Juli 1644 als Johann Ulrich Megerle in Kreenheinstetten bei Meßkirch; † 1. Dezember 1709 in Wien) war ein katholischer Geistlicher, Prediger und Schriftsteller. Er gilt mit rund 600 Einzelschriften als bedeutendster deutscher katholischer Prediger und Poet der Barockzeit mit ungewöhnlicher Sprachkraft und Sprachfantasie. (Quelle: Wiki). - Hier Ansporn zur Wallfahrt nach Abrahams ehemaligem Wirkungsort Maria Stern in Bayern (Das ehemalige Kloster der Augustiner-Barfüßer in Taxa (Odelzhausen) in Bayern in der Diözese München und Freising), wo ein wundersames Hühnerei mit Stern und Frauenantlitz aufgetaucht war. - 1606 soll der Odelzhauser Hofmarksherr von Hundt in Seenot ein Gelübde abgelegt haben, dass er im Falle einer Rettung eine Kapelle zu Ehren der Muttergottes errichten wollte. Von Hundt wurde errettet, doch das Gelübde vergaß er. 10 Jahre danach legte eine Henne auf seinem Gutshof am Ostermontag ein \"Stern-Ei\", auf dem ein Marienbild im Strahlenkranz zu sehen war. So wurde er an sein Versprechen erinnert und begann mit dem Bau einer Kapelle. Die \"Hundtsche Henne\" habe das Hühnerei auf einen nagelneuen Ziegelstein gelegt. Für die anwachsenden Pilgerströme wurde die Kapelle 1654 durch eine Wallfahrtskirche ersetzt und dem Orden der Augustinerbarfüßer übergeben, der 1660 das Kloster errichtete. Im Wappen von Odelzhausen ist der goldene, mit einem Ei belegte Stern abgebildet und verweist auf das seit dem 17. Jahrhundert in Taxa bestehende Kloster Maria Stern. (Quelle: Wiki).

        Nuova Guinea. Het Niew Hollandt. [Map of Northern Australia, Borneo, Indonesia and New Guinea].

      (circa1697].. Black and white map, ornate initial letter and double columns of text in Italian below and on the reverse. Sheet size 49.2 x 35cm, map size 24.5 x 27.4/30cm. The map was first published in 1688 as a gore sheet, a map with curved edges, which together with other similarly shaped sheets, designed to be pasted together around a base to form a globe. It is probable that this sheet is from Cornonelli's "Isolario descrittione geographico-historica, sacro-profano, antico-moderna, politica, naturale e poetica..." which was published in Venice in 1696-1697 Very good copy. Tooley 352. Coronelli is particularly famous for his construction of terrestrial and celestial globes. His most famous globes were a large pair he made for Louis XIV. Coronelli’s talents were many. Born the son of a tailor in 1650, by the time of his death in 1718, he was a highly regarded theologian, mathematician and cartographer as well as having risen through the Franciscan order to become General of the Order. Over his career he produced over 500 maps and globes and founded Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti the first geographical society. This gore sheet shows Northern Australia (from the Kimberley to the coast beyond Arnhem Land) with delightful depictions of an elephant, deer and other unlikely images of the land and its inhabitants. An important map of northern Australia, this map also offers a very interesting depiction of the section of Southeast Asia from Borneo's east coast to the western part of New Guinea, together with the islands of south-east Indonesia. .

        Doron medicum: or, A supplement to the new London dispensatory : In three books. Containing a supplement I. To the materia medica. II. To the internal compound medicaments. III. To the external compound medicaments

      London : Printed for, and sold by T. Dawks, T. Basset, R. Chiswell, M. Wotton, and G. Conyers, 1688-01-01. Hardcover. Good. Full leather binding. Nice English polished calf. 2nd ed. Front hinge has a small crack. Collated: [14], 776, [56] pages. Early signature of William Perry and Sam White. Pages are generally clean and unmarked. Printed in two columns. William Salmon was a self described "Professor of Physick(s)". Salmon combined medicine with alchemy and has been politely referred to as a medical empiric, and less politely as a charlatan and quack. Needless to say, Salmon was a highly successful author of medical texts, with many of his works printed in multiple editions. (You must appreciate his entry for Elixer of Virginia Snake root (Exilir Radicis Serpentariae), p. 503. It appears many of the medicines may have been lifted from a Hogwort's potions textbook or the stores of St Mungo's Hospital. i.e. Pulvis Antipestilentialis, a powder against the plague, p. 638. Hermione Granger, eat your heart out!) "Salmon was one of the earliest and most successful writers on popular science and medicine. He had little or no scientific or medical background but nevertheless became very successful and had an impressive career as a self-styled physician. His personal library contained several thousand items, and he wrote widely on a variety of subjects. His remedies enjoyed great popularity and included "Cordial Drops," "Balsam," "Elixir of Life," and "Family Pills," all of which acquired a great reputation." - Heirs of Hippocrates 654.

        A DISQUISITION ABOUT THE FINAL CAUSES OF NATURAL THINGS

      London: Printed by H. C. for John Taylor, 1688. FIRST EDITION, issue with cancel title y. One of the last works published in Boyle's lifetime, this rare and significant title by one of the most creative and prolific scientists of the 17th century provides a good example of both the author's breadth of intellectual inquiry and his deeply held interest in theology and philosophy. The youngest of the 14 children of the earl of Cork, Boyle (1627-91) was one of the founders of the Royal Society and a most active member throughout his life. He published many significant books and treatises, did much original work in chemistry, helped to develop a celebrated vacuum pump, and propounded "Boyle's Law," which formulated the important relationship between the pressure and volume of gases. Despite having suffered a major stroke in 1670, Boyle continued to experiment and write intensively through to the end of his life. His later writings, particularly those produced in the 1680s and including the present work, are often characterized in two ways: they may include forays into the world of medicine, and they also reflect a profound piety and respect for the divine. The present book is of considerable interest as a medical work. At the same time, the main essay presents the author's thoughts on the relationship between theology and the work of natural philosophers, and is often regarded as Boyle's endorsement of teleological inference (today more commonly referred to as "intelligent design"). In Fulton's words, on the medical side, "the volume is replete with allusions indicating [Boyle's] powers of observation as a naturalist and there are many references to physiology; perhaps the most interesting is the record of a conversation with William Harvey on how he discovered the circulation of the blood . . . . Appended to the 'Disquisition' is a brief tract on disturbances of vision; Boyle describes cataract, and was aware of the location of the opacity. A variety of case histories are recorded, drawn from his own experience, and the tract appears to be one of the first in which this method of teaching was employed in an ophthalmological treatise." In all, there are 14 ophthalmological case histories given, including exophthalmic ophthalmoplegia and other degenerative and trauma-related conditions.. 180 x 110 mm. (7 x 4 1/4"). [xvi], 96, 81-112, 129-274, [6] pp. (with numerous pagination errors, but complete). FIRST EDITION, issue with cancel title. Contemporary sprinkled calf, rolled panels with a floral tool in each corner, neatly rebacked, raised bands with morocco spine label and unobtrusive paper library label near the foot. Fulton 186A; Heirs of Hippocrates 367; Wellcome II, 224; Wing B-3946. A few small dings to the boards, extremities a little rubbed, one clean two-inch tear in the middle of one leaf (due to paper flaw) affecting a couple of letters, two smaller marginal tears (one affecting three lines of text), otherwise a really excellent copy, clean and fresh in a sturdy binding.

There is a small hole in top margin of the title leaf to the second part. Contents are a bit toned in margins and partly a little spotted. A fine copy. Praetorius (c. 1635-1707), born in Memel, Lutheran theologician and historian, converted to Catholicism in 1684 and was in 1685 appointed historiographer to the king of Poland, to whom the work is dedicated. In this historical and ethnographical work, which was much critizised by contemporary historians, Praetorius attempts to prove that the Slavic peoples are of Gothic origin, thus extending the geographical claims of the Polish crown to include Prussia. ''[Praetorius] constructed a suitable Gothic-Slavic identity for Prussia on the basis of the similarities between the Gothic, old Prussian and Slavonic languages. His Sarmatian Goths included the Bohemians, the Mecklenburgers, Cashubians, Prussians and the Pomeranians. For his work he was rewarded in Poland with the title Historicus Serenissimae Majestatis Regiae.'' (Karen Friedrich: The Other Prussia. Royal Prussia, Poland and Liberty, 1569-1772, pp. 91-92).

Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho Teixeira de Andrada Barbosa (1823â??1894), 3º Conde de Linhares (modern title). The library of the Condes de Linhares, consisting of over 14,000 volumes, was one of the most important ever formed in Portugal. The title, extinguished in the seventeenth century, was revived in the Sousa Coutinho family, one of the most cultured and enlightened of the old Portuguese nobility. The first Conde de Linhares in this line (descendents but not the representatives of the original line), was D Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho (Chaves, 1745â??Rio de Janeiro, 1812). He was created Conde de Linhares in 1808. His grandson, the third Conde de Linhares in the Sousa Coutinho line, D. Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho (Paris, 1823â??Sintra, 1894), married a daughter of the first Duques de Loulé, who through her mother was a grandaughter of D. João VI and D. Carlota Joaquina. Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846â??1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / fatherâ??inâ??law, and acquired a great fortune importing exotic lumber. He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José da Silva Mendes and Jorge César de Figanière (1889), the Condes de Linhares (1895), and José Maria Nepomuceno (1887). *** Kayserling (rev.

Romae: Joannis Jacobi Komarek, 1688. 4to. 39 pp. Giovanni Ciampini (1633–98) studied law and was subsequently appointed "Magister" at the Apostolic Chancery, thus providing him with a secure job (i.e., sinecure) and allowing him to devote himself to scholarship, as for example, here in his studies of papal biographies and the letters from Pius II to Charles II of France.

        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.

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? .

        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.

      London: printed for Dorman Newman, at the King?'s-Arms in the Poultry , 1688. First edition, second issue. Hardcover. Very Good. 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Wing B5608. First edition, second issue, first issue of the same year was titled "The Advocteship of Jesus Christ".

Contemporary sheep, rebacked with 5 raised bands on spine and gilt titles. Condition is Very Good; Very light wear to covers, professionally rebacked, previous owner's names (Catherine and John Leakey) and Leakey and Kiddell birth and marriage records (1771-1794) on front and rear endpapers, poetry signed H.G.K. on last page of contents and name Henry Grove Kiddell (1792-1833) on first page of text, pages are very lightly toned with no foxing or staining, binding is tight, first leaf is a blank endpaper with family notes from the 1700s, then there are 2 short stubs where endpapers or pages have been removed, then the frontis and title pages both of which are mounted on short white stubs. the frontis is mounted on a blank which may or may not be original, I can see by holding it up to the light that the frontis has text printed on verso, and it appears to be ads for books by John Marshall at the Bible, London. 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

        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.
