Really excellent contemporary dark sprinkled calf, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central fleuron and filigree cornerpieces, gilt titling (portions of the joints apparently repaired with great skill). Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of "Rolle" (see below). Lowndes I, 221; Wing B-3347. Short crack at top of rear joint, front board just slightly tending to splay, minor wear to corners and covers, but the attractive period binding entirely solid and generally very well preserved. Most of the rear free endpaper torn away, isolated rust spots and marginal stains, but VERY FINE INTERNALLY, the text unusually clean and fresh and printed within ample margins. This is a beautiful copy, with important provenance, of a survey of various poetic forms, coupled with short biographies of major ancient and modern poets. Politician and writer Thomas Blount (1649-97) begins by discussing things a poet should or should not do: he must keep his "wit and Fancy" within bounds, while still displaying a sense of humor; he should write about love but avoid "obscenity"; he should not be addicted to flattery. These admonitions are followed by an examination of various forms of poetry, from epics, elegies, and odes to burlesques, lampoons, and farces. The second half of the work, "Characters and Censures," contains 67 short biographies and critical evaluations of poets from Aeschylus to Shakespeare. The book relies he … [Click Below for Full Description]

TEXT AND IMAGES ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT, WITH 42 FINE PLATES AFTER ROMEYN DE HOOGHE with images providing instruction on preparing for one's death. Landwehr, "Romeyn de Hooghe," 84. Covers with small whitish patches, title page with faint brown stain to lower fore corner, two plates with small spot of foxing in margin, other equally trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE COPY, the plates clean, fresh, bright, and richly impressed, and the pleasant binding unworn. The text and the detailed, often fascinating engravings here provide meditations intended to help one prepare for death. The work is divided into three sections, each with a frontispiece and 13 plates. In each plate, we see a man on his sick bed, with putti hovering above him holding a picture depicting a scene from Christ's final days (first the Last Supper, then the Passion, finally the Crucifixion). There is always a helpful angel directing the invalid's attention to these images, and sometimes there are frightful demons tormenting the sufferer. The sickroom can be a messy place, and here we see priests, servants, and family members bumping into each other in their efforts to minister to the patient. In some scenes, servants, family, and a pet dog are sleeping by the sickbed; in others we see … [Click Below for Full Description]

Most of the rear free endpaper torn away, isolated rust spots and marginal stains, but VERY FINE INTERNALLY, the text unusually clean and fresh and printed within ample margins. This is a beautiful copy, with important provenance, of a survey of various poetic forms, coupled with short biographies of major ancient and modern poets. Politician and writer Thomas Blount (1649-97) begins by discussing things a poet should or should not do: he must keep his "wit and Fancy" within bounds, while still displaying a sense of humor; he should write about love but avoid "obscenity"; he should not be addicted to flattery. These admonitions are followed by an examination of various forms of poetry, from epics, elegies, and odes to burlesques, lampoons, and farces. The second half of the work, "Characters and Censures," contains 67 short biographies and critical evaluations of poets from Aeschylus to Shakespeare. … [Click Below for Full Description]

No place or name of printer, 1694.. FIRST EDITION 1694, small 8vo, 170 x 105 mm, 6¾ x 4¼ inches, engraved frontispiece of the King, pages: (2), iii-xvi, 320, with errata at foot of final page, bound in modern quarter calf over marbled sides, gilt dividing line, raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered title, all edges gilt.

A very good tight copy of a scarce work. First 3 words of title in Greek letters. The frontispiece which is an imitation of the one in Charles I's Eikon Basilike shows the King kneeling before a table covered with a cloth decorated with the fleur-de-lis and on which is a crown and sceptre; above and to his left is a female figure seated on a cloud, possibly one of his mistresses. "This is a malignant attack on Charles II, of unknown authorship, representing him as a Roman Catholic throughout. There are seventy-seven chapters, caricaturing the 'Eikon' and dealing with various episodes in the King's career, some of which have mock prayers at the end". See Madan, A New Bibliography of the Eikon Basilike, page 111, No. 132. Pages 309-315 contain two papers, found in the strong box and published in 1686, setting out the King's reasons for turning R … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLDER (William)
London Printed by J. Heptinstall for L. Meredith, 1694. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 171 x 104 mms., pp. [viii], 120, contemporary panelled calf. A fine copy, with the calligraphic autograph, probably contemporary, "Henry Wigley" on the top margin of the front paste-down end-paper, and "Berd. Whalley" on the top margin of the title-page. Wigley is probably the Reverend Henry Wigley of Pensham House, Worcestershire. Wigley was the grandfather, through his daughter, of Ambrose St. John (1815 - 1875), the Roman Catholic priest and headmaster, who was born in Islington, and this perhaps suggests an Islingtonian provenance for this book. In yet another hand, probably contemporary or early 18th century, are two salutary bromides: "It is very Rare, yt [that] either ye joy, or ye Benefit of an Estate infamously gotten, continues long." And: "To sleep, to eat, to drink, at other Peoples Hours [?House], to walk thier Pace & to Love & Hate as they do, is ye vilest of Servitudes." "Berd. Whalley" is possibly Bernard Whalley, correspondent of Alexander Pope and subscriber to Pope's translation of the Iliad, about whom very little is known. Holder (1615/16 - 1698) is also the author of Principles of Harmony, also published in 1694. Robert Poole in his ODNB article on Holder notes, " Holder's subsequent Discourse Concerning Time (1694), written to explain the issue of calendar reform and reissued in 1701 after the renewed English rejection of the Gregorian calendar, was an elegant exposition of the concept of harmony on a cosmic scale. In it he developed the idea that rational human perception was … [Click Below for Full Description]

TEMPLE, (WILLIAM F.).
Haag, chez A. Moetjens, 1694. 12:o. (16),480,(4) s. Samtida lite nött och snedläst pergamentbd. Någon enstaka småfläck och lite naggad i yttermarginalen på s. 479-80. Med Tho. Wadenstiernas och J. G. Sacks namnteckningar, den förstnämnda daterad 1705, den senare Stockholm den 15 april 1729. Ur Bergshammarbiblioteket med dess tryckta biblioteksetikett överst på ryggen. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 8464 för det engelska originalet. De avslutande två bladen är en förlagskatalog från Adrian Moetjens. Översättning av "Memoirs of what past in christendom, from the war begun 1672 to the peace concluded 1679" (1691), vilken rör krigen mellan England och Holland på 1670-talet. William Temple (1628-99) var brittisk statsman och författare. Thomas Wadenstierna (1684-1728) reste utomlands 1705, var vice häradshövding i Hälsingland och senare notarie i hovrätten. Antagligen såldes hans böcker på auktion i Stockholm 1729, där kammarherren Johan Gabriel Sack (1697-1751) köpte boken. Det tycks inte finnas någon tillgänglig uppgift om denna auktion på annat håll. Sack byggde tillsammans med sin fru Eva Bielke upp ett stort arkiv och bibliotek på sitt sörmländska gods Bergshammar. Han är begravd i Fogdö kyrka med en epitafium i stenstil författat av vännen Carl Gustaf Tessin. Större delen av biblioteket förvärvades av Björck & Börjesson på 1930-talet.
