Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de
Printed by Tho. Hodgkin, and are to be sold by John Newton, London, 1687. First edition of the first illustrated edition in English of Don Quixote. Folio, bound in three quarters calf over marbled boards, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands. With copper-engraved frontispiece and eight copper-engraved plates, each bearing two images. Translated by John Phillips. In very good condition with all plates present. In near fine condition. An exceptional example. Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked. With his somewhat confused laborer-turned-squire, Sancho Panza, they roam the world together and have adventures that have haunted reader's imaginations for nearly four hundred years. Don Quixote is generally recognized as the first modern novel. Over those years, it has had an incredible influence on thousands of writers, from Dickens to Faulkner, who once said he reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible". Vladimir Nabokov is quoted as saying, "Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality. He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ussher, James.
Impensis Benj. Tooke, 1687. Ussher (1581-1656), Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, is most remembered by the general public for his calculation -- based upon his literal reading of the Old Testament -- that the first day of creation was 23 October 4004 bc (Julian calendar). The present work was first published in Dublin in 1639 and is here in the second edition "in utraque parte ipsius reverendissimi autoris manu passim aucta & nusquam non emendata." The DNB online writes of the Antiquitates: "In 1639 came the culmination of Ussher's researches into the early history of Britain and Ireland, with the publication of his Britannicarum ecclesiarum antiquitates, a monumental work that set out to trace the development of Christianity in these islands from its misty origins to the end of the seventh century. . . . During the 1630s, as his historical interests matured, it became evident that the fiercely anti-Catholic and apocalyptic tone of his earlier writings was much less prominent. But one contemporary concern remained evident in Antiquitates -- Ussher's anti-Arminianism: the work contained yet another treatment of the efforts to stamp out Pelagianism in Britain."

CHAUCER, Geoffrey
1687. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "all that glitters is not gold" - Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales. English folio 17th-century Chaucer's are extremely scarce in themselves, but this third Speght edition is considered extremely important! This was the last 'black letter' edition of Chaucer's works and includes the famous engraved Gower portrait with genealogical figures on the frontispiece. This printing is a reissue of the 1602 Speght, which included "The Court of Love," which wasn't part of the Chaucer anon until 1561. A glossary and four other new pieces were added to this edition as well - "The Flower and the Leaf," "Chaucer's Dream," "Jacke Upland," and "Chaucer's A B C." However, this third edition includes for the first time the printed conclusions on 'Cook's Tale' and 'Squire's Tale', "Siege of Thebes" by John Lydgate, and a portrait of Chaucer - not in any other edition!

Zauchenberg based the map on the 17th century map by Isreal Holztwurm, but modernised the details and details on the infrastructure. The upper view of Klagenfurt is based on a copper engraving from Valvasor’s Topographia archiducatus Carinthiae from 1668. The image in the lower left cortner showcases the ancient ritual of inauguration of a Duke of Carantania. The Duchy of Carantania was a Slavic principality that emerged in the second half of the 7th century. In 889 it became March of Carinthia, a frontier district of the Carolingian Empire. The principality of Carantania is notable for the ancient inauguration of Carantanian dukes in the church in Maria Saal and on a on the Prince's Stone, an ancient Roman column capital, on the place of the ruined Roman city Virunum. The ceremony was held in Slovenian and German language. It was last perfor … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIORDANI Vitale (1633-1711)
TYPIS ANGELI BERNABO'. Legatura coeva in cartonnage con dorso ricoperto in carta marmorizzata, disegnini geometrici al piatto anteriore che si presenta slabbrato al bordo esterno. Prima Opera: 1 carta bianca; 6 non numerate, compreso frontespizio con titolo, fregio tipografico e antiche note cassate; 14 pagine numerate; 1 carta bianca. Seconda Opera: 8 pagine non numerate, compreso frontespizio con titolo e ampia vignetta incisa con stemma araldico sorretto da due putti alati; 30 pagine numerate; da 31 a 40 carte numerate; da 41 a 98 pagine numerate; 1 carta bianca. Le pagine 97 e 98 sono dedicate al celebre Contra Synopsium. Prima edizione per la prima opera, seconda edizione per la seconda opera. Ricciardi, circa il primo testo, cita un'edizione del 1685, di cui però non vi sono tracce, così, come per il secondo testo, cita un'edizione del 1686, ma il Cinti esprime la sua perplessità dando come prima edizione quella in esame del 1688. Il primo volume, pur se di poche pagine, è un raro trattato sulla meccanica e le teorie gravitazionali di Galileo e Torricelli. Giordani dimostra la correttezza della proposizione galileiana-torricelliana mediante quattro teoremi, in cui assume le proposte galileiane su corpi soggetti alla gravità. Il lavoro di Giordani è stato oggetto di critiche da parte dei gesuiti, al quale ha risposto un anno dopo in Fundamentum doctrinae motus gravium, la seconda opera del volume in esame. Esemplare in discrete condizioni, sciupature alla legatura come già segnalato, allentato, sporadiche arrossatture a qualche carta, "in barbe". 1687 / ROMA, EX TYPOGR … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nurnberg: Berlag Leonhard Loschge , 1687 An extremely scarce set of accounts of the Great Turkish War between the Holy League of European Powers and the Ottoman Empire. Very little detail is available on this work. In contemporary full vellum binding with decorative title; rubricated title and 26 plates, of which 15 are folding. The vellum binding has stamped initials and a date to the front board and inked titles to the spine. It is a little grubby, but is sound and in good condition. The front pastedown could be an old envelope with a pasted bookplate coat of arms across and some pencil marks. Contents: decorative title; rubricated title; text 800 pp plus index 12pp and final blank. Text with decorative headpieces and initial capitals. The paper is brown-toned and there is occasional staining but overall contents are in good condition. A previous owner has done some ink underlining (brown ink, occasionally light green ink - both pale) - generally of people's names. 7 of the folding plates have had some repair with archival tape - there is minimal loss of content - and the larger folding plates protrude slightly so the edges are more fragile and browned. There is a small repaired hole in the bottom margin of p736. There is a mispagination: 668-969-670.

London, 1687. No binding. Fine. 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.

ALENCE, Joachim d'
chez Henry Wetstein, Amsterdam, 1687. First edition of this beautifully illustrated treatise on the magnet and its uses, dealing with the invention of the compass, magnetic mountains in America, declination and the orientation of the compass-needle in a magnetic field. The plates are etchings by Adriaan Schoonebeek (1658-1705), the pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe and a prolific book-illustrator. They recall Sébastien Le Clerc’s Pratique de la geometrie (Paris, 1669), where geometrical diagrams float above fanciful landscapes. In D’Alencé’s plates, however, though most of the landscapes and rustic scenes seem unrelated to the scientific content, one or two provide a commentary. For example, fig. 18, illustrated by Hofer, shows a violent explosion with bodies flying in all directions, which Hofer suggests illustrates the magnet’s potential. The finely engraved frontispiece is described by Park Benjamin, in his IntellectualRise in Electricity (London, 1895), as follows. "The lodestone, disposed in a bowl after the mode suggested by Neckam and Peregrinus, and marked with a longitudinal directing line, appears floating in front of the vessel, which the mariner, holding a rudder in one hand and a compass in the other, is about to board. The goddess, who appears to be advising him, points to the Great Bear, represented by the actual animal in the heavens, with the Pole Star situated at its tail, and also to a compass and a dipping needle, while in her left hand she has a sounding line. The idea evidently intended is that the divinity is advising the sailor to avail himself of all these … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rarissime extrait de la première édition occidentale de Confucius, parue en 1686. Il fut publié par les Jésuites à l'intention des missionnaires pour éclaircir le sens du terme chinois Shang-ti ("Dieu Suprême"). "This book is an excerpt from the 'Confucius Sinarum philosophus'. At the time when the controversy over the Chinese Rites started, there was discussion about the term Shang-ti, about which the missioners held different opinions among themselves. The Jesuits therefore made studies based on the writings of Confucius and from the ancient Chinese classics, on the term Shang-ti and then published what they thought was the correct interpretation" (Chang). Cet opuscule est si rare que nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'une poignée d'exemplaires dans les collections publiques à travers le monde (4 en Italie, 1 en France à la B.N.F. et aucun dans les bibliothèques américaines).

Goudae, Justum ab Hoeve [Gouda, Justus van der Hoeve], 1687. In-4, plein vélin rigide de l'époque, dos titré à la plume, (16), 364, (14) p. Édition princeps de la célèbre autobiographie testamentaire d'Uriel da Costa ('Exemplar humanae vitae'), composée à la veille de son suicide en 1640 et publiée "presque par hasard" (Daniel Lacerda) quarante-sept années après sa mort. Elle est insérée entre les pages 341 et 354 d'un recueil qu'un ministre calviniste arminien, Philip Van Limborch professeur à Amsterdam (1633-1712), consacre à la défense de la "vérité de la religion chrétienne", en discussion avec un Juif érudit, Isaac Orobio de Castro (c.1617-1687), lui-même réfugié du Portugal à Amsterdam. Éditée d'après un manuscrit et peut-être révisée, "Une vie humaine" est suivie de sa réfutation par Limborch. Né au sein d'une famille portugaise marrane, Uriel Da Costa (1585-1640) s'installa à Amsterdam en 1617 et revint au judaïsme, mais il entra bientôt en conflit avec la synagogue. Soumis à une humiliante pénitence publique, il se suicida. Ce document demeurait l'unique seule source d'informations sur Uriel da Costa jusqu'à la découverture récente (1990), à la bibliothèque d'Amsterdam, d'un exemplaire unique d'un autre de ses textes que l'on croyait perdu ("Exame das tradições fariseas") et qui le qui place aux côtés de Spinoza, dix années avant la condamnation de celui-ci, parmi les victimes du durcissement doctrinaire des autorités juives d'Amsterdam.

Seconde édition de la relation de cette ambassade de l'abbé de Choisy au royaume de Siam. Le but réel de cette ambassade dépêchée par Louis XIV était de tenter de convaincre le Roi Naraï de se convertir au christianisme. Malgré l'échange de nombreux cadeaux et de propos flatteurs, ce fut un échec. Rédigée sous forme de journal la relation est fort plaisante. Curieux de tout, l'abbé évoque les curieuses cérémonies, les gigantesques processions aquatiques rythmées d'une musique bizarre, les visites de pagodes peuplées d'idoles dorées, les chasses à l'éléphant et feux d'artifice. Il consigne une multitude d'observations sur les coutumes des habitants. Il y est aussi question de l'expédition manquée vers l'Australie et les côtes de Java. Rappelons enfin que l'excentrique abbé de Choisy avait un penchant forcené pour le travestissement. ¶ Cordier Bibl. Sinica, 941 - Chadenat n°2582 " Relation très curieuse, devenue rare".

Come studioso fu un propugnatore del metodo galileiano che applicò a molti dei suoi studi scientifici.

A nice, tall copy of this important work. A SCARCE, HANDSOME AND IMPORTANT EDITION. This was the last 'black letter' edition of Chaucer to be published. Thomas Speght included in this edition "The Court of Love," added to the Chaucer canon by Stow in 1561, as well as four new pieces: "The Flower and the Leaf;" "Chaucer's Dream;" "Jacke Upland" (spuriously attributed to Chaucer); and "Chaucer's A B C." The text of the Tales follows that of the 1602 edition, but with the addition of the then recently rediscovered endings of the Cook's and the Squire's tales. There is also a twenty-four page Glossary, "The Old and Obscure Words Explained", at the end of the volume. This copy with fine provenance, with the engraved bookplate of Oliver Huckel, published author and authority on Richard Wagner.

G. Cosimo BONOMO Giacinto Cestoni
Matini, 1687. In-4°; cm 230x180; pp. (2), 16, 1 tavola incisa su rame da Francesco Nacci, in cui sono raffigurate 15 figure di insetti. Ottima copia. Legatura in carta colorata. La redazione di Bonomo, rivista a emendata da Redi, patrocinatore dell'autore, venne data alle stampe dallo stesso Redi sotto forma di lettera indirizzata a se stesso. IL PRIMO ESEMPIO DI MEDICINA SCIENTIFICA CHE PROVA L'ESISTENZA DI UN FENOMENO ATTRAVERSO LA SPERIMENTAZIONE IN LABORATORIO Edizione originale rara di questo opuscolo di grande importanza storico-scientifica contenente la prima descrizione dell'acaro riconosciuto come agente eziologico, e non più mera conseguenza, della scabbia (acarus scabei). Le osservazioni condotte da Bonomo assieme a Giacinto Cestoni (1637-1718) portarono a scoprire la prima prova dell'esistenza di un un organismo di dimensione microscopica e per la prima volta nella storia della medicina a individuare definitivamente una specifica causa per una malattia e la conseguente terapia clinica. Sulla scorta di Redi, si supera in questo scritto la teoria della generazione spontanea. Malgrado l'evidente, per noi oggi, importanza di questo studio scientifico, l'opera venne praticamente dimenticata fino alla ripresa delle ricerche in questo campo da parte di Renucci nel 1935. "A dimostrare la verità della natura del male, il Cestoni e il Bonomo condussero studi accuratissimi e prolungati, i quali si riassunsero nella celebre lettera scritta al Redi, in cui dettero conto delle loro osservazioni...non solo essi riuscitrono a mettere in evidenza l'intima correlazione tra la rog … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
