        Hebrew title] Bibliotheca Latino-Hebraica sive de Scriptoribus Latinis: [with] Avventus Messiae a Iudaeorum Blasphemiis, ac Haereticorum Calumniis vindicatus

      Rome Propaganda Fide 1694 - Carlo Giuseppe Imbonati, Cistercian, orientalist, biographer, theologian, born at Milan, flourished in the latter half of the seventeenth century. He occupied the chairs of theology and Hebrew in Rome and was raised to the dignity of abbot. A pupil of Giulio Bartolocci, member of the same order and projector of the "Bibliotheca magna rabbinica", the earliest account of Hebrew literature in its rabbinic phase, Imbonati eventually became his master's collaborator and on his demise he completed and edited the fourth volume (Rome 1693) of this monumental work, which, laid the foundation for Wolf's "Bibliotheca hebraica" and similar works. This, the supplementary fifth volume, gives, under 1,319 numbers, 2,166 works written in Latin on rabbinic subjects, and also contains a "Chronology of Sacred Scripture" and two dissertations of an apologetico-polemical character (viz., on the Messias, and on the Divinity and Humanity of Christ) based upon miscellaneous Hebrew, Greek, and Latin writings. Contemporary vellum, rather soiled, over card boards. Some leaves spotted, a few browned. A very good copy. Bookplate of the Library of the Metropolitan Church of Westminter, with duplicate stamp. First edition Two parts in one volume, folio, pp. [xv (including half-title)], 549, 277, [iv], engraved portrait of the author by Hub. Vincent after Franc. Andreonus.

        America Septentrionalis

      Amsterdam 1694 - La prima carta del solo Nord America mai pubblicata in un atlante olandese. La prima edizione della mappa, firmata da Hendrick Hondius è databile al 1636/39; successivamente la lastra, senza alcuna modifica, venne tirata da Janssonius, Visscher ed Allard. Nel 1694 Petrus Schenk si aggiudica in un'asta pubblica tutte le lastre dell'Atlas Maior, e comincia subito a pubblicare questa mappa con il suo indirizzo: "Amstelodami, Penes Gerardum Valck et Petrus Schenk". Dopo il 1700, Shenk aggiorna la mappa sulla base della più avanzata geografia di Guillaume de L'Isle. Ne consegue che questo terzo stato della lastra di Hondius sia molto raro. Esemplare su carta leggermente brunita con bella coloritura coeva. Valck & Schenk edition of the earliest separate map of the North America to appare in any Dutch Atlas, first published by Hendrick Hondius in 1636/39, then by Janssonius and often included in the composite Visscher and Allard atlases. In 1694 Petrus Schenk acquired all of the Atlas Major maps at public auction, and began issuing the map with his own imprint. This last state is uncommon. Shortly, after 1700 he relaced the map with a new one based upon the more advanced geography of Guillaume de L'Isle. Fine original colouring, light brown paper, good conditions. P. D.

        Mappe-Monde ou Carte Generale de la Terre Divisee en Deux Hemispheres. Mappe-Monde ou Carte Generale de la Terre Divisee en Deux Hemispheres Suivant la Projection la Plus Commune ou Tous les Points Principaux sont Placez sur les Observations

      Parigi 1694 - - RARISSIMA EDIZIONE, DATATA 1706 - Il mappamondo a due emisferi di Nicolas de Fer, edito per la prima volta nel 1694, è una delle più decorative mappe murali del mondo. Shirley lo ha descritto come un "capolavoro ornamentale, pubblicato da Nicolas de Fer per celebrare i successi dell'Osservatorio di Parigi e la Royal Academy nell’ osservazione dei movimenti planetari". Incisa da Herndrik van Loon, con numerosi elementi decorativi disegnati e incisi da Nicolas Guerard, la mappa è una delle carte murali francese più durature ed emblematiche che sarebbe stata appesa nei salotti e nelle biblioteche della aristocrazia francese durante i regni di Luigi XIV e Luigi XV. Dopo la prima edizione del 1694, priva dei pannelli laterali per il testo, la carta fu periodicamente aggiornata, nelle successive quattro decadi, sulla base dei risultati delle esplorazioni nelle Indie Orientali e Occidentali. Le edizioni successive, del 1701 e del 1705, mostrano l’aggiunta dei pannelli laterali con testo descrittivo. Spesso il testo ha una datazione diversa da quella della mappa. Seguono poi le edizioni del 1717, 1720, 1730 e 1737. Queste ultime due edizioni furono pubblicate dal successore di de Fer, il genero Guillalme Danet che ereditò i suoi rami, poi passati al Desnos. Le edizioni del mappamondo che recano la data 1701 sono rarissime: Shirley evidenzia che la maggior parte degli esemplari noti di questa carta sono datati 1717 o più tardi e che le prove delle primissime edizioni sono di estrema rarità. Shirley ha censito solo due esemplari della prima edizione del 1694, uno nella Biblioteca Nazionale di Parigi, l’altro A Karlsruhe, mentre non ha individuato alcun esemplare nelle collezioni istituzionali inglesi e americane, conferendo, pertanto, alla mappa il livello di rarità più elevato, RRR. Sotto il profilo cartografico, le note di rilievo sono la rappresentazione della California come un'isola e le prime affascinanti raffigurazioni di Australia e Nuova Zelanda. Nell'interno dell'Africa, De Fer registra fiumi e catene montuose immaginarie introdotti dai suoi predecessori. Uno degli affluenti del Nilo viene correttamente fatto provenire dal Lago Tana, ma l'altro trova la sua sorgente nel Sahara. Circa la zona lungo l'equatore De Fer afferma che è preferibile lasciare lo spazio vuoto, piuttosto che riempirlo con particolari sconosciuti e immaginari. Lungo il margine superiore della carta, sono le immagini di Saturno, Giove, Marte, Venere e Mercurio basate sui lavori di Cassini, e due piani del sole e della luna. Gli emisferi inseriti in una cornice decorativa riccamente incisa con figure di divinità, motivi zodiacali e mitologici. I pannelli laterali contengono una descrizione storica e una spiegazione degli ornamenti della mappa. Carta professionalmente restaurata e finemente coloarata a mano, con uniforme brunitura della carta. Lievi mancanze nel testo scritto, pe ril resto in buono stato di conservazione. - VERY RARE EDITION, dated 1706, not described by SHIRLEY - Rare 1706 edition of Nicolas De Fer's monumental double hemisphere wall map of the World, first published in 1694. De Fer's map is one of the most decorative wall maps of the World which is reasonably obtainable to a collector. First published in 1694, the map was periodically updated with the newest cartographic discoveries over the next 4 decades. Engraved by Hendrik van Loon, with decorative embellishments designed and engraved by Nicolaus Guerard, the map is one of the most enduring and iconic French wall maps of the World and would have hung in the salons and libraries of the French aristocracy during the Reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. There are 2 known copies of the 1694 map in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris and one in Karlsruhe. Shirley was unable to locate any examples in British or American institutional collections, and gave the map an RRR, the highest level of rarity. Shirley notes editions of 1705, 1717 (text dated 1720), 1730 and 1737. Danet began publishing t [Attributes: First Edition]

Gabriel Daniel (1649 - 1728) born in Rouen, was a French Jesuit scholar, author of books on history, philosophy and religion. In this book, called a romance by the translator and sometimes classed as science fiction, he visits the moon and explores the cosmos of rotating vortices hypothesized by Descartes circa 1640, a cosmos recently confirmed by studies of the origins of the solar system, of spiral galaxies, and of accretion disks around black holes. Pere Daniel's efforts are directed to satirising the Cartesian system and theories. ESTC R29697. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        An Essay upon Reason, and the Nature of Spirits.

      Printed for John Dunton 1694 - FIRST EDITION, with one diagram in the text, some page numerals (at top) cropped, minor browning at the end pp. [vviii, lincluding initial blank], 280, 8vo, modern calf backed boards, armorial bookplate of Edward Hoare preserved from old binding. Burthogge 'dedicated two philosophical works to Locke, evidently seen as a prestigious ally. An Essay upon Reason, and the Nature of Spirits begins with an effective restatement of his idealism, emphasizing the role of categorial concepts and making some use of Lockean argument. There are interesting suggestions as to the nature of consciousness, leading into a somewhat Spinozistic, "harmoniously" speculative panpsychism, which was further defended in 1699. In the last years of both their lives Burthogge corresponded with Locke, whose commentary on St Paul adopts the interpretation of Romans 8: 28-30 (a major source of the doctrine of the elect) argued for in Burthogge's last work, published in 1702 . Burthogge has received some recognition by historians of philosophy, both in the past, as by Sir William Hamilton and Ernst Cassirer, and in recent work. But it has been summary and in passing, generally with emphasis on his 'anticipation' of Kant or, less commonly, of Locke. His thought deserves fuller consideration, however, both as an illustration of what modern idealism owed to error theory and toleration theory, and for his revealing, strangely compelling arguments themselves - in their simplicity, at least, in sharp contrast to Kant's' (Michael Ayers in ODNB). Jean Yolton, in the Introduction to her Bibliography of Locke remarks that a chapter on books dedicated to Locke (as in Fulton's Boyle) 'would be very short', and points out that Burthogge's Of the Soul of the World, though addressed to Locke is not in fact dedicated to him.

        Rotterdam panorama - Romeijn de Hooghe, Johannes de Vou, 1694/1778.

      BEROEMD PANORAMA VAN ROTTERDAM?Rotterdamum?, gravure gedrukt van 4 koperen platen vervaardigd door Romeijn de Hooghe naar tekeningen van Johannes de Vou. Voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1694. Om de inmiddels gegroeide stad volledig weer te geven, werden in 1778 beide buitenste bladen opnieuw gegraveerd. Ze werden verlengd waardoor ook de uitbreiding rond het Boerengat (rechts) en de Zalmhaven (links) er op staan. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. 25,5 x 231,5 cm, lijst 55,5 x 262,0 cm.Van links naar rechts zien we de Zalmhaven, de Wester Nieuwehoofdpoort en de Ooster Nieuwehoofdpoort die de toegang geven tot de Leuvehaven, de Boompjes met het VOC gebouw, de Sint-Laurenskerk en de mond van de Oudehaven, geflankeerd door de Wester- en de Ooster Oudehoofdpoort (beide poorten worden beschermd door een in de Maas uitstekend bastion, waarop kanonnen geplaatst zijn), de huizen aan de achterzijde van het Haringvliet, het bolwerk met stadstimmerhuis en de stadtimmerwerf rondom de Nieuwe Haven en Hoge Zeedijk.?Reeds van oudsher hebben de Rotterdammers prijs gesteld op het bezit van een afbeelding hunner stad aan den Maaskant en vooral in de 17e eeuw werd op uitnemende wijze aan dien wensch tegemoet gekomen. Vrij kort na elkander verschenen toen van de stad drie panorama?s, die ?n door de artistieke bewerking ?n door hun royaal formaat de fraaiste van alle Rotterdamsche Maasgezichten genoemd mogen worden. Het zijn kapitale kopergravures, waarvan de eerste omstreeks 1640 bij Jacobus Allard verscheen, de tweede in 1665 door Jacob Quack werd uitgegeven en de derde in 1694 in opdracht van het stadsbestuur door Romeyn de Hooghe en Johannes de Vou vervaardigd werd. Het is echter het Maasgezicht van De Vou dat verreweg de meeste bekendheid heeft gekregen.? Aldus de Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant op 23 mei 1917.Het panorama werd vervaardigd in combinatie met een grote plattegrond, gezichten van de belangrijkste gebouwen en wapens van de vroedschapsleden. De exemplaren die de eeuwen hebben overleefd, zijn veelal los van elkaar bewaard gebleven.Prijs: ?7.250,- (incl. lijst).

The Bragadini firmÂ’s near-monopoly on Hebrew printing in Venice was broken in 1631 by Giovanni Vendramin, though his press amalgamated with the Bragadini house in the course of the 18th century.

        Rotterdam panorama - Romeijn de Hooghe, Johannes de Vou, 1694/1778.

      BEROEMD PANORAMA VAN ROTTERDAM?Rotterdamum?, gravure gedrukt van 4 koperen platen vervaardigd door Romeijn de Hooghe naar tekeningen van Johannes de Vou. Voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1694. Om de inmiddels gegroeide stad volledig weer te geven, werden in 1778 beide buitenste bladen opnieuw gegraveerd. Ze werden verlengd waardoor ook de uitbreiding rond het Boerengat (rechts) en de Zalmhaven (links) er op staan. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. 25,5 ? x 231,5 cm, lijst 55,5 x 262,0 cm.Van links naar rechts zien we de Zalmhaven, de Wester Nieuwehoofdpoort en de Ooster Nieuwehoofdpoort die de toegang geven tot de Leuvehaven, de Boompjes met het VOC gebouw, de Sint-Laurenskerk en de mond van de Oudehaven, geflankeerd door de Wester- en de Ooster Oudehoofdpoort (beide poorten worden beschermd door een in de Maas uitstekend bastion, waarop kanonnen geplaatst zijn), de huizen aan de achterzijde van het Haringvliet, het bolwerk met stadstimmerhuis en de stadtimmerwerf rondom de Nieuwe Haven en Hoge Zeedijk.?Reeds van oudsher hebben de Rotterdammers prijs gesteld op het bezit van een afbeelding hunner stad aan den Maaskant en vooral in de 17e eeuw werd op uitnemende wijze aan dien wensch tegemoet gekomen. Vrij kort na elkander verschenen toen van de stad drie panorama?s, die én door de artistieke bewerking én door hun royaal formaat de fraaiste van alle Rotterdamsche Maasgezichten genoemd mogen worden. Het zijn kapitale kopergravures, waarvan de eerste omstreeks 1640 bij Jacobus Allard verscheen, de tweede in 1665 door Jacob Quack werd uitgegeven en de derde in 1694 in opdracht van het stadsbestuur door Romeyn de Hooghe en Johannes de Vou vervaardigd werd. Het is echter het Maasgezicht van De Vou dat verreweg de meeste bekendheid heeft gekregen.? Aldus de Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant op 23 mei 1917.Het panorama werd vervaardigd in combinatie met een grote plattegrond, gezichten van de belangrijkste gebouwen en wapens van de vroedschapsleden. De exemplaren die de eeuwen hebben overleefd, zijn veelal los van elkaar bewaard gebleven.Prijs: ?7.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Most Delectable History of Reynard the Fox

      1694. [SHIRLEY, John]. The Most Delectable History of Reynard the Fox. Newly Corrected and Purged, from all grossness in Phrase and Manner. Augmented and Enlarged with sundry Excellent Morals and Expositions upon every several Chapter. To which may now be added a Second Part of the said History: As also the Shifts of Reynardine the Son of Reynard the Fox, Together with his Life and Death. ISSUED WITH: The Most Pleasant and Delightful HistoryÂ… The Second Part. ISSUED WITH: The Shifts of Reynardine. London: Edward Brewster (Thomas James), 1694, 1681, 1684. Three volumes in one. Small quarto, 18th-century full brown sheep expertly rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, red morocco spine label. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7500.Mixed first and sixth editions of these three 17th-century continuations of this immensely popular European beast fable, issued together under a general title page, handsomely printed in Gothic type and generously illustrated with 76 delightful woodcuts.Children love animals, and many of those who love to tell children stories, from Aesop to Walt Disney, have used animals to do so. ""Beast fables,"" starring anthropomorphic denizens of the animal kingdom, have long entertained and instructed young audiences—and more than a few older ones, as well. The trickster folk hero Reynard the Fox has, since as early as the 12th century, proven a particularly popular star of children's tales. In his earliest adventures, which circulated orally throughout Europe (both France and Germany claim the character as their own), Reynard served as a vehicle for satirical, grown-up attacks on the nobility and the clergy. ""Satire, of course, means nothing to the very young, yet the spectacle of beasts talking and behaving like human beings has always fascinated them when it is well presented"" (Meigs et al., 33). A medieval Latin poem as well as a 1479 Dutch served important early printer William Caxton as sources for the first English translation of Reynard's adventures, published in 1481. Philosopher John Locke, in Some Thoughts Concerning Education (1693), commended both Reynard and Aesop as pedagogically valuable volumes, since they contained ""stories apt to delight and entertain a child, [which] may yet afford useful reflections to a grown man"" (Darton, 17). Scholars generally credit John Shirley with the present version. Shirley produced a History of Reynard ""in heroic verse"" in 1681 (DNB). The epic tale ""is thoroughly amusing with its characterization of the clever animal who outwits all the rest— the resourceful Reynard who keeps getting the better of every creature who is sent against him"" (Meigs et al., 33). First published in 1650. Printed in Gothic type, with explanations of the stories' morals and meanings in marginal glosses. The second and third titles in this issue are the first editions of 1681 and 1684, respectively. With 76 woodcut illustrations including a few repeated blocks, signed with initials ""E.B."" Woodcut on C1r printed upside down. Wing S3513; S3512; S3436. Lowndes 2076. Early owner signature on title page. Armorial bookplate.Interiors generally clean, with sparse scattered foxing. Light expert restoration to extremities of early sheep. A near-fine copy of one of the earliest obtainable English versions of this popular legend, wonderfully illustrated.

        Arlequiniana ou les bons mots, les histoires plaisantes & agréables

      First Edition? A similar edition was published on the same date by the same publisher, but in a slightly larger format, with a different snack, a flagship of different title and without title page red and black. This edition may be a counterfeit. A frontispiece representing Harlequin. Uncommon. Vellum half later. Smooth spine with respect to the red pen. Arlequiniana, which remains a literary curiosity, belongs to a prominent genre of French literature, born in the late seventeenth and flourishing in the first half of the eighteenth it comes to these collections of jokes or stories pleasant or Ana which can be entered with the birth in 1693 Menagiana This kind has the distinction of staging his own author and dialogue with the reader, it seems to have no other purpose than to entertain as it seeks to educate because in this age of censorship, literature created this seemingly light but satirical critique of society and manners mode. Charles Cotolondi wrote several books in this field, including Evremonmania. Harlequin, thanks to the famous theater of the Fair in Paris became very famous and was a kind, and it is deliberately Cotolondi actually a kind of wise fool, like a Scapin for Molière. The set is a series of conversations that combines stories and jokes. A table of strong caustic materials retrieves all subjects, death, Cardinal Mazarin, caution husbands or Mr. Lully. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        ... Opera omnia, cum novo eoque insigni augmento tractatuum hactenus ineditorum, & ex idiomate anglicano in latinum sermonem translatorum, opera Simonis Johannis Arnoldi, ecclesiae Sonnenburgensis inspectoris.

      Impensis Johannis Justi Erythropili, excudebat Christianus Goezius, 1694. Simon Johann Arnold's edition of Bacon's collected works, translated into Latin from the original English, published simultaneously at Leipzig and Copenhagen. Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), in addition to rising to the office of Lord Chancellor, was a prolific and lively-minded writer, noted by the Oxford Companion to English Literature as "capable of varied and beautiful styles" and as exhibiting "a peculiar magnificence and picturesqueness in much of his writing." This Opera is a more complete collection of Bacon's literary, scientific, and philosophical productions than the first, which was published in 1665. This offers evidence of early readership in form of underlining in ink and occasional marginal notations, confined to early portion of the tome.

Die Identifikation dieses Nachdrucks erfolgte erst vor einigen Jahren, so sind die JBdA aufgeführten Verkäufe von Exemplaren in diesem Einband wohl auch Nachdrucke von 1694. - Die von dem Bamberger Hofmeister Johann von Schwarzenberg ausgearbeitete und 1507 veröffentlichte Halsgerichtsordnung gilt als bahnbrechend für die deutsche Strafrechtsreform zu Beginn des 16. Jhdts. und als Vorbild für die "Carolina". Aus den anderen frühen, regionalen Strafgesetzbüchern ragt sie "wegen der geschickten Zusammenfassung des einheimischen Rechts mit den bereits eingedrungenen, fremden römisch-italienischen Rechtselementen" heraus (Kaspers 132). Angestrebt wird eine größere Rechtssicherheit im Inquisitionsprozess durch geregelte Ermittlungs- und Beweisverfahren, klar definierte Straftatbestände und Strafen, die der Größe der Schuld entsprechen (vgl. Kleinheyer-Schröder S. 238). Das Geständnis wurde als zentrales Beweismittel definiert und dementsprechend die Folter als Mittel zu seiner Förderung beschrieben. - Die Holzschnitte geben ein eindrucksvolles und anschauliches Bild der Strafverfolgung mit ihren einzelnen Elementen wie Verhaftung, Verhör und Folterungen, Urteilsfindung, Hinrichtungen, Kostenbegleichung etc. - Der Titelholzschnitt mit dem Wappen des Bischofs Johann Georg Zobel von Giebelstadt und der blattgr. Holzschnitt mit der Darstellung des Jüngsten Gerichts rühren von J. Amman her und wurden von L. Mayer geschnitten. Die übrigen Holzschnitte stammen zum großen Teil von den Stöcken der ersten Ausgabe 1507. - Etwas gebräunt, tls. leicht fleckig. Sehr gutes Exemplar! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Por Francisco Antonio de Burgos. New edition after the first edition of 1665 Rare. Parchment full contemporary. Smooth spine with title pen. Freckles scattered. Spanish prolific writer, Francisco Santos (1618-1696), who was his military state, is famous for his novels and short stories in which picaresque drew plenty Lesage for Gil Blas and his lame Devil. He defends the poor against the rich, and the humble against the wealthy, typical attitude of the picaresque novel, and reflects the Madrid and Spanish society. Most of the works of Santos are full of moral Christian and Catholic, and that spirit has led to this book, which departs from the strict domain of literature, the author is the defending champion of the Christian and Catholic doctrine. There are very interesting details about witches and customs of Madrid. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Due parti in un volume di cm. 37,5. Magnifica antiporta incisa in rame da Joseph Mulder (1658-1728) su disegno di Adrian Van Der Werff, raffigurante un tempio antico gremito di figure allegoriche della pittura e delle arti. Ritratto a piena pagina dell'Autore. Legatura coeva in piena pelle; dorso a sei nervi con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro agli scomparti, dentelles dorate e sguardie in bella carta marmorizzata. Tagli spruzzati e segnalibro in seta azzurra. Mancanze alle cuffie e all'ultimo scomparto, alcune spellature ai piatti, fenditure alle cerniere (piatti ben saldi). Lieve alone al margine inferiore (più evidente in alcune carte centrali) e sporadiche fioriture, peraltro nel complesso buon esemplare. Francois du Jon (1591-1677), nativo di Heidelberg, fu tra i pionieri della filologia germanica. Grazie alla frequentazione dell'amico Rubens e della sua ristretta cerchia di frequentazioni, maturò l'idea di scrivere questo monumentale trattato, considerato tra i principali contributi di storia dell'arte classica. Leopoldo Cicognara (Catalogo ragionato dei libri d'arte e d'antichità, nr. 148) lo definì come "il miglior libro che si conosca in questo genere, per cui il Dati sospese di pubblicare ulteriori Vite a quelle che diede alla luce, conoscendo di far cosa inutile, e che altri aveva ben esaurita". Lo stesso Julius von Schlosser, agli inizi del Novecento, paragonò l'importanza dell'opera di Du Jon a quella di Winckelmann. La seconda parte è una sorta di dizionario degli artisti dell'antichità classica. Seconda edizione, uscita postuma, ma rivista e aumentata dall'Autore. La prima del 1637, uscita in formato piccolo, era priva della seconda parte. Cfr. Iccu (che segnala due tirature del medesimo anno, una con 24 pagine preliminari e una con 32); Graesse, III, 499; Brunet, II, 599-600: "Bonne edition de cet ouvrage estime".. . . . . . 0. .
