Chronographus, Philo.
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. Well-preserved. - VD 17, 12:645730N. Weller, Pseud. 439.

Abu Hamid Muhammad al-Ghazzali.
N. p., 15th century.. 4to (25 x 16 cm). 127 ff. on Arabic manuscript paper, naskh script with ta'liq features, black ink with rubrics. Rebacked full-leather Oriental binding.. The still unedited book in both Arabic and Turkish is a manual of ethical advice based on verses of the Koran and the sayings of the prophet. This work on Islamic ethics is divided into 48 chapters.

[Bouillet, Jean]:
. . Erste deutsche Ausgabe von "Traite des moyens de rendre les Rivieres navigables" (Paris 1693; Amsterdam 1696). - Das Werk beruht auf der 1683 erschienenen Publikation "L'arte di restituire a Roma la tralasciata navigatione del suo Tevere" des holländischen Wasserbaumeisters Cornelis Meijer (Cornelius Meyer; 1640- ca. 1700). Dieser war nach Rom berufen worden, um den Tiber schiffbar zu halten. Der Kompilator war sehr wahrscheinlich der französische Architekt Jean Bouillet, über den jedoch nichts weiteres bekannt zu sein scheint. - In einzelnen Kapiteln beschreibt er die Hindernisse der Schiffahrt: zu wenig Wassertiefe, ungleicher Flußgrund, Felsen, Mühlen-Dämme, im weiteren über Uferzerstörung, Überschwemmungen, Hafen- u. Kanalvertiefung sowie einige "curieuse" Wasserbaumaschinen. Die schönen Kupfer (nach den Stichen von Meijer) mit zahlreichen Maschinen, Rollbrücken, verschiedenen Arten von Schleusen, Anlage von Buhnen u. Stichkanälen etc. - J. R. Fäsch (1680-1749) entstammte einem bekannten Basler Geschlecht u. war als polnischer u. sächsischer Ingenieur-Major (später Oberst) sowie Architekt beim Kadettenkorps in Dresden tätig.

Burnet, Gilbert.
(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. Titel verso mit gelöschtem Bibliotheksstempel. Gutes Exemplar. - VD17 3:607135P und 3:607137D.

Bekker, Balthasar.
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.

Saint-Simon, Claude de Rouvroy, duc de, French statesman (1607-1693).
Paris, 21. II. 1693.. 1 half page on a single 4to leaf (242 x 180 mm).. Receipt to Jean Brunet, receiver at La Rochelle "de la somme de mille quarante livres qu'il nous a envoyee par une lettre de change tiree sur Claude Laquain banquier a Paris". The courtier and father of the renowned memoirist Saint-Simon signed this receipt at the very end of his long life, just over two months before his death, as is graphically displayed in his shaky signature. Saint-Simon had entered the service of Louis XIII in 1627 and rose to become a royal councillor. His lands were in the vicinity of La Rochelle, given him by royal grant after the fall of the Huguenot-dominated city in 1628. Although, by the end of his life, under Louis XIV he held little effective power in the royal court he maintained an unusual (even excessive) sense of the dignity and importance of his family, a state of mind doubtless bequeathed to his son. - Transverse fold; some light foxing.

Welling, Georg von:
. . Erste vollständige Ausgabe, herausgegeben von dem radikalen Pietisten Christoph Schütz (1693-1750), der seit 1733 Kammerschreiber am Hof in Homburg gewesen ist. - Teil 1 "Vom Saltz" - nicht wie häufig falsch geschrieben Teil 2! - war bereits 1719 u. erneut 1729 von Samuel Richter (auch: Sincerus Renatus) gegen den Willen von Wellings publiziert worden. Hier erstmals gedruckt erscheinen die Teile 2 "Vom Schwefel" und 3 "Vom Mercurio", die von einer "Clavis operis. Das ist: Der Haupt-Schlüssel des gantzen Wercks" (S. 492-502) abgeschlossen werden. Diese fasst "seine wichtigsten naturphilosophischen und theosophischen Aussagen mittels graphischer Darstellungen noch einmal zusammen" (Jungmayr S. 38; hierzu die letzten 3 Tafeln).

Auch ließ sich Franciscus Mercurius van Helmonts 'Paradoxal Discourse' als direkte Vorlage zum 'Opus' ermitteln, und es konnten Indizien dafür gefunden werden, daß Welling mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit die Werke Johann Rudolph Glaubers kannte."

"Le Pere Plumier, a monk in the order of St. Francesco di Paula, was an important botantical traveller. Tournefort and he became friends and they herborized together throughout the Midi. After that, Plumier's travels included the Antilles and several long voyages to other islands in the West Indies and to America, where he discovered, drew, and described hundreds of new plants, many of which are shown in his own books, though much of his work had to remain unpublished until Boerhaave and Jean Burmann were able to edit part of his papers, and publish them as the Plantarum Americanarum Fascisculi X in 1755-60" (Hunt). "Plumier was one of the first naturalists interested in the Antilles. He is known for his excellent descriptions and drawings of a great number of species. Although Plumier's herbarium was lost in a shipwreck, his drawings and Surian's herbarium on which Plumier collaborated are extant.
