Camden, William
F. Collins for A. Swalle, London. Morden, Robert. First edition of Gibson's translation. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, 50 double-page and folding maps (3) by Robert Morden and others, 9 full-page engraved plates of coins and antiquities, numerous woodcuts and some engravings in the text, including a half-page engraving of Stonehenge, woodcut initials. 1 vols. Folio. The Preferred English Translation of Camden's Britannia. The first edition of Edmund Gibson's English translation of Camden's Britannia, one of the great achievements of English scholarship, the first comprehensive topographical survey of Great Britain, and a book of the greatest importance to the development of the nation's self image. Camden's work first appeared in Latin in 1586 in a thick octavo volume dedicated to Lord Burghley. "It received immediate recognition ? and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity ? Throughout the decades after its first appearance Camden continued to revise the text and experiment with the work's format and apparatus, and he worked closely with Holland on the 1610 translation. In spite of the author's collaboration, however, the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695. By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Sa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Encompassing study of the Ottoman Empire in the late 17th century, at a time when its power in Europe was waning, but it remained a force to be reckoned with. Rare, especially when including the 4th volume ("Suite de l'Etat general de l'Empire otoman [...] Quatrieme tome") which contains accounts of the state of the Greek, Armenian and Maronite churches in the Ottoman Empire. "According to the Gennadius Library, this was translated by Petis de la Croix and edited by La Croix. In fact the privilege is ceded to La Croix, former secretary of the French embassy at Constantinople. It seems likely that there must be a family connection between the two, although the original family of Petis de la Croix was Petis, not La Croix" (Atabey). - Binding slightly rubbed, but on the whole in good condition.

HOBBES, Thomas / [PIVAL, Guéroult de], BOULAINVILLIERS, Henri de / BURNET, Gilbert
An interesting sammelband of works in French with false London imprints. The first part contains the anonymous Doutes sur la religion (often attributed to Guéroult de Pival) and Boulainvilliers's analysis of Spinoza's Tractatus. 'Boulainvilliers by his own account was deeply shocked when he first encountered Spinoza's thought; and his original purpose in studying the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, apparently around 1695, was to identify weak points and compose an effective refutation. Though initially intended for publication Boulainvilliers's critique of the Tractatus failed to appear and long lay buried among his private papers' (Jonathan Israel, Radical Enlightenment, pp. 566-7). First edition. Van der Linde 376. Wolf Collection 768. BOUND NEXT is the first edition of the first (and apparently still the only) French translation of Hobbes's Humane Nature, or, the Fundamental Elements of Policie (1650), the first part of his Elements of Law, itself his first political work. Though the translation was anonymous, Diderot attributed it to Holbach (letter to Naigeon, April 1772). BOUND LAST is a purported translation of a work by Gilbert Burnet, Bishop of Salisbury (1643-1715), subtitled 'Examen de la religion, don’t on cherche l’éclaircissement de bonne foi. Attribué à Mr. de St. Evremond'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 3 works in one volume, 8vo, [iv], 103, [ii], iv, 171, [iv], 143, [1] pp., contemporary speckled boards, spine label lettered 'Poligraphes Nro. 1.', rubbed, one gathering in the first work browned, otherwise very good copies.

Ca. 63 x 46 cm.With the arrival of the Europeans, Mulkirigala was named as Adam's Berg.

APPENDIX juris canonici: continens librum septimum Decretalium et Ioannes Paulus LANCELOTTUS, Institutiones juris canonici (Leipzig 1695), Sehr wichtige, einzig kritische Herausgabe des Corpus juris canonici durch die Gebrüder PITHOU. Seit der Herausgabe des offiziellen päpstlichen Textes des Corpus juris canonici im Jahre 1582 waren textkritische Arbeiten von den wachsamen, zensorischen Augen der Kirche begleitet. Textkritik im Rahmen des nun festgelegten Textes war zwar möglich, aber eine unvoreingenommene wissenschaftliche Texterarbeitung wie etwa am Corpus juris civilis war gefährlich, für berufliche Ambitionen äußerst hinderlich. Gleichwohl wurde auch am Corpus juris canonici textkritisch weitergearbeitet Diese Forschungsarbeiten erreichten mit den Gebrüdern PITHOU, Schüler des berühmten Jacobus Cuiacius an der Universität Bourges, ihren Höhepunkt. Die Ausgabe wurde erstmals 91 Jahre nach Fertigstellung der Arbeiten im Jahre 1687 ediert. Dies auch ein Ergebnis römisch=päpstlicher Einschüchterung. Mit dieser Ausgabe erhielt die wissenschaftliche Welt eine späte Arbeitsgrundlage: "Exemplar Romanum secuti sumus correctionibus emendatum...", versichert das Vorwor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1695. ______ Format : In-12. [164 x 92 mm] Collation : (12), 492 pp. Reliure : Veau moucheté, dos à nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Première édition de ce manuel de mécanique pratique. Nombreuses illustrations dans le texte. Reliure restaurée, très légères traces d'humidité en marge des 10 derniers feuillets. Bon exemplaire. *-------* First edition of this manual of practical mechanics. Many illustrations in text. "The important "Traité de mécanique" that La Hire published in 1695 represents a synthesis of his diverse theorical and practical preoccupations. Although passed over by the majority of the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the eloboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. (...) On the theorical plane, La Hire's treatise was already out of date at the time of its apparence because it ignored Newton's laws of dynamics and the indispensable infinitesimal methods. On the other hand, while La Hire did not tackle the problem of energy, he furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestions of adopting an epicycloidal profile for gear wheels." DSB 7, 578. Binding restored, light tracks of dampstaining on the last 10 leaves, good copy.

Gremio De Impresores
Imprenta De Manuel Román., Zaragoza 1695 - 4 hojas. Bonito grabado en la primera y páginas orladas. =El villancico como forma literario-musical nació en el siglo XV. En el siglo XVII aparece ya plenamente consolidado como una forma poético-musical con texto en lengua vulgar y propósito religioso. Los villancicos, literariamente considerados, son un tipo de literatura popular clasificable dentro del género de "literatura de cordel", a pesar de su carácter sacro. En Zaragoza, la impresión de libretos para villancicos comienza a finales del siglo XVII. Los texto que se imprimían eran fundamentalmente villancicos de navidad, extendiéndose después a festividades como Santo Dominguito de Val. El texto que ofrecemos es totalmente raro por su propósito de celebrar la fiesta del gremio de impresores. 8º [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

. Uncoloured engraved map of the Azores. Amsterdam: Joannes Loots ca. 1695. 40,5 x 52 cm. Margins with repairs and a few tears. * As mathematical and nautical instrument maker, Loots also published manuals on navigation. For a time he was in partnership with an engraver, A de Winter, and an author of text books on charts, Claes de Vries, who had ambitions to publish a very large sea atlas of some 200 charts but this was never completed on the scale contemplated. Some of their charts were sold to Gerard van Keulen and others were used in a sea atlas published in 1697. Charts by Loots also appear in a number of other pilot books and sea atlases of the time..

Spener, Philipp Jakob
Olms Verlag, Frankfurt a.M. . Reprint: Hildesheim 2010. Eingeleitet von Alexander Bitzel. 1695 - XV/36/1116 S. Philipp Jakob Spener (1635-1705), der in der Übergangszeit vom 17. zum 18. Jahrhundert zu den einflußreichen Persönlichkeiten nicht nur des deutschen geistigen Lebens gehörte, hat den Pietismus, der das konfessionelle Zeitalter mit ablöste, grundsätzlich und in die Praxis hinein geformt. Als führender Theologe des deutschen Luthertums hat er zu neuen Gestaltungen des Protestantismus hingeführt und tief auf das ganze Geistesleben gewirkt. Nicht nur die Kirchen- und Theologiegeschichte empfingen von ihm neue Impulse, sondern auch die Literatur-, die Philosophiegeschichte seit Leibniz und nicht zuletzt die Sozialgeschichte. Die beginnende Aufklärung, die Spener als einen Exponenten des Fortschritts im öffentlichen Leben begrüßte, hat, wenn auch unter anderer Akzentuierung, die bei ihm beginnende Ethisierung des Christentums weitergetrieben.
