MARSHAM, John
officina Leonardi Strick bibliopolae. 1696 Marsham Chronicus Canon Jewish & Egyptian RITES Hebrew Greek Latin John Marsham was a 17th-century English historian known for his expertise and study on chronology from Old Testament history to Egypt and British. His most detailed and elaborate work was Chronicus Canon ; a work which distinguished Hebrew, Greek, and Egyptian histories and how they pertained to the Old Testament. According to the NGBD, Marsham, in this work, was the first person who proposed to the learned world the hypothesis of four collateral dynasties of Egyptian kings, reigning at the same time over different districts of that country; in order to reduce the extravagant chronology of the Egyptian records to a conformity with that of the Hebrew Scriptures. He also supposes that the Jews derived several of their rites from the Egyptians Item number: #8179 Price: $950 MARSHAM, John D.

Sir David Lindsay was a Scottish poet and Lyon king of arms. The Lyon King of Arms was the highest heraldic office. His poetry reflects the spirit of the Renaissance, specifically as a makar. Of Lindsay's poems, he gained a great reputation for his writings. His longer poems represent the range of his literary talent. Lindsay's writings are regarded to be the first literary expression in Scotland of the Renaissance. Works to this volume include 'Of the Monarchie', 'Of the Papingo' and 'To The King's Grace'.

DALE, Antonius van
Amstelodami: Henricum & viduam Theodori Boom, 1696. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Antonius van Dale was a 17th-century Dutch preacher who is best remembered for his sermons and writings on superstitions, witch-hunts, and the supernatural. In 1696, Dale published his work 'Dissertations on the Origins of Idolatry and Superstitions'. In this book, Dale considered the nature of true and false prophecy according to the Old and New Testaments. He also sought to dismiss the influence of Satan and the existence of miraculous and supernatural events. Because of this, this work was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1737. This work was also known to be owned and referenced by John Locke. (Harrison/Laslet 907a). [Attributes: First Edition]

London Goodwin, 1696. First English edition. 8vo, engraved additional title, signature to title-page, 8 folding plates, bookseller's advertisement leaf; contemporary speckled calf, minor worming towards end, rebacked, a very good copy. Dumont (1667-1727) left France to take up service in Germany in the Palatinate. The German campaigns in which he took part form the basis of part of the present work, which he augments with accounts of his travels elsewhere in the Balkans. He was created Baron de Carlscroon in 1725 in recognition of his services. The plates mostly depict Levantine character figures and genre scenes, including Greek and Turkish dances, which are not in the French editions.

Paolo PETRINI (Attivo a Napoli fine del XVIII secolo)
Pianta prospettica di Napoli, per la prima volta stampata nel 1696. Esemplare della terza edizione, con l'imprint Napoli febbraio 1748. La veduta di Petrini è la prima carta sciolta di grande impegno editoriale prodotta a Napoli a chiari fini commerciali. Benché sia evidente la sua derivazione dalla grande veduta seicentesca di Orlandi - Perrey - Baratta, questa pianta, con la sua particolare costruzione geografica, diverrà a sua volta un prototipo di riferimento per la successiva produzione cartografica. La veduta è dedicata al marchese Pompeo Azzolini, nipote del potente cardinale romano Decio Azzolini e capitano della Guardia del Vicerè Medinaceli, che morirà nel 1696. Fra il 1967 e il 1698, la mappa fu implementata con l'inserimento di ventuno scorci della città a far da cornice alla grande veduta centrale e forse solo in quel momento fu destinata al mercato. Il delineatore sia della veduta centrale che di quelle di contorno fu Francesco Cassiano de Silva, che ne curò probabilmente anche il passaggio in lastra. Sulla sinistra e al centro, due cartigli decorativi con dedica e titolo, entrambi ornati con figure, decorazioni floreali e, su quello a sinistra, uno stemma. Incisione all'acquaforte, finita a bulino. Coloritura antica con alcuni ritocchi, in buone condizioni. Rara. "Rare bird's eye view of Naples, first published in 1696. Example of the third edition, with the imprint ""Napoli 1748"". Petrini's view is the first map of great editorial work produced in Naples for clear commercial purposes.

Giovanni Francesco PACI
1696. In alto al centro, nel riquadro centrale contenente la pianta prospettica della città, si trova inciso il titolo: La città di Napoli: Circondano la pianta 17 vedute raffiguranti luoghi della città e le isole di Ischia e di Procida. In basso al centro è inciso un cartiglio, privo id iscrizioni. Sotto la veduta prospettica si trova una legenda numerica composta da 85 rimandi a luoghi notabili della città. Nell'angolo inferiore destro l'imprint editoriale: Si Stampano, e si vendono dal Stampator Paci a S. Biagio Maggiore. Acquaforte. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con margini, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Leggere pieghe di carta nella parte inferiore destra. Sconosciuta pianta prospettica della città di Napoli, stampata dall'editore e libraio napoletano Giovanni Francesco Paci. L'opera si presenta priva di data, ma l'attività editoriale dell'editore Giovan Fancesco Paci (con sede in Napoli in S. Biagio dei Librai) la colloca all'ultimo decennio del XVII secolo. Per l'analisi di questa carta, non descritta in nessuna delle bibliografie sulla città da noi consultate, non si può prescindere dall'esame della nota carta "gemella" di Paolo Petrini (anch'egli stampatore a S. Biagio dei Librari in Napoli), datata dai repertori al 1696-98 (cfr. Bellucci-Valerio, n. 97). Dal punto di vista cartografico le due opere derivano dalla grande pianta prospettica di Alessandro Baratta (1627 e successive repliche). Le vedute che circondano la pianta prospettica (in entrambe le opere) sono invece disegnate da Francesco C … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo Maria CORONELLI (Ravenna 1650 - Venezia 1718)
1696. "Interessante folio tratto dal primo volume del celebre ""Isolario dell'Atlante Veneto"" di V. Coronelli, edito a Venezia nel 1696. Il folio, corrispondente alle pagine 113 e 114, e contiene, inserite nel testo, due tavole calcografiche raffiguranti rispettivamente: una pianta con rilievo dell'isola di Capri e una veduta prospettica della città di Napoli. La tavola (280x210 mm) di Capri mostra l'isola sia in pianta che in scorcio da Nord. Riporta segnata la Grotta Azzurra con l'antico nome di Grotta Gràdola, dal vicino omonimo scalo antico, mentre il monte S. Michele è riportato come Monte Calvario e sulla cima è piantata una grande croce. La veduta di Napoli del Coronelli (312x173 mm) , è ripresa dall'immagine pubblicata nella ""Guida dei Forestieri..."" di Pompeo Sarnelli (1649-1724) pubblicata da Antonio Bulifon nel 1685. Coronelli utilizzerà la stessa veduta anche nella sua raccoltà Città e fortezze d'Europa; nel Teatro delle città, entrambe del 1697, infine, nella serieTeatro della Guerra, del 1707-1708, con la differenza che nell'Isolario e nel Teatro della Guerra la veduta viene pubblicata priva di dedica e di legenda nella parte inferiore. (cfr. Bellucci - Valerio, 2007, p. 156 n. 95) Il folio è in ottimo stato di conservazione"

Giacomo Filippo AMETI
Acquaforte e bulino, 1696. Magnifica prova, intagliata su quattro matrici, impressa su carta vergata coeva ed unita. Esemplare con coloritura coeva dei contorni, con margini, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l'ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) affida l'incarico di formare il catasto dell'Agro Romano a diversi topografi ed agronomi, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il rilievo migliore, oltre a quello di Giovan Battista Cingolani, fu opera dell'Ameti, che realizzò due grandi carte della parte settentrionale e meridionale della provincia di Roma. L'opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzò nel 1666. Rispetto alla Tavola esatta dell'antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma del Mattei, il rilievo dell'Ameti rivela fondamentali analogie in tutti gli elementi del contenuto, compresi i riferimenti all'età classica, alle strade ecc., mentre sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e differenze più notevoli sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e sub costiera. La carta del Lazio, dedicata al cardinale Pietro Ottoboni, è anteriore di tre anni e presenta notevoli migliorie nel rilievo delle Paludi Pontine, dove anche l'idrografia è notevolmente diversa. Le carte dell'Ameti furono inserite, assieme a quella del Mattei, nella seconda edizione del Mercurio Geografico, atlante della tipografia De Rossi.

DALE, Antonius van
Henricum & viduam Theodori Boom. 1696 1ed Dutch van Dale on Idolatry & Superstition Devil Magic Prophecy BANNED Antonius van Dale was a 17th-century Dutch preacher who is best remembered for his sermons and writings on superstitions, witch-hunts, and the supernatural. In 1696, Dale published his work Dissertations on the Origins of Idolatry and Superstitions . In this book, Dale considered the nature of true and false prophecy according to the Old and New Testaments. He also sought to dismiss the influence of Satan and the existence of miraculous and supernatural events. Because of this, this work was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1737. This work was also known to be owned and referenced by John Locke.

He published 'The Art of Fencing' which, according to Castle, is perhaps "the soundest treatise on practical fencing" and that subsequent books on the French school of fencing are merely imitations of Labat's. Labat claimed that the French school reformed and augmented the Italian methods. (Kirkland)This two-part first edition includes both of Labat's works on fencing - 'Art of Fencing' and 'Questions on Art of Fencing'. 'Questions' was published in 1701 and was a follow up on his widely popular treatise on sword fighting. The two treatises together are extremely valuable and markedly rare.Item number: #7578Price: $1500LABAT, Jean-BaptisteL'Art en fait d'armes ou de l'epée seule, avec les attitudes, dedié à Monseigneur le comte d'Armaignac, ...

the Honourable Society for Improving in the Knowledge of Agriculture.
1696. ont> Robert Fleming : Edinburgh Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of this scarce work regarding husbandry, fallowing and grass-seeds. A fascinating insight into eighteenth century agriculture, and one of the earliest Scottish works on flax and hemp. The author of this work is still disputed today. The ESTC notes that it is 'variously attributed to Richard Bradley and William Macintosh' (of Borlum). Others widely attribute this work to the aristocrat and agricultural reformer, Sir Thomas Hope. The title page notes that this work was written by the 'Honourable Society for Improving in the Knowledge of Agriculture'. The society was the first agricultural society founded in Great Britain. Sir Thomas Hope was the first president of the Society, with Maxwell as secretary, which is why the work is considered to be by them. Chapters 5-8 incorporate Lewis Crommelin's essay towards improving the manufacturing of hempen and flaxen in Ireland. Crommelin was the director of an Irish linen business following his exile from France. Following the 1696 parliament act admitting all products of hemp and flax to be duty free from Ireland to England, he ordered looms from Flanders and Holland. He was intrinsic to the introduction of Huguenot weavers to Ireland. His writings, which are cited in this work, was one of the earliest Irish books on Irish industry. Collated, complete with seven plates (six folding). Contemporary ink inscription to the title page of Henry Richmond Brougham. This may well be the same of Highhead Castle, Cumberland.

THEVENOT (Melchisédech).
T. Moette, 1696. THEVENOT (Melchisédech). L’Art de nager démontré par figures avec des avis pour se baigner utilement. [Paris, T. Moette, 1696]. In-12 rel. pl. veau orné du temps, 47 pp. & 35 figures hors-texte. Edition originale de ce précoce manuel de natation, le premier en français consacré à la pratique de la nage, bien complet de ses 35 étonnantes gravures hors-texte. Melchisédech Thévenot (1620-1692), écrivain et physicien français, fut aussi un infatigable voyageur, inventeur du niveau à bulle, cartographe, diplomate et bibliothécaire du roi. Son Art de Nager paraît pour la première fois à Paris en 1696, il est traduit en anglais dès 1699 (Benjamin Franklin, nageur enthousiaste, serait l'un de ses lecteurs). Deux nouvelles éditions paraîtront en France au cours du XVIIIe siècle, chacune augmentée de dissertations qui en explorent l'histoire et les ramifications. C'est par le biais de ce livre que la brasse se répand en Europe et que les Français, pendant près d'un siècle, apprennent à nager. Envisagé d’avantage sous l’aspect d’un traité de survie en milieu aquatique qu’un manuel d’activité sportive, l’ouvrage n’en est pas moins très complet sur le sujet. Même si vous n’êtes pas un marin au long cours ou un militaire de carrière, savoir nager vous sera bien utile en cas d’inondation brutale de votre maison ou de passage accidentel par-dessus bord sur la plus petite des rivières, explique Thevenot. Bien logiquement, l’auteur débute par l’art d’entrer dans l’eau et développe une panoplie de sauts et de plongeons, quelques-uns plutôt curieux. L’ouvrage examine ensuite u … [Click Below for Full Description]

DAHURON, René.
1696. Bradley III, p. 106; Janson, Pomona's harvest, pp. 164-167; VD17 23:645834Y (2 copies); WorldCat (3 other copies); cf. Hunt 395 (1696 ed). Very rare first edition of a treatise on cultivating, pruning, propagating and grafting trees, in particular fruit and nut trees, by the French gardener René Dahuron (1660-1730), royal gardener to the Duke of Braunschweig-Lüneburg at Celle from 1690 to 1701 and then to Wilhelm I, King of Prussia at Potsdam. The Hunt catalogue notes that it's "a rare little work, not listed in any of the larger botanical collections so far as we can find"; so rare, in fact, that they mistakenly suppose their 1696 edition is the first. That edition was also illustrated with woodcuts instead of engraved plates.The work also covers tree anatomy, growing seedlings in nurseries and "bastardières" (plots for grafted seedlings), soil preparation and planting, topiary, pest control and disease prevention. It closes with a calendar indicating when to plant fruit trees and harvest fruits, covering pear, apple, peach and plum trees. The plates depict various trees, from young and small ones to old ones, indicating where to prune. The work went through many editions and was also translated into German and Italian.Binding slightly soiled. Internally in very good condition, with only a few small spots.

A French composer and viol player, Marais "is one of the outstanding figures in French music of the Baroque period... Unlike Campra and others among his contemporaries, [he] did not write opéras-ballets and was never a supporter of the new italianate trend which became fashionable at the end of the 17th century. He preferred to develop the expressive possibilities of the … [Click Below for Full Description]
