SHAKESPEARE, William
[R. Bentley, E. Brewster, R. Chiswell, and H. Herringman], 1685. 'O, For a Muse of Fire': a single play extracted from the last of the great folio printings of Shakespeare's plays, the Fourth Folio of 1685. Henry V has been bound during the twentieth century in quarter tan buckram over brown buckram with details of the play penned on the spine. Modern bookplate of 'C.C. Waghorn' to the first pastedown with endpapers of a piece with the rebind. The text block measures 34x21.5cm in size and the play runs complete from Ii2 (the final page of Henry IV part II) to Ll2 recto; the verso has the first page of Henry VI Pt I: pp87-112. The text is browned and frequently stained, the first leaf only has several very short closed tears to the foreedge where it has been repeatedly turned. A detailed examination also reveals: old paper repair to closed tear at tail of the first leaf, Ii2; 3mm hole over 'My Lord', opening of Act I.Sc.1; small rectangle of paper missing from head of Ii3, not affecting text; short closed tear at head of Ii4; short closed tear at tail of Ii5 and Ii6; two short tears at tail of Kk4; short closed tear near gutter at tail of Ll2 (recto has the conclusion of play). All the leaves are from the first state of the play with rules surrounding the whole text. It is always a thrill to handle one of Shakespeare's major plays in a seventeenth century folio printing and this is no exception, tracing as it does one of the foundational narratives of English identity which culminates in the victory of Hal, now Henry V, at Agincourt. This after all is the play that gav … [Click Below for Full Description]

[2 blank], [1], [1 blank], [4], 310; [1], [1 blank], [4], 108 pp. Second French translation of the first English edition of 1672, which was entitled The anatomy of vegetables begun by the English botanist, physician and microscopist Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712). The present edition is sometimes erroneously said to have been translated from that edition. Grew, together with Malphigi, is regarded as one of the founders of the science of plant anatomy. The Anatomie is especially notable for its descriptions of plant structure, but Grew also went further. He described the differences between stem and root and correctly hypothesized that the stamen, with its pollen, is the male sex organ and that the pistil corresponds to the sex organ of the female. Although this volume contains two texts on plants and their processes, it also contains the Recueil, written by Nehemias Grew, Robert Boyle and some other doctors and physicians.

LA HIRE, Philippe de.
Sectiones conicae in novem libros distributae, ...Paris, Etienne Michallet, 1685. Large folio (38 x 26 cm). With a charming woodcut headpiece at the beginning of the main text, hundreds of woodcut diagrams in the text. 19th-century boards (ca. 1820?). [8], 249, [1] pp. First and only early edition, in Latin, of a comprehensive and influential text book on conic sections, discussing the standard classical Greek work of Apollonius, the projective methods of Desargues and the application of Cartesian analytical geometry, by the artist, mathematician and astronomer Philippe de La Hire, "among the best of the followers of Desargues and Descartes" (DSB). It "seemed to be the last word on the subject" and La Hire's "pre-eminence in this field" was still acknowledged in 1738 (Kemp, p. 121). La Hire here provides the clearest and most fully developed presentation of the projective principles pioneered by Desargues, whose work became generally known through La Hire's further development and improved presentation of his ideas. With a few leaves slightly browned (2 severely) or foxed (the last leaf extensively) but otherwise in very good condition and largely untrimmed, with many deckles intact and large margins. Binding rubbed and spine damaged. Honeyman coll. 1886; Kemp, The science of art, pp. 221-222 & passim; for La Hire: DSB VII, pp. 576-579.

DÜRER, Albrecht and Marcantonio RAIMONDI.
[Life of the Virgin Mary]. [Bologna?, ca. 1685/90 (engraved Bologna, ca. 1506)]. 1mo (40 x 29 cm). A series of 17 very large numbered engraved prints. Each with Dürer's AD monogram and the last also with Raimondi's MAF monogram. Late 18th-century boards, in a paste-paper slipcase with an engraved label showing the coat of arms of the Count of Somaglia, (Don Gaetano?) Cavazzi in Milan. 17 engraved ll. A complete series of 17 engraved prints of the life of the Virgin Mary, printed in Italy ca. 1685/90 from the original copper plates engraved ca. 1506 by Marcantonio Raimondi (ca. 1480-ca. 1527/34) after the 17 woodcuts that had so far been completed of what was to be a series of 20 by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528). Together with Lucas van Leyden, Dürer and Raimondi were the great pioneers of 16th-century graphic art, and Raimondi in particular established the copperplate print as the medium of choice for reproducing works of art from other media. The series is important both as a high point in the history of art and engraving and for its religious content, but also for the views it gives of life ca. 1500.The coat of arms on the slipcase matches Rietstap's arms for the Milan family Cavazzi, Counts of Somaglia. In very good condition and with large margins. Binding somewhat worn and with a few cracks and minor stains. Bartsch 621-637 (also in The Illustrated Bartsch, vol. XXVII); BDPI 1630611; Delaborde 235-251; Shoemaker et al., The engravings of Marcantonio Raimondi (1981), pp. 22 et al.

Very rare first and only German edition of a collection of views of the fountains of Rome by Giovanni Battista Falda, first published in Italian in 4 parts from 1675 to 1685. The present German edition was issued simultaneously with a Latin edition by the same printer and publisher. It is one of a series of Sandrart editions of collections of plates first published by the de'Rossi firm in Rome. The 42 engraved plates are beautifully and skillfully designed and engraved. All show fountains, mostly in Rome's city squares with an entourage of people. Most follow the original plates in parts 1 and 2 of De'Rossi's Italian edition of Falda's Le fontane di Roma, ca. 1675-1676, but plate I was newly made for this edition; pl. XV is follows one in part 3 of Le fontane and pl. XXXXII, a view of the Villa Pamphili in Rome, follows one in another de'Rossi production.

[MANUSCRIPT - FORTIFICATION].
Traité de fortification.[Northern Germany?, ca. 1685/1700?]. 4to & small folio (23 x 18 cm). Manuscript in French, written in black ink on paper in an easily readable cursive hand, with the title in a pen and ink decorated cartouche, about 45 pen and ink drawings (14 full-page and 8 larger folding, 2 of the folding ones in red and black ink with coloured washes, one of the colour folding leaves 36 x 27 cm), mostly showing fortification plans. Contemporary or near-contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine. [1], [3 blank], 164 pp., ll. 165-171, [172], pp. 173-197, 197 [bis], 198-289, [24 blank, partly numbered]. An extensive manuscript manual on fortification in French, discussing the design, construction and defence of a wide variety of regular and irregular fortifications, gates, bridges, etc., and with chapters on attacking fortifications, mines and other subjects. It is extensively illustrated, including many full-page or folding fortification plans, with one folding fortification plan and one folding cross-section of fortifications in colour.The text notes in several places that it is based on the work of Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707), so it was almost certainly written after he began to publish his work on fortification in 1673, and probably no earlier than the 1680s, when he fully developed his methods and published more detailed works on fortification. Although written in French it seems likely to come from northern Germany.Much of the paper is slightly browned, and the ink has left a shadow on the back of the pages or the facing pages.

Op ende jegens de ongefondeerde praetensien en sustenuen van de churfurstelycke Brandenburgse Africaensche Compagnie.[The Netherlands, 1685]. Folio. Modern black cloth with gilt title on spine, marbled endpapers. [6], 31, 45, [2] pp. Very rare first and only edition of a collection of official documents, sent to Berlin by the Dutch West-India Company (WIC) arguing that their monopoly for trade in West-Africa was also valid for foreign ships and private trading in general.Inspired by the economic success of the Dutch Republic, the Elector of Brandenburg founded the "Brandenburgisch-Afrikanische Compagnie" (BAC) in 1682 to partake in the profitable trade in gold, ivory and slaves from West-Africa. The Dutch WIC, a direct competitor, argued against the validity of the Brandenburg trade.The core piece is a treatise by Johannes Althusius, the solicitor-general of the WIC (pp. 1-31). Defending the interest, legal structure and jurisdiction of the WIC, he refers to the founding premises of the WIC (and VOC), the history of international trade, and international and natural law, based partly on Hugo Grotius, De mare liberum (pp. 23-25 ), which makes his treatise also very important for the development of international law in the second half of the 17th century.

Folio (32.5 x 20 cm). With 17 engraved figures (mostly fortification plans) labelled A-R on plates of various sizes, mostly double-page or folding. Contemporary or near contemporary vellum. [16], 181, [3] pp. Fine first edition of the most important work on fortification by Menno van Coehoorn (1641-1704), Frisian artillery officer and military engineer, which introduced a new Dutch manner of fortification and siege warfare, covering both defence and offence, and challenging the approach that had been established by Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) in France. Though developed in part to suit the level terrain of the Low Countries, his fortification techniques and his more active deployment of troops in the defence of fortifications revolutionized warfare internationally and the present book was translated into English, French, German and even Russian. Coehoorn joined the infantry as a teenager and established his reputation fighting against Louis XIV of France in the 1670s, when he developed new artillery techniques and equipment. He played a major role in designing and building Dutch fortifications.With a 1704 owner's inscription of Assuerus Vegelin van Claerbergen (1687-1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacques Chaussé
Amsterdam: Abraham Wolfgang, 1685. MARRIAGE MANUAL ¶ 300 p. | 12mo | A-M^12 N^6 | 139 x 79 mm ¶ One of at least four editions of this marriage manual published in Paris and Amsterdam the same year--its first year of publication--and followed by several more through at least a 1735 Dutch translation. One of these 1685 editions, that from Pierre Mortier, may represent a separate issue of the present. ¶ Especially at a time when divorce was not an option, marriage was one of the most important decisions in one's life. In addition to friends and family, marriage manuals like this one offered yet another source of advice, as they still do today. Some were intended for women, but perhaps most, like ours, were written for a male audience. This is made plain by the preface, in which the author promises the work to "provide principles for learning to speak well with and properly judge women" (leaf A2v; translated). The work is rich in classical, biblical, and patristic references. None will mistake it for a libertine manifesto. Consistent with other marriage manuals of the time, some of which compared teaching a wife obedience to breaking a horse, the author "subjects wives to the absolute authority of their husband" (Zuerner). ¶ While it may be cold comfort, "seventeenth-century marriage manuals offered a more positive assessment of marriage than had been common in Medieval Europe" (Tuttle). To be sure, the author does make some overtures to equality among husband and wife, sometimes offering advice that could just as well be given today.

First illustrated edition of La Fontaine's collection of naughty and bawdy tales in verse, first published in a somewhat different form and without illustrations in 1665. Romeyn de Hooghe's vivid engravings, which are as famous and iconic as the tales themselves, influenced book illustration in France and the Low Countries through the following century (says Gordon N. Ray). According to Brunet, three separate issues of the 1685 edition can be distinguished, but our copy is a bibliographical anomaly. Our part 1 exhibits points attributed to both second and third issues, implying a transitional state. Part 2 is Brunet's second issue. The plates are crisp and fresh. Nouvelle éd. enrichie de tailles-douces. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Tryon, Thomas (1634-1703)]; Philotheus Physiologus (pseudonym)
London: Printed and sold by Andrew Sowle, in the Holloway-Lane, near Shoreditch, 1685. Octavo (14.5 x 9.5cm.), [12], 96, 91-232, [6] pages; collation: A6, B-Q8, R2 (I3 signed I2). Sheet A/R should have had R1 and R2 as A7 and A8. It was wrongly imposed so that A5r and A6v were perfected by pages of R and vice versa. The error was corrected by pasting leaves from half another copy of the sheet over the erroneous pages. Sheet I was similarly mis-imposed, but instead of using parts of a complete sheet, a half-forme was printed on one side only and pasted over I5v, 6r, 7v, 8r. Text and register are continuous despite pagination error. AAS records indicates their copy has pagination and collation the same as this one. ESTC cites this pagination and offers a variant (2d issue?) with pagination: [12], 97, 92-232, [6] pages (i.e. H1r is numbered 97 and H1v is numbered 92). Table of contents. Publisher's advertisement [6 pages] at rear, for two other titles by Tryon. Caption title (page 1) Every good house-wife made a doctor, &c.

He was a self-made man with rural roots as a shepherd (he apparently sold two sheep to pay for his move to London), and spent time in London in a hat factory.

Op ende jegens de ongefondeerde praetensien en sustenuen van de churfurstelycke Brandenburgse Africaensche Compagnie.[The Netherlands, 1685]. Folio. Modern black cloth with gilt title on spine, marbled endpapers. [6], 31, 45, [2] pp. Very rare first and only edition of a collection of official documents, sent to Berlin by the Dutch West-India Company (WIC) arguing that their monopoly for trade in West-Africa was also valid for foreign ships and private trading in general.Inspired by the economic success of the Dutch Republic, the Elector of Brandenburg founded the "Brandenburgisch-Afrikanische Compagnie" (BAC) in 1682 to partake in the profitable trade in gold, ivory and slaves from West-Africa. The Dutch WIC, a direct competitor, argued against the validity of the Brandenburg trade.The core piece is a treatise by Johannes Althusius, the solicitor-general of the WIC (pp. 1-31). Defending the interest, legal structure and jurisdiction of the WIC, he refers to the founding premises of the WIC (and VOC), the history of international trade, and international and natural law, based partly on Hugo Grotius, De mare liberum (pp. 23-25 ), which makes his treatise also very important for the development of international law in the second half of the 17th century.

RECHENBERG, Adam
Lipsiae: Johannis Grossii, 1685. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Adam Rechenberg was a 17th-century Lutheran theologian and writer who published a commentary on the Augsburg Confession.

FALCONER, John
London: printed for Daniel Brown, 1685. London: printed for Daniel Brown,, 1685. Guide to cryptography Octavo (171 x 109 mm). Contemporary blind-ruled speckled sheep, unlettered, edges speckled brown. Complete with initial and terminal blanks. Neat early ownership initials to title page, residue of removed bookplate to front inner board. Light wear at extremities and couple of patches of loss to sheep, inner hinges a little tender with sheep holding firm but cords gone, some very faint staining at fore edge of pages else contents crisp and unmarked. A very good copy. First edition of this early work of cryptography. Falconer states in his epistle to the reader that he writes Cryptomenysis because he finds the subject diverting, though his dedication to the Earl of Middleton gives the work a political flavour: he serves Charles II and hopes to keep the royal family safer with unbreakable cyphers. Alongside cyphers, various methods of concealing messages are unveiled, including Egyptian hieroglyphs and finger alphabets. He considers methods of the ancients, including tattooing a message on skin and painting over it, or upon a shaved head and allowing the hair to grow. At the end Falconer makes clear his debt to previous cryptographers with an analysis of the cryptographic and steganographic writings of Johannes Trithemius (1462-1516), a final flourish of esotericism. This copy is from the celebrated computing library of Erwin Tomash (1921-2012), with his booklabel to the front pastedown. A nice provenance - in 1950 Tomash joined the Engineering Research Associates, founde … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALLIS, John.
London: Printed by John Playford, for Richrd Davis, Bookseller, in the University of Oxford, 1685. First edition, an exceptional copy bound in contemporary red morocco gilt, 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 Newton's work on the binomial theorem (Ch. 85) and infinite series (Ch. 91), and the first attempt to give a graphical representation of complex numbers (Ch. 67), usually thought to date from the early 19th century. "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 [J. H. Rahn's] An Introduction to Algebra (1668) ... 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 discussion of the methods of exhaustion and of indivisibles, with reference to [Wallis'] Arithmetica infinitorum (1656)" (DSB), Wallis's most important work in which he arithmetized Cavalieri's method of indivisibles.

COURTILZ DE SANDRAS, Gatien.
The Hague, Henri van Bulderen, 1685. Duodecimo (155 x 93 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, raised bands, title gilt direct to the second compartment, within dog-tooth and double fillet panel, floral spray lozenge to the others within similar panel, scrolled corner-pieces, later black morocco library labels, initials "a.s." at the head, press mark "M. 1553" at the tail, gilt foliate edge-roll, edges sprinkled red and blue. Lightly rubbed at the extremities, corners bumped, head- and tail-caps chipping, front joint just starting head and tail, front free and first blank coming loose, light browning throughout, a very good copy. First edition. "Impressive and influential" manual, drawing on the author's experiences during the Franco-Dutch War, 1672-8 (Rowlands, The Dynastic State and the Army under Louis XIV, p. 187). Courtilz de Sandras (1644-1712) joined the army around 1660 serving initially in a musketeer regiment, eventually rising to the rank of captain of cavalry. He left military service in 1678 and set himself up as a "polygraphe", a miscellaneous author, prolific and reckless, always operating on the fringes of the licit, remembered for his pseudo-mémoires, apocryphal autobiographies of the recently famous. In 1686 he set up the Mercure historique et politique in the Hague with publisher van Bulderen, and by 1692 he was living at three different addresses in Paris and drawing considerable attention from the police. In April 1693 he was thrown in the Bastille and remained there for 6 years. It was here that encountered Besmaux, an old companion of the famous musketeer … [Click Below for Full Description]
