        Renatum è mysterio principium philologicum, in quo vocum, signorum et punctorum, tum & literarum maxime ac numerorum origo. Nec non novum variarum rerum specimen etymologicum forma dialogi propalatur

      Typographia Seminarii, 1686. In 8° (166 x 108); 8 cc.nn., 137 pp., 2 cc.nn., 1 c.b., con marca tipografica al frontespizio, capilettera, finalini, una vignetta e numerose illustrazioni nel testo raffiguranti simboli, numeri, lettere e spartiti musicali, il tutto in xilografia. Cartonatura coeva d'attesa. Margine inferiore bianco del frontespizio tagliato e rintegrato con carta antica, probabilmente per eliminare una firma di appartenenza. Molto raro. Edizione originale di questo importante studio di Joannes Petrus Ericus sull'origine delle parole, dei numeri e delle note musicali, scritto in forma di dialogo tra Theopranicus e Philologus. Originario di Eisenach in Turingia e professore di linguistica e geografia all'Università di Venezia, non si conosce altro della sua vita, e la sua opera, a lungo dimenticata, è riscoperta da Umberto Eco che nota come Ericus identifichi nella Monas Hieroglyphica di John Dee la sintesi di tutti gli alfabeti e di tutti i sistemi di numerazione esistenti in ogni lingua. "Attraverso un procedimento indubbiamente complesso - spiega Eco - egli parte dai primi segni zodiacali, li ricompone nella Monade, discute come Adamo abbia dato agli animali un nome adeguato a riprodurre il suono che emettono, ed elabora una fonologia abbastanza attendibile, distinguendo le lettere per sibilatione dentes, quelle per tremulatione linguae, quelle per contractione palati, quelle per compressione labrorum, e per respirazione per nares. Di lì conclude che Adamo ha chiamato con suoni vocalici i volatili, con semivocali i terrestri, con mute i pesci. Da questa fonetica elementare deduce i toni musicali e le sette lettere che tradizionalmente li designano, da cui deriva la figura della Monas Hieroglyphica. Quindi mostra come facendo ruotare (in definitiva, anagrammando visivamente) i segni della Monade, si ottengano tutte le lettere degli alfabeti noti". (La ricerca della lingua perfetta, 1993, pp. 204 - 205). Gaspari, I, p. 211

      26 illus. 7 vols. Oblong 8vo, orig. wrappers (rubbed), printed title labels on upper covers (several defective), new stitching. Osaka: 1686. First edition of this rare and early surgical work (surgery is used here in its widest sense); WorldCat locates no copy of our first edition (NLM has the 1760 edition). Jinbo (active 1688), has provided a number of case histories, divided by the sections of the body (chest and abdomen, extremities, and the head). There are substantial sections on burns, skin diseases, syphilitic symptoms, emergency medicine (frozen bodies, resuscitation from drowning), antidotes for food poisoning, treatment for occupational diseases, rabies, snake bites, acupuncture treatments, pharmacological preparations, etc. The illustrations depict the various organs of the body, diseases of the breast, skin diseases, pressure points, etc. While written in kanji, there are Japanese reading marks (yomigana) throughout to assist readers. In his preface, Jinbo provides a list of ten earlier medical writers whose works he used to prepare the present textbook. Some relatively minor occasional worming, sometimes touching the images and, for the most part, carefully repaired. .

        Catalogue des Manuscrits de la Bibliothèque de defunt Monseigneur le Chancellier Séguier.

      - Woodcut arms on title. 119, [1], 48, 36, 45 pp. Four parts in one vol. 12mo, 19th-cent. red morocco by R. Petit, triple gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, a.e.g. Paris: F. Le Cointe & D. Horthemels, 1686. The extremely rare inventory catalogue of the manuscripts in the large and famous library of Pierre Séguier (1588-1672), chancellor of France and a man of deep learning. Séguier was a true bibliophile and an omnivorous one: Sauval, in his catalogue of the great Parisian libraries prepared in 1653-60, estimated at that time only the libraries of the King and Mazarin were larger; Séguier then owned about 24,000 volumes and he had more than ten years left to acquire! This is the only extant printed record of Séguier’s manuscripts, about four thousand in number, based on the 1672 inventory by René Hardy, a lawyer and himself an owner of manuscripts, and the traveller and orientalist Melchisedech Thévenot (1620-92) who was to become Keeper of the Bibliothèque du Roi in 1684. The catalogue is divided into four sections, the first listing state and official papers in the widest sense, historical manuscripts, local histories, literature, medicine, etc. The second describes the illuminated manuscripts ("Inventaire des Miniatures"); the third the Greek manuscripts, as well as ca. fifty Slavonic manuscripts, and two Greek printed books. The final section describes the Arabic, Coptic, Syriac, Ethiopic, and Hebrew manuscripts as well as a few printed books in those languages. The collection was kept together in the hope that the Bibliothèque Royale might eventually acquire it en bloc. Although the price asked was only 40,000 livres — the 1672 valuation had amounted to 56,557 livres — the offer was never taken up. Séguier’s library was notable for being open to the public; indeed, it was the library of choice for many students and scholars in Paris. He was very concerned about methods of cataloguing and, in fact, had three major catalogues and several smaller ones prepared during his lifetime. All of these catalogues were in manuscript. After Séguier’s death, his widow, also a bibliophile of note, kept the library intact until her death in 1685 when separate catalogues of the printed books (1685) and the manuscripts were printed from the final manuscript inventory prepared in 1672. The printed books were sold off in May of 1686 but the manuscripts were retained as his share of the estate by the Chancellor’s grandson, Coislin, bishop of Metz. He deposited the entire collection at the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Près to which he left it upon his death, apart from about a hundred manuscripts sold to the agents of Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford, now in the British Library. Confiscated during the French Revolution, and having suffered minor losses in a fire, three-quarters of Séguier’s manuscripts are now in the Bibliothèque Nationale. A fine copy with the armorial bookplate of Louis de la Forets, Comte d’Armaillé and another. This catalogue is rare: it is the first time I have had it. ? Bléchet, p. 65. Histoire des bibliothèques françaises. Les Bibliothèques sous l’Ancien Régime 1530-1789 (ed. Claude Jolly), pp. 146-55.

        Histoire des sevarambes, peuples qui habitent une partie du troisième continent, communément appelé la Terre Australe

      - Amsterdam, Pierre Mortier, 1686. 2 tomes in-12 en 1 volume, pagination continue, [18]-412p. Rare édition 17ème de ce grand roman UTOPIQUE, une des premières utopies modernes. L¿auteur, protestant français, bilingue anglais-français, publie la première édition en Angleterre en deux parties en 1675 et 1679. La première édition française, probablement traduite par l¿auteur, est publiée en 1677 et 1679. Ce livre sera un succès et il connut donc de très nombreuses éditions. Après la révocation de l¿Edit de Nantes, il émigre en Hollande en 1685 et on perd alors sa trace. Cette édition est donc probablement éditée alors qu¿il est en Hollande. Les sources le donnant pour mort en 1672 sont donc erronées. L¿ouvrage fut ensuite traduit en allemand et italien. Reliure demi-basane 19e, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre maroquin. Papier vieilli, manque le bas de la page de titre. Plusieurs ex-libris : François Delbart, A. Delbart et Charles Delbart. RARE édition du 17ème, complète. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Provenance: Howard Osgood. Contemporary calf, spine elegantly gilt extra, board edges with gilt rolls; leather acid-pitted, edges and extremities a bit rubbed. Title-page with small inked owner's name and institutional pressure-stamp. Damp-spotting to first and last few pages; some leaves starting to separate, many with lower outer corners crumpled.

      Mendelssohn I, pp. 413-414; STCN (5 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 298 note. First edition of the French translation of Dapper's illustrated description of Africa, translated by Dapper himself. Dapper's description includes of Morocco, Guinea, Southern Africa, Congo and Angola, Eastern Africa (Nubia - Mozambique, Madagascar, Cape Verde Islands, Canary Islands, Malta), containing the names, rivers, towns, settlements, plants and animals of the regions and the customs, costumes, language, riches, religion and government of its peoples. The work starts with an extensive description of Egypt, with double-page views of Alexandria and Cairo, the pyramids, plants, etc. Surely no book spoke more to the imagination of the 17th-century Europe concerning the exotic lands just being explored, and it did much to establish the Western view of Africa among both scholars and the general public. Binding rebacked, as noted, and with some other restorations. Some small spots and waterstains in the lower and inner margin; a good copy.

        Document Signed (with her mark), on paper.

      [Philadelphia] Small 4to (19.5 x 18.5 cm, 7.7 x 7.28"), 4 pp., with integral address leaf, 2 pp. blank.. 12 October 1686 A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur de lis, or trefoil; however we find no match in Briquet or Gravell. Previously folded in multiple places, and now along bifolium crease only; four small holes in the upper corner where previously stapled or pinned. "Lacing," a result of the iron gall ink's exposure to moisture, is in evidence here but does not affect the legibility or stability of the deed, which is neatly repaired in two places at the outer edge of the first recto near the remnants of the red wax seal. => An attractive relic of colonial American, Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, commercial, legal, and women's history.

        Superb vellum “foot of the fine” 17th century document from the short reign of King James II regarding a sale of land

      Westminster [England], January 31 [c. 1686 - 1688]. 27.5" X 20.75". "Manuscript Document Signed “J Rex” by a court officer, one page, 27.5” x 20.75”. [London, 1685-1687]. In the hand of a scrivener. A portrait of King James II appears in the upper left, adorned with elaborate swirls. His name in Latin in Old English lettering is across the top: “Jacobus Secundus Dei gra” (“James Second by the grace of God”). Above his name is a 19.5” x 5” ornate border of foliage and animals, including a lion, unicorn, dragon, and serpents, beneath which is penned: “Sold in Cliffords Inne lane,” the printing establishment which produced the document. Simpler foliage adorns the left and right sides of the text. Documents of this type were said to have been penned in “old law-Latin, flavored with Norman French.” At the bottom is a 1.5” x 1.25” portion of vellum, which had been attached to the royal seal which is no longer present, bearing a handwritten, ornate “J Rex” signature placed there by a court officer. Light folds, some rubbing of letters. Generally, in apparent fine condition. Partial translation: “James Second by the grace of God King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith & to All to whom our present letters may come, Greeting. Know Ye that among the records and Feet of Fines with the proclamations thereof made according to the form of the Statute in that case lately enacted and provided...This is the Final Concord made in the court of our Lord the King at Westminster...and of the reign of our Lord James Second by the grace of God King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, &...” The “fine” was the record of an amicable agreement in court ending in an action at law to enforce a covenant to convey real property. This document is a chirography of a fine of land called the “foot of the fine.” In order to legally record a transfer of land, the person to whom the land was to be conveyed instituted a lawsuit against the owner, levying a fine which was understood by the participants to simply be a means of transferring property. There were five parts of the fine, each regarding an aspect of the sale and its recording. This document represents the fifth and last part of the fine called the foot. It includes all the details of the land sale, stating the parties, dates, and place, and the Justices before whom it was acknowledged or levied. The use of the fine in land sales was abolished in 1833 and replaced by a simpler legal action. Because of the many details which they give of the topography of the land as well as, in many cases, valuable genealogic and court information, “foot of the fine” documents are among the most valuable of all British public records."

Da die vorliegende Variante mit einem Schlussstück endet und das letzte Blatt verso weiß ist, handelt es sich wohl um den ersten Druck, dem im gleichen Jahr ein vermehrter zweiter folgte. Zu dem als Verfasser bzw. Übersetzer von Schriften in den Jahren 1686 und 1688 nachweisbaren J.L. SUMATURE DRIVIUS, kann ich außer der Vermutung, er sei ein vertriebener Hugenotte gewesen, keine weiteren Angaben finden. Aus hugenottischer Sicht reflektiert der Verfasser die Situation Frankreichs nach der Aufhebung (1685) des seit 1598 geltenden, die Rechte der Reformierten in Frankreich garantierenden Edikts von Nantes durch LUDWIG XIV. Er warnt vor Aufständen seiner Glaubensgenossen und tritt nachdrücklich für Glaubens- und Religionsfreiheit ein. Mit seiner Politik gefährde der durch Minister und Klerus schlecht beratene König das Reich. – Zu 2) Vereint zwei in den Jahren 1685 (Franckreich schäme dich!: Das ist, heimlich und unverhoffte Entdeckung derer Frantzösischen fast an allen Europäischen Höffen geschmiedete und sehr übel gelungene Rathschläge lesenswürdig der curieusen Welt vor Augen gestellt.) und 1684 (Hanß Knorr der Teutsche, Quackerius. Der Engeländer, Fitzliputzli. Das Frantzmännichen, und der Holländische Muff. Uber die gegenwärtige Unruhe am Nieder-Rhein-Strohm.) zuerst erschienene Pamphlete, in denen auf eher volkstümliche Weise polemisch gegen die Politik Frankreichs unter LUDWIG XIV. argumentiert wird, wobei auch bemerkenswert ist, dass „Fitzliputzli, das Frantzmännichen“ bereits das gleiche Kauderwelsch spricht, wie es 50 Jahre später J.C.TRÖMER seinen „Deusch Franços Jean Chrétien Toucement“ radebrechen lässt.

      Padua: Cadorino, 1686. Half title. Quarto. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title. Moderate soiling to boards, small repair to spine tail. Rear free endpaper lacking. A clean copy. Very good. First issue of Terra Rossa's famous account detailing discoveries in the New World, as denoted by the 1686 date and the privilege below the imprint reading: "Et Privilegio del Serenissimo Principe." Includes much information on Venetian explorers, going so far as to credit Marco Polo with discovering Australia, and attempts to rename Terra Australis as Terra Australe Magallanica to honor Magellan. In this work Terra Rossa "attempted to prove that Venetians had discovered all lands unknown to the ancients, including America and Terra Australis..." (Hiatt, TERRA INCOGNITA, p.261). He also defends the claims of the Zeno brothers to have made a northern discovery of America prior to Columbus. A rare and surprisingly little-known work focused on early exploration of the Southern Hemisphere. SABIN 94858. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 686/157/.

        Mémoires historiques et géographiques du royaume de la Morée

      1686 - (4), 232, 42 pl. Amsterdam, Chez Wolfgang, Waesberge, Boom, & van Someren, 1686, in-12, (4), 232, 42 pl, plein veau d'époque tacheté, dos à cinq nerfs richement orné, Première édition traduite en français d’après l’italien de l'un des ouvrages majeurs du Père Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, grand géographe et cartographe vénitien. Très connu grâce à ses exceptionnels globes faits pour les plus grands d’Europe, et dans les dimensions les plus variées, Coronelli, de retour à Venise, fonde en 1684 l’Accademia cosmografica degli Argonauti, première société géographique visant à favoriser les études cosmo-geo-cartographiques et à en publier les résultats. Élu en 1685 cosmographe officiel de la République de Venise, il acquit le privilège de réaliser un grand Atlas. Entre temps, le gouvernement vénitien décide de publier tout le matériel recueilli pour ce projet, dans Memorie istoriografiche del Regno di Morea e Negroponte et dans l’édition réduite Conquiste della Repubblica in Dalmazia, Epiro e Morea dans l’intention de montrer aux Vénitiens les territoires conquis pendant leurs Campagnes. Mémoires historiques et géographiques du royaume de la Morée parle de la guerre de Morée qui opposa la République de Venise aux Turcs de 1684 à 1699. L’ouvrage eut un tel écho à l’étranger, qu'il fut traduit une quinzaine de fois en deux ans. Coronelli se place en tant que vrai journaliste de guerre et suit jour après jour, muni de cartes et de plans, le commandant Francesco Morosini, qui portera la « Serenissima » à la victoire du Péloponnèse. L'ouvrage contient 42 planches illustrées : vues des villes, plans et éléments historiques. Restaurations aux coiffes Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Document Signed (with her mark), on paper.

      [Philadelphia] Small 4to (19.5 x 18.5 cm, 7.7 x 7.28"), 4 pp., with integral address leaf, 2 pp. blank.. 12 October 1686 A rare glimpse into the earliest days of Philadelphia, this unique document was => written within four years of the city's founding (1682). Widow Elizabeth Shorter was a London glover who moved to Pennsylvania with her grandson Isaac Knight about 1683 and was one of the => First Purchasers, that select group of 751 individuals who bought the first offering of land from William Penn. She was certainly in contact with Penn by 1681, when he signed an indenture to her in London; two years later, he signed an official land grant confirming the location and cost of her 250-acre plot. Witness to the lack of government structure at the time, being => written on scrap paper and without any official notarization, the deed in hand documents the sale of widow Shorter's "housing in the front street of Delawar with my lott" to Christopher Libthorpe for the sum of one hundred pounds sterling. Indited in secretary hand with witnesses' signatures in both italic and secretary, the deed is followed by two blank pages on the interior (as usual); the witnesses were John Morroy (Morrey?) and John Best (Lest?), who both had fine signatures. Not unexpectedly, the widow signed with her mark. A docket on the last leaf's verso reads, "Xher [Christopher] Libthorpe To George Rothe" and another, in a second hand, adds, "and a Deed from Pickering to Post for a lot," with a computation below on the same page. The watermark appears to be a heart-shaped shield crowned by a fleur de lis, or trefoil; however we find no match in Briquet or Gravell. Previously folded in multiple places, and now along bifolium crease only; four small holes in the upper corner where previously stapled or pinned. "Lacing," a result of the iron gall ink's exposure to moisture, is in evidence here but does not affect the legibility or stability of the deed, which is neatly repaired in two places at the outer edge of the first recto near the remnants of the red wax seal. => An attractive relic of colonial American, Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, commercial, legal, and women's history.

        MAPPE - MONDE, GEO - HYDROGRAPHIQUE OU DESCRIPTION GENERALE DU GLOBE TERRESTRE ET ACQUATIQUE EN DEUX - PLANS - HEMISPHERES: OU SONT EXACTEMENT REMARQUEES EN GENERAL TOUTES LES PARTIES DE LA TERRE ET DE L'EAU SUIVANT LES RELATIONS LES PLUS NOUVELLES, PAR G. VALCK.

      AMSTERDAM, dopo il 1686 (con il Privilegio)Incisione originale eseguita su lastra di rame e finemente dipinta alla mano d'epoca in fresca e vivace coloritura. Titolo all'extra - margine superiore; al centro, i due emisferi sormontati dai poli; agli angoli, piacevoli raffigurazioni mitologiche delle quattro stagioni; la gioiosa primavera, l'estate con la produzione dei suoi prodotti, l'autunno con scene pastorali e il rigido inverno; all'angolo inferiore sinistro, piccola edicola con iscritto: Amsterdam, Chez Gerard Valck par le Dam avec Previlegi. La pregevole rappresentazione geografica si basa presumibilmente su una di epoca precedente ideata dal cartografo ed editore francese  Alexis Hubert Jalliot nel 1674. Entrambe le mappe utilizzano la proiezione Sanson - Flamstead, che mostrano parallelismi e l'equatore come linee rette e altri meridiani come curvi. La carta in esame rappresenta il mondo come era conosciuto nella seconda metà del Seicento: la California è ancora raffigurata come un'isola secondo la tradizione cinquecentesca. Solo dopo il viaggio del missionario Eusebio Kino la California venne definita come penisola. Sia per il Sud America che per l'Africa, la mappa di Valck offre significativi miglioramenti descrittivi, così come per dettagli di Asia e India. Gli emisferi del sud, la regione dell'Australia è denominata Nouelle Hollande, con quasi completa delineazione delle coste. Questa fu una grande innovazione rispetto alle precedenti carte di Jaillot, che non aveva ancora definito quei territori. Incisore e artista, Gerald Valck lavorò a Londra e ad Amsterdam, dove collaborò con Peter Schenk, noto cartografo.  Nel 1710, il figlio di Valck, Leonardus, sposò Maria Schenk, e le due famiglie mantennero l'attività cartografica per tutta  la prima metà del XVIII secolo.  Esemplare in buone condizioni, piccolo margine, ma presente tutto intorno alla carta; qualche piccolissima lacerazione ai margini, richiuse al verso della carta o anticamente o con nastro da restauro.
