        A treatise against drunkennesse: described in its nature, kindes effects and causes, especially that of drinking of healths. To which are added, two short sermons of S. Augustine's, De tempore. Faithfully translated, by Matthew Scrivener.

      London: printed for Charles Brown bookseller in Cambridge 1685 - 12mo., (12) + 175 + (3) + 177-193 + (3)pp., including the final errata leaf (this with short closed tear, no loss), contemporary calf gilt, neatly rebacked. A very good crisp copy. First edition. A fierce attack on the moral and social side of drunkenness, with an analysis of causes and consequences. '. It is as odious for a woman to be drunk once a year, as for a man once a week; and for a youth once a quarter, as for a man once a day. But how monstrous is their condition . who shall make their shame their glory, imagining (according to their shallownesse) that it is masculine in women, and manly in children or striplings [to drink]'. The vice of drunkenness, claims the author, was 'an over-grown monster . in this present age'. Matthew Scrivener (1622?-1688), a Church of England clergyman, probably born at Sibton in Suffolk, was educated at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, and in 1666 became vicar of Haslingfield. He published several theological works. In his will he left a number of bequests to the poor and rather more substantial ones to his college. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies. Published according to the true Original Copies. Unto which is added seven plays never before printed in folio.; Fourth Folio

      London: Printed for H. Herringman, E. Brewster, and R. Bentley, at the Anchor in the New Exchange, The Crane in St. Paul's Church-Yard, and in Russel-Street Covent-Garden, London. 1685. 4th folio, 1st issue, of Shakespeare's complete plays, the paramount work in all of English literature. Fine 19th century full blind-tooled morocco, gilt titled, gilt edges, satisfying condition by any standard, with no repair, a nicely executed, beautiful and distinctive antique, but here's your scrupulously dissected examination: Portrait and title page lightly foxed, minor chips and short tears to some blank margins (and only the blank margins), a dozen tiny pin holes (mostly rust), stains to 25 or so pages, Ccc6 with the margin slightly miscut by 1/16" at 2 corners (imaginably supplied from another genuine copy, but not discernable by any physical evidence), a paper flaw just under the upper rule of Ii2, but don't be distracted. This is (withal) a complete and perfect folio, tall (14 1/16"), wide (8 15/16"), and read the next sentence with attention, because you won't read it often. Far beyond the usual, every single page, and every single letter of text is present and valid, with no facsimile, and (even more remarkably) no (zero) leaves have been remargined or extended. The provenance is soothing. Ex-Elizabeth Young, the initial owner, with her ink signature to the title page, a few letters rusted and above the signature there are 2 accompanying stains. Ex-Thomas Jefferson McKee (bookplate) sold at his auction (Anderson's, NY, April 30, 1901, lot 2602), and the McKee sale was a spectacular one, featuring rarities that have become impossibilities (for example, he had 529 English quarto plays printed before 1700). And that connects this folio to a strictly applied quality standard that was high 110 years ago, being once a part of the greatest American library auctioned up until that time. Collation: O2, A4, A-Y6, Z4, BB-ZZ6, *AAA-DDD6, EEE8, AAA-ZZZ6, AAAA-BBBB6, CCCC2, 458 leaves with the usual mispaginations. References: Wing S 2915. Greg III 1119. Bartlett 123. Pforzheimer 910. Jaggard 497. Near fine.

        Circe, A Tragedy. As it is Acted At His Royal Highness the Duke of York's Theatre. By Charles D'Avenant, L.L.D. The Second Edition

      1685  Quarto, 8.5 x 6.25 inches. Second edition. A2, B-H4, I1. This copy is dirty, with some tears with loss and staining. It is bound in tattered paper boards. D'Avenant wrote this play when he was nineteen years old. He inherited some interest in the theater from his father, the poet and dramatist, Sir William D'Avenant (1606-1668). A political economist, the writing of this play was an anomaly for Charles D'Avenant, whose more acclaimed works are concerned with governmental budgets during wartime and the balance of trade with the far-flung British colonies.

        Lima, Ciudad de los Reyes, Corte y Emporio del Imperio Peruano, murada según la arquitectura militar y planta moderna tiene de circunvalación nueve millas en que no se comprehenden sus arrabales. Joseph Mulder fecit 168?

      1685 - 36.8 x 52 cm. Muy buen ejemplar del primer plano publicado de Lima, dibujado por el padre mercedario Pedro Nolasco Mere en 1685, unos de los mejores artistas del virreinato del Perú, y grabado por el flamenco Joseph Mulder en Amberes en 1688. El mapa fue impreso para ilustrar la obra escrita por Francisco de Echave y Assu como homenaje a la beatificación de San Toribio Alfonso de Mogrovejo en 1679, segundo arzobispo de Lima, titulada: La estrella de Lima convertida en sol sobre sus tres coronas, el B. Toribio Alfonso Mogrobexo, su segundo Arzobispo celebrado con epitalamios sacros y solemnes cultos por la Iglesia Metropolitana de Lima: descripción sacropolítica de las grandezas de Lima, y compendio histórico eclesiástico de su Santa Iglesia Metropolitna / que describe D. Francisco de Echave y Assu. El libro también incluyó una minuciosa descripción de Lima, así como una historia eclesiástica de la diócesis. Al parecer se imprimieron pocas copias del mapa, ya que éste casi siempre falta. Circunstancia que quizá se explique por el hecho de que el libro se publicó en Lima y el mapa en Flandes. El autor del mapa es un francés conocido como Pedro Nolasco Mere, quien llegó a Lima en 1663 como artista y grabador. Fue fundador de la Orden de la Merced y en 1669 tomó el hábito y el nombre de Pedro Nolasco. Juan Gunther Doering menciona en su artículo Planos de Lima 1613-1983 que al padre Mere “se le debe la más bella iconografía limeña del siglo XVII: una Santa Rosa de Lima, en 1670, para la obra de Meneses Arce”. En 1685, mientras la ciudad levantaba sus murallas “el padre Nolasco Mere grabó dos sucesivos planos de Lima amurallada para mostrar al Consejo de Guerra en España lo que aquí se hacía”, indica Doering. El primer plano, que corresponde a nuestra copia, coincide con el proyecto del presbítero flamenco Jean Raymond Coninck, quien había sido contratado por los limeños para diseñar las fortificaciones de la ciudad. Este primer mapa de Mere deja ver la magnitud del proyecto inicial, con sus fosos amplios y sus sofisticados baluartes. Al final, por razones presupuestales, el gobierno limeño decidió desarrollar un proyecto de menor envergadura. El mapa incluye una leyenda en la que se relacionan 61 edificios importantes, entre los que se cuentan colegios, parroquias, monasterios y conventos. Joseph Mulder ornamentó los contornos con imágenes de las figuras de los santos limeños y con animales. Así, encontramos a Santa Rosa de Santa María, el Beato Toribio Mogrobexo, S. Iván Evangelista y el B. Francisco Solano, acompañados por el escudo de armas de la ciudad y varias representaciones de flora y fauna. Echave quiso que Lima fuera concebida como un “paraíso occidental” y por eso incorporó animales exóticos en el diseño del mapa, como una vicuña, un armadillo, un tucán y unos pumas. La presencia de un león y de un dromedario en el grabado se explica por la falta de descripción precisa de los animales americanos que no se conocían en Europa; así que Mulder se inspiró en el dromedario para representar la vicuña (otro camélido), y en un león para representar a un puma (también llamado león de montaña). Éste fue el primer mapa impreso de la ciudad de Lima y se convirtió en un modelo copiado numerosamente en toda Europa, por lo menos hasta 1750, año en el que se publicó el segundo mapa de Mere, por Jorge Juan y Antonio de Ulloa. Este mapa es sumamente escaso, en los últimos 50 años sólo se ha reportado la venta de dos copias del mismo. Destaca la excelente calidad de la impresión de este ejemplar.

        Plano scenographico de la Ciudad de los Reyes o Lima Capital de los Reynos del Perú situada en 12g. 2m. 31s. de Latitud austral, y en 299g. 27m. 7 2/3s. de Longitud al Occidente del Meridiano de Tenerife. Demostrada en la forma que tenía antes que se arruinase con los últimos terremotos.

      1685 - 1748 1685 - 38 x 53 cm. Plano de la ciudad amurallada de Lima con sus plazas, calles, edificios y zonas de cultivo. Cuenta con dos leyendas que relacionan los sitios más representativos indicados en el plano con números. Se puede apreciar la ciudad como lucía antes de los terremotos que la desolaron. Lo más llamativo es su increíble nivel de detalle, los sitios de mayor relevancia están dibujados con mucha precisión. Fue realizado por los marinos Jorge Juan de Santacilia y Antonio de Ulloa en 1748, en una obra en cuatro volúmenes titulada: Relacion historica del viaje a la America Meridional: hecho de orden de S. Mag. para medir algunos grados de meridiano terrestre, y venir por ellos en conocimiento de la verdadera figura, y magnitud de la tierra, con otras varias observaciones astronomicas, y fisicas. Esta obra fue publicada en España como producto de las observaciones y mediciones que estos dos marinos hicieran durante su estancia en Sudamérica como parte de la Misión Geodésica Francesa. En realidad, este mapa se inspiró casi en su totalidad en el segundo plano mejorado de Pedro Nolasco Mere, realizado en 1685. Durante el siglo XVIII, las políticas del reformismo borbónico concebían a la ciudad como una totalidad física y política. Este imaginario urbano ilustrado buscaba articular ciudad y entorno rural procurando con ello el orden y el control de ambos espacios. Lo anterior tuvo consecuencias para la cartografía, ya que ésta se convirtió en el instrumento ideal para la representación de la ciudad en conjunto, incluyendo su entorno rural, el litoral, los bordes, los arrabales, etc. Más que un documento técnico, este mapa constituye un excelente ejemplo de microcartografía colonial, pues se ocupó de mostrar no sólo el centro urbano, sino también sus murallas, el barrio de San Lázaro, el Cerro de San Cristóbal, el entorno rural, el litoral y los distintos caminos de Lima hacia el norte y el este. Se trata pues del primer documento cartográfico en representar la ciudad en conjunto. Sin embargo, la adición del barrio de San Lázaro se hizo al parecer con premura, pues no corresponde con precisión a la geografía de la zona. La presencia de los marinos españoles en el virreinato se explica porque, en 1732 seguía habiendo desacuerdos relativos a la forma exacta del planeta. Por esta razón, la Academia de Ciencias de Francia, con financiamiento del rey Luis XV, emprendió dos expediciones (una en el ártico y otra en la zona ecuatorial en el Virreinato del Perú) cuyo objetivo consistió en realizar la medición de la longitud de un grado meridiano terrestre para zanjar la mencionada controversia. De esta forma, en 1735 se estableció la Misión Geodésica Francesa, expedición científica dirigida por Pierre Bouguer. Tanto por razones científicas como para controlar las actividades de los especialistas franceses, Antonio de Ulloa y Jorge Juan de Santacilia se unieron a la expedición. En 1740, Juan y Ulloa tuvieron que interrumpir sus observaciones científicas debido a que el virrey los convocó a servicio para defender las costas del Pacífico, principalmente Guayaquil y El Callao, ante los ataques del comodoro inglés George Anson. Ambos marinos patrullaron las costas de Chile, circunstancia que aprovecharon para realizar mediciones y observaciones, y levantar planos de las costas, bahías y ciudades por las que pasaron. El mapa presenta una rasgadura en el margen izquierdo que llega a la parte impresa. Fue restaurado profesionalmente.

        De Urinis et Pulsibus, De Missione Sanguinis, De Febribus, De Morbis Capitis, et Pectoris.

      Francofurti & Lipsiæ,: Sumptibus Johannis Grossii, 1685., 1685. Small 4to. [32], 688, [32] pp. Title printed in red & black, index. Original full vellum. Early engraved heraldic bookplate "In Promptu. Trotter family library, probably by John Trotter, d. 1718, who was a book collector. This copy is signed "T. Burnet" and bears Trotter's [fl.1690-1707] typical inscription, "Cost vt. 18th at Dr. Burnet's auction by Alexr. Hendersone, Ed-. Feb. 1705. Rare. THOMAS BURNET'S COPY, WITH HIS SIGNATURE. First issued in 1683, this is the second edition of Bellini's classic work on chemical analysis of urine. "Bellini realized the value of the urine as an aid to diagnosis and insisted on its chemical analysis in pathological condition." - Garrison and Morton 1462. Note: In the 1943 first edition of Garrison and Morton, item 3624 gave this 1685 issue as the first edition, an error that was corrected in the second edition of this authority. The work also contains Bellini's valuable studies on the pulse, the most important diseases of the head and chest, observations on insanity and epilepsy, a section on palpitation of the heart, etc. Johannes Bohn contributed the preface. "Bellini's most important book, De urinis etpulsibus etmissione sanguinis, was published in Bologna in 1683. Now very rare, this 606 page volume represented the first significant attempt to frame medical theory in terms of iatromechanism. In some respects, it was an extension of Borelli's De motu animalium, published 3 years earlier." - Bruce Fye, "Lorenzo Bellini," [Series: Profiles in Cardiology]. Clin. Cardiol. 20, 181-182 (1997). Bellini (1643-1703), Italian anatomist and physiologist of Florence, was a student of Borelli and Redi, to whom this work is dedicated, and became professor of philosophy and theoretical medicine at Pisa, later the same year (age 21) professor of anatomy as well. Bellini, whose interests center chiefly in physiology and pathology, was a tireless investigator and keen observer, noted for the elegance and clarity of his literary style. He did outstanding work on the structure of the kidney and described calcification of the coronary arteries in addition to the studies described in the above work. Provenance: Thomas Burnet (ca.1635-1715) - sold Feb. 1705 at auction - John Trotter [bookplate]. See: Stephen Ferguson, Princeton University [Nov. 10, 2011 blog].

        A New Systeme of Geography, designed in a most plain and easy method, for the better understanding of that science. Accommodated with new mapps, of all the . countreys in the whole world. With geographical tables explaining the divisions in each mapp. By John Seller, hydrographer to the king]

      Sold at his shop on the West-side of the Royal Exchange, [London] 1685 - (5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches). Letterpress text: 1-80 pp.only (of 112pp). Engraved additional title, uncoloured engraved plate with attached volvelle, 30 hand-coloured double-page engraved maps, 28 (of 29) leaves of engraved text (printed recto only, as issued). (Engraved title cut to plate edge and neatly laid down). Contemporary mottled calf, expertly rebacked to style with the spine in five compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second Provenance: early indistinct inscription on front pastedown (concerning original cost of the book, see note below). The first edition of John Seller's very rare work: one of the earliest English world atlases. The letterpress title-page confirms that this is the 1685 first edition of Seller's New Systeme. . Lord Wardington noted that "Seller's pocket atlases are among the earliest 'English' world atlases; they are superior in execution and content to contemporary rivals, such as Jonas Moore's A New Systeme of the Mathematicks (London, 1681) or Morden's Geography Rectified (London, 1680, with later editions) and are appreciably rarer, the several editions of the New Systeme extant in only a handful of copies." This assessment is confirmed by OCLC who list only 6 copies of this first edition (Clements Library; Yale, University of Alberta, British Library [2 copies], Bayerische Staatsbibliothek), and by auction records. No copies are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty-five years. Only five copies of any edition of this work are listed as having sold. Lord Wardington's 1695 edition was withdrawn from the sale and presented to the British Library by Lady Wardington. Seller seems to have sold the atlas in much the same way as the great Dutch composite atlases of the period, as Lord Wardington notes "the New Systeme seems to have been made up to order," a maximum of 110 pages (numbered 1-30, 33-112) of text is recorded. The number of maps varies: one of "the British Library's examples originally contained twenty-seven maps (four are missing, and one extra added), while the Library of Congress' example contains fifty-one maps." Contemporary confirmation of Lord Wardington's suspicions seems to be given here by the early inscription apparently shows that the cost of the book was calculated according to the number of maps it contained, along with the 'desc.' or number of text leaves that the purchaser chose to accompany the maps. A comparison with Rodney Shirley's description of one of the British Library copies (T.Sell-7a, which has only 23 maps) shows that the present example has 11 maps not in the BL copy, but also does not include four maps which are: one of 'The XVII Provinces', a second of 'the city of Hamburgh', a third of 'Lesser Tartaria' and a fourth 'Morea'. The fullest listing of maps which were offered for inclusion in the various editions of A New Systeme is given by Phillips (vol.IV, # 4267) where a numbered list of the 58 maps in the Library of Congress's 1690 edition is given. A comparison with that list shows that the present copy includes the following maps (identified by number): 1-3, 7-11, 13-14, 16-21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 30-34 and 51. The Phillips list does not include the 'A New Mapp of the World' or 'A Mapp of the World Shewing what a Clock it is', 'A Mapp of the Kingdom of England and Wales', 'Spaine' - all of which are also in the present atlas.

From the preface: ?in a Nation where all other Arts and Sciences do flourish, and abound in so great measure: No excuse ought to suffice in any well-bred person for his ignorance in Geography; this being a Science, and I may truly say, the only Science that comes within the capacity of all Mankind, whether old or young, Men or Women; for anyone may easily attain to the knowledge of it that has but a Memory, a few Maps and a little Method? A comprehensive epitaph of Peregrine Clifford Chamererlayne can be found on a monument still standing in All Saints Church, Chelsea. According to Thomas Faulkner's An Historical & Topographical description of Chelsea, it translates thus:?a naval officer, eldest son of Edward Chamberlayne, Doctor of Law, born in the Hague, Jan 22 1660, who was well skilled in the learned languages and liberal sciences; also in municipal law; but especially in navigation. He visited the four parts of the world; and after having deserved well both of his king and country, by fighting valiantly against the French and the Indians, he died sixth of November 1691. This monument, not to be violated with impunity, his sorrowful father caused to be erected.? Cherry-Garrard was a member of the Northern Party on Robert Falcon Scott's fatalTerra Nova Expedition in 1910. From the index of the modern names of countries, provinces etc: ?Terra Incognita or Magellanica, a vast Country toward the South Pole.? Wing C1861

        A gli Illustrissimi Signori Senatori di Bologna. Per Gli Pittori &c.''

      In Bologna, per Giacomo Monti, 1685, - Fascicolo di 2 bifolii (titolo bianco al verso, pp. 1-6; tracce di pieghe), in bella carta marmorizzata settecentesca. Conservato in bell'astuccio in mezza pelle e carta decorata. Impresso a Bologna nel 1685 da Giacomo Monti, contiene un'istanza al Senato bolognese da parte di due pittori (dei quali non siamo in grado di fornire i nomi), i quali chiedono per gli artisti pittori l'esenzione dalla tassa ''annua colletta chiamata comunemente la obbedienza, e dalle altre soggezioni e gravezze'', facendo notare la loro peculiarità di artisti, ben diversi dagli artigiani che operano nel campo della decorazione (''.indoratori, santari, stuccatori, verniciatori.dipintori da bottega.'') e rimarcando il fatto che nella pittura, al contrario di ciò che avviene in altri mestieri, non sono i materiali impiegati, i ''vili colori'' che valorizzano l'opera, bensì il genio dell'artista (''Certo che chi acquista una testa diremmo del gran Raffaelle, o del Correggio, un ritratto di Tiziano, non compra.quelle pochissime tente che l'han colorito., ma il magistero di quella operazione, preziosa per l'eccellenza della forma.'' (pag. 2). Quindi i pittori devono essere esentati da certe tasse e gravezze, come già ben fecero molti antichi sovrani ed illuminati mecenati, tra cui Francesco I di Francia, Filippo II di Spagna e Carlo Emanuele di Savoia. Inoltre si chiede che la ''Compagnia de' Pittori in Bologna'' possa godere di benevola legislazione, ''benignità e munificenza'', come già avviene a Roma, Firenze, Genova, Venezia e Milano ed in vari Stati d'Europa. Per vari aspetti trattasi, quindi, di documento di straordinaria importanza per gli interessi "sindacali" della categoria. Molto raro; nel Catalogo degli Statuti del Senato (vol. I, p. 174), infatti, un solo documento, e per di più Manoscritto del XVIII secolo, concerne i pittori di Bologna, i quali soltanto nel 1709 riuscirono a formare l'Accademia Clementina, per la tutela dei propri diritti. Rarissimo cimelio, in buono stato di conservazione, a grandi margini. Buon esemplare (tracce di pieghe verticali ed orizzontali; restauri a quelle del primo foglio). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Some Animadversions Upon a Book Intituled The Theory of the Earth.

      Harper London 1685 - Small octavo; [44], 178,[2]. Contemporary full speckled sheepskin, corners worn, a 19thc respine of light calf, two lettering pieces of red and black leather. 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, suggesting the possibility that when God created the Earth, the days were longer. However, Burnet did not find this explanation scientific enough. Lengthening the days would require an intervention on God's part. Burnet tightly held the belief that God created the world and all its processes perfectly from the start. (Wiki). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        1685 Edward Cocker Decimal Arithmetick Algebra Mathematics Geometry Arithmethic

      London : Printed by J. Richardson, for Tho. Passinger, at the Three Bibles on London-Bridge, and Tho. Lacy, at the Golden-Lyon in Southwark, 1685. - 1685 Edward Cocker Decimal Arithmetick Algebra Mathematics Geometry Arithmethic First Appearance of the term ‘Lowest Terms’! Edward Cocker’s ‘Decimal Arithmetick’, along with ‘Cocker’s Arithmetick’ was one of the longest used mathematics textbooks in United Kingdom schools for more than 150 years. ‘Decimal Arithmetick’ was particularly important to the history of western mathematics. While decimals and fractional calculations were regularly used and taught, there was a wide variety of notations used. Cocker recommended decimal points be used as introduced by John Napier. This book gave instructions on solving calculations involving decimals, methods for teaching, and various logarithm concepts. This work is also the first known use of the term “lowest terms” in a mathematics text. (Miller) This late 17th-century printing includes other Cocker mathematics titles including two other works both published in 1684: • “Artificial Arithmetick ” • “Algebraical Arithmetick containing the Doctrine of Composing and resolving an equation” Oddly, these works were remarkably popular even though they were considered difficult to follow and explain. Many notable historical figures have been documented as having used this book including Thomas Simpson, Samuel Johnson, and Benjamin Franklin. (Ball; Johnson).

This classic treatise on inland and maritime waterways was first published in 1647 and went through several editions and issues into the nineteenth century. In his survey of water law Holdsworth observes that this book and "certain cases" reported by Coke are the "foundations of the modern law."
