        THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF PETERBURGH

      London: Printed for Richard Chiswell, 1686. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 371 x 232 mm (14 5/8 x 9 1/8"). 4 p.l., 348 pp. Edited by Simon Patrick. FIRST EDITION. SPLENDID HONEY BROWN DICED RUSSIA BY ROGER PAYNE, covers with wide, intricate, and elegant dentelle frame composed of many small floral tools; raised bands, spine with gilt crest of Sir Richard Colt Hoare in top compartment, gilt titling in next two compartments, and four elaborately tooled compartments below with gilt floral sprigs radiating from a central quatrefoil, interspersed with circlets and many small floral tools; turn-ins with simple gilt rules and delicate floral cornerpieces, endpapers of purple "fine drawing paper" (Payne's words), all edges gilt (joints and a very small portion at spine ends recently and expertly renewed by Courtland Benson). In a (somewhat scuffed) folding cloth box lined with felt. With two illustrations in the text and four plates of views of the cathedral. A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Sir Henry Hope Edwardes and engraved bookplate of W. H. Corfield (see below). Front flyleaf with transcription in Sir Richard Colt Hoare's hand of Payne's very detailed explanation of the work done and the bill for it. Wing G-2246; Foot, "Henry Davis Gift" II, 194 (for another Payne binding with the same early provenance). Spine evenly darkened toward a chocolate brown, moderate foxing to half a dozen leaves, occasional rust spots, light stains, or other trivial imperfections elsewhere in the text, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY DESIRABLE SPECIMEN in generally very fine condition, mostly clean and always fresh internally, and the very special binding entirely solid now, with virtually no wear, and with all of the delicate gilt quite bright. This comprehensive history of the cathedral at Peterborough was bound by one of the most celebrated figures in the history of English bookbinding for one of the major English collectors at the end of the 18th century. Beautifully designed and flawlessly executed, the binding appears to be unrecorded in the major bibliopegic literature and is distinctive in its very substantial size. The son of a diocesan registrar at Peterborough Cathedral, our author Gunton (1609-76) was a canon at the church, fascinated by this looming presence in his life; he spent years collecting data from its monuments and from the records in his father's care. His manuscript notes on the clergy, patrons, architecture, and historical documents were revised after his death by Simon Patrick and published in the present work, which includes important information lost during the Civil War. Roger Payne (1738-97) was apprenticed to the Eton bookseller Joseph Pote, then moved to London, where he first worked as a bookseller before establishing his bindery. Much of his work was commissioned by two clients: (1) the extraordinarily discriminating Rev. Clayton Mordaunt Cracherode (1730-99) of Christ Church, Oxford, whose bequest to the British Museum in the year of his death was, in De Ricci's words, "one of the most valuable . . . that the Museum has ever received," and (2) the celebrated bibliophile George John, second Earl Spencer (1758-1834), called by De Ricci "one of the greatest book collectors . . . in the history of the world." Because the collections amassed by these two bibliopegic giants are now in public institutions (Spencer's books ended up in the John Rylands Library), many of the bindings executed by Payne have been available for study by scholars like Cyril Davenport, whose monograph on Payne, published by the Caxton Club, is indispensable. It has been fashionable over the years to attribute any attractively decorated English binding from the latter part of the 18th century to Roger Payne, often without any shred of definitive evidence. With the present item, however, there are unmistakable matches between distinctive tools used here and those reproduced in Davenport's book. In particular, two of the floral tools used in the dentelle frame--the lily and the tulip with columbine--match those in Davenport's Figure 27. The Henry Davis Gift pictures another Payne binding done for Sir Richard Colt Hoare (1758-1838), using the same eagle head tool in the crest as on our volume. In addition, we have a note on the flyleaf, apparently in Colt Hoare's hand, noting that he bought the book at the Southgate sale in 1795 for £2, 5 shillings and paid Payne £3, 10 shillings for the binding. The transcription of Payne's (rambling and self-congratulatory) bill says in part that "the very magnificent broad borders, with a very great number of Tools, which took [him] a great deal of Time" were part of "quite a new Pattern in the Gothic Taste, and [he is] in great hopes of the Borders being approved; for there is a great deal of work in them; more work in the Borders than expected." A review of the Abbey, Schiff, Davis, Broxbourne Library, and Wormsley Library collections, as well as Maggs catalogues 1075 and 1212 and the British Library Database of Bookbindings locates just one Payne binding taller than the present item, a copy of Estienne's Greek Poets in the Abbey collection standing 388 mm. tall. (Payne's work was done mostly on small volumes--there are only four other books over 300 mm. tall listed in these various sources.) Scion of a banking family, Colt Hoare was a scholarly man who devoted his life to art and antiquities. He expanded his grandfather's famed art collection at Stourhead, the family estate, and added a Regency-style library that is still one of treasures of the National Trust. According to DNB, Colt Hoare "created in his house the scholarly atmosphere of a medieval monastery, without any of the discomforts, and provided most of the documentary sources required by himself and his collaborators for their work on the history and archaeology of Wiltshire. . . . The library was handsomely furnished by Thomas Chippendale the younger, whose ailing business, after he was made bankrupt in 1804, relied heavily on Colt Hoare for survival." A later owner of this volume was William Henry Corfield (1843-1903), a pioneer in household sanitation promotion and a rare book connoisseur with a special interest in fine bindings.

Johann Amos Comenius, Jan Amos Komenský, 1592-1670 bliver betragtet som den moderne pædagogiks fader, hvor billeder var en væsentlig del af indlæringsprocessen.

Overnævnte bog udkom første gang på dansk i 1672 og begge udgaver er meget sjældne. Overnævnte eksemplar må, på trods af sine mangler betragtes som en uhyre bibliofil sjældenhed.

"Gildas minimus" has a caption title and separate pagination and register. A 2 page Welsh poem. (ESTC R224224 & ESTC R5230) Edwards, Welsh-language writer and preacher, Edwards published a Latin pamphlet called Hebraismorum Cambro-Britannicorum specimen (1676), which purports to demonstrate the close connection between the Hebrew and Welsh languages, a theme first developed by Welsh authors in the sixteenth century and obviously attractive to a portrayer of Wales as Israel praesens. His other work of note is Fatherly instructions: being select pieces of the writings of the primitive Christian teachers, translated into English, with an appendix, entituled Gildas Minimus (1686). The appendix contains original sermons written by Edwards ‘to disswade from Apostacy, and those other Abominations that are like to be very pernicious to these Nations, if not timely repented of’ (Edwards, Testimony, 10).

        Relation de ce qui s&#39;est passé a l&#39;audience des Mandarins

      Toulouse: Chez Jean Boude, 1686. Soft cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 8 pp. Bound in marbled wrappers and housed in a fine red morocco case. $3850 Extremely rare first and only edition of this detailed popular newsletter concerning the contemporary reception of three Siamese ambassadors in Paris in September of 1686. The report gives a full description of their entrance, their itinerary, and the names and qualities of the individual ambassadors - whose 9-month stay in northern France between 1686 and 1687 must have provoked enormous interest. Providing the reader with some background, the work notes that the King of Siam, having been only recently convinced of the greatness of Louis XIV and the French nation, has decided to send three more mandarins as envoys. "Ces Mandarins sont tres-honnestes, les meilleures gens du monde, doux, civils, & complaisans, de tres-bonne & agreeable humeur .". According to this account, they arrived at Brest on the 18th of June and reached Paris only on the 12th August. On the &#39;first day of this month of September&#39;, the delegation was officially presented to Louis XIV. Its centerpiece was the King of Siam&#39;s letter to Louis, written on a blade of gold encased in a golden boëte (bottle?) and poised atop a golden chalice, all of which was carried aloft on a machine by 12 Swiss guards. The ambassadors themselves, it is recorded, took care to cover the machine with their parasols. Upon meeting the king, "ils firent une profonde reverence en leur maniere, se prosterant, & mettant leurs mains sur leur vissage". The gifts presented by the envoys are notable for their overwhelming Japanese provenance (a closed center of trade to the French), and are accompanied here by occasional offhand remarks. Two vases of tombac (a flexible alloy similar to brass) are thought "presque aussi précieux que l&#39;or", and are imputed to be "what the ancients called electrum"; two samurai swords presented by the King of Japan to the King of Siam are accompanied by the remark "they say that those who know how to handle these swords properly can cut a man&#39;s body in half; it&#39;s this that makes them beyond price"; etc. An antique marble sculpture apparently depicts a Chinese man whom the Siamese call To inghoing; "we belivee that this is the same as he whom we call Confuscius". The writer of the newsletter seems surprisingly well-informed, and is certainly aware of the plans of the official retinue, suggesting a source perhaps close to the court. "They are presently busy seeing the beauties and the riches of the Capital of our Kingdom. Around February after they have had their final royal audience, they will return and recount all that they have seen, and assuredly they will not forget what they have learned, and understood of the suprising reunion of Protestants to the Roman religion, for the King of Siam having proposed Louis le Grand as a model in all things, and desiring to be able to make his entire kingdom French.has demanded that the King send him missionaries, persons experienced in warfare, wise men, and men learned in many arts." Following this account of the ambassadors&#39; visit is a brief &#39;Description du Royaume de Siam&#39; - with much reference to Arab and Moorish settlements, to the Siamese love of music, to their &#39;superbly-dressed women&#39;, etc. Thanks to royal decree, Siam enjoys public schools in which laws and religion are taught in the vernacular, but the sciences are reserved for a learned tongue. Inspired no doubt by the Chinese rites controversty, the commentator notes that despite their plural deities the Siamese do believe in one Creator of the Earth and the Heavens, and they do maintain that the world will end in fire. The final leaf of the work is occupied with a discussion of the &#39;names and qualities&#39; of the amabassadors. OCLC records only the copy at Cornell. * OCLC 64004509

        Clavis Medica ad Chinarum Doctrinam de Pulsibus

      Six engraved plates & one woodcut in the text. 144 pp. Small 4to, modern half-vellum & marbled boards (some browning throughout due to the quality of the paper). [Nuremberg]: 1686. First separate edition of the complete texts which are "translations of Chinese treatises on pulse medicine with illustrations of hands and wrists to illustrate pulse-taking. The texts published here are different from those published by Cleyer [in 1682]."-Garrison-Morton 6492.1. This is the third earliest western book on Chinese medicine, preceded only by Les Secrets de la Medicine des Chinois (1671) and Cleyer&#39;s book in 1682. In this posthumously published work, edited by Cleyer, Boym describes Chinese traditional medicine and introduces several methods of healing and diagnostics previously unknown in Europe, particularly measurement of the pulse. Boym (1612-59), was a Polish scientist, explorer and a Jesuit missionary to China. He is notable as one of the first westerners to travel within the Chinese mainland and was the author of numerous works on Asian fauna, flora and geography. These texts first appeared in the Misc. cur. Acad. Nat. Cur. of Nuremberg (Dec. II, 4, 1686), pp. 1-144. Very good copy and quite rare. Old engraved bookplate. &#10087; Hagelin, Rare and Important Medical Books in the Library of the Swedish Society of Medicine, pp. 91-93. .
