Spener, Philipp Jacob
Franckfurt am Mayn, In verlegung Johann David Zunners / Im Jahr Christi 1696.. 4°. Titelblatt in schwarz-rotem Druck, (10), 1052 [richtig 1060], (4) Seiten. Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden.. VD17, 1:020995K. - Grünberg 63. - Bircher C2483. - Der ordentliche Pergamentband vor allem am Hinterdeckel gering fleckig und etwas berieben. Auf dem Vorderdeckel Abdruck eines Wasserglases und verblaßte ältere Tintenspuren. - Innen durchgehend leicht gebräunt, Vorsätze stärker. - Insgesamt gutes und sauberes Exemplar der für die pietistischen Glaubensinhalte eminent wichtigen Wiedergeburtspredigten, die den Buß- und Bekehrungsweg der Gläubigen vom verlorenen Sünder über den reuigen Büßer bis hin zum wiedergeborenen Christen illustrieren und somit eine sehr persönliche "subtilitas applicandi" pietistischer Bibelhermeneutik bieten. Mit der Wiedergeburt des geistlichen Menschen ist nach Spener die Vergebung der Sünden und der Beginn eines gottgefälligen Lebens verbunden; freilich kann der Wiedergeborene dieses Lebens wieder verlustig gehen; die ständige Prüfung der eigenen Rechtgläubigkeit ist damit ein ständiger, nicht endender und mühevoller Prozeß. - Das Leitbild des "Wiedergeborenen" und dessen "praxis pietatis" ist das zentrale Motiv der pietistischen Erweckungs-Bewegung, verlagert den Begriff von rechtem Glauben in den Bereich der innerlichen Erlebniswirklichkeit und befördert damit die Introspektion, die Selbst-Vergewisserung und letztlich damit die Aufklärung (als "Ausgang des Menschen aus seiner selbstverschuldeten Unmündigkeit") bis hin zur Empfindsamkeit und se … [Click Below for Full Description]

RUYSCH, FREDERIK.
Amsterdam, J. Wolters, 1696. 4to. Cont. marbled boards pigskin-backed. Titlelabel in leather, gilt. Back a little rubbed. Internally fine with broad margins and clean, printed on good paper. 13,16,16,16,10,(2),12,(2),14,13,(1),13,(1) pp. and 10 fine engraved plates, known for their accuracy and details. ¶ First editions of the 9 tracts called "Epistolae", of which in all 14 were issued, containg Ruysch's answers to anatomical and physiological propositions proposed by different authors. <br>"Ruysch, professor of anatomy at Leyden and Amsterdam, is notable for his method of injecting vessels. The recipe for the material used by Ruysch has remained a secret. He gave the first description of bronchial blood vessels and vascular plexuses of the heart, demonstrated the valves of the lymphatics, and made a great number of other importent discoveries in anatomy" (Garrison & Morton). - Ruysch's prepartions of corpses were known for their dramatic appearences. He prepared e.g. the corpse of a child as it were alive so that Pater the Great was inclined to kiss it. His preparations was well known by the public, many were exhibited in different places, and in 1717 Peter the Great bought his collection for 30.000 Guilders. Some of the items are still held by The Museum of the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. - Wellcome IV:pp. 597-98.

SCHENK, Peter (1645-1715)
Amsterdam: P. Schenk, 1696. Copper-engraved map, full period hand colouring. 21 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. Lovely 17th century map of North and South America with California as an island. This elegant map is noted for its cartouches designed by Romein de Hooghe. "The most notable feature of this map is the two separate titles for North and South America. These, it is believed, are etched by the noted artist Romein de Hooghe. The cartography reflects that typical of the period for Amsterdam. Five Great Lakes are shown, the two western ones being left open to the west, there is an old style depiction of the Mississippi basin, and California is depicted in a Foxe style insular format" (Burden).

Thomas Smith
Oxford: e Theatro Sheldoniano, 1696. Leather Bound. Very Good. 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. <br><br> 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. Smith'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.

When he reached the Papal city of Avignon, after a week on icy roads, he revealed to his followers that he was really going to Spain, to get the help to invade England that he was not getting from France. In so doing he was hijacking his brother Henry Benedict, who had proposed to do just that.himself. The previous September, after 5 months in the heather following Culloden, Bonnie Prince Charlie was the most famous man in Europe. He took ship with the French from Loch nan Uamh on 20th September (old style) and landed at Roscoff.on10th October (new style). He arrived in Paris to enormous cheering crowds. One of the first to entertain him to supper was the Comte d'Argenson, who had kept abreast of his campaign with frequent reports from the Marquis d'Éguilles. (D'Éguilles. was captured at Culloden but freed after negotiating the surrender of Inverness). However, the honeymoon lasted only about a fortnight. Charles began demanding help for an invasion of England, which the French refused. They talked only in terms of a small expedition to Scotland. He had no gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Smith
At the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, 1696. [10],L,159,[24]; engraved frontispiece portrait; folio; original stamped vellum boards slightly warped and lightly soiled; short split at top of upper hinge; scattered foxing. A very good copy overall, with the ownership inscription of Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1655-1716), Scottish patriot, politician and writer. One of the three collections acquired by the British government to form the British Museum Library, the library of Sir Robert Bruce Cotton is "arguably the most important collection of manuscripts ever assembled in Britain by a private individual." (Wright, Sir Robert Cotton as Collector). Its greatness lies not only in the presence of spectacular treasures (such as the Lindisfarne Gospels and the only surviving manuscript of Beowulf) but also as the product of Cotton's forty-year effort to preserve manuscript materials, principally relating to England's history and governmental affairs, that would have otherwise likely been lost. Located in Cotton House in the Palace of Westminster, the library was housed in a narrow room measuring 37' x 6', in an unusual arrangement. A bronze bust of each of the Roman emperors, from Julius Caesar to Domitian (plus Cleopatra and Faustina) was mounted at the head of each bookpress. This "Emperor" designation for a bookpress formed part of the pressmark and was the means by which a particular manuscript volume was located. Compiled by Thomas Smith (1638-1710), the catalogue lists about 6,500 manuscripts in 950 volumes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Coronelli, Vincenzo Maria:
Venice, c. 1696. Copper engraving, 43 x 27 cms, black and white, restoration to elaborate border dividing the two images (3 x 0.4 cms hole neatly closed), blank verso; from 'Isolario dell'Atlante Veneto', perhaps the last of the great Italian ‘island books'. If Coronelli's St Paul's differs somewhat from the cathedral we know, it's worth bearing in mind that Wren's building only came into use in 1697 and was officially completed in 1708. Print

UPPER LEFT CORNER WITH A VERY LARGE ENGRAVED PORTRAIT OF THE KING (measuring approximately 240 x 220 mm., including its calligraphic surround), the first words of the document ("Gulielmus Tertius Dei") in large, bold, calligraphic letters across the full length of the document, and WITH A LOVELY SWIRLING ENGRAVED INHABITED ACANTHUS BORDER IN THE TOP MARGIN, incorporating a pheasant, a rampant lion, an eagle, a stork, and a unicorn.

PAUSANIAS
Leipzig: Thomas Fritsch, 1696. Title in red and black with engraved printer's device, woodcut chapter initials, head- and tailpieces. Text in Greek and Latin in parallel columns. Bound in full period calf, spine elaborately gilt in compartments; minor wormhole running through margin of second half of text (slightly larger towards end); light age toning, still an exceptionally bright and crisp copy. From the library of the eminent Shakespeare scholar Charles Tyler Prouty, with his bookplate, as well as those of the accomplished palaeographer and classical historian Ellis H. Minns and Sir George W. Denys. Contemporary inscription to fly-leaf as well as some occasional Greek and Latin marginalia. Originally printed in 1516, this valuable edition of Pausanias' description of Greece is considered by many to be the best edition. It is especially noteworthy for the detailed descriptions and broad array of information on ancient Greece, including its history, geography, and architecture, and has been exceptionally useful in the archaeological exploration of a number of ancient cities, including Olympia, Athens, Delphi and Argolis. Without Pausanias' monumental achievement, our modern understanding of classical culture, especially in the areas of religious cults, mythology, folk-lore and, above all, Greek art, would not be the same. Of major significance is Joachim Kühn's (1647-97) editing based upon notes he found in the margins of the original Aldine text belonging to Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614). Casaubon, a French Hugeuonot and son-in-law of printer-scholar Henri & … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEVENOT, Melchisedech
Paris: Thomas Moette, 1696. FIRST EDITION. Both blanks present. With 35 full-page plates. Tree skin calf binding, gilt spine, edges stained red; corners slightly rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition of this extremely scarce treatise on swimming, considered one of the earliest books on the subject. In the introduction, the author notes only two earlier works known to him, Digby's De arte natandi (1587) and Nicholas Wynman's dialogue, Colymbetes (1538). Translated into English in 1699, Thévenot's manual became the standard eighteenth-century reference for learning to swim. Among many topics, he discusses ways of getting into the water, various aquatic feats and maneuvers, and stroke technique. Following Thévenot's description, the breaststroke became the most common swimming motion for centuries. The text is complimented by lively illustrations throughout engraved by Charles Moette. An amateur scientist, Thévenot (1620-1692) studied astronomy, physics, medicine, and magnetism. Born into nobility, the wealthy and erudite Thévenot was also an important patron to innumerable scientists and mathematicians. He was equally a renowned cartographer and traveler, served as a diplomat in Italy, and was the Royal Librarian to King Louis XIV.

[London, 1696. First edition. 1 vols. Sm 4to. Disbound, chipping and losses from removed stitching, margins closely trimmed and cropped with text loss, on the first eight pages the loss is generally a letter or part of a word so that the content is understandable, thereafter a line of text is missing on each page as well as the letters or parts of words trimmed from the margins, these losses do not seem to greatly affect comprehension of Killigrew's plan, two overlay slips to correct text on page [4] and another on page [8], some soiling. First edition. 1 vols. Sm 4to. This is Killigrew's proposal for allaying the national debt by a system of bonds and paper specie. He had presented a similar proposal in the early reign of William and Mary, and apparently revives it here with additions and answers to some of his critics. Kress and the DNB give 1663 as the date of publication but he makes references to "the reign of Charles II" and in the "Clause" the notation "To carry on the War the year 97" appears. Killigrew died in October 1695. Following this pamphlet is a single leaf entitled "To the Honourable the Knights, Citizens and Burgesses in Parliament Assembled, The Humble Petition of Percivall Brunskell, Gent."
