Saint Augustine
Paris-Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1684. Book. A scarce and early collection of these renowned religious letters, which are considered influential in the development of Western Christianity and philosophy. Written in French. New edition, reviewed and corrected on ancient manuscripts, with someletters that had not yet been published. Adorned with decorative head and tail pieces, as well as a charming engraved vignette to each title page. According to his contemporary, Jerome, Augustine established anew the ancient Faith. In his early years, he was heavily influenced by Manichaeism and afterward by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus. After his conversion to Christianity and his baptism in 387, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and different perspectives. He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom and he framed the concepts of original sin and just war. Augustine was one of the most prolific Latin authors in terms of surviving works, and the list of his works consists of more than one hundred separate titles. They include apologetic works against the heresies of the Arians, Donatists, Manichaeans and Pelagians; texts on Christian doctrine, notably De Doctrina Christiana (On Christian Doctrine); exegetical works such as commentaries on Book of Genesis, the Psalms and Paul's Letter to the Romans; many sermons and letters; and the Retractationes, a review of his earlier works which he wrote near the end of his life. Apart from those, Augustine is probably best known for his Confessions), which is … [Click Below for Full Description]

DANCKERTS, Justus (1635-1701)
[Amsterdam: circa 1684]. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline and with the inset view of New York entirely coloured. 20 1/2 x 24 1/4 inches. A fine example of the second state of Danckerts' important map, with beautiful period hand colouring. This important map is derived from the Visscher map of about 1655, which is itself drawn from the Janssonius map of 1651. Philip Burden lists three states of this map: the first which was probably published in about 1673 and is easily recognized as it does not include Philadelphia and there is no mention of Pennsylvania in the title. Burden writes of the present second state: "Following the founding of Philadelphia a revised state was produced ... Danckerts updated the map in a significant manner. The Delaware River is completely revised so that it no longer connects with the Hudson River ... Pennsylvania is named, its boundary is marked, and many largely domestic animals are engraved within the region. Recognition of the English hold over New Amsterdam is seen in the addition to the title to the view of [the words]Nieuw Yorck, eetÿs Genaemt above. ... Along with the addition to the view title ... the main [title] ... has had [the words] Pennsylvaniæ, et partis added as the third line" (Burden, II pp.39-40).

Detta är första upplagan av Catullus i Vossius edition. Gustaf Peringer Lillieblad (1651-1710) var orientalist, professor i österländska språk i Uppsala och sedermera censor librorum och hovbibliotekarie. Han adlades 1693. Exemplaret har sedan ägts av kanslirådet Erik von Roland (1675-1754) som deltog i Karl XII:s krig och en tid var auskulant vid Riksarkivet. Samuel Älf mindes honom i ett brev som "en underlig gubbe och alla böcker han ägt bära märken af hans flitiga läsning och beläsenhet i andra skrifter". Allan Ranius, som skrivit om Rolands bibliotek, tillägger: "De klassiska auktorerna - som för Roland var ojämförliga - fanns inte bara i original, utan även i talrika översättningar till moderna språk." Rolands bibliotek kom via biskop Eric Filenius donation till Linköpings stiftbibliotek, varifrån en del böck … [Click Below for Full Description]

OLINA, G.P.
Roma, Angelo de Rossi, 1684. 4to (270 x 210mm). Leaves 5, including engraved title, pp. 77, (1), leaves 6 (index), engraved title, enclosed in broad, figured border containing fowlers on either side and a shield of arms below, and 66 fine full-page engravings of birds and bird hunting scenes. 18th century tree-calf, spine with gilt ornaments and red gilt lettered label. The second and according to Schwerdt superior edition. The first edition appeared in 1622. '...a book on bird catching, delightful, chiefly owing to Tempesta's spirited illustrations of the methods employed by fowlers in the beginning of the 17th century. Olina was not, however, the originator of this work, which was an adaptation of an earlier publication entitled "il canto degl' avgelli", written by Valli da Todi, and printed at Rome in 1601... and it is curious that Olina could have issued his 'Uccelliera' within twenty years of its appearance without making any reference to the original author and yet have escaped detection' (Schwerdt II, p. 48). In addition to the different bird species, the work deals with different methods of catching birds and the art of keeping them in captivity, as well as their diseases. "Chiefly song-birds are represented of the natural size (pp. 1-50), but in addition (pp. 51-81) there are plates of partridge and quail netting; partridge-hawking with the Goshawk; trap to catch a Sparrow-hawk; and illustrations of the mode in which bird-catchers employ the Little Owl (Civetta) and falconers the Eagle Owl (Gufo)..."

Hardouin Jean
Parisiis, Excudebat Franciscus Muguet, 1684. 1684 In-4° (284x205mm), pp. (54), 610, (1), cartonatura alla rustica coeva con titolo e fregio manoscritti anticamente al dorso. Al frontespizio, stemma calcografico all'Arcivescovo Charles Maurice Le Tellier, dedicatario dell'opera; il blasone del religioso è ripetuto sulla testatina incisa su rame dal Giffart che sormonta la dedicatoria, affiancato da putti, da un leone, da una figura femminile allegorica. Alla dedica fanno seguito un "Index Caesarum, et Augustarum", un indice dei nomi dei magistrati, dei pretori, dei pontefici, un indice delle cose notabili. Aloni marginali alle prime 2 cc. e alle ultime 20 p. ca., nonché alle ultime cc. bianche, al contropiatto e al piatto posteriori; sparse bruniture e fioriture; nell'insieme, più che discreto esemplare a pieni margini. Edizione originale di questa trattazione sulle monete di Grecia e di Roma antica. L'Hardouin (Quimper, Bretagna,1646-Parigi, 1729), sacerdote gesuita, è noto ancora oggi per le sue teorie sul mondo classico estremamente bizzarre e destituite di fondamento per la loro paradossalità già all'epoca; egli credette che la maggior parte delle opere dell'antichità classica (ad eccezione dei poemi omerici, di Erodoto, di Cicerone, di Plinio il Vecchio, delle "Georgiche" virgiliane, delle "Satire" e delle "Epistole" di Orazio) fossero falsi prodotti nel XIII secolo dai monaci benedettini.

7,6 x 145, ottima leg.coeva piena perg. con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso, esemplare fresco, pp. (8) 440 + index rerum notabilium. Joao Poinsot (1589-1644) nasce a Lisboa da nobile famiglia. Assume il nome di Ioannes de s. Thoma il 17 luglio 1609 a Madrid, allorché entra nei frati predicatori. Nel 1631 e nel 1632, dà alle stampe la prima e la seconda parte dell' ARTIS LOGICAE. Nel 1641 è promosso alla cattedra mattutina "di Lerma". Muore a Praga, ove si trovava al seguito del re, il 17 giugno 1644. Questo libro che proponiamo è una edizione bolognese della "quarta pars" dell'ARTIS LOGICAE, pubblicata nel 1637 e posseduta da poche biblioteche sul territorio italiano. Qui l'autore viene presentato come "Complutensis Academiae publico Theologiae Professore in Cathedra Vespertina, Collegii S.Thomae Regente et Sacra Inquisitionis Censore". La seconda parte dell'ARTIS LOGICAE (1632) fu il primo trattato che pose le fondamenta della investigazione semiotica come un unificato e unico argomento: IOANNES DE S. THOMAE si pone così come l'ultimo dei filosofi scolastici e il primo filosofo dell'età moderna.

Nice copy of Thomas Bartholin's famous compilation of his father's pioneering medical works, that did appear first time in 1651. Bartholin, who died in 1680, revised the book several times and added his own works, not least the dissertation of the entire lymphatic system - which he was the first to describe. The book also describes William Harvey's work on blood circulation, making it a monument of 17th century efforts to chart the human body and its functions.** The last part of the book consists of Bartholin's publication of Johannes de Wale's "Epistolæ duæ", in which he showed himself as a true supporter of Harvey

“Esquemeling, John.” (i.e. Alexandre Olivier Exquemelin.)
Lon., 1684-1685. Small 4to. (9), 47, 80, 84 (12); (14), 212, (24) pp. b/w plates, map, some folding. “Wherein are contained more especially the unparallel’d exploits of Sir Henry Morgan, our English Jamaican hero, who sack’d Puerto Bello, burnt Panama, &c.” As Gosse states it, this is the second impression of the first three parts of the first edition in English. (It was preceded by Dutch, German, and Spanish editions.) “A few months after its publication a second volume was published.” The second volume, “Containing the Dangerous Voyage and Bold Attempts of Captain Bartholemew Sharp and Others...” added to the “second edition” of the first volume, is considered the true first edition of the entire “Bucaniers.” The book was an instant and huge success, spawning dozens of imitations, both factual and fictional. Ironically, the “unparallel’d exploits of Sir Henry Morgan” so incensed Morgan that he sued the publisher for libel and won a judgment of 200 pounds. This copy is complete with three folding maps, four portraits, four plates, and numerous wood engraved maps and recognition views in text. Hill 579. Gosse p. 34-35. Sabin 23479. A very nice copy, bound in old mottled calf, rebacked to match, with raised bands and spine label. Text and plates clean.

In many ways his talent seems to have been to be seen as impartial in those troubles. His understanding of the constitution was broadly royalist and he never appeared for the prosecution in a case involving a royalist defendant. Yet during the Civil Wars, when royalists left London Hale remained living there and is reported to have taken the solemn league and covenant. Hale had an extensive practice under the protectorate and sat as MP for Gloucester in the first of the protectorate parliaments. Hale was knighted after the restoration and while held in great regard by most, some royalist Anglicans suspected him of pro-puritan and anti-government bias.

van Keulen, Johannis
Amsterdam. Johannes van Keulen Boekverkoper aande Nieuwnbrugh Inde Gekroonde Loots-man. 1684 - ca 1710. Visible map area 51 x 58 cm. Frame 67,5 x 74 cm. Gilt frame. Passe partout with hand coloured gilt line. Not examined out of the frame. A few minor creases and spots. Strong impression. Nce copy.. A sea chart depicting the swedish east coast from Kalmar sund to the Stockholm archipelago including the islands of Gotland and Öland. The chart is tilted. North is oriented to the east. The dutch dominated the sea chart production in the 17th and 18th centuries. Famous names are Wagenhear, Goos and van Keulen. The van Keulen family was at the forefront of sea chart production from the late 17th through the 18th centuries. Johannes van Keulen published the "Zee-Fackel" in 1681-1682. It was soon printed in new editions in several languages and soon expanded into a five volume set covering most of the world. In 1753 a sixth volume, the so called "Secret Atlas" of the East Indies was published. The "Zee-Faakel" became the most important sea atlas of its time due to Johannes son Gerhard van Keulens great understanding of navigation and the introduction of the Mercator projection into the atlas. In 1706 Gerhard was appointed Hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company becoming responsible for the secret nautical information concerning East India, only to be disributed to mariners on their way to the Indies. Few see charts remains since they were used at see and soon destroyed. Surviving charts were often thrown away when they were not accuarate any more

DU VAL, Pierre (1618-1683)
Paris, 1684. Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts.This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map.Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed.The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible.This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death.Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).

Butler, Samuel (1612-1680), and Thomas D'Urfey
London: Printed by T.N. for Henry Herringman and are to be sold by T. Basset, 1684 London: Printed for Joseph Hindmarsh, at the. 1612-1680 Octavo, 4.25 x 6.75 inches. The first collected edition. A-Z, Aa-Cc8. A-Q8. [ ]4, B-N8. This copy is bound in nineteenth century full calf with a gilt spine, with all edges gilt, overall, a very pleasing copy. Hudibras is the most famous work of the last seventeenth century English metaphysical poet. It was much favored by Royalists and often quoted by King Charles II, who awarded Butler 3000 pounds sterling for its composition. Butler's Hudibras is written in iambic tetrameter, like the works of the metaphysical poets but it makes a seachange shift which starts a thread in English literature which runs into the fabric of Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy and even to Joyce's Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake. The irreverent treatment and scope of subject is undoubtledy responsible for its great popularity. "Hudibras may be described as a mock-heroic poem dealing with the pretensions and hypocrisies of the presbyterians, independents and other sects which were subversive of the monarchy at the time of the great rebellion. Though it was not published till after the restoration of Charles II, Butler's sympathies were ardently royalist; but his pen, so far as we know, was engaged only fitfully in support of his convictions. His object in putting together in a considerable poem an account of the events and opinions which he had quietly recorded during the convulsive struggles of the nation must have been to ingratiate himself with the king a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The second and according to Schwerdt superior edition. The first edition appeared in 1622. '.a book on bird catching, delightful, chiefly owing to Tempesta's spirited illustrations of the methods employed by fowlers in the beginning of the 17th century. Olina was not, however, the originator of this work, which was an adaptation of an earlier publication entitled "il canto degl' avgelli", written by Valli da Todi, and printed at Rome in 1601. and it is curious that Olina could have issued his 'Uccelliera' within twenty years of its appearance without making any reference to the original author and yet have escaped detection' (Schwerdt II, p. 48). In addition to the different bird species, the work deals with different methods of catching birds and the art of keeping them in captivity, as well as their diseases."Chiefly song-birds are represented of the natural size (pp. 1-50), but in addition (pp. 51-81) there are plates of partridge and quail netting; partridge-hawking with the Goshawk; trap to catch a Sparrow-hawk; and illustrations of the mode in which bird-catchers employ the Little Owl (Civetta) and falconers the Eagle Owl (Gufo)."
