        A True and perfect narrative of the strange and unexpected finding the crucifix and gold-chain of that pious prince, St. Edward the King and Confessor, which was found... and presented to His Most Sacred Majesty, King James the Second

      London: Printed by J.B. and sold by Randal Taylor, 1688. First Edition. Small 4to. pp. [6], 34. With imprimatur leaf facing the title. Bound in 19th century marbled boards (rubbed). Re-backed in black morocco with older gilt lettered spine laid on. Bookplate depicting a baron's crown on inside front cover. Sticker removed from front end paper. Booklet is trimmed on the bottom obscuring the lower printed border line on the title page, (but not affecting any text). Plenty of space remains in the margins of the text pages. 40 sheets of 19th century blank paper are bound in the rear. Top edge gilt. The author is actually Henry Keepe writing under the pseudonym of Charles Taylour. His booklet, addressed to King James II, describes how he (Keepe) salvaged the crucifix and gold chain of Edward the Confessor from a damaged tomb at Westminster and how he later presented this treasure to the newly crowned king. The author claims that his discovery of the artifact on June 11, 1685 was a "forerunner of the Good News" that James had defeated his enemies (presumably the Duke of Monmouth). Keepe then relates three previous occasions when King Edward's body was disinterred. On each occasion the corpse was supposedly found in a miraculously uncorrupted state. These stories stand in some contrast to the author's own experience. Although Keepe stresses that the tomb's artifacts, including the gold chain and crucifix, correspond to historical accounts, he also reveals (perhaps inadvertently) that the Confessor's body was nothing but bones. Unusual and scarce piece. ESTC locates only 7 copies in the U.S. OCLC lists 5 locations. [ESTC R12288; Wing K128; Clancy, English Catholic Books, 565].

        Relazione della città d'Athene, colle provincie dell'Attica, Focia, Beozia, e Negroponte, ne'tempi, che furono queste passeggiate

      Parma: Galeazzo Rosati, 1688. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (4) ff including half-title, 135 pp, plus engraved portrait and 6 plates of Athens. Bound in old red half linen over marbled boards. Scattered foxing to margins, otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and crisp. Extremely rare first edition of this account of Athens by the Italian adventurer Cornelio Magni, one of very few accounts of that city to appear in the early modern era and one of even fewer to give accurate, up to date eyewitness illustrations of its monuments. "After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Turkish conquest of Greece a few years later, Athens, and the Acropolis in particular, became virtually inaccessible to foreigners. For inspiration and examples from the classical past, the architects of the Renaissance thus relied on Roman ruins, which, though regarded as mere imitations of the Greek originals, were readily visible throughout Europe" (Middleton, "The Early Exploration of Greece"). Until the dawn of the 18th century, "classical Greek architecture was understood almost entirely on the basis of the writings of the first-century B. C. Roman architect Vitruvius.it remained no more than a literary trope, for there was no real knowledge of the architecture of Greece." Cornelio Magni was a member of a landmark expedition to Greece in 1674 led by the French ambassador Nointel. The present work deals specifically with the expedition's time in Athens and the surrounding area (including Marathon and several isolated monasteries). He includes detailed descriptions of each monument he encounters - some of which, like the Temple of Theseon - are relatively well-preserved today - but others of which, eg. the Parthenon - are not. These textual descriptions are accompanied by 6 plates depicting: 1) a folding city plan of Athens, 2) the Temple of Theseon 3) The Lantern of Demosthenes 4) The Temple of the Winds 5) The Temple of Minerva (ie the Parthenon) 6) a bust of Ceres One of the first modern Europeans to sketch these monuments, Magni appears to have had some interest in their architectural history: he notes, for example, that drawings of the Temple of the Winds were made by a certain Italian architect, Francesco Zambetti in 1465, and are preserved in the Bibliotheca Barberini in Rome; we have been unable to trace these. It is interesting to note that Magni's illustrations depict the city prior to the Venetian bombardment of Athens which destroyed or damaged many of the city's most famous monuments. Late 17th century architectural writers such as Claude Perrault and Roland Fréart (Sieur de Chambray) still relied heavily on antiquated ideas of Greek architecture, precisely because there were no modern records to discuss. Although several Westerners had made inroads into Ottoman-controlled Greece beginning in the early 17th century, Nointel specifically applied for, and was granted, permission to travel freely around Ottoman lands and brought a draughtsman with him to record both architecture and scenery in the areas he visited. It was the literary aftermath of this expedition which seems to have re-introduced modern Athens to the European readers - an illustrated account edited by Jacob Spon appearing as early as 1674, prior to Antoine des Barres' L'estat present de l'Archipel (1678). Magni appears to have published his own account in response to the growing interest in Athens evinced by his colleagues' works. OCLC shows 2 US copies, at Harvard and the Met (lacking portrait). * OCLC 19911544; compare Atabey 750; for a good overview of modern travel to Greece, cf "The Early Exploration of Greece", in preface to The Ruins of the Most Beautiful Monuments of Greece (ed Middleton).

      1688. Justinian I (483-565 CE), Emperor of the East. Godefroy, Denis [1549-1622], Editor and Annotator. Codicis Dn. Justiniani Sacratissimi Principis Pp. Aug. Repetitae Praelectionis Libri XII. Postrema Editio Prioribus Auctior et Emendatior. Frankfurt: Sumptibus Societatis. Imprimebat Balthas. Christoph. Wust., 1688. [xvi] pp, 282 columns. Quarto (10" x 8"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, ties lacking.

Handsome. * With an index of titles and Godefroy's edition of the Twelve Tables, Constitutiones Friderici II, Extravagantes, Liber de Pace Constantiae and Epitome Feudorum. Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 530 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis preserved and restated all existing Roman law. Compiled in three years under the direction of Tribonium, it was both a critical restatement of earlier law and jurisprudential writings and a complete collection of recent legislation. It is divided into four books, the Institutes, Digest, Code and Novels. The Code contains the laws in force during Justinian's reign. It is divided into 12 books. Book 1 deals with ecclesiastical law, the sources of law, and the duties of high officials. Books 2-8 deal with private law. Book 9 deals with criminal law. Books 10-12 deal with administrative law. It received a great deal of commentary during the medieval and early modern eras. That of Denis Godefroy was influential well into the twentieth century. Godefroy was a jurist, humanist, historian, scholar of Roman law and professor at the Universities of Geneva and Heidelberg. He was also the first to apply the collective name Corpus Juris Civilis to Justinian's works. KVK locates 5 copies. This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        Peregranacion que ha hecho de l mayor parte del Mundo

      Zarazoga & Valencia,: Pasqual Bueno & Iayme de Bordazar, 1688 &, 1697.. Two works bound together, square octavo, woodcut headpiece, some spotting and very insignificant damage to the lower corners of a few pages (not affecting text); a handsome copy in nineteenth-century polished calf, spine banded and gilt, joints starting but still very firm. The rare complete account of Cubero's travels, comprising two separately-published and entertaining works by Pedro Cubero Sebasti·n (1645-c.1697). Each is complete in its own right, and the two are only occasionally seen together as here to form a complete work.Cubero was a Spanish priest best known for the first work here, his account of his journey around the world. In what has been claimed to have been the first circumnavigation from west to east, Cubero travelled mainly by land rather than sea. He was certainly one of the earliest circumnavigators to travel independently rather than as part of an expedition. He gives much detail on the peoples he observed, told with a great deal of charm. The account includes interesting descriptions of exotic destinations such as India and China, in particular. The final leg of his journey took him overland from Acapulco to Veracruz, and he includes detail on the religious activities and settlements in New Spain. It is entirely possible to trace his route today based on the descriptions he gives, through what remain very remote areas of Mexico.The second work here is a continuation of Cubero's travels, and certainly the rarer of the two. 'This second part concentrates largely on his adventures with the army in Europe, as well as describing the battle of Arsan and other notable events. Named Apostolic Confessor to the army of the Holy Roman Emperor, he served the Emperor against the Turks in Ungria, and was present at the blockade of Buda.' (Howgego)Cubero studied in Zaragoza and Salamanca, and after his ordination travelled to Rome to join Propaganda Fide, the missionary arm of the Catholic Church. As a result, in 1670 he undertook a journey to East Asia, eventually completing a round the world trip: the first time that such a considerable part of the trip had been done overland in Asia and North America. 'He apparently visited the west coast of India, where he observed the decay of Goa, then sailed around the coast to Madras, where he observed Hindu rites. After crossing to Malacca he was thrown into prison by the Dutch. Banished from Malacca, he proceeded to Manila and then, by way of Mexico, to Europe, where he arrived in 1679' (Howgego). He returned to Madrid in January 1680, in time to join the celebrations for the arrival of Maria Luisa of OrlÈans, recently married to King Charles II of Spain.The first account is present in the "segunda impression" (the catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library calls this more properly the fourth edition: a first version was published in Madrid in 1680, and then extended and revised for a Naples edition of 1682). This edition was printed in Zaragoza (no doubt in part because of Cubero's connection with the city); all early editions of this work are of some rarity, and it was this Zaragoza edition which was known to Salva.The second work is in the first (only?) edition; it is much scarcer, and was not known to Brunet.Brunet, II 437; Catalogo de Obras Impresasí Universitat de Valencia, 1973 & 1974; Howgego, I C225; JCB, 688/64; Sabin, 17821.

        Geography Rectified: or, a Description of the World, in all its kingdoms, provinces, countries, ... &c. As also their commodities, coins, weights, and measures, compared with those at London. Illustrated with seventy six maps. The second edition, enlarged with above thirty sheets more in the description, and about thirty new maps

      London: printed for Robert Morden and Thomas Cokerill, 1688. Small quarto. (7 3/4 x 6 inches). Title-page printed in red and black. 78 copper- engraved maps, all printed so that they are integral with the text, including the leaf inserted between pp.544 and 545 (as issued) with the map and description of Bermuda. (Lacking the final three text leaves [pp. 591-596], 'catalogue' of maps leaf defective and laid down onto a sheet of early 19th-century wove paper with many entries supplied in manuscript, three maps shaved with loss [Spain, 'Sclavonia' and the map of New England and New York on p.576], text leaf C1 torn with some loss, 14 other text leaves with clean tears or repaired tears). Contemporary calf (spine worn, stitching defective). Second expanded edition of Morden's charming atlas. The first edition (published in 1680) contained 62 maps, compared to the 78 in the present work. The section on the Americas starts at p.512 and runs to the end: the maps in this section include a general map of America (in Burden's 'State 3', with California still shown as an island). The others delineate various regions: Terra Magellanica; Chili and Paraguay; Brazile; Castilla del Or Guiana Peru the country of ye Amazones; The Western Islands; Insulae Jamaicae; Barbados; Aestivarum Insualae ac Barmudas; Mexico or New Spaine; New Mexico; Florida and ye Great Lakes of Canada.; Carolina; Virginia [with Maryland]; new Jarsey and Pensilvania; New England and New York; North West part of America. The finely-observed maps may well have been engraved by Herman Moll: they are very similar in style and Moll's earliest known work was for Moses Pitt in 1678 so he was active at the time. Cf.

      London; 1688/1686 And (Paris, 1688): for Ric. chiswel/ Printed By J.H. For Luke Meredith King James II was closely attached to freemasonry and it was widely believed that the Jesuits used the system to further goal to reintroduce the idea of the papacy's supremacy in England. When this letter was translated into English in 1688, it contributed to the outcry that Popery was being brought back into England and soon King James II fled to France. The ideas in this rare pamphlet were typical of how a few distortions became known as facts and contributed to the Glorious Revolution which took place without bloodshed followed by the invitation of William and Mary to ascend to the English throne. Three books bound in one each with their own title pages. Of the Incurable Scepticism: (2)pp. preface, 159pp., Of Some Queries: (2)pp preface, 39pp. p. 39 has piece torn away to upper corner affecting a few words, title page with light damp stain to bottom corner. .8pp. titled Three Letters; A letter from a Jesuit at Liege, to a Jesuit at Fribourg, giving an account of the happy progress of Religion in England and, The answer of the Reverend Father La Chese, confessor to the King, dated at the end 1688.

        Digressiones Justinianeae In Partes Duas, Quarum Altera Nova,

      1688. Huber, Ulrich [1636-1694]. Digressiones Justinianeae: In Partes Duas, Quarum Altera Nova, Distinctae: Quibus Varia & Imprimis Humaniora Juris Continentur: Insertus Est De Jure in Re & Ad Rem Quod Dicitur Tractatus: & Adjecta De Ratione Discendi Atque Docendi Juris Diatribe, Per Modum Dialogi: Cum Indice Rerum & Verborum. Franeker: Apud Johannem Gyselaar, Henricum Amama, & Zachariam Taedama, 1688. [xxx], 632 [i.e. 528], [4], 63, [17] pp. Each section preceded by divisional title page. Quarto (7-3/4" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine. Light soiling, spine somewhat darkened, corners and spine ends bumped, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, text block just beginning to detach, but still quite secure, a few gatherings slightly loose. Title page printed in red and black. Large woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown, small stamps and markings to endleaves and verso of title page. A solid copy. * Third edition, and the final authorial edition. With indexes. Huber was a well-known Dutch jurist and professor at the Universities of Franeker, Utrecht and Leyden. He was also a judge in Friesland and the author of numerous legal works on Roman and Roman-Dutch law. He was as important in his day as Grotius, and his work remains influential in South Africa. First published in 1664, Digressiones Justinianeae went through eight editions, the final in 1721. More an essay collection than a treatise, it collects his thoughts on a variety of Roman law topics. He also discusses legal pedagogy and the work of his contemporaries and near-contemporaries, such as Grotius and Hobbes. These latter sections are especially interesting because they show what a learned contemporary thought of their work when it was new. They are similar in many regards to reviews in learned journals or publications like the New York Review of Books. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 86 (4).

La mappa circolò sia come singola carta che come tavola componente l?opera Isolario dell?Atlante Veneto che Coronelli pubblicatò a Venezia nel 1696. L?incisione rappresenta il territorio amministrativo della costa adriatica compreso tra l?Istria e l?Albania. Essa fu una delle prime mappe tematiche raffiguranti l?organizzazione amministrativo-territoriale della Dalmazia, quando questa divenne parte del territorio della Repubblica Veneta. Bibliografia: Lago-Rossit, Descriptio Histriae, tav. XCIII, pp. 186-187. In 1690 Vincenzo Coronelli drew this two-sheets map depicting the coasts of Istria and Dalmatia. The map was published both as a single map and as a part of the Island Book of the Atlante Veneto which Coronelli published in Venice in 1696. This engraving depicts the administrative territory of the Adriatic coasts taken between Istria and Albania and it represents one of the first thematic maps about the organizational-administrative scheme of the area, when Dalmatia became part of the Venetian Republic.

        Relazione della città d'Athene, colle provincie dell'Attica, Focia, Beozia, e Negroponte, ne'tempi, che furono queste passeggiate

      Galeazzo Rosati Parma: Galeazzo Rosati, 1688. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (4) ff including half-title, 135 pp, plus engraved portrait and 6 plates of Athens. Bound in old red half linen over marbled boards. Scattered foxing to margins, otherwise a very good copy, pages clean and crisp. Extremely rare first edition of this account of Athens by the Italian adventurer Cornelio Magni, one of very few accounts of that city to appear in the early modern era and one of even fewer to give accurate, up to date eyewitness illustrations of its monuments."After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Turkish conquest of Greece a few years later, Athens, and the Acropolis in particular, became virtually inaccessible to foreigners. For inspiration and examples from the classical past, the architects of the Renaissance thus relied on Roman ruins, which, though regarded as mere imitations of the Greek originals, were readily visible throughout Europe" (Middleton, "The Early Exploration of Greece"). Until the dawn of the 18th century, "classical Greek architecture was understood almost entirely on the basis of the writings of the first-century B. C. Roman architect Vitruvius.it remained no more than a literary trope, for there was no real knowledge of the architecture of Greece." Cornelio Magni was a member of a landmark expedition to Greece in 1674 led by the French ambassador Nointel. The present work deals specifically with the expedition's time in Athens and the surrounding area (including Marathon and several isolated monasteries). He includes detailed descriptions of each monument he encounters - some of which, like the Temple of Theseon - are relatively well-preserved today - but others of which, eg. the Parthenon - are not. These textual descriptions are accompanied by 6 plates depicting: 1) a folding city plan of Athens, 2) the Temple of Theseon 3) The Lantern of Demosthenes 4) The Temple of the Winds 5) The Temple of Minerva (ie the Parthenon) 6) a bust of CeresOne of the first modern Europeans to sketch these monuments, Magni appears to have had some interest in their architectural history: he notes, for example, that drawings of the Temple of the Winds were made by a certain Italian architect, Francesco Zambetti in 1465, and are preserved in the Bibliotheca Barberini in Rome; we have been unable to trace these. It is interesting to note that Magni's illustrations depict the city prior to the Venetian bombardment of Athens which destroyed or damaged many of the city's most famous monuments.Late 17th century architectural writers such as Claude Perrault and Roland Fréart (Sieur de Chambray) still relied heavily on antiquated ideas of Greek architecture, precisely because there were no modern records to discuss. Although several Westerners had made inroads into Ottoman-controlled Greece beginning in the early 17th century, Nointel specifically applied for, and was granted, permission to travel freely around Ottoman lands and brought a draughtsman with him to record both architecture and scenery in the areas he visited. It was the literary aftermath of this expedition which seems to have re-introduced modern Athens to the European readers - an illustrated account edited by Jacob Spon appearing as early as 1674, prior to Antoine des Barres' L'estat present de l'Archipel (1678). Magni appears to have published his own account in response to the growing interest in Athens evinced by his colleagues' works.OCLC shows 2 US copies, at Harvard and the Met (lacking portrait).* OCLC 19911544; compare Atabey 750; for a good overview of modern travel to Greece, cf "The Early Exploration of Greece", in preface to The Ruins of the Most Beautiful Monuments of Greece (ed Middleton).

        MONSIEUR PASCALL'S THOUGHTS, MEDITATIONS, AND PRAYERS, TOUCHING MATTERS MORAL AND DIVINE, AS THEY WERE FOUND IN HIS PAPERS

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1688. First Edition. calf. Near Fine, complete copy of this classic. The First Edition in English of Pascal's classic Les Pensees (1665). Octavo bound in early calf neatly rebacked at a later date in a slightly lighter shade of leather. Complete with front and rear blanks: [42], 375, [1] pages. The French mathematician and theologian, who invented the first digital calculator, wrestled with the inability of reason to understand God. His work with Fermat on the nature of probability presaged the development of modern decision theory, on the basis of which he argued that belief in God, although not rational, is a good bet: "Le coeur a ses raisons que le raison ne connait point" (The heart has its reasons that reason does not know at all.). Pascal died painfully at the age of 39 from what was likely cancer.

Han var brorson till Claude de Mesmes d'Avaux som var involverad i en stor del av Sveriges diplomati under de tyska krigen. Häri behandlas bl. a. freden i Nijmegen, där d'Avaux var fransk huvudförhandlare. Berör dock huvudsakligen förhandlingarna mellan Frankrike och Nederländerna.
