Venice, Michelangelo Barboni for Voskan Agulets'i, 1685. 4to (180 x 133mm.). Contemporary Armenian-style binding of blind-tooled calf over thin wooden boards, rounded metal crosses on boards. Upper boards with coloured glass roundels inset. Two replacement long straps. A page of contemporary manuscript in Armenian at front, some soiling and damp-staining (particularly towards end). Small marginal hole in Ee1. Woodcut title-page and four full woodcut followed by four half-page headpieces. Numerous zoomorphic initials in text. 24 lines in double colums. (16), 430, (2) pp. ¶ Rare early printing of the Four Gospels in Armenian, printed in the pre-Mekhitarists period in Venice. Barboni printed a total of 12 works in Armenian from 1680 to 1690, comprising gospels, psalters and other liturgical and devotional works.<br>Early in the seventeenth century, as the Catholic church launched a campaign to bring Eastern Christians into its fold, a large number of books were required. To meet this demand, several Italian printing houses began to publish Armenian books. Despite the relative rise in printing in Armenian in this period all works are of the utmost scarcity today and many of them are virtually unobtainable. <br><br>In 1717, Manuk Petrosian Sebaastatsi, known as Mkhitar, was granted the island of San Lazzaro by the Venetian government and he and his congregation set up the Mkhitarist monastery that remains there today. They quickly became very active publishers, having their books printed for them by Antonio Bortoli in Venice. Books printed in Venice prior to the Mkhitar printing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam, Visscher, ca. 1685.

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, suggest … [Click Below for Full Description]

"On 21 Sept. 1683 he was installed in the deanery of Westminster, and he was consecrated at Lambeth as bishop of Rochester on 2 Nov. 1684, holding both preferments until his death. .. He marked his gratitude for his new preferments by bringing out at the close of May 1685 A True Account and Declaration of the Horrid Conspiracy against the late King, his present Majesty and the Government, which, though anonymous, was known to be the composition of Sprat.

Exemplar apresenta um título de posse manuscrito na folha de guarda anterior «Maria do Nascim[en]to» e leves vestígios de humidade e oxidação natural das folhas, bem como pequenas anotações no texto com perfuração causada por oxidação da tinta. A obra é toda constituída por parábolas que relatam uma viagem romanceada à Terra Santa, partindo do Egipto e terminando na Babilónia que é, metafóricamente, o Inferno. A importância desta obra provém do facto de ser a primeira edição de uma novela com alegorias a costumes morais, a qual muitos autores consideram (segundo Borba de Morais) o primeiro livro de ficção escrito no Brasil por um autor português. Segundo Borba de Morais apareceu uma variante no mesmo ano e do mesmo impressor. Inocêncio I, 32 «P.

Portal, Paul
Gabriel Martin, 1685. Size: 12mo-over 6; The Practice of Sustained Births of a Large Number of Observations. Contemporary mottled calf with five raised bands and gilt titles to spine, 7 1/2 x 5 inches, [20], 368 pages, 8 engraved plates, no author portrait at frontis and perhaps lacking a front free endpaper; occasional spots wearing through at extremities, three tiny worm holes at top of rear board, one at tail of spine and another slightly larger at head of front joint, some writing scribbled out at top edge of title page, brief inked notation in rear, pages show standard browning and waving as typical of books of this age, a couple of handwritten corrections to text: for example, the word "humeur" has been lined out and "tumeur" has been written next to it in the margin. Overall the book is remarkably clean and sound. Paul Portal was a renowned obstetrician in his day, and he made some ground-breaking observations. His most important contribution to the field of midwifery was likely his recognition of placenta previa and practices for its management. The book consists of more than 80 personal observations in obstetrics with detailed descriptions of problem cases. The plates show monstrous and deformed fetuses. A wonderfully well preserved early medical textbook! Very Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Il y a aussi grande resjouissance parmy les Marchands de poisson", "le 3 février commence la Foire S. Germain laquelle dure quinze jours; et si elle est prolongée, comme il arrive ordinairement, ce n'est qu'avec permission du Roy, en faveur des Marchands de la Ville seulement, et non des Forains", etc. A la suite figure on trouve un calendrier pour connaître un calendrier des "jours heureux" et des "jours périlleux" ainsi que des conseils de jardinage intitulés: "Instruction expérimentée par les plus experts Jardiniers de Paris, pour ceux qui prennent plaisir à l'Agriculture du Jardin". Ces ephémérides parisiennes sont en réalité un fragment de l'Almanach du Palais, publication plus complète dont elle constituait le dernier cahier.

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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]
