        Die Bezauberte Welt: Oder eine gründliche Untersuchung des Allgemeinen Aberglaubens, Betreffend die Arth und das Vermögen, Gewalt und Wirckung des Satans und der bösen Geister über den Menschen. Aus dem Holländ. (übs. von J. Lange).

      Amsterdam, van Dahlen (d. i. Hamburg, Hertel), 1693. 4 Tle. in 1 Band. Mit kleinem Holzschnitt-Portrait auf dem Titel und 1 Kupfertafel. 39, 136 (recte 144) S.; 270 S.; 1 Bl., 179 (recte 195) S., 1 Bl.; 308 S., 2 Bll. Prgt. d. Zt. 4°.

Caillet 915, Norman 162 und Rosenthal, Bibl. mag., 2872/73 (nur holländ. bzw. französ. Ausgaben). - Erste deutsche Ausgabe und eines der bedeutendsten Werke gegen alle Arten von Aberglauben, Hexenwahn und Zauberei. \"B. bestritt nicht nur den Glauben an die ... dämonischen Mächte, an Teufelsbesitzungen, Zauberei, Magie usw., sondern suchte auch die biblischen Erzählungen von Besessenen natürlich zu erklären und die Existenz des Teufels überhaupt in Frage zu stellen ...\" (Hagenbach-Rogge in: Wetzer-Welte II, 545-46). \"Bekkers frührationalistische, auf Descartes\' Philosophie basierende Streitschrift wendet sich als eines der ethisch und geistesgeschichtlich wertvollsten Werke der wissenschaftlichen Barockliteratur gegen jede Art von Aberglauben seiner Zeit ... (und) gehört zu jenen seltenen Werken, welche die Entwicklung des menschlichen Denkens um einen bedeutsamen Schritt vorwärts gebracht haben, und zwar auf Kosten des Autors: Die Publikation ... brachte Bekker um sein Amt als Pfarrer und um sein akademisches Ansehen\" (Kindler II, 423 f.) Besonders interessant ist der 4. Teil, der einen Katalog ausgewählter Erscheinungen, Tricks und Zaubereien enthält, wobei jeweils der Nachweis des Betruges geführt wird. - Die Kupfertafel zeigt das sogenannte \"Oldenburgische Horn\", das vor allem bekannt ist durch seine Wiederverwendung in Arnims und Brentanos \"Knaben Wunderhorn\". - Einband etwas altersfleckig. Wenig gebräunt, die Tafel stärker. Insgesamt recht gutes Exemplar! Versand D: 5,00 EUR

The Osgood Mills in Salisbury, 1693. William Osgood of Shipton, England was a Pilgrim who arrived in America at the age of 29, in 1638, settling at first in Newbury, then finally settllng in the new community of Salisbury, along the Powow River, in 1641. "He was granted a 'goodly' piece of land on the east side of the Powow River. The Town granted him this land on the proviso that he construct a saw mill within six months 'that may be sufficient for the use of the Town.' He completed this mill which became only the second such mill in New England. He later constructed a grist mill along the Powow River ... William prospered in the mill business and his descendents tended to cluster in the Salisbury/Amesbury area to be around the business of the "Osgood Mills." Because of its location along the Powow River, Salisbury became an important source of lumber for the shipbuilding industry, and the Osgoods prospered.(cf. "Osgood Ancestry" at www.osgoodancestry.org/emigrants) Here, in his old age, Osgood begins to divest his holdings: "Know ye that I, William Osgood, for and in consideration of the Sum of Ten Pounds ... fully clearly & absolutely give grant bargain sell ... to them one quarter part apiece of all my rights & Interest of the waters water courses privileges ... that I now have outright or could have upon the Northern side of the Potow River at the falls there or below the falls & below the Sawmill now standing upon Salsbury ... " A fascinating glimpse into the business history of colonial Massachusetts.

        Life of Dom John de Castro

      1693 - (INDIA) ANDRADA, Jacinto Freire de. The Life of Dom John de Castro, the Fourth Vice-Roy of India… Translated into English by Sir Peter Wyche, Knight. London: Henry Herringman, 1693. Small folio, early full dark brown speckled calf neatly rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $4500.Expanded second edition of Andrada’s life of the Viceroy of India, João de Castroâ€"dubbed “Castro Forte” by Camões in the Lusiadsâ€"with frontispiece portrait Faithorne and two copper-engraved plates, one folding. A fine copy.In 1545 João de Castro was sent to the Indies. “The next three years were the hardest and most brilliant, as they were the last, of his lifeâ€"years of battle and struggle, of glory and sorrow, of suffering and triumph. Valiantly seconded by his sons (one of whom, Fernão, was killed before Diu)… de Castro achieved such popularity by the overthrow of Mahmud, king of Gujarat, by the relief of Diu, and by the defeat of the great army of the Adil Khan, that he could contract a very large loan with the Goa merchants on the simple security of his moustache. These great deeds were followed by the capture of Broach, bu the complete subjugation of Malacca, and by the passage of Antonio Moniz into Ceylon; and in 1547 the great captain was appointed viceroy by João III” (Britannica, 11th ed.). Andrada’s account, translated admirably by Sir Peter Wyche, eldest son of the English ambassador at Oporto, details the Portuguese discovery, exploration, conquest and control of territories in East India and the Spice Islands, and the conquerors’ continuing efforts to secure their trade routes. First published in Portuguese in 1651; Wyche’s English translation first appeared in 1664. Wing F2156. Engraved bookplate and shelf label.Neat repair to verso of folding plate.

        Veterum mathematicorum Athenaei, Apollodori, Philonis, Bitonis, Heronis et aliorum opera, graece et latine pleraque nunc primum edita: ex manuscriptis codicibus Bibliothecae Regiae. [Edited by M. Thévenot, J. Boivin, and P. de La Hire].

      Typographia Regia 1693 - text in double columns, Greek or parallel Greek and Latin, many engraved diagrams and illustrations in the text, engraved head- and tail-pieces, some damp-staining in the lower margins, a few spots, first and last leaves foxed, puncture to last gathering with the loss of a few letters, pp. xvi (including half-title), 279, 290-365, [9, Index + colophon], folio (435 x 285mm), early 18th-century English Russia, double gilt fillets to sides, inner blind roll tooled panel within triple gilt fillets, 'hedgehog' corner ornaments, spine gilt in compartments, lettered in gilt, spine and joints rubbed, split at foot of upper joint, corners a little worn, the Macclesfield copy with bookplate and blind-stamps, good. This collection of early Greek writings in hydrostatics and mechanics contains the first Greek edition of Hero's Pneumatica and Automata, and the first edition of Biton in Greek and Latin. This is one of three early publications of French Academy of Sciences, grouped together as Dibner 84. 'Printed at the royal press in small editions they were intended as gifts of the King and Academy. In size, binding [the Norman copy was in contemporary calf with the arms of Louis XIV blocked in gilt on the covers] and beauty of the plates, they are among the most sumptuous books in science' (Dibner). An imposing folio, and rather scarce. There have been only 8 copies at auction in the last 40 years, whose provenance is a roll-call of the 20th century's most notable collectors of scientific books: Honeyman (2 copies, Jean Boivin's, and the Marquess of Bute's), Stanitz, Norman (our copy is 13mm taller than the Norman copy), Boas Hall. The Evelyn copy was sold at Christie's in 1977. (Dibner 84; NormaN 2148)

        1693 VITAE PAPARUM AVENIONENSIUM Ecclesiastical History VELLUM Stephanus Baluzius (Étienne Baluze)

      Apud Franciscum Muguet Regis, Cleri Gallicani: Paris, France, 1693. VITAE PAPARUM AVENIONENSIUM: Hoc Est HISTORIA PONTIFICUM ROMANORUM Qui in Gallia Sederunt AB Anno Christi MCCCV Usque Ad Annum MCCCXCIV. By STEPHANUS BALUZIUS (Étienne Baluze). TOMUS PRIMUS / TOMI PRIMI (Tome One). VELLUM BOUND Ecclesiastical Papal History. VERY SCARCE 1693 FIRST EDITION. PARISIIS (Paris) : Apud Franciscum Muguet Regis, Cleri Gallicani. MDCXCIII (1693). First Edition. The book was reprinted, most notably in 1916 and 1928. Those later editions can be found, but the 1693 first edition is almost impossible to find outside of a few Rare Book Rooms of Major Universities and National Libraries. Vellum Covers, manuscript titling on the spine, 8" x 10". Pagination: [1 leaf] front free endpaper, [1] title page, [1] blank verso, [4] Epistola, [16] Prefatio, [1] blank, [1] PLATE of PAPAL COINAGE, 1,478 numbered columns / 739 pages (text pages numbered by column only, two columns per page), [30] Index and Errata. Collated page for page with the 1693 First Edition Copy in the Rare Book Holdings of the Montserrat Abbey Library. That copy was digitized in 2011. There is a label size bookplate of Jacobi Manzoni at the upper corner of the front pastedown. Jacobi Manzoni / Giacomo Manzoni, was an important Italian book collector. Manzoni was born in 1816 in Lugo, Romagna, into an aristocratic family. He was involved in many aspects of Italian life, but his main pursuit, which he began at a very early age, was collecting books and manuscripts. At the time of his death in 1889, he left a library of approximately 25,000 rare and highly valued volumes. This is one of those volumes. Condition: The Vellum Covers have yellowed and toned, the spine has substantially darkened, there is some peeling and cracking to the covers' edges and 2" of splitting at the top and bottom of the spine folds, the edges and spine ends are shelf worn and rubbed through at places, nonetheless the covers are solid, doing their job well, and attractive in a Harry Potter's Hogwarts Library way. There is a bit of writing on the endpapers, a small bookplate to the front pastedown (as noted above) and a small label with numbers to the rear pastedown; the front free endpaper is creased, the title page has some edge wear and small edge chips, there is light toning and foxing throughout, overall the inner pages are very nice - tight, bright, clean, and unmarked.

        RECUEIL DES TRAITEZ DE PAIX, DE TREVE, DE NEUTRALITE, DE CONFEDERATION, D'ALLIANCE, ET DE COMMERCE, FAITS PAR LES ROIS DE FRANCE, AVEC TOUS LES PRINCES, ET POTENTATS DE L'EUROPE, ET AUTRES, DEPUIS PRES DE TROIS SIECLES

      Paris, 1693. Quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco labels. Old small library stamp on titlepages. Scattered light tanning and an occasional fox mark, small bit of worming in lower margin of some leaves in second and third volumes, else internally clean. A very good set. This massive compilation is the first major collection of French treaties, beginning in 1435 and running to 1692, including many treaties relating to America. Many important French state papers appeared here for the first time, especially ones from the 15th and 16th centuries. It was not until the early 17th century that published versions of treaties began to appear simultaneously with the event, and even then treaties between kings were often secret, or contained secret sections, for decades. Thus, the Leonard set offers either first or very early printings of many documents of the greatest importance, including a number that are important for the Americas. The NUC entry for this work describes it in six volumes and locates five sets. Sabin states the work consists of six regular volumes plus two additional volumes of twenty- nine treaties with separate titlepages for each, covering treaties from 1697 to 1719. This set includes the original six volumes published in 1693, and is complete in and of itself. Frances Davenport identifies eleven treaties for which the Leonard set provides the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follows: 1) Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the Spanish agreed to leave alone French fisheries off the North American coast. 2) Davenport 22. Treaty between France and Spain, 1585. A similar agreement to keep France out of the Indies. 3) Davenport 26. Treaty between France and England, 1603. This treaty was made while England and Spain were still at war, and arranged for the French and British to take concerted action, with England raising a fleet to attack the Spanish New World dominions. It became a dead letter when James I made peace with Spain the next year. 4) Davenport 29. A defensive alliance between the Netherlands, France and England, in which the latter two agreed not to interfere with Dutch trade in the New World. 5) Davenport 32. Treaty between the Netherlands and France, agreeing not to interfere with each other's trade in the New World. 6) Davenport 34. Treaty between England and France settling the brief war between the powers of 1627-28. In this war the British had seized much of New France, including Quebec, which was restored with the peace. 7) Davenport 36. Treaty between Great Britain and France (St. Germain-en-laye). This treaty followed up Davenport 34, above, and called for the specific restoration of all of Canada; England gave up Nova Scotia reluctantly, and only in the face of French naval superiority. 8) Davenport 37. Treaty between France and Portugal, 1641. Portugal, having won independence back from Spain, agrees to cooperate with the French and Dutch against Spain in the New World. 9) Davenport 68. Agreement between Spain and the Netherlands, made by Spain in an attempt to defend its New World possessions. 10) Davenport 73. Cessation of hostilities in America between France and Sweden on one hand, and Denmark and Brandenburg on the other, 1679. This war had involved battles between the West Indian possessions of all powers, and restored the status quo while allowing free trade in West Indian ports. 11) Davenport 77. Treaty between Spain and France, 1684 (Ratisbon). This treaty supposedly brought peace between the Spanish and French throughout the world, but was really a screen by Louis XIV for his incursions on Spanish dominions in the New World. Immediately after it he authorized La Salle to start his colony on the Gulf of Mexico, and attempted to seize northern New Spain. A most important collection.

        Trinum Marinum: oder: Die an einander hangende Drey Meer Pontus Euxinus, Propontis, cum Archipelago: oder: Das Schwartze, Weisse, und Egeische Meer.

      Augsburg, Anton Nepperschmid for Jakob Enderlin, 1693. - Folio (305 x 190 mm). (2), 61, (1) pp. Title page printed in red and black. With 11 (instead of 18?) plates containing 22 copper engravings. Modern boards. Fascinating, little-received geographical study focusing on the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, then under Ottoman rule. The anonymous late 17th-century German author hides behind the name of "Philo Cosmographus" and is evidently identical with the "Philo Chronographus" who produced the similarly themed chronographical work, "Arca Temporum", which was often issued together with this, though produced by a different publisher and catalogued separately. The present work features an overview of the geography of the Ottoman Empire, including the Aegean, the Sea of Marmara, and the Black Sea region - the "three seas" to which the title refers. Numerous pages of plates (each page containing two copper engravings) depict maps and views as well as animals (a hyena and sheep, Iraklion and Chania, Nauplia, Koroni, Rhodes, Thessaloniki, Belgrade, Izmir, etc.). - The number of plates, and indeed even the arrangement of engravings on a single page, varies from copy to copy, but this wants 8 plates as compared to the table of plates provided in "Arca Temporum". Occasional inkstains, but well-preserved. VD 17, 7:688727L; 3:605737C. Weller, Pseud. 439. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Arca Temporum Mundi Reserata, Oder: Der Welt eröffnete Zeit- und Geschicht-Beschreibung. Begreiffend: Perspeculatum [.].

      Augsburg, Jakob Koppmayer for Jakob Enderlin, 1693. - Folio (305 x 190 mm). 2 parts in 1 volume. (4), 31, (1), 64 pp. With 12 (instead of 16) plates containing 24 copper engravings. Modern boards. Fascinating, little-received chronographical study focusing on the history of the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, then under Ottoman rule. The anonymous late 17th-century German author hides behind the name of "Philo Chronographus" and is evidently identical with the "Philo Cosmographus" who produced the similarly themed geographical work, "Trinum Marinum", which is announced on the title page and was often issued together with this, though produced by a different publisher and catalogued separately. The first part of the work contains a general introduction which relates the 24 hours of the day to the time from Creation to the year 1800 (which is conceived of as the end of the world, leaving another mere 107 years of history to come!). The second part features a chronicle of the "Rule of the Ottoman Porte", from Sultan Osman to Suleyman II. - Numerous pages of plates (each page containing two copper engravings) depict costumes, animals and plants, maps and views of towns (Sultan Osman, the Ottoman Residence and a view of Constantinople, dolphins and cranes, Turkish ladies in their various garments, a cypress and a mastix tree, etc.). - The number of plates, and indeed even the arrangement of engravings on a single page, varies from copy to copy, but this wants 4 plates as compared to the table of plates.

It is also notable as an early treatise on the law of corporations. Loseo published his book during a particularly tense period for the universities of Europe. As centers of theology, law and the civil service, they had been coping with the effects of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation for nearly two decades. A longer work than its predecessors, the text of the fourth edition is enriched with decisions and opinions. All editions are scarce. OCLC locates 3 copies of the first edition in North America (at Harvard Law School, the University of Chicago and Yale), none of the fourth edition.

At the suggestion of Meric Casaubon he acquired a knowledge of Anglo-Saxon, and then wrote Observations on the Laws of King Henry I, published by Roger Twysden in 1644, with a new glossary.

        A Map of Essex, newly revised & Amended by P. Lea

      1693 - London: Philip Lea, c.1693. Coloured. 415 x 525mm. Narrow margins, extra margin added at top. Philip Lea's uncommon re-issue of the Saxton map of Essex, the first printed map of the county, engraved in 1576. When Lea first published his edition of Saxton's atlas c.1689 this map was not included, replaced by the Ogilby-Morgan map of 1676. Either the Saxton map was not available or needed too much updating. The additions here are considerable: the title is now in English rather than Latin; a plan of Colchester has been added, surrounded by eight armorials; Ogilby's roads are shown; and thew initials W R have been added by the Royal Arms, for William III.

        1693 VITAE PAPARUM AVENIONENSIUM Ecclesiastical History VELLUM Stephanus Baluzius (Étienne Baluze)

      Paris, France: Apud Franciscum Muguet Regis, Cleri Gallicani, 1693. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Good. VITAE PAPARUM AVENIONENSIUM: Hoc Est HISTORIA PONTIFICUM ROMANORUM Qui in Gallia Sederunt AB Anno Christi MCCCV Usque Ad Annum MCCCXCIV. By STEPHANUS BALUZIUS (Étienne Baluze). TOMUS PRIMUS / TOMI PRIMI (Tome One). VELLUM BOUND Ecclesiastical Papal History. VERY SCARCE 1693 FIRST EDITION. PARISIIS (Paris) : Apud Franciscum Muguet Regis, Cleri Gallicani. MDCXCIII (1693). First Edition. The book was reprinted, most notably in 1916 and 1928. Those later editions can be found, but the 1693 first edition is almost impossible to find outside of a few Rare Book Rooms of Major Universities and National Libraries. Vellum Covers, manuscript titling on the spine, 8" x 10". Pagination: [1 leaf] front free endpaper, [1] title page, [1] blank verso, [4] Epistola, [16] Prefatio, [1] blank, [1] PLATE of PAPAL COINAGE, 1,478 numbered columns / 739 pages (text pages numbered by column only, two columns per page), [30] Index and Errata. Collated page for page with the 1693 First Edition Copy in the Rare Book Holdings of the Montserrat Abbey Library. That copy was digitized in 2011. There is a label size bookplate of Jacobi Manzoni at the upper corner of the front pastedown. Jacobi Manzoni / Giacomo Manzoni, was an important Italian book collector. Manzoni was born in 1816 in Lugo, Romagna, into an aristocratic family. He was involved in many aspects of Italian life, but his main pursuit, which he began at a very early age, was collecting books and manuscripts. At the time of his death in 1889, he left a library of approximately 25,000 rare and highly valued volumes. This is one of those volumes. Condition: The Vellum Covers have yellowed and toned, the spine has substantially darkened, there is some peeling and cracking to the covers' edges and 2" of splitting at the top and bottom of the spine folds, the edges and spine ends are shelf worn and rubbed through at places, nonetheless the covers are solid, doing their job well, and attractive in a Harry Potter's Hogwarts Library way. There is a bit of writing on the endpapers, a small bookplate to the front pastedown (as noted above) and a small label with numbers to the rear pastedown; the front free endpaper is creased, the title page has some edge wear and small edge chips, there is light toning and foxing throughout, overall the inner pages are very nice - tight, bright, clean, and unmarked.

        NOTIZIE ISTORICHE DELLE CHIESE FIORENTINE. Divise ne' suoi Quartieri, Opera di Giuseppe Richa della Compagnia di Gesù.

      Nella Stamperia di Pietro Gaetano Viviani in Via de' Servi, all'Insegna di GianoPrima edizione. Opera completa in dieci volumi. Cm.27x19,5. Pg.3804 complessive. Legature coeve in cartoncino semirigido, con titoli manoscritti ai dorso. Esemplari in barbe. Opera adorna da 40 tavole incise fuori testo, principalmente in grande formato, raffiguranti vedute e scorci della città e particolari artistici. Le tavole sono incise da Vincenzo Tarchi, J, Verkruysse, A.L. Galassi, Andrea Scacciati, etc. Figure calcografiche nel testo, capilettera e cartigli ornamentali incisi. All'antiporta del primo volume ritratto dell'Autore inciso in ovale da Francesco Allegrini su bozzetto di Giuseppe Zocchi. L'Opera tratta, con dovizia di particolari, degli edifici religiosi fiorentini, suddivisi nei quattro principali quartieri: Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella, San Giovanni e Santo Spirito. Il decimo volume uscì postumo. Il padre Giuseppe Richa (Torino, 1693 ?" Firenze, 1761) studiò nel Collegio Cicognini a Prato sotto i padri gesuiti, ordine cui si ascrisse nel 1747. Trasferitosi a Firenze tenne orazioni nella chiesa di San Giovannino della Congregazione di Santa Maria Maddalena penitente. La presente, monumentale, è frutto di approfondite ricerche. "Si tratta una ricostruzione storica e di una puntuale descrizione dello stato degli edifici sacri e dei loro possedimenti, anche artistici, all'epoca, estremamente preziosa per risalire alle origini di tanto patrimonio fiorentino alla vigilia delle dispersioni che seguirono le soppressioni monastiche. In gran parte si basò sulla lettura dell'opera in gran parte inedita di Ferdinando Leopoldo Del Migliore, composta di ben 120 spogli sulla storia fiorentina conservati nella Biblioteca Magliabechiana di Firenze, che Richa arricchì con ricerche in archivi pubblici e privati e con sopralluoghi appositamente programmati. L'idea della pubblicazione era nata grazie al sostegno di un pubblico ampio e colto che affollava San Giovannino, tra cui spiccò Ignazio Orsini, che si assunse l'onere delle spese tipografiche. Richa fu socio dal 1754 dell'Accademia fiorentina e della Società Colombaria (per la quale scelse il nome di "Agguagliato"), che sostennero il suo progetto (da wikipedia)". > Moreni, II, 249, "Vi sono degli sbaglj, pur non ostante nulla di meglio si avea in stampa prima, che comparissero queste Lezioni [...].

        Vida admirable y prodigiosas virtudes del venerable y apostolico padre Francisco del Castillo de la Compañia de Jesus, natural de Lima, ciudad de Los Reyes en la provincia del Perù

      Madrid: Antonio Roman 4to. [16] ff., 666 pp., [1] f. (without the portrait).. 1693 Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615?-73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery. Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru. => The present biography is by a fellow Jesuit who knew Castillo. NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library show two U.S. library copies, plus one in Scotland, one in Mexico, six in Spain, and one in Chile. Provenance: On title-page, old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit colegio. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of button and loop ties, lacking the portrait. Front free endpaper with faint old pencilled notes, rear pastedown missing exposing lining, all edges red. A few short marginal tears or paper flaws, and one lower corner lost touching text (taking a bit of print but not sense); in all, a very good, clean, untattered copy.

About this book, D'Alembert officially proclaim the superiority of the book Marsolier, while specifying that Fléchier "would have removed its competitor, if instead of considering Ximenes as a saint and politics, he had made a hypocrite sublime by skillfully used his views and beliefs of peoples handling with address, to cement his power, weapons that religion made him so powerful in the hands of the minister. "(quoted by Stephen D'Alembert Delacroix in his History of Fléchier) . Bookplate manuscript of the time the back of the page.

Alors que l'ouvrage de Fléchier tend à illustrer la sainteté du Cardinal, celui de Marsolier, plus critique, s'adresse "aux libertins, à ce parti des philosophes qui commençait à lever la tête". Réformateur religieux et homme politique, Ximénès (Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros) fut nommé Grand Inquisiteur d'Espagne et gouverneur de Castille ; il montra beaucoup de tempérence dans son administration de l'inquisition et sa politique envers les mores. A l'origine moine franciscain, n'oubliant pas ses origines, il tendit à une réforme profonde du clergé vers plus de morale. Il s'éteint en 1517, après s'être illustré sur tous les fronts, enseignement, politique...

Marque de l'imprimeur en page de titre, à la fleur de lys de Florence. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffes et mors en tête et queue restaurés. Coins dénudés. L'oeuvre parut quelques jours à peine après l'Histoire de Ximenez de Marsolier et dont la comparaison suscita une polémique jusqu'au XIXe siècle. Alors que l'ouvrage de Fléchier tend à illustrer la sainteté du Cardinal, celui de Marsolier, plus critique, s'adresse "aux libertins, à ce parti des philosophes qui commençait à lever la tête". Réformateur religieux et homme politique, Ximénès (Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros) fut nommé Grand Inquisiteur d'Espagne et gouverneur de Castille ; il montra beaucoup de tempérence dans son administration de l'inquisition et sa politique envers les mores. A l'origine moine franciscain, n'oubliant pas ses origines, il tendit à une réforme profonde du clergé vers plus de morale. Il s'éteint en 1517, après s'être illustré sur tous les fronts, enseignement, politique... Il est une des figures majeures de l'histoire de l'Espagne de cette fin du XVe siècle.

        Relation du voyage d'Espagne par Madame D*** Tome premier (-second). Seconde edition

      Chez Anisson & Posuel, Lyon 1693 - 2 voll. in 24, pp. (8) + 369 + (1b); 422. Annotazione manoscritta ai controp. ant. Carte brunite. Mancanze al dorso del I volume e al piatto anter. del II. Legatura in p. pl. coeva. Seconda edizione (I ed. 1691) del resoconto del viaggio in Spagna pubblicato anonimo ma scritto da madame D'Aulnoy, opera che conobbe numerose ristampe e traduzioni successive. Lo stile dell'A., spiritoso e salace, da' conto degli usi e costumi degli Spagnoli, del loro modo di vivere, delle leggi, del commercio, del lato devozionale e religioso del popolo intervallato con racconti di avventure e aneddoti di vario tipo. Ad esempio descrive che durante la cerimonia ufficialeÂper la pace di Nimega si distrasse e comincio' a leggere una copia del Don Chisciotte accidentalmente trovato. L'opera piacque molto ma fu presto anche criticata. L'A. - si disse - dall'inizio alla fine aveva raccontato una catena di episodi che avevano il solo scopo di schernire il popolo spagnolo e farlo apparire ridicolo cosi' come inattendibili erano i racconti delle sue vicissitudini. Foulche'-Delbosc disse che la prima parte del libro era la copia di altre opere di viaggio e arrivo' a sostenere che l'A. non era neppure maiÂstata in Spagna ma si era limitata a leggere le lettere che la madre, Madame de Gudannes, le aveva inviato da Madrid doveÂaveva vissuto. Marie-Catherine, baronessa d'Aulnoy (1650-105), scrittrice francese, fu costretta a sposarsi con François de La Motte, piu' vecchio di lei di quarantasei anni, col quale ebbe cinque figli. Cerco' di denunciare il marito per malversazione e complotto ai danni del re di Francia, fu quindi obbligata a lasciare il suo Paese, comincio' a girare per l'Europa. Ritornata a Parigi nel 1681 apri' un salone letterario. FRA

In 1698 he was appointed to the University of Leiden as the successor of the younger Friedrich Spanheim. He died in Leiden. While in his theology Witsius aimed at a reconciliation between the reigning orthodoxy and Covenant Theology (also known as federalism), he was first of all a Biblical theologian, his principal field being systematic theology. This belongs to his chief work. (First edition Leeuwarden, 1677). He was induced to publish this work by his grief at the controversies between Voetians and Cocceians. Although himself a member of the federalistic school, he was in no way blind to the value of the scholastically established dogmatic system of the Church. In the end, he did not succeed in pleasing either party. Fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Vida admirable y prodigiosas virtudes del venerable y apostolico padre Francisco del Castillo de la Compañia de Jesus, natural de Lima, ciudad de Los Reyes en la provincia del Perù

      Madrid: Antonio Roman 4to. [16] ff., 666 pp., [1] f. (without the portrait).. 1693 Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615–73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery. Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru. => The present biography is by a fellow Jesuit who knew Castillo. NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library show two U.S. library copies, plus one in Scotland, one in Mexico, six in Spain, and one in Chile. Provenance: On title-page, old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit colegio. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of button and loop ties, lacking the portrait. Front free endpaper with faint old pencilled notes, rear pastedown missing exposing lining, all edges red. A few short marginal tears or paper flaws, and one lower corner lost touching text (taking a bit of print but not sense); in all, a very good, clean, untattered copy.

        A New Discovery of Terra Incognita Australis, or the Southern World by James Sadeur a French-man

      London: for John Dunton, 1693. Duodecimo, shaving to head of final pages; a very good copy in contemporary plain calf, later lettering on the spine; slight wear to head and tail of spine but in very good condition. An antipodean hermaphrodite utopia. The first English language use of the words 'Australia' and 'Australians' in print.This rare English translation of 1693 contains the first anglicized usage of the words 'Australia' and 'Australian'. Ordinarily Matthew Flinders is credited as the first published author of the name 'Australia', as it appears in his Voyage to Terra Australis. However, Foigny's fantastic story predates this by more than a century.A curious book by any standards, A New Discovery of Terra Incognita Australis relates the adventures of hermaphrodite narrator Jacques Sadeur, born at sea and shipwrecked several times before reaching the southern continent. Here he finds an idealised society of large bodied hermaphrodites who live in harmony with one another. The author, Gabriel de Foigny, was a rebellious and libertine character 'constantly at loggerheads with the church authorities on account of his deplorable lifestyle and unacceptable behaviour' (Howgego). In the preamble to this book, Foigny leans on the reputation of Marco Polo, Magellan and de Quiros to bolster the factuality of the amazing southern continent, and even claims to have received written testimony from Sadeur himself to add credibility to the story. Indeed, a contemporary English newspaper account presents this publication as a true and factual voyage account.First published in Switzerland in 1676 (where it was promptly banned by church authorities), the book was republished in several locations - of which this English edition of 1693 and the Dutch edition of 1701 are notably rare.

        Politica predicavel e doutrina moral do bom governo do mundo ?.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Deslandes, 1693. - Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Numerous woodcut initials, several large and elegant. Woodcut headpieces (one large and nicely executed). Typographical headpieces. Large woodcut tailpieces. Text in 2 columns. (14 ll.), 760 pp. Folio (29.5 x 20.4 cm.), contemporary speckled sheep (some wear to corners and head of spine; lacks free endleaves), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments (some rubbing to bands), crimson leather lettering piece in second compartment from head (faded), gilt letter. Small hole in leaf B6 with loss of page numbers for pp. 23-4. Small tear repaired at lower outer corner of leaf F1. Very small worm trace in lower blank margin of quire G and in leaves H3-5, R2-4, and Ss5-Tt6, never affecting text. Some foxing and occasional small dampstains. Overall in good to very good condition. Contemporary ink inscription on title page: "Morgado de V.ª Cova." ---- FIRST EDITION; a second edition appeared in 1702. This advice on how to govern was published posthumously and dedicated by Fr. Joseph Evangelista, Ministro Provincial of the Terceira Ordem, to the then four-year-old prince, Dom João, who succeeded his father D. Pedro II in December 1706, and was crowned as D. João V on January 1, 1707. When written, the book was probably intended for the ill-fated son and heir of D. João IV, who became King Afonso VI in 1656. Taking a religious and moral tone, the work offers sound counsel on the powers and duties of a ruler. In addition to many biblical and other religious references, there are also references to classical authors and to more modern secular authorities.One curious feature of this volume is that the earliest license is dated 3 October 1652. Several more date from 1655 and 1656, then two from 1670, one from 1673, another from 21 August 1692, and the final three dated 9, 10, and 12 October 1693. Thus it took over 40 years to obtain the approval of the authorities to print the book. According to Porbase, there is a variant issue in which the final license is dated 21 August 1692. In addition to the dedication and licenses, the preliminary matter includes a privilege for ten years granted by the crown to the Franciscan Order, a four-page author's prologue, a neo-Latin epigram signed Emmanuel d'Abrantes, and another signed Fr. Valentinus de Alpoem, who also provides a sonnet in Portuguese. There is as well an elaborate thirteen-page table of contents. At the end is an "Elenchus por concionibus adaptandis" (pp. 640-78); an index of the most noteworthy things contained in the work (pp. 679-731); and an index to citations of Holy Scripture (pp. 732-60).Fr. Manoel dos Anjos was born in Manteigas, near Guarda, in 1595, and died at Coimbra, 1653. He also wrote a @Historia universal, originally published in Coimbra, 1651 (of which there appear to be two distinct issues), and what is probably yet another issue with a title page of Coimbra, 1652. Two different editions (issues?) of the @Historia universal, Lisbon, 1702, are said to be "correcta & emendada."---- Arouca A401. Cruz, @Tipografia portuguesa do séc.

Aus meiner Sicht in einem altersentsprechend guten Zustand, mit diversen Schäden. Der Papiereinband fehtl, ein Teil liegt lose im Buch. Die Seiten und Ecken der Seiten sind sichtbar berieben, leicht geknittert. Seiten auf Grund des hohen Alters gebräunt, ergraut, verfärbt - aber sauber. Keine Schmierereien, keine Verschmutzung. Auch wenn im Titel was von "illustriret" steht, konnte ich im Buch keine Illustrationen finden. Es scheint aber keine Seite zu fehlen, Seiten sind durchnummeriert. Am unteren Ende der letzten Seite steht "Ende", aus diesem Grund nehme ich an, dass Buch vollständig ist - bis auf den Schutzumschlag. Ich konnte das Buch trotz ewig langer Recherche im Internet nicht finden, darum der Preis. Preisvorschlag erwünscht. Rik1628100Wi Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 400 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
