        Historia de Yucathan.

      Madrid: Juan Garcia Infanzon Folio (29 cm; 11.5"). [1 of 15] ff., 760 pp., [16] ff.. 1688 In this account of the conquest and Spanish settlement of the Yucatan, López de Cogolludo, a Franciscan missionary and administrator originally from Alcalá de Henares, presents a sought-after account. He had access to a manuscript version of Bishop Landa's work and consulted such important printed sources as Torquemada. => He also presents his personal eye-witness accounts of events during his 30 years among the Maya (1634–65). Robert Patch says in the Encyclopedia of Latin American History & Culture (III, 458) that López de Cogolludo wrote this history in the 1650s and that it is "a major source not only for the history of Yucatán but also for the study of Maya culture." Provenance: Small booklabel: "Marchio Regaliae D.D. 1741." John Carter Brown (1797–1874) purchased this from Henry Stevens in 1845/1846. On his death to his son John Nicholas Brown (1861–1900). On his death deeded to the John Carter Brown Library. Deaccessioned 2008. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties, front joint (inside) starting to open. Scattered foxing, including on title-page; short tear, repaired, in title; some staining in early margins and into text; without the preliminaries or the added engraved title. Doodling in many margins; ink stains from a careless quill user on several pages. John Carter Brown's stamped signature on p. 1. A less than perfect copy that yet does not "feel" maimed; a copy with a distinguished provenance to match the distinction of the work.

        Paradise lost A poem in twelve books

      London: Pr. by Miles Flesher for Jacob Tonson Folio (38.3 cm, 15"). [4], 343, [7] pp.; 12 plts. (lacking frontis.).. 1688 The fourth edition, adorn'd with sculptures" — that is to say,the => first illustrated appearance of Paradise Lost, as well as what Hodnett calls "the earliest serious effort to illustrate an important work of English poetry" — and the first folio edition to boot — Pforzheimer noting that this is additionally the first publication of => Dryden's lines on Milton. The => 12 dramatic copper-engraved plates, tipped in, were mostly done by Michael Burghers (or Burgess, as given here) after Sir John Baptist Medina (and apparently by at least one other, unidentified artist), with at least one done by Peter Paul Bouche after Bernard Lens. Most plates are interesting as splendidly "typical" of the period, but one, in particular, is => almost stunningly modern in spirit. Opposite the start of the first book, this shows Lucifer darkly arule in Pandemonia, and it has been widely influential indeed, there having been for example an illustration "after" it as early as 1705 in Paraguay! This is one of three variant imprints of this edition, with the publication information varying based on which publisher was selling the subscription; the grape cluster watermark is visible, and the subscribers list is present at the back of the volume. The present example is definitely a "tall" copy, though Pforzheimer wonders about this observation, saying that "copies are sometimes listed as Large Paper but from the fact that the List of Subscribers makes no such distinction this is evidently a cataloguer's fiction. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked with mottled calf with gilt-stamped leather title and subject labels, raised bands ruled in gilt; original leather acid-pitted with joints and extremities rubbed, page edges attractively speckled in red and brown. Frontispiece (author portrait) lacking; title-page with edges darkened from binding and with small hole touching frame lines but not text. Pages slightly cockled, one leaf with chip to upper margin; two plates (at p. 61 & p. 149) each with short tear from lower edge, not extending into image; one plate with tear from outer edge extending about halfway into image, cleanly repaired; one plate with light waterstaining to outer margin just barely touching outer edge of image. Occasional faint spots and smudges, scattered light foxing almost entirely confined to margins (including inner), pages mostly clean. The faults that must be noted have substantially reduced the price here; they have NOT, actually, much reduced the usefulness and pure delight of either the production or the copy.

Sammlung von 34 Abhandlungen, die der Leipziger Jurist Andreas Mylius in 2 Bänden veröffentlichte. Die 23 Abhandlungen im ersten Band überwiegend Exegesen zum Corpus iuris civilis, die 11 Abhandlungen im zweiten Band zum Kriminalrecht und öffentlichen Recht. - Tabor (1604-1674) studierte während der Wirren des 30jährigen Krieges in Leipzig, Jena, Straßburg und Genf. Die Promotion erfolgte in Straßburg im Jahre 1631, wo er auch eine Professur erhielt. \"T. erfreute sich zunehmenden Beifalls und Ansehens, wofür unter anderem auch die Thatsache spricht, daß er während seines Straßburger Aufenthalts aus den verschiedensten Theilen des Reichs über zwanzig Anerbieten zur Uebernahme der mannichfachsten Dienste erhielt, denen er jedoch keine Folge gab, bis ihn Herzog Gustav Adolf von Mecklenburg 1666 zum Geheimen Rath und Kanzleidirector in Güstrow ernannte...\" (ADB, 37, S. 337-339). Zudem wurde er Kanzler der Akademie in Gießen und Hofrat in Hessen-Darmstadt. In Mecklenburg-Güstrow war er an einer Konfessionalisierungs-Kampagne beteiligt, die auch die Verfolgung von Volksmagie und Hexerei zum Ziel hatte. Er beschäftigte sich in seiner Kriminalistik besonders mit der rechtlichen Würdigung der Hexenprozesse, was ihn für die heutige Hexenforschung zu einer wichtigen Quelle macht. Insgesamt sah sich Tabor der römisch-rechtlichen Tradition verpflichtet, ließ sich in einige Fehden ein, etwa mit Grotius, Conring und Salmasius. Seine Gelehrsamkeit wurde aber nicht ernsthaft bestritten, Brunnemann nannte ihn den \"lumen saeculi\", andere sahen in ihm den \"Papinianum Jureconsultorum\". Versand D: 2,00 EUR

With reflections on the Life of St Xavier. Don Sebastian King of Portugal. Also The Fable of the Bat and the Birds. Liscenced January 8, 1689. Printed in London for Thomas Bennet, 1690. Published anonymously by Brown it was a satire on John Dryden. In 1688 he published the first of the satires which brought him notice: Reason of Mr Bayes Changing his Religion, a fierce though entertaining and witty anti-Dryden pamphlet. He returned to attack Dryden, under the pseudonym Dudley Tomkinson, in subsequently published parts to this work, and on many other occasions. His satire was typically directed at a handful of targets, whom he attacked repeatedly, often in epigrams. After Dryden: Traitor to God, and rebel to the pen, Priest-ridden poet, perjur'd son of Ben (?To Mr Dryden on his Conversion?) the most frequent was Sir Richard Blackmore: Thine is the only muse in British ground Whose satire tickles and whose praises wound. (?To Sir R?"d B?"e?) He took great delight in regularly baiting Blackmore, author of the epic Prince Arthur, with squibs such as ?On Seeing a Man Light a Pipe of Tobacco in a Coffee-House with a Leaf of King Arthur?. The style adopted by satirists of omitting the vowels from the names of objects of satires ?when they would be more satirical than usual and fall unmercifully upon the consonants? is attributed by Addison, in his essay entitled ?Mystery and innuendo?, to Brown ?of facetious memory? .

(druk): ca. 41 x 50 cm.Frederick de Wit (1630 - 1706), een van de beste graveurs uit de tweede helft van de 17de eeuw, was werkzaam in de Kalverstraat te Amsterdam als graveur en kaartenhandelaar.Door zijn huwelijk met Maria van der Waag in 1661 verwierf hij het burgerschap van de stad. Drie jaar later werd hij tot het St.- Lucasgilde toegelaten. Alhoewel hij als katholiek zeker niet bevoordeeld was, prijkte zijn naam op de stedelijke lijst van "goede mannen"' van 1694 tot 1704.De Wit heeft zich voor deze plattegrond laten inspireren door de kaart die Blaeu in 1649 in zijn stedenboek publiceerde. Hij heeft er wel zorg voor gedragen dat de uitbreiding van de vestingwerken die sedertdien in de strijd met de Fransen aan alle zijden van de stad waren uitgevoerd, op zijn nieuwe kaart zijn aangeduid.Prijs: € 1.650,- (BTW margeregeling).

        A Treatise on Japaning and Varnishing, Being a Compleat Discovery of those Arts. With the best way of making all sorts of varnish for Japan, Wood, Prints, Plate, or Pictures..

      Oxford: for the author, 1688. Preliminaries and some leaves a moderately thumbed, a few expert marginal repairs; yet a very good copy in early binding, hinges strengthened.. Folio, with 24 woodcut plates, early eighteenth-century full calf with raised bands. Rare and desirable: the earliest book in English on the subject of European lacquer, and the first book of chinoiserie patterns to be published in England. A Treatise on Japaning and Varnishing is both an instructive text and pattern book for the use of craftsmen who strove to imitate Far Eastern lacquer work, then becoming increasingly scarce due to trade restrictions with Japan. H. D. Molesworth, editor of the modern reprint, described this original edition as 'a work of art in its own right - as readily accepted for its literary content as for its technical information'. The 24 plates in this book are arresting early examples of chinoiserie, reflecting the ambition of seventeenth-century European craftsmen to imitate Chinese and Japanese lacquerware. Throughout the ensuing century English and Continental lacquer came to rely less on copying from pattern books (such as this example) and transformed into a synthetic tradition combining European and Oriental motifs into novel designs. It was the stated intention of the authors that the plates in this volume be detached and used for transferring patterns directly; unsurprisingly complete copies of this book are scarce and difficult to acquire and it typically is encountered worn, stained and incomplete.Aside from providing a rich and original visual repertoire, this book is an important primary source for our historical understanding of the craft as it provides copious notes on spirits, gums, metallic powders, ground mineral colours, resin, shellac and so forth. Prices, availability and quality assessment of the various raw materials are provided, along with a wide range of varnish recipes. For example, the authors hold a dim view of English metallic dusts, and strongly urge the use of Continental products to achieve the desired eye-catching effects. There is also a pleasing overlap between the theory and patterns provided, for example chapter 17 specifically relates a method for colouring plate number 23 that has been included as a challenge for the ambitious artisan 'to shew what Art and Contrivance can effect... so that if we overcome the most difficult, all meaner undertakings must by consequence yield obedience and submission'.Finally, it was the intention of the authors to raise the status of English lacquer to that of a fine art, and expose the hack work that gave the medium a bad name. They hoped this book 'will assist 'em to distinguish between good Work and Rubbish, between an ignorant Knave and an Artist, and put a stop to all the cheats and cozenage [deception] of those whissling, impotent fellows who pretend to teach young Ladies that Art, in which they themselves have need to be instructed...'The book was issued with three variant title-pages, and at least five imprints. Wing notes four imprints for 1688 with various addresses for Stalker (of which this copy is an example of the third denoted 'C') and another imprint dated the following year 1689.

So it is probably early 18th c. . So it is clearly not the original frontis - this one is a woodcut, the Floger copy has an engraved frontis. Bunyan RGR

        Paradise lost. A poem in twelve books.

      London: Pr. by Miles Flesher for Jacob Tonson Folio (38.3 cm, 15"). [4], 343, [7] pp.; 12 plts. (lacking frontis.).. 1688 The fourth edition, adorn'd with sculptures" — that is to say,the => first illustrated appearance of Paradise Lost, as well as what Hodnett calls "the earliest serious effort to illustrate an important work of English poetry" — and the first folio edition to boot — Pforzheimer noting that this is additionally the first publication of => Dryden's lines on Milton. The => 12 dramatic copper-engraved plates, tipped in, were mostly done by Michael Burghers (or Burgess, as given here) after Sir John Baptist Medina (and apparently by at least one other, unidentified artist), with at least one done by Peter Paul Bouche after Bernard Lens. Most plates are interesting as splendidly "typical" of the period, but one, in particular, is => almost stunningly modern in spirit. Opposite the start of the first book, this shows Lucifer darkly arule in Pandemonia, and it has been widely influential indeed, there having been for example an illustration "after" it as early as 1705 in Paraguay! This is one of three variant imprints of this edition, with the publication information varying based on which publisher was selling the subscription; the grape cluster watermark is visible, and the subscribers list is present at the back of the volume. The present example is definitely a "tall" copy, though Pforzheimer wonders about this observation, saying that "copies are sometimes listed as Large Paper but from the fact that the List of Subscribers makes no such distinction this is evidently a cataloguer's fiction. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked with mottled calf with gilt-stamped leather title and subject labels, raised bands ruled in gilt; original leather acid-pitted with joints and extremities rubbed, page edges attractively speckled in red and brown. Frontispiece (author portrait) lacking; title-page with edges darkened from binding and with small hole touching frame lines but not text. Pages slightly cockled, one leaf with chip to upper margin; two plates (at p. 61 & p. 149) each with short tear from lower edge, not extending into image; one plate with tear from outer edge extending about halfway into image, cleanly repaired; one plate with light waterstaining to outer margin just barely touching outer edge of image. Occasional faint spots and smudges, scattered light foxing almost entirely confined to margins (including inner), pages mostly clean. The faults that must be noted have substantially reduced the price here; they have NOT, actually, much reduced the usefulness and pure delight of either the production or the copy.

        A Mapp of Ye Improved Part of Pensilvania in America Divided into Countyes Townshipps and Lotts

      [London]: "Surveyed by Tho: Holme Sold by P. Lea at ye Atlas and Hercules in Cheapside", 1688. Copper engraving, hand-coloured in outline. Inset plan of The City of Philadelphia two miles in Length and one in Breadth at upper center. Tables of References to the Settlements of the Inhabitants of Chester and Bucks counties at upper left and right. Dedication to "William Penn Esq. Proprietor and Governor of Pennsylvania by J. Harris" at upper right. 112 numbered and lettered references in Chester County, 29 numbered references in Bucks County, 36 numbered and lettered references in Philadelphia County, and hundreds of land holders identified on the map itself. Sheet size: 20½ x 24 inches. Very rare: the first issue of Holme's map of Pennsylvania -- the first map of Pennsylvania. This copy a superb example with contemporary outline colour and wide margins. Thomas Holme was appointed Surveyor General of Pennsylvania by William Penn in April 1682, the year after the colony was chartered. It was his responsibility to supervise the surveying of all tracts of land that had been sold. In May 1687, at Penn's request, he forwarded a manuscript map in London that gave a detailed portrait of the extent of settlement at that date. "This was published first as a very large and later as a smaller engraving. In both, the grid plan of the city was carefully inserted in recognition of the fact that Philadelphia was the focal point and that the city plan had strong sales value in all promotion of the province generally" (Snyder). The manuscript survey was published as a six-sheet wall map in late 1687, of which only a handful of copies have survived. The present version, finely engraved by John Harris, was published by Philip Lea shortly thereafter. Although reduced in size from the wall map, the engraver maintained the extraordinary detail. Virtually every first purchaser is identified, either on the map itself or via the numbered and lettered references. The present copy is the rare first state of the map, issued by P. Lea sometime between 1687 and 1699 (though likely circa 1688 as the map was an integral part of William Penn's promotion of his tract). On the later states, Lea's imprint has been erased from the plate and another imprint added at the lower left on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The map is the most detailed and complete for any English American colony of the seventeenth century. Penn intended the map for promotional purposes, and it shows the boundaries and names the owner of every settled tract in the colony. The plan of Philadelphia at upper center is taken from Holme's original survey map of 1682, from which the city was laid out. Holme's was the first map of Philadelphia, and in its printed form, the first obtainable for any English American city. "Without question the finest printed cartographic document relating to North America to be published to date" (Burden).

        Historia de Yucathan.

      Madrid: Juan Garcia Infanzon Folio (29 cm; 11.5"). [1 of 15] ff., 760 pp., [16] ff.. 1688 In this account of the conquest and Spanish settlement of the Yucatan, López de Cogolludo, a Franciscan missionary and administrator originally from Alcalá de Henares, presents a sought-after account. He had access to a manuscript version of Bishop Landa's work and consulted such important printed sources as Torquemada. => He also presents his personal eye-witness accounts of events during his 30 years among the Maya (1634–65). Robert Patch says in the Encyclopedia of Latin American History & Culture (III, 458) that López de Cogolludo wrote this history in the 1650s and that it is "a major source not only for the history of Yucatán but also for the study of Maya culture." Provenance: Small booklabel: "Marchio Regaliae D.D. 1741." John Carter Brown (1797–1874) purchased this from Henry Stevens in 1845/1846. On his death to his son John Nicholas Brown (1861–1900). On his death deeded to the John Carter Brown Library. Deaccessioned 2008. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties, front joint (inside) starting to open. Scattered foxing, including on title-page; short tear, repaired, in title; some staining in early margins and into text; without the preliminaries or the added engraved title. Doodling in many margins; ink stains from a careless quill user on several pages. John Carter Brown's stamped signature on p. 1. A less than perfect copy that yet does not "feel" maimed; a copy with a distinguished provenance to match the distinction of the work.

        The Reasons of Mr. Bays Changing His Religion. BOUND With The Late Converts Exposed: Or the reasons of Mr Bays's Changing his religion.

Considered in a dialogue between, Crites, Eugenius, and Mr. Bays, 1688. And The Late Convert exposed: or the reasons of Mr Bays's changing his religion. Considered in a Dialogue. Part the Second. With reflections on the Life of St Xavier. Don Sebastian King of Portugal. Also The Fable of the Bat and the Birds. Liscenced January 8, 1689. Printed in London for Thomas Bennet, 1690. Published anonymously by Brown it was a satire on John Dryden. In 1688 he published the first of the satires which brought him notice: Reason of Mr Bayes Changing his Religion, a fierce though entertaining and witty anti-Dryden pamphlet. He returned to attack Dryden, under the pseudonym Dudley Tomkinson, in subsequently published parts to this work, and on many other occasions. His satire was typically directed at a handful of targets, whom he attacked repeatedly, often in epigrams. After Dryden: Traitor to God, and rebel to the pen, Priest-ridden poet, perjur'd son of Ben (‘To Mr Dryden on his Conversion’) the most frequent was Sir Richard Blackmore: Thine is the only muse in British ground Whose satire tickles and whose praises wound. (‘To Sir R—d B—e’) He took great delight in regularly baiting Blackmore, author of the epic Prince Arthur, with squibs such as ‘On Seeing a Man Light a Pipe of Tobacco in a Coffee-House with a Leaf of King Arthur’. The style adopted by satirists of omitting the vowels from the names of objects of satires ‘when they would be more satirical than usual and fall unmercifully upon the consonants’ is attributed by Addison, in his essay entitled ‘Mystery and innuendo’, to Brown ‘of facetious memory’ .

        THE ROYAL COMMENTARIES OF PERU, IN TWO PARTS

      London, 1688. Folio. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked in vellum at an early date. Some scattered darkening and dust soiling, else a very nice copy, untrimmed. Garcilaso de la Vega's major work, the source from which all later writers on the subject have drawn. It consists of two parts, the first describing the origins, religion, laws, and many other details regarding the Incan empire and policies before the invasion by the Spanish. The second part describes the conquest by the Spanish. The engravings provide a vivid picture of the brutal life of the period in Peruvian life and of the conquest. This is the first English language edition, translated by Paul Rycaut, whose portrait appears as the frontispiece. Garcilaso de la Vega, "El Inca," a distinguished 16th- century mestizo Peruvian and a descendant of the Spanish poet of the same name, was born in Peru and spent his formative years there, living out his later life in Spain. Garcilaso's contemporary record of the early Spanish period in Peru is most valuable, as it is based on eyewitness testimony and personal observation.

        A MAPP OF YE IMPROVED PART OF PENSILVANIA IN AMERICA DIVIDED INTO COUNTYES TOWNSHIPPS AND LOTTS

      [London]: Hercules in Cheapside,, 1688. Copper engraving, handcolored in outline. Inset plan of "The City of Philadelphia two miles in Length and one in Breadth" at upper center. Tables of "References to the Settlements of the Inhabitants of Chester and Bucks counties" at upper center. Dedication to "William Penn Esq. Proprietor and Governor of Pennsylvania by J. Harris" at upper right. 112 numbered and lettered references in Chester County, 29 numbered references in Bucks County, 36 numbered and lettered references in Philadelphia County, and hundreds of land holders identified on the map itself. Very good. Very rare: the first issue of Holme's map of Pennsylvania - the first map of Pennsylvania. This copy a superb example with contemporary outline color and wide margins on all sides. Thomas Holme was appointed surveyor general of Pennsylvania by William Penn in April 1682, the year after the colony was chartered. It was his responsibility to supervise the surveying of all tracts of land that had been sold. In May 1687, at Penn's request, he forwarded a manuscript map in London that gave a detailed portrait of the extent of settlement at that date. "This was published first as a very large and later as a small engraving. In both, the grid plan of the city was carefully inserted in recognition of the fact that Philadelphia was the focal point and that the city plan had strong sales value in all promotion of the province generally" - Snyder. The manuscript survey was published as a six-sheet wall map in late 1687, of which only a handful of copies have survived. The present version, finely engraved by John Harris, was published by Philip Lea shortly thereafter. Although reduced in size from the wall map, the engraver maintained the extraordinary detail. Virtually every first purchaser is identified, either on the map itself or via the numbered and lettered references. The present copy is the rare first state of the map, issued by P. Lea sometime between 1687 and 1699 (though likely circa 1688 as the map was an integral part of William Penn's promotion of his tract). On the later states, Lea's imprint has been erased from the plate and another imprint added at the lower left on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The map is the most detailed and complete for any English American colony of the seventeenth century. Penn intended the map for promotional purposes, and it shows the boundaries and names the owner of every settled tract in the colony. The plan of Philadelphia at upper center is taken from Holme's original survey map of 1682, from which the city was laid out. Holme's was the first map of Philadelphia, and in its printed form, the first obtainable for any English American city.
