London-T. Basset, J. Wright, and R. Chiswell, 1684. Book. A scarce edition of Adam Littleton's uncommon Linguae Latinae Liber Dictionarius. Needing some remedial work to the binding but with the orginal boards and spine. A good copy would be around 750, priced to allow for the work to the binding. The Four Parts are I. An English-Latine, II. A Latine-Classical, III. A Latine-Proper, and IV. A Latine-Barbarous. Adam Littleton, 1627 1694, was a Church of England clergyman, and philologist. He was educated at Westminster School and Christ Church, Oxford. After education, Littleton became usher at Westminster School, where he was later appointed second master. During this time Littleton published many texts on Greek and Latin grammar. During the 1660s, Littleton was appointed a chaplain in ordinary to Charles II. In 1664, he obtained the rectory of St Lukes in Chelsea. In 1670, he received a DD. Alongside his active preaching schedule, Littleton maintained his philological research and in 1678 published Linguae Latinae liber dictionarius quadripartitus, a huge Latin dictionary, which was published at least four times by his death, and several more times in the eighteenth century He was working on a Greek lexicon at the end of his life and read and annotated pieces in Hebrew, Chaldee, and Arabic. (DNB)Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The front board is held by the cords only, which could possibly detach during transit, even after careful packaging.

Generally somewhat browned and edgeworn internally, with some insect damage in the bottom margin, but still quite clear and legible. There is a break in the pagination at p. 424 (Hhh4); numbering skips to p. 451 (Aaaa). Another copy in our hands has identical pagination, and the text is continuous, so this is clearly a printer's error in page numbering. Overall, a very sound copy, lacking frontispice and with the defective page numbering noted above. (Subject: Medieval, Early Printed Books & Cartography.)

London: Benj. Tooke, 1684. Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book measures 12 1/4 x 8". Collation is folio. The item is designated in the notes that accompanied it, and compares accurately with Wing A3754. The prior owners notes (Wings are penciled in the margin of the title page) reference "McAlpin 30.1 x 19.2 cm, (1) 67p. portr. frontisp, appointment of printer on flyleaf." As is our custom the grade may be thought of as a compromise between the newish hardcovers and the understandably aged text, hopefully the listed attributes will answer for specifics.This is a large format pamphlet placed in hardcovers, and has no frontispiece, the original text commences with the title page followed by the 1st page of text, collation code 'B'. Text concludes at page 67, final collition on page 65 code 'S'. It is preceded and followed by tan replacement endsheets. The text, with predictable waviness and minor foxing is mildly age darkened at what look to be its natural, uncut (post assembly) edges. Title page has postage stamp size section missing at lower corner, text has the odd mild stain and corrected dog ear, all fairly mild. Title page also has edge flecking/edge darkening, and more mildly so, the sheet following.There is much variation in the finished size of the leaves (perhaps 1/16th inch) and surely as made. The spine label is done in gilt on black and spine has trace of sunfade especially at top. Board are dark blue cloth. It is now stored air tight under low light.

Although on conviction Barnardiston was fined £10,000 (and imprisoned until he had paid £6000) the judgement was reversed in 1689 by the House of Lords.

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.

Extremely well preserved, supple copy in original binding, with excellent impressions. Extremely rare copy of a classic work produced in 1661 during Japan¬ís intellectual awakening by the important mathematician Isomura Yoshinori (d. 1710). This much enlarged third edition (1684) includes new uses for pi, such as novel calculations of the surface of a sphere. It solves other practical problems, for instance, the best means of surveying difficult landscapes, and the determination of the volumes of solids. These pursuits are illustrated in a Western style with Eastern inflections. The surveying diagrams in particular could be copied directly from a Western manual, if it were not for local touches, such as the clearly-depicted bamboo canes the surveyors use to calculate the height of a tall willow or faraway misty peak.Isomura was known as "master … [Click Below for Full Description]

Filmer, Robert. 1588? - 1653]. By the Learned Sir Robert Filmer, Knight.
Printed for Rich. Royston, 1684 / 1680, London: - Frontis of Charles II. "The Freeholders Grand Inquest Touching Our Sovereign Lord the King and his Parliament" which includes the remaining tracts, "Observations upon Aristotles Politiques Touching Forms of Government"; "Directions for Obedience to Government in Dangerous or Doubtful Times"; "Observations Concerning the Original of Government"; "The Anarchy of a Limited or Mixed Monarchy"; "The Power of Kings and in Particular of the King of England"; & "An Advertisment to the Jury-Men of England Touching Witches." are continuously paginated [with the exception of preliminary matter to each tract], and precede PATRICARCHA. The title piece, Freeholder, "is the prime source for Filmer's constitutional doctrines and is of great interest as a statement of Royalist absolutism. . The contents of this tract are of interest to the constitutional historian for two reasons. First, it illustrates the great importance of the work of scholars of the period to the constitutional controversies. Secondly, it shows that Royalist absolutism was worked out in detail before the Civil War ." [Laslett. PATRIARCHA, p. 128]. The importance of PATRICARCHA, as a treatise on the Right of Kings to Rule, is perhaps best stated by Paul A. Rahe, former Jay P Walker Professor of History at University of Tulsa, " . the book is worth its weight in gold. It was written at some point after 1628 and prior to 1631. Filmer sought permission from Charles I to publish it at some point prior to 8 February 1632 and was on that date denied permission. It circulated th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Groenveldt (Groenevelt), Joannes (Greenfeld, John)
. Londoni, Typis Joannis Bringhurst, 1684, 12°, (16), 137 pp., 1 p. Errata, 1 p., 6 gfefalt. Kupfertaf., Ledereinband d.Zt.; trotz des erneuerten Rücken ein feines und frisches Exemplar.. Rare first Edition of this important book on lithotomy! - Groenvelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16), physician and surgeon, was baptized on 14 May 1648 in the Reformed church of Deventer in the Dutch province of Overijssel; he was the only surviving son of Frans Groenevelt and Goedekin ter Klocken. In mid-January 1666 he matriculated into the well-regarded local 'Illustre School'; in September 1667 he matriculated in medicine at the University of Leiden. Apparently because of the epidemic that occurred in Leiden at the end of the summer of 1669, which forced the university to close for a time, Groenevelt migrated to Utrecht to complete his medical studies, defending his thesis, 'De calculo vesicae', and taking his degree, on 18 March 1670. Perhaps after a visit to France, Groenevelt moved to Amsterdam, where he joined the Collegium Medicum and married Cristina de Ruijter (c.1650-1713) on 4 March 1672. He also entered into a joint practice with the Amsterdam city surgeon Henricus Velthuys, who had an especially good reputation for surgically removing bladder stones. When Velthuys died in May 1674 he left his instruments to Groenevelt, and urged him to take up surgical practice himself. - Groenevelt may have served as physician to the newly liberated Dutch garrison at Grave in October 1674. Then, late in the year, or early in 1675, he and his wife arrived in London. On 5 May 1675 their firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

BONET, Theophile (Theophilus Bonetus). SCHENCK von GRAFENBERG, Johannes. SCHENCK, Johann Georg (ed.).
Genevae: Sumptibus Leonardi Chovet & Socii, 1684. - First Edition, first volume only. In the present work Bonet shows ?how largely the practitioners of the northern parts of Europe. have contributed to the improvement of anatomy, surgery, and medicine, by extracts and accounts of the works of the principal writers of those countries? (Chalmers). A second volume appeared the following year; both volumes were re-issued 1686 and 1687, resulting in a variety of mixed sets. (Chalmers, Gen. Biog. Dict., 1823, VI, pp.49). First Folio Edition of Schenck?s best-known work, with an outstanding engraved portrait. Noted for its clarity of author reference and indexing, ?Schenck?s book is the earliest present source for the numerous pathological observations of Sylvius, Vesalius, and Colombo, which are scattered widely in their own more strictly anatomical works. Probably few medical authors of note from the time of Hippocrates are overlooked. Avenzoar?s ?verruca ventriculi? is noted. Bauhin?s observations of blood gushing forth on opening the head of a man who died from apoplexy, and Garnerus? finding in a dissection of 1578 of a spleen weighing 23 pounds and a liver weighing 11 pounds, most probably a case of splenomyelogenous leukemia, may be cited as examples of the range of pathological discovery quoted. Scheck?s own records concerning intestinal parasites are particularly good. On the whole, the work, while very far from a modern text of pathology, is a remarkable collection of observations preserved in a form permitting recognition in the light of modern knowledge?
