        De Jure Naturali et Gentium, Juxta Disciplinam Ebraeorum, Libri...

      1695. A Profound Example of Seventeenth-Century Scholarship Selden, John [1584-1654]. De Jure Naturali et Gentium, Juxta Disciplinam Ebraeorum, Libri Septem. Accessit Novae Huic Editioni Index Accuratus. Leipzig and Frankfurt: Apud Jeremiam Schrey, 1695. [xlviii], 892, [27] pp. Copperplate frontispiece, 7 plates, 3 folding copperplates, woodcut text illustrations. Text in Latin, with numerous texts quoted first in Hebrew or Arabic. Quarto (8" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum, blind frames and large central arabesques to boards, raised bands, blind ornaments to spine, edges rouged. Moderate soiling and staining, moderate rubbing to boards, which are slightly bowed, corners and spine ends bumped, front joint cracked, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, front free endpaper lacking. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampstaining and foxing, some edgewear to frontispiece and edges of Plates 1 and 7, internally clean. * Fourth edition, one of two Schrey issues from 1695. First published in 1640, this is a landmark work in international law and natural law theory. It is also a fundamental work for a collection of Judaica. In Johnson's Memoirs of John Selden (1835), he describes this as "one of his most erudite works... Its design is supposed to have been suggested to him by Grotius's celebrated treatise `De Jure Belli et Pacis,' yet its method is totally different, and its motto from Lucretius, claims for its subject the merit of absolute novelty." This is also the work that caused John Milton to refer to Selden in Areopagitica as "the chief of learned me reputed in this land," and refers to "De Jure Naturali" as "that noble volume written by our learned Selden, of the Law of Nature and of Nations." Further, "De Jure Naturali" is named by Milton in Areopagitica as the source of his theistic conception of natural law and Samson names "the law of nature, law of nations" in his speech to Dalila at lines 890-91 in book two of Samson Agonistes. Finally, Milton makes extensive use of this work in all of his divorce tracts; this stands to reason, since the political argument of the fifth book of "De Jure Naturali" is to reform English marriage law.

        Catoptricae et dioptricae sphaericae elementa.

      Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1695. First edition of this rare work, famous today for its suggestion that an achromatic compound lens might be formed by combining simples lenses of different media. The use of 'achromatic doublets' was a crucial step in the further development of telescopes and microscopes. From Marischal College, Aberdeen, David Gregory (1659-1708) entered Edinburgh University, graduating M.A. on 28 November 1683. A month prior to his graduation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics, at one time occupied by his uncle, the great mathematician James Gregory, whose Optica promota (1663) had described a reflecting telescope which used parabolic mirrors. As a professor, David Gregory was the first to lecture publicly on the Newtonian philosophy. His lecture notes show that they covered a broad range of subjects including geodesy, optics, dynamics, and various branches of mathematics. Increasingly under attack by his fellow professors at Edinburgh for his radical political views, in 1691 he went to London where he was introduced to Newton and recommended to John Flamsteed, the first astronomer royal. In that same year, Edward Barnard retired from the Savilian professorship of Astronomy at Oxford; backed by Newton's recommendation of him as 'very well skilled in Analysis & Geometry both new & old ... understands Astronomy very well ... & is respected the greatest Mathematician in Scotland', and with Flamsteed's support, Gregory was elected to the chair in face of strong opposition from Edmond Halley. As Gregory tells us in the preface, the present work is the printed version of lectures delivered at Edinburgh in 1684, adapted to the teaching of Oxford undergraduates. The passage in which Gregory uses the analogy with the human eye to suggest the construction of an achromatic lens occurs on p. 98: in English translation, 'Perhaps it would be of service to make the object lens of a different medium, as we see done in the fabric of the eye; where the crystalline humour (whose power of refracting the rays of light differs very little from that of glass) is by Nature, who never does anything in vain, joined with the aqueous and vitreous humours (not differing from water as to their power of refraction), in order that the image may be painted as distinct as possible on the bottom of the eye.' Whiteside (DSB) suggests that Gregory may have had this insight from Newton. The work was reprinted at Edinburgh in 1713. An English translation followed two years later with notes by William Browne on refracting telescopes and microscopes; this was republished in 1735 by Desaguliers with an added appendix on the history of the reflecting telescope. In addition to the present work, Gregory published in 1684 at Edinburgh his Exercitatio geometrica de dimensione figurarum in which, with the assistance of his uncle's work, he extended the method of quadratures by infinite series; and in 1702 Astronomiae physicae & geometricae elementa, the first textbook of astronomy based on Newtonian gravitational principles. ESTC R16816; DSB V: 520-1; Honeyman 1550; Poggendorff I, 948; Vagnetti CB1. 8vo (177 x 110 mm), pp. [iv], 99, [1], with engraved vignette of Sheldonian Theatre on title and numerous woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary calf, hinges cracked but ties still strong, some chipping to capitals but a nice and unsophisticated copy.

        Commission for Greenwich Hospital.

      folio, 26(2)pp., including the final blank G2, printed largely in black letter, with a fine and large cut of the arms of King William III and a superbly ornamental initial letter 'W' at head of first leaf of text (A2), the title page simply lettered 'Commission for Greenwich Hospital', this rather soiled and foxed, some minor marginal soiling and defective corners, fairly recently well bound in morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered gilt. A good, large, copy. The Commission or Letter Patent, dated at the end, "at Westminster, the tenth day of September, in the seventh year of Our Reign", therefore seems to pre-date the Commission dated 12th March 1695 (i.e. 1696 according to Lady Day dating).

        An essay concerning humane understanding. In four books.

      London printed for Awnsham and John Churchil, at the Black Swan in Pater-Noster-Row, and Samuel Manship, at the Ship in Cornhill, near 1695 2º in 4s: [40],407,[1],[12, Index and publisher's advert]pp (91-94 mis-numbered 93-96; 121 mis-numbered 123), with engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by P. Vanderbanck after Sylvester Brounower. Recently rebound to period style by Clive Jones in full paneled calf, boards ruled and decorated in blind, spine in seven compartments between raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges speckled red. A Fine, bright, tight, clean copy (text block apparently washed), with loss of several letters P4 and closed tear, without loss, through several lines Hh. Provenance: Early ownership signatures (of H. Jowett and J. [probably John] Loxley) on front free end paper, placing this copy at Cambridge (respectively, Magdalene College and St. Catharine's College, dated "Novr 23rd 1830") and of Trafford Barriston to title page. Wing L2741. Yolton 63. Pforzheimer 599 and PMM 164 (for first edition). Fine Third Edition of the "most popular and enduring of all Locke's writings (Yolton)," a line-by-line reprint of the Second Edition (1694) with only minor adjustments and the errata corrected, but still with many misprints. First published in 1690, the Essay attracted immediate attention, both favorable and not, much of it directed toward Locke's concept of the mind as tabula rasa. "This was unacceptable?even shocking?to many of Locke's readers, including the most profound of his early critics, Leibniz. For Locke the human understanding was initially like 'white Paper, void of all Characters': all the ideas which it subsequently contains are derived from experience, either external or internal. The account of how the mind puts together various complex ideas from the material provided by sensation and reflection occupies Book 2, the longest in the Essay. Book 3 is on words, which have meaning only by acting as signs of ideas; Book 4 is on knowledge and opinion. . . . Perhaps the most original aspect of the Essay is, however, the conception of philosophy which it embodies. Locke abandoned the whole enterprise of first philosophy as practised from Aristotle to Descartes: he did not see himself as laying a metaphysical foundation on which natural philosophers could then build, but rather (as he put it in the 'Epistle to the Reader') 'as an Under-Labourer ? clearing Ground a little, and removing some of the Rubbish, that lies in the way to Knowledge'. (ODNB) In the substantially revised second edition, published May, 1694, the section in the chapter 'Of power' dealing with freedom was entirely recast, and there was a new chapter, 'Of identity and diversity', in which Locke equated personal identity with continuity of consciousness, and not with continuity of any spiritual substance." According to Pforzheimer, "The importance of few philosophical books have been so quickly recognized . . . It passed through many editions in English and has several times been translated." (Yolton tallies 56 different editions and translations by 1800, not counting abstracts and abridgments.) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Relation de Voyage Mysterieux de L'Isle de la Vertu, à Oronte.

      Paris: Christophe Remy, 1695. Small octavo; a very good copy in contemporary calf. Second edition of this rare spiritual romance. First published in Rouen in 1684, this educational novel is written as an allegorical voyage to the imaginary island of "Virtue" on the River Orontes, the chief Syrian river, and the standard route to Egypt since antiquity. The island proves to be a peaceful religious utopia, presented as a model for the reader. Its tenets are suggested by the work's preface, the poem "Epistre à Damon", that is, Damon of Syracuse, who selflessly pledged his life to Dionysus of Syracuse in return for the freedom of his friend.This work has long been attributed to Juan de Palafox y Mendoza (1600-1659), an important figure in Spanish Catholicism. He spent much of his life as envoy and bishop to Mexico, where his reluctance to convert by any means other than persuasion gained him the title "Protector to the Indians". He returned to Spain after a long-running dispute with the Jesuits, whose privileges he sought to temper. His writings, consisting largely of ascetic, pastoral, and historical treatises, were published in Madrid in the eighteenth century, not long after he narrowly missed out on canonisation. Slightly worn.

Contains letters 93-107, all numbered and with continous pagination.Leeuwenhoek was one of the first and greatest microbiologists. He discovered protozoa and bacteria and was the first to describe spermatozoa and red blood corpuscles. The first independent part of this celebrated collection of letters addressed to the Royal Society.These letters incorporate his epoch-making experiments with the MICROSCOPE, and his researches and discoveries opened up a new era of scientific investigation and earned him the title "Father of Protozoology and Bacteriology". Many of the letters are of outstanding importance and include his account of the animalcula. The personal copy of Thomas Molyneux (1661-1733), Irish physician, professor of Physic at Trinity College and fellow of the Royal Society of London. The visit of Molyneux to Leeuwenhoek's home in 1685 on behalf of the Royal Society to inspect his microscopes is well documented in the literature. Molyneux gave a report of his visit in a letter dated February 13, to the secretary of the Royal Society, Francis Aston. It was read at a February meeting: "I have hitherto delayed, answering your last, because I could not give you an account of Mynheer LEEWENHOECK; but last week I was to wait upon him in your name: he shewed me several things through his microscopes, which 'tis in vain to mention here, since he himself has sent you all their descriptions at large. As to his microscopes themselves, those, which he shewed me, in number at least a dozen, were all of one sort, consisting only of one small glass, ground, (this I mention because 'tis generally thought his microfcopes are blown at a lamp, those I saw, I am sure, are not) placed between two thin flat plates of brafs, about an inch broad, and an inch and a half long. In these two plates there were two apertures, one before, the other behind the glass, which were larger or smaller, as the glass was more or less convex, or as it magnified. Just opposite to these apertures on one side was placed sometimes a needle, sometimes a slender flat body of glass or opaque matter, as the occasion required, upon which, or to its apex, he fixes whatever object he has to look upon; then holding it up against the light, by help of two small screws, he places it just in the focus of his glass, and then makes his observations. Such were the microscopes, which I saw, and these are they he shews to the curious that come and visit him; but besides these, he told me he had another sort, which no man living had looked through setting aside himself; these he reserves for his own private observations wholly, and he assured me they performed far beyond any, that he had shewed me yet; but would not allow me a sight of them, so all I can do is barely to believe, for I can plead no experience in the matter. As for the microscopes I looked through, they do not magnify much, if anything, more than several glasses I have seen, both in England, and Ireland: but in one particular, I must needs say, they far surpass them all, that is in their extreme clearness, and their representing all objects so extrordinary distinctly, for I remember we were in a dark room with only one window, and the sun too, was then off of that, yet the objects appeared more fair and clear, then any I have seen through microscopes, though the sun shone full upon them, or though they received more then ordinary light by help of reflective specula or otherwise: So that I imagine 'tis chiefly, if not alone in this particular, that his glasses exceeds all others, which generally the more they magnify the more obscure they represent the object; and his only secret I believe, is making clearer glasses, and giving them a better polish then others can do. I found him a very civil complaisant man, and doubtless of great natural abilities; but, contrary to my expectations, quite a stranger to letters, master neither of Latin, French or English, or any other of the modern tongues besides his own, which is a great hindrance to him in his reasonings uppon his observations, for being ignorant of all other mens thoughts, he is wholly trusting to his own, which, I observe, now and then lead him into extravagancies, and suggest very odd accounts of things, nay, sometimes such, as are wholy irreconsileable with all truth. You see, Sir, how freely I give you my thoughts of him, because you desired it." (Dobell, p.57). Very Good.

        Innocentia vindicata, in qua gravissimis argumentis ex S. Thoma petitis oftenditur, Angelicum Doctorem pro Immaculato Conceptu Deiparae sensisse & scripsisse. Pars prior theologica.

      Excudebat Jacobus Muller., Abbey of St. Gall, Switzerland 1695 - The most important emblem book to be printed in Switzerland, and highly praised for its artistic sense, the book is ultimately a defense of the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, using the arguments of St. Thomas Aquinas and other sources. The first half is dedicated to the theological arguments, and the second half (the "Symbols") is comprised of 46 baroque emblems framed in elaborate cartouches, each depicting some quality of the Blessed Virgin. For example, the celebrated ship "Victoria" of Ferdinand Magellan is seen as a symbol of Mary's womb which preserves those on board despite the tempests of the sea. The engravings by Gabriel Ehinger were cut in Augsburg, but the book itself was printed at the ancient Monastery of St. Gall. Folio (33 x 21cm), folding frontispiece, 120pp., 46 plates. Frontispiece stained, with edgewear; occasional light foxing throughout, last two plates detached but present. Bound in contemporary vellum, joints cracked, split to lower and upper spine.

He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch.Pieter van der Aa began his career at Lieden in 1683 as a Latin trade publisher, publishing classical texts pertaining to medicine and science. As he progressed, he began to publish atlases and maps, compiling numerous multi-volume collections of works. His ambition to become Lieden's most famous printer was fulfilled in 1715 with his appointment to head printer for the city and its university. One of Pieter van der Aa's largest compilations relates to the history of Italy and Sicily, an area of immense personal interest. Though he took credit for many of his compilations, several, such as the Dutch collection of travels to the East and West Indies, were admittedly simple improvements to others' works."

        Tab.VI. Europae. totam Italiam ob oculos ponens

      Utrecht: Franciscus Halma. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Page measures 18" x 23.5". This striking circa 1695 map issued by Gerard Mercator depicts Italy in its entirety. This Ptolemaic map includes Corsica and parts of Sardinia and Sicily. It notes important towns, cities, islands, rivers, and other topographic features. Cities and mountains are beautifully rendered in profile.<br><br>First issued by Mercator in his 1578 edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", the map includes an ornate title cartouche and an interesting sea monster that appears to be a cross between a bird, a fish and a turtle. In good condition with minor wear and verso repair along the original centerfold. Some scuffing near borders in the lower left and right corners. Stain to lower left margin.<br><br> Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477.<br><br>Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

        De Jure Naturali et Gentium, Juxta Disciplinam Ebraeorum, Libri...

      , 1695. 1695. A Profound Example of Seventeenth-Century Scholarship Selden, John [1584-1654]. De Jure Naturali et Gentium, Juxta Disciplinam Ebraeorum, Libri Septem. Accessit Novae Huic Editioni Index Accuratus. Leipzig and Frankfurt: Apud Jeremiam Schrey, 1695. [xlviii], 892, [27] pp. Copperplate frontispiece, 7 plates, 3 folding copperplates, woodcut text illustrations. Text in Latin, with numerous texts quoted first in Hebrew or Arabic. Quarto (8" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine, front endleaves renewed. Light soiling, spine ends and corners bumped, boards slightly bowed, armorial bookplate to front pastedown, rear free endpaper neatly removed. Copperplate pictorial title page, main title page printed in red and black, woodcut decorate initials and text illustration. The plates depict the presentation of the Ten Commandments, elevations of the Temple of Jerusalem and praying angels in the Temple. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier on places, spark burns to a few leaves, woodcut ornament clipped from title page and replaced with blank paper at an early date, internally clean. A nice copy. * Fourth edition, one of two Schrey issues from 1695. First published in 1640, this is a landmark work in international law and natural law theory. It is also a fundamental work for a collection of Judaica. In Johnson's Memoirs of John Selden (1835), he describes this as "one of his most erudite works... Its design is supposed to have been suggested to him by Grotius's celebrated treatise `De Jure Belli et Pacis,' yet its method is totally different, and its motto from Lucretius, claims for its subject the merit of absolute novelty." This is also the work that caused John Milton to refer to Selden in Areopagitica as "the chief of learned me reputed in this land," and refers to "De Jure Naturali" as "that noble volume written by our learned Selden, of the Law of Nature and of Nations." Further, "De Jure Naturali" is named by Milton in Areopagitica as the source of his theistic conception of natural law and Samson names "the law of nature, law of nations" in his speech to Dalila at lines 890-91 in book two of Samson Agonistes. Finally, Milton makes extensive use of this work in all of his divorce tracts; this stands to reason

        Utrecht - Jan van Vianen + Caspar Specht/Reinier & Josua Ottens, 1725-1750.

      FRAAIE 17DE EEUWSE STADSPLATTEGROND VAN UTRECHT'Urbis Traiecti ad Rhenum novissima et accuratissima delineatioâ?' kopergravure gegraveerd door Jan van Vianen, uitgegeven door Casper Specht 1695, hier in een tweede staat uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Reinier en Josua Ottens tussen 1725-1750. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 49 x 57,5 cm.Linksboven staat dat Specht deze kaart heeft opgedragen aan het stadsbestuur. De tekst is omgeven door 42 familiewapens van leden van de Utrechtse vroedschap. Rechtsboven in een cartouche met mythische figuren, stad- en provinciewapen: 'De stad Utrecht is gesticht in 't jaar 60. Bemuert tot de groote als jegenwoordig in 't jaar 930. Groot in syn omgang binnen de Wallen 1300 roeden. Bevat in sig 12 kercken, 13 gasthuysen, 120 straten, 50 stene bruggen en ontrent 6000 huysen. Vermaert door d'Academie. Heeft de schoonste plantagien en Maaljebaan van gants nederland.â?'Hoe de werkverdeling is geweest bij de kaartvervaardiging is niet geheel duidelijk. De signering 'Jan V. Vianen fecitâ?' kan er op wijzen dat hij de kaart getekend en/of gegraveerd heeft. Maar het is ook mogelijk dat Caspar Specht niet alleen drukker-uitgever, maar ook als graveur is opgetreden. Jan van Vianen was een tekenaar en graveur die eind 17de eeuw voornamelijk is Haarlem werkte, maar die ook korte tijd in Amsterdam en Utrecht verbleef. Zijn graveurswerk bestaat uit diverse portretten, voorstelling van belangrijke eigentijdse gebeurtenissen en boekillustraties. Deze kaart is een incidenteel werkstuk van hem geweest in opdracht van Caspar Specht.Over de inhoud van deze vogelvluchtkaart is veel lovends te zeggen. Van de bestaande gedrukte kaarten van de stad Utrecht uit de 17de eeuw is er geen die cartografisch zo goed is als deze. De meetkundige verhoudingen van de grondvorm van de stad, alsmede van het gebied direct buiten de stadsmuur zijn veel beter alle andere. Of er sprake is geweest van een geheel nieuwe opmeting is moeilijk te zeggen; mogelijk is voor wat de grondvorm betreft mede gebruikt gemaakt van een twee decennia eerder bij de firma Specht gemaakte kaart.De in opstand getekende bijzondere bebouwing, (kerken, gasthuizen, poorten, enz.) is waarschijnlijk geheel in overeenstemming met de werkelijke situatie van 1695. Jan van Vianen zal kriskras door de stad getrokken zijn om schetstekeningen te maken van de diverse gebouwen die hij naderhand in zij atelier in het kaartbeeld inpaste. Niet waarheidsgetrouw is het ontbreken van ruïnes van gebouwen, die er toen wel degelijk waren (zoals bijvoorbeeld de St. Servaasabdij, het Wittevrouwenklooster en de Domkerk). Maar deze zijn natuurlijk opzettelijk weggelaten om het representatieve en decoratieve karakter van de kaart geen schade te doen.De woonhuizen zijn over het algemeen op uniforme wijze afgebeeld. De schaal waarop de kaart is getekend liet een verfijnde weergave, waarin de variatie in hoogte, breedte en diepte alsmede het verschil in de vorm van de daken van de diverse huizen, naar voren zou moeten komen ook moeilijk toe.De stad maakt een opvallend groene indruk door zowel in als buiten de stad getekende bomen en tuincomplexen. De weergegeven tuinpatronen zullen echter voornamelijk gefantaseerd zijn.Prijs: € 1.950,-.

A scarce edition of Selden's work on the laws of Jewish marriage and divorce, applying his more general theory of natural law, and approaching the views of Milton. It was first published in 1646. Speaking of this and other works dealing with Jewish customs the DNB says "[his] acquaintance with the original of the Old Testament and the ancient versions and commentaries which all these works display is very great. Their author's familiarity with rabbinical literature was such as has been acquired by few non-Israelite scholars; and many details of oriental civilisation and antiquities were certainly brought to the knowledge of Europeans for the first time in them" (DNB). Despite the importance of this work it was not translated into English until 1991. Dictionary of National Biography XVII:1157. Das Verzeichnis der im Deutschen Sprachraum Erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts 14:019894G.
