London, Richard Chiswell, 1684. First Thus. First Impression. Hardback. First edition translated by Gilbert Burnet (often quoted as preferable to Ralph Robinson's). One of the most important taproot texts for modern speculative fiction and a milestone in the genre's history. A lovely recent binding, marred by loss from every leaf that has been expertly repaired but still pretty obvious. A little spotted. A rare edition. Pagination: [24], 206. First leaf is a blank, followed by the title page and then the prologue. Our previous copy had to blanks before the title page, though the collation on this copy seems correct. Utopia is one of the most important works to have influenced the field of speculative fiction. In the 500 years since its publication, there have been hundreds of imitators, and the field would be a very different landscape without it.

Rückdeckel mit Fehlstellen, Vorderdeckelbezug mit restaurierter Beschädigung, Vorsätze mit alten Notizen u. teils entfernten Siegellackresten). Erste Ausgabe des Werkes, auf dessen Titel vier Bücher annonciert wurden, von denen aber nur das vorliegende erschien. "De secretis adeptorum" enthält 150 Rezepturen, die Weidenfeld aus verschiedenen Quellen zog, u.a. aus Manuskripten Robert Boyles: "There seems little doubt but that this one is of the MSS, burned in 1688 and of which none of the titles are otherwise known" (Duveen). Weidenfeld hatte Boyle in London aufgesucht, weil er dessen klare und schlichte Art zu schreiben bewunderte. Weidenfeld "tried to counteract the obscurity of hermetic writing by making public property of his own researches concerning the spirit of wine, in which the whole secret of the art was centered ... His book is a collection of menstrua, first vegetable, the mineral, divided into simples and compounds, and taken from various earlier writers" (Thorndike). - Nach Jöcher war Weidenfeld Mediziner in Hamburg. - Thorndike VIII,394; Neu 4309, Ferchl 571, Duveen 614, Kopp II,367; Jöcher IV,1852. - Gebräunt u. stockfleckig.

The first two parts, each with same title and text (printed with variant types) have the imprint 'London: Printed in the Year 1684', the third part (A new relation of the inner-part of the Grand Segnor's seraglio) has the imprint 'London, Printed, and Sold by R.L. and Moses Pitt. 1684', 23 engraved plates and maps (as called for, several folding); contemporary calf, neatly rebacked preserving spine, morocco lettering piece. An unusual issue of the 1684 edition, confined to works solely by Tavernier; other 1684 editions include additional works by various authors. Tavernier spent eleven months in Constantinople before setting out on his first journey. He joined a caravan for Persia in 1638 and, between 1643 and 1668, made six voyages to Persia, India, the East Indies, and Japan. During his travels he amassed a large collection of diamonds and other jewels. His successful commercial enterprise was recognised by Louis XIV and he was granted a patent of nobility for his contribution to the establishment of French trade in Asia. It was Tavernier who indicated the trade routes to the East and made it possible for others to follow him. cf. Blackmer 1632; cf. Sinkankas 6504; ESTC R184885

Bound in contemporary full calf. Wear to covers. Rebacked, with original spines conserved. Collated: 3 (of 4) engraved plates (2 folding). 141 illustrations in text. v. 1: [3], [61], 895 p.

Institutional book plate. <br> Foxe's Book of Martyrs was first published in 1563, as a graphic (depicting torture and executions) and polemical chronicle of the sufferings of Protestants under the Catholic Church. It was highly influential and had a long standing impact on the perception of Catholicism and Spain in Britain. English Puritans were particularly enthralled by the work, which was subsequently taken to the new world. Although his account is one-sided, Foxe wrote about his contemporaries from personal knowledge or firsthand accounts, unobtainable elsewhere. <br> John Foxe was an Oxford-trained churchman, who became a Protestant after reading the early works of the Reformation and meeting with Hugh Latimer and William Tyndale at Oxford. Both Tyndale (1536, strangled and then burnt at the stake) and Latimer (1555, burnt at the stake) would later be martyred and their stories told by Foxe. Upon the assent of Queen Mary, Foxe left England for Frankfort and Basel, Switzerland. Foxe would have met a similar fate, but narrowly esca … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEIBNIZ, Gottfried Wilhelm.
Leipzig: Christopher Günther for J. Gross & J. F. Gleditsch, 1684. First edition. First edition of Leibniz's invention of the differential calculus. "Leibniz was an almost universal genius whose place in the history of mathematics depends on his being an independent inventor of the infinitesimal calculus and on his contributions to combinatorial analysis which foreshadowed the development of modern mathematical analysis ... The Acta Eruditorum was established in imitation of the French Journal des Sçavans in Berlin in 1682 and Leibniz was a frequent contributor. Another German mathematician (E.W. Tschirnhausen), having published in it his paper on quadratures, based on researches that Leibniz had communicated to him, Leibniz at last decided in 1684 to present to the world the more abstruse parts of his own work on the calculus. His epoch-making papers give rules of calculation without proof for rates of variation of functions and for drawing tangents to curves ... The infinitesimal calculus originated in the 17th century with the researches of Kepler, Cavalieri, Torrecelli, Fermat and Barrow, but the two independent inventors of the subject, as we understand it today, were Newton and Leibniz ... Although both Newton and Leibniz developed similar ideas, Leibniz devised a superior symbolism and his notation is now an essential feature in all presentation of the subject ... With the calculus a new era began in mathematics, and the development of mathematical physics since the 17th century would not have been possible without the aid of this powerful technique" (PMM).

London, Richard Chiswell, 1684. First Thus. First Impression. Hardback. First edition translated by Gilbert Burnet (often quoted as preferable to Ralph Robinson's). One of the most important taproot texts for modern speculative fiction and a milestone in the genre's history. A lovely recent binding, marred by loss from every leaf that has been expertly repaired but still pretty obvious. A little spotted. A rare edition. Pagination: [24], 206. First leaf is a blank, followed by the title page and then the prologue. Our previous copy had to blanks before the title page, though the collation on this copy seems correct. Utopia is one of the most important works to have influenced the field of speculative fiction. In the 500 years since its publication, there have been hundreds of imitators, and the field would be a very different landscape without it.

Includes Rene Rapin's Treatise de carmine pastorali, first published at Paris in 1659 and here appearing in English for the first time. ¶ The tradition of romanticizing the outdoors for an urban audience, which is today big business, traces its origins to these Idylls. Indeed, from Edmund Spenser to Henry David Thoreau to John Muir, Theocritus's influence on literature, and on urban dwellers' relationship with nature, is immeasurable. ¶ Engraved frontispiece of a bucolic shepherd scene (closely shaved, just barely affecting the image); woodcut frontispiece; errata on leaf i2v. Text of the Idylls is leaded, this edition likely intended for students. --- PROVENANCE: "W. Bromley" on front free endpaper. --- CONDITION: Full contemporary brown calf, rebacked in period style. ¶ Leather covering boards cracking, but consolidated; edges of first and last few leaves brittle and a bit chipped; closed tear in leaf g1, the result of a paper defect, affecting three lines of text. --- REFERENCES: ESTC R217040

ROCOLES, Jean Baptiste de.
Leyde, Jean Prins, 1684.Contemporary calf, spine gilt (spine ends sl. dam., 1 hinge sl. dam.). With engraved frontispiece, folding plan of Vienna and 10 engraved portraits. (24), 431 pp.With engraved bookplate of Albus Currus. - Jean-Baptiste de Rocoles (1620-1696) war ein französischer Historiker, der mehrfach die Religion wechselte. 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.

Quelques cahiers uniformément bruni, mouillures Édition originale de cet ouvrage précurseur de médecine légale. " D'après de Blégny, dans les règles de l'art, un rapport nécessite de : - résister aux offres des séducteurs et aux prières des amis, - tout examiner soi-même, ne pas se laisser influencer par ses collègues, - ne rien dire d'affirmatif sur les signes subjectifs, - se défier des simulations, - rendre les pronostics aussi douteux que les événements sont incertains, - marquer de la dernière précision la longueur, la largeur et la profondeur des plaies, - donner, outre le diagnostic, le pronostic, - voir si les blessures causes du procès sont la véritable cause de la mort, - marquer l'état fonctionnel du blessé en termes clairs sans mots arabes, barbares ou scholastiques. Ces recommandations nous paraissent évidentes, mais elles témoignent d'une attitude rigoureuse, "scientifique", en avance sur l'époque." (Cartier). Rare.
