        Gudz werk och hwila/ thet är hela werldenes undersamma skapelse/ uti sex dagar af then altzmäktige gud fullbordad: sampt then siunde dagens nödwendiga helgelse/ af samme alwise gud instiktad: efter månge lärde mäns anledning af christeligit ock wälmeent upsåt uti swenska rijm beskrefwen them til tiänst som gerna betrakta thet himmelska.

      Sthlm, N. Wankijf, 1685. Folio. (8),298,(18,2 blanka) s. Hfrbd från 1700-talets första hälft med upphöjda bind, sparsam oxiderad ryggdekor och stänkta snitt. Ryggen ngt blekt och med några små fuktfläckar. Pärmarna ställvis ytligt nötta och en del nagg på frampärmen. Titelbladet med en bortklippt namnteckning i nedre marginalen. En lagad reva i nedre marginalen på s. 19. Sporadiska småfläckar, t.ex. på s. 62 och 105-08 i övre yttre hörnet. Smärre fuktfläckar i övre marginalen på s. 143-45 och en reva i texten på s. 187. Med Anna Lisa Celsings namnteckning. Från Biby.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 870. Första upplagan av den 11000 verser långa lärodikten som trycktes om flera gånger under 1700-talet. Den har antika förebilder i Lucretius och Ovidius men även mer moderna som t.ex. Guillaume de Salluste du Bartas och i synnerhet dansken Anders Arrebo. Spegel, född i Skåne, var föga förvånande danskorienterad men tog ovanligt nog intryck också från engelskt kulturliv. "Gudz werk och hwila" har likheter med Miltons "Paradise lost" (1667), något som föranlett litteraturhistoriker att kalla "Gudz werk och hwila" den första influensen av Miltons epos på kontinentens litteratur. Samtidigt är verket lärdomshistoriskt intressant då det söker ge en bild av hela skapelsen, en skapelse som fortfarande var under upptäckt: "Jag skal likwäl rätt nu om andra saker röra/ så framt man tåleligt tekz blotta nampnen höra / om giraf, hwilket diur iag fuller intet kenner/ men andra säya thet uti Jamaica renner". Anna Elisabeth (Lisa) Celsing (1681-1761) var syster till Gustaf Celsing d.ä. Hon gifte sig 1709 med Johannes Albertus Lubomirski. Denne var polsk furste av Wiesnick och Jaroslaw, hade enligt egen uppgift varit katolsk missionär i Kina och vände sig 1708 till Karl XII med önskan att omvända sig till den lutherska läran. Han fick kunglig pension och dog i Sverige 1732 samt begravdes bland Celsingarna i Sollentuna kyrka

Som sådan introducerade han den unge Schefferus i studiet av klassikerna. Han kallades av drottning Kristina till den skytteanska professuren i Uppsala 1647 men avböjde, och rekommenderade istället Schefferus. 1649 kom han ändå till Sverige och Uppsala som professor i vältalighet och 1651 utnämndes han till rikshistoriograf. Samma år återvände han dock till Strassburg och till professorsstolen i historia

De tre utvikbara planscherna helt uppfodrade, den sista med lagad nedre marginal.

Ljusbrunt skinnryggsband från början av 1800-talet, med marmorerade pärmpapper och pergamenthörn, stänksnitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Saknar den tyska texten. Nordin 2005. Collijn sp. 221f. Lindberg, Swedish Books, 30. Klemming, Ur en antecknares samlingar, s. 75. Warmholtz 8000. Första upplagan av David Klöcker Ehrenstrahls avbildningar av de stora festligheter och turneringar som föranleddes av Karl XI tillträde till tronen den 18 december 1672. Ett av den svenska barockens mest praktfulla bokverk. Planscherna är graverade i Nürnberg och Hamburg av Georg Christoph Eimmart efter Ehrenstrahls teckningar. Eimmart har även graverat extraplanchen "Typus pugnae navalis" (även den efter Ehrenstrahl). Denna är ofta bifogad verket och föreställer ett låtsassjöslag mellan kungliga och adliga jakter på Riddarfjärden. Planscherna är troligen graverade före december 1685, frontespisen dock troligen först år 1686. Eberdt i Stockholm har endast tryckt texten till verket och det troligen senare än planscherna. Denna text trycktes på både latin och tyska, med vardera 17 sidor, här återfinns dock endast den latinska. Texten är med stor sannolikhet författad av Samuel Agriconius Åkerhielm (Nordin s. 51.) Samma år som karusellen ägde rum tryckte Wankijff separat en svensk text av Erik Lindschöld: "Le carrosel eller dhen prächtige ringränning", i folio. Den stora karusellen, eller ringränningen, och den stora processionen från slottet längs Drottninggatan och Mäster Samuelsgatan fram till rännarbanan vid Hötorget, som ägde rum dagen efter trontillträdet, var huvudnumret vid festligheterna och upptar 55 av de 62 planscherna. Karusellens deltagare var uppdelade i fyra lag, eller kadriljer; göter, polacker, turkar och "moderna" och deltog i kostbara och rikt utsirade dräkter. David Klöcker (1628-98), adlad Ehrenstrahl 1674, var från Hamburg och kom i svensk tjänst 1659 under Karl X Gustav, Han utnämndes till svensk hovkonterfejare 1661 och blev den ledande konstnären i Sverige under andra halvan av 1600-talet, berömd för sina porträtt och dekormålningar. Georg Christoph Eimmart (1638-1705) i Nürnberg, var svåger till Jacob von Sandrart, och blev 1672 utnämnd till svensk hovgravör på Ehrenstrahls begäran. Han kom aldrig att flytta till Stockholm, men samarbetet dem emellan resulterade både i detta verk, sjöslaget "Typus pugnae navalis" och illustrationerna till Disasagan. Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708) var gravör och förläggare, och brorson till Joachim von Sandrart, som arbetat för både hertig Karl Gustav och Carl Gustaf Wrangel. Jacob gjorde för svenskt vidkommande framförallt portätt av kungliga familjen, men även gravyrerna i Pufendorfs bok om Gustav II Adolf, "Sechs und zwanzig Bücher der schwedish- und deutschen Kriegs-Geschichte"

        [Franche Comté] Dole prise dans la premiere conqueste que le Roy a faite de la franche Comté en 1668 [Dôle, taken in the first conquest that the King made in Franche-Comté]

      Paris: distribuë par l'Auteur, en l'Hostel des Manufactures des Gobelins, et en la rue St.Jacques, [1685]. Copper engraving, on two joined sheets, by Van Huctenburg and A.F. Baudouinst, after Van der Meulen. Titled in French and Latin. 23 x 55 1/4 inches overall. Painted from life by the artist who accompanied Louis XIV on his campaigns, Adam Frans Van der Meulen depicted in this wonderful panorama a post-battle view of Dôle, the capital of Franche-Comté, and the handsome surrounding region. In it, Louis XIV and his brother survey the city they've won from a hilltop. There is actually no unpleasant evidence of military activity except for some smoke billowing from the far side of Dôle.Adam Frans Van der Meulen was a landscape and genre painter, who specialized in battle scenes, and his early works, i.e. those from the years before he left for Paris (the earliest dated work is from 1653) are mainly cavalry skirmishes in the manner of his teacher Pieter Snayer. After he moved to Paris, the character of his work changed and became more ceremonial. He now specialized in large topographical views and military scenes and in royal journeys, processions and receptions. His most important task was to accompany the king on his many campaigns during the wars of conquest waged in the 1660s and 1670s against, inter alia the Spanish Netherlands, and as Peintre de conquêtes du roi officially to portray the memorable sieges, battles and conquests of le Roi Soleil in large-scale canvases or cartoons which were later transformed into tapestries.Van der Meulen was born in Brussels in 1632. In 1646 he was apprenticed to the battle painter Pieter Snayers. In 1651 he became a master in the Guild of St Luke in Brussels but by 1663 he had moved to Paris, where he joined a group of Netherlandish artists associated with the French painter Charles Le Brun (1619-90), who not only was Premier peintre du roi, but also (from 1663) director of the Parisian tapestry manufactory Manufacture royale des Gobelins. Van der Meulen quickly became a protégé of Le Brun, and on his recommendation Van der Meulen was appointed court painter to Louis XIV on 1 April 1664 and at the same time became Le Brun's collaborator in the tapestry manufactory. In 1673 he was accepted as a member of the Académie royale de Peinture et de Sculpture without any obligation to submit a morceau de réception; in 1681 he became conseiller and in 1686 premier conseiller. He died as a highly esteemed artist in the Hôtel des Gobelins 15 October 1690.

        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]

      [London]: Sold at his shop on the West-side of the Royal Exchange, [1685]. Small octavo. (5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches). Letterpress text: 1-80 pp.only. 1 engraved additional title, 1 uncoloured engraved plate, with attached volvelle, 30 hand-coloured double-page engraved maps, 28 (of 30) leaves of engraved text (printed recto only, as issued). (Lacking letterpress text leaves after p.80, 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. 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'sNew 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. Betz Africa 134; cf. Phillips Atlases III, 3450 (1685 edition with 51 maps) & IV, 4267 (1690 edition with 58 maps) ; cf.

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.

        Poems by several hands, and on several occasions

      Printed: 1685. 1652-1715 Octavo, . First (and only)edition A-Z, Aa-Ee8, Ff7 (last verso blank). This copy is bound in full nineteenth century mottled calf, slightly rubbed, persereving the spine and label, a good copy This collection includes poems by the Earl of Rochester, Earl of Roscommon, and Earl of Dorset, Cowley, Tate, Evelyn, Waller, and others. Tate, Nahum (c.1652-1715), poet, playwright, and translator, probably born in Ireland... He lived there as a professional writer (with perhaps a brief period as a schoolmaster between 1687 and 1692) for the rest of his life. During the early 1680s Tate wrote committedly in support of Charles II, and initially welcomed James II"s succession in 1685. But he seems to have become rapidly disenchanted with James"s extreme pro-Catholic policies, and at the revolution of 1688-9 transferred his allegiance to William III, whom he hailed as a pious peacemaker and defender of English liberty. After the death of Thomas Shadwell in 1692, on 8 December Tate was appointed to the poet laureateship, a position which he held for life... In 1677 he published his own collection of Poems: sixty-nine short pieces, including love lyrics, melancholy Flatmanesque reflections, and one poem ('On the Present Corrupted State of Poetry') which provides early evidence of his pious tendencies. An expanded and revised edition of the collection, with many metrical and stylistic improvements, appeared in 1684. [Oxford DNB]

      London, Daniel Brown, 1685. Small8vo. Bound to style in a later very nice full sprinckled calf with small embossed vignettes to corners of front and back boards. Embossed lines to edges of boards and six compartments to spine. Red leather title label with gilt lettering to spine. Title-page with a few small nicks to right margin, not affecting text. Light soiling throughout. A fine and attractive copy. (24), 180 pp.. Rare first edition of Falconer's book on cryptography which constitutes the first adequate English handbook of cryptology; it furthermore seems to present the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition. It is the second English publication on the subject but the first work containing practical information. "The second English book on the subject excelled, and its high quality is all the more surprising when one considers that John Falconer had written Cryptomenysis Patefacta in France some thirty years before its first publication in 1685." (Leeuw, The history of Information Security, p. 303). It has been stated that Falconer was greatly influenced by John Wilkins's Mercury [1641], the first English work on the subject. This is, however, not entirely true; Wilkins' work has "a certain air of unreality" about it; he borrowed knowledge from earlier volumes and puffed it out with his own hypothesizing, which seems never to have been deflated by contact with the bruising actuality of solving cryptograms that he himself had not made up. Up until Falconer the literature was all theory and no practice (Kahn, The Code Breakers, P. 156)."Falconer also gave what seems to be the earliest illustration of keyed columnar transposition, a cipher that is today the primary and most widely used transposition cipher, having served (with modifications) for French military ciphers, Japanese diplomatic superencipherments, and Soviet spy ciphers." (Leeuw, p. 303).Falconer's approach was that of practical coding and cryptography, which probably was a product of his profession as the private cipher of King James II. "In the middle of the 17th-century, the first adequate English handbook of cryptology was finally written [The present work]; the second edition in 1692 may be an indication that Falconer's work was in demand even forty years after its redaction." (Leeuw, p. 303). Only very little is known about John Falconer except that he was a distant relative of the Scottish philosopher David Hume and "was reportedly entrusted with the private cipher of the future King James II, and died in France while following James into temporary exile there." (Kahn, The Code Breakers, P. 155)

        A treatise of algebra, both historical and practical. Shewing, The Original, Progress, and Advancement thereof, from time to time, and by what Steps it hath attained to the Heighth at which now it is. With some Additional Treatises, I. Of the Cono-Cuneus; being a Body representing in part a Conus, in part a Cuneus. II. Of Angular Sections; and other things relating there-unto, and to Trigonometry. III. Of the Angle of Contact; with other things appertaining to the Composition of Magnitudes, the Inceptives of Magnitudes, and the Composition of Motions, with the Results thereof. IV. Of Combinations, Alternations, and Aliquot Parts.London: John Playford for Richard Davis, 1685. First edition.

      "Wallis' last great mathematical book was <i>Treatise of Algebra, Both Historical and Practical</i> (1685), the fruit of many years' labor. As its title suggests, it was to combine a full exposition of algebra with its history, a feat never previously attempted by any author. The book was Wallis' only major mathematical work to be published in the vernacular ...<br/><br/> "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 ... <br/><br/> 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, again with reference to the <i>Arithmetica infinitorum</i> [1656]. Thus the new methods were still considered as an extension of an old subject rather than as a wholly new field of mathematics.<br/><br/> "The <i>Algebra</i> also includes an exposition of the method of infinite series and the first printed account of some of Newton's pioneering results. Wallis had long been afraid that foreigners might claim the glory of Newton's achievements by publishing some of his ideas as their own before Newton himself had done so. He therefore repeatedly warned his younger colleague at Cambridge not to delay but to leave perfection of his methods to later editions ...<br/><br/> "A part from some editions of Greek mathematical classics, the Algebra with its several supplementary treatises- <i>Cono-Cuneus</i> (a study in analytic three-dimensional geometry), <i>Angular Sections, Angle of Contact, and Combinations, Alternations, and Aliquot Parts</i> -marked the end of the stream of mathematical works ...<br/><br/> "Wallis helped shape over half a century of mathematics in England. He bore the greatest share of all the efforts made during this time to raise mathematics to the eminence it enjoyed on the Continent. The center of mathematical research and of the 'new science' in Galileo's time lay in Italy. It then shifted northward, especially to France and the Netherlands. Because of Wallis' preparative work and Newton's genius, it rested in Britain for a while, until through the influence of Leibniz, the Bernoullis, and Euler it moved back to the Continent." (DSB). <br/><br/> Wing W613; Honeyman 3086; Stanitz 449.. Folio (318 x 196 mm), contemporary calf, covers a bit worn and scratched, capitals with skillful repairs, fully complete: engraved portrait of Wallis by Loggan (bound slightly askew and just trimmed in outer margin towards the top), pp [xx, including 'A Proposal about Printing ...'] 374 [iv] 17 [i:blank] 176 [ii] 17 (p 175,176 misnumbered as p 75-76) and 10 engraved folding plates.

Voltaire said that he was "the only man who taught French history". In these volumes his successors continue the account unto the decade just before the French Revolution. This was the last set issued during the Ancien Regime. It covers the history of France from Louix XIV to Louis XVI in 1783.There was still no understanding by most of the government leaders how deep the economic crisis was. (The Assembly of Notables were to be convened in 1787 only to disband when they rejected the stop gap fund to spend more to get out of the economic crisis.It was in 1789 when Louis XVI made the fateful decision to convene the Estates-General).Seldom do the five volume sets appear and in the last volumes much is made of the political events, notes of the United States, but mainly a continuation of the history. Volume III lacks the original gilt lettered black morocco label else a remarkable set. Various publishers with Briand among the most prominent.. Original Calf.
