COLLIER, Jeremy
for S. Keble, R. Sare, and H. Hindmarsh. 1698 Jeremey Collier Short View of English Theater Puritan Plays Literature Wars “A celebrated work which effected a reformation in the theatre.” (Lowndes) Jeremy Collier was a 17th-century English theater critic who, in 1698, wrote a highly controversial attack on English comedies. ‘Short View of the Immorality and Profaneness of the English Stage’ was filled with Collier’s views on what he considered to be profanity and immorality in English plays. He believed plays should be providing moral encouragement rather than encouraging unethical vices. Immediately after Collier’s ‘Short View’ was released, playwrights quickly responded with their own attacks on Collier’s views. Naturally, Collier published his own defense of his ‘Short View’ which focused heavily on the content William Congreve’s plays. These works became important to the literary war between Puritan restrictions and English dramatists!

Die von ihm betriebene Trennung der englischen Kirche von Rom und die Errichtung der Anglikanischen Staatskirche mit dem König selbst als Oberhaupt hatten weitreichende religiöse, soziale und politische Folgen für die weitere Geschichte Englands. Als jüngerer Sohn König Heinrichs VII. und der Elizabeth of York wurde Heinrich nach dem unerwarteten Tod seines älteren Bruders Arthur im Jahr 1502 Thronerbe. Mit dem Tod seines Vaters am 21. April 1509 wurde er siebzehnjährig der zweite Herrscher des Hauses Tudor auf dem englischen Thron. Seine Krönung im Juni 1509 wurde von der Bevölkerung euphorisch gefeiert und war nach den englischen Rosenkriegen die erste friedliche Thronbesteigung seit beinahe 100 Jahren.

[LADMIRAL, Jan] and Bernard Siegfried ALBINUS.
First edition of the first of six pioneering colour mezzotints, this one drawn by the German-born Dutch anatomist Albinus: one of the earliest applications of colour printing and the first colour-printed anatomical illustration by Jan Ladmiral, depicting the intestinal wall (muscularis mucosae) of a human being, with an explanation of the plate in Latin, French and Dutch.The painter Jan Ladmiral (1698-1773) and his brother Jacob were pupils and assistants of Jacob Christoph le Blon in London, who invented the method of mezzotint colour printing. It seems that when Ladmiral offered his services to the famous Albinus in Leiden, he presented this technique as entirely new and his own, without ever mentioning le Blon. Ladmiral produced 6 such anatomical illustrations for 6 separate publications, later published under the joint title: Anatomische voorwerpen door Jan Ladmiral. The main text of this first one is set in Nicolas Kis's roman type, with the first paragraph in his italic.The letterpress leaves foxed, with a water stain and small marginal wormholes, but the illustration in very good condition.Franklin, Colour printing, pp. 41-42, item 1; Landwehr, Coloured Plates 3; Lilly library 101; Wellcome Lib., p. 26; not in Norman Library.

Une petite déchirure angulaire sans manque p.55.L'écriture des Caractères commence dès 1670, mais c'est seulement après 17 ans de travail que La Bruyère se décide à les publier. Il est pourtant si peu sûr du succès qu'il donne la précellence au texte de Théophraste plutôt qu'à sa traduction dans les permières éditions et il faudra attendre la cinquième pour que s'affirme son oeuvre devant celle de l'auteur grec, et qu'enfin La Bruyère signe l'édition de son nom.Agréable exemplaire en reliure de l'époque. *** [English translation available upon request.

Or, the ballance of our <span class="match">forraign</span> <span class="match">trade</span> is the rule of our <span class="match">treasure</span>. "The title of this book became, in Adam Smith's words, 'a fundamental maxim in the political economy not of Engl<span class="match">and</span> only, but of all other commercial countries'. It gave Mun his claim to the title of founder of the mercantile system of political economy" (DNB). Small octavo, bound in full contemporary calf. Period ownership names to the front free endpapers.

Adriaen van der Werff (* 21. Januar 1659 in Kralingen-Ambacht, Rotterdam; ? 12. November 1722 in Rotterdam) war ein niederländischer Maler. Aus; Histoire d'Angleterre d'Ecosse, et d'Irlande. Heinrich VIII. Tudor (englisch Henry Tudor; * 28. Juni 1491 in Greenwich; ? 28. Januar 1547 im Whitehall-Palast, London) war von 1509 bis 1547 König von England, seit 1509 Herr und ab 1541 König von Irland. Die von ihm betriebene Trennung der englischen Kirche von Rom und die Errichtung der Anglikanischen Staatskirche mit dem König selbst als Oberhaupt hatten weitreichende religiöse, soziale und politische Folgen für die weitere Geschichte Englands. Als jüngerer Sohn König Heinrichs VII. und der Elizabeth of York wurde Heinrich nach dem unerwarteten Tod seines älteren Bruders Arthur im Jahr 1502 Thronerbe. Mit dem Tod seines Vaters am 21. April 1509 wurde er siebzehnjährig der zweite Herrscher des Hauses Tudor auf dem englischen Thron. Seine Krönung im Juni 1509 wurde von der Bevölkerung euphorisch gefeiert und war nach den englischen Rosenkriegen die erste friedliche Thronbesteigung seit beinahe 100 Jahren. Heinrich VIII. war der erste englische König mit einer Renaissanceausbildung, er sprach mehrere Sprachen, verfasste Gedichte, komponierte Musik und zeigte großes Interesse an religiösen Themen.

Édition princeps, tirée de l'œuvre manuscrite de Jacob Twinger von Königshoven (1346-1420) et publiée par Jean Schiltern. Elle est ornée d'un titre-frontispice, de 6 planches par Seüdel, dont deux plans dépliants. Impression en caractères gothiques, avec titre en rouge et noir. Importante chronique historique consacrée à l'Allemagne et à l'Alsace. Elle comprend à la suite une chronique sur les origines de la ville de Fribourg. Jacques Twinger, de Koenigshoffen, issu d'une famille patricienne de Strasbourg, chanoine de Saint-Thomas depuis 1395, rédige sa chronique allemande (après en avoir écrit une latine, perdue), entre 1392 et 1420, date de sa mort. Cette chronique court jusqu'en 1400. Comme il le dit dans sa préface, il s'adresse aux laïcs cultivés, ne veut pas s'en tenir aux vieilles histoires, mais veut raconter les faits contemporains « qui sont lus avec plus d'intérêt que les choses anciennes », et particulièrement les événements remarquables qui se sont produits en Alsace et à Strasbourg. Kœnigshofen ne rompt cependant avec la tradition, et sa chronique est d'inspiration typiquement médiévale, surtout quand on la compare à celle de Froissart, à peu près contemporaine. Il débute par la création du monde et manifeste le souci d'écrire une histoire universelle en même temps que strasbourgeoise et remonte toujours jusqu'aux plus lointaines origines.

Malpighi's name is born by several physiological features related to the biological excretory system, such as the Malpighian corpuscules and Malpighian pyramids of the kidneys and the Malpighian tubule system of insects. The botanical family Malpighiaceae is also named after him. He was the first person to see capillaries in animals, and he discovered the link between arteries and veins that had eluded William Harvey.

OTTENS, Reiner and Josua
1698. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19 3/4 x 23 inches. Sheet measures 22 x 26 inches. Lovely map of Sri Lanka and part of India including Adams Bridge (limestone shoals between India and Sri Lanka, perhaps formerly constituting a land bridge also called Rama Setu) and two elegant cartouches. Staining throughout some toning otherwise good. Reiner and Joshua Ottens (1698-1750 and 1704-1765) took over their father's map-making business in 1725. They were known best for producing enormous made-to-order map collections, including copies of almost all maps available at the time. This map is a good example of their work.

PHAEDRUS
Henricum Wetstenium. 1698 1st ed Greek Literature Phaedrus Fables Aesop Stoic Philosophy Burmann Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden. Phaedrus Phaedrus was a 1st-century fabulist and Roman poet known for his five books of verse fables. Many of his tales are adaptions of Aesop s famous tales, but he does include his own new stories as well. One major difference between Aesop and Phaedrus, however, is Phaedrus s treatment of the moral. Phaedrus emphasized the moral of the story much more than Aesop did. This edition of Phaedrus s Fables contains the commentary of Guidius, Ritterhusius, and Rigaltius. It also is considered to be widely accepted as a useful and correct edition, but it did not break new ground in the fable style . It was edited by Petrus Burmannus (Peter Burmann), a professor at Utrecht. His editions of Greek and Roman classics have all been considered acceptable to other intellects. In Burmannus s preface he tells the reader, the basis for this edition was laid by the German collector of Greek and Latin manuscripts Gudius . Moss claims this edition to be held in considerable estimation and is indeed a success. It was found to be reprinted and reissued several times during the next century. A fine woodcut frontispiece by Tiedeman and Mulder, which depicts Phaedrus writing while he listens to the Muse, in the background is Aesop surrounded by his fable animals.
