      In Verlegung Friedrich Lankischen Erben, 1693.. Auflage aus dem Buch nicht ersichtlich 640 Seiten Broschiert. Das Buch befindet sich auf Grund der einfachen Bindung, des Alters in einem akzeptablen Zustand - jedoch scheint es vollständig zu sein und die auch wenn es im Buchblockk etwas auseinander bricht, nocht ganz gut gebunden. 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

Ayeta describes how New Mexico's once thriving missions had been nearly abandoned - he doesn't mention it by name, but this was in the wake of the 1680 Pueblo revolt where the Pueblo people threw off the Spanish, killing 400 of them and driving some 2000 from New Mexico.

Schrifft in 4 Büchern zu bewehren sich unternommen hat Balthasar Bekker [...] Nebenst des Authoris generale Vorrede über diese seine 4 Bücher; [...] Aus dem Holländischen nach der letzten vom Authore vermehrten Edition in die teutsche Sprache übersetzet. Vermutlich dtsch. Erstausg.

      Gedruckt zu Amsterdam, bey Daniel von Dahlen bey der Börse [d.i. Hamburg, Hertel], 1693.. 39, 136 [recte 144] S., mit kl.

Übers. ermittelt: Johann Lange); Hayn-Gotendorf III,177; Graesse S.62; Cornell S.52; Ackermann I/332: "Wichtigstes Werk der Zeit gegen den Glauben an Hexen und Teufel." - Eine von 3 Druckvarianten im Jahr der ersten deutschen Ausgabe. Da die anderen beiden mit tlw. korrigierten Paginierungen u. etwas abweichender Orthographie auf dem Titelblatt erschienen, kann man den vorliegenden Band vermutlich als dtsch. Erstausg. ansehen. - Das Kupfer zeigt das "Oldenburgische Horn", 1808 wieder aufgegriffen in der Titeldarstellung des II. Bandes von "Des Knaben Wunderhorn". - Der holländische Theologe u. Prediger Balthasar Bekker (1634-1698) war einer der entschiedensten Kämpfer gegen den Hexenglauben. Das vorliegende, bedeutende Werk erschien zuerst zw. 1691 u. 1693 in Einzelausgaben. Da Bekker hier auch die grundlegende Macht des Teufels bestreitet, war er dauernden persönlichen Angriffen ausgesetzt; bereits 1692 wurde er durch die Synode von Alkmaar als Prediger abgesetzt u. eine Unzahl von Streitschriften wurden gegen ihn veröffentlicht. Welche epochale Wirkung sein Werk trotzdem hatte, zeigt sich daran, dass es nach der frühen dtsch. Übersetzung bereits 1694 auch in französischer u. 1695 in englischer Sprache vorlag. "Es ist ein äusserst gründliches und ausführliches Werk, vielleicht das grösste, das jemals über Magie geschrieben worden ist [...] Bekkers Buch erregte gewaltiges Aufsehen und erschien in vielen Auflagen und in verschiedenen Sprachen" (Hartmut Lehmann: Hexenverfolgungen und Hexenprozesse, in: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Geschichte in Tel Aviv, 1978). Alle nachfolgenden Gegner der Hexenverfolgung berufen sich auf Bekker. - Einband leicht aufgeworfen; Innendeckel tlw. angeplatzt, vorne mit altem Besitzvermerk u. hinten mit Besitzerstempel; Titel mit kl. Randläsuren, wenige Seiten leicht fleckig u. gebräunt (darunter die Kupfertafel); insgesamt ein schönes Expl.

        DANTE. Con una breve e sufficiente dichiarazione del senso letterale diversa in più luoghi da quella degli antichi Comentatori. Alla Santità di N.S. Clemente XII.

      Opera completa in tre volumi, contenenti le tre cantiche della "Commedia". Cm.20x13,3. Pg.(20), 261, (3 non numerate con errata); 273, (4 non numerate); 294, (5 non numerate). Legature coeve in piena pergamena rigida, con unghie, con titoli manoscritti ai dorsi. Minima mancanza al piatto anteriore del terzo volume. Tagli spruzzati. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Fregio silografico al frontespizio del primo volume. Capolettera xilografico animato alla dedicatoria. Fresco esemplare, salvo fisiologiche lievi bruniture alle carte. Assai rara prima edizione, stampata a Lucca, della "Commedia" dantesca annotata dal Padre gesuita Pompeo Venturi (Siena, 1693 - 1752). L'opera venne stampata a spese della Compagnia del Gesù, curata da Giovan Battista Placidi, anch'egli senese e gesuita. E' unanimemente considerata come il primo commento moderno alla "Commedia", godendo di vasta fama e numerose ristampe sino alla metà dell'Ottocento. Su di essa spesero positive parole sia Vico (?difficil nesso di chiarezza e brevità?) che Croce.

        L'Ancienne Médecine à la Mode, ou le sentiment uniforme d'Hippocrate et de Galien sur les Acides et les Alkalis.

      A Paris, chez Laurent d'Houry, 1693. - in-12. 4ff. 219pp. 1f. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque, petites restaurations). Edition Originale. Né à Orléans en 1644, Aignan avait été capucin dans sa jeunesse et de plus il avait travaillé au Louvre vers 1678 en qualité de chimiste. Devenu médecin du Roi et Docteur de la Faculté de Padoue, il avait élaboré des idées médicales opérant une curieuse synthèse entre la théologie, la médecine classique et la chimie. Dans cet ouvrage il désigne Galien et Hippocrate comme les véritables inventeurs de la médecine chimique, et il s'étend notamment sur la nature chimique de la digestion. Bon exemplaire.

Caillet 915, Norman 162 und Rosenthal, Bibl. mag., 2872/73 (nur holländ. bzw. französ.

"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!

He was best known for his grandiose frescoes using illusionistic technique called quadratura, in which architecture and fancy are intermixed. His masterpiece is the nave ceiling of the Church of Sant'Ignazio in Rome. Through his techniques, he has become one of the most remarkable figures of the Baroque period. He is also noted for the architectural plans of the Ljubljana Cathedral (1700), inspired by the designs of the Jesuit churches Il Gesù and S. Ignazio in Rome. (Wikipedia).

A very good complete copy. This is the first edition of a compilation of treatises on geomancy including Robert Fludd's Tractatus de Geomantia, H. de Pisis' Opus Geomantiae completum in libros tres, and Quaestiones Geomantiae Altakini. Robert Fludd was an English physician and a prominent Rosicrucian. Geomancy was historically a form of predicting the future or uncovering facts hidden to the inquirer using a number of dots randomly jotted down by the geomancer. Fludd attempted to take this idea a little further and to use its application to unlock the unconscious part of the mind. Consequently, the work is of interest to historians of early psychology. Bound with: Tabulae Geomanticae, anonymous, FIRST EDITION 1693, small 8vo, pages: (3), 4 - 197, (3 - blanks), 2 folding tables precede the title page: Tabula Harmonica Sublunarium and Speculum Judiciale Astrologicum.

      (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). Der umfangreiche "Anhang" enthält drei Briefe des Cornand de Lacroze; der bedeutsame dritte Brief behandelt die politischen Probleme der italienischen Staaten und besonders die Stellung Guastallas innerhalb des oberitalienischen Staatensystems. – Exlibris Breitenbauch.

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).

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.
