BOYLE, ROBERT
London: Printed by H. C. for John Taylor, 1688. FIRST EDITION, issue with cancel title. 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 until 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] powe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plattegrond Maastricht - "Traiectum ad Mosam vulgo Maestricht"'Kopergravure uitgegeven door Frederick de Wit in 1688. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (druk): ca. 41 x 50 cm.Frederick de Wit (1630 - 1706), een van de beste graveurs uit de tweede helft van de 17de eeuw, was werkzaam in de Kalverstraat te Amsterdam als graveur en kaartenhandelaar.Door zijn huwelijk met Maria van der Waag in 1661 verwierf hij het burgerschap van de stad. Drie jaar later werd hij tot het St.- Lucasgilde toegelaten. Alhoewel hij als katholiek zeker niet bevoordeeld was, prijkte zijn naam op de stedelijke lijst van "goede mannen"' van 1694 tot 1704.De Wit heeft zich voor deze plattegrond laten inspireren door de kaart die Blaeu in 1649 in zijn stedenboek publiceerde. Hij heeft er wel zorg voor gedragen dat de uitbreiding van de vestingwerken die sedertdien in de strijd met de Fransen aan alle zijden van de stad waren uitgevoerd, op zijn nieuwe kaart zijn aangeduid.Prijs: € 1.650,- (BTW margeregeling).

López de Cogolludo, Diego.
Madrid: Juan Garcia Infanzon, 1688. Folio (29 cm; 11.5"). [1 of 15] ff., 760 pp., [16] ff. 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).

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.

STALKER, John and George PARKER
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLME, Thomas (1624-1695)
[London]: "Surveyed by Tho: Holme Sold by P. Lea at ye Atlas and Hercules in Cheapside", 1688. Copper engraving, hand-coloured 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 left and right. 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. Sheet size: 20½ x 24 inches. Very rare: the first issue of Holme's map of Pennsylvania -- the first map of Pennsylvania. This copy a superb example with contemporary outline colour and wide margins. 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 smaller 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 l … [Click Below for Full Description]

López de Cogolludo, Diego.
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.
