London] In the Savoy: Tho. Newcomb for Samuel Lowndes over against Exeter-Exchange in the Strand., 1685. 1685 1ed Brady History of England William the Conqueror Richard II Saxons FOLIORobert Brady was a 17th-century English royalist historian who played an important role in the emergence of English history out of its medieval forms. Much of this was from his book 'A Complete History of England'. Curiously though, Brady makes controversial claims regarding English law, particularly that the Norman invasion had little to no impact on the development of English law and the feudal system. Other historians, such as James Tyrrell, published attacks on Brady and sought to denounce his views on English history.This 1685 first edition includes extensive information on William the Conqueror, King Stephen of Blois, Saxons in England, King Richard II, Simon of Montfort, Pope Innocent IV, and much, much more!Item number: #8399 Price: $950BRADY, RobertA complete history of England, from the first entrance of the Romans under the conduct of Julius Caesar, unto the end of the reign of King Henry III.

[De Soto] [Citri de la Guette, Samuel de Broe].
1685. Paris. Denys Thierry. 8vo. 12 ff., 300. Contemporary French speckled calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, red morocco title label lettered; joints renewed, else fine. Title page with minor mainly marginal toning, scattered leaves present minor toning but overall very good.- First French edition of the Relacam Verdadeira –first published in 1557, which is known in a single copy. A rare book consisting of the anonymous eyewitness’ account of De Soto’s expedition to Florida ad the Southern United States. Furthermore, the work includes the dramatic tale of Juan Ortiz, a member of the Narvaez expedition captured by the Indians and rescued by De Soto. The anonymous Portuguese original is a known in a single copy and is found at the NYPL. This is the first translation into French, made by the 17thcentury French historian Citri de la Guette, to compete with the later Florida del Ynca of Garcilasso de la Vega (published in Lisbon in 1605), considering this less well-known and historically more accurate –and considering the contemporaneity a consistent argument- relation was due for notoriety. It is the basis and inspiration for the English translation of the following year “A relation of the invasion and conquest of Florida by the Spaniards” (1686). The NUC mistakenly records an edition of 1589 (actually the 1699 reprint by Couterot). “The English translation, the first account in the English language of the settlement of California, is inferior to the French edition being "erroneous as to numbers, distances, and names of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Du Ryer translated this work out of the Arabic into French; however, it was not well-received by the Catholic Church.

Riprodusse a olio capolavori dei Carracci, del Guercino e di altri insigni pittori bolognesi. Realizzò all'acquaforte una straordinaria quantità di soggetti di ogni genere: scene di vita quotidiana, allegorie sacre e profane, satire politiche, proverbi, giochi di società. Le sue incisioni erano spesso accompagnate da brevi commenti o da poesie in dialetto bolognese.

He copied with oil painting the masterpieces of the Carracci's, of Guercino and many other Bolognese painters. He also realized with the etching technique various subjects: daily life scenes, profane and sacred allegories, satires, proverbs, party games. His engravings were often accompanied with short comments or poems written in Bolognese dialect.

With Very Great Additions Throughout the Whole Book, Never Printed in Any Other Impression. London: Printed by W. Rawlins, S. Roycroft and M. Flesher, 1685.

Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, title page, with repair to upper corner, mounted. Moderate toning to text, two small later signatures and embossed and ink library stamps to title page, brief annotations to verso. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Later edition. English and Law French in parallel columns. First published in 1527 by John Rastell, this was both the first English dictionary and first English law dictionary. It was originally written in Law French with the Latin title Expositiones Terminorum Legum Anglorumae. Later editions were produced by his son, William. Quite popular with students and lawyers due to its clarity and concision, it went through at least twenty-five editions by 1721. A final reissue appeared in 1819. As Marvin observes, it is a useful dictionary because it "reflects the common law at the close of the year-book period with much fidelity.": Legal Bibliography 599.

Though he felt it was more theoretical than practical, the anonymous author of The Law of Sewers (1726) says Callis' work is "an excellent composition" and the source "for many of [his] Informations" (iv).

ERASMUS, Desiderius
Amstelaedami: Henricum Wetstenium, 1685. 1685 1ed Praise of Folly Erasmus of Rotterdam Protestant Reform Humanism Latin"When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes." ― ErasmusIn 1509, Erasmus composed his famous essay 'In Praise of Folly' which was a satirical attack on superstitions and other unconventional traditions in European society. Since its inception in the early 16th-century, it is considered one of the most important works of the Renaissance and helped develop early stages of the Protestant Reformation.Erasmus uses satire to examine doctrine and corruption within the Catholic Church, even though Erasmus was devoted deeply to Catholicism. He concludes 'In Praise of Folly' with statements of supporting Christian Protestantism. He frequently references Greek mythological creatures and figures.This rare 17th-century edition was published in 1685 by Henry Wetstein.

WALLIS, John
London: Printed by J. Playford, for R. Davis, 1685. First edition, and a large and handsome copy, of "Wallis' last great mathematical book" (DSB). It combined a full account of the contemporary knowledge of algebra and its history, "a feat never previously attempted by any author" (DSB); it also contained many topics we would not now expect to find in a book on algebra, notably the first publication of any of Newton's work on infinite series, and the first attempt to give a graphical representation of complex numbers. "Of the 100 chapters, the first fourteen trace the history of the subject up to the time of Viète, with emphasis on the development of mathematical notation. The subsequent practical introduction to algebra (chapters 15-63) was based almost entirely on Oughtred's 'Clavis mathematicae,' Harriot's 'Artis analyticae praxis,' and 'An Introduction to Algebra' (1668), Thomas Brancker's translation of J. H. Rahn's 'Teutsche Algebra' (1659), with numerous additions by John Pell, Rahn's former teacher . . . After an insertion concerning the application of algebra to geometry and geometrical interpretations of algebraic facts (chapters 64-72, including an attempt to give a representation of imaginary numbers), Wallis devoted the final twenty-eight chapters to a subject that one would hardly look for in a book on algebra today: a discussion of the methods of exhaustion and of indivisibles, with reference to the 'Arithmetica infinitorum' (1656) . . . The 'Algebra' also includes an exposition of the method of infinite series and the first printed account . . . of some of N … [Click Below for Full Description]

Endpapers sl dusty, few blemishes. Few marginal spots but text generally clean. Bookplate of Frederick Polhill of Howbury Hall, Bedford. Overall a G-Nr VG copy of this interesting work which was a reply to Thomas Burnet's "Theory of the Earth" which was first published in Latin in 1681 then in English in 1684. The second part appeared in 1689 (Latin) and 1690 (English). In the work, Burnet suggested a hollow earth with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He calculated the amount of water on Earth's surface, stating there was not enough to account for the Flood. Burnet was to some extent influenced by Descartes who had written on the creation of the earth in Principia philosophiae (1644). Croft's criticism includes an accusation that Burnet was following the Second Epistle of Peter rather than the Book of Genesis. During the 1690s John Beaumont and Johann Caspar Eisenschmidt picked up on Burnet's ideas. They engendered a great deal of controversy at the time, and Burnet defended himself against selected critics, John Keill and Erasmus Warren. Isaac Newton was an admirer of Burnet's theological approach to geological processes. Newton even wrote to Burnet, suggest … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRELOT GUILLAUME-JOSEPH.
Paris: 1685. GRELOT GUILLAUME-JOSEPH. Relation d'un voyage de Constantinople. Enrichie de plans levez par l'auteur sur les lieux, & des figures de tout ce qu'il y'a de plus remarquable dans cette ville. Présentée au Roy. Paris, Pierre Rocolet, 1685. In-12 (160x100mm), relié plein veau époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné, pièce de titre. 6ff.n.ch. (titre, dédicace à Louis XIV, Avis au lecteur), 372pp., avec 13 planches dépliantes (plans, vues, costumes) , reliure de l'époque. Planche panoramique de Constantinople et de Serrail, très rare. Bel exemplaire, charnières faibles. Seconde édition, rare. Cette importante relation semble bien être la première à comporter des élévations et des plans précis des principaux monuments de Constantinople, dont Saint-Sophie. Le dessinateur Grelot (vers 1630 - après 1680), originaire de Melun, vécut en effet à Constantinople avant d'accompagner Chardin dans son voyage en Perse en 1672, puis le voyageur italien Ambrosio Bembo ; pour l'un et pour l'autre, il réalisa des dessins et des vues du parcours. Déguisé en indigène, il avait obtenu un accès facile aux mosquées, et ses dessins en acquièrent toute leur valeur : ils constituent la première représentation sérieuse de ces monuments. Il était revenu en France en 1675. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
