AA.VV.
na Officina de Miguel Manescal, Impressor da Serenissima Casa de Bargança[sic], & do Santo Officio, 1685. 12º. 31p. pp, Bound in full antiphonary vellum, inked spine. Very fresh copy in nice condition. In the seventeenth century the carol is an extremely popular genre, and by then it will constitute the major part of the Spanish musical production of the time. They compose a multitude of devotional Christmas carols for the different religious festivities such as the Assumption, the Immaculate Conception or festivities of saints, as well as Corpus Christi or Christmas. At this time the carol becomes even more sophisticated adding more voices to the polyphony, up to eight distributed in two choirs located in different parts of the church and accompaniment of the viol, harp and organ. The chorus becomes longer and complex polyphonically, often divided into tones and responsions, while in contrast the couplets are shortened and simplified musically. Some dramatic elements are also introduced. They are important musicians of this period among many others Cristóbal Galán, Juan Hidalgo and Sebastián Durón. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Letztere beschreibt v. Arnim als "Einbände für mehrere Werke gleichen [...] Formats, die wie siamesische Zwilllinge durch einen gemeinsamen Teil - Rücken oder Deckel - miteinander verbunden und von mindestens zwei Seiten aus zu lesen sind. Diese Einbandspielerei scheint ihren Ausgang in den sechziger Jahren des 16. Jahrhunderts genommen zu haben [...] Schon Gruel bemerkte, daß die kuriosen Einbände fast durchweg religiöse protestantische Gebrauchsdrucke enthalten. Es scheint, als habe sich hier der nüchterne Protestantismus einer quasi-luxuriösen Laune ergeben, gleichsam als Ersatz für die häufig bibliophil ausgerichteten (katholischen) Stundenbücher. Besonders beliebt waren Zwillingsbände in England, zumal für die dort so zahlreichen kleinformatigen Ausgaben von Neuem Testament und Psalmen [...] Von neun Zwillingsbänden im British Museum haben sechs gestickte Einbände" (Bibl. Otto Schäfer, Nr. 79). "Die Form der Zwillings- oder dos-à-dos-Bände wurde im 17. und 18.

CASATI PAOLO.
Bologna, per Gioseffo Longhi, 1685. In-4°; 4 cc., 250 pp., 4 tavole di strumenti fuori testo, figure nel testo; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida, titolo manoscritto al dorso (antico restauro ad un piccolo buco al piatto posteriore). Piccoli forellini al margine superiore del frontespizio, qualche minima arrossatura. Buon esemplare genuino. Si tratta dell'edizione definitiva "notabilmente accresciuta". Paolo Casati (1617-1707), scienziato piacentino dell'ordine dei Gesuiti, fu matematico e rettore dell'Università di Piacenza. Le sue opere si collocano a buon diritto in quel movimento di pensiero e studi che ebbe come riferimento il lavoro di Galileo Galilei: "Casati in quest'opera conferma di non aver avuto modo di leggere altre opere su questo argomento tranne che un piccolo libretto di Galileo che lesse nel 1642" (Cinti).

In een uitvoerig voorwoord verdedigt Desbordes de uitgave van deze voor die tijd gedurfde berijmde vertellingen. In 1674 werd de uitgave ervan in Frankrijk verboden en tien jaar later betuigde La Fontaine zelfs zijn spijt over het schrijven van de 'Contes'. Volgens Van Eeghen is deze Amsterdamse uitgave buiten medeweten van de , 523, e dichter verschenen. Desbordes, een , 523, e hugenoot, had zich in 1682 als boekverkoper in Amsterdam gevestigd. Tot zijn dood in 1722 heeft hij bijna uitsluitend werken in het , 523, uitgegeven.

Nell'angolo in alto a sinistra entro decorativo cartiglio viene riportata la legenda, mentre nell'angolo in basso a destra si legge l'indicazione "Si vendono in Milano da Marc'Antonio dal Re Incisore in Rame alla Piazza de Mercanti presso la Scuole Palatine".

Risalta con imponenza il disegno dell'orografia, che descrive la catena alpina, nel tratto compreso fra le Cozie e le Marittime e la dorsale appenninica che circonda ad arco la Liguria, frammentata da isolati gruppi montuosi e da brevi catene, disposte … [Click Below for Full Description]

TAYLOR, J.B.
London H Clark for John Taylor 1685 First Edition. A very good copy in early 20th century 1/2 brown tan calf, new red leather title label, old marbled boards. Several of the gutters between gatherings have at some time in the mid 20th century been sellotaped with narrow tape in an attempt to strengthen the binding, leaving very narrow (3mm) tape stainsalong the inner margins, title page upper right corner chipped and strengthened, losing "ss" of "Happiness", otherwise an intact clean copy of a very scarce book. This pamphlet was written to reinforce the public's acceptance of James II as the rightful King and therefore best for England, despite being a Catholic. The worrying question to James's subjects was whether or not a Catholic dynasty was beginning.first edition

Eerste geïllustreerde editie van de 'Contes et nouvelles' van Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695). In een uitvoerig voorwoord verdedigt Desbordes de uitgave van deze voor die tijd gedurfde berijmde vertellingen. In 1674 werd de uitgave ervan in Frankrijk verboden en tien jaar later betuigde La Fontaine zelfs zijn spijt over het schrijven van de 'Contes'. Volgens Van Eeghen is deze Amsterdamse uitgave buiten medeweten van de , 523, e dichter verschenen. Desbordes, een , 523, e hugenoot, had zich in 1682 als boekverkoper in Amsterdam gevestigd. Tot zijn dood in 1722 heeft hij bijna uitsluitend werken in het , 523, uitgegeven.

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.

WEIDENFELD JOHANNES SEIGERIUS.
AMBURGO, G. SCHULTZEN TYPIS NICOLAI SPIERINGII, 1685. In-8°; 24 cc., 602 pp., 5 cc.; cartonatura rustica coeva con unghie, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Bell'esemplare genuino e a pieni margini, solo una uniforme ma leggera brunitura della carta come d'uso in queste stampe. Seconda edizione, apparsa un anno dopo la prima di Londra. Il testo indaga in particolare il processo alchemico della fermentazione e della distillazione. Le ricerche di Weidenfeld si occupavano di produrre, tramite la sperimentazione concreta, l'aqua vitae, lo spiritus vini, lo spiritus mellis e altri distillati anche ad uso alimentare; inoltre lo spiritus calcis vivae, l'oleum vel essentia salis, l'aqua mercurialis, l'aqua regis, il mercurius duplex e molti altri preparati sulla scorta di Lullo, Paracelso, Ruggero Bacone, Basilio Valentino, Ripley e di altri alchimisti. Una parte dell'opera di Weidenfeld, rimasta manoscritta, fu data alle fiamme per il suo contenuto alchemico-esoterico. "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 elements... divided into simples and compounds, and taken from various earlier writers" (Thorndike). Thorndike VIII, 394. Duveen 614. Ferguson II, 538 (edizione del 1768). Cfr. Ch.A. Becker, Das Aceton, der geheime Weingeist der Adepten, 1997.
