Under en lång följd av år höll han själv homiletiska föreläsningar och ledde predikoövningar. Han lade stor vikt vid högmässopredikan och utgav av trycket utkast till predikningar, vilka flitigt togs i bruk av prästerskapet till fromma för förkunnelsen inom stiftet". Johannes Gezelius d.ä.

La Suisse Divisée en ses Treze Cantons, ses Alliez & ses SujetsKopergravure gedrukt op twee gemonteerde bladen, uitgegeven in 1693 door Hubert Jaillot naar het werk van Nicolas Sanson. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 54 x 75 cm. De kaart is omlijst met stadswapens, de schaal van de kaart wordt in een legenda volgens verschillende maatstaven weergegeven. Na Nicolas Sanson was Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) de belangrijkste Franse cartograaf van de 17e eeuw. Jaillot, van origine een beeldhouwer, raakte geïnteresseerd in geografie door z´n huwelijk met de dochter van Nicolas Berey, een fameuze kaarten kleurder en ging in Parijs een partnerschap aan met de zonen van Sanson. Vanaf ongeveer 1669 hield Jaillot zich bezig met het hergraveren, vergroten en heruitgeven van de kaarten van Sanson in losse edities en in atlas vorm. Hij was succesvol in het opvullen van het gat in de markt dat was ontstaan na de grote brand in 1672, die de Amsterdamse uitgeverij van Blaeu in de as had gelegd.Met het verschuiven van het centrum van de cartografie, verandert ook de informatie op veel kaarten. Terwijl de Nederlandse cartografen zich toelegden op met name het decoratieve element van landkaarten en nogal eens fantasierijk omgingen met onbekende stukken land of zee, zijn kaarten van Franse makelij met name beroemd om hun wetenschappelijke accuratesse en wordt alleen die topografische informatie weergegeven die bij de tijd en correct was.  Prijs: € 975,- (excl.

Autor / Herausgeber unbekannt:
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 Versand D: 5,00 EUR

Buendía, José.
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. => … [Click Below for Full Description]

Barcia y Zambrana, José de.
Puebla: Imprenta de Diego Fernandez de Leon 4to (20 cm; 8"). [3] ff., 106 pp.. 1693 [also bound in] Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. En Madrid y por su original en Cadiz, 1691. [2] ff. First printed in the author's Despertador Christiano eucharistico (Madrid, 1690), the Epistola, here reprinted under the license of the bishop of Puebla, is the extracted matter on preaching on feast days. It gives practical advice on composing such sermons, including reasoning to employ against those who would object to things suggested by Barcia — who was an "in demand" preacher, and indeed, preacher to the King — and much other down-to-earth matter for pulpiteers. Certainly the work is not one of the handsomest examples of printing in Puebla, but the title-page is a prime example of the style of the 1690s. It has an ornamental border, both roman and italic type in multiple point sizes, printer's ornaments, and "too much information." There are bibliographical references on pp. 110–15. A special aspect of this copy is found in the binding. The front pastedown and the rear free endpaper and rear pastedown are leaves from the Cadiz, 1691 printing of the two-leaf newsletter Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. By reading the rear free endpaper and the rear pastedown then the front pastedown, one can => read the entire text of this rarity, including the information about the loss via shipwreck off Santo Domingo of a fleet headed to Holland in support of the Spanish force … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Dos un peu frottés, les pièces de titre sont havane clair pour les deux premiers tomes, rouges pour les trois derniers). Première édition peu commune du théologien français Elie Benoist (1640-1728) qui à la révocation de l'Edit de Nantes, se retira à Delft. Rappelons que cette édition fit sensation, tant par la somme de travail mais aussi et sans doute surtout pour les exactions dénoncées, et commises contre les protestants. Au tome V figure la liste (longue) du nom des protestants qui furent persécutés dans le royaume de France, de ceux qui furent amenés aux galères, ou de ceux qui furent chassés dans les colonies françaises). Texte éloquent qui n'empêcha pas le père Louis Thomassin, prêtre de l'Oratoire d'affirmer que l'édit de Louis XIV était bien moins dur que les lois des codes théodosien et justinien, qui avaient cependant été approuvées par les Pères de l'Eglise les plus pieux et les plus humains...

Barcia y Zambrana, José de.
Puebla: Imprenta de Diego Fernandez de Leon 4to (20 cm; 8"). [3] ff., 106 pp.. 1693 [also bound in] Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. En Madrid y por su original en Cadiz, 1691. [2] ff. First printed in the author's Despertador Christiano eucharistico (Madrid, 1690), the Epistola, here reprinted under the license of the bishop of Puebla, is the extracted matter on preaching on feast days. It gives practical advice on composing such sermons, including reasoning to employ against those who would object to things suggested by Barcia — who was an "in demand" preacher, and indeed, preacher to the King — and much other down-to-earth matter for pulpiteers. Certainly the work is not one of the handsomest examples of printing in Puebla, but the title-page is a prime example of the style of the 1690s. It has an ornamental border, both roman and italic type in multiple point sizes, printer's ornaments, and "too much information." There are bibliographical references on pp. 110?-15. A special aspect of this copy is found in the binding. The front pastedown and the rear free endpaper and rear pastedown are leaves from the Cadiz, 1691 printing of the two-leaf newsletter Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. By reading the rear free endpaper and the rear pastedown then the front pastedown, one can => read the entire text of this rarity, including the information about the loss via shipwreck off Santo Domingo of a fleet headed to Holland in support of the Spanish forc … [Click Below for Full Description]

This beautiful and rare map of the coast of Africa depicts the southeastern coast from St. Lucia north as far as River Mocambo and Mozambique. Oriented with north to the right, with text in both Latin and French, it covers the coast of the modern day nations of South Africa and Mozambique. Incredibly detailed along the coast, the sea chart labels several kingdoms, bays, rivers, capes and towns as well as coastal features, shoals and depth soundings. An inset in the top right details the region near Sofala and the Island of Inhancato in the Kingdom of Manica near Motapa.

This ancient region, part of the Kingdom of Monomotapa or Mutapa was first encountered by the Portuguese in the 16th century. The Europeans quickly became interested in the region, which was rich in gold, and soon became associated with the legends of King Solomon's Mines. Most of the gold mines however had been exhausted by the 1700's. This map is in good condition with large margins. Minor wear along the centerfold with some offsetting and foxing at places. Original pressmark is visible. Minor edge wear, including small rips, not affecting printed image. Two sheets joined at center.

Der niederländische Theologe Bekker (1634-1698) wurde mit seinem Werk „zum Herold des Adämonismus" (ADB). „Aufsehen erregte vor allem seine Schrift »De betoverte Weereld« (»Die bezauberte Welt«), in der er unter dem Einfluß der cartesianischen Philosophie nicht nur den Geister- und Hexenaberglauben bekämpfte, sondern auch den Glauben an Engel und den Teufel bestritt und die neutestamentlichen Berichte von den Heilungen dämonisch Besessener »natürlich« erklärte. Das Konsistorium in Amsterdam verdammte das Buch, und die Provinzialsynode von Alkmaar beschloß 1692 B.s Amtsenthebung. „ (F.W. Bautz in BBKL Band I Sp. 468).

Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1693. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 21.5 x 30". This beautiful sea chart of the NW coast of Africa covers from the Senegal River to Palmares (close to modern day Conakry in Guinea). Oriented with north to the left, it includes the whole or parts of the coasts of the modern day nations of Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea. The sea chart offers striking detail along the coast noting towns, rivers, islands and coastal features including banks and depth soundings. An inset of the Island of Goree (located near Cape Verde) is included with beautifully detailed interior notes Fort Nassau and Fort Orange. At the time, the Island was used as a base for the purchase of slaves from the chiefdoms on the mainland by the Atlantic slave traders. The map is in good condition with large margins.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
[Amsterdam: Mortier], 1693. Engraved with full, period colouring and gold embellishment. Small loss in bottom edge, about 1/4" Large, richly coloured chart of Picardy and the English Channel. This large scale, beautifully coloured coastal chart of the northwest coast of France and the English Channel comes from Le Neptune François , a lavish collection of charts produced collaboratively by Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier. As Koeman discovered in his research on this work (see P. Mortier, Atlantes Neerlandici, Maritime Atlases, p. 423-4), Mortier re-engraved the plates after the original French prototype Neptune François by Charles Pène and others in a richly coloured edition and added to the titles the words, in this case, "Faite par Ordre Exprez du Roy de France 1693" though they were in fact engraved, coloured and published in Amsterdam by Mortier. The Netherlands and France were fighting each other in the War of the Grand Alliance at this time. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French refugees, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAPHAEL. Raffaello Sanzio d'Urbino (1483-1520) - Nicolas DORIGNY (1648-1746, engraver)
Rome: Domenico de' Rossi, 1693. Large folio. 10 hand-coloured engraved plates by Dorigny on laid paper (each 15 7/8 x 26 inches approximately), titles and imprints printed in gold, black ink-ruled borders, each plate cut to the edge of the image, mounted on large sheets of contemporary thick laid paper (each 29 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches approximately). Unbound A very fine suite of richly hand-coloured plates offering a stunning visual record of one of the best of the decorative interior schemes carried out by Raphael in Rome. This wonderful series records Raphael's 'Cupid and Psyche' series of frescoes, carried out by him between 1516 and 1518 in the Loggia of Psyche in the villa Farnesina in Rome. The series also comes with a title and an eleventh plate of the ceiling fresco in the adjoining Sala di Galatea, executed in 1512: neither the plate nor the title are present here. Originally published by the Rossis, the engravings are the work of Nicolas Dorigny (1658-1746) who lived and worked in Rome between about 1690 and 1719. The painter, classicist, and art historian Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696) provided the text at the foot of the plates (appropriate excerpts from Apuleuis's Golden Ass).
