BOETHIUS
1695 1ed English BOETHIUS Consolation of Philosophy Medieval Free Will Preston “Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it.” Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy “A golden volume not unworthy of the leisure of Plato or Tully.” – Edward Gibbon A rare edition of “The Consolation of Philosophy” by Boethius, a work that has been described as “the single most important and influential work on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity and is the last great Western work of the Classical Period.” (‘Consolation of Philosophy’, Oxford 2000, introduction). This work in an imaginary dialogue between Boethius and the personification of philosophy, arguing that there is a higher power. Boethius engages questions such as the nature of predestination and free will, why evil men often prosper and good men fall into ruin, human nature, virtue, and justice. This 1695 edition is a rare analysis and commentary of the poetry of Boethius by Richard Graham, Lord Viscount of Preston, who supplemented his English translation with notes. It is the first edition of one of the best modern English translations. This translation is highly regarded because of the preface, which is filled with important allusions and ironic complaints against his judges who were too critical of him. Item number: #3304 Price: $950 BOETHIUS Anicius Manlius Severinus Boetius, Of the consolation of philosophy : in five books.

TSCHIRNHAUS (E. W.).
Lipsiae, apud J. Thomam Fritsch, 1695. 2 parties en 1 volume in-4. 14ff. 296pp. et 2ff. 64pp. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque). Première Edition Collective des deux principaux ouvrages du mathématicien et philosophe allemand Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus (1631-1708), intitulés "Medicina Mentis" et "Medicina Corporis". Cet ami de Spinoza et surtout de Leibniz avec lequel il entretint une correspondance suivie, laissa notamment diverses avancées en mathématiques et en optique ainsi que l'invention de la porcelaine, dont le mérite est souvent attribué à son collaborateur Böttger. Dans cet ouvrage il expose son système philosophique qui s'appuyait en grande partie sur la logique et qui annonce la philosophie des Lumières. "[Medicina Mentis] doit servir à fonder une méthode scientifique et à corriger l'esprit humain; à produire un art d'inventer et de découvrir, en même temps qu'un art de guérir l'intelligence en la délivrant de tous les genres d'erreurs" (Franck). Diverses figures gravées sur bois dans le texte. Rousseurs prononcées. Cf. Franck, Dictionnaire des Sciences Philosophiques. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

William Camden, Edmund Gibson
London : Printed by F Collins, for A Swalle; and A & F Churchil; published by Edmund Gibson, 1695 A good copy of the 2nd edition in English, and the first Gibson edition of Camden's Britannia. In contemporary full leather binding with frontispiece, 50 maps by Robert Morden, 8 full page plates of coins, and 1 further full page plate. William Camden is said to be the first English topographer and the first issues of his work in latin (first edition with maps 1607) caused land disputes because the maps showed details of enclosures.

The contents are complete and generally clean with the odd mark or stain.

LA HIRE (Philippe de).
A Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, et se vend chez Jean Anisson Directeur de ladite Imprimerie, 1695. in-12. 6ff. 492pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque restaurée). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage de Philipe de La Hire (1640-1718), un des meilleurs géomètres français de cette période. "The important 'Traité de mécanique' that La Hire published in 1695 represents a synthesis of his diverse theoretical and practical preoccupations. Although passed over by the majority of the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. La Hire thus partially answered the wish expressed by Colbert in 1675 of seeing the Academy produce an exact description of all the machines useful in the arts and trades. La Hire furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion (already made in his Traité des épicycloides) following Desargues, of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels" (DSB). On y trouve notamment un grand nombre d'instructions pour la construction de diverses machines: "Machine à faire mouvoir plusieurs Scies pour scier la pierre", "Roue à élever des Pistons", "Instrument pour jeter les Bombes", etc. Le livre est illustré de plus de 150 figures dans le texte. Mouillure dans la marge supérieure, cachet ancien sur le titre. DSB, VII, 576-9. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Aa, van der Peter (1695 - 1733) Leiden
Artist: Aa van der Peter ( - 1733) Leiden; issued in: Leiden; date: ca 1706, 1695. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 35,5 x 45; - description: Description of the traval from Franciscus Draak in the Caribbean on 27 pages and a content index. Content: (1 title page, 4 representation of St. Domingo, St. Juan). - vita of the artist: Pieter van der Aa ( 1659 - 1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. 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 Leiden 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 Leiden'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.

Camden first published this book in Latin in 1586, dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and an English edition did not appear until early 17th-century. It gained immense popularity, both in its original printing and English forms. The original 1610 English translation is considered inferior to this 1695 Gibson edition. It was filled with errors and inaccuracies that Gibson did not include in this printing. (Oxford DNB). However, this incredible edition includes impressive engravings including some of the earliest views of Stonehenge and ancient coins and artifacts!

It was immensely popular throughout Europe and was reissued in many languages for centuries.

1695. SFONDRATI, CAELESTINO (1644-1696). Innocentia vindicata, in qua gravissimis argumentis ex S. Thoma petitis oftenditur, Angelicum Doctorem pro Immaculato Conceptu Deiparae sensisse & scripsisse. Pars prior theologica. Abbey of St. Gall, Switzerland: Excudebat Jacobus Muller, 1695. First Edition. 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.

BEAUVAIS, Gilles-François.
Borba de Moraes, p. 93; De Backer & Sommervogel I, col. 1080, 4; Chadenat 754; not in Bosch; Sabin. First edition of a French biography of the Jesuit martyr Ignacio de Azevedo, by Father Gilles-François Beauvais (1695-1773), who modelled his book on the Italian biography by Father Cabral (pseudonym of Giulio Cesare Cordara) (1704-1785), published at Rome in 1743 under the title Relazione della vita e martirio del venerabile padre Ignazio de Azevedo. In the present biography, dedicated to King Stanislaus I of Poland, Beauvais made several additions, for example the "Martyre du Vénérable Père Diaz et de ses Compagnons", pp. 193-262. Most of the book is devoted to the life of the martyr Ignatius de Azevedo from Porto (1528-1570), who worked in Brazil as Visitator for the Jesuit Order. On 15 July 1570, he and his 39 companions at sea were killed by French Calvinist pirates near the Canary Islands. In 1854, these "40 martyrs of Brazil" were canonized. Beauvais's biography may be regarded as a loose translation, with additional material, of Cordara's biography, which was translated into Spanish in the same year and into German in 1856. A second edition of Beauvais's version was published at Brussels in 1854. The martyrdom of Ignacio de Azevedo and his companions has inspired many literary works up to the present day. Some faint marginal stains, a small corner of the last 2 leaves (and larger corners of the following endleaves) restored, not approaching the text. Boards scratched. In good condition.

CAMDEN, William
1695 1ed William Camden Britannia Great Britain MAPS Stonehenge Queen Elizabeth “The early bird gets the worm.” – William Camden An exceedingly rare and valuable first edition of William Camden’s ‘Britannia’ translated and edited by Edmund Gibson. This work is considered one the greatest achievements of English scholarship and is the first topographical survey of Great Britain! Camden first published this book in Latin in 1586, dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and an English edition did not appear until early 17th-century. It gained immense popularity, both in its original printing and English forms. The original 1610 English translation is considered inferior to this 1695 Gibson edition. It was filled with errors and inaccuracies that Gibson did not include in this printing. (Oxford DNB). However, this incredible edition includes impressive engravings including some of the earliest views of Stonehenge and ancient coins and artifacts! This book was the first to show a study of Roman Britain, and was the first county-by-county survey of Great Britain.

Collated perfect with Huntington Library copy (373880)… Bound in contemporary full spotted calf, re-backed with the original back-strip laid down. Blind double-fillet border along top, bottom and fore-edge, and blind floral roll along spine. Gilt roll on sides of covers. On the spine, five raised bands. Panels with gilt double fillet border, corner-ornaments and coronetted central ornament. Title-piece red (later) in second panel. At the head and tail, gilt roll of vertical strokes. Edges of text-block speckled red. Re-backed with the original back-strip laid down. Fore-corners repaired, slightly bumped. Front cover worn at edge (ca. 1/2”). Scratches to covers. Residue of paper on covers near spine-edge. Binding tight. Good margins. Text quite fresh, notwithstanding of some faint occasional dampstaining to the lower fore-corners. Small diagonal tear at lower spine-edge of Ccc3 (pp. 381/382), just barely affecting the text. Fine impression of the frontispiece portrait. With a shard of a manuscript document (in a secretarial hand) laid in between Xx3 and Xx4. The Essay is Locke’s response to Bacon’s challenge to describe the nature of knowledge in the face of the divine. In it, he rejects the principle of innate (in-born) ideas, arguing instead that knowledge and understanding come to us through impressions throughout our lives. As a result, Locke argues, there are no genuinely “universal” truths. This argument, inter alia, which refuted a grea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printer's waste endpapers. Includes Some Further Thoughts Concerning the Education of Children at rear, with caption title on leaf F4r. Mild toning throughout, and a single wormhole through the bottom right corner of the text block. Else a neat, pleasing copy of this important and early work on education, which ESTC lists at only 6 institutions in the US. Fully self-educated, Tryon was determined to improve English children's access to schooling in the humanities and sciences. Influenced by the works of Agrippa and Pythagoras, he believed that individuals' bodily and intellectual well-being were tied. One could not learn properly if hungry, tired, or under physical duress; in this sense, A New Method of Educating Children revised the Latin grammar school tradition of ruling classrooms by the rod. "The Master and Tutors shall neither Whip, Beat, nor shew Anger or Passion toward any child, be he never so dull: But instead of such correction shall take the dull Child aside, and Commend and Praise him for his Endeavors; inform him of how many men of mean Birth have advanced themselves...and by these Means they shall excite and prompt him on to an honorable Ambition." For Tryon, instructors succeed in properly shaping children's minds when they recall that their students are in fact children. "The bodies and … [Click Below for Full Description]

GREGORY, David.
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.

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. <br/><br/> As Gregory tells us in the preface, the … [Click Below for Full Description]
