S.l.n.d. (Marseille? c.1685). in-12. 57pp. (1f.blanc). Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale (?). Rarissime biographie, pratiquement inconnue, du marin provençal Jean-Baptiste de Valbelle (1627-1681), qui fut l'un des marins français les plus illustres de son époque. Originaire de La Reynarde, près de Marseille, il se rendit célèbre par l'éclat de ses faits d'armes, notamment contre les Anglais, les pirates barbaresques et les Turcs en Méditerranée. S'il fut très tôt capitaine de la Royale, il n'hésita pas à armer des bateaux à ses frais pour le service de la couronne, à une époque où la Marine française n'avait pas l'importance que lui donnèrent les réformes de Colbert. Cet opuscule, paru sans lieu ni date d'impression, pourrait avoir été imprimé à Marseille peu de temps après la mort du Chevalier dans sa terre natale de La Reynarde. D'une grande rareté, nous ne l'avons trouvé répertorié que dans les collections de la Bibliothèque Méjanes à Aix-en-Provence. Très bon exemplaire à grandes marges.

Coles, E[lisha
printed for Peter Parker, at the Leg and Star over against the, 1685. Fourth edition, sm. 8vo, pp. [8] plus unpaginated lexicon in triple column, genuine first and final blanks present; a clean and fairly crisp copy in full contemporary calf, rubbed and worn, a few small chips out on the spine, but sound. Coles (?1640-1680) was the author of a number of "useful and necessary books for the instruction of beginners," among which were his popular A Dictionart English-Latin and Latin-English (London, 1677) which was still in use in schools even after the arrival of Ainsworth's Thesaurus in 1736; and An English Dictionary (London, 1676). "Still in the "hard words" tradition, Coles included thousands of "old words," obsolete ones from Chaucer's day. His dictionary contained twenty-five thousand words, eight thousand more than the last, augmented edition of Phillips. He shortened Phillips' already brief definitions in order to include more words and more etymological information. Coles did break new ground in including cant (thieves' argot) and dialectical terms. These, taken from other specialized dictionaries, had never before been included in a general English dictionary" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 43). Alston V,66; Wing C-5073.

There he was converted to christianity, and after the beginning of the Great Persecution (of the christians) which ravaged ca. 300, he became an eloquent apologist in defence of christianity. In old age he was tutor to Crispus, son of Constantine the Great, the first 'christian' emperor.

Zweite Ausgabe des Robert Boyle gewidmeten Werkes, erstmals 1684 in London erschienen. - "The secrets of the adepts are treated very discreetly, and the author restricts his attention mainly to one - what was called Raymund Lully's Spirit of Wine, believed to be the substance now known to chemists as acetone. The book, however, contains besides some preparations for medical use and a chapter on transmutation. Considering that the book deals with secrets of chemistry in a very secret way, Weidenfeld's may be called in every sense a 'Secret Work'" (Ferguson, Bibliographical Notes). - "The identity of the author is a very difficult one to establish. Joecher (IV, 1852) says he was a doctor at Hamburg; the German Dictionary of Biography does not mention him at all" (Duveen). - Nahezu fleckenfreies Exemplar in guter Erhaltung. - Ferguson II, 538 (Anm.); Brüning 2593; Ferguson, Bibliographical Notes II, S.44; Fulton, Boyle 281 (Anm.); vgl.

DESCARTES, Rene
Amstelodami: Blaviana, 1685. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well." - René Descartes René Descartes was a 17th-century French philosopher whose theories and discoveries spawned an influx of commentary and responsive writings from western philosophers. He wrote numerous studies on a variety of topics including meteorology, physics, dioptric, mechanics, and even music - all of which were collected in his work 'Discourse on the Method'. According to the 'Printing and the Mind of Man', "It is no exaggeration to say that Descartes was the first of modern philosophers and one of the first modern scientists; in both branches of learning his influence has been vast The revolution he caused can be most easily found in his reassertion of the principle (lost in the Middle Ages) that knowledge, if it is to have any value, must be intelligence and not erudition. His application of modern arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which is the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science." One of his most important and oft-referenced works was 'Meditations of First Philosophy' - a collection of detailed explanations of various philosophical systems. Discussed are metaphysical ideals concerning the human mind, the existence of God, material things, the distinction between the mind and body, and the value of truths. This work is still considered to be one of the most influential philosophical texts ever written. (Watson.).

Danckerts, Justus.
Amsterdam, Danckerts, [ca. 1685]. Folio (325 x 530 mm). With 31 double-page engraved maps, including one world map, partly in original hand colour, and 36 engraved city views. 18th century half calf over marbled boards. A collection of maps from the famous Danckerts atlas, created around 1685 and compiled in this version in the late 18th century. The volume contains 28 maps by the Dutch engraver and publisher Justus Danckerts (1635-1701), including a world map showing the Eastern and Western hemispheres, maps of Europe, Asia, Africa and America, as well as maps of Spain, France, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Bohemia, Hungary, the Balkan Peninsula, Greece, and Poland. The views show various cities in Hungary and Greece, also including Constantinople. There are three maps not originating from Danckerts: a postal map of Germany published in Augsburg by Matthias Seutter; another showing the Holy Land, by Guillaume Sanson; and the third showing the Habsburg empire in 1781, which suggests the terminus post quem for the compilation of this volume. - Lacks a title-page. With 19th century bookplate of a member of the Lasser von Zollheim family, probably Johann Baptist (1822-89), librarian and later the abbot of the Benedictine abbey of Lambach in Upper Austria. A handwritten table of contents on the reverse of the first map; each map numbered by hand. On the back of the maps of France and Poland is a list of field marshals who served under Napoleon.

FOUQUET, Marie
1685. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "One of the most famous collections of popular remedies!" The 'Remedies' of Madame Fouquet was a popular book of medicines, healing, and healthy recipes, originally written in the late 17th-century (1685). Her situation was a unique experience for women in any scientific field during her day. Except - it wasn't. According to Doig and Sturzer, "Although she helped many people, she continues to this day to be given credit for something she actually never did. Marie Fouquet...was a very religious woman who expended much energy and money in organizing care for and distributing medicine to the poor. Although she is often credited with the authorship of 'Recueil de receptes choisies, experimentees...as well as the receipies, she neither wrote the book nor developed the formulas! - (D&S, 131) "The most prominent of the charitable handbooks, and perhaps the most successful of its kind in early modern Europe" (Porter 103). This book describes medical work, experiments, and treatments that she herself developed - including syphilis!

Bentley], [1685].Folio in sixes; full panelled calf by Bernard Middleton (with his pencil signature) and blind stamp, lettered in gilt on upper board; pp. 55 - 76; a little browning, and occasional staining, paper repair to margin of final leaf.The complete play of Measure for Measure extracted from a copy of the Fourth Folio edition of the complete works published in 1685. The Fourth Folio was the last of the great 17th century folio editions of Shakespeare's complete plays. It was a reprint of the Third Folio (1663) with corrections and modernizations. The text of this edition is printed in a larger type than the three earlier editions, and more liberally spaced. It was executed on Dutch paper.Measure for Measure first appeared in the First Folio of 1623. Because the play does not end tragically, it is technically a comedy, but modern critics describe it as one of Shakespeare's "problem plays", due to its dark content. In it, Shakespeare explores themes of corruption and incorruptability; sin and virtue; the responsibility of civil law; morality and the dichotomy of justice and mercy. This copy was bound by Bernard Middleton, MBE (1932 - 2019). Middleton trained at the Central School of Art and Design in London and spent many years at the bindery of the British Museum and British Library. He went on to manage Zaehnsdorf, one of the most prestigious binderies in London, and then established his own business. He re … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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.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. 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 period are … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amsterdam, Visscher, ca. 1685. "Die Karten aller Visschers hinterlassen den Eindruck einer harmonischen Ausgewogenheit; in typischer Barockmanier sollen allegorische Figurengruppen spezifische Landesprodukte symbolisieren; hübsche bildliche Darstellungen zeigen meist Eingeborene und Tiere, was dem an Ethnologie und Zoologie der betreffenden länder interessiertem Betrachter der damaligen Zeit manch wertvollen Hinweis gab."

1685. This is a used item. Please see item description for further details. [Croft, Herbert]. Lord Bishop of Hereford. 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, suggest … [Click Below for Full Description]
