        Peloponnesus

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Modena; date: (d)1689 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 43 x 55; - description: Map of the Peloponnese; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

        Male pantin].[Paris, ca. 1750]. Handcoloured engraving of a man (33.5 x 26 cm), with the separate parts designed to be cut out and assembled to form a puppet.

      - Gumuchian 6028; Metken, ill. 241; cf. Adams & Keene, Paper dolls, pp. 14-20; Hillier, Dolls and doll-makers, p. 45. Rare hand-coloured print for making a jumping jack in the form of a rococo man dressed in a waistcoat, breeches and carrying a plumed hat, possibly intended to represent the French King Louis XV. Rudimentary marionettes such as these with articulated limbs were in great vogue in Paris in the 1740s and 1750s and called pantins after the nearby village where they were supposedly invented. The diarist Edmond Barbier (1689-1771) wrote in his journal in 1747: "At first the Pantins were designed for children's toys; but after a time they were used to amuse the entire public. They were little figures made of pasteboard. All parts of the body were separate and were attached by strings at the back of the figure. When these strings were pulled, the arms, legs, and head were all jointed together and the Pantin could be made to dance These silly things engrossed the attention of all of Paris, amusing everyone to such an extent that you could not go into any house in January 1747, without finding a Pantin hanging by the mantelpiece" (Hillier). D'Alembert wrote in the Encyclopédie, 24 (1778), s.v. "Pantins", that "posterity will find it difficult to believe that in France persons of a ripe age could have, in an access of vertigo that lasted far too long, amused themselves with these ridiculous toys and employed themselves in searching for them with such enthusiasm, while in other countries Pantins were relegated to children of the most tender age" (Adams). Slightly worn and soiled at the edges and with a few spots; in very good condition.

        Mémoire de Mr Daguesseau concernant les droits des fermes du Roy.

      plein vélin moderne, genre ancien. - [Rédigé aux environs de 1689]. Manuscrit in-folio de 732 pp. ; Copie manuscrite exécutée au milieu du XVIIIe, de ces très importants mémoires, qui n’ont jamais été édités. La graphie, d'une belle main anonyme, est uniforme et clairement lisible.Le premier mémoire, concernant la douane de Lyon, a été la principale source de Charléty dans son étude parue dans la Revue d’histoire de Lyon en 1902 et 1903: Le régime douanier de Lyon au XVIIe siècle.Henri d’Aguesseau, père du célèbre chancelier, "après avoir été conseiller au Parlement de Metz et maître des requêtes au Conseil du Roi, avait reçu de Colbert l’intendance du Limousin (1665), celle de la Guyenne, puis celle du Languedoc (1672), où il se signala par son équitable administration et par sa tolérance à l’égard des protestants; rappelé à Paris en 1685, il devint Conseiller d’État, directeur général du commerce et des manufactures de France (1695), président du Conseil de commerce (1700), enfin membre du conseil de régence pour les affaires de finances." (Encyclopédie Berthelot: XIII-754).En 1688, Le Pelletier, contrôleur général des Finances, et successeur de Colbert, désireux de réformer les cinq grosses fermes, ordonna des enquêtes. Le Chancellier d'Aguesseau, dans son Discours sur la vie et la mort [ ] de M. d'Aguesseau (édition de 1812, p. 113), nous renseigne sur l'étendue de la mission assignée à son père et sur la richesse de ce manuscrit : "Un nouveau travail sur les droits des cinq grosses fermes [fut ordonné par Le Pelletier], dont le poids tomba principalement sur mon père, en l'année 1688. Le Roi le chargea de la visite des provinces de Bourbonnois, d'Auvergne, du Lyonnais, du Dauphiné et de la Provence ; pendant que d'autres conseillers d'état parcouraient d'autres provinces dans la même vue. On ne leur donna point de second, comme la première fois, pour les soulager dans cette commission, et M. de la Houssaye, qui se destinait à être maître des requêtes, en profita pour accompagner mon père, et se former de bonne heure sous un si grand maître [.]. Six mois à aller de province en province et de ville en ville, jusqu'à l'extrêmité du royaume, travaillant par-tout avec les intendans, ou plutôt leur apprenant à travailler ; écoutant les plus habiles financiers, interrogeant les négocians de la plus grande réputation, entrant avec tous dans les moindres détails sur l'origine, sur l'étendue, sur la régie des droits du Roi, mais encore plus sur ce qui regardoit le fond du commerce, des manufactures et des arts, pour y découvrir toutes les sources de l'abondance, et tous les moyens qui peuvent servir d'aiguillon à l'industrie. Les mémoires qu'il se donna la peine de faire lui-même sur les matières les plus importantes, et que je conserve précieusement, suffiroient pour montrer l'élévation de son génie et l'ardeur de son zèle pour le bien public."Ce précieux manuscrit comprend : Pp. 3 à 160 : Mémoire concernant les droits de la douane de Lyon. Avec pp. 53 à 66 : Tarif de la douane de Lyon. Pp. 162 à 185 : Mémoire et origine du droit de quatre pour cent qui se paye à l'entrée du royaume sur les drogueries et épiceries.

Avec pp. 303 à 314 : Table des tarifs de la douane de Valence concernant les espèces de marchandises ou denrées qui ont été adjoutées aux présents tarifs et augmentations des droits. Pp. 316 à 444 : Mémoire sur les droits d'imposition foraine de revue, haut passage et traitte domanialle qui se lèvent en Lyonnois, Dauphiné, Languedoc et Provence. Pp. 446 à 454 : Mémoire concernant le droit appellé denier St André. Pp. 456 à 577 : Mémoire concernant les droits des cinq grosses fermes qui se lèvent dans les provinces de Bourbonnois, Bourgogne, Bresse, Bugey, Valromey et pays de Gex, selon l'usage des bureaux qui y sont établis.

        1689 1ed Design of Enslaving England Parliament v King Charles II LAW Ottoman

      London : Printed for R. Baldwin, 1689. First edition. - 1689 1ed Design of Enslaving England Parliament v King Charles II LAW Ottoman “The Constitution had been equally imperfect and destructive of it self, had it been left to the Will and Choice of the Prince whether he would ever summon a Parliament, or put into his Power to dismiss them Arbitrarily at his pleasure.” – Design of Enslaving England, p.1 Originally published in 1681 at the height of the Exclusion Crisis, this book, “The Design of Enslaving England”, This book deals mainly with the reign of Charles II of England and the Exclusion Crisis, where a bill sought to exclude Charles II’s brother James from the throne of England because of his Catholic faith. The author draws similarities to the Medieval Ottoman emperors and the wickedness they portrayed to their successors and subjects. It is evident that the author seeks to promote more power being given to the English Parliament rather than the king himself. A rare pamphlet complete as originally printed. Catalogers disagree on the authorship of this work. Wing attributes this work to Robert Ferguson, however, the ESTC and DNB opt for Sir William Jones to be the author.

        SUSPIROS DE LA FRANCIA ESCLAVA que aspira a ponerse en libertad (Memoria primera, segunda y tercera).

      S.l.n.d. (Barcelona ?, 1689). - in-4. 55pp. Cartonnage moderne. Rarissime édition espagnole des "Soupirs de la France Esclave" ouvrage qui proclamait avec force le principe de la souveraineté du peuple et dont la police de Louis XIV détruisit l'édition française systématiquement. Il a été attribué au protestant Pierre Jurieu et aussi, avec plus de probabilité semble-t-il, à l'historien et théologien Michel Levassor, né vers 1648 mort exilé en Angleterre en 1718. Les "Soupirs" parurent en français sous forme de mémoires, au nombre de quinze, entre le 10 Août 1689 et le 15 Septembre 1690. La collection complète est très rare. Cette édition espagnole se compose seulement des trois premiers mémoires comme en témoigne l'exemplaire conservé à la Biblioteca Nacional, identique au nôtre. Chaque mémoire a un titre particulier : "De la Opression de la Iglesia, de los Parlamentos de la Nobleza y de las Ciudades"; "De la Opression de los Pueblos, de los Impuestos y del mal exemplo de la Hazienda" et "De los tristes efectos de la Potencia Arbitraria y Despotica de la Corte de Francia: que esta Potencia es tan despotica como el Gran Senor de los Turcos". La publication de cet ouvrage en langue espagnole sans nom d'auteur, de traducteur et sans mention de lieu ni nom d'imprimeur, n'était peut-être pas sans rapport avec la politique intérieure de l'Espagne. Le traducteur anonyme termine ainsi sa présentation de l'ouvrage:" Protesto que de quanto he visto deste genero de Papeles (y no ha sido poco) ninguno me ha llenado ni admirado mas que estas incomparables Mémoirias : no dudando yo dezir, que si de alguno se puede esperar utilidad, yà haziendo abrir los ojos para la enmienda à los culpados de lo que reprehende, o yà alentando los oprimidos à esfuerçar quanto pudieren de su parte la restauracion de la libertad; no parace imaginable que otras producciones del ingenio humano puedan conducir y ayudar à tan justificado fin". Rousseurs. Bon exemplaire. Aucun exemplaire au NUC. Palau, 325789.

        [Female pantin].[Paris, ca. 1750]. Handcoloured engraving of a woman (31 x 22 cm), with the separate parts designed to be cut out and assembled to form a puppet.

      Cf. Adams & Keene, Paper dolls, pp. 14-20; Hillier, Dolls and doll-makers, p. 45. Rare hand-coloured print for making a jumping jack in the form of a rococo woman wearing a short dress and a plumed hat, possibly intended to represent a shepherdess from the Commedia dell'arte. Rudimentary marionettes such as these with articulated limbs were in great vogue in Paris in the 1740s and 1750s and called pantins after the nearby village where they were supposedly invented. The diarist Edmond Barbier (1689-1771) wrote in his journal in 1747: "At first the Pantins were designed for children's toys; but after a time they were used to amuse the entire public. They were little figures made of pasteboard. All parts of the body were separate and were attached by strings at the back of the figure. When these strings were pulled, the arms, legs, and head were all jointed together and the Pantin could be made to dance... These silly things engrossed the attention of all of Paris, amusing everyone to such an extent that you could not go into any house in January 1747, without finding a Pantin hanging by the mantelpiece" (Hillier). D'Alembert wrote in the Encyclopédie, 24 (1778), s.v. "Pantins", that "posterity will find it difficult to believe that in France persons of a ripe age could have, in an access of vertigo that lasted far too long, amused themselves with these ridiculous toys and employed themselves in searching for them with such enthusiasm, while in other countries Pantins were relegated to children of the most tender age" (Adams).Slightly worn at the edges; somewhat browned and with a few spots; in good condition.

        Finely illustrated scroll on paper concerning "Nagasaki karafune zukan" ("Picture scroll of Chinese ship and settlement in Nagasaki." Scroll measuring 385 x 3360 mm

      - Japan: late Edo. Until the late 17th century, the Chinese had been permitted to move in Japan quite freely for trading purposes. But in 1689, due to the rise of smuggling activities, the Chinese were restricted, like the Dutch, to a compound on the eastern tip of Nagasaki - called the "Tojin yashiki" ("Chinamen's mansions") - surrounded by a moat and walls with gates which could be locked from the outside. Inside were housed on average 2000 Chinese merchants and sailors, along with interpreters, inspectors, and staff. This scroll depicts two large Chinese ships just off Nagasaki surrounded by a number of smaller transport and supply ships. It is clear that these smaller ships are Japanese based on the clothes the crewmen are wearing. The numerous Japanese government officials are dressed in black robes; they are inspecting the arriving goods (sugar, raw silk, and finished fabrics) along with antiques. The final section of the scroll depicts a portion of Tojin yashiki. We see the arriving transport ships, warehouses, government workers inspecting the arriving goods, laborers carrying goods, etc. This scroll - based on a scroll at the City Museum of Kobe entitled "Nagasaki tokan koeki zukan" - is unfinished in several ways: it has not been fully colored and it is clearly incomplete at the end. Nevertheless, this is a marvelous record of the early trading days in Japan with the outside world. Minor worming carefully repaired, otherwise in fine condition.

Das Lehrbuch, ungewöhnlich für die Zeit, konzentrierte sich ausschließlich auf die Algebra und deckte die Geometrie überhaupt nicht ab. Es befasst sich u.a. mit Arbeiten von Descartes und Euklid. Mit der Veröffentlichung von Elémens wuchs der Ruf von Prestet als Mathematiklehrer. Er wurde 1681 zum mathematischen Lehrstuhl an der Universität von Angers ernannt. Die hier vorliegende 2. Auflage enthält zusätzlich zur ersten noch frühe Arbeiten über den Grundsatz der Arithmetik.

Un mors supérieur fendillé, mais bel exemplaire. Quoique publiés à un an d'intervalle, ces deux titres de Servaes Galle (1627-1709, ministre réformé de Haarlem) vont ordinairement ensemble. Il s'agit d'une nouvelle édition, très savamment commentée, mais généralement hostile, des quatorze prophéties très hétérogènes, d'inspiration juive ou judéo-chrétienne, et réunies sous le titre d'Oracles sibyllins (à ne pas confondre avec les Livres sibyllins de Rome, dont rien n'a été conservé). Circulant depuis le IIIe siècle avant notre ère pour les plus anciennes, ces prophéties jouirent d'une grande faveur parmi les Pères de l'Eglise, qui, négligeant leur origine généralement juive, y voyaient la confirmation que le Messie avait également été annoncé aux païens par le biais d'oracles propres à leur culture. L'ensemble connut une influence majeure sur la théologie et la liturgie médiévales, avant d'être progressivement écarté par les Réformes tant protestante que catholique. La position de Galle est typique de cette nouvelle attitude : il rejette l'authenticité des textes, voire minimise l'approbation patristique Brunet II, 1465 et V, 370. Caillet III, 10179 et 10165. - Cf. Buitenwerf (Rieuwerd) : Book Three of the Sibylline Oracles and Its Social Setting (Leyde, Brill, 2003). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Petty, an economist, scientist and philosopher, is considered the father of laissez-faire economic policy and an important theorist of the division of labor. Originally published in 1662, A Treatise of Taxes and Contributions, addresses the theoretical foundations of value and wages, profit or surplus, interest, the value of land, and foreign exchange. "Written in the midst of urgent practical tasks, the Treatise was plainly occasioned by another question of great immediate importance - the reorganisation of the Revenue by the Restoration Parliament. However, in contrast to the many economic treatises written in defence of concrete interests, while professing to be unbiased theoretical pronouncements, Petty's work is even more remarkable for its theoretical digressions than for its acute and important analysis of its immediate subject. So far from making any claim to scientific detachment, it contains a devastating attack on his betes noires, the parasites on the body politic, primarily the clergy and the lawyers, but its greatest achievement is his searching treatment of the main problems of scientific economics.

The second part, and “An appendix to the marrow of astrology” each has special title-page and separate paging.” â€" Marshall, George J., Angels: An Indexed and Partially Annotated Bibliography of Over 4300 Scholarly Books and Articles Since the 7th Century B.C., 1999, no. 2176, p. 218. Kirby, Richard (1649-1693?), astrologer and medical practitioner, was born on July 13, 1649 of unknown parentage. In an early work he apologized for his mean education. Henry Coley (1633-1704), a close friend, was probably his astrological teacher. His early works, ephemerides for 1681 and 1682 and an almanac for 1684, were uncontroversial but Kirby became notorious in the mid-1680s when he responded to the threat from popery and absolutism at home and the French and Ottomans abroad by predicting sensational changes throughout Europe. His Vates astrologicus (1683), promised the death of Louis XIV, the devastation of France, Italy, and Spain and the overthrow of the papacy, before the rise of a great conqueror in 1699 who would bring peace to the whole world. Many of these prophecies were drawn from John Holwell’s Catastrophe mundi, or from the astrological works of Richard Edlin and William Lilly. Kirby found it expedient to withdraw from London in 1687-8, and was denounced by the tory astrologer John Gadbury in 1688. He was able to speak out freely once more after the revolution of 1688, and published Catastrophe Galliae in 1690, in which he promised the conquest of France and Ireland and a golden age of freedom for Britain, and mocked Gadbury for predicting that the year 1688 would pass uneventfully. In 1681 Kirby was living in Fulham, but he worked from an address in London, advertising his services as teacher and consultant at the sign of the Iron- [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Institutiones grammaticæ Anglo-Saxonicæ, et Moeso-Gothicæ. Grammatica Islandica Runolphi Jonæ. Catalogus librorum septentrionalium. Accedit Eduardi Bernardi Etymologicon Britannicum.

      E Theatro Sheldoniano Typis Junianis 1689 - FIRST EDITION, with an engraving of the Sheldonian Theatre on the additional title-page, one portion rubbed with a little loss to engraved surface, also slightly affected by damp, as are parts of the volume to a fluctuating degree, but never on the really severe side (see below), sectional title to Grammaticæ Islandicæ rudimenta with the date 1688 and a woodcut of the Theatre (pagination discontinuous but the signatures continuous), small hole in 2G3 with the loss of a couple of letters on either side, pp. [xxviii, including imprimatur and additional title with engraving], 114, [6, including blank leaf], 182, [38], 4to, contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked preserving original red lettering piece, a little rubbed with some wear to the corners, small loss of surface to lower cover, early inscription on fly-leaf, and catalogue numbering (old and new) on imprimatur, good. 'Hickes. had access to the newly acquired Junius manuscripts at Oxford and was influenced by Junius's ideas about the history of the Germanic languages. With the encouragement and support of Arthur Charlett, delegate of Oxford University Press, and the scholar John Mill, Hickes's Old English grammar was printed (using Junius's type) and published at Oxford as Institutiones grammaticae Anglo-Saxonicae et Moeso-Goethicae (1689); yet not without Mill's drastic curtailment of Hickes's dedication to the by then suspended Archbishop Sancroft. In the following decade ecclesiastical and scholarly interests were combined and inextricably connected in Hickes's life in a manner characteristic both of antiquarian research in general and of Hickes's methods as one of its leading proponents. Hickes "belonged in a sense to an age earlier than that in which he lived, since his mind, encyclopedic in its range, refused to specialize and so entangled his learning with his life, that it is difficult to regard him solely as an historian or philologist, or solely as a divine" (Douglas, 78) . With the confusion among scholars, clergy, and lawyers attending the unprecedented circumstance after the revolution of both a king de facto (William) and a king de jure (James II), several ideological theories on the settlement and kingship were expounded. Hickes's Institutiones was undertaken as he wrote later 'purely out of zeale to make known the Language, Customes, Laws, and manners of our ancestres, and so to set our English antiquities in a good light' (Harris, Chorus of Grammars, 402). Nevertheless Hickes made a political statement by presenting in the same work a Saxon coronation oath (copied from Bodl. Oxf., Junius MS 60) as historical evidence of divinely ordained kingship that invalidated, in his view, whig historians' arguments about the 'original contract' between the king and his people as a basis of good government, a contract which justified resistance (or even active rebellion) if a king proved to be a tyrant' (ODNB). Hickes's grammar was 'the first major publication to use the Junian types, and included the first (admittedly cursory) printed catalogue of Anglo-Saxon manuscripts' (T. Graham in A Companion to Anglo-Saxon Literature, Blackwell, 2001, p. 428). The damp-staining is confined to certain gatherings only, and those not all contiguous, suggesting that the volume was affected before binding. (Alston iii 6; ESTC R8123)

        Finely illustrated scroll on paper concerning "Nagasaki karafune zukan" ("Picture scroll of Chinese ship and settlement in Nagasaki." Scroll measuring 385 x 3360 mm

      Japan: late Edo. Until the late 17th century, the Chinese had been permitted to move in Japan quite freely for trading purposes. But in 1689, due to the rise of smuggling activities, the Chinese were restricted, like the Dutch, to a compound on the eastern tip of Nagasaki - called the "Tojin yashiki" ("Chinamen's mansions") - surrounded by a moat and walls with gates which could be locked from the outside. Inside were housed on average 2000 Chinese merchants and sailors, along with interpreters, inspectors, and staff. This scroll depicts two large Chinese ships just off Nagasaki surrounded by a number of smaller transport and supply ships. It is clear that these smaller ships are Japanese based on the clothes the crewmen are wearing. The numerous Japanese government officials are dressed in black robes; they are inspecting the arriving goods (sugar, raw silk, and finished fabrics) along with antiques. The final section of the scroll depicts a portion of Tojin yashiki. We see the arriving transport ships, warehouses, government workers inspecting the arriving goods, laborers carrying goods, etc. This scroll - based on a scroll at the City Museum of Kobe entitled "Nagasaki tokan koeki zukan" - is unfinished in several ways: it has not been fully colored and it is clearly incomplete at the end. Nevertheless, this is a marvelous record of the early trading days in Japan with the outside world. Minor worming carefully repaired, otherwise in fine condition.

        The General Exercise Ordered by His Highness the Prince of Orange, to be Punctually Observed of All the Infantry in Service of the States General of the United Provinces being a most worthy compendium, very useful for all persons concerned in that noble exercise of arms

      [S.l.: s.n], 1689. First separate edition (?). 10, [2, blank] pp. A4-B2. 1 vols. Sm. 4to. Disbound, sewing perished, taped at spines with paper adhesive. First separate edition (?). 10, [2, blank] pp. A4-B2. 1 vols. Sm. 4to. William of Orange's Infantry Manual. The text of William III's drill manual for infantry was also included in Plunkett's THE CHARACTER OF A GOOD COMMANDER (L., William Marshall, 1689), with a separate t.p. and pagination (12pp.). This edition, however, would appear to be a different setting of the text (in 10pp); and is possibly the first to be issued separately, as well, as it isn't clear whether the 12pp. setting was ever intended to be issued separately. In either case, it is very rare: only three copies only are located by ESTC (the Folger, NLS and St Andrews). Wing N483B; ESTC R230744
