REDI, Francesco
1687. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Francesco Redi was a 17th-century Italian physician who recorded his most famous biology experiments in "Experiments on the Generation of Insects". This work, first published in 1668, disproved the vipers could consume wine, break glass, and that their venom was poisonous if ingested. His observations on snakes helped establish many of the accepted understandings of snakes, particularly venomous snakes. Redi played an important role in refuting 'spontaneous generation' - the theory that maggots arose from rotted meat. He was also the very first biologist to describe ectoparasites, ticks, parasite flies, and interesting experiments of chemotherapy. He discusses his observations on hippopotamuses and the capybara. This 1687 edition features six full-page engravings foliage, leaves, Annona tree fruit, and snake eggs. It is taken directly from the first edition published in Florence and includes Redi's famous 'Letters' in addition to his 'Experiments'. This collection of works was published before his most famous work 'Bacco in Toscana' a famous literary work on wine. [Attributes: First Edition]

CHAUCER, Geoffrey
1687. "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!

London: Printed for Nicholas Cox, 1687. Condition: Very Good binding. An extracted selection of leaves from one of two unauthorized first issues of Gerard Longbaine's Momus Triumphans: or, the Plagiaries of the English Stage. Text on the flyleaf states: "these are all the leaves from Langbaine's rare catalogue mentioning Shakespeare. 1688." With four pages of prefix, unpaginated, pp. 5-8, 19-26, 29-30, and the complete index. Langbaine's catalogue is organized by author, with title, genre, and size.

Marius, and Lucan's Pharsalia, book ad." Shakespeare, a notorious 'borrower' of plots and tropes, has a page entirely to himself, with notations for many of his titles as to where the plot originated. Title and publication information taken from a reference card laid in, and the ESTC. Half green leather over marbled paper boards. Wear to the edges of the spine and boards. Very Good. (ESTC R3459.

1687. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. A rare first edition of Jean Chardin's "Travels into Persia and the East Indies". This book is regarded as one of the finest works of early Western scholarship on Persia and the Near East. This incredible work includes beautiful folding plates, plates of maps, city views, and important Persian events. In this book Chardin discusses his journeys from Constantinople to the Black Sea, Persia, and throughout the Middle East (Kashan, Iraq; Armenia, Crimea, and Georgia). The end of his journey took him through the Cape of Good Hope, on his way home. Upon his return, he was considered quite a celebrity in London; though, according to Evelyn he was 'not inclined to talke wonders". He met with famous members of the Royal Society, all of whom took great interest in his voyage. He told them of his witnessing of Abbas II's coronation, and the jewels and fine ornaments he had seen. This French edition includes extracts from the Qur'an and Muslim religious songs describing Muhammed and Mecca. [Attributes: First Edition]

He published a number of defense treatises including 'Defense of New Christians and Missionaries in China, Japan and India'. This work was in response to his investment in controversies of Chinese rites and rituals and the Jesuit missionary practices of enculturation which was denounced by those opposed to the Society of Foreign Missions. This work was well known to be denounced and attacked by Jansenist Antoine Arnauld. [Attributes: First Edition]

Many of the plates were based on engravings from Coronelli's Memorie Istoriografische della Morea. All the Enderlin publications are related and made use of many of the same plates. There was one publication every year from 1685 to at least 1693(Collection Contominas 239). The work was probably inspired by the increased interest in Ottoman affairs which followed the unsuccessful siege of Vienna by the Turks in 1683, rather than through any pressing need to communicate first-hand information about Constantinople to actual travellers (Koç p.175).Atabey 402; Blackmer 1303(note); Weber 749.

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]

Upon his return, he was considered quite a celebrity in London; though, according to Evelyn he was ‘not inclined to talke wonders”.

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."

RALEIGH, SIR WALTER
London: Printed for T. Basset, 1687. Among the manifold writings of Sir Walter Raleigh, including poetry, travel narrative, and drama, this attempt at universal history, first printed in 1614, is of particular interest in that Raleigh wrote it while in prison. The book begins with the creation of the universe, and the first half is based largely on the narrative of the Bible. Raleigh then sketches Greek history from ancient sources and brings his chronicle down to the doings of the Roman Republic, ending in 130 B.C. Day writes that the work "contains some of the most majestic prose in English. The opening lines on the Deity superbly keynote the theme of how God judges the wicked, and the concluding apostrophe to Death is a brilliant piece of writing." There is considerable irony in the fact that the book was written for Prince Henry, who had ordered the execution of Raleigh's father. Said by Naunton to have been "an indefatigable reader" from childhood, Raleigh lived both an adventurous and educated life. Poet, courtier, explorer, buccaneer, and one-time favorite of Queen Elizabeth, he had an important intersection with American history as the person who attempted to found Roanoke Colony in Virginia in 1587. Raleigh came to a notorious and controversial end when troops under his command attacked and burned the Spanish outpost of San Tomàs after strict royal orders to avoid all further conflict with the Spaniards. Although he was not directly responsible for the attack, he was nevertheless executed as a result of it, becoming a martyred hero ever after to a public an … [Click Below for Full Description]

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!

The profoundly influential masterpiece - written during the Thirty Years' War, in the hope that rational human beings might be able to agree to legal limits on war's destruction - "made him famous throughout Europe... [t]he questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of land and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture... Grotius's principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the "droit naturel", the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law."

Copper engraving, originally dissected on 32 sections and mounted on linen (Very Good) 72 x 97 cm (28.3 x 38.2 inches). A rare large separately published map of Carinthia by Johann Baptist Zauchenberg, printed in Augsburg on the costs of the Carinthia government, served as a draft to later maps of Carinthia by Homann, Seutter and Le Rouge, among others. - This magnificent, separately published map of Carinthia in Austria, with parts of Slovenia in the south, was made by an Carinthian Jesuist Johann Baptist Zauchenberg and dedicated to his teacher Karl Adrian.The map shows the borders of Carinthia, with detailed geography and road connections. 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.

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.
