        The Crucified Jesus: or, A Full Account of the Nature, End, Design & Benefits of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper with Necessary Directions, Prayers, Praises and Meditations, To Be Used by Persons Who Come to the Holy Communion

      London: Printed for Sam Lowndes, 1686 The rare first edition. There were five editions printed in the 17th century and many more in the 18th century. Contemporary gilt-tooled and paneled morocco. Decorative gilt spine with raised bands. All edges gilt. . Octavo. Copper engraved frontispiece by Faithorne. Wood-engraved headpieces and initial letters. Title page printed in black and red. Some leaves are misnumbered, but text is consecutive and complete. Binding extremities rubbed. Front hinge starting but still sound. Offsetting from frontispiece to preliminary blank and title page. Occasional soiling and foxing. Contemporary inscriptions and one later pencil inscription on preliminary blanks. A very good copy of a scarce book in an attractive binding. Anthony Horneck (1641-1697) was a Church of England clergyman. He shared the orthodox protestant belief in witches, contributing an appendix of Swedish cases to Joseph Glanville's Saducismus triumphatus (1682, second edition). In the 17th century, both the Lutheran and the Reformed orthodox parties displayed an unparalleled enthusiasm for Rabbinic and Hebrew studies; this was the strongest feature of Horneck's intellectual equipment and led to the award of a Cambridge DD in 1681. Much of Horneck's literary output was devoted to the rules of life for Christians, and his Fire of the Altar, a work designed to assist the devout communicant, ran to at least fourteen editions. In 1693, he became chaplain to William III and the first of a series of court chaplains and German preachers in the Savoy who played a distinguished role in British religious life for most of the eighteenth century.

        The History of Hai Eb'n Yockdan, an Indian Prince: or, the Self-Taught Philosopher.

      London: for Richard Chiswell, and William Thorp, Bookseller in Banbury,, 1686. Written originally in the Arabick Tongue … Wherein is demonstrated, by what Steps and degrees, humane Reason, improved by diligent Observation and Experience, may arrive to the knowledge of natural things, and from thence to the discovery of Supernaturals; more especially of God, and the Concernments of the other World. Set forth not long ago in the Original Arabick, with the Latin Version, by Edw. Pocock …1671. And now Translated into English. Octavo (181 × 110 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, small gilt foliate lozenges to the compartments, double fillet panel in blind to the boards, edges sprinkled red. With the initial licence leaf. Slightly rubbed, some restoration on the joints, lacking letterpiece, small hole in B7, not affecting text, light browning overall, a very good copy. First edition thus, the Ashwell translation into English of this highly significant work; rare in commerce with just four separate copies seen at auction since 1939, this copy from the library of the Earls of Macclesfield at Shirburn Castle, with book plate and blind-stamps as usual. "On one level, the Tufaylian narrative is an adventure story: an abandoned infant, Hayy ibn Yaqzan ["Alive son of Awake"], grows up on an uninhabited island where he is nurtured by a gazelle … [and] discovers the laws of the universe, eventually achieving a mystical state. His meeting with Absal, someone from another island ?- civilized this time ?- leads to his contact with society. This contact is not fruitful, and both men return to the[ir] original island[s] to live happily ever after" (Fedwa Malti-Douglas, "Hay ibn Yaqzan as Male Utopia" in Laurence Conrad, ed., The World of Ibn Tufayl, p. 53). Ibn Tufayl's work has been identified as a likely source for Robinson Crusoe, the origin of the philosophical novel and the Entwicklungsroman, as well as a key influence on the development of Enlightenment thought, and in particular Locke's Essay on Human Understanding: "One could call this work, with perfect justification, a case study for the main thesis of Locke's Essay" (G.A. Russell ed., The 'Arabick' Interest of the Natural Philosophers in Seventeenth-Century, p. 224). Ibn Tufayl (d. 1185) was a Spanish Muslim who served as court physician to Abu Ya'qub Yusuf, Almohad ruler of Morocco and Andalusia (DSB, XIII, p. 488), "the only one of the early Muwahhid [Almohad] caliphs to display an interest in philosophy"; it was at his court that Ibn Tufayl managed to compose a work which "reflects Neoplatonic elements picked up, inter alia from two works by al-Ghazali: al-Munqidh min al-dalal [The Deliverer from Error] and Mishkat al-anwar [The Niche of Lights]; Ibn Sina's [Kitab] al-Isharat wa'l-tanbihat [Book of Pointers and Reminders] and his Kitab al-Shifa' [Book of Healing] are both important sources of ideas and direct quotations, not only in Ibn Tufayl's conception of Neoplatonic philosophy, but also in his psychology and thinking on cognition. Perhaps most interesting of all, the very act of communicating his philosophical message in the form of an allegorical tale reflects an attitude toward demonstrative validity grounded squarely ?- if not explicitly, on the Poetics of Aristotle and al-Farabi's commentary on this work … Not less important is the dimension of Sufi theosophy" (Laurence Conrad, "Introduction", in op. cit. pp. 14-16). "The younger Edward Pococke, a son of the first Laudian professor of Arabic at Oxford, published the Arabic text with a Latin translation in 1671, under the title Philosophus autodidactus. From this Latin, an English translation was made in 1674 by a Scottish Quaker, George Keith, through whom it influenced the Quaker theology of the period. Another English translation was made in 1686 by George Ashwell, an Anglican controversialist … among other aims, Ashwell hoped that the work of this 'self-taught philosopher' would be a corrective to the burgeoning rationalism of his contemporaries" (ODNB).

Nuremberg: Endter, 1686. 200 x 163 mm. Vellum ca. 1686, head of spine and hinges repaired. Occasional light foxing, but fine. From the library of anthropologist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (1752-1840), with booklabel bearing his autograph signature on the front pastedown and annotations and underlinings possibly his on at least 50 leaves. Modern bookplate of Gordon W. Jones, M.D. First Edition of Georg Abraham Mercklin?s considerably expanded version of van der Linden?s bibliography of medicine. First published in 1637, Van der Linden?s was the most complete medical bibliography of its time; it was also the most modern of early medical bibliographies, both in its contents and format. Mercklin (1664-1702) supplied corrections, biographical material on authors, and additions that included the innovative listing of articles from the publications of learned societies. This copy is from the library of Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, the founder of modern anthropology. He was the author of De generis humani varietate nativa (1775), in which he divided humanity into four races based on head shape, skin color and hair type; he later added a fifth race, and in the expanded third edition of De generis (1795) he introduced the famous terms ?Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American and Malayan? to describe the ?white, yellow, black, red and brown? varieties of mankind.

        Les plaintes des Protestans, cruellement opprimez dans le royaume de France

      Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau 12mo (13.7 cm, 5.4"). [2], 192 pp.. 1686 First edition of these "Déclamations énergiques contre Louis XIV, à l'occasion des persécutions suscitées aux protestants" (Brunet), written by a Huguenot minister and theologian who fled France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. The work was issued under the fictitious Marteau imprint, well known as a shelter for satirical, political, pirated, and otherwise questionable or potentially scandalous works; this is an early "Marteau" item, with the first such imprint having appeared in 1660. 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.

Parentis Caspari Bartholini, Ad Circulationem Harvejanam, Et Vasa Lymphatica Quintum Renovata : Cum Iconibus novis, & Indicibus. - - An important early, very well illustrated edition of this standard anatomy by the Danish physician Thomas Bartholinus (1616-1680), who revised his father's work. With additional title engraved by G. Appelmans and an engraved portrait of the author pinx. by Ditmer and sculp. by G. Appelmans, and over 120 mostly full-page figures in the text and folding plates. - - The book is divided into 4 'libri' dealing with the lower torso, the thorax cavity, the head, and the limbs, joints and muscles, and 4 'libelli' on the veins, the arteries, the nerves, and the bones, cartilage and ligaments. It concludes with two letters from Johann Walaeus to the author on the subject of the circulation of blood and chyle within the body. The work is dedicated to King Christian V of Denmark. - - Four of the images from the "De ossibus" section in Bartholin's "Anatome" were adapted for use in the "Kaitai shinsho" (1774), the first Japanese anatomical treatise based directly on Western materials. The images are Tabula II, showing two views of the skull; Tabula VI, showing the upper and lower portions of the skull's interior; figures I - III of Tabula VII, illustrating types of vertebrae; and the folding plate of the skeleton opposite p. 748. - - In Wale's important letter to Bartholinus on the circulation of the blood, he gives a very early convincing proof of HARVAY's discovery according to the laws of hydrodynamic with a plate which shows a simple experiment on a dog to confirm Harvey?s doctrine. - - Thomas Bartholin of Copenhagen was at once the most prolific and the most widely read of the anatomists of the seventeenth century. - - Waller No. 713

The copy, however, is very good light and fresh. An error instead of the binder 257 sheet after an introductory leaflet (ad Lectorum) and after the slip 259.Ce didactic poem was a great success in its time because of its general themes, the two poems are indeed a universal history of fishing and navigation. The fisheries is illustrated by various eclogues, the navigation is divided into eight livres.Ex libris weapons Rev. Fred.

        Journal du voiage du Chevalier Chardin en Perse et aux Indes Orientales, par la Mer Noire et par la Colchide: qui contient le voiage de Paris à Ispahan [Bound after:] Histoire de la Ville, Et de l'Estat de Genève

      chez Jean Wolters et Ysbrand Haring / Frans Halma 1686 / 1685, Amsterdam / Utrecht - 12mo (155 x 88 mm). 432pp., [7]. Full-page engraved portrait of Chardin above his heraldry bearing arms of two rosettes, chevron and bird, additional engraved title, 16 engraved plates, including two chapter headpieces (12 folding are maps, city panoramas or charts). The first English edition appeared in 1686, in London by Moses Pitt of 1686; Chardin having settled in England after his travels and was knighted there by Charles II. The title was reprinted twice in Amsterdam, in the original French, at different locations. First, at Abraham Wolfgang and then at Wolters and Haring as in this copy. Contemporary vellum, ms. title on spine with foldover edges, speckled edges; (light soiling and few small stains, few minor tears on engraved title, or marginal wear to plates). A very nice copy with plates in excellent shape. [Bound after:] SPON, Jacob (1647-1685). Histoire de la Ville, Et de l'Estat de Genève. Utrecht: Frans Halma, 1685. 522pp., [16 of table]. Woodcut printer’s device of Halma with motto "Vivitur ingenio" (one lives on in spirit) to title, additional engraved title, 6 plates of which 3 are folding among which the view of the Geneva region with placenames highlighted in yellow, woodcut headpieces and decorative initials; (one small fold-tear to Geneva plate). Formerly in the collection of famed bibliophile Henri Burton of Geneva, his morocco bookplate neatly to front endpaper. French sammelband of the ‘Travels of Sir Jean Chardin;’ one of the finest works of early Western scholarship on Persia and India, and Spon’s ‘History of Geneva,’ from the collection of Henri Burton. A great deal of European travel writing details the history of Europe’s relationship to the Orient, a place highly exoticized by western observers. Jean Chardin was a trader and the son of a jeweler who first went to the Levant in 1665 to purchase gems. He made a second journey in 1671 in the company of the artist Guillaume Grelot whom he met in Istanbul, and whose drawings inspired the engravings in the present work. This edition comprises the first volume of the author’s manuscript dealing with the period 1671-1673, and is all that was published until 1711. His work is divided into four parts: the first, recounts his journey from Paris to Ispahan (1671-77), the second describes Persia and Ispahan, the third the ruins of Persepolis and the fourth gives a history of Persia, based on Persian writers. /// Spon (1647-1685) was a doctor and pioneering archaeologist of Greek antiquities. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, he fled France for Switzerland, dying not long after in Geneva. His history of Geneva, first published in 1680, was translated into English in 1687. Chardin, an experienced trader, is in a position to give detailed accounts of trade-routes, prices, articles bought and sold, customs problems and so on, whereas Spon is primarily interested in Antiquity, concentrating on giving the exact wording of inscriptions, illustrations of medals and ancient buildings, and the comparison of towns and landscapes with the descriptions which appear in Classical texts. A fine sammelband, neat and sturdy, contained two important travel texts printed within just one year of each other. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, just two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England. The University was involved with several printers in Oxford over the next century, although there was no formal university press. In 1586 the University of Oxford's right to print books was recognized in a decree from the Star Chamber. This was enhanced in the Great Charter secured by Archbishop Laud from King Charles I, which entitled the University to print 'all manner of books'. Delegates were first appointed by the University to oversee this process in 1633. Minutes of their deliberations are recorded dating back to 1668. The structure of Oxford University Press (OUP) as it exists today began to develop in a recognizable form from that time. The University also established its right to print the King James Authorized Version of the Bible in the seventeenth century. This Bible Privilege formed the basis of OUP's publishing activities throughout the next two centuries. From the late 1800s OUP began to expand significantly, opening the first overseas OUP office in New York in 1896.

        Fleta Minor. The Laws of Art and Nature, in Knowing, Judging, Assaying, Fining, Refining an Inlarging the Bodies of confin'd Metals. In Two Parts. The First contains Assays of Lazarus Erckern, Chief Prover ( oe Assay-Master General of the Empire of Germany)...The Second contains Essays on Metallick Words, as a Dictionary to many pleasing Discourses

      London: Printed for and sold by Stephen Bateman, 1686. Second edition. Frontispiece & Illustrated with 44 sculptures. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary quarter calf and boards, rebacked, later endpapers; corner of title page torn away, first three leaves waterstained at lower edge. A good sound copy. Pettus was deputy governor of the royal mines for over thirty-five years. The first part is translated from the German of Erckern, but the second part is Pettus' own contribution to the lexicography of metals - and wonderfully anecdotal and original it is as this from his entry on "DUNG": "...among the Indians it was usual, that when they intended Homage to their Superiors, or welcome too their Friends, they did evacuate their Dung into their Hand, and so daub it on the Face of whom they intended to honour or pleasure, and was ever accepted by them, as the first and best of the Welcoming Ceremonies: for Agricola tells us of Mans-Dung made as sweet as Civit. But to return nearer home, when I remained in London, during the great Plague in 1666, Dr. Glisson (famous in his time) being my old Friend and Acquaintance, perswaded me to take a piece of his constant Antidote, which was only the Dung of one that had dyed of the Plague, dryed, and so kept in a foraminous Box, for the best Antidotical Perfume; but I thank God I escaped without it..." Engaging, too, are the delightful engravings which embellish the work.

Frontispiz. Titel in Rot und Schwarz. Halle, Christoph Mylius Erben und Jena, gedruckt mit Nisischen Schriften, 1685. I. Erste Ausgabe wirklich gehaltener Reden. Wird sonst immer die Rede Lohensteins an Hoffmannswaldaus Grab als seltenes Beispiel einer nicht nur akademisch formulierten, sondern wirklich gehaltenen Rede aufgeführt, liegen hier 44 reale Beispiele barocker Redekunst vor. Die Sammlung der zu fürstlichen oder sonstigen Anlässen gehaltenen Reden wird eingeleitet durch einen sehr interessanten 'Discurs von der Art, Beschaffenheit und Nutzen der Reden', in dem viel über die Entwicklung der Rhetorik und Sprache, über den Unterschied zur Redekunst in anderen Sprachen usw. abgehandelt wird. – Letztes Blatt und Innenspiegel mit drei Wurmstichen. Selten. – VD17 1:000381X. Maltzahn II S. 238. Nicht bei Goedeke, Faber du Faur u. a. – II. Das vorgebundene Rhetorik-Werk ist abwechslungs- und aufschlussreich. Die Beispiele sind kürzer und sachlicher und das bürgerliche Element nimmt einen bedeutend größeren Raum ein. Im Handel wird das Werk manchmal unter Johann Riemer geführt und ist auch zuweilen mit einem bekannten Werk desselben zusammengebunden. Wir konnten aber keinen Beleg dafür finden. Auch Dünnhaupt nennt diesen Titel nicht, auch nicht unter den Fehlattributionen. – VD17 3:609433Y. [Attributes: First Edition]
