All eight antique Roman Catholic Christian Books, are offered as is, in rather great condition. All are leather bound. Better than expected condition for the extreme age. The books were gathered from an old cellar from overseas and some pages, in some of the books, have mild small mold stains that look like spots. Other than that, no fading, no missing pages, no folds, and no smears. Great for the serious religious artifact collector! Timeline considerations: *1603: William Shakespeare publishes his masterpiece: Hamlet. *1605: Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes publishes Don Quixote, considered to be the first modern novel and is still widely read today. *1609: The world's first newspaper is published in Strasbourg in the Holy Roman Empire. *1610: Italian scientist Galileo Galilei publishes a report that proves the Earth orbits the Sun. *1610: Tea is imported to Europe for the first time by the Dutch East India Company. *1628: British physician William Harvey publishes a scientific book that explains the circulatory system on how arteries and veins work and the heart as the center. *1656: Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens invents the pendulum clock. This new type of clock kept accurate and steady time and became a standard design for the next couple of centuries. *1674: Dutch scientist Antonie van Leeuwenhoek becomes the world's first person to observe micro- organisms with a microscope of his own design. *1687: English scientist Isaac Newton publishes a book that describes the laws of gravity and the laws of m motion. *1683: Oxford University in England opens up the world … [Click Below for Full Description]

WIT, Frederick de.
Extremely rare Covens & Mortier edition of De Wit's Atlas maior, first published by Frederick de Wit ca. 1688, but continued by Pierre Mortier from 1708 (when he bought De Wit's plates) and by Covens & Mortier from 1721, here with the engraved allegorical title-page and all 76 maps and their decorations beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand. It combines maps originally issued by Frederick de Wit, with ones from Nicolaes Visscher II and others. De Wit and Visscher were the leading map and atlas publishers in the Netherlands after a fire crippled the Blaeu firm in 1672. De Wit is known especially for the beautiful pictorial decorations on his maps. Only one other copy is recorded in the literature, at the Depôt de Marine in Paris. "Although the copies must have been numerous, very few are left." (Koeman). The atlas opens with Carel Allard's ca. 1696 world map in 2 hemispheres. Among the other maps are 6 of the continents; Nicholas Sanson's map of the poles; 2 maps nominally of the Ottoman Empire but including besides the entire Arabian peninsula, also most of Iran and either the entire Mediterranean Sea (Visscher) or its eastern part (Jaillot); Homann's map of Iran; De l'Isle's map of India, Southeast Asia and the East Indies (folding); Visscher's map of the West Indies; De Wit's maps of Malta and of Corsica & Sardinia. Within Europe the atlas gives special emphasis to the Low Countries, with 19 maps.With a long tear along the fold repaired in 2 double-page maps and small tears where two folds cross in 1 larger folding map, but otherwise in very good condition and … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALLUCCI, Giovanni Paolo.
Adams G167; Burden 96; Cantamessa 1688; Crone 98; Erwin Tomash 23; Shirley 199; for Gallucci: G. Ernst, "GALLUCCI, Giovanni Paolo" in: Treccani LI (1998). First edition of a well-illustrated encyclopaedia of astronomical and surveying instruments available from classical times to the time of publication, by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Paolo Gallucci (1538-ca. 1621), a well-known private tutor to the Venetian nobility and founding member of the Second Venetian Academy. It gives a comprehensive summary of the knowledge of astronomy, cosmography and mathematics at the time of Galileo. "It describes instruments designed by others (Finé, Apian, Gemma Frisius, etc.) and gives credit to the original inventors. The one exception to this is the Visorio, which Gallucci claims as his own, but an identical instrument by Waldseemüller can be found illustrated in the 1512 edition of Margarita Philosophica by Gregor Reisch. Other instruments, such as the Hemispherical Uranico (a complicated device used for computations dealing with the moon, sun and stars), appear to be of Gallucci's invention. Besides the usual portable instruments, he also includes a simple quadrant and a two-ringed armillary built into the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence" (Erwin Tomash). For some of the instruments this is the only description available.The present second issue of the first edition appeared a year after the first.With the owner's label of the Capuchin friar and astronomer Agostino da Piacenza (1747-1839) and the related library stamp "Bibliotheca Capucinorum Placentiae" on the engraved ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beughem, Cornelius (c. 1637-1710)
Joh. Wolters, Amsterdam. 12mo. 6 ff., 191 pp. Contemporary Dutch vellum, large ornament on covers stamped in blind, small fleurs-de-lis at corners of outer panel, smooth spine lettered in MS. First two blank leaves a little dry, some even toning throughout. An attractive copy. First Edition of the First Bibliography of Incunabula. Beughem applies for the first time the word "incunabulum" to the books themselves; this term had been invented in 1639 by Bernard von Mallinkrot, but was utilized by him to describe the earliest *era* of printing, the time limit having been introduced by Saubert. Beughem's arrangement is alphabetical under authors, to which a short biographical note has been added, a feature that took 225 years to be adopted by another incunabulist, Isak Collijn, in his catalogue of the incunabula in the Royal Library at Stockholm, 1914, and in turn adopted by GW. Titles, places of imprint, and dates follow; in general, the names of printers are not mentioned, but exceptions are given for exceptional books, i.e. the Fust and Schoeffer Cicero and Ratdolt's Euclid. According to E. von Rath, "Vorläufer des Gesammtkatalogs der Wiegendrucke" (in Hiersemann Festschrift, 1924), there are about 3,000 entries, an extraordinary achievement considering that by 1688 Beughem had already listed more than 10% of all incunable editions that are now known. His two appendices list anonymous works and undated imprints which Beughem believed to have been printed in the fifteenth century.

Richard Blome
Abraham Wolfgang, Amsterdam, 1688. A fair copy of the first French edition of Richard Blome's guide to British interests in North America with 6 (of 7) folding maps. The 1st edition was in English and published a year previously. The maps for the French edition were redrawn close copies of those in the English edition, and 4 of the maps in this copy have Robert Morden's name on them. The guide is a nice pocket size and was popular, however, some of the mapping is a little strange - the map of New York is notable in that Manhattan is shown as a peninsula not an island. This copy is missing the map of the Mid-Atlantic States - "Nouvelle Carte de la Pensylvanie Maryland, Virginie et Nouvelle Iarsey". The book is in contemporary full leather which is very worn with cracked hinges and a delaminating spine. The boards are reasonably sound with some leather loss at corners and a small area on the front board. The endpapers are marbled. Contents: 2 blank; title; avertissement 2pp; Text 1-331 pp Fin; index table; 2 final blanks. The maps are: Carte de la Jamaique; Ile des Barbades; Les Barmudes; Nouvelle Carte de la Caroline; Nouvelle Angleterre et Nouvel York; and Partie de L'Amerique. Contents are generally clean with the odd spot or mark. There is a repaired fold tear to Nouvelle Angleterre and a small tear at the base of p95. There are some light ink marks on p 299.

Wien - Gesamtansicht
Dresden, Mathesius. Nebehay-W. 729, 1. - Schönes Gesamtansich der Stadt Wien von der Laimgrube (d. i. Südwesten) aus, knapp vor der zweiten Türkenbelagerung. - Daniel Suttinger (ca. 1640 - ca. 1690) hielt sich ab 1671/1672 ständig in Wien auf. "Bereits ab 1672 war er mit der Anfertigung eines (verschollenen) Holzmodells der Stadt Wien beauftragt, das er 1680 ablieferte und das eine Grundlage für den Anguissola-Marinoni-Plan bildete. Ab 1676 schuf er qualitätvolle Stadtprofile beziehungsweise Ansichten Wiens von Norden und Süden aus, von denen fünf überliefert sind (drei als Federzeichnungen, zwei als Stiche des 1683 in Wien weilenden Nürnberger Kupferstechers Johann Christoph Weigel). Während der Zweiten Türkenbelagerung (1683) war Suttinger in Wien und stand in engem Kontakt mit dem Oberstleutnant und Oberingenieur Georg Rimpler, dessen Festungsmanier Suttinger später in zwei Schriften verteidigte. Noch 1683 erhielt Suttinger den Titel eines Hauptmanns, im selben Jahr entstand eine Vogelschau des westlichen Teils der Stadt mit türkischen Laufgräben und Minen (circa 1:2.700), die Suttinger auch selbst stach (danach schuf er auch ein [verschollenes] Holzmodell), 1687 folgte ein Plan der Entsatzschlacht mit Darstellung der Umgebung Wiens (verschollene Federzeichnung, 1688 durch Mauritius Bodenehr in Dresden gestochen, circa 1:18.000). 1688 veröffentlichte er auch einen Bericht über die Belagerung. 1684 stellte Suttinger einen (nach 1939 verschollenen) Grundrissplan der Stadt Wien fertig (Federzeichnung, circa 1:1.800), der die Namen der Hausbesitzer enthielt und heute nur in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Church of England
1688 Westminster Confession of Faith Church of Scotland Catechisms Calvinism ‘The Westminster Confession of Faith” was a 1646 confessional of the Church of England and doctrine of the Church of Scotland. It was become adopted by Congressionalists and Baptists in England alike supporting the Church of England as the only approved church. This work is a systematic exposition of orthodoxy which is highly influenced by Puritan theology, discusses the trinity and other doctrines that are specific to Protestantism. However, the most controversial inclusion is the statement of the Pope being the Antichrist! This was a common belief among English protestants in the 17th-century, but the ‘Westminster Confessional’ drove home this point, along with the notion that the Catholic mass was a form of idolatry. This work was printed along with the Westminster Larger and Smaller Catechisms, the central and most important catechisms of Calvinism in Great Britain.

Coronelli, Father Vincenzo (1650-1718)
Rare Globe Gore! Venice 1688 copper engraved map; overall 49 x 36 cm; plate approx. 43 x 26/ 10 cm. Paper evenly toned with some faint contemporary ink smudges; 2 printer’s creases; o/w exc. cond. A rare and beautifully engraved gore for Coronelli’s 42 inch terrestrial globe, covering the area from Florida/Louisiana/Texas to the Great Lakes and Hudson Bay, with parts of the Carolinas, Virginia and the Chesapeake area and parts of the West Indies. The map is embellished with indigenous people, fauna and flora, showing some interesting encounters with crocodiles. Nice strong impression with nice wide margins. Coronelli was a map and globe maker from Venice who joined the Franciscan Order in 1665. In 1684, he founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti in Venice, and in 1685, became Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. In 1681, he was invited by the French King, Louis XIV, to make a pair of 3.85 m diameter globes. Once back in Venice, in 1686, he opened a globe making workshop. After having produced several large scale globes to various European rulers, he produced a 42 inch diameter globe in 1688 of which several examples are in various collections around the World. Occasionally, single gore sheets appear on the market which makes them sought after collector items. [ref: 3266]

Coronelli, Vincenzo Maria
published in Venice. 1688. 48 x 29.2 cm, copper engraving. One of the EXTREMELY RARE GLOBE GORES depicting different parts of the world. Map shows South America, particularly Brazil, with a large cartouche, with Pope Alexander VI and an extensive text explanation. This exceptional series of globe gores was originally engraved for a 110 cm. diameter terrestrial globe in 1688 - as here. They were subsequently reissued in individual sheet format in Coronelli's "Libro dei globi" and in his World Atlas Isolario in the 1690s. "Coronelli seems to have sought to omit nothing that might be of interest to geographers, navigators and explorers. There are an unusual number of legends, all explanatory and informative, but which never crowd the space available. Many of the vignettes of ships and fishing scenes throughout the world are worthy of separate reproduction. Coronelli makes comments on all the most important explorations and discoveries and undoubtedly had access to the findings of the French Academy of Sciences" [Shirley]. REFERENCE: R.

THEOPHRAST - LA BRUYÈRE - THEOPHRASTUS - THEOPHRASTE.
Paris, Estienne Michallet, Se vend à Bruxelles chez Jean Leonard, 1688. Later (ca. 1800) cardboardbdg. w. marbled peper. Library-labels on back. Hinges, capitals and corners w. traces of use. Occationally brownspotted. (56), 226, (1) pp. ¶ This is the reimpression of the original second edition with the words "Se vend à Bruxelles, chez Jean Leonard" on title-page, from the same year as the first original edition. "Cette réimpression, assez belle, a 28 ff. prélim. et 226 pp. de texte, plus un f. pour le privilége; l'errata n'y est pas reproduit, bien que les corrections qu'il indique n'aient pas été faites dans le texte." (Brunet III, p.720). This work includes the first French translation of Theophrast's Characters (and probably the first translation into any modern language?). "Theophraste a eu le grand honneur, comme on sait, d'être ttraduit au XVIIe siècle par La Bruyère: et c'est pourquoi, en France plus que dans tout autre pays, en dehors même du cercle des érudits, son nom et son opuscule sont populaires." (navarre, Budé-edition of "Caractères", Paris, 1920).Jean de la Bruyère (1639/1644 - 1996) was a very famous French moralist and writer. "C'est au commencement de 1688 que parut la premiere édition des "Caractères de Théophraste traduits du grec, ou les Mæurs de ce siècle." L'auteur mettait ses propres observations sur la société moderne sous le patronage d'un ancien." (N.B.G. p. 427). The "Characters" gave La Bruyère quite a few enemies and created furor in the learned world. In Denmark Holberg calls him "trivial and simple" (Epistle 404).

Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1688. Cont. full calf. 5 raised bands on back, back richly gilt, all edges of boards gilt. Lacking leather at capitals, front-hinge cracked, so cords are showing. ¶ Second or third printing of the original edition. The title-page states "seconde edition", but it is probably the third, printed in the same year as the first and second, being a page-by-page re-impression of the second, except for the fact that corrections have been made and the errata-leaf is thus not printed in the third. Both the second and third original editions are from the same year and by the same printer as the first. "La seconde édition, également impr. en 1688 n'offre que quelques légers changements..., et la troisième, sous la même date, ne qu'une simple réimpression de la seconde." (Brunet III:720).

Tachard hatte sich 1685 und 1687 auf Mission in Siam befunden und war bei letzterem Aufenthalt von König Phetracha, der erst kurz davor durch Sturz und Ermordung seines Vorgängers Narai an die Macht gekommen war, zum „Außerordentlichen Botschafter des Königs von Siam" ernannt worden. Der Text beinhaltet neben einer kurzen Skizzierung von Thailand und seines Königshofs eine Chronologie des Aufenthalts der siamesischen Gesandten in Rom, die Beschreibung der mitgebrachten Geschenke und den Wortlaut eines Schreibens von König Phetracha, das Tachard dem Papst während der Audienz in portugiesischer bzw. italienischer Übersetzung vorlas.

(20),411:695,(36) pp. Woodcut on titlepage. A few scattered brownspots. A faint dampstain to lower margins on a few leaves. Oth3rwise internally fine. ¶ Scarce second edition of Arnold's influential "Impartial History of the Church and of Heresy"."In this major revision of church history, Arnold directed his sharpest criticism against those who wrote deeply biased apologetic "orthodox" histories instead of trying to understand where substantial religious differences actually came from. In his view,"heresy making" was usually the defensive reaction of those in authority, rather than a true indictment of unconventional thinkers. He thought that the worst calamity in Church history was its establishment as the accepted and orthodox faith by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the fourth century. Arnold evinced a remarkable sympathy for a huge variety of "heretics." This "impartial history" exercised a wide influence on the German Enlightenment and won approval from such thinkers as Johann Wolfgang Goethe in addition to Leo Tolstoy."

Map shows the region off the coast of Thailan, native boats and a huge wonderfully engraved cartouche. The print shows part of the track of the "Voyage de Siam des pères jesuites envoyés par le roy, aux Indes & à la Chine.." undertaken by G. Tachard, Abbé F. T. de Choisy, and Chevalier de Chaumont sent by Louis XVI in their Embassy to Siam in 1685, starting from Brest. Choisy's official role was to be that of religious instructor to the King of Narai of Siam. This exceptional series of globe gores was originally engraved for a 110 cm. diameter terrestrial globe in 1688 - as here.

TAYLOUR, Charles
Printed by J.B. and sold by Randal Taylor, London, 1688. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beughem, Cornelius (c. 1637-1710)
Amsterdam: Joh. Wolters, 1688. First Edition. 12mo. 6 ff., 191 pp. Contemporary Dutch vellum, large ornament on covers stamped in blind, small fleurs-de-lis at corners of outer panel, smooth spine lettered in MS. First two blank leaves a little dry, some even toning throughout. An attractive copy. First Edition of the First Bibliography of Incunabula. Beughem applies for the first time the word "incunabulum" to the books themselves; this term had been invented in 1639 by Bernard von Mallinkrot, but was utilized by him to describe the earliest *era* of printing, the time limit having been introduced by Saubert. Beughem's arrangement is alphabetical under authors, to which a short biographical note has been added, a feature that took 225 years to be adopted by another incunabulist, Isak Collijn, in his catalogue of the incunabula in the Royal Library at Stockholm, 1914, and in turn adopted by GW. Titles, places of imprint, and dates follow; in general, the names of printers are not mentioned, but exceptions are given for exceptional books, i.e. the Fust and Schoeffer Cicero and Ratdolt's Euclid. According to E. von Rath, "Vorläufer des Gesammtkatalogs der Wiegendrucke" (in Hiersemann Festschrift, 1924), there are about 3,000 entries, an extraordinary achievement considering that by 1688 Beughem had already listed more than 10% of all incunable editions that are now known. His two appendices list anonymous works and undated imprints which Beughem believed to have been printed in the fifteenth century.

Beughem's arrangement is alphabetical under authors, to which a short biographical note has been added, a feature that took 225 years to be adopted by another incunabulist, Isak Collijn, in his catalogue of the incunabula in the Royal Library at Stockholm, 1914, and in turn adopted by GW. Titles, places of imprint, and dates follow; in general, the names of printers are not mentioned, but exceptions are given for exceptional books, i.e. the Fust and Schoeffer Cicero and Ratdolt's Euclid. According to E. von Rath, "Vorläufer des Gesammtkatalogs der Wiegendrucke" (in Hiersemann Festschrift, 1924), there are about 3,000 entries, an extraordinary achievement considering that by 1688 Beughem had already listed more than 10% of all incunable editions that are now known. His two appendices list anonymous works and undated imprints which Beughem believed to have been printed in the fifteenth century.

[RUSSELL, John].
D. Colclough, Freedom of speech in early Stuart England, p. 118; ESTC S115559; Sabin 70762. Rare first and only edition of a controversial Puritan satire in verse, probably written by John Russell (d. 1688), but sometimes attributed to John Rhodes, minister of Enborne, and John Robinson (1575-1625). The anti-Catholic poem criticizes Arminianism, based on the teachings of the Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609), who according to Russell was sent by the pope to trick Protestants. "In the manner of John Donne's Ignatius his Conclave, Russell describes a conclave in Hell which reveals that Arminius was sent as a missionary from Hell to establish popery by the back door while seeming to be a Protestant" (Colclough). Russell links the anti-Calvinist tendencies in England to the influence of Spain and the pope; he praises the anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic preacher Thomas Scott (d. 1626), and laments the loss of the days when England resisted Spain.With the armorial bookplate of the Lord Fairfax of Cameron. With some ink annotations on flyleaf, title-page ruled with (now faint) red ink. The first six leaves with marginal restorations, some foxing. Without the folding frontispiece, included in a small number of copies. In fair condition.
