        1688 Amelot BIBLE French New Testament Illustrated Holy Land Map Port Royal 3v

      A Paris : Chez Francois Muguet, 1688, 87. 1687 - 1688 Amelot BIBLE French New Testament Illustrated Holy Land Map Port Royal 3v An impressive 17th-century printing of the French New Testament. This translation was based on the Clementine Vulgate furnished with notes by Denis Amelote. According to Darlow and Moule, “Amelote (1606-78) was a bitter controversialist against the Jansenists. Annoyed by a satirical replay of P. Nicole, he used his influence to prevent the publication of the newly-completed Port Royal version of the New Testament, which consequently had to be printed outside France. He thus secured an open field for this annotated translation of the New Testament, prepared by himself, and published first in 1666, and again in 1681. According to this own statement, Amelote undertook this work at the request of the Archbishop of Toulouse and the Bishop of Montauban, who had been appointed by l’Assemblee generale du Clerge de France de l’an 1655’ to secure a fresh version. According to the Port-Royalists, confirmed by Sainte-Beuve, Ameote’s production is merely the Port Royal version, disguised by certain changes.” This three-volume set is bound in two tomes – volume 1 dated 1688, volume 2 dated 1687, while volume 3 has only a half-title. It includes foot-notes, tables, and maps. Illustrations include a map of the Holy Land, Paul’s missionary journeys, folding views of the temple of Jerusalem, Herod’s temple, and the city of Jerusalem.

        William Penn’s Letter to King James II: "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God, the things that are God’s."

      London 1687 - Broadsheet. The Speech of William Penn to his Majesty upon his Delivering the Quakers Address. [London, 1687.] 2 pp., quarto (175 x 280 mm). A religious liberty foundation document. On behalf of the Quakers, William Penn appeals to King James II to protect freedom of conscience, starting with the famous quotation from Jesus: "IT was the saying of our Blessed Lord to the Captious Jews, in the case of Tribute, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God, the things that are God's. this distinction ought to be observed by all Men, in the Conduct of their lives, so the King has given Us an Illustrious Example in His own Person that excites Us to it; For while HE was a Subject, HE gave Caesar His Tribute; and now HE is Caesar, gives GOD his Due, (viz) The Sovereignty over Consciences." At the bottom of the second page, James offers his acknowledgement "that conscience ought not to be Forced." In 1687 James II proclaimed the Declaration of Indulgence or Declaration of Liberty of Conscience, the first step in establishing freedom of religion in Great Britain. Complete TranscriptThe SPEECH OF WILLIAM PENN To His MAJESTY, Upon His Delivering the Quakers Address.May it Please the KING,IT was the saying of our Blessed Lord to the Captious Jews, in the case of Tribute, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God, the things that are God's. As this distinction ought to be observed by all Men, in the Conduct of their lives, so the KING has given Us an Illustrious Example in His own Person that excites Us to it; For while HE was a Subject, HE gave Caesar His Tribute; and now HE is a Caesar, gives GOD his Due, (viz) The Sovereignty over Consciences. It were a great shame then, for any English-Man (that pretends to Christianity,) not to give GOD his Due. By this Grace HE has relieved His Distressed Subjects from Their Cruel Sufferings, and raised to Himself a New and Lasting Empire, by adding Their Affections to Their Duty. And We Pray GOD to continue the KING in this Noble Resolution; For HE is now upon a Principle, that has good Nature, Christianity, and the goodness of Civil Society on its side, a Security to Him beyond all the little Arts of Government. I would not that any should think, that We came hither with design to fill the Gazet with Our Thanks, but as Our Sufferings would have moved Stones to Compassion; So We should be harder, if We were not moved to Gratitude.Now, since the KING's Mercy and Goodness have reached to Us throughout the Kingdom of England, and Principality of Wales; Our General Assembly from all those parts, met at London about Our Church-Affairs has appointed Us to Wait upon the KING with Our Humble Thanks, and Me to Deliver them; Which I do by this ADDRESS, with all the Affection and Respect of a Dutiful Subject.His MAJESTIES most Gracious ANSWER.Gentlemen,I Thank You heartily for Your Address, some of You know, (I am sure You do Mr. Pen,) that it was always My Principle, that Conscience ought not to be Forced. And that all Men ought to have the Liberty of Their Consciences: And what I have Promis'd in My Declaration, I will continue to Perform as long as I Live; And I Hope, before I Die, to Settle It so, that After Ages shall have no Reason to alter It.FINIS.ConditionMinor toning at top margin, minor loss at bottom left not affecting text.

      Laurent d’Houry 1687 - Troisième édition augmentée (la première est de 1666), qui se compose de 6 parties (416 pages [414]) auxquelles a été ajouté le secret du remède souverain du prieur de Carrières (6 pages à pagination propre). Le traité est complet : principes, opérations, fourneaux, usages et pratiques de la chimie, transformations des végétaux, les substances liées aux animaux, celles qu’on obtient des minéraux et des métaux, les formules pour la santé, les secrets pour la beauté, les potions les plus diverses Marie Meurdrac (vers 1610-1680) est une des premières chimistes française. Elle s’inspire de la théorie des trois Principes alchimiques de Paracelse (Sel, Mercure et Soufre distillés à partir de substances animales, végétales et minérales) mais écarte volontairement les opérations sur l’or et l’argent. A sa profonde connaissance de l’alchimie, elle joint son savoir basé sur les travaux de Rupescissa, Ramon Llull, Joseph du Chesne et de Nicolas Lémery. Légers manques de cuir, mors superficiellement fendus, réparation ancienne à la planche repliée, autres défauts mineurs, bon état général.

Marie Meurdrac (c. 1610-1680) is one of the first French female chemists. Taking her inspiration in the theory of the three alchemical principles of Paracelsis (salt, mercury and sulfur distilled from animal, vegetable and mineral substances), she voluntarily dismisses operations on gold and silver however. She shows a profound knowledge of alchemy in which she introduces knowledge based on the works of Rupescissa, Ramon Llull, Joseph du Chesne and Nicolas Lemery.

        The History of the Conquest of Spain by the Moors.

      London: printed by F. Leach, for S. H. and are to be sold by T. Fox,, 1687. Together with the Life of the most Illustrious Monarch Almanzor. And of the Several Revolutions of the Mighting Empire of the Caliphs, and of the African Kingdoms. Composed in Arabick by Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq, one of the Generals in that Spanish Expedition; and Translated into Spanish by Michael de Luna, Interpreter to Philip the Second. Now made English. Octavo (186 x 110 mm). Recent calf to style, raised bands within blind rules to spine, gilt-lettered red label, decorative panelling to boards in blind, marbled edges, matching endpapers. Bookplate of Wriothesley Russell (1680-1711), 2nd Duke of Bedford to title verso. Light browning, occasional mild spotting or soiling, original edge-marbling encroaching along foot of title, sigs. [A5-6] slightly loose at top cord, [A5] chipped at upper outer corner, the text unaffacted. Very good. First edition in English of the first part (all published) of Miguel de Luna's Verdadera historia del rey Don Rodrigo (1592-1600), itself purportedly translated from an Arabic source, but in fact an original composition. Luna's account of the Arab conquest of Spain to the year 761 was considered genuine by Southey, dismissed by George Ticknor and other scholars as a forgery, and is now appreciated as an important, essentially literary document from the age of Cervantes, who knew the work. The Verdadera historia and Don Quixote (1605-1615) "abound with the same phrases and diction", and Cervantes specifically ridicules a passage in Luna in which Tariff fulfils a prophecy by the presence of a mole on his back—Quixote strips to reveal his mole as evidence of his strength in Part I Chapter 30 (see Hodges, "Holey Moley: Don Quixote's significant Señal", in Bulletin of the Cervantes Society of America 29:2, 2009). Luna (c.1545–1615) was a physician and court interpreter of Morisco descent. In attributing authorship to an Arab writer he was following what was already an established tradition in post-Reconquista Spain. His account is also notable for contrasting the cruelty of the Visigoths with the virtue and tolerance of their Arab successors: it was possibly this emphasis which irritated 19th century scholars such as Ticknor, who were preoccupied with defining a concept of Spanish identity based on Gothic origins.

        Journal du Voyage de Siam fait en M.DC.LXXXV. et M.DC.LXXXVI.

      Paris Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy 1687 - First edition. 4to., [iv], 416 pp., Title with woodcut vignette; some occasional browning and spotting. Contemporary calf, sides with the gilt arms, spine in six compartments, gilt-lettered red morocco lettering-piece in one, others gilt, neat repairs to extremities, a very handsome example. Rare first edition account of the journal of the Chaumont embassy (1685-1686) sent by Louis XIV to Siam. Choisy was a missionary sent to try to convert King Narai. This mission failed, but Choisy's book, compiled from the experiences of Abbe de Choisy, Father Guy Tachard and the Chevalier de Chaumont, was of great interest and was republished as recently as 1930. Narai was king of Siam from 1656-88, and his credited with producing the first 'golden age' of Thai literature. Encouraged by his foreign minister Constantine Phaulkon the famed Greek adventurer who became a prominent figure in Narai's court, Narai hoped to develop trade relations with the French in order to break the domination of the Dutch East India Company. Embassies were exchanged between Siam and France throughout his reign. Choisy was a colourful character: "De Choisy was born in Paris. His father was attached to the household of the duke of Orléans, and his mother, who was on intimate terms with Anne of Austria, was regularly called upon to amuse Louis XIV. By a whim of his mother, the boy was dressed like a girl until he was eighteen, and, after appearing for a short time in man's costume, he resumed woman's dress on the advice—doubtless satirical—of Madame de La Fayette. He delighted in the most extravagant toilettes until he was publicly rebuked by the duc de Montausier, when he retired for some time to the provinces, using his disguise to assist his numerous intrigues".

        The History of the Conquest of Spain by the Moors. Together with the Life of the most Illustrious Monarch Almanzor. And of the Several Revolutions of the Mighting Empire of the Caliphs, and of the African Kingdoms. Composed in Arabick by Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq, one of the Generals in that Spanish Expedition; and Translated into Spanish by Michael de Luna, Interpreter to Philip the Second. Now made English.

      London: printed by F. Leach, for S. H. and are to be sold by T. Fox, 1687 - Octavo (186 x 110 mm). Recent calf to style, raised bands within blind rules to spine, gilt-lettered red label, decorative panelling to boards in blind, marbled edges, matching endpapers. Bookplate of Wriothesley Russell (1680-1711), 2nd Duke of Bedford to title verso. Light browning, occasional mild spotting or soiling, original edge-marbling encroaching along foot of title, sigs. [A5-6] slightly loose at top cord, [A5] chipped at upper outer corner, the text unaffacted. Very good. First edition in English of the first part (all published) of Miguel de Luna's Verdadera historia del rey Don Rodrigo (1592-1600), itself purportedly translated from an Arabic source, but in fact an original composition. Luna's account of the Arab conquest of Spain to the year 761 was considered genuine by Southey, dismissed by George Ticknor and other scholars as a forgery, and is now appreciated as an important, essentially literary document from the age of Cervantes, who knew the work. The Verdadera historia and Don Quixote (1605-1615) "abound with the same phrases and diction", and Cervantes specifically ridicules a passage in Luna in which Tariff fulfils a prophecy by the presence of a mole on his back—Quixote strips to reveal his mole as evidence of his strength in Part I Chapter 30 (see Hodges, "Holey Moley: Don Quixote's significant Señal", in Bulletin of the Cervantes Society of America 29:2, 2009). Luna (c.1545–1615) was a physician and court interpreter of Morisco descent. In attributing authorship to an Arab writer he was following what was already an established tradition in post-Reconquista Spain. His account is also notable for contrasting the cruelty of the Visigoths with the virtue and tolerance of their Arab successors: it was possibly this emphasis which irritated 19th century scholars such as Ticknor, who were preoccupied with defining a concept of Spanish identity based on Gothic origins. This is the issue with S.H. in the imprint and the dedicatory epistle signed with initials M.T.; a variant imprint the same year had S. H. removed and the epistle signed Matt.

        Relation de l'Inquisition de Goa.

      A Leyde; chez Daniel Gaasbeek; marchand libraire 1687 - small 8vo., (8) + 220pp., small marginal defect in one leaf (C4) with loss of letters from running headline and 3 or 4 letters of text on verso, in 19th century quarter calf over marbled boards, spine fully gilt and lettered, marbled edges. A good, crisp, copy. First edition. Charles Gabriel Dellon (1649-1709) was a French Catholic physician and traveller in the East Indies. After a dispute with the Governor of Daman in 1673, Dellon was arrested and sent to Portuguese Goa to face the Inquisition. In 1677, after two years of torture and five years of galley service, Dellon successfully appealed his case before the Grand Tribunal in Lisbon and was released. His account here is a vivid portrait of the Inquisition in Goa and went through several later editions. The Goa Inquisition was the office of the Portuguese Inquisition acting in Portuguese India, and in the rest of the Portuguese empire in Asia. It was established in 1560, briefly suppressed from 1774 to 1778, and finally abolished in 1812. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Tractatus duo. Primus de remotis et proximis mixti principiis in ordine ad corpus humanum spectatis. Secundus de natura, differentiis, subjectis, conditionibus, & causis fermentationis, ..

      Lyon, Joannem Certe, 1687, 4, (12), 348 pages and 9 mostly folded plates, comtemporary calf with spine gold tooled minor spotting, fine copy. Rare first edition of the Vieussens's first work on anatomy of the heart (well illustrated with 9 folded plate) and nature of the blood. The work is also particulary important for his study on fermentation. "One of Vieussens' major areas of study was fermentation. He investigated the chemical composition of the blood with great fervor but an equal lack of success. The discovery of an acidic salt in the blood was the source of a long and painful public polemic with the Montpellier professor Pierre Chirac, who claimed to be the first to have extracted this substance from the blood. The priority dispute was particularly unfruitful in that the discovery was erroneous. Nevertheless, until the end of his life Vieussens considered his chemical research on the blood to be his most important work." (DSB) Even if Vieussens is also famous for his impressive Neurographia published in 1684/85, his major contribution in medicine are in cardiology for which theTractactus are the first steps. Indeed, published 18/17 years before the better know, Novum vasorum corporis humani systema (1705), this first cardiological work consists the first steps of Vieussens's to his most important contribution in cardiology.Tractatus duo.

Some had noted that the heart was the living pump that sent the blood coursing through the arteries others observed that the heart had a tendency to enlarge when it labored under the disadvantage of a disease or deformity still others noticed that unusual sounds were emitted when the valves of the heart were twisted out of shape. There was one physician who in the early years of modern medicine made the heart his one absorbing interest in life, who studied the heart in all its intricacies of structure, shape and form, and arrived at conclusions regarding its function in health and disease. This physician was Raymond Vieussens. Raymond Vieussens was the son of a lieutenant-colonel in the French army. He was born in the little village of Vieussens in Rouvergue, France, in 1641. Altogether too little is known of his life. He graduated in medicine from the University of Montpellier (whose most illustrious alumnus was Rabelair, doctor, priest, and author). At the age of 30, Vieussens became physician to the Hospital of St. Eloys. Dr. Vieussens was interested in all aspects of human anatomy, but his first great interest was in the nervous System. In 1671, he began a systematic investigation of the nervous System with the stated purpose " .. not only to improve as much as I could the beautiful treatise on the brain and spinal cord of the celebrated Willis, but, in addition, to describe exactly all the nerves of the extremities, the description of which he dared not undertake, saying that it was the work of an infinitely great and infinitely tedious labor .... I undertook to describe the nerves of the skin although M. Diemerbroeck had regarded their descriptions as impossible." Vieussens was setting high and noble tasks for himself. There was not the least doubt that the young doctor had great confidence in his abilities as did all young doctors. At any rate, Vieussens began his task in neuroanatomy with tremendous enthusiasm. During the first ten years of his Service at the Hospital of Sr. Eloys he dissected 500 human bodies in an attempt to find out what caused their deaths, at the same time paying particular attention to the structure of the nervous System. He used these bodies "not only to discover the normal structure of the brain and spinal cord, but also to follow the nerves from their origins to their insertions."In 1684 Vieussens assembled all his dissection notes and observations regarding the nervous System and published them in book form under the title "Neurographia Universalis." This immediately became the best and most authoritative work of its kind, and Vieussens was catapulted into fame. Honors came fast. He was immediately elected a member of the Academy of Sciences in Paris. In England Vieussens' book was received with equally great enthusiasm, and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in London. The book was written with such fluent grace and easy style that even laymen could read and understand it. Rather astonishingly for such a scholarly work it became a best seller, ln fact, the king of Spain was so much interested that he read the entire work during his trip from Montpellier to Madrid. There is now no doubt that Vieussens "Neurographia" was the most complete work on the nervous System of the time. It gave the most complete description of the brain and spinal cord, pointing out that the spinal cord is not simply a Prolongation of the brain but an independent structure showing enlargements where the nerves emerge at various places. He further showed that the spinal cord has functions of its own which are of the utmost importance in the human body and described various parts of the brain for the first time, notably the pyramids and olivary bodies. From then on his reputation became world-wide. In 1688 he was called to Paris to attend the Marquis de Wardes and was granted a pension of one thousand pounds a year by Louis XIV. "His Majesty orderd me," said Vieussens, "when I had the honor to thank. him for the great favor, to continue to work as much as I could and make new discoveries in the human body." The new problem that Vieussens assigned himself was the study of-the lymphatics and blood vessels of the body. He entered upon this new task with great vigor. A short time after his arrival in Paris, Mme. de Montpensier, the cousin of Louis XIV, appointed Vieussens her physician, a post he held until her death in 1693. After this he returned co Montpellier and in 1705 published a book embodying his studies of the lymphatics and blood vessels which attracted widespread attention and praise.There is no doubt that Raymond Vieussens was a man of great talent and versatility. He was not merely content to be known as a great anatomist he also wanted fame as a chemist. Unfortunately, he was not very proficient in this field. For example, he believed that he had made a great discovery by distilling an acid from a mixture of blood and clay. He obtained permission to demonstrate the new discovery publicly at Montpellier, in the great amphitheatre of the faculty of medicine before both professors and students. He had spoken before the assembly for only a short time when one of the faculty members, Chirac, arose and claimed the discovery as his own. In the resultant confusion, the meeting was hurriedly adjourned. The dispute continued to rage, however, until Astruc, one of the leading doctors of the day, was induced to act as an arbiter. He decided that it was absurd co quarrel over an imaginary substance and that the acid obtained by distillation did not come from the blood but from the sub-stances added co it. Thereafter Vieussens determined to devote his talents and energies to more familiar fields, namely, anatomy and physiology. After completing his work on the lymphatics and blood vessels, he "recognized the impossibility of discovery and explained clearly the primary, natural, moving principle of those liquids without having also given a clear idea of the true structure of the heart." This naturally led Vieussens to a careful study of the heart, which, when published in book form, was the most thorough study co appear up to that time. Vieussens mixed fancy with fact in his writings. Although some of his speculations were erroneous, others were strangely prophetic of modern findings concerning the functions of the human heart. Vieussens' book was an attempt to explain the structure and movements of the heart, and he described many cases of heart disease to aid in his explanations. His work on the heart was arranged and written in an orderly and logical manner, beginning with a discussion of the outermost covering of the heart, the pericardium. Vieussens vividly described the clinical course of several patients who had died of an inflammation of the pericardium and described what he found at autopsy. Among other things, Vieussens described the course of the muscular fibers of the heart remarkably well. He correctly described the structure of the left ventricle, the large chamber, the course of the coronary vessels that supply the heart with blood, and the valve in the large coronary vein. The high point in his book is reached in Chapter XVI, which described the internal surface of the left ventricle. It is here that we find a description of a patient suffering from stenosis (closing up) of the mitral valves and of another patient suffering from aortic insufficiency (the valves not closing properly). The first of these patients was a druggist, Thomas d'Assis, aged 30. He was admitted to St. Eloys Hospital where Dr. Vieussens examined him. "I examined his state he was lying in bed, his head high. His respiration seemed to me very difficult, and his pulse appeared feeble and quite irregular his lips were the color of lead, and his eyes were downcast the legs and thighs were swollen and cold rather than warm." This patient died one week later, and Vieussens performed an autopsy. He found the heart to be markedly enlarged, the coronary veins dilated, and the cavity of the right ventricle and the right auricle had become excessively large. Vieussens continued his autopsy, and "in examining the extraordinary dilation of the trunk of the left pulmonary vein, and of its common op

Il Tavernier (Parigi, 1605-Mosca, 1689), barone di Aubonne e grande viaggiatore in Oriente,visitò primamente Costantinopoli nel 1630, allorché prese parte ad una guerra contro i Turchi. Dalla Turchia egli proseguì alla volta della Persia; tornato in Francia, ripartì per le sue peregrinazioni asiatiche nel 1638, spingendosi sino a Golconda, dove a lungo dimorò e si arricchì commerciando in pietre preziose. Egli fece la spola tra la Francia e le Indie per altre quattro volte e ricevette una patente di nobiltà dal Re Sole in quanto i suoi traffici di gemme lo avevano reso grato alla corte francese. Si spense a Mosca nel 1689. Cfr. Blackmer, 230. Atabey, 1199. Wing, 255. Brunet, V, 681. Graesse, VI, 43. Cfr. Cox, I, 275: We discover in his writings a greater compass of thought and a more masterly turn in his observations than in almost any other book of the kind. The interest in Taverniers travels lies in the personal experiences and adventures he relates. Italiano

        Fasciculus geomanticus, in quo varia variorum opera geomantica continentur.

      "Verona" [= Frankfurt am Main], 1687. - 647, (1) pp. 197, (1) pp. With title-page printed in red and black, 5 (of 6) large folding letterpress tables, 1 double-page engraved folding plate with 2 engraved illustrations, and some woodcut illustrations and numerous letterpress geomantic figures in text. With (2): Tabulae geomanticae, seu liber singularis de tribus ultimis ex antiquo manuscripto de anno MDXXXV. Iam primo luci datus, annexis duabus tabellis huic studio mirè inservientibus, caeteroquin utilibus & jucundis. Frankfurt am Main, Johann David Zunner, 1693. With 2 letterpress folding tables following text, and nearly 200 pages of letterpress tables with geomantic figures. 2 works in 1 volume, bound in reverse order. 8vo. Contemporary vellum. First edition of a collection of three texts on geomancy, a divination system with Arabian origins. Geomancy comes from the Ancient Greek "geômanteía", a translation of the Arabic term "'ilm al-raml", the "science of the sand". It includes texts by the English physician and astrologer Robert Fludd (1574-1637), the French physician Henri de Pisis and the Arab Alfakini. It is preceded by its separately published supplement Tabulae geomanticae, together forming "the standard printed Latin source for the rules of geomantic practice [.] a handbook and compendium not since rivalled for clarity and completeness" (Skinner). - Fludd's treatise "De Animae intellectualis Scientia seu geomantia" was first published in his magnum opus "Utriusque Cosmi maioris salicet et minoris metaphysica" (1617-19), and appeared slightly altered in the present work. "Fludd [.] tried to present [geomancy] as a science of intellectual soul in which intellectual rays emanated from the mind to mundane affairs and then returned to the center with tidings of the future [.] He discusses how the geomancer should so dispose himself that the intentions of his mind are clearly emitted [.] Fludd's treatise is immediately followed by a longer geomancy by H. de Pisis [first published in 1638]. The work is divided into three parts devoted respectively to the theory, practice and questions taken from previous authors. The theory is largely astrological. Instead of jotting down four rows of dots at random, a wheel with sixteen projections is spun or whirled in order to obtain one of the sixteen geomantic figures. Fludd is cited more than once, also Arabic authors like Geber and Aomar" (Thorndike). The last treatise contains the geomantic questions of the Arab Alfakini, son of Abizarch, based on a manuscript from 1535 and published here for the first time. The manuscript was a Latin translation by Plato of Tivoli (fl. first half of the 12th century), known for his translations of Arabic texts. A supplement to this last text, containing almost 200 pages of tables, is bound first. It opens with a series of 25 numbered questions, the answers to these questions can be found in the tables of the matching geomantic figure. - With a crude drawing of a head on pastedown. Lacking one letterpress folding table in the main work. Browned throughout, as usual, some occasional smudges, a few tears along the folds of the folding tables, and some wormholes in the first two leaves, resulting in a small hole in the gutter of the title-page, otherwise internally still good. Binding soiled and with crudely restored spine. VD 17, 7:692678X & 39:120436C. Caillet 4035. Thorndike VIII, 481f. S. Skinner, Terrestrial Astrology: Divination by Geomancy (1980).

        Caerte vande Cust Carolina Tusscheb B de S Matheo en C. Henry op Niew Verbeetert door

      Jacobus Robyn met Privilegio Voor is Iaaren A'o, Amsterdam, 1687 - Carolina First state. Double-page engraved chart, with fine hand-colour in part and in outline. Large-scale sea chart of the Carolina coast - published in Roggeveen's exceedingly rare sea pilot 'Het Brandende Veen'. In 1687 Robijn replaced the earlier chart of the south-east with this one. It is interestingly derived from Johannes van Keulen's 'Pas Kaart Van de Kust van Carolina,' 1684, the publisher whom he had been working with in 1679. Robijn rotates the projection to a north-south one and in the process eliminates the south portion of Chesapeake Bay. The coastline is virtually identical but nomenclature does vary. One notable new addition is B de S. Anna and a sand bar is also placed at C Faire. The position of Charles Town is still on the south bank of the Rio Grande, a position from which it relocated in 1680. Roggeveen, born in Delshaven, came to Middleburg, the seat of both the Dutch East and West India Companies, in 1658. He worked for both companies teaching the art of navigation and helped to maintain their collections of hydrographic manuscripts and charts, including Spanish portolans of the West Indies. In the mid-1660s, assisted by his access to these collections, Roggeveen embarked upon compiling a series of large-scale charts of the North American coastline, West Indies, and, later, West Africa. Many of his charts are based upon the earlier large-scale work of Hessel Gerritsz and Joan Vingboons, both cartographers for the Dutch East and West India Companies, but Roggeveen's work was the first to show the whole coastline of North America and the Caribbean. He called this pilot 'Het Brandende Veen' or 'The Burning Fen'; a pun on his name, as 'veen' means 'fen', and a heap of burning fen represents a fire on the coast to guide or warn ships. The first edition of the atlas was published in 1675 by Pieter Goos, however, due to the death of Goos in the same year, and that of Roggeveen four years later, a second edition would not be published until 1680, by which time the plates had been acquired by the chart dealer Jacobus Robijn. Robijn went on to republish the second edition in 1689, with a third edition appearing in 1698. Burden 629 state 1. [Attributes: First Edition]

      London: Printed for Ric. Chiswell, at the Rose and Crown in St. Paul's Church-Yard, MDCLXXXVII [1687]. Folio, 720 pp., two full-page engraved plates, engraved title and frontis.Contemporary paneled calf, gilt tooling, raised bands with gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, Binding a bit rubbed, calf flaking off and cracked especially along spine, some scratches on boards, tape repair on endpapers, internally bright; very good. Bookplate of Virginia Hobart. Second edition. Immediately after the English Civil War ended, King Charles I was executed. Just days after his execution a detailed justification of Charles's role and policies in the war appeared in print under the title Eikon Basilike (1649). Parliament suppressed the text, it's printing and sale, which is why the title page has little information about its authorship. Around the end of the 17th century John Gauden became the generally accepted compiler, and probably used some of the King's actual writing. Wing C2076.

De la Loubère also brought to France from his Siamese travels a very simple method for creating n-odd magic squares, known as the "Siamese method" or the "de la Loubère method", which apparently was initially brought from Surat, India by another Frenchman by the name of M. Vincent, who was sailing on the return ship with de la Loubère. This volume contains a chapter of the "Jeu des Echecsw of Chinois". The panels show, inter alia, an illustration for Echiquier's Chinois and a coconut tree.Lothar Maximilian Lorenz Schmid (10 May 1928 ? 18 May 2013) was a German chess grandmaster.
