        Satire di Salvatore Rosa Dedicate a Settano

      Presso Severo Protomastix, Amsterdam 1696 - N.d. Circa 1690. 12mo. 160 pp. Woodcut ornament on title. (Brunet IV 1390. 12mo. Gamba 2071) Contemporary vellum. Front joint repaired. Slight separation of lower rear joint. Restoration to upper corner of leaf pp 93/4. P. 107 with awkwardly cut margin. Considerable toning especially around text, but overall fine other than issues mentioned. Rosa is best known as a landscape painter but he also in his lifetime has a considerable reputation as a poet. His eventful, picaresque, and now mythologized life centered at various times around Naples, Rome and Florence. As a champion of artistic freedom, Rosa rejected the then prevalent patronage system in the artworld. In the satires Rosa attacked aspects of the music and art scene, and the most famous of the satires, "La Babilonia", took daring swipes at the clergy, leading to its placement on the Vatican's Index of prohibited works.

        [Title in Greek and in Latin] GRAECIAE DESCRIPTIO ACCURATA...cum Latina Romuli Amasaei interpretatione. Accesserunt Gul. Xylandri & Frid. Sylburgii annotationes, ac novae notae Joachimi Kuhnii

      Leipzig: Thomas Fritsch, 1696. First of this important and beautifully printed edition. With parallel text in Greek and Latin; printed in double columns, title printed in red and black, with engraved vignette of Pegasus, with woodcut head- and tail-pieces and with a folio presentation page beautifully printed and unique to this volume. Folio, in a fine binding of contemporary vellum, the covers with gilts coats of arms at the center, probably Dutch, surrounded by a wide gilt rolled panel with gilt corner devices, the spine with raised bands. (3 ff), (20), (1), 943, (72, index and appendix). A SUPERB PRINTING AND IMPORTANT COPY OF THIS LUXURIOUSLY PRODUCED WORK. A SUPERB PRINTING AND MAGNIFICENT COPY OF THIS LUXURIOUSLY PRODUCED WORK. WITH FINE GILT COATS OF ARMS AT THE CENTERS OF THE COVERS AND WITH A UNIQUE FOLIO PRESENTATION PAGE.<br> "The great original authority on Greece." Pausanias, probably a native of Lydia, lived in the second century A.D.--the time of Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius--and his work takes the form of a tour in the Peloponnesus and in part of northern Greece. It has no formal preface or introduction, but begins suddenly with the promontory of Sunium, the first point in Greece that would be seen by the voyager from Turkey, and it ends abruptly with an anecdote of a blind man of Naupactus. While following a strictly topographical order, Pausanias provides historical backgrounds and gives descriptions of memorials, religious art and architecture, interesting superstitions and customs of the people, and occasional notes on the natural features of products of a region.<br> The accuracy of Pausanias&#39; descriptions has been borne out by the remains of the buildings he describes. The most dramatic example of this is a note regarding the Lion-gate and the existing circuit wall of the Acropolis at Mycenae, in which the author mentions some tombs "within the wall." Heinrich Schliemann, following this hint, found the tombs during his excavations in the late nineteenth century.

        La Louisiane (Great Lakes) from Atlante Veneto

      Venice, 1696. VINCENZO CORONELLI&#39;S EARLY DEPICTION OF THE GREAT LAKES Copperplate engraving The most famous and meritoriuous globe-maker of his time, Coronelli also produced distinguished atlases and maps. His depiction of the Great Lakes, a notable example of his abilities, shows considerable detail to the waterways and rivers of the surrounding area. Vignettes of Indian life, and French settlements are shown throughout the then French territiory. Finer maps of the Great Lakes than those by Coronelli were not published again for many years.. They reflect a careful study of the works of Jaillot, Marquette, Hennepin, and like Jaillot, the Jesuit Realation map of Lake Superior (1672). This map of Louisiana focuses more closely on the Great Lakes than any of his other maps, and was exceedingly influential in its time. It was the most important depiction of the Great Lakes of the late Seventeenth Century.. Book.

        Map / Chart of North and South America- California as an Island)): Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meridionalis Tabula Per I. Danckerts.cum Privilegio.

      J. Danckerts, Amsterdam 1696 - Very good, early color with minor archival verso repairs to centerfold (expert). This is a very decorative image of the Americas with the California as an island format, and a decorative cartouche of natives, serpents. It is no accident that the cartouche design and imagery on these maps strongly resemble those of the Blaeus, as Danckerts borrowed liberally from his predecessor. The Solomon Islands are shown to the west., as are the Cape Verde, Fortunate and Azores to the east. The Danckerts were a multigenerational and prominent mapmaking family in Amsterdam. This is plate 1 from an atlas, depicting the western hemisphere with elaborate detail for the times. Much of the southeastern USA is then labelled as Florida, with the Mare Virginicum and Canadium notations present. This uncommon and handsome image (map #2, vol. II of Koeman's 1st edition "Atlantes Neerlandici"), with minimal browning, measures 19x23 inches (49x58cm).

        Catalogus Librorum Manuscriptorum Bibliothecae Cottonianae

      Oxford: e Theatro Sheldoniano 1696 - E Theatro Sheldoniano, Oxford., 1696. Folio, [xii],l,[ii],159,[25]pp. Contemporary leather boards, Modern reback in contemporary style. Wear to extremities. Internally excellent. End pages have browning and chipping, the rest of the book is clean and bright, without markings, excessive soiling or foxing. See our pictures. The library formed by Sir Robert Bruce Cotton (1571-1631) during the early seventeenth century was the major antiquarian collection in England at the time, and as early as the 1620s was a landmark in the political and cultural life of the country, containing as it did both outstanding literary manuscripts and important state records. The library counted Ben Jonson, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Francis Bacon among its borrowers. After his death the library passed successively to his son and grandson, and it was the latter, John, who authorized the publication by his librarian, Thomas Smith, of the first printed catalogue. This catalogue is particularly valuable, as it pre-dates the disastrous fire of 1731, which destroyed or damaged over two hundred of the manuscripts. Smithâ??s catalogue is therefore the prime record for volumes now lost. Smith also knew the Cotton family well and the Latin essays, with which he prefaced his catalogue, are an important source for the history of the family and for the development of the collection.

Testatine, capilettera e finalini xilografici. Incisioni n.t. - Testo in latino - Nervi al dorso e fregio al piatto superiore - Alcune numeri di pagina errati. Pagine molto brunite - First and only Latin edition of this important early work by John Selden. It is translated by Simon John Arnold from the English edition, which appeared for the first time in London in 1614.The second enlarged English folio edition was published in the same city in 1631, the third also in London in 1672 with an eulogy by Ben Johnson. Selden's great historical work on nobility begins with a general discussion of titles and nobility. The following chapters consider the nobility of ancient Greece and Rome, Europe, the British Isles, the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches, the Middle East and Asia. The final chapters survey various aspects of ceremony and precedence. The work is dedicated by Arnold to Margrave Albert Frideric of Brandenburg and Prussia, dated Sonnenburg, 24 August 1696, and by Selden to Edward Heyward, who was Selden's friend and chamber-fellow. After the dedications follow a laudatory poem by Ben Johnson and the preface by Selden. The work remained a comprehensive and trustworthy work for centuries. John Selden (1584-1654), was an English jurist, antiquary and scholar of England's ancient laws and constitution and scholar of Jewish law. He was known as a polymath of astounding intellectual depth and breadth; even John Milton, one of the greatest luminaries of 17th-century England, hailed Selden as "the chief of learned men reputed in this land". - Libro usato

        Opera Omnia duobus tomis distincta

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Hackius, et al, 1696. First collected edition. Two volumes in one vols., Folio. Engraved title page, 2 double-page and 6 full-page engraved plates. Contemporary vellum with central gilt-stamped arms on upper cover. Superb copy . Giraldi, Giglio Gregorio (Lilius Gregorius Gyraldus) 1470-1552) was an Italian scholar and poet, born at Ferrara, "where he early distinguished himself by his talents and acquirements. he removed to Naples, hwere he lived on familiar terms with Jovianus Pontanus and Sannazaro; and subsequently to Lombardy, where he enjoyed the favour of the Mirandola family. At Miland in 1507 he studied Greek under Chalcondylas; and shortly afterwards, at Modena, he became tutor to Ercole (afterwards Cardinal) Rangone. About the year 1514 he removed to Rome, where, under Clement VII, he held the office of apostolic protonotary; but having in the sack of that city (1527) which almost coincided with the death of his patron Cardinal Rangone, lost all his property, he returned in poverty once more to Mirandola, whence again he was driven by the troubles consequent on the assassination of the reigning prince in 1533. The rest of his life was one long struggle with ill-health, poverty and neglect; and he is alluded to with sorrowful regret by Montaigne in one of his Essais (i. 34) as having, like Sebastian Castalio, ended his days in utter destitution. He died at Ferrara a man of very extensive erudition; and numerous testimonies to his profundity and accuracy have been given both by contemporary and by later scholars. His HISTORIA marked a distinctly forward step in the systematic study of classical mythology; and by his treatises DE ANNIS ET MENSIBUS, and on the CALENDARIUM., he contributed to bring about the reform of the calendar, which was ultimately effected by Pope Gregory XIII. Giraldi was also an elegant Latin poet" (Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th ed.)

        A New Voyage to the East-Indies in the Year 1690 and 1691. Being a full Description of the Isles of Maldives, Cocos, Andamans, and the Isle of Ascension; and all the Forts and Garrisons now in possession of the French, with an Account of the Customs, Manners, and Habits of the Indians. By Monsieur Duquesne. To which is added, A New Description of the Canary Islands, Cape Verd, Senegal and Gambia &c. Done into English from the Paris Edition.

      London: Daniel Dring, 1696 - Octavo (164 × 104 mm) Contemporary sprinkled sheep, unlettered, double blind rules. A little rubbed, neatly rebacked and with some skillful restoration to the corners, light browning, slight stain to the fore-edge which does not carry to the margins, a very good copy. 2 folding maps, and 5 engraved plates. First editions in English. The first part is a translation of Pouchot de Chantassin's Relation du Voyage et Retour des Indes Orientales pendant les Années 1690 & 1691. Par un Garde de la Marine Servant sur le Bord de Monsieur Duquesne (Paris, 1692). His name is not given in this translation, but appears in the privilege to the French edition. "The author was employed in French factory posts set up in India, and travelled amongst the India Ocean Islands" (NMM). Pouchot's account of the fight "with fourteen Dutch and English ships" at Fort St. George (pp. 96&#150;105) is contested by Dampier in A New Voyage, explaining that he feels obliged to relate the story (which was given to him by "the Gunner's Mate of Capt. Heath's Ship, a very sensible Man") because "there is such a plausible Story made of it in Captain Duquesne's Late Voyage to the East-Indies" (I, p. 522). Dampier describes a rather inconclusive and desultory engagement, with the Dutch and English "fleet" being an accidental gathering of heavily laden and under-armed merchantmen, rather than the well-organized force under two admirals portrayed in the French account published here. The second part is a translation of Le Maire's Les voyages du Sieur Le Maire aux îles Canaries, Cap-Verd, Sénégal et Gambie sous Monsieur Dancourt (1695). Le Maire was a surgeon with the Compagnie d'Afrique; his well-observed narrative contains probably the first account of the Canary Islands written by a visitor, and perhaps more importantly his work remains an key source for the study of 17th-century West Africa, interactions between Africans and Europeans, and aspects of the slave trade.

Struve was a privy councilor to the prince of Saxony and a professor at the University of Jena. A leading jurist, he helped to develop a practical law for Germany derived from native sources rather than from Roman materials. He wrote three influential studies: Iurisprudentia Romano-Germano Forensis (1670), Syntagma Juris Feudalis (1659) and Syntagma Juris Civilis Universi (1658-83), which was reissued with the title Syntagma Jurisprudentia Secundum Ordinem Pandectarum.

Neu in dieser Ausgabe sind die beiden Schauspiele 'Cleomedes' und 'Sorbusia'. "Jedes Gedicht von Dach, dem Mittelpunkt des Königsberger Dichterkreises, hat den Charakter einfachster, innigster Kindlichkeit. Er ist einer der wenigen geborenen Dichter ... Sein dichterischer Umfang ist nicht groß, aber man kann sagen, er habe keinen toten Vers geschrieben, alles sei ihm zum Gesang geworden" (Wolfskehl im Katalog der Sammlung Manheimer).

        The Entire Works..., newly made English from the originals: wherein the history of acute and chronic diseases, and the safest and most effectual methods of treating them, are faithfully, clearly, and accurately delivered. To which are added, explanatory and practical notes, from the best medicinal writers.

      First edition of Swan?s translation, and the first publication of Samuel Johnson's seven-page ?Life of Dr. Sydenham.? The publisher of this edition, Edward Cave, was the originator of the Gentleman?s Magazine, which printed some of Samuel Johnson?s first published work. It seems likely that Swan was introduced to Cave who commissioned this translation and then commissioned a biography from Johnson. The ?Life? was reprinted in the Gentleman's Magazine later in the year (December).Swan?s was the second edition in English of Sydenham?s complete works, after Pechey?s of 1696, but it was Swan?s edition that became the main English source for Sydenham?s thoughts until that of R.G. Latham in two volumes (1848?"50) superseded it. ?The sound judgement and acute observations of Thomas Sydenham, the English Hippocrates, freed clinical medicine from the last vestiges of medievalism, and set the pattern for further progress?

        Les Caractères de Theophraste traduits du grec avec les caractères ou les moeurs de ce Siècle. Neuvième Edition

      chez Adrian Moetjens, La Haye 1696 - In-12 reliure plein veau d'époque, dos orné, (12) ff., 500 - XXXIV - 20 pp. D'après Servois, " cette contrefaçon imprimée la même année que la neuvième de Paris, en est la reproduction. S'il est vrai quelle fut une publication hollandaise, on pourrait s'étonner que l'éditeur n'ait pas ressenti les scrupules qui ont déterminé l'imprimeur de Bruxelles, Léonard, à supprimer les pages où la Bruyère attaquait le roi Guillaume et ses alliés ; mais M. Caudin nous affirme que l'édition a été imprimée en France, probablement à Lyon ". Toujours d'après Servois, il existerait deux contrefaçons de la dernière édition originale : la nôtre (1696) et une éditée en 1698 avec une clef différente en fin d'ouvrage de 24 pp. sur deux colonnes. (G. Servois, oeuvres de la Bruyère T; IV, p. 44, § 14). Exemplaire en très bonne condition dans sa reliure d'époque. Rare.

Januar 1736 in Amsterdam), er war ein Schweizer Theologe und Philologe. "Leclerc setzte sich für eine kritische Interpretation der Bibel ein, brach deswegen mit dem Calvinismus und musste Genf verlassen. 1682 ging er nach London, zog aber schon im nächsten Jahr weiter nach Amsterdam und lehrte dort am Kollegium der Remonstranten."
