        Sancto Matrimonii Sacramento Disputationum, Tomi Tres

      Anissoniorum, Lyon 1690 - In Latin. Three books in one volume. Religious text, whose title roughly translates to About the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, Three Books. This work was originally published in separate volumes, starting in 1603, subsequently republished in many formats. The first complete edition, encompassing all three volumes, was published in 1605, and the last was published in 1754. This version published in 1690. Thomas Sanchez was a Jesuit who entered the order in 1567. He was much abused for his works. According to one critic the author's mode of expression shows a not always pleasing verbosity. As the work deals with every possible point in the subject of matrimony, it has often-and quite unjustifiably-drawn upon Sanchez the charge of immorality. To complicate the matter, he was a casuist and so sometimes appeared morally ambiguous, providing his critics more fuel. In actuality he was a very pious man who according to his spiritual director carried his baptismal innocence to the grave. Condition notes: (xx), 500, 404, 408 numbered pp, respectively, plus index; HB. Pages: clean, ivory and foxed, tight, speckled red edgestain, title p in red and black, printed in 2 columns; all edges sunned, a few pp wrinkled. Cover: full leather, 6 raised bands, gilt ornamentation and titles spine; moderate shelfwear, extrems worn, label residue to tail , joints starting to crack but still firm, a few sm holes and surface wear to spine leather, scuffs front and back, with sm area of loss down to board at front bottom edge. Stamp of the library of the Convent of Saint Agatha to title p verso. Inked notations to the title page and the first page of text indicate this volume was located in the convent of de Digoine in the year 1704. In addition, the name Atoine van de Laar of Tilburg (Netherlands) is noted on the title page with the year 1862. This is a large, impressive, and heavy book.

        La Primera Parte Del Nuevo Gran Espejo Maritimo, Alumbrando las Costas Maritimas de la Navigacion de la India Occidental, Empecando de la Costa de Espana Hasta el Rio de Amazonas.

      Jacob Robijn,, Amsterdam, 1690 - Unrecorded Spanish edition of the First Sea Atlas of America Folio (450 by 280mm), title, privilege, [2]p. description of the earth, 67pp., 34 engraved charts (all double-page apart from the chart of Catalina), seventeenth century Spanish pig skin. One of the most important maritime atlases of the Dutch Golden Age. Roggeveen's work is the first maritime atlas of the American coasts, and was based largely on the closely guarded collection of mostly Iberian manuscript nautical charts owned by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and West India Company (WIC). It covers what it calls the West Indies, a term then interpreted much more broadly than today, including not only the entire Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and Central America, but also part of South America and the entire east coast of what is now the United States and southern Canada. Arent Roggeveen (c.1628-1779) was born in Delfshaven, and came to Middelburg as a teacher in 1658. Familiar with mathematics and land-surveying and interested in astronomy, he quickly learned the arts of navigation. Middelburg boasted one of the most important chambers of both the VOC and WIC, therefore many of Roggeveen's students worked in the two companies. Through these connections he apparently gained access to the large collection of mostly Iberian manuscript sea charts that the companies had captured, copied by espionage, or commissioned (some American place names in Roggeveen's atlas still retain their Spanish forms). This collection had been closely guarded as a matter of national security during the Dutch war of independence from Spain. Even after 1648 it was still considered sensitive material, as it gave the Dutch merchants of the VOC and WIC an important commercial advantage. While some atlases largely copied maps from their predecessors, Roggeveen could therefore draw on this cartographic treasure trove to produce more accurate and more detailed sea charts than had ever been published before. The first edition of the atlas was published in 1675 by Pieter Goos, however, due to the death of Goos in the same year, and that of Roggeveen four years later, a second edition would not be published until 1680, by which time the plates had been acquired by the chart dealer Jacobus Robijn. Robijn went on to republish the second edition in 1689, with a third edition appearing in 1698. As well as Dutch the pilot also appeared with English, French, and - as with the present edition - Spanish text. We are unable to trace an institutional example of this edition. Koeman records six institutional examples of the 1680 Spanish edition. The charts and text would appear to be unchanged from the 1680 edition: with all the charts in their first state; the chart of Catalina is in its proof state; chart No. 7 bears revision to Curaçao plate; whilst the chart of Curaçao [No.7 1/2] bears no number. The only revision to the 1680 edition is the inclusion of a new title-page and privilege in which Roggeveen's name has been omitted and Jacob Robijn inserted in its place. c.f. Koeman Rog 10 for 1680 edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Mariner's Chest]

      c1690]., [Spain, 1690 - A mariner's chest decorated with manuscript maps on vellum Wooden chest, clad in vellum manuscript maps, with wrought iron handles, rivets, lock and clasp. A very unusual piece of cartographic history. It was common for seafarers to have sturdy wooden chests for storage whilst on a voyage, but the owner of this chest chose to have it covered it with manuscript maps drawn on vellum, possibly by their own hand, with the decorative ironwork fitted on top. The lid is covered with a map of North and Central America, with the Darien Isthmus labelled to the south, and decorated with an elaborate compass rose and title cartouche supported by figures of Native Americans. The map on the front is decorated with a title cartouche showing a sea god. The sides are covered with maps of the East and West Indies, dotted with ships. It is remarkable that the maps have survived given the treatment they would have encountered at sea. 740 by 320 by 420mm (29.25 by 12.5 by 16.5 inches).

        La filosofia overo il perch‚ degli scacchi per cui chiaramente si mostra prima l'artificio della fabrica universale, poscia la ragion particolare della ordinanza, & degli andamenti tutti degli scacchi: trattato non tanto per lo gradevole scherzo, quanto per la riposta contezza delle cose pregiato. (UNITO:) Dell'antica Pettia, overo che Palamede non Š stato l'inventor degli scacchi. - Napoli, a spese di Antonio Bulifon, 1690.

      Napoli, Antonio Bulifon, 1690. Due opere in un volume in-4°; antiporta con ritratto dell'autore inciso in rame da Andrea Magliar, frontespizio con vignetta, 2 cc., 120 pp., a pagina 14 incisione in rame a piena pagina con scacchiera - 6 cc., 82 (i.e. 64) pp. Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso (piccoli difetti al dorso, orlo del piatto posteriore un poco usurato). Segnetto di tarlo sapientemente restaurato al margine superiore e inferiore bianco di poche carte centrali, trascurabili aloni e tracce d'uso alle prime e ultime carte. Buon esemplare genuino. Prima edizione, postuma, di entrambe le opere. L'autore, medico e affermato chirurgo (Tarsia 1580 - Napoli 1656), scrisse questi due importanti trattati sugli scacchi e, contro l'opinione corrente, sostenne che né il gioco greco della pettìa né quello romano dei latruncoli avevano niente a che fare con gli scacchi. La prima opera è introdotta dal bel ritratto dell'autore e corredata, a p. 14, dalla fine incisione a piena pagina che raffigura una scacchiera per il Giuoco Pitagorico chiamato Ritmomachia. Chicco-Sanvito 805-806. Sanvito, 237-238. Gay, p. 200. Vinciana 159.

      Amsterdam, Pieter Blaeu, and Joan Blaeu 1690 - (engraved titlepage) n.p., (engraved titlepage) n.p. Contemporary Tortoiseshell binding with 2 silver clasps and 4 silver hinges, gilt-edged and gauffred text block, 8° (Some small pieces chipped off the binding. Dutch church book in the French language containing the Geneva version of the New Testament, followed by the Psalms -with musical notation- of Clement Marot en Theodorus Beza, and the Forms. Attractive binding bound in black with ochre coloured flamed tortoiseshell with silver double clasp and 4 hinges. The clasps have straight catches but both the hasps and joints on the spine have an identically cut out pattern. The use of tortoiseshell as a book binding material became populair in the 17th and 18th century and was mostly used for binding religious texts, small Bibles, prayer books, and gift books for the wealthy middle class. The material came from exotic marine turtles and was valued due to its beauty, shine and rarity. -the name tortoiseshell can therefore be misleading because the material has nothing to do with land tortoises-. Fewer than 4 percent of the luxury bindings made in the Netherlands in the 18th century was covered in materials other than leather and vellum. These bindings were regarded as richer and were more expensive. This is considered even more for tortoise shells since the shells were not imported in large amounts, due to this the material remained expensive and only available for the rich.)

Het materiaal werd verkregen van uitheemse zeeschildpadden en was geliefd vanwege het uiterlijk, de glans, en de zeldzaamheid. Minder dan 4 procent van de luxere banden die in Nederland werden gebonden in de 18e eeuw werd in ander materiaal dan leer en perkament gebonden. Deze banden werden gezien als luxer en waren duurder.

Berühmtes Lehrbuch zu den Pandekten, das einer ganzen Epoche den Namen gab! - Das berühmteste Werk des großen Juristen der Epoche des usus modernus pandectarum, das zuerst in den Jahren 1690 bis 1712 erschienen war. Das Werk ist nach der Legalordnung der Justinianischen Digesten gearbeitet, also in der Ordnung der 50 Bücher der Digesten. Es galt die Rechtsdogmatik des Ius Romanum im damals geltenden Recht herauszuarbeiten. Die Rechtsquellendarstellung war im Prinzip rechtsvergleichende Arbeit. Aber auch die Frage der Rechtsgeltung bei verschiedenen Rechtsquellen, also die Kollision der Gesetze, war Gegenstand der Arbeit. Nach dem damaligen Kenntnisstand wird diese Frage an die Statutentheorie gerichtet: Quando praefareantur Juris Romani. In seiner einleitenden Abhandlung: De Usu et Auctoritate Juris Romani in Fori Germaniae, die dem Band 1 und der Erörterung der ersten Lex der Digesten vorangestellt ist, bildet diese Problematik den roten Faden, der sich dann durch die ganze Abhandlung zieht. In § XXXII stellt Stryk die Frage: An vero Jure Saxonum disciente recurrundum ad Jus Commune Romanum? Das Werk entstand aus Disputationen unter der Führung von Stryk, die er zunächst in Frankfurt an der Oder (liber I-V), später in Halle abhielt. Diese konzentrierte er auf die rechtsdogmatischen Probleme seiner Zeit, reihte sie in der Ordnung der Pandekten aneinander und ließ so einen umfassenden „Kettenkommentar\" entstehen. Stryks Ziel war es, aus dem Ius Romanum und seiner Rezeption im Rahmen der einheimischen Rechtsquellen das herauszuarbeiten, was im 19. Jahrhundert als das „heute geltende römische Recht\" und von Stryk als der zeitgemäße Gebrauch des Pandektenrechts bezeichnet wurde. - Stryk (1640-1710), der zuerst in Wittenberg, dann bei seinem späteren Schwiegervater Brunnemann in Frankfurt an der Oder studierte, wurde dort 1668 Professor für Institutionen, 1672 als Nachfolger Brunnemanns. 1690 folgte er einem Ruf nach Wittenberg, schließlich wechselte er 1692 an die neugeschaffene Universität Halle, wo er Direktor und Professor primarius wurde. Stryk war der berühmteste Jurist des ausgehenden 17. und beginnenden 18. Jahrhunderts. Mit dem vorliegenden Werk beeinflusste er nachhaltig über viele Dekaden hinweg die Entwicklung des Privatrechts. - Vgl. auch Stintzing/L. III, 43ff. Versand D: 2,00 EUR 1.1.1.2.

      Rome: Dominico de Rossi, Jo. Jacobi (Jo. Jacobi de Rubeis), circa 1690. Oblong folio. 45.5 x 69 cm. (17.75 x 27.25 inches) page size. Suite of 16 numbered engravings. Housed in a custom portfolio with painted boards, leather spine, large embossed leather label, leather ties and leather corners by the celebrated Russian-American binder Alexandr (Sasha) Mosalov. OCLC Number: 27358448 Pietro da Cortona (1 November 1596/7 - 16 May 1669) was born Pietro Berrettini, but is primarily known by the name of his native town of Cortona in Tuscany. Carlo Cesio or Carlo Cesi (1622-1682) was a painter and engraver of the Roman school. Cesio was born at Androdoco, in the Roman States, in 1622. The ceiling of the Galleria Pamphilj was painted by Pietro da Cortona with the Legend of Aeneas in 1651-54. After the mid-seventeenth century it became the new pattern for palace galleries, not only in Italy but also in Paris, where in 1704-07 a gallery was appended to the Palais Royal and painted with the same subject matter by Antoine Coypel. The form and iconography of the Galleria Pamphilj continued to be major influences well into the eighteenth century - even on the work of artists with no direct contacts with Rome, e.g. on Lorenzo de' Ferrari in Genoa. Some foxing.

        Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams...

      Amsterdam: By de weduwe van Joannes van Someren, de erfgenaamen van Joannes van Dyk, Hendrik en de weduwe van Dirk Boom, 1690. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. Broadside, 305 x 470 (visible image size), professionally matted and framed An extraordinary 17th-century anatomical engraving, justly celebrated by anatomists and artists alike for over 300 years; the Surrealists found it particularly fascinating. "This stark dissection -- with ragged flesh fully displayed and hands bound with a cord -- signals a commitment to a higher level of realism. To our eyes, the picture may suggest a distressing indifference to, or even pleasure in, human suffering" (Dream Anatomy, National Library of Medicine, 2003). "Govard Bidloo was born in Amsterdam in 1649 and became professor of anatomy at The Hague from 1688 to 1694, when he took the same position at Leyden. He was later appointed the physician of William III of England, who was originally Dutch, until the King's death in 1702. In that year, Bidloo returned to Leyden to take his old position until his death there in 1713. "Best known as an anatomist, Govard Bidloo's most famous work was his monumental Anatomia humani corporis published in Amsterdam in 1685, containing 107 copperplate engravings. Like so many large and expensive anatomical atlases of the time, the work was not a financial success, and in 1690 he published a Dutch translation entitled, Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams, using the same plates. The illustrations in Bidloos' work were drawn by Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711) and engraved by Abraham Blooteling (1640-1690) and Peter van Gunst (1659?-1724?)" -- source: National Library of Medicine, Historical Anatomies on the Web.

        Traite de la lumiere. Ou sont expliquees les causes de ce qui arrive dans la reflexion, & dans la refraction. . . Avec un discours de la cause de la pesanteur.

Text little browned, marginal light dust soiling, first four leaves with just a few mm of light dampstaining at top edge, very minor occasional spotting, a few short tears not affecting text. Beside the rebacking a fine, unsophisticated, wide-margined and unmarked copy. ----Dibner 145; Horblit 54; Norman 1139; Sparrow 111; Evans 32; D.S.B. VI, p.609-10; En francais dans le texte 25. FIRST EDITION of Huygens' pathbreaking exposition of his wave theory of light. Huygens had developed his theory in 1676 and 1677, and completed his Traite de la lumière in 1678. He read portions of the treatise to the Academy during the following year but left it unpublished, until Newton's Principia (1687) and a visit with Newton in 1689 stimulated him to have it printed at last. "Light, according to Huygens, is an irregular series of shock waves which proceeds with very great, but finite, velocity through the ether. This ether consists of uniformly minute, elastic particles compressed very close together. Light, therefore, is not an actual transference of matter but rather of a 'tendency to move,' a serial displacement similar to a collision which proceeds through a row of balls [...] Huygens therefore concluded that new wave fronts originate around each particle that is touched by light and extend outward from the particle in the form of hemispheres." (D.S.B.). Huygens was able to explain reflection and refraction using this theory, of which he became completely convinced in August 6, 1677, when he found that it explained the double refraction in Iceland spar. His view of light was opposed to the corpuscular theory of light advanced by Newton. In the second part of the work, the Discours de la cause de la pesanteur, written in 1669, Huygens expounded his vortex theory of gravity, a purely mechanistic theory that also contrasted markedly with Newton's notion of a universal attractional force intrinsic to matter. Indeed, Huygens added to the original treatise of 1669 a review of Newton's theory, rejecting it out of hand because of the impossibility of explaining it by any mechanical principle or law of motion. Huygens' work fell into oblivion during the following century, but his theory of light was confirmed at the beginning of the 19th century by Thomas Young, who used it to explain optical interference, and by Augustin-Jean Fresnel a few years later. Modern physics has reconciled Newton's and Huygens' theories in discerning both corpuscular and wave characteristics in the properties of light. There are two states of the two title leaves known. Our copy is with the author's initials only on both titles (no priority established). Very Good.

        A narrative of occurrences that took place during the mutiny at the Nore, in the months of May and June, 1797.Chatham, William Burrill, 1829. 8vo. With the errata slip inserted between the introduction and main text. Contemporary boards.

      - Cat. Nat. Mar. Mus. V, 1690; cf. Dougall, "The east coast mutinies: May-June 1797", in: The naval mutinies of 1797, pp. 147-160; for the author: Laughton & Lambert, "Cunningham, Sir Charles (1755-1834)", in: ODNB (online ed.). First edition of a rare and detailed account of the historic mutiny at the Nore (in the Thames Estuary) in 1797, involving several ships of the Royal Navy. The errata slip notes, "A few copies only of this narrative are printed for the particular friends of the author." The revolt closely followed a more peaceful mutiny at Spithead earlier that year and ended with the conviction and subsequent executions of 29 leaders. The demands of the mutineers included more shore leave, a more equal distribution of prize money and several changes to the Articles of War. The Admiralty, however, didn't accede to the demands and the prime minister eventually outlawed the mutineers. Richard Parker, elected president of the delegates of the fleet, was court-martialed and hanged aboard the 90-gun Sandwich, the ship where the mutiny had started. Parker's trial was followed by the hanging of 28 other mutineers.The author, Charles Cunningham (1755-1834), was commander of the frigate Clyde. He was refitting at the Nore in May 1797 when the mutiny broke out. A respected captain, he managed to suppress the mutiny on his ship after 17 days.With the armorial bookplate of John Gretton, Stapleford, 1st Baron Gretton (1867- 1947), on the front paste-down, and an 1849 newspaper clipping about prize money for the officers and crew of 2 ships, tipped onto p. 24. An owner has corrected the text in manuscript in accordance with the errata slip. In good condition, with the spine and joints neatly repaired and the hinges reinforced.
