöne kalligraphierte Schrift aufweist. - Diese große Ungarnkarte war eine der am meisten verbreitesten und genutztesten Karten des Landes im 17. Jahrhundert. 1661 wurde sie gezeichnet und in einem besonders prächtigem Exemplar Kaiser Leopold I. gewidmet. Die Zeichnungen sind noch heute in der Nationalbibliothek vorhanden. Die Karte selbst beruht auf keinen neuen Vermessungen sondern stützt sich auf die Ungarndarstellungen von Lazarus - Tannstetter (1528) und Wolfgang Lazius (1556). Alle bekannten Ungarnkarten folgen fast 200 Jahre diesem Kartentyp. Wesentliches Merkmal all jener Karten ist der eigentümliche West-Ost Verlauf der Donau. Gegenüber den Vorgängern sind bei Martin Stier eine Reihe von topographischen Verbesserungen erstmals vorgenommen worden, so zum Beispiel die Darstellung von Neusiedlersee und Plattensee". - Papierbedingt gebräunt, vereinzelt kl. Schabspuren am Rand. Index mit hs. Anmerkungen. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - Tel. +4 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Willis, Dr. Thomas, 1621-1675
London: Printed By H[enry] Clark, for T[homas] Drink, C[harles}, Harper and J[ohn] Leigh, 1684. Quarto. [8], [26], 152 pages. ESTC R186615 records a copy in the U of Penn, Van Pelt-Dietrich in the US, 2 copies in the UK. The copy at the U of Penn lacks the 26 pages entitled The Table [A Table of all the hard words derived from the Greek and Latin...] The UK versions apparently have them placed at the end of the volume instead of with the preliminaries. This is thought to be the earliest with the suggestion that fermentation taking place within the intestines and it is related to purification. As a master of clinical observation, the author became a pioneer on the analysis of diseases and small anatomical details not previously noted. Very rare in remarkably nice condition with some toning or finger soiling to title page, bound in a more modern (19th century?) 1/4 brown calf over marbled paper covered boards, red morocco spine label gilt, from the library of Otto Oren Fisher (1881-1900) A Detroit scientist with his bookplate.

Chatelain Henri Abraham (1684 - 1743) Amsterdam
Artist: Chatelain Henri Abraham ( - 1743) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1720. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 37 x 49; - description: views of Japanese cities with descriptions - vita of the artist: Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

Barnardiston, Samuel Sir, 1620-1707; George Jeffreys, L. Braddon and Hugh Speke
London: For Benjamin Tooke, 1684. First Edition. Small Folio. The three tryals (trials) are bound together in a single volume since their lives were intertangled. Each with their own title page; 34pp, 78pp. and 56pp. In the development of English law, the Crown successfuly accused Sir Samuel Bardardiston of writing liberlous private letters. This case was one of the most celebrated in English law [see Stephens, History of Criminal Law, p. 313-314); In the letters, Bardardiston had questioned the existence of the "sham" popish plot and had criticized members of the government and the bench, including the judge, William Scroggs, who subsequently sat at Barnardiston's trial. Chief Justice Jeffreys was challenged by Bardardiston who in turn told the jury he had offered no proof of his allegations. It helps to understand that in the 1680's, judges and Crown lawyers disparagingly referred to questions of knowledge and malice as mere formalities. Having such knowledge not in the interest of the Crown was an indication in itself of complicity. Barnariston was fined £10,000 and remanded to prison. These three cases are among the most important in the turbulent period before the Glorious Revolution. Later that year, John Turner published the overall view of the conspirators in his work The History of the Whiggish-plot, or, a brief historical account of the charge and defence of Barnardiston, Braddon Speak, and John Hamden..(London, 1684). Bound in full panerled calf, earlier rebacking retaining the original gilt spine, a handfull of pages with contemporary lines in margins highlighti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura coeva in piena pergamena floscia con dorso muto.1 carta bianca con, al recto, nota di possesso "Biblioteca di Domenico de Pino"; 8 pagine non numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo e fregi tipografici, lacuna lungo il bordo inferiore alta 3,5 cm a tagliare antica nota di possesso manoscritta; 1 tavola fuori testo incisa al recto, bianco il verso; 110-(2) pagine numerate. PRIMA EDIZIONE. Dedicata a Francesco Redi e con un panegirico in versi di 4 pagine di Pier Adriano Vanderbroeck, l'opera di Marchetti è scritta con un'eleganza di stile che la pone al di sopra dei molti altri libri sull'argomento dei suoi contemporanei. Gamba e Riccardi concordano tuttavia sul fatto che sia di maggior valore per la sua analisi delle precedenti considerazioni, e per la sua eleganza di presentazione, che non per la nuova ipotesi scientifica proposta. Cfr. Treccani, ".In quella fase la vicinanza al suo ex allievo Giuseppe Del Papa, lettore di filosofia nello Studio, fece risorgere nel M. l'interesse per l'astronomia, concretizzatosi nelle osservazioni sulla cometa del 1680, che i due compirono insieme e poi pubblicarono nelle rispettive opere, Del Papa inserendole nei Trattati vari (Firenze 1734), il M. nel Della natura delle comete (Firenze 1684), che raccoglie anche dati ricavati dalle osservazioni delle comete del 1681 e del 1682.A quanto sembra, già in una delle conclusiones da lui discusse e pubblicate nel 1659, il M. aveva affrontato il tema della natura delle comete, aderendo alla visione proposta da Galilei e contrastando quella tolemaico-aristotelica.
