      Johann Hofmann, Nurenberg 1688 - 4to. [1] 200 [4] + 400 [8] pp. Bound in leather with gold lettering on spine. Raised bands on spine. Illustrated with 38 (complete in 39) copper - engraved plates and maps. Double-paged 21, (of which 2 were are hand-colored.) Frontispiece and 8 full page plates, (of which one has extra folds.) Seven double-page copper - engraved maps, (3 of which have extra folds) In addition there are 34 in page text engravings, (4 of which are crudely hand-colored.) This is a copy of the German translation by Jacob von Meursen, who engraved the copperplates, which were compiled and modified from earlier printed works. Text in double column. The many illustrations are truly gorgeous, depicting: landscapes, architecture, desert scenes, religious and historical events and much more, making this a famous and well known work. Olfert Dapper (1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician, writer and expert on Africa. He was born in Amsterdam around 1635. In May 1658, he enrolled at Utrecht University and two years later was signing himself "doctor medicinæ," although there is no evidence that he ever received any medical training. In 1663, he published a historical description of Amsterdam. In 1665 he published a Dutch translation of the works of Herodotus. With the increased interest in exploration and foreign cultures, a flourishing trade in travel books developed in Holland in the mid 17th Century. Following this trend, Dapper was just over thirty when he embarked on the geographic and ethnographic research that was to occupy him for the rest of his life. He threw himself into a vast undertaking, tackling first Africa (1668), then China (1670), Persia (1672) and the Middle East (1680). His books became well known in his own time, with translations rapidly appearing in English, French and German. In 1983 a museum devoted to him was opened in Paris, Musée Dapper. Dapper never went to the exotic destinations about which he wrote. Largely due to his utilization of the accounts of Jesuit missionaries and explorers, Dapper steered clear from making value judgments about the societies he described. He avoided ethnocentric connotations and became the first person to adopt an interdisciplinary approach, weaving together the separate threads of geography, economics, politics, medicine, social life and customs. Unlike some of his contemporaries, Dapper produced a genuine work for posterity, not just a compendium of exotic curiosities. Head and foot of spine missing, cracking to spine, front and rear boards detached but present. 1 full page plate missing. Browning, foxing and water staining throughout, but text and illustrations are mostly unaffected. Marginal pencil marks atop a number of the plates, not effecting illustrations. Some repairs with white binders tape on the verso of the double page fold out map of Terra Sancta, (The Holy Land) and to some of the double-page fold out plates. Exterior in poor, interior in overall fair condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rellatãose as grandezas, narrãose as entradas Referemse as festividades que se celebrarão na insigne Cidade e Corte de Lisboa, desde 11 de agosto athe 25 de Outubro de 1687. Cujas Descripções. Dedica ao Senhor Jeronimo Nunes da Costa .

      Brussels, n.pr., 18 August 1688. - Engraved title page with arms of the newly married couple, 2 putti holding banners, and two women labeled Galiope [@sic] and Talia (see below). Engraved title page, (4 ll., including errata on final verso), 328 pp. 4°, twentieth-century (second or third quarter) blind-tooled calf (slight wear), spine with raised bands in five compartments, two crimson leather lettering pieces in second and fourth compartments, gilt letter (title), edges sprinkled red from an earlier binding. A few light stains; tiny wormhole in last 5 quires, touching one letter per page. Overall in very good to fine condition. Old signatures on title page, in upper (scored) and lower ("De Jozé Montrº Nayo") margins. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This verse narrative describes the festivities - including illuminations, triumphal arches, bonfires and bullfights - celebrated in Lisbon upon the marriage of D. Pedro II (1648-1706) to Maria Sophia Isabella (1666-1699), daughter of Philipp Wilhelm of Neuburg, Count Palatine. In the prologue, the author notes that the royal nuptials can be better described by a poem than by a prose narrative: "Bem sey que as excelencias destes Regios Nupciais Elogios, mais erão Sugeito para as eloquencias de hum Poema, do que materia para as limitações de huma Rellação." (f. A3v). The 92 @ramos give lengthy poetic descriptions of Maria Sophia's arrival in Lisbon, a day of bullfights (pp. 159-252), a fireworks display (pp. 253-290), and a second day of bullfights (pp. 291-328). Each section of the poem is preceded by a few lines in italic explaining the upcoming "scene," often giving details of the actors, sets, costume, and gold and silver ornaments. For example: "No meyo deste Cerco, se levantava huma Belligera fortaleza com quatro soberbos Baluartes, & oito vistozas Guaritas, Coroandose com hum Eminente Castello; viãose em Contorno sobre as agoas, muitos Marinhos gigantes armados com lanças & Rodellas, donde violentos se ocultavão engenhosos fogos" (p. 260).The charming title page incorporates the combined arms of D. Pedro II and his wife, surmounted by a large crown. Out of the crown stretch a dragon and a large bird who hold wreaths over the women who flank the arms. On the left, "Galiope" @sic, for Calliope, muse of epic poetry) is crowned with a globe and cross that bears the name Maria, and holds a trumpet in her right hand. On the right is Talia (Thalia, muse of comedy), crowned with a globe bearing the name Pedro, and holding a stringed instrument. Above the arms and the muses, two putti hold three banners bearing part of the title. The end of the author's prologue explains the use of these two figures: "Na severidade de Reays, não perdem os Epithalamios condição de festivos; neste que te aprezento, adorno o seriozo com as galas do alegre; valhome do heroyco de CALIOPE, sem desprezar o agradavel de TALIA: com o @Clarim daquella, expecifico as grandezas; com o @Plectro desta, solemnizo os festejos" (f. A4r).D. Pedro II of Portugal (1648-1706) was the second surviving son of D. João IV. From 1668 he was regent for his elder, mentally deficient brother, D. Afonso VI, whom he exiled to the Azores and later Sintra, where Afonso died in 1683. Afonso's marriage to Maria Francisca of Savoy had meanwhile been annulled because it had never been consummated. Pedro married his former sister-in-law in 1668, and she bore him a daughter, Isabel Luísa Josefa de Portugal, who became heir to the throne. The combination of D. Isabel's poor physical health and the strict rules for succession to the Portuguese throne led to canceled engagements with royal offspring across Europe, earning her the nickname "a Sempre-Noiva," "the ever-engaged." When Maria Francisca died in 1683, D. Pedro aimed to secure the succession by marrying into a famously fecund and well-connected family. He dispatched Manuel da Silva Teles to Heidelberg to request the hand of Maria Sophia, daughter of the Count Palatinate, sister of Eleanor Madeleine, third wife of Leopold I [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho Teixeira de Andrada Barbosa (1823?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, 1745?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, 1823?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 (1846?1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / father?in?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 Men [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Greek letters, then:] Michaelis Pselli de operatione daemonum dialogus. Gilbertus Gaulminus Molinensis primus Graece edidit & notis illustravit. E museo Dan. Hasenmulleri, ling. Gr. in Academia Kiloniensi Professoris Ordinarii. ["On the Operation of Dæmons"].

      Sumptibus Joh. Sebastiani Richelii, Kiloni, [Kiel] 1688 - Hardcover, 12mo (13 x 7.5 cms). Contemporary full vellum, [12] + 166 pp. Text in Latin and Greek on opposite pages. Includes index of authors cited; with head- and tail-piece. Footnotes. First seven words of title in Greek letters: (transcribed: Michaelou tou Psellou Peri energeias daimonon dialogos). Michael Constantine Psellus (1018 – 1178 C.E) was a monk, philosopher, politician and historian, widely considered to be one of the great writers and thinkers of the Byzantine era. Psellus was born in Constantinople (modern Istanbul) and served as an advisor to a number of emperors, as well as becoming the head Professor at the newly founded University of Constantinople, where he played a key role in the reintroduction of the study of Greek thought, particularly that of Plato. He wrote on a wide variety of subjects. His "De Operatione Daemonum," is basically a discourse on the nature and classification of demons, presented in the form of a dialogue between two individuals, Timothy and "a Thracian." Byzantine magical and hermetic works are often cited as having been the stepping stone between Greek thought and the development of Western Hermeticism during the Renaissance. Psellus' "De Operatione Daemonum" was an important work that was reprinted a number of times (mostly in Greek and Latin) following its first publication (in French translation) in 1576. It was considered of such importance that it was anthologised into several collections of hermetic texts, along with the works of Iamblichus, Proclus and Hermes Trismegistus. The first English translation of "De Operatione Daemonum" was published in 1843, and the work has recently been reissued in a new edition as Volume V of the Golden Hoard Press "Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series." This 1688 edition is the second (the first was 1615) to be edited by Gilbert Gaulmin (1587–1667) a French author and counsellor of State, who was known as a translator and philologist, but is most widely remembered for his unorthodox approach to marriage. When (for reasons unknown), a curate refused to marry Gaulmin and his intended bride, Gaulmin declared in his presence that he took her as his wife, and the two thereafter lived as married. This caused such scandal that an investigation into marriages "out of church" was held, and they were made illegal, becoming known a marriages "a la Gaulmin." The 1688 edition is the first to contain a scholarly edition of the Greek text, which was prepared especially for it by Daniel Hasenmüller (1651–1691), a German philologist and classicist who was also Professor of Oriental languages at the University of Kiel. This copy from the library of G.R.S Mead, with his ownership stamp: "G. R. S. Mead, Theosophical Head Quarters, 19 Avenue Road, Regent's Park," on the front paste down. George Robert Stowe Mead (1863–1933) was one of the most significant figures in late nineteenth and early twentieth century British occultism. An industrious author, editor, and translator, who was for a time Mme. Blavatsky's private secretary and also became a joint-secretary of the Esoteric Section (E.S.) of the Theosophical Society and an active member of the "Inner Circle" of the T.S. He quit the T.S. following the first great Leadbeater scandal and went on to found The Quest Society. Initially with a strong interest in Eastern Religions, Mead became increasingly involved with the study of Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, and the Western Hermetic tradition. "De Operatione Daemonum" was obviously one of the source works that he used in those studies, which bore fruit in the form of some of his most famous books. The vellum binding is somewhat age darkened, but otherwise clean and solid, with just a couple of tiny nicks. Internally there is a little light toning, but the pages are otherwise fresh, supple, and unmarked. All early editions of the work are rare. This copy not only in scarce as such, but in lovely condition, and with an important provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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," [ca. 1688].. Sheet size: 20 1/2 x 24 inches. 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. DEGREES OF LATITUDE, Custis atlas, entry 71. BURDEN 669.

        Catalogus librorum Roberti Scott, bibliopolæ regii Londinensis. In quavis lingua & facultate insignium ex variis Europæ partibus advectorum, quorum auctio habenda est Londini, ad insigne ursi in vico (vulgo dicto) Ave-Mary-Lane, prope Ludgate-street, decimo tertio die Februarii, 1687/8. Per Benjaminum Walford, bibliopolam Londinensem

      [London]: distributed by Mr. William Nott, Mr. Holford, Mr Willis, Mr. Fox, Mr Lownds, Mr. Wilkinson, Mr. Rich. Chiswell, Mr Peter Parker, Mr. Turner, Mr. Benj. Shirly, Mr. Hayes and Mr. Adiel Mill, [1688]. 4to, [4], 144, 135-175, [1]pp., without the final blank leaf, browned, red half morocco, spine lettered in gilt. Seventeenth-century book auction catalogues are extremely rare and are seldom found in commerce. Robert Scott was a successful bookseller and publisher, specialising in importing scholarly works in Latin from the Continent. The sale in 1688 was organised by his former apprentice Benjamin Walford and was made up of a large part of his stock. Scott counted Samuel Pepys and Robert Hooke among his customers. Mr. Adiel Mill, mentioned in the imprint as a distributor, was, as well, the publisher, having just purchased the business from Robert Scott. Mills lost the business in 1690, thereby ruining Scott for being unable to pay his purchase debt. "The catalogue extends to no less than 176pp., comprising 7040 lots, which would represent some 25,000 volumes, an enormous quantity for a bookseller of that period to amass for the purpose of retailing. The contents are classified into Latin Theology, Ecclesiastical and Ritualistic Books of the Roman-Catholic Church, Juridical, Miscellaneous, Medical and Philosophical, Mathematical, French, Italian, and Spanish, English Theology and Miscellanies, Books of Prints, and Manuscripts."—Lawler.

        Het Niew Hollandt

      Venice: circa 1688-, 1699. Engraved gore sheet, 240 x 265 mm.; a few short tears at extremities, but in fine condition, framed. Coronelli gore sheet. A gore sheet, designed to be pasted onto a globe, and an important map of Australia: this single sheet by the great Venetian cartographer Coronelli shows the north western coast in some detail. This particular gore is famous for the fanciful depiction of inland Australia, and shows Arnhem Land complete with palm trees, reindeer and elephants. This detailed map was first engraved as a gore - or globe segment - for Coronelli's colossal terrestrial globe of 1688. Measuring over one metre in diameter, this was one of the largest printed globes ever produced; its engraving was of the highest order, and reflected the most up-to-date and accurate information available at the time. It particularly reflects the discoveries made during the first voyage of Abel Tasman in 1642. The gore offered here, with relevant text at the bottom and verso of the sheet, was probably from the set of twelve plates published in atlas format in the 1696-97 edition of Coronelli's Isolario and later in his Libro dei Globi.

Chronicon Paschale; Brunet I,1435 & 1859; Ebert 3221,21) (Details: Dark blue spine with a red letterpiece and gilt fillets; wide uncut margins, thick paper; engraved printer's device of the Typographia Regia on the title; 4 beautiful engraved headpieces, 2 large initials, 2 engravings in the text; Greek text and Latin translation juxtaposed) (Condition: Cover worn, esp. at extremities; corners bumped; paper on covers grazed at places; letterpiece on the back damaged; some gatherings slightly browning) (Note: The Chronicon Paschale was compiled between 631 and 641 by a clergyman in the time of the emperor Herakleitos. Because the compiler is very interested in establishing the date of Eastern, Du Cange called it the Chronicon Paschale. The chronology starts with Adam, and ends in 628, where the manuscript breaks off. From 602 onward the compiler was eyewitness of the important events of his days. The historical data and the use of documents, records and charters make this book one of the most important sources of Greek christian chronology. Brunet mentiones that this work was number 4 of the series Corpus historiae byzantinae scriptores. Ebert however says that this is number 21 of the series. C. du Fresne du Cange, 1610-1688, best known for his large glossary on Medieval Latin, 'Glossarium ad scriptores Mediae & Infimae Latinitatis', was one of the greatest lexicographers of France, and his work in this field still remains unsurpassed. His work on byzantine history is best illustrated by his Historia Byzantina of 1680, and his edition of Ville-Hardouin's History of the Latin conquest of Constantinople, of 1657) (Provenance: Ex libris en codicibus Episcopi Brugensis XIX, 1863) (Collation: *6 (*1 blank) 2*4, a4 e4 i4 o4 u4, 2a4 2e2, A - 4L4) (Photographs on request).

        Nouvelle relation de la Chine , contenant la description des particularitez les plus considerables de ce grand Empire... traduite du Portugais en François par le Sr. B

      Paris: Claude Barbin, 1688. Quarto, with a large engraved folding plan of Peking; some water-staining to a few lower margins, some leaves browned, but a good copy in contemporary French speckled calf (upper joint a little split but quite firm), spine gilt in compartments with raised bands. "The most comprehensive and perceptive general description of China" An especially important book on 17th-century China, which Lach and van Kley have described as 'perhaps the most comprehensive and perceptive general description of China published during the second half of the century'. This was the first of several editions, and formed the basis of an English version by John Ogilby. Gabriel de Magalhaes, 1609-1677, was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary to China. The book was translated by Claude Bernou from Magalhaes' manuscript (written in Portuguese) that was sent back to Europe in 1682. The fine large engraved plan of the city was put together by Bernou from sketches by Magalhaes. Of particular note is 'what was probably the first presentation of a fragment of Chinese text to a European audience. The fragment [p. 103] consisted of sixteen characters taken from the opening lines of the Ta hsüeh [Great Learning]… Magalhaes regarded these words of Confucius… to be eminently appropriate for explaining the task of the preacher of the Christian Gospel in China' (D.E. Mungello, Curious Land: Jesuit Accommodation and the Origins of Sinology, University of Hawaii, 1989). Mungello has written at length about Magalhaes' study of Chinese language and history, and concludes that 'whereas Ricci and Trigault had conveyed only a bare sketch of the Chinese language…', Magalhaes together with Semedo greatly advanced and influenced western understanding of the Chinese language, and particularly the early study of the Confucian texts. This copy in good original condition was once in the library of the French writer and explorer Jean-Baptiste Labat, with his manuscript ownership inscription on title and a few marginal annotations (pp. 260/61, 266, 382).

        Nouvelle relation de la Chine , contenant la description des particularitez les plus considerables de ce grand Empire? traduite du Portugais en François par le Sr. B.

      Claude Barbin, Paris 1688 - Quarto, with a large engraved folding plan of Peking; some water-staining to a few lower margins, some leaves browned, but a good copy in contemporary French speckled calf (upper joint a little split but quite firm), spine gilt in compartments with raised bands. "The most comprehensive and perceptive general description of China" An especially important book on 17th-century China, which Lach and van Kley have described as 'perhaps the most comprehensive and perceptive general description of China published during the second half of the century'. This was the first of several editions, and formed the basis of an English version by John Ogilby. Gabriel de Magalhaes, 1609-1677, was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary to China. The book was translated by Claude Bernou from Magalhaes' manuscript (written in Portuguese) that was sent back to Europe in 1682. The fine large engraved plan of the city was put together by Bernou from sketches by Magalhaes. Of particular note is 'what was probably the first presentation of a fragment of Chinese text to a European audience. The fragment [p. 103] consisted of sixteen characters taken from the opening lines of the Ta hsüeh [Great Learning]? Magalhaes regarded these words of Confucius? to be eminently appropriate for explaining the task of the preacher of the Christian Gospel in China' (D.E. Mungello, Curious Land: Jesuit Accommodation and the Origins of Sinology, University of Hawaii, 1989). Mungello has written at length about Magalhaes' study of Chinese language and history, and concludes that 'whereas Ricci and Trigault had conveyed only a bare sketch of the Chinese language?', Magalhaes together with Semedo greatly advanced and influenced western understanding of the Chinese language, and particularly the early study of the Confucian texts. This copy in good original condition was once in the library of the French writer and explorer Jean-Baptiste Labat, with his manuscript ownership inscription on title and a few marginal annotations (pp. 260/61, 266, 382).
