The "Needful Caveat" is signed Alexander Ross (c.1590-1654), who was chaplain to King Charles I and is usually assumed to have been responsible for the translation as a whole, which was first published in 1649 in quarto and octavo editions. It was based on the first edition in French, which had appeared in 1647. The work was originally intended for royal dedication but was not ready by the time of Charles's execution in January 1649; on 19 March parliament issued a warrant to seize all copies of the book and Ross was summoned before a parliamentary committee, though the translation was eventually published several weeks later, with a prefatory address entitled "The Translator to the Christian Reader" together with Ross's caveat; there is also a 13-page "Life of Mahomet".

Hooghe, Romeijn de
GROOTSTE EN BELANGRIJKSTE KAART VAN HAARLEM"Harlemum", kopergravure vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1688, uitgegeven door Bernardus Cleynhens te Haarlem na 1754. Afm.Het maken van een grote wandkaart had veel van doen met het benadrukken van de importantie van een stad. Meestal was er daarnaast nog een directe aanleiding als een zojuist begonnen of voltooide uitbreiding of het feit dat men moest concurreren met een andere stad. Die kaarten kwamen er van Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Den Haag, Leiden,? Delft en Haarlem. Het maken van zo'n kaart was een hele onderneming. Een landmeter diende de stad opnieuw te meten, waarna hij een visueel aantrekkelijke kaart maakte. Deze manuscriptkaart moest dan door een graveur of etser op de koperplaat worden overgebracht. Voor het randwerk of versieringen werden vaak weer andere kunstenaars ingehuurd. Vervolgens moesten alle platen door een plaatdrukker worden afgedrukt, gemonteerd, eventueel door een 'afsetter' ingekleurd en tenslotte ingelijst. Zoiets kostte verscheidene jaren arbeid en de totale kosten voor zo'n honderd of honderdvijftig exemplaren kwamen op bedragen tussen de anderhalf- en twee?nhalf duizend gulden.De in Haarlem gevestigde Romeyn de Hooghe had zijn stad laten opmeten en was begonnen met het maken van de plattegrond. De Hooghe wilde de plattegrond versieren met profil, kercken, poorten en andere voorname gebouwen en stelde voor de kaart ten behoeve van dese stad in een plaete te snijden zodat er afdrukken van konden worden gemaakt, Hij vroeg de kaart aan de burgemeesters te mogen opdragen. Zij besloten de dedicatie in d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Perrault; Alexander Pitfeild [translator]
London: Printed by Joseph Streater, for sale by T Basset, J Robinson, B Aylmer, Joh Southby And W Canning, 1688 A very good copy of this important work on comparative anatomy with engraved title; rubricated title and 30 plates. The original publication had 2 separate parts, both complete in themselves - the second section 'The Measure of the Earth' translated by Richard Waller, is not present. Alexander Pitfeild undertook to translate this work, originally led by Charles Perrault for the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris. Animals, mostly from the royal menageries at Vincennes and Versailles, were supplied to the Royal Academy, for detailed study and dissection. The first publication including 13 species, appeared in 1671 with a second volume 5 years later. The publications had very short print runs and were very expensive being elephant folio with detailed art work mainly by Sebastien Leclerc. There was a growing desire to learn about natural history and the nature of animals and copies of Perrault's work were almost impossible to obtain. Pitfeild's translation was much needed and it became the only work published on comparative anatomy in England between 1660 and 1700. Richard Waller undertook the illustrations, copying Leclerc but reducing the size, taking care to keep the drawings in proportion. The second part, missing here, was undertaken not because it was linked in any way, but because it was important and of interest to the Royal Society. Copies of Pitfeild's translation are extremely scarce. This copy is in a new binding with cloth spine with title label and paper … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERCULEI, Marzio
Mutinae, ex Typographia Haeredum Cassiani, 1688. In folio (cm. 33,1); mezza pelle dell'Ottocento: antiporta con croce e musica in xilografia; frontespizio in rosso e nero; pp. 12 nn., 265 + 11 nn. + un foglietto di "errata" inserito tra p. 205 e la prima carta n.n. (prima errata). Testo incorniciato; molte raffinate vignette in xilografia (ultima cena, crocifissione, resurrezione...). A piena pagina diverse croci con all'interno della musica ed al lato due angeli. Bella copia. Marzio Erculei nacque ad Otricoli (Terni)... Quasi certamente compì i suoi studi musicali a Roma nel collegio germanico-ungarico... Dopo una breve comparsa nella cappella del Duomo di Milano, nel 1651, già ordinato sacerdote entrò come "musico ecclesiastico" al servizio della corte Estense di Modena, rimanendovi fino al 1674. In quegli anni si distinse come soprano in alcune opere date a Modena. Nel 1674, dopo aver invano tentato di ottenere un canonicato nel duomo di Modena, si ritirò dal servizio presso la corte ed entrò nella locale Congregazione religiosa della Beata Vergine e di S. Carlo, proseguendo l'insegnamento della musica e del canto e dando vita ad una sorta di scuola per giovani cantanti... Tra i suoi allievi: Antonio Maria Pacchioni, Rinaldo Bertoni e Francesco Montecchi... All'attività didattica del canto, in particolare di quello gregoriano, sono per lo più collegate le sue pubblicazioni: "Cantus omnis ecclesiasticus" contenente oltre ai canti gregoriani della Settimana Santa, alcuni falsobordoni a tre o quattro voci, adespoti e forse attribuibili all'E. stesso.
