      Amsterdam, v. Dahlen (d. i. Hamburg, Hertel), 1693. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe eines der meistumstrittenen Werke der Zeit. Das bedeutendste Werk der Zeit zur Bekämpfung von Geisterglaube, Hexenwahn und Zauberei. Bekker wurde dadurch zum "Herold des Adämonismus" (ADB). "Bekker bestritt nicht nur den Glauben an die noch fortwaltenden 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 ein zweifelhaftes Licht zu stellen" (Seebaß-Kistner). Das Buch wurde bei Erscheinen verdammt und gegen Bekker ein Prozess mit der Folge der Amtsenthebung eingeleitet. Diese erste deutsche Übersetzung stammt von Johann Lange. Die Kupfertafel zeigt das sog. "Oldenburgische Horn", das vor allem bekannt ist durch seine Wiederverwendung in Arnims und Brentanos 'Knaben Wunderhorn'. – Leicht gebräunt, die Tafel mit dem Horn stärker.

      (Leipzig), Johann Friedrich Gleditsch, 1693. - Dritte Auflage der interessanten und detailreichen Beschreibung der Reise, die Burnet nach der Thronbesteigung Jakobs I. und seiner Amtsenthebung unternommen hatte. Zur Zeit der Veröffentlichung dieses Buches war Burnet vertrauter Rat Wilhelms von Oranien, den er auch 1688 nach England begleitete. Nach der Absetzung Jakob II. und dessen Flucht nach Frankreich wurde Burnet 1689 Bischof von Salisbury. ". sehr bedeutendes Buch . Seine Darstellung ist immer anregend zu lesen . wir verdanken ihm eine ausgezeichnete Darstellung des Lebens in Rom. Daneben nehmen Bemerkungen über Kunst und Künstler den gebührenden Raum ein. Das Gesamtbild, das Burnet von Italien entwirft, ist alles andere als glänzend. Die Armut des Landes, die verödeten Städte . veranlaßten ihn zu abfälligen Bemerkungen über das kirchliche Regime, dem er . die Schuld an den meisten Mißständen gab. Aber gerade diese Einseitigkeit, immer verbunden mit ausgezeichneten Beobachtungen, trugen zusammen mit dem guten Stil und der gewandten Darstellung nicht wenig zur Beliebtheit des Buches bei" (Schudt, Italienreisen, S. 88f u. 403; kennt diese Ausgabe nicht, die Vorlage für den (Teil-)Nachdruck von 1922).

      London: for James Moxon, 1693. later stiff wrappers, half brown morocco slipcase and chemise. small 4to. later stiff wrappers, half brown morocco slipcase and chemise. 52 pages. First separate appearance. (Bigmore & Wyman, Vol. II, p. 62; Burke no.810; Wing M3020). This edition of the work gives every appearance of having been made from leftover sheets. The text appears to be from the same setting of type as the first edition of 1676. The plates are printed on thin paper, with the exception of Plate I, which looks like new work for this edition. They correspond exactly with the like-numbered plates from the section on letter-cutting in Moxon's Mechanick Exercises of 1683. . ." (Burke catalogue). This last work, subtitled The Doctrine of Handyworks, was the first published manual describing printer's tools and the various processes of printing. In this present Regulae Trium Ordinum, as in the 1676 original, Moxon models his types on Elzevir's, but modifies them with his mathematician's sense of rigid geometrical proportion (Bigmore & Wyman). Lacking title and dedication leaves and one of the seven plates. Title, dedication to Christopher Wrenn, and plate thirteen supplied in photo facsimile. From the Library of Jackson Burke.

        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. (The Bewitched World: Or, a thorough examination of the general superstition concerning the arts and the assets violence and workings of Satan and the evil spirits over Man).

      Daniel van den Dalen, Amsterdam, [but Hertel, Hamburg] 1693 - Four books in one volume: TP + [3]-[40] = Generale Vorrede + Inhalt for Book 1 + 1-144 +1-270 + [271]-[272] = Inhalt for Book 2 + 1-195 + [196]-[198] = Inhalt for Book 3 +1-308 + 308[continued]-[312] Inhalt for Book 4; Quarto. First Edition. The Important First German Edition of Bekker's Masterful Refutation of Witchcraft - Published While Witches Were Still Being Burned in Massachusetts The important German edition which did much to spread the message of this work (published in the same year in Dutch). De betoverde Weereld is one of the most important text of what Jonathan Israel recently termed the 'Radical' Enlightenment. It caused a furor when it was first published in Holland and the firestorm quickly spread to Germany, France and England - where the book was translated and published within three years of its original appearance in Dutch. Bekker was a Reformed pastor who had caught the infectious disease of 'philosophizing' after the manner of Descartes and Spinoza - which, more than anything else, meant the freedom to reconsider received doctrine in the light of reason. Bekker previously had encountered difficulties with two of this earlier published works - an unconventional adult catechism [1670] and a book confounding the prevailing superstitions about comets [1683] - (there had been three spectacular sightings between 1680 and 1682).But nothing Bekker had previously written prepared the local clergy - or northern Europe - for the book that he published in 1691. Picking up on suggestions originally made by Descartes and Spinoza, The Bewitched World argued lucidly and effectively against the popular belief in spirits and the power of the devil over human beings claiming such beliefs were insupportable either by reason or by a careful reading of the Bible. It has been claimed that Bekker's book was such an effective attack on these ideas that he all but single-handedly caused the demise of the witchcraft trials and devil-based persecutions that had plagued northern Europe for much of the 17th Century. While it is easy to exaggerate the impact of Bekker's book, it is clear that The Bewitched World was a seminal work in the undermining of superstition, an early and powerful blow against the authority of the Bible, a significant instrument for the weakening of the Church's hold on men's beliefs, and a primary contributor to the liberation of thought across northern Europe. The Bewitched World appeared as four Books - the first two published in 1691 and the final two in 1693. These four books taken together were "the most monumental and comprehensive investigation of Satan, demonology, spirits, apparitions, magic, enchantment, and witchcraft - four volumes broaching the topic from every angle historical, philosophical, Scriptural, and judicial - ever written so far" (Israel, Radical Enlightenment, p. 379). And, their impact was similarly comprehensive and monumental. Contemporary vellum binding with light (but still gorgeous) hand lettering to the spine ("DR. BALTH. BEKKER Die Bezauberte Welt"). Binding with a bit of outer wear, but much less than one would expect in a book over 300 years old. There is a former owner's bookplate to the inside front cover ("Ex Libris E.G. Waller Amsterdam 1893"). All pages lightly and uniformly browned. A lovely copy of one of the major works of the Radical Enlightenment in the important German edition which did much to spread the message of this work that was published in the same year in Dutch.

        Tagera, Fig. 53

      Amsterdam 1693 - Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century. In 1693 he published his work, “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” in twelve volumes. This publication is the oldest comprehensive book printed on the natural plant wealth of Asia and of the tropics, specifically the south Indian Malabar region. Van Rheede’s “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus” is the result of 30 years of compiling and editing information from a team of the best of 17th century European physicians, scientist, technicians, illustrators and engravers, whom collaborated with scholars from all over India. It is of great importance today as a rare record of the plant wealth of Kerala (India) and medicinal uses of those plants, and is the only source of information about ancient Indian medicinal plants. Comprising 1,595 pages of text, all in Latin, the original book contains descriptions and illustrations of 742 plants. Included in the plant descriptions are the medicinal properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala). This fine hand-colored engraving from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” Tagera, Fig. 53, measures 15.25” x 18.5” and is in excellent condition with light staining around the edges and evidence of previous repair to the central crease. As illustrated on this plate, the plants are described by their names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. Expertly hand-colored, this engraving shows rich green stems and leaves, highlighted and shaded stylistically, with delicate yellow and orange flowers. Also shown on this plant are the seed pods and the roots, adding a scientific inquiry into this plant. Illustrated separately from the plant are the individual sections of the flowers, the pod and the seeds of the plant.

First published in 1690 as A Discourse about Trade. Sir Josiah Child (c.1631 - 1699) economic writer and merchant. "In 1690 he published under his own name the comprehensive Discourse about Trade, which included his Proposals for the Relief and Employment of the Poor, which had appeared earlier as an undated pamphlet. This work was reprinted in 1693 under the title A New Discourse on Trade to coincide with a new attempt in parliament to reduce the legal maximum rate of interest ( ... ) Child acquired considerable fame as an economic writer in his own day and was both widely read and frequently quoted. His works were reprinted continuously during the eighteenth century and published in French in 1754. He exerted influence because of his fluent and persuasive pen, his debating skills, and his obvious success in and experience of business" (ODNB). As Geoffrey Poitras notes "Child is another of the truly remarkable individuals populating the early history of financial economics. Child has some status as a noteworthy, pre-Smithian economist ( ... ) His status as Governor of the East India Company was matched by his stock trading acumen" (The Early History of Financial Economics, 1478-1776, 2000, 322).

Zwei äußerst seltene komplette Monatsschriften, die eine mit deutschem, die andere mit lateinischem Text, die - entgegen Beckers und der herrschenden Auffassung - unabhängig voneinander sind. Die deutschsprachige Zeitschrift enthält meist unbezeichnete Aufsätze über Luther, Böhme, den Ketzer David Georg, über Mäßigkeit, über das Sehen eines Wahnwitzigen, usw. Die Beiträge der lateinischen Zeitschrift stammen überwiegend von Jacob Thomasius, Christians Vater. Christian Thomasius (1655-1728), streitbarer Professor in Leipzig und Halle, war der erste, der seine Vorlesungen in deutscher Sprache hielt, "eine unerhört revolutionäre That". Als "der Begründer des deutschen Aufklärerthums und Journalismus ... lebt Th. hauptsächlich im Gedächtnisse der Nation weiter, ein zorn- und witzsprühender Eiferer gegen alles Niedrige und Beschränkte, gegen allen Schulen- und Regelzwang, ... mehr Vertreter des sog. gesunden Menschenverstandes und Agitator als Gelehrter, trotz aller gelegentlich dabei an den Tag gelegter Gelehrsamkeit" (ADB). Nachdem er sich in seiner Vaterstadt Leipzig mit aller Welt überworfen hatte, ging er - mit Ratstitel und Gehalt aus Berlin ausgerüstet - nach Halle, wo er Vorlesungen halten durfte, aus denen dann die juristische Fakultät hervorging, der Kern der Universität Halle. "In den ersten Jahren mußte Th. den Schülern ... Alles in Allem sein ... Er hielt ihnen nicht nur Vorträge über die gesammte positive Rechtswissenschaft, ... sondern er nahm auch praktische Uebungen in dem Gebrauch der deutschen Sprache, in der Logik und Rechtsanwendung mit ihnen vor, ja kümmerte sich um ihre Manieren, ihren äußeren Anstand; so bot er ihnen nicht nur in seiner einzigen Person eine ganze philosophische und eine ganze juristische Facultät, sondern selbst den Lehrmeister in Dingen, welche Schule und Elternhaus verabsäumt hatten" (ADB). - Kein vollständiges Exemplar im JAP seit 1950. - Gering gebräunt.

        Tenga Latina, fig. 1

      Amsterdam 1693 - Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Draakenstein was a Dutch traveler, the one time Governor of Cochin and a naturalist whom worked for the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century. In 1693 he published his work, “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” in twelve volumes. This publication is the oldest comprehensive book printed on the natural plant wealth of Asia and of the tropics, specifically the south Indian Malabar region. Van Rheede’s “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus” is the result of 30 years of compiling and editing information from a team of the best of 17th century European physicians, scientist, technicians, illustrators and engravers, whom collaborated with scholars from all over India. It is of great importance today as a rare record of the plant wealth of Kerala (India) and medicinal uses of those plants, and is the only source of information about ancient Indian medicinal plants. Comprising 1,595 pages of text, all in Latin, the original book contains descriptions and illustrations of 742 plants. Included in the plant descriptions are the medicinal properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala). This fine hand-colored engraving titled "Tenga Latina, fig. 1" from “Hortus Indicus Malabaricus,” measures 15.25” x 19” and is in excellent condition with evidence of previous repair to the central crease and light staining and foxing in the margins. As illustrated on this plate, the plant is described by its names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. These coconut trees show off the different sizes and lengths of the tress as well as the roots and other, smaller palm trees. A large palm extending from the center to the right of the engraving details the branch of the tree. This dynamic engraving is richly colored with shades of green and brown with precise lines to define and detailed the plants.

      Roma, nella Stamperia di Gio: Giacomo Komarek, 1693-1700. In folio (mm. 405x272), 2 parti in 2 voll., p. pelle bazana settecentesca, sottili cornici dorate ai piatti (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, 110; 127 cc.nn. di testo e tavole prospettiche incise in rame. - Primo volume: 1 frontesp. latino, 1 frontesp. italiano, 1 antiporta incisa, 1 c. con dedica a ?"Leopoldo Austriaco Imperadore?" in italiano, 1 c. con dedica in latino, 1 c. con ?"Imprimatur?" e ?"Avvisi ai principianti?"

Le incisioni all?'acquaforte sono di Vincenzo Mariotti, allievo dell?'Autore. Importantissimo e fondamentale trattato per la storia della teoria della prospettiva, con le due parti provenienti da due diverse versioni ma "entrambe in prima edizione". La Prima parte appartiene alla versione bilingue latino-italiana (rispettivamente in caratteri corsivo e tondo) e la Seconda parte appartiene alla versione bilingue italiano-tedesco (entrambi in carattere tondo). Il lavoro del Pozzo fu sostanzialmente nuovo e originale, in quanto concepito per soddisfare le esigenze pratiche di architetti, scenografi e pittori, senza però mai allontanarsi dall?'esattezza scientifica. In questo senso il libro segna un ritorno alla trattatistica di prospettiva da parte di ?"operatori?" artistici, che per quasi tutto il ?'600 ne avevano praticamente lasciato il monopolio agli uomini di scienza. Nella prima parte dell?'opera sono trattati i canoni basilari della materia e le regole fondamentali con la loro applicazione ai differenti ordini architettonici. Nella seconda parte il Pozzo descrive un procedimento originale per disegnare la prospettiva, applicato a cupole, altari, fontane, scale e a vari elementi architettonici. Il libro si conclude con la descrizione della tecnica dell?'affresco, profondamente conosciuta e spesso utilizzata dal Pozzo. Cfr. Studi e documenti d?'architettura, n. 9-10 - Riccardi,I,317-318: ?"Queste due parti furono più volte ristampate in Roma e furono tradotte in tedesco, francese e inglese - Berlin Kat.,4725 - Comolli,III,173: ?"Ecco la miglior opera che abbiamo in questo genere.. Uscì per la prima volta in Roma nel 1693 e 1700 nella Stamperia del Komarek in due grandi tomi in folio..?" - Fowler,251 - Cicognara,854 - Cat. n. 1 (1983) Libreria Archivolto, p. 68. Lievi arross. solo margin. a un vol., altrimenti esemplare su carta distinta ben conservato. Opera molto rara. "Andrea Pozzo, pittore, architetto e teorico della prospettiva (Trento 1642 - Vienna 1709). Lavorò dapprima a Milano, dove entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù, poi a Genova, a Venezia, nell?'Emilia, a Mondovì e a Torino. Chiamato a Roma nel 1681, vi svolse un?'inensa attività e vi compì il suo capolavoro: la grandiosa decorazione della tribuna e della volta di S. Ignazio, raffigurante la gloria del Santo (1685-91 ca.). Per invito di Leopoldo I si recò a Vienna nel 1703 e vi rimase sino alla morte.

As illustrated on this plate, the plant is described by its names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. This plant is expertly hand-colored with rich branches and leaves in green, yellow and red, with red and green flower buds. The highlighting and shadowing on this engraving give the plant a naturalistic look, as though it is blowing in the wind. The flower buds are further detailed below the branch as a cross-section of the bud and seed is illustrated alongside the delicate pink and white flower.
